Abstract: The very large scale integration (VLSI) placement problem is NP-hard, and many placement constraints on a chip must be considered. It is a great challenge to design efficient and effective algorithms for the VLSI placement problem with different constraints, especially for handling circuit designs with millions of objects. In this talk, from the view of mathematical methods, I will try to discuss the characteristics of VLSI placement problem, and introduce some of our work on this problem. 


Bio: Jianli Chen received the B.Sc. degree in information and computing sciences, the M.Sc. degree in computer application technology, and the Ph.D. degree in applied mathematics, all from Fuzhou University, in 2007, 2009, and 2012, respectively.
