VLSI design (the making of a very large and complex computer system)
An important application of this idea is likely to be in VLSI design.
Sussman has also worked in computer languages, in computer architecture and in VLSI design.
Other applications, often studied in operations research, include plant and facility layout, robotics, transportation, and VLSI design".
The motivation of Leighton in studying crossing numbers was for applications to VLSI design in theoretical computer science.
In 1995 he received the Best Paper Award at the 8th International Conference on VLSI Design.
Design closure is the process by which a VLSI design is modified from its initial description to meet a growing list of design constraints and objectives.
One of the companies building computers for VLSI design was Daisy Systems, where Vinod Khosla worked at the time.
There are active groups working in computational complexity, graphics, parallel and distributed systems, theory of computation and VLSI design using both formal and informal methods.
