RESEARCH

I am interested in algorithms and computational complexity, particularly in convex relaxations, discrete and combinatorial optimisation, graph homomorphisms, and submodularity. Most of my work lies at the intersection of the above, namely it is on constraint satisfaction problems (CSP) in its many forms (approximation, counting, decision, optimisation, promise).

From the currently available courses in Oxford's Department of Computer Science, the most relevant ones are Computational Complexity, and Probability and Computing (I used to lecture the latter).

My CV is available here.

All my publications are available online.

Trivia

My official first name is Stanislav but I go by Standa /'stʌn.da/, which is a commonly used Czech variant/diminutive of Stanislav.

My last name Živný /'ʒiv.ni:/ has two diacritics called the caron and acute accent respectively; this can be achieved in LaTeX by \v{Z}ivn\'{y}.

For various reasons I try to minimise travel but you can always visit me (virtually) in Oxford.
