Dr. Vigoda's research focuses on randomized algorithms, particularly Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms. Vigoda's acclaimed result (with collaborators M. Jerrum and A. Sinclair) is an efficient algorithm for estimating the permanent of a matrix.
His work has connections to phase transitions in Statistical Physics and phylogenetic reconstruction in Evolutionary Biology.
