Welcome to the research group of Dr [[Abubakr Muhammad]]. CYPHYNETS is based at the LUMS School of Science & Engineering [http://sse.lums.edu.pk SSE]. We do research in systems engineering, applied mathematics and applied physics. We do both fundamental and applied research in complex systems, computational geometry & topology, quantum information sciences, robotics, networked sensing and feedback control theory. One of our main focus is the development of [[CPS|Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS)]] for welfare and infrastructure development in the context of Pakistan and the third world. Our motto is [[researchportfolio|Basic research for basic problems]]!.
