Abstract: This collection of reports is divided into two sections. The first contains the research summaries for individual faculty members and research associates in the Computer Science Department. Two professors from Electrical Engineering are included as "Affiliated Faculty' because their interests are closely related to those of the Department, while Professors George Dantzig and Roger Schank do not appear because they were on leave and unavailable when the summaries were prepared. The second section gives an overview of the activities of research groups in the Department. "Group" here is taken to imply many different things, including people related by various degrees of intellectual interests, physical proximity, or funding considerations. We have tried to describe any group whose scope of interest is greater than that of one person. The list of recent publications for each is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather to give a feeliny for the range of topics considered. This collection of reports has been assembled to provide a reasonably comprehensive review of research activities in the Department. We hope that it will be widely useful -- in particular, students in the Department may find it helpful in discovering interesting projects and possible thesis topics. We expect also that it will be of interest to many other people, both within and outside the Department.
