The focus of MAGNeT is on mathematical modelling and simulation of computer and communication networks. Problems such as routing, congestion control, pricing in the Internet, power control in case of ad hoc networks are some of the active areas of research.

A simulation requires proofs of validity at various stages for the results to be accepted as correct. The group intends to gather expertise in the areas of mathematical models, verification of models, simulator implementation, validation, and lastly result analysis.

The group also focuses on formulation of various problems in computer networks in terms of optimization problems and their solution through optimization/heuristic methods.
