Department of Mathematics: Algebra and Geometry


Lifecycle:1 Jan 1993  →  Today
Organisation profile:The research of the department is situated in the area of fundamental mathematics, more precisely in algebra and geometry. Some of the central themes of our research are: (1) finding connections between group theory and non-associative algebraic structures; (2) the study of Tits buildings and related geometrical objects; (3) the study of topological groups acting on geometrical structures; (4) the study of exceptional groups (including the famous E8); (5) the study of finite geometrical structures and their substructures.
Disciplines:Group theory and generalisations , Algebraic topology, Topological groups, Lie groups, Algebraic geometry
