Algebra studies the fundamental structures in mathematics, for example, polynomials, prime numbers, groups, fields.
These mathematical structures are ubiquitous objects that occur in many parts of mathematics, but can also be used to understand strategical games (Chess, Tic-Tac-Toe,..), puzzles (Rubik’s cube) or origami. This is one reason why techniques and results of Algebra can be used
Our group teaches fundamental classes in Algebra and is active in research both on the abstract as well as on the applied sides of algebra.
Our main focus areas cover Applied and Real Algebraic Geometry, Coding theory, Homological Algebra, Number Theory, and Polynomial Optimization.
Here are recent preprints and publications by our members.
Our seminar takes place every second week, on Friday, 2-3 p.m., in a hybrid form. If you wish to attend and/or give a talk, please contact Philippe Moustrou and/or Cordian Riener.
