Algebra research group
We are part of the Bernoulli Institute at the University of Groningen.
Our research focuses on geometry and its applications to number theory, mathematical physics and differential equations. In particular, this includes algebraic and arithmetic geometry, as well as supergeometry and quantisation. Some of our research is concerned with explicit methods in arithmetic geometry and complex multiplication theory.
Seminars
- Our research seminar
- Intercity Number Theory Seminar
- North German Algebraic Geometry Seminar (NoGAGS)
Clusters
We take part in the NWO clusters
- Discrete, Interactive and Algorithmic Mathematics, Algebra and Number Theory (DIAMANT)
- Geometry and Quantum Theory (GQT)
Student projects
If you are interested in a Bachelor or Master project in one of the research areas of our group, contact one of the members of the group. See our teaching page for recent bachelor and master projects in our group.
