Algebra

The traditional objects of study in algebra are algebraic structures such as groups, rings, and modules. However, the developments of the last decades have increasingly emphasised the subject's connections with other areas of mathematics and science, such as geometry, topology, classical and quantum field theory, integrable systems, and theoretical computing science.

Here in Glasgow, we study both classical and modern problems and questions in algebra. For more details about our staff member's interests, please follow the links below.
