Welcome at the Institute for Algebra


Algebra is one of the classical branches of mathematics. We represent this area in research and teaching, providing the theoretical foundations that are used in many other areas of science.


Our institute covers several topics from algebra. One focus of our work is computer algebra, that is the development of algorithms for the automatic solution of algebraic problems. Another focal point of work is Universal Algebra, which deals with abstract generalizations of classical algebraic structures. A third focus is finally the theory of nearrings, which has been developed significantly in Linz in recent decades.

Prof. Kauers joins the editorial board of the Journal of Computational Algebra.

The Journal of Computational Algebra is a recently founded open access journal published by Elsevier. Its editorial board under the direction of Prof. Alexander Hulpke from Colorado State University welcomes articles on novel research about computation in, and with, algebraic or discrete structures, such that both mathematics and algorithms contribute to the new result. Prof. Kauers has just accepted an invitation to join the editorial board of this new journal. Prof. Kauers is also on the editorial boards of the Journal of Symbolic Computation, Advanced in Applied Mathematics, Annals of Combinatorics, and the Journal of Systems Science and Complexity.
