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.
