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.

Anatolii Zhuchok receives a JESH Fellowship award

Prof. Anatolii Zhuchok from the Luhansk Taras Shevchenko National University has just arrived for an extended research stay at the Institute for Algebra. His stay is financed by a JESH grant of the Austrian Academy of Science. In his project entitled "Congruences on free Loday-type algebras", Prof. Zhuchok will be able to continue his research of a series of the least congruences on some free Loday-type algebras. We are grateful to Prof. em. Guenter Pilz for his dedicated support in setting up this project.

OeMG-Förderungspreis for Oliver Roche-Newton

We congratulate our colleague Oliver Roche-Newton on being awarded the 2022 Förderungspreis of the Austrian Mathematical Society. The prize is awarded every year to a promising young mathematician for outstanding achievements. It consists of a prize money of 1000 Euros, a dedicated medal, and an invitation to speak at the next annual meeting of the OeMG. The prize was established in 1955, and the list of past winners includes a number of famous Austrian mathematicians.
