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.
We are pleased to announce that our colleague Gargi Mukjerhee has successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis today. Her thesis was written in the framework of the FWF-funded doctoral program computational mathematics under the supervision of Manuel Kauers. It contains some interesting new results related to log-concavity properties of the overpartition function. A part of her work has been accepted for publication in the Ramanujan Journal, further articles are currently under review. We congratulate Gargi on her accomplishments and wish her all the best for her academic future.
Monika Peterseil transfers administrative responsibilities for the institute to her successor Cornelia Strasser.
The book edited by Michael Singer and Clemens Raab on the milestones of integration in finite terms has just appeared.
We are happy to support the national team of Ukraine by organizing a training and selection camp in Linz.
