Focused on fundamental research in pure mathematics and mathematical physics, the theme covers algebraic geometry, algebraic number theory, algebraic topology, category theory, geometric group theory, non-commutative algebra, mathematical physics and representation theory.

Seminars

EDGE Seminar

The Geometry seminar is held every Tuesday, 3:30-4:30pm normally in the main seminar room at the Bayes Centre (5th floor, room 5.10), but for up-to-date information follow the link on the right.

EMPG Seminar

The seminars of  the Edinburgh Mathematical Physics Group (EMPG) take place on Wednesday afternoons. For further information on EMPG, its members and the seminar times following the link on the right.

MAXIMALS Seminar

The seminar take place on Tuesday afternoons. For the seminar times check the link on the right

Mathematical Physics

Quantum field theory, conformal field theory, topological and integrable solitons,  integrability, statistical mechanics, gauge theory, twistor theory,  string theory, non-commutative geometry in string theory, field theory and quantum gravity, geometry of supersymmetry and supergravity, AdS/CFT duality, holography, black holes, aspects of quantum gravity. For details, see the webpage of the Edinburgh Mathematical Physics Group (EMPG). 

Algebra and Representation Theory

Algebraic combinatorics, Lie theoretic representation theory, noncommutative algebra, noncommutative geometry, representations of quivers. For  details see the webpage of the Hodge Institute.

Algebraic and Symplectic Geometry

Birational algebraic geometry, derived categories and their applications, moduli spaces, derived algebraic geometry, singularity theory, toric geometry. For  details see the webpage of the Hodge Institute.

Groups, semigroups and geometry

Geometric, combinatorial and computational group theory, low-dimensional topology, groups and connections to theoretical computer science, group actions in nonpositive curvature, semigroups and operator algebras

algebraic topology and Category theory

We have strong and well-developed interests in higher-dimensional algebraic topology, category theory and its applications, and the geometry of algebraic numbers. For  details see the webpage of the Hodge Institute.
