The Mathematical and Computational Sciences at Western are represented by four separate departments: Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistical & Actuarial Sciences. The Department of Mathematics has established research groups in several areas of contemporary mathematics including algebra, analysis and analytic geometry, homotopy theory, and noncommutative geometry.

Upcoming Events

Each week the Department of Mathematics hosts a wide variety of seminars and events. For a comprehensive list of events, please consult our departmental calendar.

Much of the fascination with arrangements of
complex hyperplanes comes from the rich interplay
between the combinatorics of the intersection lattice
and the algebraic topology of the complement. A key
bridge between the two is provided by the resonance
varieties of the cohomology ring and by the characteristic
varieties of the fundamental group. This approach helps
explain how certain homological invariants associated to
the Milnor fibration of the complement can be computed
in terms of multinets supported by the underlying matroid.

This two-days workshop will consist of research talks by experts on three aspects of the subject:
I) Spectral invariants of noncommutative spaces and the spectral action principle,
II) Applications to the standard model of particle physics,
III) Cyclic cohomology and Hopf algebras.
