Math professor at the board

Our faculty research interests span a number of areas of contemporary mathematics including algebraic groups and monoids, algebraic stacks, algebraic combinatorics, combinatorial algebra, derived categories, Galois cohomology and quadratic forms, motivic homotopy theory, applications of homotopy theory to computer science, quantum groups and Hopf algebras, toric varieties, noncommutative geometry, local analytic geometry, complex and CR-geometry, sympletic geometry and topology, harmonic analysis, singularity theory, and mathematical physics.

Please see faculty and postdoctoral Research Profiles on their respective webpages.

The Department maintains a number of active seminar and colloquia series that attract some of the world's most prominent mathematicians. 

  • Colloquium
  • The Distinguished Lecture Series
  • Algebra Seminar
  • Analysis Seminar
  • Geometry & Topology Seminar
  • Noncommutative Geometry Seminar
