About MCAG

Computational Algebraic Geometry is one of the most classical and exciting areas of mathematics. It is also one of the most applicable branches of mathematics with applications in physics, engineering, robotics, computer vision, signal processing, computer security, etc.

MCAG group is a network of algebraic geometers in Michigan and surrounding areas in order to encourage collaboration, exploration of new applications, and stronger connections to industry.

The group will organize yearly conferences in different Michigan institutions, training sessions for students, and encourage collaboration among different Mathematics departments from Michigan.

The activities of the group are decided by its Board:


  • T. Shaska, Oakland University
  • Dan Erman, University of Michigan
  • Charles Wampler, GM Research and Development
Local Organizers
  • Dan Steffy
  • Lubjana Beshaj
  • Valmira Hoxha
