Applied Algebra and Geometry Research Network

This research network brings together UK academics who are interested in applications of algebra and geometry, and related algebraically-minded fields, be it commutative algebra, representation theory, group theory, process algebras, as well as algebraic geometry, category theory, and algebraic topology. The scope extends to computational algebra for applications including data-science, biology, medicine, engineering, physics, etc.

The activities of the Applied Algebra and Geometry research network are funded by the London Mathematical Society, the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, and the Glasgow Mathematical Journal Trust and a new grant from the Isaac Newton Institute.
