CASM WORKSHOP ON ALGEBRA AND APPLICATIONS

LAHORE UNIVERSITY OF MANAGEMENT SCIENCES

9TH – 10TH DECEMBER 2016

 

In modern day mathematics, algebra has found numerous applications in diverse areas of science in general and mathematics in particular. The workshop titled "algebra and applications" aims to expose the participants to some advanced topics in algebra and the applications of these topics in algebraic geometry, algebraic combinatorics and cryptography. In particular, we hope to present some computational aspects of commutative algebra, applications to coding theory and cryptography, classification problems in algebraic geometry, representation theory of finite groups  and algebraic structures arising from moves on knot diagrams. 

The workshop is focused towards an audience with a little background in algebra and some interest in its applications, which is what makes it the right opportunity for young researchers and students from a budding community of pure mathematicians in Pakistan.
