Algebra Research Group

Welcome to the pages of the Algebra group in the Mathematical Institute at Oxford. Here you will find information on our members, the seminars and other events we organise, news about us and the research networks we participate in. There are also lists of lecture courses related to our interests.

The research interests of the group span group theory, representation theory and algebraic aspects of geometry, among many other topics. For more detailed information on the people in our group and their individual research interests, please see our list of members.

If you are interested in undertaking graduate studies with us, please see the department's information for prospective graduate students. Post-doctoral positions and funding opportunities and faculty positions are listed on the Institute's vacancies page.

Details of the next scheduled seminar in each of the series we organise are listed below. For future events, please follow the link to each seminar's listings.

Algebra seminar

24 October 2017
Karin Baur

Dimer models with boundary were introduced in joint work with King and Marsh as a natural
generalisation of dimers. We use these to derive certain infinite dimensional algebras and
consider idempotent subalgebras w.r.t. the boundary.
The dimer models can be embedded in a surface with boundary. In the disk case, the
maximal CM modules over the boundary algebra are a Frobenius category which
categorifies the cluster structure of the Grassmannian.


Representation Theory seminar
