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

9 March 2021
Andreas Bode

Coadmissible modules over Frechet-Stein algebras arise naturally in p-adic representation theory, e.g. in the study of locally analytic representations of p-adic Lie groups or the function spaces of rigid analytic Stein spaces. We show that in many cases, the category of coadmissible modules admits an exact and fully faithful embedding into the category of complete bornological modules, also preserving tensor products. This allows us to introduce derived methods to the study of coadmissible modules without forsaking the analytic flavour of the theory. As an application, we introduce six functors for Ardakov-Wadsley's D-cap-modules and discuss some instances where coadmissibility (in a derived sense) is preserved.
