- Research — Department of Mathematics and Computer Science

Research Mathematics research in the department generally falls into one of these areas Topology The Topology group has a wide variety of interests with an emphasis on the topology of 3 dimensional manifolds Areas of specialty include hyperbolic 3 manifolds knot theory and foliations Algebra The Algebra group includes people with interests in group theory representation theory ring theory and finite dimensional algebras Analysis Among our Analysis group are people interested in wavelets Banach spaces analytic functions Lie group representations and analysis on symmetric spaces Differential Geometry The Differential Geometry group is interested in hyperbolic and Lorentzian geometry rank one Lie Groups and relativity Computer Science Research The Computer Science group is interested in algorithms bioinformatics computer graphics visual perception media processing embedded systems computational geometry topology computational linguistics and technical systems control Past Conferences Hosted by the SLU Department of Mathematics and Computer Science 2008 The Clavius Group Collaboration in mathematical research 2007 The Zassenhaus Conference Group theory Document Actions Send this Print this April 2016 April Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25
