The Algebra and Number Theory Group at QMUL has a long and distinguished history, going back to such names as Kurt Hirsch, Karl Gruenberg and Ian G. Macdonald. Having made its reputation primarily in group theory, it now covers a range of areas in group theory, representation theory, number theory, algebraic combinatorics, algebraic geometry, logic, homological/categorical algebra, and computational methods.

We normally hold our Algebra and Number Theory Seminar during term on Mondays at 4.30pm. We aim for this seminar to be informal and accessible.
In conjunction with Imperial College and City University we run the weekly London Algebra Colloquium(link is external), which has been running continuously since 1950.
Steve is interested in analytic number theory, especially L-functions, multiplicative functions, classical automorphic forms, and mathematical physics, especially quantum chaos.
Abhishek is interested in classical and higher rank modular forms, automorphic representations and the L-functions attached to them.
Behrang is interested in higher categorical/derived structures in algebra and geometry. More specifically: algebraic/differentiable/topological stacks, moduli problems, higher dimensional groups and higher Lie theory, and string topology.
Ivan studies model theory and its applications in algebraic geometry and number theory. More specifically, his interests include difference algebra and geometry (relating to the arithmetic aspects of the Frobenius automorphism), measurable structures, (nonstandard) cohomology theories, and motivic integration.
