5 April 2019: We are pleased to announce that two new group members will be joining us next academic year.
3 December 2018: Abhishek Saha's Leverhulme grant for the project 'New investigations in automorphic forms: analytic and arithmetic interfaces' will start in March 2019. The grant will fund a postdoctoral researcher and a PhD student. The value of the award is £293,685.
14 May 2018: Alex Fink's Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship award for the project 'Tropical Differential Geometry' will start in June 2018 when the fellow Zeinab Toghani will join the Algebra and Number Theory Group for two years.The value of the award is €195,455.
11 August 2017: We are pleased to announce that the newly appointed lecturers in number theory, Steve Lester and Abhishek Saha have joined the Algebra and Number Theory Group. 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.
17 March 2017: We are pleased to announce that Behrang Noohi and Ivan Tomašić have joined the Algebra and Number Theory Group. 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.
