Algebra, geometry and integrable systems

Overview

Algebra, geometry and integrable systems research at the University of Leeds

Research in the AGIS group spans a wide range of activities across pure mathematics, applied mathematics and mathematical physics, with particular emphasis on the links between these disciplines.

The AGIS group maintains a strong interest in pure research problems in its constituent fields (for example: homological algebra, hyperkaehler geometry, inverse scattering theory), but actively seeks to develop in the interfaces between fields (for example: algebraic geometry of Calogero-Moser spaces, applications of differential geometry to soliton dynamics, applications of representation theory to statistical mechanics).

This makes the group a particularly vibrant and exciting place to study for a research degree. Our research strengths include:

  • Algebra and representation theory
  • Low dimensional geometric topology
  • Connections of logic to algebra and geometry
  • Geometric variational problems
  • Integrable systems theory
  • Discrete systems and difference equations
  • Discrete and spectral geometry
