The Centre for Combinatorial Methods in Algebra, Number Theory and Applications (CANTA), headed by Prof Brita Nucinkis, brings together researchers from diverse groups within the departments of Mathematics, Information Security and Computer Science.
Mathematical themes include:
- Discrete Mathematics (Gerke and Moffat)
- Group Representation Theory (Wildon)
- Combinatorial and Geometric Group Theory (Barnea, Kar, Nucinkis)
- Number Theory (Dietmann, McKee, Widmer)
- Cryptography (Albrecht, Blackburn, Martin, Ng)
- Quantum Mechanics (Bolte), and
- Theoretical Computer Science (Gutin, Wahlström).
Strategic aims of CANTA
- fostering an environment of research excellence for its members by facilitating collaborations within the Centre and with other centres of excellence in the UK and world-wide,
- supporting grant applications and enhancing training for research students.
- promoting Knowledge Exchange – members will actively engage with the public particularly with young people to encourage careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
- nurturing inter-disciplinary research through exploratory workshops that discuss the influence of its work on the wider research community, e.g. Group Theory in Virology or Stem Cell research.
Mathematics Virtual Seminar
The virtual seminar meets every Wednesday at 2PM unless advertised otherwise. The Schedule includes instructions on how to join.
Number Theory Seminar
Every Wednesday at 4PM
We have temporarily paused this seminar until we can meet in person again.
