Summer School in Algebra and Topology

Within the project « Attractivité internationale et collaborations de recherche dans le cadre du Coimbra Group »  a summer school in algebra and in topology is organised at the Université catholique de Louvain.

The speakers will be professors Maria Manuel Clementino (University of Coimbra), Alberto Facchini (University of Padova) and Tim Van der Linden (Université catholique de Louvain). These mathematicians are internationally well known for their scientific contributions in topology, algebra and category theory, respectively.
The mini-courses will be addressed to Master and PhD students, and will also be of interest for more experienced researchers in these fields. There is a limited funding to partially cover the local expenses for students (deadline: April 30).

The programme will consist in three mini-courses:
Maria Manuel Clementino – Topological algebras
Alberto Facchini –  Commutative monoids, noncommutative rings and modules
Tim Van der Linden –  Non-associative algebras

This event is part of a joint project of the Université catholique de Louvain with the universities of Coimbra, Padova and Poitiers, promoting the research collaborations within the “Coimbra Group”. The project is funded by the UCL for the period January 2018-December 2020.
