# Algebra and Topology

Research in algebra and topology at the Mathematics Department of IST includes various topics in algebraic topology, knot theory, algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, Hopf algebras, operator algebras, and category theory.

The members of the algebra and topology research group interact and cooperate strongly with members of other research groups in the Department, specially with the geometry group and the mathematical physics group.

Almost all the members of the algebra and topology research group belong to the Center for Mathematical Analysis, Geometry and Dynamical Systems.
