Research in algebra at CU Boulder is centered around algebraic combinatorics, algebraic geometry and general algebra.

The principal topics of research in algebraic combinatorics involve finite group theory, groups of Lie type and their Hecke algebras and combinatorial representation theory. The focus in algebraic geometry is on moduli of curves, Picard groups, abelian varieties, logarithmic geometry, deformation theory. In general algebra we study general algebraic structures, commutator theory, tame congruence theory, clone theory, the combinatorics of ordered sets and computational problems in algebra.
