## Research Groups

The department has a number of active research seminars.

### Mathematics Research

Mathematics research in the department generally falls into one of these areas:

- Topology
- The Topology group has a wide variety of interests, with an emphasis on the topology of 3-dimensional manifolds. Areas of specialty include hyperbolic 3-manifolds, knot theory, and foliations.
- Algebra
- The Algebra group includes people with interests in group theory, representation theory, ring theory, and finite dimensional algebras.
- Analysis
- Among our Analysis group are people interested in wavelets, Banach spaces, analytic functions, Lie group representations, and analysis on symmetric spaces.
- Differential Geometry
- The Differential Geometry group is interested in: hyperbolic and Lorentzian geometry, rank one Lie Groups, and relativity.

### Computer Science Research

The Computer Science group is interested in algorithms, bioinformatics, computer graphics, visual perception, media processing, embedded systems, computational geometry/topology, computational linguistics and technical systems control.
