Applied Algebra

We make breakthrough theoretical algebra into engineering solutions


We apply sophisticated algebraic and computational tools to represent data in noise-resilient ways

Computer Algebra

We develop fast, practical algorithms for computers to operate with bleeding-edge theoretical constructions.

Write Projects

We have many projects suitable for anything from Fagproject to PhD level. The project will be tailored for you on a scale between theoretical math and practical implementations.

Great Research

We publish in the best journals and conferences of our fields. See the group's list of publications.

Visit from PhD student David Lucas

The Algebra group was visited 30th October till 10th November by PhD student David Lucas from University of Grenoble-Alpes in France. David Lucas is looking at non-cryptographic solutions for security issues with cloud computing, and during the visit worked with Johan Rosenkilde on certificates for linear algebraic computations: a cloud service computes e.g. the determinant […]

A new family of maximal curves

In a new preprint Peter Beelen and guest Ph.D. Maria Montanucci describe a new family of maximal curves. Maximal curves are algebraic curves defined over a finite field, having as many rational points as allowed by the famous Hasse-Weil bound. Such curves are of great interest by themselves, but are also the most obvious curves […]
