Welcome to Mathematics

The Mathematics Department is committed to the development, teaching, and learning of mathematics at all levels. Our faculty are actively engaged in research in many areas of pure and applied mathematics. We offer undergraduate and graduate degrees that will prepare students for jobs in industry, education, or mathematical research. We also teach a wide range of introductory mathematics courses for students in science, engineering, business, and the liberal arts, and support those students with our Math Tutorial Lab.

    Invariants of rings via equivariant homotopy

    Algebraic K-theory is an invariant of rings which illustrates a fascinating interplay between algebra and topology. Defined using topological tools, this invariant has important applications to algebraic geometry, number theory, and geometric topology. One fruitful approach to computing algebraic K-theory uses equivariant homotopy theory, a branch of algebraic topology which studies topological objects with a group action. In this talk I will give an introduction to algebraic K-theory and its applications, and talk about modern methods to compute algebraic K-theory.
