Research activities and objectives
The main scientific objectives of the Institute in Algebraic Geometry concern the new problems in 4manifolds, Gauge theory and classification problems in complex geometry. We use methods from complex algebraic geometry, complex analysis (of one and several variables), algebraic topology and finite groups. In particular, we study the structure of different moduli spaces, constructing special manifolds and algebraic surfaces, computing the related groups (mainly fundamental groups), the topological invariants and study which finite groups can appear in geometry. In Summability Theory the focus is on multiple series. The objectives in Complex Analysis are in the direction of Geometric Function Theory and Teichmueller spaces. In finite group theory the focus of the research is Table Algebra Theory.
