Courses

Linear Algebra

The purpose of the course is to introduce the basic notions of linear algebra and its applications.

Algebraic topology

Homology is one of the most important tool to study topological spaces. The aim of this course is to introduce this notion, understand its properties, and learn how to compute it.

Linear algebraic groups

The aim of the course is to give an introduction to linear algebraic groups over algebraically closed fields and to give an insight into a beautiful subject that combines algebraic geometry with group theory.

Topics in geometric group theory

The goal of this course/seminar is to introduce the students to some contemporary aspects of geometric group theory. Emphasis will be put on Artin's Braid groups and Thompson's groups.
