Applied Algebra and Geometry research network Meeting
This research network brings together UK academics who are interested in applications of algebra and geometry, and related algebraically-minded fields, be it commutative algebra, representation theory, group theory, process algebras, as well as algebraic geometry, category theory, and algebraic topology. The scope extends to computational algebra for applications including data-science, biology, medicine, engineering, physics, etc.
The activities of the Applied Algebra and Geometry research network are funded by the London Mathematical Society, the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, and the Glasgow Mathematical Journal Trust.
Energy conditions in quantum theory and gravity
Classical energy conditions were introduced as a means of codifying generic properties of matter in general relativity. They play key roles in the singularity theorems of Hawking and Penrose and in many other results of mathematical relativity. However, not all models of classical matter obey the pointwise energy conditions, and quantum fields cannot obey any of them.
