The main research topics of the department WISK are: 1. padic analysis The functions studied in the mathematical analysis have real and complex values. One can replace the real or complex numbers by other numbers: the padic numbers (p is a prime). These numbers have properties that are rather different from the properties of real numbers. For instance when calculating with padic numbers rounding errors do not occur. The analysis built on the basis of the padic numbers is called padic analysis. This analysis has applications in physics and number theory. 2. Ring theory Algebraic structures play a central role in mathematics. The best known example of an algebraic structure is a group i.e. a set on which an operator is defined. An important example is the group of symmetries of a physical or chemical system. Other algebraic structures have two operations e.g. rings and fields. We study noncommutative ring theory and related subjects such as Hopf algebras and Brauer groups.
