Pure Mathematics Group
Pure mathematics seeks to understand why things are they way they are. Researchers search for patterns and relations between patterns. The abstraction of pure mathematics gives universal solutions to problems that have wide applicability.
Current faculty research
The pure mathematics emphasis at UNB is upon algebra, the study of the fundamental structures of mathematics, and non-commutative geometry, which studies methods to apply non-commutative algebra in geometric situations.
This group is comprise of faculty members: Branimir Cacic, Eddy Campbell, Mohammad El Smaily, Colin Ingalls, Dan Kucerovsky, Barry Monson, Bahram Rangipour, Patrick Reynolds, Alyssa Sankey, and Vladimir Tasic. Their specializations include algebra and algebraic geometry, combinatorics, geometry, operator algebra and non-commutative geometry.
The group is vibrant with several graduate students and typically 2-3 postdoctoral researchers. The Department hosts the Centre for Non-Commutative Geometry and Topology, which has several distinguished members and hosts annual conferences and workshops.
