ALTA is a research unit within the
Department of Mathematics and Computer
Science (FB3) at the University of Bremen. According to university
statutes it has the legal status of an Institute.
Our main focus is pure and applied research in algebra, geometry,
topology, discrete mathematics, and theoretical computer
science. The majority of our work is motivated by applications in exact
sciences or industry. Current applications include distributed
computing, physics, bioinformatics, and data analysis. Further details
can be found on the
projects page.
The workshop Frames and Algebraic & Combinatorial Geometry took place at our university from July 2731. It was organized by EvaMaria Feichtner and Emily King. See a photo of the workshop participants below.
