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
The workshop Frames and Algebraic & Combinatorial Geometry took place at our university from July 27-31. It was organized by Eva-Maria Feichtner and Emily King. See a photo of the workshop participants below.

Distributed Computing Through Combinatorial Topology
On November 7, Dmitry Feichtner-Kozlov will give a talk on Theoretical Distributed Computing at the Institute of Advanced Studies in Princeton.
Tim Haga and Jan-Philipp Litza were appointed Mathemacher des Monats for the month of November 2015 by the German Mathematical Society.
Jan-Philipp Litza was awarded a research stay at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach for his master thesis. Congratulations!
