Discrete Algebra and Geometry (DAG)
Phenomena throughout mathematics and the natural sciences have discrete algebraic aspects, often along with analytical counterparts. While the latter are typically modelled using real numbers, differential equations, and numerical computations, describing the discrete-algebraic aspects involves objects like nite elds, graphs, polynomials, groups, algebras, and symbolic computations.
The Discrete Algebra and Geometry group at the TU/e develops the mathematics needed for such a description. It plays a leading role in algebraic graph theory, nite and incidence geometry, and discrete Lie theory. Moreover team members are active in the elds of computer algebra, interactive mathematics, and applicable algebraic geometry.
