Algebraic Representation Theory Laboratory

Understanding things from the perspective of symmetry

Symmetry provides a powerful clue when examining shapes and spaces. For example, if we find that a given shape in a plane is invariant by rotation, then we can conclude that it is circular. It means that symmetry determines the shape of things to some extent. Historically, this perspective has produced surprising identities and solutions of various equations. The goal of our laboratory is to study structures determined by symmetry and to use them to solve specific problems.
