Department of Algebra and Number Theory

The department conducts research in the field of number theory, with particular focus on analytic number theory, the general theory of L-functions, the theory of the distribution of prime numbers and prime ideals, computational number theory and its applications to cryptology, the quantitative theory of factorization, arithmetic dynamics, and the theory of real number expansions.

The department staff publish their results in leading international journals, including Annals of Mathematics, Inventiones Mathematicae, Acta Mathematica, Duke Mathematical Journal, Journal of the EMS, Mathematische Annalen, Journal für die reine und angewandte Mathematik, Transactions of the AMS, etc. They also organize international academic conferences. Another important part of their activity is editorial work; the department manages the editorial offices of two mathematical journals, Acta Arithmetica and Functiones et Approximatio, Commentarii Mathematici.
