Department of Algebra and Number Theory

The research in the department is conducted within the scope of Number Theory, with particular focus on the analytic number theory, the general theory of L-function, the number distribution and the distribution of prime ideals, the computational number theory and its applications to cryptology, the quantitative theory of factorization, the arithmetic dynamics and the theory of real numbers expansions.

The department staff publish their results in the top international journals (i.a. 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 organize international academic conferences. Editorial duties are also an important part of the department staff’s activity. Editorial offices of two mathematical journals, Acta Arithmetica and Functiones et Approximatio, Commentarii Mathematici, are managed at the department.
