Forschung

Im Fokus

unserer Forschung liegt die Anwendung geometrischer und kombinatorischer Methoden auf algebraische Fragen.
Wir beschäftigen uns unter anderem mit folgenden Themen:

  • Geometrische Gruppentheorie
  • nicht-positiv gekrümmte Räume und Gruppen
  • Algebraische Kombinatorik
  • Theorie der Gebäude und deren Verallgemeinerungen
  • Geometrische Methoden in der Darstellungstheorie

Weitere Informationen finden Sie auf den Seiten der einzelnen MitarbeiterInnen.

Auf dieser Seite sammeln wir Informationen zu unseren Gästen sowie zu Workshops und Konferenzen, die wir co-organisiert haben.

Hier finden Sie alle Veröffentlichungen von Petra Schwer.

Drittmittel

Unsere Forschung wird unterstützt durch folgende Drittmittelprojekte:

 

Workshops and Conferenes

SWAN Workshop

Within SWAN we aim to more closely connect the algebra research groups in the southern part of Germany. This is a joint activity with Anne Henke and Steffen König from Stuttgart.

Flags, Galleries and Reflection Groups

Workshop at the University of Sydney, 5-9  August 2019

Iva Halachevy, Liz Milicevic, Yusra Naqui, Anne Thomas and Petra Schwer will be hosting a Workshop at the University of Sydney in Australia, August 5-9 2019. This workshop is part of our Australian Research Council grant "Affine flags, folded galleries and Euclidean reflection groups".

KMR Blockseminar

A joint Blockseminar together with WWU Münster took place at KIT,  9-11 August 2017. We discussed various topics around the theme Groups, Buildings and Compactifications.

The announcement  as well as the program was put together by Julia Heller, Annette Karrer, Robin Loose and Nils Leder.

Workshop on Compactifications of Buildings and Symmetric Spaces

In May 2017 Anna Schilling, Anna Wienhard and Petra Schwer hosted a small workshop on compactifications.
Here's the link to the website of the  Workshop on compactifications in Heidelberg

RTG 2229 Conference 'Asymptotic geometry of groups and spaces'

In February our first annual conference of the RTG took place in Heidelberg. More details can be found on the website of this event.

Group Theory, Geometry and the influence of Jaques Tits

We were hosting a conference in honor of Richard Weiss at KIT. See here for the conference website.
