RESEARCH GROUP "Discrete Mathematics"

Elliptic curve

The research group mainly focues on topics in algebra and number theory, in particular in the following areas: Diophantine equations and Diophantine geometry (C. Fuchs, V. Ziegler, C. Karolus, C. Hutle), Metric number theory and applications (P. Hellekalek, M. Hittmeir), Monte Carlo- and Quasi-Monte Carlo-methods (W. Schmid). More detailed information can be found on the personal web pages of the members of the group and in the sections on publications and research projects.

The group is well-connected with colleagues from Klagenfurt, Graz, Linz, Leoben and Vienna. International contacts include cooperation partners from Italy (Pisa, Udine), Switzerland (ETH and University of Zurich), Croatia (University of Zagreb, Pula, Split) and Hungary (Debrecen) among others.

The group covers a significant number of courses in the study programs of the department. Still, we try to offer interesting special courses related to our areas of research so that students can get deeper knowledge in algebra and number theory and are able to write competitive bachelor, diploma, master, and PhD thesis. More information can be found in the relevant section on this web page.
