[NOVA Math] Mini-course of Algebra and Logic


The Center of Mathematics and Applications (NOVA Math), promote the Mini-course of Algebra and Logic with the title: “Lectures on (Noncommutative) Generalized Numerical Semigroups”. Mahir Bilen Can (Tulane University, Louisiana, USA) is the speaker.


Abstract: Numerical semigroups, due to their inherent simplicity, find applications across various branches of mathematics. Despite their straightforward definition, they possess a depth of complexity comparable to that of integer partitions. One of the many reasons they are still actively studied is their natural appearance in the study of algebraic curves. In this lecture series on numerical semigroups, we aim to accomplish two goals:
  1.           Review some geometric constructions of (generalized) numerical semigroups with an eye towards applications (Lecture 1).
  2.           Introduce a theory of non-commutative numerical semigroups related to algebraic groups (Lecture 2).
