DTC MATH 2 -Facets of noncommutative smoothness and foundations of noncommutative geometry
Noncommutative geometry combines ideas from geometry and noncommutative algebra and equips noncommutative rings with geometric meaning. The aim of the project is the study smoothness of algebraic structures and noncommutative geometric objects encoded by them from various point of view: differential, homological, topological, categorical, etc. By contrasting these points of view not only a deep understanding of noncommutative smoothness will be achieved, but also categorical foundations of noncommutative geometry will be developed.
Candidates must have a minimum of an upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject, or an appropriate Master’s degree (with Merit). Informal enquiries are welcome by emailing the project supervisor.
For candidates whose first language is not English, we require IELTS 6.0 (with 5.5 in each component) or equivalent. Please visit our website for a list of acceptable English language tests. We prefer candidates to have already met the English Language requirements at the point of application, although this is not a requirement.
