The purpose of the Conference is to present the current state of the art in group theory and ring theory and their applications. In particular, we are going to emphasize combinatorial and geometric group theory, combinatorial and computational ring theory, the theory of PI-algebras, commutative and noncommutative invariant theory, automorphisms of polynomial and other free algebras, graded associative, Lie, and Jordan algebras and superalgebras. The applications include, but are not limited to, scientific computing, coding theory, cryptography, and statistics.
The meeting is approved for a satellite event of the 7th European Congress of Mathematics (Berlin, July 18-22, 2016).
The Conference will include full length presentations and contributed talks. The presentations will be 45 minutes long and the contributed talks will be 30 minutes long, including questions.
The Conference is dedicated to the 70th birthday of Yuri Bahturin, University Research Professor and Director of Atlantic Algebra Centre at Memorial University of Newfoundland (St. John, Canada), and Professor at Moscow State University (Russian Federation).
The original research field of Yuri Bahturin was the theory of varieties of Lie algebras. He was among the authors of the first research papers and a monograph in this field. For more than 40 years, Yuri Bahturin, his students, and the students of his students continue to obtain important results on polynomial identities of Lie algebras, Lie superalgebras and their enveloping algebras. Later in his career, Yuri Bahturin contributed to the foundation of several research areas including
  • Locally finite Lie algebras,
  • Graded algebras and superalgebras,
  • Algebras with action of Hopf algebras
  • Combinatorial theory of groups and algebras.
