rings modules categories and applications

Rings, Modules, Categories and Applications

Scope of the special session

This special session will cover a variety of topics which are very active areas of research both in commutative and noncommutative algebra: classical ring theory, Leavitt path algebras, rings satisfying a polynomial identity, algebras and coalgebras, as well as triangulated categories, homological algebra and its interplay with algebra, geometry and representation theory.
