MISSION STATEMENT
The Kent State University Algebra Seminar is committed to becoming the highest quality seminar in Mathematics or, indeed, in any discipline, in this or any other conceivable World, and endeavors to proactively and assertively thwart all efforts of rival seminars to prevent the Algebra Seminar from attaining this lofty and rightful position, by striving to synergistically create and enthusiastically disseminate cutting edge research in critical and emerging areas of Group, Ring, and Field Theory, or any combination or permutation thereof.
