Department of Mathematical Sciences


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.
