# About us

The Ottawa-Carleton Institute of Mathematics has active research groups in algebra, Lie theory and representation theory. The research interests of the faculty that comprise these groups include Lie algebras, Jordan algebras, algebraic geometry, group theory, representation theory, number theory, and quantum groups. There are regular seminars in algebra and Lie theory as well as frequent workshops and conferences.
