Division of Algebra and Number Theory was founded in late 2010 by dividing up the former Division of Algebra and Discrete Mathematics. The Division has 8 members, four of which are holding tenure track positions, two senior teaching assistants, one senior lecturer and one teaching assistant.
Science
Scientific activities of the members of the Division pertain to the areas of algebra, number theory, mathematical analysis, geometry and topology and computing. In particular, the Division members' area of research interests includes:
 Langlands program, automorphic forms
 Representation theory
 Cohomology of arithmetic groups
 Affine Lie algebras and vertex operator algebras
 Diophantine and Thue equations
 Dimension theories, Bockstein base, resolution theorems
 Geometric group theory, coarse geometry
 The theory of computation, formal models of collaboration systems, analysis of the security protocols
Members of the Division participate in the implementation of the Croatian Doctoral Program in Mathematics (joint program of J.J. Strossmayer University of Osijek, University of Rijeka, University of Split, University of Zagreb).
