Algebra

Four distinct topics are under investigation in this area.

Non-commutative algebras, in particular, various kinds of matrix rings and their substructures and algebraic properties are Prof Leon van Wyk’s main research area with near-ring theory as his secondary research area.

Commutative algebras and group theory are the research interests of Dr Cornelia Naude and Dr Andrew Fransman, respectively.

Dr Karin-Therese Howell investigates algebras of functions associated with a given algebraic structures, as well as near vector spaces. Her work is in collaboration with Professor Carl Maxson (Texas A & M University).
