Research Groups

Research Group of Cornelius Greither (C. Greither, S. Petersen, C. Wittmann)

Our principal interests are in the fields Algebraic Number Theory, Arithmetic Geometry, and Algorithmics. C.G. is working on Galois module structure and Iwasawa theory, in the general framework of the equivariant Tamagawa number conjectures of Burns of Flach. We do try to also obtain explicit results which can be stated in classical language.

C. Wittmann and S. Petersen are interested in varieties over finite fields. C.W. is working, among other things, on zeta functions and algorithmic issues. S.P. deals with Jacobians of superelliptic curves and their twists in his PhD thesis.

During the last years we completed collaborative projects with David Burns (King's College, London), Radan Kucera (Brno, Czech Republic), B. Sodaigui (Valenciennes, France), Nigel Byott (Exeter, UK), X. Roblot (Lyon) and B. Tangedal (Charleston). There are established contacts with colleagues at universities in Regensburg, St. Petersburg, Rome, Tokyo, and other places.
