In this presentation, we explore two branches of mathematics, abstract algebra and number theory, and a curious bridge connecting the two fields. The talk will be broken up to answer the following questions:
-What exactly does a mathematician do when they do research?
-What is abstract algebra? What do algebraists study?
-What is number theory? In particular, what are integer partitions?
-How are these areas connected? What does this mean for both disciplines?
abstract algebra, number theory, group theory, algebraic structures, partitions, vertex algebras, symmetries, Srinivasa Ramanujan
Algebra | Logic and Foundations | Mathematics | Number Theory
