Computable algebra: a personal perspective

College of Staten Island - CUNY

I will give a brief overview of some of my recent research in the field of Computable Algebra, emphasizing connections between Computability Theory and Algebra. Some of the topics that I hope to cover include Artinian and Euclidean rings, as well as infinite dimensional vector spaces. There will be no proofs, just statements of theorems along with discussions on their logical and algebraic significance.

Prof. Conidis received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Chicago in 2009, under the supervision of Denis Hirschfeldt, Antonio Montalban, and Robert Soare, and subsequently held postdoctoral positions at the University of Waterloo and at Vanderbilt University. His work applies techniques of computability theory to problems in algebra, analysis, and combinatorics. He is now an Assistant Professor at the College of Staten Island in CUNY.
