Suggested courses
For students who are interested in pursuing studies in group theory, representation theory, Lie theory,
or more advanced topics in algebraic groups, we suggest that you take
(beyond the second year Group Theory and Rings and Fields Course):
Bachelor level courses:
- Strongly recommended:
- Rings and Modules (required)
- Galois Theory (required)
- Représentations linéaires de groupes finis
- Algèbres de Lie
- second year Topology
- Good options, depending on complementary interests:
- Number theory (algebraic or analytic)
- Introduction aux variétés différentiables
- Homology and cohomology
General recommendation: do not specialize at the bachelors level. Try to lay a wide foundation; there are connections between many different areas of pure and applied mathematics.
Master level courses:
- Algebraic geometry
- Lie groups
- Topics in Group Theory
- any course in Representation Theory, Analysis on groups, Number theory
