The Abram Gannibal Project: Collaborative research in applied algebra and geometry in Africa

The Abram Gannibal project aims to establish collaborations between UK mathematicians and emerging Sub-Saharan African scientists and their research groups to tackle a range of problems arising in technological challenges relevant to the African development context. Our objective is to use theoretical approaches to attack research problems arising in applications. Our focus is on collaborative research in applied algebraic and arithmetic geometry.

During the coronavirus epidemic, our planned face-to-face activities had to be put on hold. Instead, we are organizing a series of zoom workshops, consisting of presentations followed by group work, around the use of computer software in different areas of pure mathematics and applications.
