International research centre ALGA:
Advances in Lie Group Analysis
Lie group analysis is a growing field of mathematics with numerous applications. Ideas of symmetry and invariance that lie at the core of Lie's theory, permeate all mathematical models in natural and engineering sciences. ALGA is an international research centre aimed at producing new knowledge and enhancing the understanding of classical and modern group analysis.
The main objectives of ALGA are:
- To advance studies in modern group analysis, differential equations and mathematical modelling.
- To develop and teach courses in Lie group analysis and its applications targeted towards producing expertise and skilled researchers.
- To enhance the understanding of the classical heritage in group analysis.
- To provide rapid publication of significant results in group analysis.
- To coordinate efforts of world experts in implementing a database containing all the latest information on theoretical group analysis and applications to mathematical models.
- 1983 - A research laboratory for Lie group analysis was founded by N.H. Ibragimov at Ufa State Aviation and Technical University, Russia
- 1987 - Continued at the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Institute of Mathematical Modelling of the USSR Academy of Sciences in Moscow
- 1994 - International status is achieved as Centre for Symmetry Analysis and Differential Equations at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa
- 1998 - Continued as International Institute for Symmetry Analysis and Mathematical Modelling (ISAMM) at the University of North-West, South Africa
- 2000 - Continued as an international research centre ALGA at the Department of Mathematics and Science, Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), Sweden
- 2004-2009 - ALGA was a university centre at BTH.
- 2012 - ALGA is reestablished as an international research centre ALGA at the Department of Mathematics and Science, Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), Sweden for cooperation with the laboratory "Group Analysis of Mathematical Models in natural and engineering sciences"
