The following researchers and students are associated with the research group in topology.
The topology SeminarThis semester, Spring 2014, we have seminars on Thursdays 12:15, room 510.
See the topology seminar page for more details.
NetworkThe national RCN project Topology in Norway is coordinated from Bergen as was the past projects Topology and Topology in Norway.
In 2007 the Abel symposium was on topology.

Studying topology in Bergen
Topology - the mathematics of spaces - is not touched on properly in the first years of study at UiB. If you are curious as to what important branch of mathematics you are missing out on, please do not hesitate to contact one of us. For an informal discussion you may also consult Essays about algebraic topology collected by Don Davis, or "Rom"forskning - det finnes kulere rom enn verdensrommet and Sfærespekteret by Dundas.
The courses General Topology (MAT242) and Manifolds (MAT243) are both supposed to be possible points of entry for budding topologists, as well as others who plan to study one of the many fields using concepts and results from topology. One of these courses must be taken at the very latest in the third year of study. The course Algebraic Topology (MAT244) is an introduction to algebraic topology which is the field of research currently pursued in topology in Bergen. Cohomology theory (MAT344) is designed as a course for master students in pure mathematics. Further study is conducted in "selected topics" (MAT343) and in reading courses in cooperation with your supervisor.
For a vague idea of possible master's projects, you may consult the following list (in Norwegian only) or come and talk with one of us.
