−   
−  Algebra is among the most popular specializations for UW Ph.D. students. Regularly offered courses include a foursemester sequence in number theory; a twosemester sequence in algebraic geometry; homological algebra; representation theory; advanced topics in group theory. We also regularly offer more advanced topics courses, which in recent years have included: the GrossZagier formula, algebraic surfaces, padic Hodge theory. Here is [http://www.math.wisc.edu/gcourses_fall a list of this fall's graduate courses].
