'''Graduate study at UW-Madison in algebra'''<br />
<br />
Algebra is among the most popular specializations for UW Ph.D. students. Regularly offered courses include a four-semester sequence in number theory; a two-semester 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 Gross-Zagier formula, classification of algebraic surfaces, and p-adic Hodge theory. Here is [http://www.math.wisc.edu/gcourses_fall a list of this fall's graduate courses].<br />
<br />
The department holds an [http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward.do?AwardNumber=0838210&version=noscript NSF-RTG grant in number theory and algebraic geometry], which funds several research assistantships for graduate students (U.S. citizens and permanent residents) working in those areas. <br />
<br />
Recent Ph.D. graduates from the group have been very successful on the job market; in the last few years, we have sent alumni to postdoctoral fellowships at Berkeley, Harvard, Imperial (UK), MIT, Princeton, Stanford, and UT-Austin, to tenure-track jobs at McGill, Wake Forest, Bucknell, the University of New Mexico, and the University of South Carolina, and to non-academic positions at places such as Credit Suisse and the Center for Communications Research, La Jolla.</div>Terwilli
