There are currently two faculty that specialize in number theory at Clemson, with several affiliated faculty. Clemson offers several basic number theory courses so that graduate students leave Clemson with an overview of the entire subject.
There is a weekly <a href=”https://www.ces.clemson.edu/aca/adm-seminar/” target=”_blank”>ADM seminar</a>
run by the Algebra, Discrete Mathematics, and Number theory
group as well as a weekly <a href=”http://burr2.people.clemson.edu/AGNT/index.html” target=”_blank”>algebraic geometry and number theory seminar</a>.
Graduate students are funded to attend the Palmetto Number Theory Series (PANTS), a
conference held three times a year featuring talks by prominent number
theorists from across the country. Once students have begun their research they are encouraged
to give contributed talks at these meetings.
The Southeast Regional Meeting on Numbers (SERMON) is also held once a year with faculty and graduate
students from Clemson playing a prominent role.
Students with an interest in number theory should e-mail or stop by and speak with Kevin James or Hui Xue.
