The number theory group at Clemson covers a wide range of interests touching on many areas of number theory. The diverse interests of the faculty provide for numerous number theory courses so that graduate students leave Clemson with an overview of the entire subject. There is a weekly Algebra and Discrete Mathematics (ADM) Seminar as well as a weekly Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory (AGNT) Seminar. Graduate students are funded to attend the Palmetto Number Theory Series (PANTS). PANTS is a regional conference held twice a year featuring talks by prominent number theorists from across the country as well as contributed talks from local faculty and graduate students. Once students have begun their research they are encouraged to give contributed talks at these meetings. The Southeast Regional Meeting on Numbers (SERMON) is another regional conference held once a year with faculty and graduate students from Clemson playing a prominent role.
During the 2016-2021 academic years Clemson will host an NSF funded Research Training Group (RTG) in Coding Theory, Cryptography, and Number Theory. For more information please visit the RTG website.
Students with an interest in number theory should e-mail or stop by and speak with any of the number theorists at Clemson.
