Ken Brown's Homepage

My current research interests encompass both noncommutative ring theory and representation theory, and the interactions between these two fields. The topics which I am particularly interested in at present are: quantum groups and quantised function algebras; (infinite dimensional) noetherian Hopf algebras; Poisson orders and symplectic reflection algebras; and homological properties of noncommutative algebras. Further information about the work on some of the above topics currently being done in the Department can be found here.
