National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER), under the aegis of the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), has been established with the aim of embedding scientific rigor within larger pedagogic practices in our country. The Institute is affiliated with Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI), Mumbai, a deemed research university that oversees academic programs at Institutions that are part of the DAE structure. NISER campus is situated in 300 acres of land, generously donated by the people of Odisha, in Jatni town, 25 Kms from the centre of the city of Bhubaneswar. The new campus of IIT Bhubaneswar and AIIMS is in the general neighborhood. While we began with the 5 year Integrated M.Sc. programme in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics, Doctoral guidance has gained substantial traction in the recent past and some of our first scholars have graduated.

About the Program

Abstract: The goal of this course is to give an introduction to the methods of transcendence and algebraic independence on commutative algebraic groups. We start with a historical survey, explaining why algebraic groups are relevant. An introduction to algebraic groups will be included. Next, we consider the strategy of the proof, which we divide into several steps. For each step, we explain which are the relevant tools. We do not plan to give too many technical details; on the opposite, we wish to explain the ideas and the reasons for proving auxiliary results like the criteria for algebraic independence and the zero estimates.
