Algebra and Geometry
Head of the Chair: Valentina Miovska, PhD
LIST OF THE CHAIR MEMBERS:
The chair for algebra and geometry exists for a long period of time. Within the Faculty of Mathematics (1977-1984) there was an Institute of algebra and geometry (Institute I), formed at the beginning of 1980, along with two other Institutes. In 1985, with the transfer of some the teaching staff from the Faculty of Mathematics at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, the Institute of Mathematics was formed and the following chairs within the Institute: chair for analysis and chair for geometry and topology. By the Statute of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics from November 8, 2001, the Institute of Mathematics formed 5 chairs, including the chair for algebra and geometry.
The main activity of the chair for algebra and geometry is: teaching the courses in the areas algebra, geometry and methodology of teaching mathematics. Teaching in the field of algebra and geometry covers much of the total number of first cycle studies at the Institute of Mathematics. These include the following subjects: set theory and logic, algebraic structures, algebra and algebra 2, linear algebra, vector spaces, number theory, cryptography, geometry, differential geometry, selected parts of geometry and others, as well as items from the teaching of the second cycle. The classes of algebra and geometry are usually the basis for the study of many other mathematical disciplines. Teaching mathematics in primary and secondary schools consists mainly of algebra and geometry. The chair of algebra and geometry has the task of proposing members of the committees for: evaluation and defense of master's and doctoral dissertations in relevant areas, and, election and re-election of teachers and associates. Also, one of its tasks is offering programs for courses in the fields of algebra and geometry, to organize seminars and lectures, and, to participate with their own proposals in the work of the Institute.
Scientific Papers of Algebra in R. Macedonia, 1950-2007
The work on the Development of Algebra in Republic of Macedonia was established within the projects Algebraic structures and Vector valued structures supported by Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts (MASA). The manager of both projects was Acad. Gjorgji Čupona (1929-2009). A Bibliography of all papers in algebra published in scientific journals in the period 1950 - 2007 by authors that have worked at the universities in Republic of Macedonia, before all, at "Ss. Cyril and Methodius" University in Skopje, was prepared and all papers were collected and edited in three volumes entitled Scientific papers of algebra in Republic of Macedonia, 1950-2007.
