## The chair of Algebra and geometry

In different years the department “Algebra and Geometry” has been operate under different names: “Geometry”, “Geometry and Algebra”, “Algebra and Topology”.

The chair “Geometry” was founded in Physico-mathematical faculty of Azerbaijan State University in 1935. In 1959 the chair obtained the name “Geometry and Algebra”. During the long time (1938-1972) the chief was the famous scientist and pedagog, corresponding member of ANAS, professor M.A.Javadov. In 1972-2004 professor N.T. Abbasov was the chief of the chair “Geometry”.

In 1969 the chair “Geometry and Algebra” was divided into two parts: the chair “Geometry” and the chair “Algebra and Topology”.

Since 1969 to 1979 assoc.prof. M.R.Bunyatov was the chief of the chair “Algebra and Topology”, in 1980-1994 – assoc.prof. R.M.Sultanov and professor M.S.Akbarov were the chief of this chair. In 1994-2002 assoc.prof. V.A.Gasimov was the chief of the chair “Algebra and Topology”.

In 2002, “Geometry” and “Algebra and Topology” chairs were connected and has been operate under name “Geometry”. In 2004-2006 d.p.-m.s., professor K.I.Khudaverdiyev was the chief of this chier.

In 2007 the chair “Geometry” was renamed as the chair “Algebra and Geometry”. In 2006-2017 assoc. prof. V.A.Gasimov was the chief of this chair.

Since 2017 d.p.-m.s., professor A.A.Salimov is the chief of the chair “Algebra and Geometry”.

At present, the chair is functioning in the following content: d.p.-m.s., prof. A.A.Salimov (Head), c.p.-m.s., assoc. prof. A.F.Kocharli, c.p.-m.s., assoc. prof. N.Y.Aliyev, c.p.-m.s., assoc. prof. S.A.Bayramov, c.p.-m.s., assoc. prof. V.A.Gasimov (part time), c.p.-m.s., assoc. prof. H.D.Fattayev, c.p.-m.s., assoc. prof. H.M.Gasimov, c.p.-m.s., assoc. prof. O.M.Mammadov (part time), c.p.-m.s., assoc. prof. L.K.Hasanova, c.p.-m.s., assoc. prof. A.A.Huseynova, c.p.-m.s., lecturer N.A.Sardarli (part time), senior lecturer L.M.Nasibova, lecturer S.F.Kazimova, lecturer G.M.Mammadova (part time), lecture S.T.Abdullayev (part time), senior laboratory assistant V.F.Guliyeva.

Primary areas of researchers of cheir are following:

Differential geometrical structures on manifold and geometries over algebras, Theory of lifts in tensor bundles, Boolean algebras and homologies, K-theory, C*- algebras, Hilbert modules, Lattice theory.
