About Alexandru Suciu
Prof. Suciu’s research interests are in Topology, and how it relates to Algebra, Geometry, and Combinatorics. He currently investigates cohomology jumping loci, and their applications to algebraic varieties, low-dimensional topology, and toric topology, such as the study of hyperplane arrangements, Milnor fibrations, moment angle complexes, configuration spaces, and various classes of knots, links, and manifolds, as well as the homology and lower central series of discrete groups.
Algebraic geometry generally uses tools from algebra to study objects called algebraic varieties that are solution sets to algebraic equations
The study of those properties that are preserved through continuous deformations of objects. It can be used to abstract the inherent connectivity of objects while ignoring their detailed form.
