## Research Training Group 2008

The Research Training Group *Combinatorical Structures in Algebra and Topology* was a post graduate programme within the University, which was mutually supported by the Algebra and Topology research groups. Its main focus as regards contents lay in discrete combinatorial structures as graphs, grids, simplicial complexes, monoidal structures and categories, as they appear both in algebra and topology.

This programme provided five PhD fellowship positions. The position holders organized the seminar lectures which took place every Tuesday and where the servitors, other members of the participating research groups and guests gave talks about their research results. A speciality was the* What is?* series, where important mathematical concepts were introduced to a broad audience as an overview.
