Algebra and combinatorics
Professor Halverson's research is in algebraic combinatorics, specifically, combinatorial representation theory, where he uses objects from discrete math—such as graphs, diagrams, partitions, and tableaux—to give concrete descriptions of abstract phenomenon from algebra. Through support from the National Science Foundation, he involves students in his research projects and accompanies them to national mathematics meetings. Professor Halverson teaches courses in discrete mathematics, algebra (linear and abstract), calculus, and topology.
