Dr. Xingting Wang
Dr. Xingting Wang is currently a research assistant professor in the Depart- ment of Mathematics at Temple University in Philadelphia, USA. He received a B.S. degree in Pure and Applied Mathematics from Fudan University in China in 2007, and Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from University of Washington in Seat- tle in 2014. His areas of research lie in noncommutative algebra, where ideas and techniques from geometry and commutative algebra are being further inves- tigated and developed to understand certain noncommutative algebraic struc- tures arising from different fields of mathematics and theoretical physics. He has been working on the core area of quantum symmetry driven by the principle that the very nature of the symmetry group decodes the fundamental geometry of the space, such as in theoretical physics, the Lorentz transformations reveal Einstein’s famous special theory of relativity in the Minkowski spacetime. Com- paring to the classical symmetry, quantum symmetry has extended the principle to noncommutative projective algebraic geometry, where the hidden symmetry of these noncommutative spaces can be revealed by quantum symmetry groups.
