The Centro de Álgebra da Universidade de Lisboa, CAUL, had its origin as a research center in the project LM4 of the Instituto da Alta Cultura and was officially recognized by the Instituto Nacional de Investigação Científica, INIC, in 1980. It became a research unit of the Universidade de Lisboa in 1993, being financed by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, FCT.
CAUL has more than 20 integrated members and several PhD students, collaborators and grant holders. Most of its members hold a teaching position in one of the following Universities:
CAUL maintains close cooperation with foreign researchers, namely from Australia, France, Great-Britain, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain and the United States, which is reflected by the joint publication of research papers, co-supervision of doctoral students and organization of scientific meetings. CAUL cooperates also with CIRCA (Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Computational Algebra – Univ. St. Andrews, Reino Unido) aiming at, on one hand, reinforcing the existing scientific interchange, sharing preprints, foreign visitors and video-conference seminars; on the other hand, collaborate in the development of GAP (Groups, Algorithms and Programming). CAUL has regular cooperation with several national institutions, namely in the supervision of theses.
