Beiträge zur Algebra und Geometrie / Contributions to Algebra and Geometry was founded in 1971 on the occasion of the 65th birthday of the mathematician Ott-Heinrich Keller, a longtime professor at Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, and an important figure in the German Mathematical Society. In 1930, Keller posed a conjecture on cube-tiling which still stimulates researchers, and his subsequent work in algebraic geometry and topology endures today. In this tradition, the journal publishes high-impact research articles in the areas of algebra, geometry, algebraic geometry and related fields.

Popular articles from recent issues illustrate the range of coverage: The Poincaré polynomial of the pointed linear sigma quotient; Ghost symmetry and an analogue of Steinitz’s theorem; Minimal translation surfaces in hyperbolic space; Tangent bundle of a hypersurface of a Euclidean space.

The back issues of the journal are available at the European Digital Mathematics Library (EuDML) at: (Vols. 1-33,  1971-1992) 
and  (Vols. 34-51, 1993-2010)

  • 50 years of Beiträge zur Algebra und Geometrie

    In 2021, the journal “Beiträge zur Algebra und Geometrie / Contributions to Algebra and Geometry“ celebrates its 50th anniversary. On this occasion, the three Managing Editors have invited and carefully selected excellent articles, written by members of the Editorial Board, and presenting the broad mathematical spectrum covered by the journal. These articles have been published in two Special Issues (Vol. 62/1 and 62/2) this year.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
