This proceedings volume covers a range of research topics in algebra from the Southern Regional Algebra Conference (SRAC) that took place in March 2017. Presenting theory as well as computational methods, featured survey articles and research papers focus on ongoing research in algebraic geometry, ring theory, group theory, and associative algebras. Topics include algebraic groups, combinatorial commutative algebra, computational methods for representations of groups and algebras, group theory, Hopf-Galois theory, hypergroups, Lie superalgebras, matrix analysis, spherical and algebraic spaces, and tropical algebraic geometry. Since 1988, SRAC has been an important event for the algebra research community in the Gulf Coast Region and surrounding states, building a strong network of algebraists that fosters collaboration in research and education. This volume is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in recent findings in computational and theoretical methods in algebra and representation theory.
