Mathematics, Mathematical physics and Theoretical Research (THEORY)

Program coordinator: prof. RNDr. Pavel Exner, DrSc.

The Theory group will interconnect current activities in mathematics, mathematical physics, theoretical physics and applied mathematics. The proposed theory group will strengthen the existing collaboration between excellent theoretical research teams at the Czech Technical University and establish new ones. Numerous synergies between their activities will make it possible to significantly boost the quality of research.

Mathematical physics at FNSPE has been studied in the Doppler Institute for mathematical physics and applied mathematics (http://physics.fjfi.cvut.cz/en/science-and-research/institutes-centers) for a long time .

 

The broad spectrum covered by the theoretical group program is divided into nine areas / sub-programs:

A) Geometry and Spectral Properties of Quantum Systems. (Pavel Exner and Pavel Šťovíček)
B) Quantum Optics and Quantum Information. (Igor Jex)
C) Combinatorial and algebraic structures, theoretical Informatics. (Edita Pelantová and Libor Šnobl)
D) Functional Analysis and Operator Algebras. (Jan Hamhalter and Petr Hájek)
E) Algebra, Ordered Structures, and Generalized Measure Theory. (Pavel Pták and Mirko Navara)
F) Mathematical Modelling of Flow Dynamics. (Michal Beneš and Stanislav Kračmar)
G) Continuum Mechanics, Modelling and Simulation of Multi functional Materials. (Milan Jirásek and Jan Kratochvíl)
H) Dynamical Processes in Nonlinear Systems. (Jozef Bobok and Pavel Krejčí)
I) Optimization Methods, Reliability of Complicated Systems (Daniela Jarušková)
