THEORY

Mathematics, Mathematical physics and Theoretical Research

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)

news from the program

Prof. Igor Jex, Director of CAAS project and Dean of the Faculty of Nuclear and Physical Engineering of CTU in Prague (FJFI), has been elected a member of The Academy of Europe (Academia Europaea). The Academy brings together scientific leaders from various fields of science, humanities and literature. It was founded in 1988 with the […]
The interaction between things and artists has the power to enrich all involved. This is why the PARTPHYS (Particle Physics) research programme of the Centre for Advanced Applied Science (CAAS) project has created a sub-programme Language for Science-Art-Public Communication. The process of preparation of the artefact and other activities within the sub-programme Language for Science-Art-Public Communication is also summarised in an electronic publication, which can be downloaded (pdf in Czech, 13 MB).
To demonstrate the so-called quantum supremacy of a quantum computer based on photons, Chinese scientists used a solution to a computational problem formulated at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague (FNSPE). Specifically, the Gaussian Boson Sampling protocol, developed by Craig Hamilton and Igor Jex of the FNSPE and their partners, the group of Christine Silberhorn of the University of Paderborn (FRG). The research team of the Chinese University of Science and Technology published a report on the results on December 3, 2020 in the journal Science.
The largest ICHEP2020 particle physics conference, which took place between July 28 and 6 August 2020, attracted over 3,000 particle physicists. Originally, the organizers expected that about a thousand of them would arrive in Prague, but due to the pandemic, the plans had to change and the conference moved to the online environment. In total, […]
