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

An overview of trends in quantum theory will be presented by scientists at the week-long event Workshop on Modern Trends in Quantum Theory, which starts on Monday May 23, 2022 at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague (FNSPE). Lectures have been promised by leading figures in the field from European and even more distant universities, such as Prof. Stephen M. Barnett from the University of Glasgow, Prof. Rafael Benguria from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and others.
Prof. Pavel Exner has been elected a member of the Mathematical Section of the European Academy of Sciences (EurASc). This non-governmental, non-profit and independent organisation brings together almost a thousand scientists working in Europe, including ten from the Czech Republic. Professor Pavel Exner, an internationally renowned theoretician and specialist in mathematical physics, is the Director of the Doppler Institute for Mathematical Physics and Applied Mathematics (a joint facility of the FNSPE, the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and the University of Hradec Králové).
A dance-like visual tribute to quantum physics called Color Force was presented to attendees of the Centre of Advanced Applied Sciences (CAAS) gala assembly at the Ark Theatre. A recording of the performance is now available online. As well as a short clip of the entire afternoon and evening. The programme was introduced by Prof. Igor Jex, Director of CAAS, and Assoc. Jaroslav Bielčík, who is the head of the Particle Physics Research Program (PARTPHYS) within CAAS. One of his outputs is the dance performance of Color Force. It was created within the framework of the Language in Communication between Science, Art and the Public sub-programme led by Roman Berka, Director of the Institute of Intermedia at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague.
A member of the Scientific Council of the Centre of Advanced Applied Sciences (CAAS), Prof. Wolfgang Peter Schleich from the University of Ulm, Germany, was awarded an honorary doctorate (Dr. h. c.) of the Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU) at a ceremony of the Scientific Council on 5 October 2021 in Bethlehem Chapel. He was nominated by the Faculty of Nuclear and Physical Engineering of the CTU in Prague (FJFI) and awarded the doctorate was awarded by Prof. Igor Jex, Dean of FJFI and Director of CAAS. Together with Prof. Schleich, Prof. Stephen Mark Barnett also received his doctorate.
For his contribution to the development of mathematical methods used in quantum physics, Prof. Pavel Exner, Coordinator of the Theory Program at the Center for Advanced Applied Sciences (CAAS), has been elected and appointed as a Foreign Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine in July 2021. Prof. Pavel Exner, an internationally renowned […]
