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

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 […]
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.
