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 ( 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

Japanese Ambassador Hideo Suzuki invited Prof. Akiro Furusawa of the University of Tokyo to dinner in Prague, along with scientists and experts in quantum communication and representatives of the Czech government. One of the guests at the Japanese residence was Prof. Igor Jex from the Department of Physics of the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague (FNSPE). Prof. Akiro Furusawa is a leading Japanese expert in research in the field of quantum optics and quantum computing and ten years ago he collaborated on research with Palacký University in Olomouc. At the University of Tokyo, he heads Furusawa & Endo Labs.
On Monday September 5, 2022, about 50 leading experts in theoretical computer science will meet at Jaderka for the international conference Journées Montoises d'Informatique Théorique. For the first time in the history of this international event, this year it will be hosted by the Department of Mathematics (KM) of the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the CTU in Prague (FNSPE) at its premises in Trojan 13, until Friday September 9, 2022. "The fact that we have been given the opportunity to host the conference confirms the good reputation of our research group in this area," explains Prof. Zuzana Masáková, Head of KM, who together with other colleagues is sponsoring the conference.
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).
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 […]
