Faculty of Applied Mathematics - Scientific research


The Departments of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics conduct research in the following fields of study:


The Department of Algebra

Group theory, linear algebra and their interactions with geometry, mathematical logic and topology.


The Department of Mathematical Analysis and Topology

Wide range of problems connected to the mathematical analysis and topology, more precisely, dynamic systems on torus, generalization of Lapunow's functions, mathematical problems in control theory, as well as geometry of various subclasses of geodesic spaces and the metric fixed point theory, functional equations and inequalities, stability of functional equations, ultrafilters, infinite dimensional topology, continuum theory, topological groups and metrizable groups, vector series, special functions.


The Department of Computational and Industrial Mathematics

Artificial intelligence and its application, analytical and approximate methods of solving technical problems (in particular, the direct and inverse heat conduction problems and problems connected to the solidification of metals and their alloys) based, among others, on the optimization algorithms inspired by nature. Algorithms of solving the direct and inverse heat conduction problems of fractional order. Application of wavelets in solving technical heat conduction problems. System dynamics. Safety analysis of water supply system.
