PhD in Computational and Applied Mathematics

The study program combines studies with active work in the field of mathematics and with solving of problems. The problems students solve come from real life. The methods used for solving the problems benefit from new possibilities of computing and reflect current progress in the field of applied mathematics. Graduates find their employment in research departments of software companies and industry companies, in science institutions, or possibly at universities.

Doctoral study program is a part of Doctoral school that integrates Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University, Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of VSB – Technical University of Ostrava, and IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center.

The aim of the graduate program is to provide education of highly qualified experts who are aware of the main results in their field of study, understand their role in the solution of real world problems, and are able to use their knowledge and experience to get new results. The students are assumed to exploit specific opportunities provided by the department, in particular contact with engineering research, cooperation with National Supercomputer Centre, local industry, and locally based software companies. They are also assumed to participate in international research projects using contacts with cooperating universities. Department of Applied Mathematics currently participates in the Graduate School Project with top Czech universities and research institutions and participates in organizations of winter schools.

The graduate program Computational and Applied Mathematics combines study with active research in the field of mathematics, concentrating on the topics motivated by the engineering practice, progress in computational technology, and new results in applied and numerical mathematics. The theses are assumed to contain new theoretical results or new algorithms, the effectivity of which will be tested by numerical experiments and/or by the solution of interesting real world problems.
