List of publications, courses, projects

Research in the department is concentrated on following fields of mathematics:

  • Stochastic analysis, with emphasis on infinite-dimensional problems and interacting particle systems
  • Strictly stationary processes and ergodic theory
  • Analysis of statistical data, with focus on multidimensional nonparametric statistics and survival analysis
  • Statistical signal processing, in particular blind signal separation problems


Last events:

Ing. Petr Tichavský received the scientific title "Research Professor in Physico-Mathematical Sciences" from the President of the Czech Academy of Sciences on May 24, 2017.
We regret to announce that Martin Janžura passed away on August 2, 2016, aged 61. His research was centered around the statistics of Gibbs random fields. For many years, he served the Institute as a deputy director. Since 2011 he has been Editor-in-Chief of the journal Kybernetika. As an associated professor, he lectured at the Charles University and the Czech Technical University on various topics in statistics and information theory. He will be missed by his colleagues and students. In him, our institute has lost an original and notable character.
