Our group conducts research in selected areas of both applied mathematics and computer science including combinatorics, game theory, complexity theory, mathematical physics, statistics and econometrics, topology, and others. We are mostly very young scientists regularly publishing in peer-reviewed journals. We apply the mathematical background also in our activities related to informatics and computer science, such as advanced algorithm design and programming.
