Department of Mathematics, Physics and Geosciences
The Department of Mathematics, Physics and Geosciences covers the following fields of science: mathematics and mechanics, physics, astronomy, meteorology and geosciences.
Mathematics: analytic number theory (zeta function and arithmetic functions); theory of sets; algebraic graph theory; classical and complex analysis; special functions and orthogonal polynomials; ordinary and partial differential equations (qualitative theory, differential equations with non-integer order terms); Fourier analysis and approximation theory (wavelets and Gabor frameworks, microlocal analysis); functional analysis (generalized functions and asymptotic expansion of integral transforms, equations with singularities, stochastic equations, theory of stationary point processes); numerical analysis and optimization (interpolative and quadratic processes, extremal problems, combinatorial optimization); differential geometry; general topology (pattern recognition); teaching of mathematics.
Physics: quantum theory of information, quantum logic, basic principles of quantum mechanics; physics of plasma and gas electric discharge, interaction of plasma with solid surfaces, spectroscopic diagnostics, shapes and intensities of spectral lines; representations of linear and affine groups of symmetry, world spinors, affine gravity, quantum chromodynamics and hadron spectroscopy, ATLAS experiment at CERN, symmetry, nanophysics, quantum correlations; physics of superconductivity: ferromagnet-superconductive hybrids, quantum interferometry; physics of strongly correlated systems and high-temperature superconductivity; physics of “soft matter”, biophysics of proteins and DNA and physics of soliton waves.
Astronomy: celestial mechanics, small bodies of the Solar system.
Meteorology: numerical modeling of atmospheric processes.
Geosciences: geodynamics, petrology, geochemistry, mineralogy and paleontology.
Research is also conducted within the SASA Board for Selenium and Magnesium and the Board for the Earth’s Climate System Dynamics and the Work of Milutin Milanković, by departmental committees for the geodynamics of the Earth’s crust, paleoflora and paleofauna, for Karst and speleology, and for geochemistry, as well as through 23 individual projects of department members in the fields of mathematics, physics, astronomy, meteorology and geosciences.
The Department is also in charge of the SASA Institute for Mathematics.
