Dissertation topics in academic year 2023/2024

  1. Algebraic structures motivated by many valued reasonings
    supervisor: Prof. Anatolij Dvurečenskij, MI SAS, Bratislava,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.
    Annotation: The aim is to analyze different algebraic structures like MV-algebras, extended MV-algebras, BL-algebras with their non-commutative generalizations and to study their basic characteristics like states and observables.
  2. Singular fractional differential equations
    supervisor: Prof. Michal Fečkan, MI SAS, Bratislava,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.
    Annotation: The aim is to study the existence of solutions for singularly perturbed systems of fractional differential equations.
  3. Qualitative theory of dynamic equations on time scales
    supervisor: Dr. Irena Jadlovská, MI SAS, Košice,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.
    Annotation: The aim is to study the qualitative properties (asymptotic behavior, the existence of nonoscillatory solutions, the zeros distribution, etc.) of solutions to systems of functional dynamic equations on time scales.
  4. Relative entropies in quantum information theory
    supervisor: Anna Jenčová, DrSc., MI SAS, Bratislava,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.
    Annotation: Relative entropy is one of the fundamental concepts in information theory. These quantities describe operational characteristics of optimal procedures in various types of information-theoretic tasks, but also serve as an important mathematical tool. The class of quantum relative entropies is much richer than the classical counterpart and many of the possible quantities, their interpretations and mutual relations are not fully investigated. We focus on various versions of quantum Rényi relative entropies and their extensions, such as to infinite dimensions or for quantum channels, as well as their possible operational interpretations.
  5. Algorithms for structural analysis of snarks
    supervisor: Assoc. Prof. Ján Karabáš, MI SAS, Banská Bystrica,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.
    Annotation: Main aim is to study and analyse state-of-art algorithms involved in structural analysis of snarks, find and implement new algorithms and use all of them in examination of all known and newly constructed snarks. Another important problem is related to characterisation and classification of known and newly found snarks with respect to specific set of invariants (the set could be extend if needed). The studied algorithms and the gathered data on snarks will serve in attacks to the open problems in the area.
  6. Chromatic and flow problems in graph theory
    supervisor: Martin Kochol, DSc., MI SAS, Bratislava,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.
    Annotation: Study of the smallest counterexamples for hypotheses of nowhere-zero flow problems, constructions of snarks and study relative problems by an agreement.
  7. Tutte polynomials and their generalizations
    supervisor: Martin Kochol, DSc., MI SAS, Bratislava,

    Annotation: The goal is to investigate and to describe modern trends in aggregation theory, and to suggest their possible applications as well.
  9. Algebraic properties of aggregation functions
    supervisor: Dr. Jozef Pócs, MI SAS, Košice,

  10. Derivation of coordinate system of three triangulation sensors
    supervisor: Prof. Gejza Wimmer, MI SAS, Bratislava,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.
    Annotation: The problem is to derive the coordinates of three laser sensors and the corresponding directions of their laser beams using measurements of a calibrated basic parallel scale.
  11. Aggregation on bounded lattices
    supervisor: Mgr. Andrea Zemánková, PhD, MI SAS, Bratislava,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.
    Annotation:

    The theory of aggregation focuses on the expression of complex data in a concise form, usually using a small group of representatives that best characterize the most important properties and structure of the given data, as working with the whole data set is usually very time-consuming and computationally demanding.

    The majority of well-known aggregation methods focus mainly on subsets of real numbers, most often on the unit interval. Recently, the need to work on more complex structures has emerged, as some applications do not allow the data to be transformed into chains of values and require the presence of incomparable values. Therefore, aggregation on lattices and partially ordered sets is currently in the center of attention, focusing mainly on the modification of classical and the design of new methods for aggregation on such structures.

    The aim of the work will be to investigate aggregation functions on lattices, to study the basic properties of aggregation and their modification required by applications. The expected outcome will be the results concerning the construction, characterization and representation of aggregation functions on lattices.


PhD study usually starts on September, 1 unless specified otherwise.
