Dissertation topics in academic year 2021/2022

  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. 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.
  4. Descriptional and computational complexity of formal languages
    supervisor: Dr. Galina Jirásková, MI SAS, Košice,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.
    Annotation: The aim is to get the descriptional and computational complexity of formal languages and operations on formal languages represented by various types of formal systems such as deterministic, nondeterministic, and alternating automata, regular expressions or context-free grammars. We focus on the trade-offs between different models of formal systems, as well as on the complexity of language operations with arguments that satisfy some special properties.
  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. Recurrent families of discrete probability distributions in collective risk models
    supervisor: Assoc. Prof. Ján Mačutek, MI SAS, Bratislava,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.
    consultant: Gábor Szűcs, PhD. (FMFI UK)
    Annotation: The disseration thesis will focus on analyses of recurrent families of discrete probability distributions which are used in actuarial science. The topic is important, because the new directive Solvency II changed several aspects which substantially affected computations and methodology of insurance companies. The crucial task of insurance companies is the best possible estimation of the number of insured events, of insurance claims, and of tech-nical reserves. The thesis will concentrate mainly on theoretical research in probablity and mathematical modelling, but it will address also some practical applications of actuarial science.
  7. Classes of penalty and other functions in the aggregation theory
    supervisor: Assoc. Prof. Martin Papčo, MI SAS, Košice,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.

  8. Algebraic properties of aggregation functions
    supervisor: Dr. Jozef Pócs, MI SAS, Košice,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.

  9. 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.

  10. Aggregation on lattices
    supervisor: Mgr. Andrea Zemánková, PhD, MI SAS, Bratislava,
    e-mail: Please enable javascript to see e-mail addresses.
    Annotation: This topic is focused on the study of aggregation functions on lattices, as an extension of known aggregation functions defined on the unit interval. The aim of the study are mainly aggregation functions on special lattices and partially ordered sets.
