Faculty of Mathematics, Physics
and Informatics


In Slovakia, our faculty is consistently ranked as the top research faculty among institutions with the focus on natural sciences. The faculty main research themes are as follows: 


  1. Applications of qualitative and quantitative methods of mathematics and statistics in natural, technical, and economic sciences
  2. Algebraic and geometric structures and discrete mathematics
  3. Methods of mathematical analysis and their applications to dynamical systems 


  1. Physical mechanisms in living systems and their use in biomedicine and biotechnology
  2. Nanotechnologies, materials, and new technologies
  3. Field physics, subatomic and atomic particles and their applications
  4. Physical mechanisms of processes in the environmental system and their use to predict its variations 

Computer Science

  1. Information processing laws and their applications to new information and communication technologies
  2. Methods and tools of computer science to support the knowledge society
