4 Degree Plans – Mathematical Analysis

Coordinated by: Department of Mathematical Analysis
Study branch coordinator: doc. RNDr. Ondřej Kalenda, Ph.D., DSc.

The mathematical analysis curriculum offers advanced knowledge of fields traditionally forming mathematical analysis (real function theory, complex analysis, functional analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations). It is characterized by a depth of insight into individual topics and emphasis on their mutual relations and interconnections. Advanced knowledge of these topics is provided by a set of obligatory courses. Elective courses deepen the knowledge of selected fields, especially those related to the diploma thesis topic. Seminars provide contact with contemporary mathematical research. Mathematical analysis has close relationships with other mathematical disciplines, such as probability theory, numerical analysis and mathematical modelling. Students become familiar with these relationships in some of the elective courses. The programme prepares students for doctoral studies in mathematical analysis and related subjects. Applications of mathematical theory, theorems and methods to applied problems broaden the qualification to etemployment in a non-research environment.

The graduate will acquire advanced knowledge in principal fields of mathematical analysis (real function theory, complex analysis, functional analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations), understand their interconnections and relations to other mathematical disciplines. He/she will be able to apply advanced theoretical methods to real problems. The programme prepares students for doctoral studies but the knowledge and abilities acquired can be put into use in practical occupations as well.

Assumed knowledge

It is assumed that an incoming student of this branch has sufficient knowledge of the following topics and fields:

Differential calculus of one and several real variables. Integral calculus of one real variable. Measure theory, Lebesgue measure and Lebesgue integral. Basic algebra (matrix calculus, vector spaces).
Foundations of general topology (metric and topological spaces, completeness and compactness), complex analysis (Cauchy integral theorem, residue theorem, conformal maps) and functional analysis (Banach and Hilbert spaces, dual spaces, bounded operators, compact operators, basic theory of distributions).
Elements of the theory of ordinary differential equations (basic properties of solutions and maximal solutions, linear systems, stability theory) and of partial differential equations (quasilinear first order equations, Laplace theorem and heat equation – fundamental solution and maximum principle, wave equation – fundamental solution, finite speed of wave propagation).

Should an incoming student not meet these entry requirements, the coordinator of the study programme may assign a method of acquiring the necessary knowledge and abilities, which may for example mean taking selected bachelor's courses, taking a reading course with an instructor, or following tutored independent study.
