The Department of Mathematics provides tuition

in the bachelor study programmes:

  • Mathematics in business and public administration
  • Mathematics for education (the study is realised in combination with another subject for the two-subject program)

in the follow-up master’s degree study programme:

  • Teaching of mathematics at secondary schools (the study is realised in combination with another subject for the two-subject program)

The Department of Mathematics also provides training in mathematical disciplines in the study programmes of other departments of the Faculty of Science and other faculties of Jan Evangelista Purkyně University.

Research activity of the Department of Mathematics focuses especially on the following areas:

  • Diagnosis of the causes of pupil’s failure in mathematical problem solving and suggestion of dealing with these failures
  • Methodological improvements in data envelopment analysis and in solving economic problems
  • General topology, topologic groups and theory of categories
  • Varieties of ordered semigroups
  • Real analysis and its applications to the problems of the calculus of variations and differential equations
  • Phylogenetic and ontogenetic development of the infinity concept

The Department of Mathematics also carries out complementary activities in the field of data processing for businesses and institutions and in the field of organizing courses in statistics and data processing.
