RESEARCH FOCUS

The research, which is a part of an overall program, will be focused mainly on development of new methods for detection and computation of exact projective equivalences for finite sets of points (solutions of polynomial systems) and for further special algebraic varieties (mainly surfaces in 3-space), and of approximate equivalences and symmetries of perturbed objects. Possible extensions where one of the input objects is given by the implicit description and the second one by a parameterization will be also considered. An interesting closely connected task (possibly simplifying further considerations) is to recognize a type of given algebraic varieties which are described by their implicit representation f(x) = 0 for an irreducible polynomial defined over some subfield K of R, typically Q or its algebraic extensions – exactly or with perturbed coefficients.

 

JOB DESCRIPTION

Selected researchers will strengthen an existing top-quality research team of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen. Their main tasks will be to engage in the activities of the team of experts under the guidance of a mentor and to fulfill tasks specified by the R&D activity plan. Their own scientific work will include publication of R&D results in prestigious impact journals, participation in major conferences, obtaining applied results, involvement in national and international research projects, and organization of the professional life at the workplace (seminars, conferences).

The mentor of the position is prof. RNDr. Miroslav Lávička, Ph.D.
