Josef Hlávka Honorary Medal for Professor Miroslav Fiedler

Every year, the prominent foundation "Nadání Josefa, Marie a Zdeňky Hlávkových" is awarding Honorary Medals to nestors and founding personalities of the Czech science and art for their lifelong work. Among those who have been awarded the Medal on 16 November 2013, the eve of the National Day of Struggle for Freedom and Democracy, was Professor Miroslav Fiedler, the distinguished member of Department of Mathematical Logic, Algebra and Theoretical Computer Science.

ERC Advanced Grant for Pavel Pudlák

Pavel Pudlák has been awarded ERC Advanced Grant "FEALORA – Feasibility, logic and randomness in computational complexity" for 2014–2018. Another great success: the second ERC Advanced Grant in the Institute of Mathematics and – as in the previous year – the only one awarded to the Czech researcher in 2013. Research of Pudlák's team is motivated by the major unsolved problem in computer science called "P versus NP". They are looking for connections between the computational complexity and the proof complexity which represent two different views of the general phenomenon of complexity.
A call for a post-doc position and for a Ph.D. student position within the FEALORA grant has been opened.
