Applied Mathematics Research Group

The work of the group covers the areas of quantum computing, discrete mathematics, theory of elasticity, probability theory, statistics and reliability. Current projects of group include:

  • Quantum computing and quantum optical communications.
  • Finite Quantum Systems. Galois fields in Quantum Computing and applications to coding and cryptography.
  • Algebraic number theory (e.g., p-adic numbers) in Quantum Mechanics and harmonic analysis.
  • Analytic functions in quantum computing.
  • Group theory methods (e.g., profinite groups) in quantum computing.
  • Lattices, topology and logic in the context of quantum computing.
  • Time-frequency analysis, wavelets, applications to large data analysis.
  • Mesoscopic Josephson devices.
  • Solution of non-linear partial differential equations and their systems.
  • Continuum mechanics, theory of Elasticity.
  • Probability and statistics.
  • Reliability theory.
  • Numerical analysis and Pade approximants.

The group has a very high international profile and collaborates with many universities worldwide.
