Friday Feb 16, 2018 - prof. Daniel Kráľ - lecture "Models of Large Networks" PDF Print

Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to the public lecture by prof. Daniel Kráľ from University of Warwick, UK, the holder of two ERC grants, whom we would  like to warmly welcome to a full academic position at FI MU in connection  with the *MUNI Award in Science and Humanities* later this year.

His lecture "Models of Large Networks" will be delivered on  ** Friday Feb 16, at 11 - 12h in the lecture room D3 at FI MU. **


A graph is a mathematical model of a network of nodes, which can be, e.g., a computer network or a social network. Problems concerning networks of enormous sizes, which more and more often arise in computer science applications, led to a need to find new mathematical tools to represent and analyze large graphs. The theory of graph limits, whose foundations were laid at Microsoft Research about a decade ago, has responded to these challenges by developing analytic models of large graphs.
We will provide a brief self-contained introduction to the theory of graph limits, which will be followed by the exposition of the most major lines of research. We will conclude with presenting solutions of some of the most significant open problems in the area.

Please come in abundant numbers to this truly unique event in the Czech national context! See also the details here.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Masaryk University  invites applications for fellowships for PhD studies,  commencing during the  year 2018, at the date depending on mutual agreement.

The main research areas of the department are:

  • Category theory
  • Number theory
  • Ordered sets
  • Semigroup theory
  • Geometric complex analysis
  • Lie theory and geometric theory of partial differential equations and  geometric structures
  • Geometric aspects of algebraic topology
  • Nonlinear differential and difference equations
  • Limit periodic and almost periodic systems
  • Hamiltonian and symplectic systems
  • Calculus of variations and optimal control
  • Matematical modelling
  • Statistics and data analysis


More details concerning the research areas can be found at

The fellowships in the amount of 14 000 CZK per month are initially for two semesters  with a possibility of extension, conditional on the student's performance. The candidates must hold a Master degree (before starting the PhD studies), or equivalent. They  should submit a letter of application accompanied by a CV including their study history  and a motivation letter to Martin Kolář ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) not later than December 20, 2017.

They should also arrange for at least 2 letters of recommendation to be mailed directly to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it before December 20, 2017. The successful applicants will be notified as soon as possible but not later than January 30, 2018.
