Research Activities

Institute of Computer Science as an independent unit of the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Technology was established on 1 September 2000. Initially it was part of the Institute of Physics and Computer Science (as the Department of Computer Science - KMK).

The main directions of our research activities are:

  • The use of the Internet for distance learning and to support teaching,
  • use of computer networks in the research work, the use of image processing methods in astronomy,
  • improvement and development of computational methods used in describing the structure of multi electron atoms (relativistic effects, inter electron correlations).
