Welcome to Chair of Optimization and Control (KOS)

The Jagiellonian University in Krakow is one of the most famous and old universities in Europe founded more than 600 years ago. Currently, it is one of the best universities in Poland. The team KOS leaded by Professor Migorski is internationally recognized in the field of Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Mechanics for the high quality of its scientific production. It is a very dynamic team working on modern and challenging topics. A short research on the web shows that the number of publications of the team is impressive and most of their results were published in top journals.

The research team KOS includes faculty members which have been actively working in related research fields for many years. All of them have rich publishing records and are intensively involved in international research. Most of team members have double degrees in Computer Science and Mathematics. We have background in mathematical sciences and research contacts with physicists and engineering scientists. Today, the research interests of the KOS members are numerous and complementary, and they cover various areas of Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Mechanics. All members with habilitation have co-authored at least one research monograph.

All students from many different backgrounds who wish to enter the courses of our group are warmly welcomed. We offer students the unique possibility to participate in interdisciplinary programs and conduct high level research. We lead PhD students to the frontiers of mathematical research, where they can begin to push back those frontiers.

The objective of the team is to obtain significant results in the study of new, nonstandard and challenging problems, and to diffuse them within publication in well recognized journals and international conferences. Keeping in mind the multidisciplinary character of its research field as well as the hard competition in the domain, the interest of the team is to diversify its collaborations.


(1) "Emerging Trends in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics" Conference will be held in Krakow in the summer of 2018 organized by the Chair of Optimizationa and Control at the Jagiellonian University. The conference will be a continuation of the conference ETAMM organized in Perpignan in 2016. The main aim of the conference will be to identify new trends in the domains of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, and their Applications in Physics, Engineering Sciences, Biology and Economy. The conference will bring together mathematicians, interdisciplinary scientists and engineers from all over the world. It will be a scientifically enriching and socially exciting event hosted in one of the oldest universities in Europe.

(5) Conference "Singular PDEs, Analytical Tools and Applications", June 24-27, 2015, Male Ciche, Poland is organized by the Chair of Optimization and Control of Jagiellonian University, jointly with University of Warsaw, and Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

(6) Professor Anna Ochal has been awarded the Polonium Grant on "Mathematical and Numerical Analysis for Contact Problems with Friction" from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Poland for years 2014-2015. The project Polonium is coordinated by Professor Anna Ochal and Professor Mikael Barboteu from University of Perpignan Via Domitia, Perpignan, France.
