  Everything is both simpler
than we can imagine,
and more complicated
that we can conceive.

Main areas of interests

My research is divided into several areas. The first area is represented by combinatorial theory of complex networks. This deals mainly with research of graph theoretical properties of complex networks or corresponding models.

  • Extremal propeerties of CN characteristics
  • Specific properties of CN such as sparsity or clustered nature
  • Algorithms for CN

Another topic from graph theory is the analysis of symmetrical relational structures and particularly those meeting homogeneity condition. Within this area the interesting parts are:

  • Homomorphism-homogeneity of various structures
  • Classes defined by various types of homogeneity
  • Relational and lift complexity

Another area is area of interval optimization, where the main areas are:

  • Extending linear algebra with interval aritmetics
  • Solvability of interval (linear) systems

Last area is that of dynamical systems with application to neurology, climatology, and cybersecurity where the main area of interests are:

  • Reliability of complex network construction
  • Modelling of complex network and graph limits
  • Utilization of complex network measure to analyse real-world phenomena
The results from these areas can be found at publication page.
