Doppler Institute, a common enterprise of three
academic institutions, is a five-year project launched within the
of Basic Research'' supported by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports
of the Czech Republic under the code number LC06002.
Its mission is to create a first class research
center in the field of mathematical physics and applied mathematics
with the horizont of one generation and strong ties to leading European
institutes. The project stems from a longtime, mostly informal
collaboration of some participants; it aims at its strengthening by
putting it on a more solid basis and cultivating links between
different research topics. A strategic goal is to push forward a
generation which would be able to lead in ten or more years.
The collaboration mentioned above dates many year back, in some cases
more than three decades, being concentrated around a
mathematical-physics seminar and common research interests. In 1993 the
original Doppler Institute
was established as a platform to develop this collaboration further.
Many results were achieved since then as the publications
as well as meetings, supervised PhD theses and other activities
summarized in the annual reports
witness. At the same time, lack of funding did not allow to use the
full potential of this collaboration; the present project aims at
making a further step in this direction.
