Computational Mathematics from Charles University is devoted to the development, analysis, algorithmization, and implementation of methods for computer processing of mathematical models. It represents a transition from theoretical mathematics to practically useful results. 


Computational Mathematics from Charles University is a natural continuation of the bachelor's programme General Mathematics, branch Numerical Analysis and Mathematical Modelling at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University. The programme Computational Mathematics is designed in such a way that it enables to admit also students who finished a bachelor's study of Mathematics of another branch or at another university, requiring that they complete the missing knowledge.

Students at Computational Mathematics from Charles University will:

  • obtain knowledge in basic fields of numerical mathematics and computational techniques as well as of the theory of partial differential equations 
  • be able to apply them to the numerical solution of problems in applications, including an efficient computer implementation.
  • be able to design or choose a suitable numerical method, carry out its numerical analysis, implement the computer realization including the analysis of computational error and assess how much the computational results approach the reality.
  • have sufficient qualification for both a doctoral study at a Czech or foreign university and a career in the practice, in particular, in industry, basic and applied research or in public administration.
