O Zakładzie

The Department of Algebra and Algebraic Geometry was founded in 2000. It is, in some sense, a continuation of the IM PAN Department of Algebra in Toruń, directed at first by Jerzy Łoœś and then by Stanisław Balcerzyk. For the history of the latter, see the summary by S. Balcerzyk published in the booklet edited on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of IM PAN. We describe first


PERIOD 2000-2008

The following mathematicians worked in the Department of Algebra and Algebraic Geometry in the period 2000-2008: Janusz Adamus, Marcin Chałupnik, Sławomir Cynk, Piotr Hajac, Joanna Jaszuńska, Zbigniew Jelonek, Paweł Kasprzak, Jarosław Kędra, Oskar Kędzierski, Mariusz Koras, Urlich Kraehmer, Adrian Langer, Tomasz Maszczyk, Jerzy Płonka, Piotr Pragacz (head), Agata Smoktunowicz, Tomasz Szemberg, Marek Szyjewski, Halszka Tutaj-Gasińska, Bronisław Wajnryb, Andrzej Weber, and Bartosz Zieliński.

The spectrum of the interest of mathematicians in the department was marked by the following topics (displayed in alphabetical order):

  1. Affine algebraic geometry (Jelonek)
  2. Algebraic topology (Chałupnik, Weber)
  3. Classical algebra and combinatorics (Pragacz)
  4. Complex projective algebraic geometry (Cynk, Kedzierski, Langer, Pragacz, Tutaj-Gasińska, Szemberg)
  5. Enumerative theory of singularities (Pragacz, Weber)
  6. Geometry and topology of surfaces (Wajnryb)
  7. K-theory (Szyjewski)
  8. Moduli spaces (Langer)
  9. Noncommutative geometry and quantum groups (Hajac, Kasprzak, Kraehmer, Maszczyk, Zieliński)
  10. Noncommutative rings (Smoktunowicz)
  11. Symplectic geometry and topology (Kędra)
  12. Universal algebra (Płonka)

The "center" of mathematical life of the department was the seminar IMPANGA. Its leading subject was complex algebraic geometry. The seminar worked each two weeks (for two sessions with a break for discussions), and gathered algebraic geometers from all around of Poland. The speakers of this seminar included: F. Hirzebruch, H. Esnault, G. van der Geer, J. Kollar and A. Lascoux.

IMPANGA also organized at the Banach Center mini-schools, directed especially towards young researchers from all around of Europe. Let us mention here, e.g., the following mini-schools of IMPANGA : "Characteristic classes" (2002), "Schubert varieties" (2003), and "Moduli spaces" (2005). In 2003, IMPANGA organized jointly with Institutes of Mathematics of Bulgarian, Hungarian and Romanian Academy of Sciences, the Conference and Summer School "Algebraic Geometry, Algebra, and Applications" in Borovetz (Bulgaria). Two sessions, prepared by IMPANGA at the Banach Center for a wider audience (from history and philosophy of sciences), were devoted to Grothendieck (2004) and Hoene-Wroński (2007). 

The outgrowth of seminars and schools of IMPANGA was published in two volumes: 
Topics in cohomological studies of algebraic varieties (2005),
Algebraic cycles, sheaves, shtukas, and moduli (2007), edited by Birkhauser-Verlag, 
and in: 
Hoene-Wroński: Życie, Matematyka i Filozofia (2008), edited by IM PAN.

The seminar IMPANGA also stimulated research of mathematicians not working directly in the department. Let us mention here, e.g., the papers: "A cascade of determinantal Calabi-Yau threefolds" by M. and G. Kapustka from the Jagiellonian University (math.AG/08023669), and "On Thom polynomials for A4(-) via Schur functions" by O. Ozturk from METU in Ankara (Serdica Math. J. 33 (2007), 301-320).

Another very active seminar in the department, organized by P. Hajac and T. Maszczyk, was 
"Noncommutative geometry and quantum groups". For the content of this seminar (among the speakers were Fields medalists: A. Connes and M. Kontsevich), and for many related activities on noncommutative geometry at IM PAN, including the Conference in honor of Paul Baum's 70th Birthday (2007), see

Langer, in 2017/20 C. Eyral and M. Kapustka. The seminar meets every second Friday (for two sessions) and gathers algebraic geometers from all around Poland (notably from Warsaw, Kraków, Poznań, Gdańsk, Szczecin and Wrocław}. Usually we have 14 meetings of the seminar in an academic year. The speakers at the IMPANGA Seminar have included: H. Esnault, H. Hamm, T. Krasiński, W. Kucharz, J.M. Landsberg, R. Laterveer, T. Mostowski, A. Nemethi, K. O'Grady, A. Parusiński, M. Roth, S. Schroer and J. Schuermann. On January 31, 2020, we hosted the 400th meeting of the IMPANGA seminar with speakers: F. Catanese and Le Dung Trang. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the last 4 meetings in Spring 2020 proceeded online.

An important event was publication in 2018 of the proceedings of the conference IMPANGA 15 which held in April 2015 and was organized by participants of the seminar. The volume "Schubert Varieties, Equivariant Cohomology and Characteristic Classes, Impanga 15" appeared in EMS Series of Congress Reports. The editors were: J. Buczyński, M. Michałek and E. Postinghel. Apart from a collection of contributions by the attendees of the conference IMPANGA 15, the book contains the notes from the major lecture series of the seminar in the period 2010–2015. Both original research papers and self-contained expository surveys can be found there. The articles circulate around a broad range of topics within algebraic geometry such as vector bundles, Schubert varieties, degeneracy loci, homogeneous spaces, equivariant cohomology, Thom polynomials, characteristic classes, symmetric functions and algebraic geometry in positive characteristic.

Members of the department organized several workshops and conferences.

M. Donten-Bury, G. Kapustka, M. Kapustka, G. Mongardi and P. Pragacz organized in the period 11-15.09.2017, at the Banach Center in Warsaw, the Workshop "Periodsand Ricci flat manifolds".

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Banach Center Workshop "Branched coverings and symmetric functions" conducted by M. Dołęga, and planned for April 2020 did not take place, and is postponed to some later time.

In 2019 two Committees: Organizing and Scientific advanced organization of the conference IMPANGA 20 on Schubert varieties. The Organizing Committee was: C. Eyral, G. Kapustka, M. Kapustka, P. Pragacz and H. Tutaj-Gasińska. The Scientific Committee was: D. Anderson, S. Billey, I. Coskun, L. Manivel and A. Yong. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the conference IMPANGA 20 planned for June 21-27, 2020 in Będlewo did not take place.  We hope to be able to organize this conference during the summer 2021 in the same place. The new planned date is July 11-17, 2021.

O Zakładzie

In the recent years the research activity of members of the Department has covered a wide range of topics concerning functional analysis and its relationships with other fields. Below we present the most important results obtained in recent years.

Applications of interpolation theory to functional analysis. A modern approach by interpolation of Banach spaces is presented in [DMM1] to prove the abstract type Littlewood inequalities for inclusion maps between Banach symmetric sequence spaces. This extends the famous analogues in Lp-spaces due to Littlewood, Orlicz, Bennett and Carl. These results have many different applications, e.g. to eigenvalue distributions of compact operators [DMM2], local theory of Banach spaces and theory of interpolation functors [M], s-numbers in finite-dimensional Schatten classes [DMM3].

Approximation theory. The study of generalized Franklin systems was undertaken and results were presented in the series of papers (see e.g.[GK1]). Non-linear m-term greedy approximation with respect to the Haar system and other wavelet systems was studied. In particular stability of greedy approximation in the space BV was obtained in [BDKPW]. Important results about quasi-greedy bases we obtained in [GK2],[W].

Local theory of Banach spaces. In [MT1] the geometry of random sections and projections of symmetric convex bodies was investigated. Relation between optimal radii of Euclidean balls inscribed in sections and superscribed on projections of symmetric convex bodies was given in [MT2]. A lower bound for Banach-Mazur distances between symmetric polytopes generated by subgaussian vectors was given in [LMOT].

Methods of the theory of locally convex spaces and their applications to classical analysis. Derived functors on locally convex spaces are applied to the problem of parameter dependence of solutions of linear partial differential operators [BD] and to the problem which composition operators on the space of real analytic functions have closed range [DL]. The structure of the corresponding spaces of functions or distributions is analyzed [DV].

Sobolew spaces. In [PW1] the unconditional structure of Sobolev spaces and spaces of functions of bounded variation are studied. Faliure of local unconditional structure of Soblev spaces in L1-norms and spaces of functions with bounded variation are dscussed [PW2]. The bounded approximation property of the space of functons with bounded variation is established in [ACDP]. The relation between singularities of vector measure and constrains on directions of its Fourier transform is investigated in [RW].

Topological algebras. Several papers deal with ideals in F-algebras. In [Z1] it is shown that a unital F-algebra has all left (right) maximal ideals closed if and only if it is a Q-algebra, i.e. the group of its invertible elements is open. In [Z2] it is shown that a unital F-algebra has all one-sided ideals closed if and only if it is both left and right Noetherian. In [Z3] it is constructed an m-convex B0-algebra in which all left but not all right ideals are closed. Other results concern topologically invertible elements and operators on locally convex spaces and their hyperinvariant subspaces.

O Zakładzie

The Katowice Branch of the Institute of Mathematics was founded in 1966. Jan Mikusiński was the head of the Branch until his retirement in 1984. From 1985 to 1994 the Branch was headed by Piotr Antosik, and then by Ryszard Rudnicki. The following mathematicians worked in the Branch: B. Aniszczyk, P. Antosik, J. Burzyk, T. Dłotko, C. Ferens, P. Hallala, A. Kamiński, W. Kierat, C. Kliś, S. Krasińska, M. Kuczma, A. Lasota, S. Lewandowska, Z. Lipecki, K. Łoskot, J. Mikusiński, P. Mikusiński, J. Mioduszewski, J. Pochciał, R. Rudnicki, Z. Sadlok, K. Skórnik, W. Smajdor, T. Szarek, Z. Tyc, J. Uryga and P. Uss.

The main line of research has been closely related to Prof. Mikusiński's interests. The dominating topics of investigations are sequential theory of distributions, Mikusiński operational calculus and convergence theory. The main results obtained in this area are: introduction of regular and irregular operations on distributions and local derivatives, functional description of the convergence in the field of Mikusiński operators, axiomatic theory of convergence, diagonal theorems and Paley-Wiener type theorems for regular operators. Moreover, several results concerning applications of operational calculus to differential equations, theory of controllability and special functions have been obtained.

Numerous results obtained by Mikusiński's team are presented in five books written by Mikusiński, Antosik, Sikorski and Boehme. Mikusiński's books have been translated into various languages, for example "Operational Calculus'' was published in Polish, English, Russian, German, Hungarian and Japanese.

In the early nineties a group of scientists connected with Prof. Andrzej Lasota began to work in the Branch. Their main research interests are in probability theory, partial differential equations and biomathematics. The main results obtained are: sufficient conditions for asymptotic stability of Markov operators and semigroups, asymptotic behaviour of solutions of generalized Fokker-Planck equations, constructions of semifractals and global properties of nonlinear models of population dynamics.

  1. Mathematical aspects of data analysis from gravitational wave detectors (Andrzej Królak).

Main activity are applications of methods of statistics and the theory of stochastic processes to the problem of detection of gravitational waves in the noise of the detector.

Detection of gravitational waves that was achieved by LIGO detectors in the year 2015 provided confirmation of Einstein’s theory of gravity and opened a new window on the Universe.

We specialize in searches for gravitational wave signals from rotating neutron stars. This is a very challenging problem as it requires extraction from the noise of the detector extremely weak signals and searches over extremely large parameter space.

We have developed a number of theoretical algorithms and tools to performed such searches that are summarized in publication [1] and [2]. Using these tools we developed a number of computer codes to search for such signals. The codes are used for the analysis of LIGO and Virgo gravitational wave detector data and resulted in several publications of the LIGO - Virgo consortium.

  1. Principal  structures of geometry and physics (Janusz Grabowski, Zohreh Ravanpak)

We are dealing with canonical algebraic and geometric structures that play fundamental role in description of various systems in physics are studied in the language of differential geometry and super-geometry.

Among them are Poisson and Jacobi structures (e.g. symplectic and contact), Lie and Courant algebroids, Dirac structures, generalized (e.g. complex) geometries, Nijenhuis tensors and the corresponding contractions, principles of variational calculus – all this with applications to Theoretical Mechanics, especially to frame-independent description of mechanical systems, foundations of Quantum Mechanics and the geometry of quantum states, quantum information and description of entanglement. Recently we work also on the geometry of nonassociative structures (loops, etc).

The Section of Mathematical Statistics and Its Applications

The Section of Mathematical Statistics and Its Applications stemmed from the Department of Applied Mathematics of the State Institute of Mathematics, which was established in November 20, 1948. In 1949 the Department consisted of six sections. Two of them: the General Section of Applications, headed by Hugo Steinhaus, and the Section of Technical Applications, directed by Jan Mikusiński, were located in Wrocław. These two sections formed later on the Section of Applications to Biology, Economics and Technology, directed by Hugo Steinhaus until his retirement in 1960. Julian Perkal (1960-1965) and Stefan Zubrzycki (1965-1968) were later directors. The Section has played a very important role in the Wrocław scientific community, in particular through many collaborations with various professionals and educational work in applied probability and statistics. The journal Zastosowania Matematyki (the subtitle Applicationes Mathematicae added in 1965), founded by Hugo Steinhaus in 1953, with help of Jan Oderfeld, was a significant platform for the activity of the group. This activity was further supported by Julian Perkal, who founded the Listy Biometryczne journal in 1964. The journal is currently published as Biometrical Letters.

From 1968 to 1991 the Section was headed by Witold Klonecki and was renamed to the Section of Mathematical Statistics and Its Applications in 1973. At that time, the main activity was focused on PhD studies in modern statistical methodology, initially with the kind aid of colleagues from Wrocław University. Members of the group participated very actively in the organization of a series of conferences, beginning with one in Wisła in 1973. Many of these conferences were international. Symposium to honour Jerzy Neyman (1974), the European Meeting of Statisticians (1981) and Banach Center Semester on Nonparametric and Robust Methods (1984) are prominent examples. Witold Klonecki was also one of the founders of the Probability and Mathematical Statistics journal (1980).

Since 1991 until 2004 the Section was headed by Tadeusz Bednarski. Apart from research in mathematical statistics, much attention was focused on direct applied work.

Section of Applied Probability

The Section of Applied Probability originated in a long process rooted in the Department of Applied Mathematics of the State Mathematical Institute, founded in 1948. Two Warsaw's sections of this department were forerunners of it. Namely, the Section of Statistical Quality Control and the Actuarial Section. In accordance with the evolving interests of the members, the Section of Statistical Quality Control was renamed to the Industrial Applications Section in 1962. In the period from 1952 to 1970 these sections were directed by Jan Oderfeld, with short break in 1959 when Czesław Rajski was in charge of it. At that time, the research was mainly focused on statistical quality control, operations research and reliability theory. The Actuarial Section evolved into the Section of Mathematical Statistics. In 1951, Oskar Lange was put in charge of the section and he did it until 1958. In 1958-1960 Marek Fisz was the leader of it while later on the section was headed by Wiesław Sadowski. Interests of the group were focused on statistics, decision making and econometry.

These two evolving groups were the predecessors the Applied Probability Section, formally founded in 1972.

The section was headed by Robert Bartoszyński, Ryszard Zieliński and Tomasz Rychlik in the periods 1972-1985, 1985-2002 and 2002-2004, respectively. In the early seventies, the scientific interests of the group switched to probabilistic modelling (mostly, but not only, of biological phenomena), controlled Markov chains, stochastic approximation and random search. In recent years, various issues of mathematical statistics, including robust statistics, fixed precision estimation and moment bounds have become major focuses of the section's research.

The section was active in the organization of courses in applied mathematics, enhancing education in a wide spectrum of applied probability. Also, starting from 1971, Eugeniusz Fidelis annually organized the very popular National Conferences on Applications of Mathematics. Members of the group organized many international conferences in statistics, including Banach Center Semesters on Mathematical Statistics (1976) and Sequential Methods in Statistics (1981), among others.

O Zakładzie

Research during the last few years concerned different branches of number theory as well as fields and polynomials, which will be reviewed in order adopted by Mathematical Reviewers.

In elementary number theory a lower estimate has been proved under certain conditions in [9] for the number of solutions of a linear homogeneous congruence in a multidimensional box. The same, best possible, estimate under different conditions is in the course of publications.

A problem on diophantine equations over rational integers has been solved in [1], binary forms over an arbitrary field have been considered in [7] and forms in many variables in [14]. An almost explicit construction of a point on an elliptic curve over a finite field has been given in [17].

A problem on the length (a kind of a height) of polynomials with real coefficients, related to diophantine approximation has been studied in [8] and [12], a similar study of polynomials with complex coefficients is in course of publication. Paper [6] studies a problem in geometry of numbers.

Elementary analytic number theory is represented by [16] and a more advanced on by [5]. [15] concerns elementary algebraic number theory [2] K-theory and [3] finite fields.

In field theory and polynomials papers [3] and [11] are concerned with localization of zeros of polynomials in one variable, papers [10] and [11] with reducibility of symmetric polynomials.

The following topics have been studied in the period 1999--2008:

  1. Representation of integer vectors as a linear combination of shorter integer vectors (I. Aliev, A. Schinzel)
  2. The Milnor group K2F (J. Browkin)
  3. Distribution of primitive roots (A. Paszkiewicz, A. Schinzel)
  4. Pseudoprimes and their generalizations (A. Rotkiewicz, A. Schinzel)
  5. Reducibility of polynomials (A. Schinzel)
  6. The number of non-zero coefficients of the greatest common divisor of two polynomials with given numbers of non-zero coefficients (A. Schinzel)
  7. The Mahler measure and other measures of polynomials (A. Schinzel)
  8. Weak automorphs of binary forms (A. Schinzel)
  9. Number of solutions of a linear homogeneous congruence in a box (A. Schinzel)
  10. Representation of a multivariate polynomial as a sum of univariate polynomials in linear forms (A. Schinzel)
  11. Polynomial and exponential congruences to a prime modulus (M. Skałba, A. Schinzel)
  12. Congruences for L-functions (J. Urbanowicz)
  13. Divisibility of a generalized Vandermonde determinant by powers of two (J. Urbanowicz)

Several people not employed by the Number Theory Section have collaborated in the study of the above topics, namely W. Schmidt in 1), M. Zakarczemny in 9), A. Białynicki in 10), K. Williams in 12) and S. Spież in 13).

O Zakładzie

Below are the descriptions of the main research results or research areas of the full time employees. 

Sylwia Antoniuk

My main areas of research are Combinatorics and Geometric Group Theory with special interest in random structures such as random groups, random simplicial complexes, random graphs and hypergraphs. My main results concern the study of the evolution of the random triangular group.

Łukasz Garncarek

My research interests revolve around geometric group theory and representation theory of groups. Roughly speaking, I investigate unitary representations arising from geometric group theory. For instance, in my PhD thesis I constructed a large family of irreducible unitary representations of an arbitrary Gromov hyperbolic group, using its action on the visual boundary. Among other things, I am interested in extending this construction into analogues of the principal series and complementary series, appearing in the representation theory of Lie groups.

Tadeusz Januszkiewicz

I am interested in topology aspherical spaces, especially manifolds. Proving asphericity is often done by exhibiting a metric, or a similar combinatorial structure, with properties resembling nonpositive curvature. There are several abstract schemes and constructions in this direction, but there are also natural candidates for such approach arising in nature, such as iterated blowups or ramified covers.

Piotr Nowak

I am interested mainly in geometric and analytic properties of discrete groups and their applications to other areas, such as higher index theory. The main topics include rigidity properties of groups, such as various strengthening of property (T), as well as the opposite properties viewed as versions of amenability. These notions often can be expressed in terms of (co)homological properties of groups or spaces and have a significant intersection with large scale geometry and topology of non-compact manifolds.

Damian Osajda

I am working mostly in Geometric Group Theory. My main area of interest is studying complexes with some nonpositive curvature features, and groups acting on them. This includes objects that are: Gromov hyperbolic, small cancellation, CAT(0) cubical, (weakly) systolic, bucolic, weakly modular etc.  

Stanisław Spież

My major areas of research are shape theory (and indirectly homotopy theory), dimension theory, theory of embeddings and game theory.
Several of my papers in shape theory are devoted to studying movable spaces (their role is similar to that of CW-complexes in homotopy theory) and deformation dimension (which corresponds to the homotopical dimension). Some of my results in that area are related to the classical Whitehead and Hurewicz theorems in homotopy theory. Also I investigated the possibility of representing the strong shape category in the homotopy category.
Another area of my research is related to the following questions: "When can a pair of mappings of compact metric spaces X and Y into Rn be approximated by mappings with disjoint images, and also when can a map X→Rn be approximated by embeddings?'' Since the 1930's the standard answer to the latter has been "It suffices that 2 dim X < n" turns out that it is sufficient that dim(X×X) < n. Some other papers of mine concern the first question (which is more general).
Also I was interested in the questions of embedding polyhedra into Euclidean spaces, which were related to the van Kampen and Haefliger-Weber theorems. Recently I am also involved in research in game theory. Some results on the existence of equilibria in a class of games can be proved by using topological tools, such as coincidence theorems of Borsuk-Ulam type.
Several of the above results were obtained in collaboration with the following mathematicians: B. Günther, S. Nowak, J. Segal, R. Simon, A. Skopenkov and H. Toruńczyk.

Henryk Toruńczyk

Major part of my research concerned topological properties of infinite-dimensional spaces, such as the Hilbert cube or Banach spaces. I consider the following my main results:

  • developing a method of constructing smooth partitions of unity on Banach spaces in the absence of separability [20];
  • proving that a product of an absolute retract with an appropriate normed linear space becomes homeomorphic to that space [21];
  • proving, simultaneously with S. Ferry, that the homeomorphism group of a Hilbert cube manifold is a manifold [22];
  • characterizing infinite-dimensional manifolds topologically (see R. D. Edwards' article in SLN 770, 278-302). As a consequence it turned out that infinite-dimensional Banach spaces of the same weight are homeomorphic;
  • examining, jointly with S. Spież, when mappings X, Y→Rk can be ε-approximated by mappings with disjoint images [18];
  • establishing, jointly with R. Simon and S. Spież, the existence of equilibria in a class of infinitely repeated games. (The proof in [19] depended on developing an appropriate topological aparatus.)

O Pracowni

Noncommutative geometry entered the research programme of IMPAN in 1999. Five years later, with the help of the Warsaw University transfer-of-knowledge grant Quantum Geometry, this branch of IMPAN's mathematics gained an international dimension. Since 2004, there are about 10-20 visitors per year who contribute their research experience and give talks at the weekly Noncommutative Geometry Seminar held in the Institute. Among our invitees were Alain Connes and Maxim Kontsevitch, and the seminar talks are announced to about 200 mathematicians worldwide.

The aforementioned scientific activity helped to cristalize a local research team consisting of Piotr M. Hajac, Ulrich Krähmer, Tomasz Maszczyk and Bartosz Zieliński. Ulrich Krähmer was a Marie Curie fellow in the years 2005-2007. In January 2008, the Noncommutative Geometry Research Unit was formally created by the Institute Scientific Council. In October 2008, the team was enlarged by Emily Burgunder, who chose IMPAN for her European Postdoctoral Institute fellowship.

Another chapter of Noncommutative Geometry at IMPAN opened in 2009 with the EU- project Geometry and Symmetry of Quantum Spaces. Co-sponsored by the Polish Government, this 4-year international research staff exchange programme established a transcontinental network of 12 nodes with IMPAN as the co-ordinating node. In particular, we welcomed in our group Paul F. Baum who joined us as a Visiting Professor working at IMPAN a month each year. Our mathematical environment was further enriched by Adam Skalski who came as another Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow for the years 2010-2012. Together with Paweł Kasprzak, Andrzej Sitarz, and Piotr M. Sołtan employed on short-term position, our Research Unit got top expertise in topological quantum groups and spectral geometry. On the other hand, a Ph.D.-student Jan Rudnik started his collaboration with Baum and Hajac on computing the K-theory of triple-pullback C*-algebras.

The key words characterizing IMPAN's research in noncommutative geometry are: K-theory of operator algebras and free actions of compact quantum groups on unital C*-algebras, multi-pullback C*-algebras and free distributive lattices of ideals, index theory of Fredholm modules and spectral geometry of Dirac operators, locally compact quantum groups and universal (free) quantum groups, Hopf-cyclic homology with coefficients and Chern-Galois character, corings and monoidal categories. The assumed research strategy is to explore the feedback between solving concrete difficult problems and developing new mathematical structures. The proposed approach is to unite rather than separate different fields of mathematics by taking advantage of complemetary tools that they offer. To this end, a large scale and intensive international collaboration is currently sustained and planned for the future.

A more systematic and detailed description of the aforementioned research profile is as follows:

1. K-theory of operator algebras. Computing K-theory of C*-algebras of quantum projective spaces of Toeplitz-type. Noncommutative version of the Borsuk-Ulam for a family quantum spheres. Non-existence of Z/2-equivariant homomorphisms from a unital C*-algebra A into its unital suspension SA. Computing the K-theory of noncommutative Bieberbach manifolds. An example of a published paper in this area of research is: P. F. Baum, P. M. Hajac, R. Matthes, W. Szymański, The K-theory of Heegaard-type quantum 3-spheres, K-Theory (2005) 35:159-186.

2. Hopf-cyclic homology and Chern-Galois character. Applying new coefficients of Hopf-cyclic homology and cohomology. Studying relationships between De Rham cohomology with coefficients in flat vector bundles and cyclic homology with coefficients. Version of the local index formula of Connes-Moscovici for twisted cyclic cohomology. Extending cyclic (co)homology with coefficients from algebras to monoidal functors.

3. Spectral geometry and index theorem. Proving an analogue of the 2-dimensional Gauss-Bonnet for spectral triples. Stability of spectral triples and regular spectral geometries. Constructing spectral triples on cross-products of C*-algebras and studying their topological properties. Studying contact structures by means of noncommutative geometry. An example of a published paper related to this area of research is: P. M. Hajac, R. Matthes, W. Szymański, Noncommutative index theory of mirror quantum spheres, C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris, Ser. I 343 (2006) 731-736.

4. Quantum group actions. Equivalence of principality of actions by compact quantum groups on unital C*-algebras and the Hopf-Galois condition for induced coactions of corresponding polynomial Hopf algebras. Applying non-contractibility of compact quantum groups to prove non-triviality of noncommutative principal bundles obtained by means of the join construction of compact quantum groups. Proving principality of piecewise principal actions. Constructing examples of quantum spaces without group structure and actions of non-compact locally compact quantum groups. Quotienting of locally compact quantum groups by their closed subgroups. Studying quantum symmetry groups of group C*-algebras, especially focused on their representation theory. In particular, classification of compact group actions on the C*-algebra of 2 by 2 matrices. Finding non-classical quantum permutations on two elements.
