Laboratory of applied mathematics and statistics

The members of Laboratory of Applied Mathematics and Statistics (LUMS) carry out educational activities within basic mathematical subjects in both undergraduate and graduate study programs offered by Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Ljubljana.

The laboratory members conduct research in the following fields of mathematics:

  • analysis (Fourier analysis, functional analysis),
  • algebra (number theory, matrix algebra, operator algebra, quantum theory),
  • numerical mathematics (numerical integration, numerical methods for differential equations),
  • computational mathematics (database modeling, artificial intelligent systems),
  • mathematical logic (classical logic, modal logic),
  • probability and statistics (statistical tests, multiple linear regression),
  • mathematical modeling and simulations (visualization, neural networks).

The two primary scopes of Laboratory of Applied Mathematics are the transfer of knowledge into practice and the solution of problems arising in other fields of research using mathematical tools and methods. The laboratory has been collaborating with several research groups within Faculty of Electrical Engineering (e.g., Laboratory of Biophysics, Laboratory of Artificial Perception, Systems, and Cybernetics, Laboratory for Bioelectromagnetics, Laboratory of Energy Policy) as well as with other reasearch institutions (e.g., Laboratory for Mathematical Methods in Computer and Information Science within Faculty of Computer and Information Science at University of Ljubljana, Institute of Mathematics, Physics and Mechanics, Jožef Stefan Institute ).

With the aim to transfer knowledge into practice the laboratory endeavors to cooperate with industry.
In the last few years, its members have been integrated into applied projects with companies Seaway Group, d. o. o., Uradni list RS, d. o. o., Peracto, d. o. o., and Etris, d. o. o.

The members of Laboratory of Applied Mathematics are also involved in popularizing math among young people and the organization of mathematical competitions (International Mathematical Olympiad, International Mathematical Kangaroo, Entertainment Mathematics, Logic).
