See an overview of my research projects:

*Relation between geometric representations and structural properties of graphs.*Given a geometrically represented graph, what structural knowledge can be derived from it? For instance, we show that symmetries of planar graphs can be understood.*Energy-aware computing and numerical linear algebra.*One of important problem for supercomputing is to make computations as efficient with respect to energy consumption as possible. Our study compared different methods for solving linear systems Ax=b from the point of energy consumption.*Scientific education and understanding of human mind.*We build a mathematical theory and computer tools to write down, understand and share structures in our mind. We are testing this approach in education of linear algebra at Charles University.
