Mgr. Jan Hladký, Ph.D.
Laureate of the Neuron Prize 2021 for promising young scientists in the field of mathematics
For innovative application of continuous methods in graph theory
Jan Hladký is one of the talented mathematicians of his generation. In his work, he uses the methods of continuous mathematics to solve discrete problems. Among his most significant outcomes is solving the approximate version of Ringel’s tree packing conjecture from 1963 and the conjecture of Loebl, Komlós a Sós from 1995. After his doctorates at the University of Warwick and Charles University, Jan Hladký worked at the University of Warwick, Technische Universität Dresden and the Mathematical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences. He currently leads a group at the Institute of Informatics of Czech Academy of Sciences within the EXPRO grant of the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic.
