All thematic groups described above have well documented scientific achievements showing promise for future research, as demonstrated by many papers published or accepted in renowned mathematical journals. The members of these groups have published over 800 scientific articles, most of them in international journals, and presented over 400 lectures and scientific talks at conferences in Poland and abroad.
