Institute of Mathematics employs 50 scientists (including 6 full professors). Main scientific interests: real functions theory, algebra, geometry, topology, differential equations theory, probability theory, didactics of mathematics.
Institute of Informatics employs 30 scientists (including 2 full professors). Main scientific interests: combinatorics, graphs and computational geometry, scattered programing, quantum information.
Institute of Experimental Physics employs permanently 19 researchers, (6 are full professors). Main areas of interest are: atomic spectroscopy, molecular spectroscopy, solid state physics, physics of collisions, bio- and biomedical physics, quantum interferometry, acoustics.
Institute of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics employs 15 scientists (6 full professors). It is a renowned center for quantum information theory and related topics. Other scientific interests: mathematical physics, atomic and molecular physics, computational physics. Papers produced in the Institute in the last 20 years have over 1700 citations a year. The Institute’s Hirsch index 53. These successes led to the establishment of the National Centre for Quantum Information (http://www.kcik.ug.edu.pl) in Gdańsk in 2007. The total value of current grants of the Institute is approx. USD 6 000 000. This includes a European Research Council Advanced Grant.
