RESEARCH

My research concentrates on the following topics:

Topological theory of discrete dynamical systems, low dimensional dynamical systems, chaos and entropy, symbolic dynamics (shift spaces), surface dynamics, ergodic theory, continuum theory.

My closest research team at AGH consists of PhD students and postdoctoral researchers funded from external projects. I also closely collaborate with several other mathematicians from AGH who are interested in broadly understood field of dynamical systems. Beyond this, I collaborate with colleagues from other departments, sharing my mathematical experience in various interdisciplinary teams.

During years I developed a large network of collaborators all over the world, from many different countries on all continents. This statement is confirmed by extensive list of collaborators of my papers. I am very happy that I was given a chance to collaborate with so many excellent mathematicians.

RESEARCH PROJECTS

Entropy, shadowing and attractors

Project studies structural properties of dynamical systems, that is structures obtained as long-term results of iterations of continuous functions. Our main analysis is focused on commonly accepted measures of complexity of structure of orbits (e.g. so-called entropy) and mathematical tools helping to decide if an object (e.g. visualized on computer screen) has complicated or simple structure (these tools are provided by branch of mathematics called topology). First, we will develop techniques allowing us to construct complicated objects with particualr properties. Very important tool in this matter will be (some versions) of shadowing property. Very roughly speaking, shadowing property ensures that results we draw on computer screen reflect real behaviour in the system under investigation. Project aims to provide very deep insight into mathematical aspects of dynamical complexity. To reach this aim, we will employ many different advanced mathematical techniques, that originated from topology and ergodic theory, using recent mathematical advances and open problems as starting point of our study.

Limit sets of discrete dynamical systems

LISEDIDYS

The proposed project aims to deepen our knowledge on limit sets which will provide a better understanding of the long term behavior of a discrete dynamical system. We will investigate the topological size and structure of basins of limit sets and study the properties of statistical limit sets and limit sets of backward trajectories. We will search for a criterion allowing to decide whether a given closed invariant set is a limit set of some backward trajectory. The focus will be on the low- dimensional dynamical systems such as interval maps, maps acting on the circle, graphs, dendrites, Cantor space. We will use methods and techniques from topological dynamics and ergodic theory, including combinatorial and symbolic dynamics, shadowing, specification property, invariant measures and generic points.

On recurrence and entropy in hyperspace of continua in dimension one

Domagoj Jelić and Piotr Oprocha
Preprint
About The Publication
We show that if G is a topological graph, and f is contin-
uous map, then the induced map f acting on the hyperspace C(G) of
all connected subsets of G by natural formula f (C) = f (C) carries the
same entropy as f . This is well known that it does not hold on the larger
hyperspace of all compact subsets. Also negative examples were given
for the hyperspace C(X) on some continua X, including dendrites.
Our work extends previous positive results obtained first for much
simpler case of compact interval by completely different tools.

Parametrized family of pseudo-arc attractors: physical measures and prime end rotations

Jernej Činč, Piotr Oprocha
Journal Paper
About The Publication
The main goal of this paper is to study topological and measure-theoretic properties of an intriguing family of strange planar attractors. Building towards these results, we first show that any generic Lebesgue measure preserving map f generates the pseudo-arc as inverse limit with f as a single bonding map. These maps can be realized as attractors of disc homeomorphisms in such a way that the attractors vary continuously (in Hausdorff distance on the disc) with the change of bonding map as a parameter. Furthermore, for generic Lebesgue measure preserving maps f the background Oxtoby-Ulam measures induced by Lebesgue measure for f on the interval are physical on the disc and in addition there is a dense set of maps f defining a unique physical measure. Moreover, the family of physical measures on the attractors varies continuously in the weak* topology; i.e. the parametrized family is statistically stable. We also find an arc in the generic Lebesgue measure preserving set of maps and construct a family of disk homeomorphisms parametrized by this arc which induces a continuously varying family of pseudo-arc attractors with prime ends rotation numbers varying continuously in [0,1/2]. It follows that there are infinitely many dynamically non-equivalent embeddings of the pseudo-arc in this family of attractors

Journal Paper
About The Publication
This paper deals with the solution of delay differential equations describing evolution of dislocation density in metallic materials. Hardening, restoration, and recrystallization characterizing the evolution of dislocation populations provide the essential equation of the model. The last term trans- forms ordinary differential equation (ODE) into delay differential equation (DDE) with strong (in general, Hölder) nonlinearity. We prove upper error bounds for the explicit Euler method, under the assumption that the right- hand side function is Hölder continuous and monotone which allows us to com- pare accuracy of other numerical methods in our model (e.g. Runge-Kutta), in particular when explicit formulas for solutions are not known. Finally, we test the above results in simulations of real industrial process.

Journal Paper
About The Publication
We show that for the generic continuous maps of the interval and circle which preserve the Lebesgue measure it holds for each k 1 that the set of periodic points of period k is a Cantor set of Hausdorff dimension zero and of upper box dimension one. Furthermore, building on this result, we show that there is a dense collection of transitive Lebesgue measure preserving interval map whose periodic points have full Lebesgue measure and whose periodic points of period k have positive measure for each k 1. Finally, we show that the generic continuous maps of the interval which preserve the Lebesgue measure satisfy the shadowing and periodic shadowing property.

Journal Paper
About The Publication
Enhancing strength-ductility synergy of materials has been for decades an objective of research on structural metallic materials. It has been shown by many researchers that significant improvement of this synergy can be obtained by tailoring heterogeneous multiphase microstructures. Since large gradients of properties in these microstructures cause a decrease of the local fracture resistance, the objective of research is to obtain smoother gradients of properties by control of the manufacturing process. Advanced material models are needed to design such microstructures with smooth gradients. These models should supply information about distributions of various microstructural features, instead of their average values. Models based on stochastic internal variables meet this requirement. Our objective was to account for the random character of the recrystallization and to transfer this randomness into equations describing the evolution of dislocations and grain size during hot deformation and during interpass times. The idea of this stochastic model is described in the paper. Experiments composed of uniaxial compression tests were performed to supply data for the identification and verification of the model in the hot deformation and static recrystallization parts. Histograms of the grain size were measured after hot deformation and at different times after the end of deformation. Identification and validation of the model were performed. The validated model, which predicts evolution of heterogeneous multiphase microstructure, is the main output of our work. The model was implemented in the finite element program for hot rolling of plates and sheets and simulations of these processes were performed. The model’s capability to compare and evaluate various rolling strategies are demonstrated in the paper.

About The Publication
Construction metallic materials combine strength with formability. These features are obtained for heterogeneous microstructures with hard constituents dispersed in a soft matrix. On the other hand, sharp gradients of properties between phases cause a local fracture. Advanced models are needed to design microstructures with smoother gradients of their features. Models based on stochastic internal variables meet this requirement. Our objective was to account for the random character of the recrystallization and to transfer this randomness to equations describing the evolution of dislocations and grain size. The idea of the internal variable model with dislocation density and grain size being stochastic variables is described in the paper. Experiments composed of uniaxial compression tests were performed to supply data for the identification and verification of the model. The loads as a function of time during compression and histograms of the grain size after deformation were measured in each test. Identification and validation of the model were performed. Finally, the developed model was applied to simulate selected industrial hot forming processes.

New exotic minimal sets from pseudo-suspensions of Cantor systems

J. Boroński, A. Clark, P. Oprocha
Journal PaperPreprint
About The Publication
We develop a technique, pseudo-suspension, that applies to invariant sets of homeomorphisms of a class of annulus homeomorphisms we describe, Handel-Anosov-Katok (HAK) homeomorphisms, that generalize the homeomorphism first described by Handel. Given a HAK homeomorphism and a homeomorphism of the Cantor set, the pseudo-suspension yields a homeomorphism of a new space that admits a homeomorphism that combines features of both of the original homeomorphisms. This allows us to answer a well known open question by providing examples of hereditarily indecomposable continua that admit homeomorphisms of intermediate complexity. Additionally, we show that such examples occur as minimal sets of volume preserving smooth diffeomorphisms of 4-dimensional manifolds. We also use our techniques to exhibit the first examples of minimal, uniformly rigid and weakly mixing homeomorphisms in dimension 1, and these can also be realized as invariant sets of smooth diffeomorphisms of a 4-manifold. Until now the only known examples of spaces that admit minimal, uniformly rigid and weakly mixing homeomorphisms were modifications of those given by Glasner and Maon in dimension at least 2.

Renormalization in Lorenz maps – completely invariant sets and periodic orbits

Ł. Cholewa, P. Oprocha
Preprint
About The Publication
The paper deals with dynamics of expanding Lorenz maps, which appear in a natural way as Poincar\`e maps in geometric models of well-known Lorenz attractor. We study connections between periodic points, completely invariant sets and renormalizations. We show that in general, renormalization cannot be fully characterized by a completely invariant set, however there are various situations when such characterization is possible. This way we provide a better insight into the structure of renormalizations in Lorenz maps, correcting some gaps existing in the literature and completing to some extent the description of possible dynamics in this important field of study.

Multiorders in amenable group actions

Tomasz Downarowicz, Piotr Oprocha, Mateusz Więcek, Guohua Zhang
Journal PaperPreprint
About The Publication
The paper offers a thorough study of multiorders and their applications to measure-preserving actions of countable amenable groups. By a multiorder on a countable group we mean any probability measure ν on the collection O of linear orders of type Z on G, invariant under the natural action of G on such orders. Every free measure-preserving G-action (X,μ,G) has a multiorder (O,ν,G) as a factor and has the same orbits as the Z-action (X,μ,S), where S is the successor map determined by the multiorder factor. The sub-sigma-algebra ΣO associated with the multiorder factor is invariant under S, which makes the corresponding Z-action (O,ν,S) a factor of (X,μ,S). We prove that the entropy of any G-process generated by a finite partition of X, conditional with respect to ΣO, is preserved by the orbit equivalence with (X,μ,S). Furthermore, this entropy can be computed in terms of the so-called random past, by a formula analogous to the one known for Z-actions. This fact is applied to prove a variant of a result by Rudolph and Weiss. The original theorem states that orbit equivalence between free actions of countable amenable groups preserves conditional entropy with respect to a sub-sigma-algebra Σ, as soon as the “orbit change” is Σ-measurable. In our variant, we replace the measurability assumption by a simpler one: Σ should be invariant under both actions and the actions on the resulting factor should be free. In conclusion we prove that the Pinsker sigma-algebra of any G-process can be identified (with probability 1) using the following algorithm: (1) fix an arbitrary multiorder on G, (2) select any order from the support of that multiorder, (3) in the process, find the “remote past” along the selected order

Quasi-graphs, zero entropy and measures with discrete spectrum

J. Li, P. Oprocha, G. Zhang
Journal Paper
About The Publication
In this paper, we study dynamics of maps on quasi-graphs characterizing their invariant measures. In particular, we prove that every invariant measure of quasi-graph map with zero topological entropy has discrete spectrum. Additionally, we obtain an analog of Llibre-Misiurewicz’s result relating positive topological entropy with existence of topological horseshoes. We also study dynamics on dendrites and show that if a continuous map on a dendrite, whose set of all endpoints is closed and has only finitely many accumulation points, has zero topological entropy, then every invariant measure supported on an orbit closure has discrete spectrum.

On the structure of alpha-limit sets of backward trajectories for graph maps

M. Foryś-Krawiec, J. Hantáková, P. Oprocha
Journal Paper
About The Publication
In the paper we study what sets can be obtained as α-limit sets of backward trajectories in graph maps. We show that in the case of mixing maps, all those α-limit sets are ω-limit sets and for all but finitely many points x, we can obtain every ω-limits set as the α-limit set of a backward trajectory starting in x. For zero entropy maps, every α-limit set of a backward trajectory is a minimal set. In the case of maps with positive entropy, we obtain a partial characterization which is very close to complete picture of the possible situations.

We show that graph map with zero topological entropy is Li-Yorke chaotic if and only if it has an NS-pair (a pair of non-separable points containing in a same solenoidal ω-limit set), and a non-diagonal pair is an NS-pair if and only if it is an IN-pair if and only if it is an IT-pair. This completes characterization of zero topological sequence entropy for graph maps.

The aim of this paper is to show that alpha-limit sets in Lorenz maps do not have to be completely invariant. This highlights unexpected dynamical behavior in these maps, showing gaps existing in the literature. Similar result is obtained for unimodal maps on [0,1]. On the basis of provided examples, we also present how closely performed study on the structure of alpha-limit sets is connected with calculation of the topological entropy.

In this article we show that R.H. Bing’s pseudo-circle admits a minimal non-invertible map. This resolves a conjecture raised by Bruin, Kolyada and Snoha in the negative. The main tool is a variant of the Denjoy–Rees technique, further developed by Béguin–Crovisier–Le Roux, combined with detailed study of the structure of the pseudo-circle. This is the first example of a planar 1-dimensional space that admits both minimal homeomorphisms and minimal noninvertible maps.

We study the properties of Φ-irregular sets (sets of points for which the Birkhoff average diverges) in dynamical systems with the shadowing property. We estimate the topological entropy of Φ-irregular set in terms of entropy on chain recurrent classes and prove that Φ-irregular sets of full entropy are typical. We also consider Φ-level sets (sets of points whose Birkhoff average is in a specified interval), relating entropy they carry with the entropy of some ergodic measures. Finally, we study the problem of large deviations considering the level sets with respect to reference measures.

Shadowing is generic on various one-dimensional continua with a special geometric structure

P. Kościelniak, M. Mazur, P. Oprocha, Ł. Kubica
Journal Paper
About The Publication
In the paper we use a special geometric structure of selected one-dimensional continua to prove that some stronger versions of the shadowing property are generic (or at least dense) for continuous maps acting on these spaces. Specifically, we prove that (i) the periodic 𝒯𝑆-bi-shadowing property, where 𝒯𝑆 means some class of continuous methods, is generic as well as the s-limit shadowing property is dense in the space of all continuous maps (and all continuous surjective maps) of any topological graph; (ii) the 𝒯𝑆-bi-shadowing property is generic as well as the s-limit shadowing property is dense in the space of all continuous maps of any dendrite; (iii) the 𝒯𝑆-bi-shadowing property is generic in the space of all continuous maps of chainable continuum that can by approximated by arcs from the inside. The results of the paper extend ones obtained over the last few decades by various authors (see, e.g., Kościelniak in J Math Anal Appl 310:188–196, 2005; Kościelniak and Mazur in J Differ Equ Appl 16:667–674, 2010; Kościelniak et al. in Discret Contin Dyn Syst 34:3591–3609, 2014; Mazur and Oprocha in J Math Anal Appl 408:465–475, 2013; Mizera in Generic Properties of One-Dimensional Dynamical Systems, Ergodic Theory and Related Topics, III, Springer, Berlin, 1992; Odani in Proc Am Math Soc 110:281–284, 1990; Pilyugin and Plamenevskaya in Topol Appl 97:253–266, 1999; and Yano in J Fac Sci Univ Tokyo Sect IA Math 34:51–55, 1987) for both homeomorphisms and continuous maps of compact manifolds, including (in particular) an interval and a circle, which are the simplest examples of one-dimensional continua. Moreover, from a technical point of view our considerations are a continuation of those carried out in the earlier work by Mazur and Oprocha in J. Math. Anal. Appl. 408:465–475, 2013.

It is known that ∆-(1, 2) transitivity implies weak mixing. We will show that, though (a, b)-transitivity implies total transitivity for all a,b∈N, for a general vector a∈Nr, r ∈ N, ∆-a transitivity implies weak mixing if and only if the vector a satisfies certain conditions. Furthermore, we prove that this difference will disappear for measurable systems, that is, for measure-theoretical setting multi-ergodicity is equivalent to weak mixing.

Mixing properties in expanding Lorenz maps

P. Oprocha, P. Potorski, P. Raith
Journal PaperRepresentative publications
About The Publication
Let $T:[0,1]\to [0,1]$ be an expanding Lorenz map, this means $T x=f(x) \mod 1$ where $f: [0,1]\to [0,2]$ is a strictly increasing map satisfying $\inf f’>1$. Then $T$ has two pieces of monotonicity. In this paper, sufficient conditions when $\T$ is topologically mixing are provided. For the special case $f(x)=\beta x +\alpha$ with $\beta\geq \sqrt[3]{2}$ a full characterization of parameters $(\beta,\alpha)$ leading to mixing is given. Furthermore relations between renormalizability and $T$ being locally eventually onto are considered, and some gaps in classical results on the dynamics of Lorenz maps are corrected.

Conference proceedings
About The Publication
We show that topological mixing, weak mixing, the strong property P, and total transitivity are equivalent for coded systems (shift spaces presented by labeling the edges of a countable irreducible graphs by symbols from a finite alphabet). We provide an example of a topologically mixing coded system which cannot be approximated by any increasing sequence of topologically mixing shifts of finite type, has only periodic points of even period and each set of its generators consists of blocks of even length. We prove that such an example cannot be a synchronized system.

On the dynamics of generic maps on the Cantor set

J. Kupka, P. Oprocha
Journal Paper
About The Publication
Recently Bernardes and Darji provided a very nice characterization of a residual set of maps of Cantor set in terms of covers of special type. Using their characterization, we provide a more direct description of this class. This way we are able to provide a further characterization of dynamical properties (e.g. shadowing properties, nullness) of maps in the class and further study of what features (e.g. prescribed minimal sets or the values of topological entropy) we can get by small perturbations of a given homeomorphism.

Multi-criteria optimization strategies for tree-structured production chains

P. Jarosz, J. Kusiak, S. Małecki, P. Morkisz, P. Oprocha, W. Piertucha and Ł. Sztangret
Journal Paper
About The Publication
The aim of this paper is presentation of some optimization strategies applicable in the optimization of multi-stage and multi-thread chain structures (linear and tree-structured acyclic graphs) with multiple intermediate goal functions. The inspirations for this type of analysis are production chains often seen in industrial plants. Production in these plants consists of sequences of multiple units connected linearly or in tree-structured graphs in which, at various production stages, intermediate quality criteria, related to the semi-products, may have to be considered. Optimization strategies as well as the results of their application for different hypothetical problems and the real metallurgical problem of lead production are presented.

Shadowing, asymptotic shadowing and s-limit shadowing

C. Good, P. Oprocha, M. Puljiz
Journal Paper
About The Publication
We study three notions of shadowing: classical shadowing, limit (or asymptotic) shadowing, and s-limit shadowing. We show that classical and s-limit shadowing coincide for tent maps and, more generally, for piecewise linear interval maps with constant slopes, and are further equivalent to the linking property introduced by Chen in 1991. We also construct a system which exhibits shadowing but not limit shadowing, and we study how shadowing properties transfer to maximal transitive subsystems and inverse limits (sometimes called natural extensions). Where practicable, we show that our results are best possible by means of examples.

Double minimality, entropy and disjointness with all minimal systems

P. Oprocha
Journal Paper
About The Publication
In this paper we propose a new sufficient condition for disjointness with all minimal systems. Using proposed approach we construct a transitive dynamical system (X,T) disjoint with every minimal system and such that the set of transfer times N(x,U) is not an IP-set for some nonempty open set UX and every xX. This example shows that the new condition sharpens sufficient conditions for disjointness below previous bounds. In particular our approach does not rely on distality of points or sets.

About The Publication
We prove that there exists a topologically mixing homeomorphism which is completely scrambled. We also prove that, for any integer n>0, there is a continuum of topological dimension n supporting a transitive completely scrambled homeomorphism and an n-dimensional compactum supporting a weakly mixing completely scrambled homeomorphism. This solves a 15-year-old open problem.

Journal Paper
About The Publication
Continuous development of the transport industry is associated with the search for new construction materials that combine high strength with good plastic properties. Intensive research during the last few decades has shown that there is still a huge potential for improvement of properties of various metallic materials. New grades called advanced high strength steels (AHSS) with multiphase structures have been developed and widely used mainly in the automotive industry. These microstructures are characterized by large gradients of properties, which cause poor local formability. It is expected that materials with a more heterogeneous microstructure will have superior formability. More detailed models of the microstructure evolution are needed to answer this question. A hypothesis was made that application of the models based on internal variables allows for predictions of gradients of final product properties. The objectives of the present paper were two-fold. The first was to investigate the possibility of the analytical and numerical solutions of the evolution equation for the internal variable and evaluation of these solutions. We propose two numerical methods which give us an accurate approximation of the solution with relatively low computational cost at the same time. Implementation of the developed solutions in the finite element (FE) code and performing multiscale simulation of the evolution of internal variables during thermomechanical processing was the second objective of this paper. This solution supplied information about the distribution of the dislocation density in the volume of the material. Case studies for selected metal forming processes recapitulate the paper.

A compact minimal space Y such that its square YxY is not minimal

J. Boroński, A. Clark, P. Oprocha
Journal PaperRepresentative publications
About The Publication
The following well known open problem is answered in the negative: Given two compact spaces X and Y that admit minimal homeomorphisms, must the Cartesian product admit a minimal homeomorphism as well? Moreover, it is shown that such spaces can be realized as minimal sets of torus homeomorphisms homotopic to the identity. A key element of our construction is an inverse limit approach inspired by combination of a technique of Aarts & Oversteegen and the construction of Slovak spaces by Downarowicz & Snoha & Tywoniuk. This approach allows us also to prove the following result. Let be a continuous, aperiodic minimal flow on the compact, finite-dimensional metric space M. Then there is a generic choice of parameters , such that the homeomorphism admits a noninvertible minimal map as an almost 1-1 extension

Y. Dong, P. Oprocha, X. Tian
Journal Paper
About The Publication
We prove that when f is a continuous self-map acting on a compact metric space (X, d) that satisfies the shadowing property, then the set of irregular points (i.e., points with divergent Birkhoff averages) has full entropy. Using this fact, we prove that, in the class of C-0-generic maps on manifolds, we can only observe (in the sense of Lebesgue measure) points with convergent Birkhoff averages. In particular, the time average of atomic measures along orbits of such points converges to some Sinai-Ruelle-Bowen-like measure in the weak* topology. Moreover, such points carry zero entropy. In contrast, irregular points are non-observable but carry infinite entropy.

Properties of invariant measures in dynamical systems with the shadowing property

J. Li, P. Oprocha
Journal Paper
About The Publication
For dynamical systems with the shadowing property, we provide a method of approximation of invariant measures by ergodic measures supported on odometers and their almost one-to-one extensions. For a topologically transitive system with the shadowing property, we show that ergodic measures supported on odometers are dense in the space of invariant measures, and then ergodic measures are generic in the space of invariant measures. We also show that for every and the collection of ergodic measures (supported on almost one-to-one extensions of odometers) with entropy between and is dense in the space of invariant measures with entropy at least . Moreover, if in addition the entropy function is upper semi-continuous, then, for every , ergodic measures with entropy are generic in the space of invariant measures with entropy at least c.

Journal Paper
About The Publication
The goal of the research is an attempt of optimization of the hydrometallurgy-based zinc production line, consisting of three stages: mixing of raw materials, oxidative roasting and leaching. The output product of one stage is an input to the next stage. Goal of mixing is preparation of zinc concentrates mix on the basis of zinc concentrates originated from different mines. The output semi-product of the next stage, the oxidative roasting process, is calcine, which is the input of the leaching. The result of the leaching is zinc sulfate solution and the goal of leaching is to carry out the maximum amount of zinc to solution. The preliminary step of any optimization is modeling of the analyzed processes. Modeling of considered three stages of zinc production line, based on the real industrial data of one of zinc production plants, was performed using different techniques. The elaborated models were the basis of the optimization for given objective functions of each of the production stages. The optimization methodology of multi-stage processes developed by the authors was applied. Obtained results of modeling and optimization are presented

On dynamics of graph maps with zero topological entropy

J. Li, P. Oprocha, Y. Yang, T. Zeng
Journal Paper
About The Publication
We explore the dynamics of graph maps with zero topological entropy. It is shown that a continuous map f on a topological graph G has zero topological entropy if and only if it is locally mean equicontinuous, that is the dynamics on each orbit closure is mean equicontinuous. As an application, we show that Sarnak’s Möbius disjointness conjecture is true for graph maps with zero topological entropy. We also extend several results known in interval dynamics to graph maps. We show that a graph map has zero topological entropy if and only if there is no 3-scrambled tuple if and only if the proximal relation is an equivalence relation; a graph map has no scrambled pairs if and only if it is null if and only if it is tame.

About The Publication
Different optimization strategies applied to sequence of several stages of production chains were validated in this paper. Two benchmark problems described by ordinary differential equations (ODEs) were considered. A water tank and a passive CR-RC filter were used as the exemplary objects described by the first and the second order differential equations, respectively. Considered in the work optimization problems serve as the validators of strategies elaborated by the Authors. However, the main goal of research is selection of the best strategy for optimization of two real metallurgical processes which will be investigated in an on-going projects. The first problem will be the oxidizing roasting process of zinc sulphide concentrate where the sulphur from the input concentrate should be eliminated and the minimal concentration of sulphide sulphur in the roasted products has to be achieved. Second problem will be the lead refining process consisting of three stages: roasting to the oxide, oxide reduction to metal and the oxidizing refining. Strategies, which appear the most effective in considered benchmark problems will be candidates for optimization of the mentioned above industrial processes.

The book presents surveys describing recent developments in most of the primary subfields of General Topology, and its applications to Algebra and Analysis during the last decade, following the previous editions (North Holland, 1992 and 2002). The book was prepared in connection with the Prague Topological Symposium, held in 2011. During the last 10 years the focus in General Topology changed and therefore the selection of topics differs from that chosen in 2002. The following areas experienced significant developments: Fractals, Coarse Geometry/Topology, Dimension Theory, Set Theoretic Topology and Dynamical Systems.
