Our mission

Juliusz P. Schauder Center for Nonlinear Studies was founded in 1991 at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. The center's mission is supporting mathematical research in the field of nonlinear analysis and its applications as well as intiating scientific relations between different research communities.

The current main activities are the following:

  • publishing a high class scientific journal TOPOLOGICAL METHODS IN NONLINEAR ANALYSIS,
  • awarding a J. P. Schauder medal for scientific achievements and contributios to nonlinear anaysis (including the appointment of a medal jury),
  • organizing lectures, conferences and scientific workshops devoted to nonlinear analysis in a wide sense,
  • publishing the LECTURE NOTES IN NONLINEAR ANALYSIS series,
  • supporting mathematically talented young people.

The center activities are supported by the Scientific Council appointed by Rector of Nicolaus Copernicus University for the time of three years.

News and Events


Tobias Weth - New Editor-in-Chief of TMNA

We would like to inform you of a recent change in editorial leadership of TMNA. Professor Jean Mawhin, who previously served as Editor-in-Chief, has resigned from the position. It is challenging to express our gratitude to Professor Mawhin for his many years of dedication and significant contributions to TMNA. We are convinced that thanks to Professor Mawhin, the past 20 years have been a prosperous time for our journal.

We are pleased to announce that Professor Tobias Weth from Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, has accepted the role of the new Editor-in-Chief of TMNA. His research interests and substantial scientific contributions include linear and nonlinear PDE, variational, topological, and geometric methods in nonlinear analysis, nonlocal operators and associated boundary value problems, local and nonlocal geometric variational problems, symmetry, and symmetry breaking of solutions to nonlinear boundary value problems.

We appreciate Professor Mawhin's contributions and welcome Professor Weth to the new role of Editor-in-Chief of our journal. We look forward to continued success under his guidance.

Winners of the second edition of the Schauder Prize competition

In the second edition of the competition for the Juliusz Schauder Prize for young mathematicians the Prize has been awrded to Bartosz Bieganowski (Warsaw University, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń) for achievements in studying variational methods and their applications to semilinear partial differential equations. Moreover, two distinctions have also been awarded: to Wojciech Górny (Universität Wien) and to Jakub Skrzeczkowski (Warsaw University). More information may be found at the Schauder Prize website.

Pre-registration to SNA2024 is open

We kindly announce that pre-registration for the VIII Symposium on Nonlinear Analysis is open. Please spread the word about the symposium to your mathematician friends.

VIII Symposium on Nonlinear Analysis

We cordially invite you to the VIII Symposium on Nonlinear Analysis, which will be held on June 17-21, 2024 in the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. It will be combined with the Juliusz Schauder Medal and the Juliusz Schauder Prize Awarding Ceremonies. For more information see the symposium website.

Schauder Winter School 2023

The Center organizes the Schauder Winter School on Geometric and Topological Methods in Dynamics of PDEs, February 13-15, 2023. It will be held at Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, ul. Chopina 12/18, Toruń, Poland.
