Krakow has a very long academic tradition in all sciences including mathematics.
The first university in Poland (Jagiellonian University) was established here in 1364. The Chair of Astronomy and Mathematics was founded in 1402 and one of its most prominent students was Nicholaus Copernicus.
The mathematics in Krakow is well recognised and has its icons:
in the 20th century two young talents S. Banach and O. Nikodym had started their careers here. The complex analysis group has also well established tradition in our city.
