The three volumes of the WDS Proceedings you just obtained are composed of the contributions which have been presented during the 13th Annual Conference of Doctoral Students. This international conference was held traditionally in Prague, at Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics from June 15 to June 18, 2004.

The contributions were divided into different symposia in accordance with their topics and consisted of both invited lectures of professors and shorter contributions, which were presented as oral contributions or posters by doctoral students. The number of presentations reached 202 in this year and 112 of them have been accepted for a publication in the Proceedings. We can note that the relationship between presentations and published papers is increasing.

Proceedings are divided into three volumes. Part I presents the contributions on Mathematics (26) and Computer Sciences (12, together 38 papers in this part). The contributions from the field of Physics of Plasmas and Ionized Media are the main topics of Part II (33 papers have been submitted from this symposium). Part III consists of contributions from all other symposia on Physics (41 papers). We believe that all student's contributions in these volumes have been refereed by the supervisor. I would like to thank all the supervisors for their fruitful comments. Moreover, in this year, all manuscripts were reviewed by two independent referees: one specialist and one doctoral student, both appointed by the student's supervisor or selected by the particular session chairman. All manuscripts have been accepted for publication after minor, moderate, and maybe major revisions. I would like to thank the referees from different institutions who worked so hard to review the student's papers, and thus permitted the timely production of these volumes. Particular thanks are addressed to those students who carefully read the papers of their colleagues.

We would like to note that the Proceedings contain the contributions of students who have just started their postgraduate study as well as contributions of students who are about to finish their degree and thus the scientific level of contributions can differ accordingly.

Finally, I would like to express my thanks to all speakers and other participants for helping us to keep a fruitful and friendly atmosphere during the whole meeting and, last but not least, to J. Pavlů and other our colleagues who assisted me greatly both prior to the conference and after it.

Pleasant reading
