This conference is intended as the 13th issue of a
conference series
held in Prague since 2007.
It is is primarily
organised in honour of Miloslav Znojil's 70th birthday in the year 2016.
The theme (analytic and algebraic methods in physics)
naturally reflects the wide scope of interests of Miloslav
throughout his extremely productive research career.
The following topics will be particularly addressed
during the conference:
 quantum mechanics with nonHermitian operators,
 PTsymmetric optics and generalised concepts,
 spectral theory of nonselfadjoint operators,
 operator theory in spaces with indefinite inner products.
