Their area of study was primarily classical analysis, differential equations and analytic functions.

The Kraków School of Differential Equations was founded by Tadeusz Ważewski, a student of Stanisław Zaremba, and was internationally appreciated after World War II. The Kraków School of Analytic Functions was founded by Franciszek Leja. Other notable members includes Kazimierz Żorawski, Władysław Ślebodziński, Stanisław Gołąb, Ewa Grabska and Czesław Olech.
