Utilization of laser welding methods for fixation of electrotechnical sheet bundles
Adam, Tomáš ; Kubíček, Jaroslav (referee) ; Mrňa, Libor (advisor)
Thesis deals with individual technologies of packaging stator sheets and their use in practice. The greatest emphasis is placed on welding technologies, especially on the differences between the individual methods. The experimental part of the thesis is focused on finding suitable parameters for welding the stator package using a laser with a special wobling head. The samples were evaluated in terms of penetration depth, the number of defects, especially pores and grain coarsening.
Three essays on empirical Bayesian econometrics
Adam, Tomáš ; Komárek, Luboš (advisor) ; Feldkircher, Martin (referee) ; Herrala, Risto (referee) ; Melecký, Martin (referee)
The dissertation consists of three papers which apply Bayesian econometric techniques to monitoring macroeconomic and macro-financial developments in the economy. Its aim is to illustrate how Bayesian methods can be employed in standard areas of economic research (estimating systemic risk in the banking sectors, nowcasting GDP growth) and also in a more original area (monitoring developments in sovereign bond markets). In the first essay, we address a task which analytical departments in central banks or commercial banks face very often - nowcasting foreign demand of a small open economy. On the example of the Czech economy, we propose an approach to nowcast foreign GDP growth rates for the Czech economy. For presentation purposes, we focus on three major trading partners: Germany, Slovakia and France. We opt for a simple method which is very general and which has proved successful in the literature: the method based on bridge equation models. A battery of models is evaluated based on a pseudo-real- time forecasting exercise. The results for Germany and France suggest that the models are more successful at backcasting, nowcasting and forecasting than the naive random walk benchmark model. At the same time, the various models considered are more or less successful depending on the forecast horizon....
Manipulation through Evaluative Voting in the State Cinematography Fund
Pham, Petr ; Gregor, Martin (advisor) ; Adam, Tomáš (referee)
The goal of this thesis is to examine the use of evaluative voting in the Board of the Cinematography Fund, which is responsible for the public subsidies in the film industry. A dataset covering results of calls for support in the period of 2013-2017 is used. A logistic regression model is constructed to assess the probability to succeed in such a call. Potential extent of manipulation among members of the Board is analysed with game theoretic approach, where agents misreport their true preferences. The results of this thesis are in line with the literature on social choice theory and suggest a great susceptibility to exploitation in the committee.
Design and manufacture of an engraving LED laser
Adam, Tomáš ; Slaný, Martin (referee) ; Dvořák, Jaromír (advisor)
The thesis deals with the evaluation of achieved parameters of unconventional machining methods and their current use in practice. In addition, the design and construction of the prototype of the laser engraving device is carried out. Several tests are performed on the device and are compared with similar devices after evaluation. The entire construction is designed so that no special equipment is needed and the construction could be done in each workshop.
Generalized Nash Equilibrium Problems in Economics
Kratochvíl, Maxim ; Červinka, Michal (advisor) ; Adam, Tomáš (referee)
The aim of the thesis is to provide basic overview of term called Gener- alized Nash Equilibrium Problem (GNEP), mainly to the audience with economic education. Given term is the generalization of famous concept coming from Game theory called Nash Equilibrium Problem (NEP). Thesis describes basic properties of GNEP, illuminates main differences between NEP and GNEP and provides examples of both models. Thesis discuss hy- pothesis that there might exist economic models that could be advanced or solved by GNEP. One example of such economic model is presented to support given hypothesis. Keywords Generalized Nash Equilibrium Problems, abstract economy, social equilib- rium problem, pseudo-game, application.
Helicopter Drop of Money - Is It Feasible in Practice?
Gábrišová, Nela ; Holub, Tomáš (advisor) ; Adam, Tomáš (referee)
The main goal of this thesis is to discuss the famous Milton Friedman's concept of Helicopter Drop of Money in context of its applicability in the real world as a possible solution to liquidity trap. For better understanding, the thesis briefly de- scribes conduct of traditional and unconventional monetary policies. Key focus is put on describing assumptions necessary for the concept to yield desirable economic outcomes, and on detailed analysis of periods when zero lower bound on nominal interest rates is binding. Furthermore, roles of agents involved in execution of the concept, and important channels of transmission process are discussed from idealised theoretical view to real world possibilities of feasible execution. Additionally, prac- tical experience with direct cash distribution in Australia, and with quantitative easing programmes in Japan and the USA are explained. The last part analyses effects of increased monetary base on CPI inflation, money multiplier M2, and GDP in Japan and the USA using vector autoregression.

Modelling and comperative analysis of volatility spillover between US, Czech Republic and Serbian stock markets
Marković, Jelena ; Pečená, Magda (advisor) ; Adam, Tomáš (referee)
MASTER THESIS MODELLING AND COMPARATIVE ANALYZES OF VOLATILITY SPILLOVER BETWEEN US, CZECH REPUBLIC AND SERBIAN STOCK MARKETS Abstract This paper estimates Serbian, Czech and US stock markets volatility. Few studies analyzed stock market linkages for these three markets. The mean equation is estimated using the vector auto- regression model. The second moments is further estimated using different multivariate GARCH models. We find that current conditional volatilities for each stock is highly affected by the past innovations. Cross-market correlations are significant as well. However, there is a higher conditional correlation between Czech and US stock market indices compared to the conditional correlation between Serbian and US stock indices.
Understanding Information Asymmetries through Mechanism Design
Albert, Branislav ; Červinka, Michal (advisor) ; Adam, Tomáš (referee)
This thesis serves as an introduction and overview of the broad and closely related fields of mechanism design, contract theory, and information economics. Each chapter is intended to provide a self-contained guide to the particular area of application -- examples include adverse selection, moral hazard, and auctions. The reader should benefit from the thesis in two ways: by understanding the general notions of the revelation principle, incentive compatibility, and individual rationality from the mechanism design theory as well as by examining the particular information asymmetry models in the individual areas.
