Functional changes of Vltava riverbanks in Prague
Brabec, Jiří ; Fialová, Dana (advisor) ; Šantrůčková, Markéta (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the functional changes of the banks of the Vltava river in the territory of today's Capital City of Prague. There have been significant changes in the functional use of this area due to large interventions in the bank line and the redevelopment of the embankment. During last 150 years changes are closely monitored. Changes were also made conditional on connecting nearby rural communities to Prague. Theoretical bases are the concepts of shore-side changes in urbanized areas, complemented by examples from the world that serve as a comparative study. Furthermore, the thesis is based on the theory of photography and the iconographic approach, which are essential for this work. The methodology of the thesis is based on the analysis of historical and contemporary photographs and information, on field research and vectorization of historical maps, where the course of the flow is monitored in four time periods (the mid-19th century until present). The work captures functional changes of banks in text form, as images and fundamental changes in tables. Part of the work is also a web application, where the changes in cartographic, picture and text form are again accessible to the public. Key words Vltava river, Prague, riverbank, waterfront
Tradition and Country in the Czech interwar literature
Holeček, Lukáš ; Wiendl, Jan (advisor) ; Brabec, Jiří (referee) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
The submitted thesis focuses on traditionalist conceptions in the Czech interwar literature. In the First Chapter were considered some literary theories, mainly distinctions between continuity and discontinuity in literary history (modernism and anti-modernism). Author consider tradition in the dialogue with the hermeneutic theories (mainly Hans-Georg Gadamer, Paul Ricoeur and New Historicism) regarding tradition as a problem of historical meaning opposite sociological conception of tradition. Tradition suggests interdependence of anti-modern and modern art. The Second Chapter focuses on the polemic about tradition around 1928. Polemics about tradition related with discussions about philosophical sense of the Czech history, revision state and national traditions and also with the traditional character of literature. Further chapter consider tradition in the context of rural literature (ruralismus) and rural novel published in rural library Hlasy země (conception and varieties of time in novels - progress, ancestral continuity, eternity). In this contemporary negotiations over rural themes had an important role regional literature (regionalismus) as a specific variant of the rural novels. On the basis of theoretical disputes and reviews of reception of the French regionalism (Giono, Ramuz, Pourrat)...
Collected Works of Jan Patočka as an Editorial Problem
Petruželková, Adéla ; Špirit, Michael (advisor) ; Brabec, Jiří (referee) ; Kosák, Michal (referee)
The dissertation thesis Collected Works of Jan Patočka as an Editorial Problem deals with both the samizdat and the printed versions of the collected works of Czech philosopher Jan Patočka (1907 - 1977) and other domestic as well as foreign editions of his work. The Archival Collection of Jan Patočka's Work emerged as the side product, to some extent uncoordinated and intuitive, of the sorting of the author's legacy in the years 1977 - 1989. Nevertheless, the 27 volumes of this unpublished edition represent a fully-fledged attempt to organize a critical edition of Patočka's collected works. At the end of the 1980's, an exile edition was intended, as the outcome of the cooperation of domestic, exiled and foreign community of researchers. The post-revolution Collected Works of Jan Patočka have been published since 1996 and, contrary to the previous series, represent a re-arranged and amended edition. The paper follows the process of scientific reflection, which has accompanied the edition of Patočka's works (both edition series were assembled by the same editorial team of Patočka's disciples.) We describe the use of thematic, chronological and other criteria in the course of the organization of the collected works, the transformation and scope of editorial commentaries, especially when dealing with the areas...
The captain of his generation? Zdenek Kalista and the Young Czech Literature in 1919 - 1924
Malínek, Vojtěch ; Wiendl, Jan (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee) ; Brabec, Jiří (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to present the literary activities of Zdenek Kalista in 1919- 1924, a period which saw him becoming one of the most prominent figures of the young post- war generation of writers. The research has been primarily based on materials that had been so far ignored or insufficiently reflected (literary remains of Zdenek Kalista, Antonin Matej Pisa, Cestmir Jerabek, Lev Blatny, Jiri Wolker etc., as well as articles from contemporary magazines and daily newspapers) together with Kalista's memoirs. The thesis is divided into five chronologically sorted parts, each reflecting one year of Kalista's life and work and relating them to the literary situation of that time, while continuously describing them from multiple perspectives. In the first part, Kalista's personal life and the activities of the youngest literary generation are analyzed. After that, the focus shifts to the contemporary art groups (Umelecky klub, Literarni skupina, partly Devetsil) and Kalista's relationship with his contemporaries and various key figures of the literary scene (Jiri Wolker, Antonin Matej Pisa, Frantisek Gotz, Stanislav Kostka Neumann etc.). Then, Kalista's activities in the respective years are analyzed, be it for his work in contemporary magazines (Den, Orfeus, Host), his books (collections of...

The Internet and copyright-the scope of liability of individual parties involved (webhosting, connections providers...) and modes of protection against piracy (identification and punishment of a pirate...).
Brabec, Jiří ; Císařová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Dobřichovský, Tomáš (referee)
Resume in English The topic of this thesis is "The internet and the copyright law - the scope of responsibilities of individual entities (webhosting providers, ISP) and ways to protect against piracy (the identification and prosecution of pirate)". The purpose of this text is primarily to explain the functioning of the BitTorrent protocol and demonstrate that the current legislation is fully able to provide means for the authors to defend their rights. Although there are certain limitations, but these arise mainly from the nature of internet itself rather than from the existing laws. Basically, the BitTorrent protocol provides the users the ability to create ad-hoc peer- to-peer networks, which then allow them to share certain files. It is a very effective way to distribute a large amount of data in a short time on the internet. This advantage, together with the fact that the users can act practically anonymously on the internet, lead to the increase of intellectual property infringements in the recent years, causing a lot of damage to the authors. Therefore, it is important to provide answers to the questions of liability of particular subjects, which take part in the file sharing using the BitTorrent protocol. These are the providers of webhosting, the providers of tracking services and the sharing users....
Parallel Implementation of Multireference Coupled Clusters Methods and Calculations on Large Systems
Brabec, Jiří ; Pittner, Jiří (advisor) ; Fišer, Jiří (referee) ; Pitoňák, Michal (referee)
Firstly, we have developed a Tensor Contraction Engine-based implementation of the BW-MRCCSD approach. The scalability tests have been performed across thousand of cores. We have further developed a novel two-level parallel algorithm for Hilbert-space MRCC methods which uses the processor groups. In this approach, references are distributed among processor groups (reference-level parallelism) and tasks of each reference are distributed inside of a given processor group (task-level parallelism). We have shown that our implementation scales across 24000 cores. The usability of our code was demonstrated on larger systems (dodecane, polycarbenes and naphthyne isomers). Finally, we present novel universal state- selective (USS) corrections to the state-specific MRCC methods. The USS-corrected MRCC results were compared with the full configuration interaction (FCI) results.
The Singlet-Triplet Gap in Trimethylenmethane and the Ring-Opening of Methylenecyclopropane: A Multireference Brillouin-Wigner Coupled Cluster Study
Brabec, Jiří
The Singlet−Triplet Gap in Trimethylenmethane and the Ring-Opening of Methylenecyclopropane: A Multireference Brillouin−Wigner Coupled Cluster Study Abstract We performed an ab initio study of the singlet−triplet gap in trimethylenmethane (TMM) and of the ring- opening of methylenecyclopropane by the multireference BWCC method. Since the singlet states of TMM and intermediates between TMM and methylenecyclopropane have a strong multiconfigurational character, it is necessary to use a multireference method. The cc-pVDZ and cc-pVTZ basis sets were used. We compared our results with experiments, where available, and with previous calculations performed by MCSCF and spin-flip coupled-cluster-type methods.
Permeation and implanting of political influence into the culture on the example of Czech publishing houses'activity in 1938-1949
Magincová, Dagmar ; Czumalo, Vladimír (advisor) ; Brabec, Jiří (referee) ; Štoll, Martin (referee)
of dissertation Dagmar Magincová The dissertation entitled Permeation and implanting of political influence into the culture on the example of Czech publishing houses'activity in 1938-1949 deals with the context of historically based politicisation of culture. It examines mutual relations between literary works, artefacts and political, social and cultural regulations, ideas and institutions in the sphere of publishing activities in Bohemia 1938-1949. The first part reflects the issue of power instruments used to influence culture; the second part conducts a survey of publishing activities from the aspect of individual subjects' attitudes in the transforming context of the time; the third part analyses particular ways how politics penetrates through culture, and the reflection in public discourse. Methodology of the study is based on the interdisciplinary basis of critical theory, which also implies the crucial issue of power forms transparency.
