Style of locators - differences in triangulation
Loits, André ; Drdácký, Tomáš ; Buzek, Jaroslav ; Zadražil, Tomáš
The vast majority of contemporary European cities have their origins in the Middle Ages. ln our territory, most towns were founded from the beginning of the 12th century to the middle of the 14th century during the reign of the last Přemyslids. Urban city layouts are original, and although it is difficult to visually compare them at first glance, their apparent diversity shows certain rules and systems. This finding was verified by an analysis of 29 Czech and Moravian cities. The paper presents the results of the analysis of selected cities. The locator, commissioned by the then investor to organize the settlement of the new location, played a crucial role in the founding of the towns. Due to the number and close sequence of founded cities, it is probable that the cities were measured by experienced surveyors, with theoretical and practical knowledge of geometry. The complexity of the task, as well as the proven fact that a large number of cities have emerged over several decades, leads to the conclusion that there was a proven, somewhat routine approach to the site, which ensured certainty in the survey and the birth of a functioning city. The paper presents identified types of procedures for surveying the city layout in two modes of triangulation and corresponding four systems of initial base stations, from which the city and its boarder was delineated. The work loosely follows the text Triangulated medieval cities, published at the conference Architecture in Perspective in 2017 and summarizes the results of four years of research work.
Triangulated medieval cities
Loits, André ; Drdácký, Tomáš ; Buzek, Jaroslav ; Zadražil, Tomáš
The paper presents a long term research work addressing sometimes not so evident values of historic cities, which are linked with geometric (urban) relations between the architectural elements set in cities. the position of city boundary (walls), market place and street layout was an intentional concept, not a result of unorganized building activities of new colonists. It is known from the archive and historic data, and verified by archaeological findings that the founded cities were planned. It is evident that cities seemingly different are organized following certain rules and methods. The work supports the hypothesis that original concept of the city survived in its pattern and structure until today and is one of the values expressing its individual and original identity. Hypothetic Medieval triangulation method, developed by André Loits is presented on case studies of České Budějovice, Kadaň and Klatovy. The method was so far used for the analysis of 30 selected Town Heritage Reserves and Zones and identifies two basi 'schools' in location concepts of studied cities.
Roulette and its strategies
Zadražil, Tomáš ; Staněk, Jakub (advisor) ; Slavík, Antonín (referee)
Objective of this thesis is to describe history of gambling, in a context of roulette to explain basic and advanced parts of probability theory which allow to the reader to decide about function of several popular roulette systems. There was mainly used expected value of discrete random variable, homogenous discrete-time Markov chain and simulations made in programming language R. Concrete output of the thesis are in precisely calculated expected values of a profit with fixed spins and with chosen limitation and corresponding estimations provided by simulation. On the basis of that it's possible to decide which systems are functional and which are not. Main contribution of this text is in didactical approach which helps to describe popular problematics of roulette systems by using basic and advanced areas of probability theory.
Methods for solving differential equations
Zadražil, Tomáš ; Staněk, Jakub (advisor) ; Slavík, Antonín (referee)
The goal of this work is to introduce some elementary methods of solving ordinary differential equations to the reader. These methods are then exemplified by means of using solved samples and particular illustrations from practice. The text intends to be friendly to an inexpert user, therefore it prefers verbal expressions to accumulation of mathematic expressions. The target groups are university students and secondary school teachers who teach optional seminars of mathematic. The knowledge of derivatives, definite and indefinite integrals is required to understand this text. Powered by TCPDF (

Tato práce se zabývá problematikou přístupnosti webových stránek. Cílem je vyhodnocení webů informatických kateder v ČR z hlediska jejich přístupnosti Za tímto účelem je vytvořena komplexní metodika a otestována při vyhodnocování tří těchto webů. První kapitola práce obsahuje úvod do problematiky přístupnosti. Je zde vysvětleno, co tento pojem znamená, pro koho má význam a jaké výhody přístupnost přináší majitelům webových stránek. Kapitola je zakončena popisem zákonné úpravy přístupnosti webových stránek ve Spojených státech, v Evropské unii a v České republice. Druhá kapitola obsahuje základní informace o čtyřech sadách doporučení pro tvorbu přístupných webových stránek, včetně stručného znění těchto metodik. Ve třetí kapitole je uveden vlastní postup při vyhodnocování webových stránek. Čtvrtá kapitola obsahuje popis hodnocených stránek jednotlivé analýzy a výsledky testování, případně s doporučenými opravami.
