Determinants of Non-Performing Loans in Eurozone and Non-Eurozone Countries
Rruga, Alisa ; Teplý, Petr (advisor) ; Novák, Jiří (referee)
This paper represents an empirical analysis of the determinants of Non- performing loans in Eurozone and Non- Eurozone countries. We contribute to the literature by including a comprehensive literature review and examining a large sample of annual data on 534 banks from both euro and non- euro member countries during the time period from 2012 to 2017. The timeline taken into study includes also the period of zero and negative rates in EU. By applying System GMM methodology, we find the empirical evidence to draw the conclusions regarding our four hypotheses as it follows. First, a better loan quality is found to be in Eurozone countries compared to the Non-Eurozone countries. We found out that both macroeconomic and bank related variables significantly impact the levels of NPLs. Second, the bank size resulted to have a non significant impact on loan quality during the studied period. Third, we considered also three industry related variables which also resulted to not have any impact in the fluctuations of bad loans. Finally, we show that the prolonged period of low interest rates has shaped the expectations for the future and has changed the slope of the yield curve thus significantly impacting the quality of loans.

When two do the same, it is not the same: cost of equity estimation techniques used by valuation experts
Kolouchová, Petra ; Novák, Jiří (advisor) ; Mejstřík, Michal (referee)
Cost of equity is crucial information that enters business valuation. Yet, even after decades of academic research, consensus has not been reached regarding the appropriate cost of equity estimation. The aim of our thesis is to investigate the cost of equity estimation in practice. In other words, we aim to provide data on the popularity of individual cost of equity models and evidence on what techniques are used for the estimation of parameters entering the models. For this purpose, we use a specifically developed program and obtain a unique dataset of cost of equity values, estimation methods and parameters used by valuation experts in the Czech Republic in the period between 1997 and 2009. Our findings suggest that the most popular model for cost of equity estimation is CAPM, which is followed by the heuristic build up model. In the case of CAPM, risk premiums for unsystematic risks are often applied. Such premiums depend to large extent on expert's own experience and as such are rather qualitative in nature. Overall, in most points of the analysis, our results are consistent with previous, survey-based research on the US and the Western European data.
Performative Aspects in the Works of the Novi Sad Neo-Avant-Garde in 1960's and 1970's
Novák, Jiří ; Mikušiak, Igor (advisor) ; Otčenášek, Jaroslav (referee)
(in English): This bachelor thesis deals with the topic of constitution and artistic initiative of the so-called Novi Sad Neo-avantgarde generation in the 1960s and 1970s and emphasizes the performativeness of their activities. Vojvodina, with its tradition of multiculturalism and its centre in Novi Sad, same as the international socio-political climate of the 1960s created an environment for the art and social expression of the new generation of artists who stood out against the prevailing modernist discourse in culture and the bureaucratization and institutionalization of cultural activities of that time. The most radical demands for the democratization of culture culminated between years 1968-1972 and came from the cultural and artistic circles in Novi Sad, which were formed mainly around the cultural centre "Tribina mladih" and the literary magazines "Polja" and Hungarian-language "Új Symposion". Based on primary and secondary sources, the thesis analyses and summarizes the basic research and perception of this period and the specifics of individual artistic expressions of this so-called "Other Line".
On the Utilization of Machine Learning in Asset Return Prediction on Limited Datasets
Petrásek, Lukáš ; Baruník, Jozef (advisor) ; Novák, Jiří (referee)
In this thesis, we conduct a comparative analysis of how various modern ma- chine learning techniques perform when employed to asset return prediction on a relatively small sample. We consider a broad selection of machine learn- ing methods, including e.g. elastic nets, random forests or recently highly popularized neural networks. We find that these methods fail to outperform a simple linear model containing only 5 factors and estimated via ordinary least squares. Our conclusion is that applications of machine learning in fi- nance should be conducted carefully, because the techniques may not actually be as powerful as one might think when they are applied under unfavorable circumstances.

Baltic Stock Market Integration
Stulga, Šarūnas ; Kočenda, Evžen (advisor) ; Novák, Jiří (referee)
1 Abstract In this thesis, we present an empirical analysis of integration between the Baltic and global stock markets during the period between 2000 and 2018. This research is spurred by the fact that all three Baltic countries displaying similar positive economic developments over the studied horizon. Using the theoretical and empirical findings from similar research papers, we ground our work for the analysis. Our methodology is based on three different models: DCC-GARCH, total and frequency connectedness, and the Engle-Granger cointegration test. Using these methods, we are able to determine both short- or long-term relationship dynamics. Based on the results from our empirical analysis we were not able to reject the null hypotheses, that the Baltic states have become more integrated between themselves and the global market. At best, our results would suggest a weak form of integration given that there were indeed some notable dynamic changes. Following these results, we provide insight on interdependencies between the Baltic states and their relationships with the global stock markets. Most notable dynamics are captured by the total connectedness measure, which indicates that the Baltic stock markets show a significantly increased connectedness with the global indices, during turbulent times in the...
Development of Game Application for PC in Unity Environment
The main goal of this project is to create an application in form of a PC game. The project focuses on game engine Unity and programming language called "C sharp". Using game engine is a simpler way of coding games for multiplatform environment. It implements commonly used game functions that take care of basic game objects behaviour. Game of this project is 2D and uses sprites for graphics and animations. In this case technique called Pixel art is used. Genre of this game is a platformer slightly leaning to "Metroidvania". A player character can move vertically with the option to jump horizontally. Environment contains traps and enemies which the player tries to avoid or eliminate. During the game progress can player reach different bonuses and score points. The game includes multiple levels with different enemies and difficulties.
Stability and control of dynamical systems used in modeling an airplane motion
Novák, Jiří ; Šremr, Jiří (referee) ; Nechvátal, Luděk (advisor)
A modern aircraft (or another machine moving in the air) usually does not rely on its structural stability only. In fact, the motion is conventionally stabilized using a loop feedback control. A dynamical system, which models the aircraft's position and orientation in time, reacts on the state variables, hence, the control signal is dynamically changed. This bachelor's thesis deals with deriving the equations of motion for small perturbations of the state variables as well as with stability and control of such a system of equations. In addition, comparison of both a nonlinear and a linearized model is a part of this work. The programming language Python is used for testing on several examples of a concrete aircraft.
