The bachelor's thesis "American reaction to French withdrawal from NATO military forces" deals with problematic decision of French president Charles de Gaulle from March 1966, when he decided to leave NATO military forces.

France was a key member and partner in NATO and the withdrawal might complicate the whole future of Alliance. However crisis might be difficult to deal with, American reaction was kind, tolerant and fully accepting new status quo decided by France.

Cleavage politics and Europeanisation-induced transformation of the national political space - the case of the Czech Republic
Stahl, Cosimo ; Vykoukal, Jiří (advisor) ; Cibulková, Petra (referee) ; Hanley, Seán (referee)
Bibliographic note STAHL, C. (2014): Cleavage Politics and Europeanisation-induced transformation of the national political space - The Case of the Czech Republic, 94 p. Master thesis, Charles University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Institute of International Studies. Supervisor: doc. PhDr. Jiří Vykoukal, CSc. Abstract This research seeks to map the national political space and assess the prevailing cleavage patterns in the Czech Republic. Processes of globalisation and Europeanisation have left their imprint in Western Europe - splitting the electorate into winners and losers of globalisation and denationalisation. This demarcation vs. integration magnet is also relevant in the CEE region - altering and reshuffling the underlying structure of party competition and EU contestation. By employing quantitative content analysis of print media the prevailing issue and cleavage dimensions will be reconstructed both during early stages of democratic transition (1996 Parliamentary elections) and after the 2004-EU-enlargement (2010 elections). While the political discourse and politics in the 1990s are primarily structured by issues of economic transition and post-communist transformation (underlying the classical socio-economic cleavage between market and state), in 2010 also cultural and post-materialist political...

Methods of analysing multivariate contingency tables
Šulc, Zdeněk ; Pecáková, Iva (advisor) ; Coufalová, Petra (referee)
This thesis occupies with a relationship of two significant methods of analyzing multivariate contingency tables, namely correspondence analysis and loglinear models. The thesis is divided into three parts. The first one is dedicated to basic terms of categorical data analysis, mainly to contingency tables and their distributions. Primarily, the emphasis is placed on their multidimensional form. The second part presents tools and techniques of both methods in a scope needed for their practical use and interpretation of their results. A practical application of both methods is included in the third part which is presented on the data from a market research. This part describes settings for both analyses in a statistical software SPSS and the subsequent interpretation of their outputs. A comparison of analyzed methods in terms of their use can be found in the conclusion.
Use of correspondence analysis in marketing
TONDLOVÁ, Kateřina
At first for my bachelor thesis was conducted my own marketing research, which was focused on mobile phones. Respondents filled the questionnaire, which was previously created for this purpose. With this marketing research, I received information about what people expect from mobile phones, according to what type of the mobile phones are bought, how much money on mobile services and mobile devices are spent, which mobile operators are using and much more. Individual users of mobile phones were placed into groups either by age, occupation, income or any other character. Then I tried using correspondence analysis to determine whether there is any relationship between these groups and other features, such as how much money pay per call, what they expect from mobile phones, which operator they have, which brand of mobile phone are using, etc. With correspondence analysis, I have investigated the mutual dependence of the results, which were obtained in my own marketing research. Based on the results of correspondence analysis, I was able to recommend to mobile operators and manufacturers of mobile phones, on which user groups should focus on. Mobile phone manufacturers will be able, thanks to the recommendation, to improve the features and functionality of its products strictly according to customer requirements and might even increase sales of their products. When would be the mobile operators focus on those target groups that are based on the results of my work for them the key, they could then create a better and cheaper fares for these target groups. This could get affection of such groups and thus gain new users for its mobile network. When would these manufacturers and mobile operators to preserve in my recommendation, they could also save costs of mobile users for mobile services due to cheaper and better fares. Furthermore, the mobile phones should have their exact functions and features, which are required from them. This would be on the market of mobile phones and service satisfaction on both the supply and demand.
Correspondence analysis application in MS Excel program
Ganajová, Michaela ; Řezanková, Hana (advisor) ; Pecáková, Iva (referee)
The aim of the diploma thesis was to create independently an application, automating a correspondence analysis calculation using MS Excel and taking advantage of VBA programming language. The application was then used to analyse Slovak banking sector. The created application is based on macro sets which can be split up to two parts. The first part produces a contingency table and converts it into a format usable in the second part. Then there is executed the Correspondence Analysis calculation itself. Supplement Matrix is being used, that allows to discharge functions from matrix and linear algebra. The application allows to process any matrix dimension. Dialog window offers four normalization types, shortened and also full output and it is possible to display row or column variable categories, eventually both. The analysis subject was to find out which of the products are typical for considered banks and for which clients, divided into age categories, is attractive particular bank and/or product. A starting point is a product usage data matrix at a particular bank. There was made a conclusion, that it is possible to divide banks into more traditional or modern type institutions and also that each bank has a typical product.
