The light curves of eclipsing binaries
Korda, David ; Zasche, Petr (advisor)
New CCD photometric observations of ten shortperiod LMB (Low Mass Binaries) were carried out. Data were obtained using 65 cm telescope in Ondrejov in the filters I, R and V from 2014 to 2016. Light curves were analysed using the program PHOEBE. The obtained masses and radii of the stars were compared with the theoretical massradii relation. There arises that the shortperiod binaries have the radii of about 4 % larger than the theoretical prediction from the stellar evolution models. 1


Helioseismic inversions of plasma flows and soundspeed perturbations
Korda, David ; Švanda, Michal (advisor) ; Komm, Rudolf (referee) ; Roth, Markus (referee)
Local helioseismology consists of methods which study the propagation of the waves through the solar interior. The properties of the waves encode conditions in the plasma along their propagation trajectories. Local helioseismology allows us to learn about these conditions. The principal method utilised in this thesis is the timedistance local helioseismology. The timedistance method is based on measurements of travel times of the waves, hence it is sensitive especially to plasma flows and soundspeed perturbations, to which we focus. We utilised the inverse modelling, mainly using subtractive optimally localised averaging method with a minimisation of the crosstalk. This method was modified to allow for a simultaneous inversion of vector flows and soundspeed perturbation. This combination makes use of both the difference and the mean pointtoannulus averaging geometries of wave travel times in both the ridge and the phasespeed filtering approaches. The combined inversion provides us with more information about the inverted quantities. Moreover, the user can control the crosstalk and other important mathematical properties of the objects involved. The modified methodology was thoroughly tested. The main results may be summarised in five points. First, for successful inversions of the soundspeed...

Pulsating components in binaries
Korda, David ; Zasche, Petr (advisor) ; Wolf, Marek (referee)
In the beginning there are introduced the binaries and pulsating stars. The main aim of the present work was the study of Delta Scuti stars within the eclipsing binaries. In particular, observing the stellar system V389 Cas at Ondrejov observatory, reduction of the CCD images with the program MuniWin, and analysis of the light curve with program Phoebe. From the residuals of the light curve there were studied the pulsations by the program Period04, resulting in its pulsational period. The relation between both periods  orbital and pulsational  was studied by means of the already known systems, including the theoretical relation and location of the star V389 Cas in the periodperiod diagram. 1
