The Construction of Warfare Technology in Russian Military Thinking
Solovyeva, Anzhelika ; Hynek, Nikola (advisor) ; Střítecký, Vít (referee) ; Eichler, Jan (referee)
The Construction of Warfare Technology in Russian Military Thinking Anzhelika Solovyeva Abstract This dissertation traces the dynamics of military-technological innovation in Russia over the last hundred and fifty years. The analysis relies extensively on primary data obtained from Russian archives, complemented by a series of expert interviews. The goal is to understand whether and to what extent Russia's respective discourses and practices constitute a distinct strategic cultural approach. The relationship between strategic culture and military- technological innovation is considered from two different, yet complementary, perspectives. From an empirical standpoint, the analysis is guided by six substantial arguments derived from the existing literature on Russian strategic culture, technology and military doctrine, interviews conducted by the author, and partially from the author's own knowledge of the problematic. In theoretical terms, this dissertation offers and graphically nuances a novel conceptual model, theorizing processes related to military-technological innovation and the role of strategic cultural frames. The last two arguments guiding the empirical focus of this dissertation are derived from the theoretical discussion. This model is subsequently applied to three case studies, with the key...
Conformity and eccentricity; driving forces of cultural evolution
Kutsos, Peter ; Tureček, Petr (advisor) ; Šaffa, Gabriel (referee)
When deciding between alternative strategies, animals often have to operate with limited or conflicting information. In these situations, what source of information they prioritize can make a huge difference. Individuals relying on social information (social learners) economize on costs like the risk of eating the wrong food or the energy needed to survey the environment but run the risk of the information they use being out of date or of low quality. On the other hand, those who prioritize individual learning can be more confident in the accuracy of their information, but without any social learning are forced to "reinvent the wheel" every generation. Natural selection has shaped several adaptive heuristic rules which help inform social learning. One category of these rules is frequency-dependent, which means that the probability of behavioural pattern acquisition depends on how common (or rare) they are in a population. This work is a literature review regarding two such rules: conformity and anticonformity and the roles they play in cultural evolution. Keywords: Frequency-dependent transmission, cultural evolution, social learning, conformity bias, anticonformity

The Innovation of oscillators in mechanical-electrical keyboard instruments
Prokop, Šimon ; Buzzi, Mario (referee) ; Jirásek, Ondřej (advisor)
The bachelor thesis deals with innovations of oscillators of mechanical-electric keyboard instruments, especially from the perspective of frequency spectrum innovations. On the basis of the original oscillators of the Rhodes Mk 7 instrument, innovative virtual models of these oscillators were created in SolidWorks, which were subsequently analyzed in Ansys. Subsequently, these assemblies were physically fabricated and tested. In the final evaluation, the signal spectra of the upgraded assemblies were compared with the original tone and the analyzed data. The theoretical part of the thesis also discusses basic signal processing methods and describes methods for evaluating sound perception using psychological acoustics.

Programme by the European Union, the European Capital of Culture (ECOC), is an occasion to host a year-round cultural festival and a possibility to transform the city. The scope and format of the event are a unique opportunity to accelerate development and articulate the fundamental shortcomings of the environment. Brno has applied for this title for 2028. The first half of 2022 is at the beginning of its preparations for the first round. The candidacy is an opportunity for the city to network with diversified stakeholders and realize the values of local heritage based on multiethnic and specific history. Brno can innovate itself socially, economically, urban and sustainably within the candidacy, The thesis deals with the innovation potential of the city of Brno based on a sustainable approach to its heritage, inspired by six cases of cities that applied for the ECOC: Štýrský Hradec, Genoa, Ostrava, Vratislav, Paphos and Trenčín. The individual selected examples represent different approaches to candidacy, thus reflecting diversified processes and results. Although many of them have succeeded in transforming their identity, addressing complicated history or signing up on the map of Europe thanks to the ECOC, they are evaluated not only through a utopian perspective but rather as a reflection of the positive and negative changes caused by the ECOC candidacy. Inspiration from examples from abroad is prescribed in the strategic diagrammatic design of the urban solution of possible future sustainable development of the city of Brno through the candidacy for the ECOC based on the heritage-led approach in the last chapter. In conclusion, however, it should be noted that the ECOC is a unique opportunity for the city of Brno to obtain positive acceleration effects. However, it can quickly become a development pitfall accompanied by destructive side effects.
