In the course of my academical career I have lectured on various topics  ranging from pure mathematics to the programming languages.
I would like to recall e.g. Partial Differential Equations and Numerical Linear Algebra for MSc. students at Faculty of Maths&Physics,
Charles University, Prague, Mathematics for chemical engineers and Methods of Applied Mathematics
(mathematical foundation of the finite element method) for MSc. and Ph.D. students at University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague.
My research field is Numerical Analysis, namely numerical solution of nonlinear problems,
bifurcations and problems in Numerical Linear Algebra.
For many years I have cooperated with my colleagues abroad, namely in Germany (University Hamburg, University Marburg,
University Konstanz) and in Japan (Institute of Statistical Mathematics, Waseda University, Tokyo). I am doing my best to take advantage of these contacts for the benefit of our students in the frame of the SocratesErasmus program.
I am a coordinator of Erasmuscooperation agreements with University Hamburg and University Konstanz. I have been a member of several local organizing committees for internationalconferences in Prague (annual GAMM meeting  1996, CzechAmerican Workshopon Iterative Methods and Parallel Computing  1997, 3rd Scientific Colloquium 2001, ICT Prague, Software and Algorithms of Numerical Mathematics  every second year till 2004). I was also a member of the scientific committeeof the international conference Preconditioning of Iterative Methods in Prague 2013. Together with doc. Turzík, I was a head of the organizing committee of the 4th Scientific Colloquium, Prague, June 2014. This colloquium was organized by Department of Mathematics UCT. In 2015, I was one of three organizers of the international conference Noncommutative Algebras and Applications (NCAA) in Goslar(SRN).
Taking into account that an academic job should also be considered as a hobbythese days, there is no much time left for my really private pleasures. But thereare some: literature, classical music and theater.
Future scientific research

Numerical Linear Algebra
With my coauthor pro. Gerhard Opfer from University Hamburg, we try to build numerical linear algebra on the field of quaternions. Quaternions have found their way into applications in computer graphics, computer vision, robotics, navigation, molecular dynamics,
orbital mechanics of satellites, etc. All these applications are essentially based on the capability of the multiplicatio with a single
quaternion in the sense of an orthogonaltransformation. We have studied for example different reductions ofthe quaternionic
matrices or polynomials defined by quaternions. Thereare also other types of noncommutative algebras, for example coquaternionsor
tessarines. For example, we study algebraic Riccati equation inquaternions.

Nonlinear Dynamical Systems
With my Ph.D. students, we study the long–term qualitative behavior of nonlinear dynamical systems including numerical solutions
and simulations. In particular, we apply the Filippov systems theory to selected problems from biology and chemical engineering.
For example we explored a new formulation of Bazykin’s ecological model, a predatorprey model with human intervention, an ideal
gas–liquid system including DAE formulation of the system with a chemical reaction, etc. We illustrate the theory by simulations of the behavior of the specific systems.
Concept of teaching
Except for the basic courses for bachelors, I run advance lectures that are designed for master and doctoral students who want to deepen their mathematical education: the objective is to model, simulate and solve particular problems in chemical engineering. This includes Dynamical Systems, Ordinary and Partial Differential equations, Finite Element Method, Numerical Analysis, etc. These activities are directly related to my research.
