**A critical review of paradoxes in the special theory of relativity**

Křížek, Michal

2020 - English
We show that the Doppler effect and aberration of light can produce more dominant and entirely opposite effects for relativistic speeds than those predicted by the Special Theory of Relativity, in particular, the clock paradox, time dilatation, and length contraction. For instance, an observer will measure a higher frequency of an approaching clock than the same clock has at rest. We also prove that under certain conditions an approaching bar on a photo may seem to have a larger length for a relativistic speed than at rest.

**Recent results on the problem of motion of viscous fluid around a rotating rigid body**

Deuring, P.; Kračmar, Stanislav; Nečasová, Šárka

2020 - English
We consider the linearized incompressible flow around rotating and translating body in the exterior domain R³D‾, where D⊂R³ is open and bounded, with Lipschitz boundary. We derive the pointwise estimates for the pressure. Further, we consider the linearized problem in a truncation domain DR:=BRD‾ of the exterior domain R³D‾ under certain artificial boundary conditions on the truncating boundary ∂BR, and then compare this solution with the solution in the exterior domain R³D‾ to get the truncation error estimate.

**Note on the problem of compressible non-Newtonian fluids**

Caggio, M.; Nečasová, Šárka

2019 - English
The aim of the paper is to consider the compressible non-Newtonian fluids of power law type when the viscosity coeffcients depend not only on invariants of velocity field but also on the density. We introduce approximation scheme using model of multipolar fluids. After then passing with higher viscosity to zero we get the measure valued solution of the problem.

**On the mechanisms of dimensional transition in stably stratified turbulent fluid layers**

Caggio, M.; Bodnár, Tomáš; Schiavon, M.

2019 - English
The purpose of this short review communication is to present some recent results on the effects of stable density stratification on the three-dimensional turbulent dynamics of 'thin' fluid layers forced at intermediate scales. In particular, how the strati cation and the confinement affect the mechanism of kinetic and potential energy transfer between different scales. Results on two-dimensional vertically stratifed flows and possible applications for stably stratifed atmospheric boundary layer will be shortly discussed.

**Multivariate smooth interpolation that employs polyharmonic functions**

Segeth, Karel

2019 - English
We study the problém of construction of the smooth interpolation formula presented as the minimizer of suitable functionals subject to interpolation constraints. We present a procedure for determining the interpolation formula that in a natural way leads to a linear combination of polyharmonic splines complemented with lower order polynomials therms. In general, such formulae can be very useful e.g. in geographic information systems or computer aided geometric design. A simple computational example is presented.

**Numerical tests of far-field boundary conditions for stably stratified flows**

Bodnár, Tomáš; Fraunié, P.; Řezníček, Hynek

2019 - English
This numerical study presents the results of simulations of stably stratified wall-bounded flows. The effect of artificial far-field boundary conditions is studied in detail. The standard homogeneous Neumann condition for pressure is replaced by a non-homogeneous condition depending on local velocity and its gradient. The two-dimensional tests are performed for the case of flow over a low isolated hill. The simulations on computational domains with three different heights are discussed to evaluate the performance of the new far-field artifcial boundary condition. The model is based on Boussinesq approximation of non-homogeneous Navier-Stokes equations, solved using artificial compressibility method, looking for a steady solution.

**Analysis of the turbulence parameterisations for the atmospheric surface layer**

Caggio, Matteo; Bodnár, Tomáš

2018 - English
The purpose of this short communication is to present a method that aims to express the turbulent variables in the atmospheric surface-layer in function of the stability of the atmosphere. The case of very stable conditions (strong strati cation), where theoretical approaches provide conflicting results (see Luhar et al. [11]), is analysed in detail to provide some insight into the limits of applicability for some of the most popular models of turbulence. The problem of the existence of the critical flux Richardson number is also taken into account.

**Classification of distances in cosmology**

Křížek, Michal; Mészáros, A.

2018 - English
In cosmology many different distances are defined: angular, comoving, Euclidean, Hubble, light-year, luminosity, Minkowski, parallax, proper motion, redshift, ... distance. There is not one single natural distance, since the universe is expanding, curved, and we look back in time. In this survey paper we will concentrate on geometrical interpretations of the above-mentioned distances.

**Neglected gravitational redshift in detections of gravitational waves**

Křížek, Michal; Somer, L.

2018 - English
In 2016, the letter [1] about the first detection of gravitational waves was published. They were generated by two merging black holes that had approximately 36 and 29 Sun’s masses. However, the authors have not taken into account a large gravitational redshift of this binary system, which is a direct consequence of time dilation in a strong gravitational field. Thus the proposed masses are overestimated. In our paper we also give other arguments for this statement.

**Parallel domain decomposition solver for flows in hydrostatic bearings**

Hanek, Martin; Šístek, Jakub; Burda, P.; Stach, E.

2018 - English
We perform simulations of oil flow in hydrostatic bearings. Stationary incompressible three-dimensional flow governed by the Navier-Stokes equations is considered. The finite element method is used for discretization. The arising nonlinear system of algebraic equations is linearized using the Picard’s iteration, and the Balancing Domain Decomposition based on Constraints (BDDC) method is used to solve the linear systems of equations. The solver is first validated with an experiment for the case of a bearing without motion, and it is then applied to simulation of flow in a sliding bearing.
