Operation Anthropoid Project


Operation Anthropoid is a story of assassination of "3rd most dangerous man in the Third Reich" Reinhard Heydrich by Czechoslovak SOE parachutists trained by British SOE in the United Kingdom. It was a hit-and-run operation, except there was nowhere to run. Moreover, it was a story or unprecedented heroism and bravery. Operation Anthropoid remains one of the Prague's most intriguing and thrilling stories and constitutes an enormous tourism potential for the Czech capital. Read about the results of Operation Anthropoid Project here or watch the video (in Czech).

"Science & Vie": 35 discoveries worth a Nobel prize

It is my great honour to annouce that a prestigious French popular science magazine "Science & Vie" included our paper into the list of "35 novel discoveries that are worth a Nobel Prize (but will probably never get it)"! The incrminated paper:

(2013), Mathematical models of interactions between species: peaceful co-existence of vampires and humans based on the models derived from fiction, literature and films, Applied Mathematical Sciences, Vol. 7, no. 9-12: 453-470, ISSN 1312-885X is available here for download. The full text of the article at "Science & Vie" can be found here.

Improbable research: Vampires exist!

My serious research on a ridiculous topic has found its way to the the respected academic journals. It demonstrates that peaceful co-existence of humans and vampires is possible. See the two following papers for more details:
