RESEARCH INTERESTS
My main research interests fall into the qualitative theory of differential, difference, and dynamic equations. More specifically, I am enthralled by the spectral theory of the Sturm—Liouville equations, linear Hamiltonian (differential or difference) systems, and (discrete or dynamic) symplectic systems, which includes, e.g., the study of square integrable or summable solution, selfadjoint extensions, eigenfunctions expansion etc.

Eigenfunctions expansion for discrete symplectic systems with general linear
dependence on spectral parameter, J. Math. Anal. Appl., to appear.
Until April 06, 2021: Free access to the article via this link. 
ABSTRACT  Eigenfunctions expansion for discrete symplectic systems on a finite discrete interval is established in the case of a general linear dependence on the spectral parameter as a significant generalization of the Expansion theorem given by Bohner, Došlý and Kratz in [Trans. Amer. Math. Soc. 361 (2009), 3109–3123]. Subsequently, an integral representation of the WeylTitchmarsh M(λ)function is derived explicitly by using a suitable spectral function and a possible extension to the halfline case is discussed. The main results are illustrated by several examples.

Linear operators associated with differential and difference systems: What is different?, in: "Progress on Difference Equations and Discrete Dynamical Systems", Proceedings of the International Conference on Differential & Difference Equations and Applications 2019 (London, 2019), S. Baigent, M. Bohner, S. Elaydi (editors), Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics, Vol. 341, pp. 435–448, Springer, Berlin, 2020. 
ABSTRACT  The existence of a densely defined operator associated with (timereversed) discrete symplectic systems is discussed and the necessity of the development of the spectral theory for these systems by using linear relations instead of operators is shown. An explanation of this phenomenon is provided by using the time scale calculus. In addition, the density of the domain of the maximal linear relation associated with the system is also investigated.

ABSTRACT  New results in the Weyl—Titchmarsh theory for linear Hamiltonian differential systems are derived by using principal and antiprincipal solutions at infinity. In particular, a nonlimit circle case criterion is established and a close connection between the Weyl solution and the minimal principal solution at infinity is shown in the limit point case. In addition, the square integrability of the columns of the minimal principal solution at infinity is investigated. All results are obtained without any controllability assumption. Several illustrative examples are also provided.

ABSTRACT  A connection between the oscillation theory and the Weyl—Titchmarsh theory for the second order Sturm—Liouville equation on time scales is established by using the principal solution. In particular, it is shown that the Weyl solution coincides with the principal solution in the limit point case, and consequently the square integrability of the Weyl solution is obtained. Moreover, both limit point and oscillatory criteria are derived in the case of realvalued coefficients, while a generalization of the invariance of the limit circle case is proven for complexvalued coefficients. Several of these results are new even in the discrete time case. Finally, some illustrative examples are provided.

ABSTRACT  All selfadjoint extensions of minimal linear relation associated with the discrete symplectic system are characterized. Especially, for the scalar case on a finite discrete interval some equivalent forms and the uniqueness of the given expression are discussed and the Krein—von Neumann extension is described explicitly. In addition, a limit point criterion for symplectic systems is established. The result partially generalizes even the classical limit point criterion for the second order Sturm—Liouville difference equations.

ABSTRACT  This paper is devoted to the study of time scale symplectic systems with polynomial and analytic dependence on the complex spectral parameter λ. We derive fundamental properties of these systems (including the Lagrange identity) and discuss their connection with systems known in the literature, in particular with linear Hamiltonian systems. In analogy with the linear dependence on λ, we present a construction of the Weyl disks and determine the number of linearly independent square integrable solutions. These results extend the discrete time theory considered recently by the authors. To our knowledge, in the continuous time case this concept is new. We also establish the invariance of the limit circle case for a special quadratic dependence on λ and its extension to two (generally nonsymplectic) time scale systems, which yields new results also in the discrete case. The theory is illustrated by several examples.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we characterize the definiteness of the discrete symplectic system, study a nonhomogeneous discrete symplectic system, and introduce the minimal and maximal linear relations associated with these systems. Fundamental properties of the corresponding deficiency indices, including a relationship between the number of square summable solutions and the dimension of the defect subspace, are also derived. Moreover, a sufficient condition for the existence of a densely defined operator associated with the symplectic system is provided.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we consider two linear differential systems on a time scale. Both systems depend linearly on a complex spectral parameter λ. We prove that if all solutions of these two systems are square integrable with respect to a given weight matrix for one value λ_{0}, then this property is preserved for all complex values λ. This result extends and improves the corresponding continuous time statement, which was derived by Walker (1975) for two nonHermitian linear Hamiltonian systems, to appropriate differential systems on arbitrary time scales. The result is new even in the purely discrete case, or in the scalar time scale case, as well as when both time scale systems coincide. The latter case also generalizes a limit circle invariance criterion for symplectic systems on time scales, which was recently derived by the authors.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we consider discrete symplectic systems with analytic dependence on the spectral parameter. We derive the Lagrange identity, which plays a fundamental role in the spectral theory of discrete symplectic and Hamiltonian systems. We compare it to several special cases well known in the literature. We also examine the applications of this identity in the theory of Weyl disks and square summable solutions for such systems. As an example we show that a symplectic system with the exponential coefficient matrix is in the limit point case.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we study the limit point and limit circle classification for symplectic systems on time scales, which depend linearly on the spectral parameter. In a broader context, we develop a unified Weyl—Titchmarsh theory for continuous and discrete linear Hamiltonian and symplectic systems. Both separated and coupled boundary conditions are allowed. Our results include the study of the Weyl disks and circles and their limiting behavior, as well as a precise analysis of the number of linearly independent square integrable solutions. We also prove an analogue of the famous Weyl alternative. We connect and unify many known results in the Weyl—Titchmarsh theory for continuous, discrete, and special time scales systems and explain the differences between them. Some of our statements, in particular those connected with coupled endpoints or the Weyl alternative, are new even in the continuous time setting.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we develop the spectral theory for discrete symplectic systems with general jointly varying endpoints. This theory includes a characterization of the eigenvalues, construction of the Mlambda function and Weyl disks, their matrix radii and centers, statements about the number of square summable solutions, and limit point or limit circle analysis. These results are new even in some particular cases, such as for the periodic and antiperiodic endpoints, or for discrete symplectic systems with special linear dependence on the spectral parameter. The method utilizes a new transformation to separated endpoints, which is simpler and more transparent than the one in the known literature.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we develop the Weyl—Titchmarsh theory for discrete symplectic systems with general linear dependence on the spectral parameter. We generalize and complete several recent results concerning these systems, which have the spectral parameter only in the second equation. Our new theory includes characterizations of the Weyl disks and Weyl circles, their limiting behavior, properties of square summable solutions including the analysis of the exact number of linearly independent square summable solutions, and limit point/circle criteria. Some illustrative examples are also provided.

ABSTRACT  We establish the Rofe—Beketov formula for symplectic systems on time scales.

Moreover, this result is new even in the discrete time case.

ABSTRACT  The 2nth order Sturm—Liouville differential and difference equations can be written as the linear Hamiltonian differential systems and symplectic difference systems, respectively. In this paper, a similar result is given for the 2nth order Sturm—Liouville equation on time scales with using time reversed symplectic dynamic systems. Moreover, we show that this transformation preserves the value of the corresponding quadratic functionals which enables a further generalization of the theory for continuous and discrete Sturm—Liouville equations.

ABSTRACT  In this paper, we examine time scale symplectic (or Hamiltonian) systems and the associated quadratic functionals which contain a forward shift in the time variable. Such systems and functionals have a close connection to Jacobi systems for calculus of variations and optimal control problems on time scales. Our results, among which we consider the Reid roundabout theorem, generalize the corresponding classical theory for time reversed discrete symplectic systems, as well as they complete the recently developed theory of time scale symplectic systems.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we present an overview of the basic Weyl—Titchmarsh theory for second order Sturm—Liouville equations on time scales. We construct m(λ)function, the Weyl solution, and Weyl disk. We justify the terminology “disk” by its geometric properties, show explicitly the coordinates of the center of the disk, and calculate its radius. We show that the dichotomy regarding the square integrable solutions known in the continuous time and discrete theory works in the same way for general time scales.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we introduce the concept of critical operators for dynamic operators of second order. Next, we show that an arbitrarily small (in a certain sense) negative perturbation of a nonnegative critical operator leads to an operator which is no longer nonnegative.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we develop the Weyl—Titchmarsh theory for time scale symplectic systems. We introduce the M(λ)function, study its properties, construct the corresponding Weyl disk and Weyl circle, and establish their geometric structure including the formulas for their center and matrix radii. Similar properties are then derived for the limiting Weyl disk. We discuss the notions of the system being in the limit point or limit circle case and prove several characterizations of the system in the limit point case and one condition for the limit circle case. We also define the Green function for the associated nonhomogeneous system and use its properties for deriving further results for the original system in the limit point or limit circle case. Our work directly generalizes the corresponding discrete time theory obtained recently by S. Clark and the second author in Appl. Math. Comput. It also unifies the results in many other papers on the Weyl—Titchmarsh theory for linear Hamiltonian differential, difference, and dynamic systems when the spectral parameter appears in the second equation. Some of our results are new even in the case of the second order Sturm—Liouville equations on time scales.

ABSTRACT  We consider an operator defined by the second order Sturm—Liouville equation on an unbounded time scale. For such an operator we give characterizations of the domains of its Krein—von Neumann and Friedrichs extensions by using the recessive solution. This generalizes and unifies similar results obtained for operators connected with the second order Sturm—Liouville differential and difference equations.

ABSTRACT  Recently, Bohner and Sun introduced basic elements of a Weyl—Titchmarsh theory into the study of discrete symplectic systems. We extend this development through the introduction of Weyl—Titchmarsh functions together with a preliminary study of their properties. A limit point criterion is described and characterized. Green′s function for the halfline is introduced as a limit of such functions in the regular case and halfline solutions obtained are seen to satisfy λdependent boundary conditions at infinity.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we consider a linear operator on an unbounded interval associated with a matrix linear Hamiltonian system. We characterize its Friedrichs extension in terms of the recessive system of solutions at infinity.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we discuss trigonometric and hyperbolic systems on time scales. These systems generalize and unify their corresponding continuoustime and discretetime analogies, namely the systems known in the literature as trigonometric and hyperbolic linear Hamiltonian systems and discrete symplectic systems. We provide time scale matrix definitions of the usual trigonometric and hyperbolic functions and show that many identities known from the basic calculus extend to this general setting, including the time scale differentiation of these functions.

ABSTRACT  In this paper we provide a survey of characterizations of the nonnegativity and positivity of quadratic functionals arising in the theory of linear Hamiltonian and symplectic systems. We study these functionals on traditional continuous time domain (under and without controllability), on discrete domain, and on time scale domain which unifies and extends both previous types. For each case we distinguish functionals with zero, separated, and jointly varying endpoints. The presented conditions are formulated in terms of the properties of a special conjoined basis of the considered linear system. It is now easy to compare all the results ‒ between continuous, discrete, and time scale cases, between the zero, separated, and jointly varying endpoints, and between the nonnegativity and positivity.

Discrete Symplectic Systems and Square Summable Solutions, habilitation thesis, Masaryk University, Brno, 2016. 
ABSTRACT  In this habilitation thesis we present our recent contributions to the ongoing development of the theory of square summable solutions of discrete symplectic systems. It is based on results, which were achieved by the author and his scientific collaborators (S. Clark and R.Šimon Hilscher) during his postdoctoral research in the period 2011‑2016. The major part of them was published in papers [A14,A15,A17,A19,A21] and in a more general setting also in papers [A16,A18,A20]. Systematic research in this area began in 2010, when M. Bohner and S. Sun and independently (and more extensively) S. Clark and the author in [A5] investigated square summable solutions of discrete symplectic systems with a special linear dependence on the spectral parameter, see the beginning of Chapter 2 for more details. In the present work we collect our results for discrete symplectic systems with general linear dependence on the spectral parameter as well as with a polynomial or analytic dependence. However, we emphasize that these results do not only improve the type of the dependence on the spectral parameter, but they significantly generalize and extend the results of Bohner and Sun and [A5]. We also lay foundations of the operator theoryfor discrete symplectic systems, which is intimately connected with the topic of square summable solutions. The thesis consists of seven chapters and an appendix.

New Results in Theory of Symplectic Systems on Time Scales, doctoral dissertation, Masaryk University, Brno, 2011. ISBN 978‑80‑210‑5515‑5. 
ABSTRACT  In this dissertation we present new results in the theory of symplectic systems on time scales (also symplectic dynamic systems) obtained and published by the author (jointly with collaborators) during his doctoral study between the years 2007 and 2011. The dissertation is organized into five chapters. The study of symplectic systems is motivated in the introductory chapter, where an overview of the new results contained in the text is also given. In the second chapter, the reader will find fundamental parts of the time scale calculus indispensable for the understanding of the subsequent chapters. The main body of the text is represented by the following chapters. In Chapter 3, we define trigonometric and hyperbolic systems on time scales and study their properties. Solutions of these systems generalize the well known trigonometric functions sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, and their hyperbolic analogies. They also satisfy formulas generalizing some of the known trigonometric and hyperbolic identities from the scalar continuous case (e.g., Pythagorean trigonometric identity, double angle, producttosum, and sumtoproduct formulas). In the following Chapter 4, the Weyl—Titchmarsh theory for symplectic dynamic systems is established. We generalize results for linear Hamiltonian differential systems obtained particularly during the second half of the 20th century. The theory given in both of these chapters is new even for symplectic difference systems, which are a special case of the symplectic systems on time scales. In the final chapter, we pay our attention to the most special case of the symplectic systems on time scales, namely to the Sturm—Liouville dynamic equations of the second order. For operators associated with these equations we characterize the domains of their Krein—von Neumann and Friedrichs extensions and also introduce the concept of the critical, subcritical, and supercritical operators. Some results obtained in Chapter 5 are also new in this special case, therefore the most important results of the Weyl—Titchmarsh theory for the second order Sturm—Liouville dynamic equations are given in the last part of this chapter. For completeness, this dissertation is finished with a sketch of a further research in the presented theory, author′s current list of publications, and his curriculum vitae.

Lineární diferenciální rovnice ntého řádu s konstantními koeficienty a jejich aplikace (in Czech, [Linear Differential Equations of nth Order with Constant Coefficients and Their Applications]), BSc. thesis, Masaryk University, Brno, 2005. 
ABSTRACT  Linear differential equations nth order with constant coefficients and their applications are the theme of this bachelor thesis. The text is parted into four chapters. The first chapter contains basic definitions and some fundamental theorems of the general theory of ordinary differential equations. The second chapter is focused on the theory of homogeneous differential equations and their general solutions. In the third chapter, the theory of inhomogeneous differential equations is described and the variation of constants is shown. Next, there are given general forms of solutions of inhomogeneous differential equations with special righthand sides. In the last section of this chapter, Euler differential equation is studied. In the fourth chapter, three physical examples (elastic oscillation, harmonious oscillator with applied outside power, and RLC circuit) are solved.
