Scalar perturbations of K-essence models with applications to late-time cosmic acceleration
Mgr. Jan Novák, PhD.
Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Informatics and Statistics, University of Economics in Prague

An elementary introduction to scalar perturbations of the K-essence models. I will show how to obtain a late-time cosmic acceleration and indicate how to use the approach also for a>a0, which will be useful for modelling of the earlier stages of cosmic evolution.

Dissipative effects in cosmology
Dr. Giovanni Acquaviva

I review some models that take into account dissipative effects of fluids in an expanding Universe, in the context of General Relativity. The effect of dissipation on the cosmic evolution is assessed by means of different methods, such as perturbation theory and dynamical systems analysis.
