Nečas Center for Mathematical Modeling is a collaborative effort between the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University, the Institute of Mathematics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University.

One of the basic aims of the Nečas Center for Mathematical Modeling is to establish a scientific team studying mathematical properties of models in continuum mechanics and thermodynamics and to promote collaboration between members of the team and world renowned scientists. Another aim of the Nečas Center for Mathematical Modeling is to initiate Czech researchers to study new mathematical methods. To this end the experts, with research fields connected to the scientific program of the Nečas Center, are invited to present courses. The goal of the Lecture Notes of the Nečas Center for Mathematical Modeling is to record these courses.
