Vieroslava Holková, Alexandra Veselková - Teoreticko-praktické aspekty formovania kvality života z pohľadu spotreby (Theoretical and Practical Aspects of Forming Quality of Life in terms of Consumption)
Abstract: The significance and definition of quality of life have undergone some development, the content has changed according to how society and the living conditions in it have evolved. The aim of the paper is to point out how not only the way of looking at quality of life has changed but also its content. The paper offers an overview of the development of this concept and its application in practice from the second half of the 20th century to the present, it also discusses the role and importance of consumption for shaping the quality of life. The basis for examining the impact of consumption on the quality of life we chose the net money expenditures of our households, which are divided into three spheres. By analyzing the sphere of non-working time, free time and cross-sectional areas, we evaluate the existential aspect of life and offer a certain picture of the formation of quality of life in terms of changes in the consumption of Slovak households in 2016 and 2017.
Keywords: quality of life, domains of quality of life, definition of quality of life, satisfaction, needs, consumption
Patrik Jankovič, Richard Kališ, Erika Stracová - Vyhodnotili sme priebežné výsledky testov našich študentov (We have just Analysed the Midterm Scores of our Students)
Abstract: In this paper, we examined midterm scores of our students. Results suggest that we were able to provide equal conditions in teaching, examining and assessing despite the fact that the seminar was taught by multiple teachers. While there is a significant difference in the scores of some groups, controlling their previous grades can explain some of the differences. Therefore, one can conclude that these can be explained by the different level of individual students, rather than by the level of teaching, examining or assessing. Based on our experience, we also propose a way to ensure equal conditions for all students.
Miroslava Knapková, Eva Hudecová - Zrušenie a zánik obchodnej spoločnosti v konkurze – vybrané súvislosti (Winding-up and Dissolution of Company in Bankruptcy – Selected Aspects)
Abstract: The aim of the paper is to clarify the basic terminology related to the termination of the business companies within the bankruptcy procedure. To understand particular terms, a brief definition from the legal acts is often not sufficient. We used legal literature, legal texts, including commentaries, explanations of laws, interpretative dictionaries, and available court decisions to elaborate complex overview of the basic terms of the bankruptcy of business companies. Our ambition was to capture only the present state, so we did not analyse historical context of the bankruptcy in Slovakia. Bankruptcy is a broad issue, and we only provide a basic overview of the terminology related to the termination of business companies as legal entities, with an emphasis on the possibility of their termination within the bankruptcy procedure.
Keywords: business companies, bankruptcy, termination of existence, insolvency, liquidation
Mária Dzurová - Spotrebiteľ na finančnom trhu (Financial Market Consumption)
Abstract: The importance of financial literacy in the European environment is increasing. Financial markets are evolving and changing. The financial products offered are complex and consumers do not understand them. Often they can not choose the most advantageous offer from the structure of the products of the banking institutions. If problems arise, the cause is insufficient knowledge and financial literacy. It is very important for a person to be able to orient himself in a wide range of financial products.
Lidiia Karpenko - Inovatívne dominanty v procese modelovania medzinárodných stratégií: matica konkurencie schopnosti podnikateľského subjektu (Innovative Dominants in the Process of Modelling International Strategies: Business Strength Matrix)
Abstract: This paper investigates the innovative dominants in the process modelling of international strategies in the coordinates of globalization changes and European integration. The conceptual bases for the development of strategic planning programmes in international business are examined in the paper. A number of economic and mathematical models for evaluating investment processes and justifying the development of international strategies, their variability and optimality are proposed. The application of new mechanisms of innovative development of the economy and its investment support is justified. Paper represents and analyzes the business strength matrixes in today’s business environment, such as: competitive strength matrix, Industry Attractiveness-Business Strength Matrix, and the Life Cycle- Competitive Strength Matrix. In the article there are the main research vectors in the process of modelling international strategies, innovative forms of investment, which are widely used: crowdfunding, crowdinvesting, and сrowdsourcing. Also in the article crypto currency is researched by the author, it is the subject form of strategy and innovative dominant of monetary policy. Theoretical and methodological bases of the research consist of the research of modern economic concepts of management, informatisation, and system theory. The objective of research consists in defining programmatic and methodological basic concepts for the analysis of innovation activity, systematization of analytic indicators of industrial enterprises.
Keywords: factor models, business strength matrix, competitive strength matrix, crowdfunding, crowdsourcing, crowdinvesting, investment, multi- business companies, crypto currency
Meruert Serіk, Jaroslav Kultan, Nursaule Karelkhan - Vytvorenie digitálneho zdroja pomocou paralelného výpočtu (The Creation of the Digital Resource with the Aid of Parallel Computing)
Abstract: Nowadays, the development of cross-platform applications which work on the different digital platform is a highly attractive topic, which is rising in importance. Another main focus is with the help of parallel computing on the creation of digital resource, which work on the operating system of Windows, Android, IOS, Mac OS X, for the reduction of its loading time. Parallel computing systems are ubiquitous today. From laptops and mobile phones to global-scale compute infrastructures, parallel computing systems drive the world we live in. Although motivated by advances in hardware design, the many-core revolution has a profound impact on engineering software: Only software explicitly dedicated to parallel architectures can fully exploit today’s hardware potential and benefit from future gains in hardware performance. Only software engineers who are true experts in parallel computing systems can make an impact on future software (Clemens Grelck, 2018) . In our case it is possible to reduce the initialisation time of the digital resource by using the parallel options of all cores of processors, which iscreatedinRadStudioXE7. Inthisarticle,themethodsandefficiencyofthe digital resource creation are demonstrated by using the parallel computing.

Peter Leško - Exponenciálna ekonomika podporujúca udržateľný ekonomický rozvoj krajiny (The Exponential Economy Supporting Sustainable Economic Development of the Country)
Abstract: The quality and availability of technologies is multiplying every year, which means that they are changing very quickly from the interesting ideas to usable products or services. The aim of this paper is to clarify a relatively young concept of the Exponential Economy supporting the sustainable economic development of the country. Particularly, the technology-intensive sectors characterized by exponential technological growth are more responsible for an increasing share of productivity and overall economic growth. Empirical findings confirm that this is principally the case for the digital economy, the industry 4.0 concept, the strengthening of the space sector, as well as the increase in total consumption as a result of global population growth. These areas of the economy play a major role in the implementation of effective and inclusive digital transformation.
