Otomar Hájek is a Czech- American mathematician, known for his contributions to dynamical systems, game theory and control theory.
He got his
Ph.D. at Charles University in Prague (1963) on a thesis entitled Dynamical systems in the plane. At the same place he joined the mathematics and physics faculty (1965–68), before moving to Cleveland and Case Western Reserve University (1968–95) as professor, becoming an emeritus (1996–).
In the mid-1970s Hájek was also in receipt of a
von Humboldt award at the TH Darmstadt, Fachbereich Mathematik. [1 ] [2 ]
