Dates are wrong[edit]

The article currently says "Kučera returned to Harvard in 1969 as a research fellow. The next year, Kučera received an appointment at Brown University where he was promoted to full professor in 1965." Clearly, one of the dates is wrong, since 1965 must come before 1969.

Kucera or Kučera?[edit]

His surname is spelled with plain c in the title, then immediately with č ("c-wedge", "c with caron"), the Czech spelling, throughout the lead section and in most of the article. One should be settled on and the other mentioned. Thnidu (talk) 08:35, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
