  1. 1. Statistical Physics of Protein Folding and Aggregation

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Giorgio Favrin; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : Physics; Two State; Fysik; Statistics; operations research; programming; aktuariematematik; programmering; operationsanalys; actuarial mathematics; Statistik; Simulations; Aggregation; Protein Folding; Fysicumarkivet A:2004:Favrin; MATEMATIK; MATHEMATICS; Fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : The mechanisms of protein folding and aggregation are investigated by computer simulations of all-atom and reduced models with sequence-based potentials. A quasi local Monte Carlo update is developed in order to efficiently sample proteins in the folded phase. READ MORE

  3. 3. Two-Barrier Problems in Applied Probability: Algorithms and Analysis

    University dissertation from Centre for Mathematical Sciences

    Author : Mats Pihlsgård; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : operations research; Statistics; programming; actuarial mathematics; Statistik; Matematik; Mathematics; Naturvetenskap; Natural science; Reflection; Stochastic processes; Applied probability; Queueing; operationsanalys; programmering; aktuariematematik; MATEMATIK; MATHEMATICS;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of five papers (A-E). In Paper A, we study transient properties of the queue length process in various queueing settings. We focus on computing the mean and the Laplace transform of the time required for the queue length starting at $x<n$ to reach level $n$. We use two different techniques. READ MORE

  4. 4. Aortic valve replacement with stentless bioprostheses : Prospective long-term studies of the Biocor and the Toronto SPV

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Göran Dellgren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]

    Abstract : Background. Aortic valve disease is increasing among the elderly and aortic valve replacement is the most common cardiac surgical valve procedure in adults. Aortic stenosis (AS) is often associated with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in an unexplained pattern. READ MORE

  5. 5. Essays on Pensions and Information

    University dissertation from Department of Economics, P.O. Box 7082, S-220 07 Lund, Sweden
