  1. 6. An Institutional Analysis of Insurance Regulation - The Case of Sweden

    University dissertation from Department of Economics, Lund Universtiy

    Author : P Göran T Hägg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Prime Move Problem; Misguided Trust; Trust-sensitive Contracts; The Economics of Trust; The Special Interest Theory; The Public Interest Theory; Transaction Costs; Institutional Theory; Insurance Regulation; Institutions; Reputation; Quality.; Actuarial science; Försäkring ej försäkringsrätt S137 ;

    Abstract : The thesis is a broad attempt to analyse economic forces behind, and economic rationales for, institutions that constrain the organisation and operation of insurance companies. The basic task is threefold: (i) to develop institutional theory by providing an outline of a transaction cost explanation of the origin of, and the rationale for, institutions that constrain the organisation and the operation of insurance organisations; (ii) to apply our institutional theory and explain recorded institutional structures in order to make them intelligible with respect to the contractual context in which they have been nested; and (iii) to appraise the explanatory power of our institutional theory with respect to conventional economic theories on the economics of public regulation.

  2. 7. Low-level analysis of microarray data

    University dissertation from Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Henrik Bengtsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aktuariematematik; programmering; Statistik; operationsanalys; Statistics; operations research; programming; actuarial mathematics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of an extensive introduction followed by seven papers (A-F) on low-level analysis of microarray data. Focus is on calibration and normalization of observed data. The introduction gives a brief background of the microarray technology and its applications in order for anyone not familiar with the field to read the thesis. READ MORE

  3. 8. Hidden Markov models - Traffic modeling and subspace methods

    University dissertation from Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Sofia Andersson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; actuarial mathematics; programming; Statistik; operationsanalys; Statistics; operations research; subspace identification; state space representation; likelihood estimation; Poissonification; traffic analysis; hidden Markov model; Markov-modulated Poisson process; programmering; aktuariematematik;

    Abstract : The main motivation for this thesis, however not the only one, is the search for models for traffic in telecommunication networks. Traffic characterization and modeling are of great importance in the analysis and dimensioning of communication systems. During the last decades we have experienced an explosive growth of our telecommunication networks. READ MORE

  4. 9. Stochastic Modeling and Operational Optimization in District Heating Systems

    University dissertation from Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Lars Arvastson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; actuarial mathematics; Statistik; programming; operations research; Statistics; Matematik; optimization; Mathematics; simulation; prediction; District heating; grey-box modeling; operationsanalys; programmering; aktuariematematik; Systems engineering; computer technology; Data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : Operation of a district heating system is accomplished via a sequence of decisions by the operators controlling the system. These decisions are based on expectations of conditions in the system that are not known at decision time. READ MORE
