  1. 1. Deflating selection : On the interpretation and application of evolutionary theory

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Philosophy, Stockholm University

    Author : Björn Brunnander; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; ambiguity; causal factor; drift; evolutionary theory; force; function; intentional psychology; interpretation; multiple realisation; natural selection; philosophical method; pre-theoretical influence; redundancy; Theoretical Philosophy; teoretisk filosofi;

    Abstract : Although the theory of evolution is well-established it nevertheless presents us with a few unresolved matters of interpretation. One key task is to get clear about what exactly one should take the term 'natural selection' to denote. READ MORE

  2. 2. Selection in sperm and its consequences Exploring haploid selection, ageing and epigenetic effects in sperm

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Cosima Hermans Née Hotzy; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sperm; evolution; selection; haploid selection; epigenetics; sperm-mediated effects; trans-generational effects; sperm ageing; sperm senescence;

    Abstract : Sexually reproducing eukaryotes are typically going through a biphasic life cycle with a diploid and a haploid phase. Unlike in plants where selection on haploid pollen genotypes is well established, the possibility of selection occurring in animal sperm is currently not known. READ MORE

  3. 3. Employee selection Mechanisms behind practitioners’ preference for hiring practices

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Psychology, Stockholm University

    Author : Kristina Langhammer; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; employee selection decision making; employee data collection methods; hiring practices; self-efficacy; causal attribution; behavioral intention; agency; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : Despite the great advances science has made in developing selection decision aids practitioners’ generally remain reluctant to adopt them. This phenomenon is considered today one of the greatest gaps in industrial, work and organizational psychology. READ MORE

  4. 4. Robust inference of gene regulatory networks System properties, variable selection, subnetworks, and design of experiments

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Torbjörn E. M. Nordling; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; network inference; reverse engineering; variable selection; model selection; feature selection; subset selection; system identification; system theory; network theory; subnetworks; design of experiments; perturbation experiments; gene regulatory networks; biological networks;

    Abstract : In this thesis, inference of biological networks from in vivo data generated by perturbation experiments is considered, i.e. deduction of causal interactions that exist among the observed variables. Knowledge of such regulatory influences is essential in biology. READ MORE

  5. 5. Model Selection

    University dissertation from Uppsala University

    Author : Yngve Selén; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electrical Engineering with specialization in Signal Processing; Elektroteknik med inriktning mot signalbehandling;

    Abstract : Before using a parametric model one has to be sure that it offers a reasonable description of the system to be modeled. If a bad model structure is employed, the obtained model will also be bad, no matter how good is the parameter estimation method. There exist many possible ways of validating candidate models.
