  1. 1. Complexity and Ambivalence in Ship Safety Inspection The view of Swedish Port state control officers

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Fredrik Hjorth; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2015]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Inspection; Port state control; Detention; Deprofessionalization; Compliance; Maritime safety; Profession; Bureaucracy; Sjöfartsvetenskap; Maritime Science;

    Abstract : Despite an extensive system of Port state controls (PSC) on ships, inspection loopholes in European control functions have been reported. Furthermore, risk factors associated with fatigue, stress and a poorly developed safety culture on board ships have been identified in earlier research. READ MORE

    Abstract : The primary purpose of this study is to describe and analyze the crisis management strategies used by Solidarity and state authorities during the Polish Crisis 1980-81. These key domestic actors adjusted their actions in response to the international context of the crisis. READ MORE

  4. 4. State Estimation for Distributed and Hybrid Systems

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Peter Alriksson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Joint Maximum a Posteriori Estimation; Sensor Networks; Distributed State Estimation; Networked Embedded Systems; Markov Jump Linear Systems; Sensor Scheduling;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with two aspects of recursive state estimation: distributed estimation and estimation for hybrid systems. In the first part, an approximate distributed Kalman filter is developed. Nodes update their state estimates by linearly combining local measurements and estimates from their neighbors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Models and Complexity Results in Real-Time Scheduling Theory

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pontus Ekberg; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Real-time systems; Scheduling theory; Task models; Computational complexity; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot inbyggda system; Computer Science with specialization in Embedded Systems;

    Abstract : When designing real-time systems, we want to prove that they will satisfy given timing constraints at run time. The main objective of real-time scheduling theory is to analyze properties of mathematical models that capture the temporal behaviors of such systems. READ MORE
