  1. 1. Industrial Ecology Approaches to Improve Metal Management : Three Modeling Experiments

    Author : Rajib Sinha; Björn Frostell; Maria Malmström; Amir Rashid; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; system dynamics; element flow analysis; industrial ecology; product systems; end-of-life; DPSIR; pressure-based driver-oriented approach; environmental management; Industrial Ecology; Industriell ekologi;

    Abstract : A linear model of consumption − produce-use-dispose − has constantly increased the pressure on the environment in recent decades. There has been a great belief that technology will solve the problem, but in many cases it is only partly contributing to the solution. For a full solution, the root causes of problems need to be identified. READ MORE

  2. 2. Miniaturised Microwell-based Cell Assays

    Author : Emilie Weibull; Helene Andersson Svahn; Albert van den Berg; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; microwell; miniaturisation; high-resolution imaging; high-throughput; cell culture; single-cell; clone; heterogeneity; antibiotic susceptibility testing; concentration gradient; interfacing; microchannels; cell retrieval;

    Abstract : Cell heterogeneity in genetically identical cell populations is becoming a well-known and important phenomenon in cell biology. Current methods commonly utilise population-based analysis founded on averaged result. Hence there is a need for high-throughput cell assays on the single-cell level. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards Correct and Efficient Program Execution in Decentralized Networks: Programming Languages, Semantics, and Resource Management

    Author : Karl Palmskog; Mads Dam; Rocco De Nicola; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; distributed objects; decentralization; implementation correctness; network protocols; object mobility; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : The Internet as of 2014 connects billions of devices, and is expected to connect tens of billions by 2020. To meet escalating requirements, networks must be scalable, easy to manage, and be able to efficiently execute programs and disseminate data. The prevailing use of centralized systems and control in, e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Entrepreneurship at the limits

    Author : Lena Olaison; Daniel Hjorth; Bent Meier Sørensen; Denmark Copenhagen Business School; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Ledarskap; entreprenörskap och organisation; Ledarskap; entreprenörskap och organisation;

    Abstract : This PhD dissertation is based on four published articles. It operates within the processual view of entrepreneurship studies (Steyaert, 1997), which draws on process philosophy to develop research strategies (Sørensen, 2005). The research has been guided by two strategies for understanding entrepreneurship: ‘moving’ (e.g. READ MORE

  5. 5. Horizontal Slot Waveguides for Silicon Photonics Back-End Integration

    Author : Maziar A. M. Naiini; Mikael Östling; Jörge Schulze; KTH; []
