1. TwoBarrier Problems in Applied Probability: Algorithms and Analysis
University dissertation from Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Lund UniversityAbstract : This thesis consists of five papers (AE). 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 $x0. We define the loss rate due to the reflection. READ MORE

2. On unequal probability sampling designs
University dissertation from Umeå : Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, Umeå UniversityAbstract : The main objective in sampling is to select a sample from a population in order to estimate some unknown population parameter, usually a total or a mean of some interesting variable. When the units in the population do not have the same probability of being included in a sample, it is called unequal probability sampling. READ MORE

3. Analysis and Modelling of Mineral and Element Composition in Compression Breakage
University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskolaAbstract : The outstanding properties of tungsten and tantalum make them valuable metals and, in some cases, irreplaceable in applications. The growing interest due to the high economic importance and the limited supply places these metals in the critical metals risk list. READ MORE

4. System identification of largescale linear and nonlinear structural dynamicmodels
University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskolaAbstract : System identification is a powerful technique to build a model from measurement data by using methods from different fields such as stochastic inference, optimization and linear algebra. It consists of three steps: collecting data, constructing a mathematical model and estimating its parameters. READ MORE

5. Markov Chains, Renewal, Branching and Coalescent Processes Four Topics in Probability Theory
University dissertation from Stockholm : Matematiska institutionenAbstract : This thesis consists of four papers.In paper 1, we prove central limit theorems for Markov chains under (local) contraction conditions. As a corollary we obtain a central limit theorem for Markov chains associated with iterated function systems with contractive maps and placedependent Dinicontinuous probabilities. READ MORE
