    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; rebel groups; civil war; UN peacekeeping; non-state violence; splintering; fragmentation; formation; dynamics; Peace and Conflict Research; Freds- och konfliktforskning;

    Abstract : Civil wars are inherently complex and often feature a myriad of actors, whose interactions influence the intensity, duration and outcome of the conflict. The larger the number of actors involved in a conflict, the more complex it gets. READ MORE

  2. 2. Software Design Conflicts : Maintainability versus Performance and Availability

    Author : Daniel Häggander; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; object-oriented applications; design conflicts; performance; availability;

    Abstract : A major goal in software engineering is to reduce the cost of maintaining software systems. Finding design methods which make software more easily maintainable has thus been one of the most prioritized challenges during the past decade. While mainstream software design has concentrated on maintainability, other software disciplines e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evolutionary Resolutions of Conflicts with Mates and Offspring

    Author : Roger Härdling; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Clutch evolution; Arms race; Idothea baltica; Evolutionary conflicts; Sexual conflicts; Parent-offspring; Endosperm; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : In sexual conflicts and conflicts between parents and offspring, natural selection acts in different directions on the two sides. For example, males may be selected to achieve many mates, but female fitness may be maximised by monogamy. In this thesis I study the evolutionary outcome of these situations mainly by theoretical modelling. READ MORE

  4. 4. Violent natural resource conflicts : From definitions to prevention

    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Natural resource conflicts; natural resources; violent conflict; criticality; definition; predictive modelling; early warning; causal network; prevention; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : General scientific consensus is growing that natural resources play an important role in violent conflicts. Both scarcity and abundance contribute to violent conflict, depending on the socio-economic and political conditions at play. READ MORE

  5. 5. Conflicts in Information Ecosystems

    Author : Bengt Carlsson; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Multiagentsystem; Informationsekosystem; Spelteori; Antagonistiska grupper;

    Abstract : The main topic of this thesis concerns the study of how conflicting interests of software agents within an information ecosystem may cause cooperative behavior. Since such agents act on the behalf of their human owners, which often act in their own interest, this will sometimes result in malignant acts. READ MORE
