  1. 1. Effects of critical incidents on consumer satisfaction

    University dissertation from Karlstad University Studies

    Author : Margareta Friman; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psykologi; Psychology; Perceived service quality; Consumer satisfaction; Negative critical incidents; Affect; Public transport;

    Abstract : Satisfaction is assumed to be an important cause of attitude change by mediating between preexposure and postexposure attitudes. A number of factors account for whether one is satisfied or not with a specific product or service. One factor is expectations, another performance of the product or service, and a third disconfirmation of expectation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of Certainty on Decision Making under Uncertainty: using subsidies to reduce production of environmental harmful products

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Lars E Olsson; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; certainty; environmental; policy; experiment; individuel decision making; interdependent decision making; risk taking; subsidy; uncertainty;

    Abstract : The present thesis investigates the effects of an environmental policy, with the focus on producers’ decision making, which may be used as a means to decrease the production of environmentally harmful products. A subsidy system reimbursing a reduction in sales and/or production is with this aim experimentally investigated by simulating a market. READ MORE

  3. 3. Experimental studies of human-computer interaction : working memory and mental workload in complex cognition

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Department of Psychology

    Author : Erik Wästlund; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psykologi; Psychology; Information processing; Problem-solving; Working memory; ST-WM; LT-WM; Dual-task; Mental workload; Reading; Page layout; VDT; Convergent; Divergent;

    Abstract : Complex cognition is readily described as cognitive tasks requiring the coordination of multiple steps of processing or tasks exceeding short term memory capacity. Similarly, mental workload may be described as the use and temporary expenditure of a finite amount of information processing capacity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental Simulations of a Subsidy System to Reduce Production of Environmentally Harmful Products

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Lars E Olsson; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Competition; Dilemmas; Environmental policy; Experimental Subsidy Game; Interdependent decision making; Reference values;

    Abstract : The environment on earth is threatened by increasing trends in consumption and production causing the highest emission levels ever. Therefore, finding solutions targeting these trends are needed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Latex Colloid Dynamics in Complex Dispersions Fluorescence Microscopy Applied to Coating Color Model Systems

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Gunilla Carlsson; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Physical chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Fysikalisk kemi; Kemi; Chemistry; fluorescence microscopy; coating color; colloid; latex; diffusion; Brownian motion; film formation; polymer interaction;

    Abstract : Coating colors are applied to the base paper in order to maximize the performance of the end product. Coating colors are complex colloidal systems, mainly consisting of water, binders, and pigments. To understand the behavior of colloidal suspensions, an understanding of the interactions between its components is essential.. READ MORE
