  1. 1. Inferring evolution in bacteria using Markov chains and genomic signatures

    Author : Daniel Dalevi; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Prediction suffix tree; Markov chains; Molecular evolution; Bioinformatics; Gene order rearrangements; Horizontal gene transfer; Variable length Markov chains;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the development of methods and models in evolutionary molecular biology. The techniques are also applicable to other similar biological problems. The first contribution is a novel classifier using fixed and variable length Markov chains that can discriminate between bacterial DNA of different species. READ MORE

  2. 2. Rainflow Analysis of Switching Markov Loads

    Author : Pär Johannesson; Matematisk statistik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; actuarial mathematics; programming; operations research; Statistics; rainflow matrix; fatigue; vehicle load; hidden Markov model; random load; Markov model; Switching process; Statistik; operationsanalys; programmering; aktuariematematik;

    Abstract : Rainflow cycles are often used in fatigue analysis of materials for describing the variability of applied loads. Therefore, an important characteristic of a random load process is the intensity of rainflow cycles, also called the expected rainflow matrix (RFM), which can be used for evaluation of the fatigue life.

  4. 4. Markov Chains, Renewal, Branching and Coalescent Processes : Four Topics in Probability Theory

    Author : Andreas Nordvall Lagerås; Thomas Höglund; Ingemar Kaj; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical statistics; Matematisk statistik; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : 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 place-dependent Dini-continuous probabilities. READ MORE
