  1. 1. Thinking beyond the Cure a constructive design research investigation into the patient experience of radiotherapy

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Tara Mullaney; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; constructive design research; patient experience of radiotherapy; actor networks; design experiments; composite methodology; mixed-methods; prototyping; design research; research through design;

    Abstract : This constructive design research dissertation aims to understand how design can be used as part of a composite research approach to generate knowledge about how complex phenomena are composed through their interactions and relationships with various actors, both human and non-human. It has done this by investigating a single phenomenon, the patient experience of radiotherapy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Source Language of Lexical Transfer in Multilingual Learners A Mixed Methods Approach

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of English, Stockholm University

    Author : Hannah Neuser; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; multilingualism; third language acquisition; lexical transfer; crosslinguistic influence; modal differences; proficiency; recency; exposure; psychotypology; L2 status; transferability; markedness; lexical organization; activation; lexical access; English; engelska;

    Abstract : The study reported in this thesis investigates the source language of lexical transfer in multilingual learners using a mixed methods approach. Previous research has shown that the source language of crosslinguistic influence can be related to factors such as proficiency, recency/exposure, psychotypology, the L2 status, and item-specific transferability.

  3. 3. Adaptive variational multiscale methods

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Axel Målqvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; finite element method; Galerkin; duality; a posteriori error estimation; adaptivity; variational multiscale method; mixed formulation; multi-physics; oil reservoir simulation;

    Abstract : In this thesis we present a new adaptive multiscale method for solving elliptic partial differential equations. The method is based on numerical solution of decoupled local fine scale problems on patches. READ MORE

  4. 4. An Empirical Investigation of the Harmfulness of Architectural Technical Debt

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Terese Besker; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Software Engineering; Morale; Mixed-methods; Software Architecture; Empirical Research; Software Quality; Software Developing Productivity; Technical Debt;

    Abstract : Background: In order to survive in today's fast-growing and ever fast-changing business environments, large-scale software companies need to deliver customer value continuously, both from a short- and long-term perspective. However, the consequences of potential long-term and far-reaching negative effects of shortcuts and quick fixes made during the software development lifecycle, described as Technical Debt (TD), can impede the software development process.
