    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psykologi; Psychology; Filosofi; Philosophy; latent semantic analysis LSA ; intentional stance; folk psychology; change blindness; verbal report; self-knowledge; extrospection; introspection; action; Choice blindness; intention;

    Abstract : This thesis is an empirical and theoretical exploration of the surprising finding that people often may fail to notice dramatic mismatches between what they want and what they get, a phenomenon my collaborators and I have named choice blindness. The thesis consists of four co-authored papers, dealing with different aspects of the phenomenon. READ MORE

  2. 2. Oil-related Particle Emissions from Diesel Engines

    Author : Petter Johansson; Sören Andersson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Diesel engine; Particle emissions; Particulate matter; PM; Lubrication oil; Inter-ring pressure; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : In recent decades much effort has gone into reducing particle emissions in the exhaust gases of heavy-duty diesel engines. Engine development has now reached the stage where it is worth to put heavy focus on the contribution of lubricating oil to particulate emissions in order to further reduce these emissions.

  3. 3. A Silent Revolution : The Swedish Transition towards Heat Pumps, 1970-2015

    Author : Petter Johansson; Pär Blomkvist; Martin Vendel; Eric Giertz; Mats Fridlund; KTH; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; heat pumps; socio-technical transition; sustainability transition; industrial dynamics; value networks; coopetition; complementarities; strategic management; värmepumpar; socio-tekniska övergångar; hållbarhet; industriell dynamik; värdenätverk; coopetition; komplementariteter; företagsstrategi; Industrial Economics and Management; Industriell ekonomi och organisation;

    Abstract : Currently, more than half of all Swedish single-family houses have an installed heat pump and more heat is supplied by heat pumps in Sweden than in any other nation. Despite the enormous impact of heat pumps on the Swedish energy system, the transition towards their use has gone relatively unnoticed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular Processes in Dynamic Wetting : Du som saknar dator/datorvana kan kontakta Cathrine Bergh, [email protected] för information

    Author : Petter Johansson; Berk Hess; Erik Lindahl; Guillaume Galliero; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; contact lines; nanodroplets; computational physics; molecular dynamics; fluid dynamics; multi-phase flows; electrowetting; Biologisk fysik; Biological Physics;

    Abstract : The spreading of liquids onto and over surfaces is a fundamental process in nature. It is present in all forms and sizes: From rivers carving through landscapes, to our blood stream transporting nutrients to cells, and even single water molecules moving through channels into these cells.

  5. 5. On the topology of the coamoeba

    Author : Petter Johansson; Håkan Samuelsson; Eva Maria Feichtner; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Coamoeba; Ronkin function; matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : In this thesis we study the topology and geometry of the coamoeba of an algebraic variety V. The strategy that we use is to relate the coamoebas corresponding to the initial varieties of V to the coamoeba of V. We also define an analogue of the Ronkin function for the coamoeba and give an explicit formula for it.. READ MORE
