  1. 1. Microkinetic Modeling of Nanoparticle Catalysis using Density Functional Theory

    Author : Mikkel Jørgensen; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Density Functional Theory; Methane oxidation; Mean-field approximation; Microkinetic modeling; Kinetic Monte Carlo; Nanoparticles; Entropy; CO oxidation; Catalysis;

    Abstract : Heterogeneous catalysis is vitally important to modern society, and one path towardsrational catalyst design is through atomistic scale understanding. The atomistic scalecan be linked to macroscopic observables by microkinetic models based on first-principlescalculations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mathematical Models in Cellular Biophysics

    Author : Jacob Kowalewski; Hjalmar Brismar; Erik Fransén; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Calcium oscillations; Diffusion; Dopamine receptors; Mathematical models; Computer simulations; FRAP; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Cellular biophysics deals with, among other things, transport processes within cells. This thesis presents two studies where mathematical models have been used to explain how two of these processes occur. Cellular membranes separate cells from their exterior environment and also divide a cell into several subcellular regions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cenozoic landscape evolution in northern Sweden : Geomorphological interpretation within a GIS-framework

    Author : Karin Ebert; Clas Hättestrand; Paul Bishop; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Long-term geomorphology; northern Sweden; base-level surface; inselbergs; digital elevation models; field observations; Physical geography; Naturgeografi; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : The large-scale bedrock landscape in northern Sweden has a complex evolution history of planation, uplift, transgression, burial, weathering, and erosion. The aim of this thesis is to examine the long-term development of the area. Terms for base-level surfaces in the area are defined. READ MORE

  5. 5. Models in Neutrino Physics : Numerical and Statistical Studies

    Abstract : The standard model of particle physics can excellently describe the vast majorityof data of particle physics experiments. However, in its simplest form, it cannot account for the fact that the neutrinos are massive particles and lepton flavorsmixed, as required by the observation of neutrino oscillations. READ MORE
