  1. 1. The Vicissitudes of Corruption : Degeneration - transgression - jouissance

    Author : Thomas Taro Lennerfors; Claes Gustafsson; Thomas Polesie; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industrial organisation; administration and economics; Industriell organisation; administration och ekonomi;

    Abstract : In a time when corruption is receiving increasing media coverage and when many claim to wage a war on corruption, this book brings up the need for a problematisation and an increased understanding of the different manifestations – the vicissitudes – of corruption and also what measures are taken against it. The book advances the claim that corruption is tightly related to modernity and particularly to a transgression of the public / private dichotomy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exercise and angiogenic growth factors in human skeletal muscle

    Author : Thomas Gustafsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Adapatation; angiogenesis; angiogenic growth factors; blood flow; gene expression; gene regulation; human; ischaemia; skeletal muscle; training;

    Abstract : Long-term electrical stimulation and endurance exercise increase the amount of capillaries in skeletal muscle. VEGF-A is a well-characterized stimulatory angiogenic growth factor and has shown to play an important role in angiogenesis in pathological conditions in humans and in physiological conditions in animal models.

  3. 3. Modelling and control of rotary crane systems

    Author : Thomas Gustafsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the modelling and control of rotary crane systems. The goal is to design a control system that assists the operator to move a cargo without oscillations and to correctly align the cargo at the final position. READ MORE

  4. 4. Regulation and actions of insulin-like growth factor binding proteins in vascular smooth muscle cells

    Author : Thomas Gustafsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) has multiple actions on vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMCs) function. In the circulation and in extracellular fluids, IGF-I is complexed to high affinity IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs), which modulate IGF-I bioactivity. The present study focused on expression and regulation of IGFBPs in VSMCs. READ MORE

  5. 5. Maintaining data consistency in embedded databases for vehicular systems

    Author : Thomas Gustafsson; Jörgen Hansson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Engine control software; real-time; embedded applications; metainformation; algorithms; Performance evaluations; HP2PL; OCC; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : The amount of data handled by real-time and embedded applications is increasing. This calls for data-centric approaches when designing embedded systems, where data and its metainformation (e.g., temporal correctness requirements) are stored centrally. READ MORE
