  1. 1. The effects of indexing strategy-query term combination on retrieval effectiveness in a Swedish full text database

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Per Ahlgren; Högskolan i Borås.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; base word form index; full text retrieval; indexing strategies; inflected word form index; morphological analysis; normalization; Swedish; SWETWOL; truncation; user scenarios; informationsåtervinning; metodik; fulltextdatabaser; information retrieval; methodology; fulltext databases;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with Swedish full text retrieval and the problem of morphological variation of query terms in thedocument database. The study is an information retrieval experiment with a test collection. While no Swedish testcollection was available, such a collection was constructed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Statistical methods for register based studies with applications to stroke

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Anita Lindmark; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Registers; quality of care; socioeconomic status; hospital performance; stroke; mediation; sensitivity analysis; truncation; censoring; Statistics; statistik;

    Abstract : This thesis adds to the area of register based research, with a particular focus on health care quality and (in)equality. Contributions are made to the areas of hospital performance benchmarking, mediation analysis, and regression when the outcome variable is limited, with applications related to Riksstroke (the Swedish stroke register).

  3. 3. Count data modelling and tourism demand

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jörgen Hellström; Umeå universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Time series; Count data; INARMA; Unit root; Aggregation; Forecasting; Tourism; Truncation; Inflation; Simulated maximum likelihood; Bivariate hurdle model.;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four papers concerning modelling of count data and tourism demand. For three of the papers the focus is on the integer-valued autoregressive moving average model class (INARMA), and especially on the ENAR(l) model. READ MORE

  4. 4. On weak and strong convergence of numerical approximations of stochastic partial differential equations

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Fredrik Lindgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Additive noise; Cahn-Hilliard-Cook equation; Error estimate; Finite element; Hyperbolic equation; Parabolic equation; Rational approximation; Stochastic partial differential equation; Strong convergence; Truncation; Wiener process; Weak convergence;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with numerical approximation of linear stochastic partialdifferential equations driven by additive noise. In the first part, we develop aframework for the analysis of weak convergence and within this framework weanalyze the stochastic heat equation, the stochastic wave equation, and the linearizedstochastic Cahn-Hilliard, or the linearized Cahn-Hilliard-Cook equation.

  5. 5. Truncation and missing family links in population-based Registers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics

    Author : Monica Leu; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Left-trunction; Swedish Cancer Registry; MultiGeneration Register; family history; misclassification; simulation; Poplab;

    Abstract : Studies of familial aggregation of disease routinely use linked population registers to construct retrospective cohorts. Although such resources have provided numerous estimates of familial risk, little is known regarding the sensitivity of the estimates to assumed disease models and incompleteness of the data, such as truncation and/or missing family links.
