  1. 1. Commuting time choice and the value of travel time

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Jan-Erik Swärdh; Örebro universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Value of time; Value of travel time; Commuting; Commuting time changes; Value of commuting time; Register data; On-the-job search; Revealed preferences; Stated preferences; Hypothetical bias; Scheduling constraints; Relocations; Certainty calibration; Quantile regression; Mixed logit; Gender differences; SOCIAL SCIENCES Business and economics Economics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Ekonomi Nationalekonomi; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Economics; Nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : In the modern industrialized society, a long commuting time is becoming more and more common. However, commuting results in a number of different costs, for example, external costs such as congestion and pollution as well as internal costs such as individual time consumption. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dynamics and Extreme Value Problems for Moored Floating Platforms

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Yungang Liu; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics; mooring cable; floating platform; low-frequency; wave-frequency; convolution; extreme value; time-domain; frequency-domain; quasi-static;

    Abstract : This research deals with the dynamic response analyses and extreme value problems of moored floating platforms. It can be divided into three major subjects: first, the analysis of single cables and cable induced mooring damping; second, the dynamic analysis of the moored platforms, with special emphasis on the damping mechanisms and generation of the low-frequency excitation force time series; and third, the extreme wave-frequency responses and the combination of the low-frequency and wave-frequency extreme responses.

  4. 4. Characterisation and Some Statistical Aspects of Univariate and Multivariate Generalised Pareto Distributions

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Nader Tajvidi; Chalmers tekniska högskola Göteborgs universitet.; Chalmers University of Technology University of Gothenburg.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [1996]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MATEMATIK; MATHEMATICS; generalised Pareto distribution; multivariate extreme value theory; multivariate Pareto distribution; small sample properties; Bartlett s correction; maximum likelihood; statistical computations; simulation AMS 1991 subject classification: 62F11; 62E20; 60F17; 65U05;

    Abstract : Extreme value theory is about the distributions of very large or very small values in a time series or stochastic process. This has numerous applications connected with environmental science, civil engineering, materials science and insurance. A rather recent approach for modelling extreme events is the so called peak over threshold (POT) method. READ MORE

  5. 5. Increasing innovation capability of product-service systems through collaborative networks

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Johanna Wallin; Luleå tekniska universitet.; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Funktionella produkter; Functional Product Development; Innovation Capability; Product-Service System; Collaboration; Innovation network; Value; Measuring innovation;

    Abstract : Many manufacturing industries are undergoing a transition from manufacturing of products towards integrating more services into the traditional product concepts and provide product-service systems (PSS). Development of PSS changes the focus from the product to the functionality of the product; hence it can be referred to as functional product development. READ MORE
