  1. 1. Resilience in High Risk Work Analysing Adaptive Performance

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Amy Rankin; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Resilience Engineering; Safety Management; Adaptive Capacity; Improvisation;

    Abstract : In today’s complexsocio-technical systems it is not possible to foresee and prepare for allfuture events. To cope with the intricacy and coupling between people,technical systems and the dynamic environment people are required tocontinuously adapt. READ MORE

  2. 2. Uncertain Futures - Adaptive capacities to climate variability and change in the Lake Victoria Basin

    University dissertation from Lund University Centre for Sustainability Science

    Author : Sara Gabrielsson; [2012]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; adaptive capacities; climate vulnerability; collective action; Lake Victoria Basin; smallholder farmers; sustainable adaptation; sustainability science.;

    Abstract : The Lake Victoria basin (LVB) in East Africa can be considered a climate change hotspot because of its large rural population dependent on rain-fed farming. Drawing on extensive fieldwork (2007-2011) in rural communities along the shores of Lake Victoria in Kenya and Tanzania, I explore adaptive capacities to climate variability and change and discuss how they interrelate in situ.

  3. 3. On MIMO Systems and Adaptive Arrays for Wireless Communication Analysis and Practical Aspects

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Signaler och System

    Author : Mattias Wennström; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Systemteknik; antenna array; calibration; MIMO system; flat fading; non-linear amplifier; switched parasitic antenna; analog beamformer; adaptive antenna testbed; Systemteknik; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Systems engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Systemteknik; Signal Processing; signalbehandling;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with the use of multiple antenna elements in wireless communication over frequency non-selective radio channels. Both measurement results and theoretical analysis are presented. New transmit strategies are derived and compared to existing transmit strategies, such as beamforming and space-time block coding (STBC). READ MORE

  4. 4. Adaptive capacity for social and environmental change The role of networks in Chile’s small-scale fisheries

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University

    Author : Andrés Marín; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; artisanal; benthic; Chile; coastal areas; collaborative management; disasters; ecosystem services; hazards; livelihoods; post-disaster; QCA; recovery; TURFs; Análisis Cualitativo Comparativo; artesanal; bentónico; Chile; desastres; manejo colaborativo; medios de vida; peligros; post desastre; recuperación; servicios ecosistémicos; zonas costeras; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling; Sustainability Science;

    Abstract : World’s small-scale fisheries (SSF) face permanent and increasing external changes and shocks that challenge their viability and potential as an engine of human sustainable development. It is broadly assumed and expected that fishers and their communities have the capacity to adapt to current and future social and ecological changes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Efficient Coding Techniques for Networks & Channels with Transmission Errors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University

    Author : Ming Xiao; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Channels with Errors; Low-Density Generation-Matrix Codes; Sink Bit Error Probability; Continuous Phase Modulation; Maximum-Likelihood Decoding; Cross-Layer Design; Network Coding; Ring Convolutional Codes; Adaptive Codes.; Deterministic Rateless Codes;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of two parts, both of whichinvestigate coding techniques for information transmission throughchannels in the presence of errors. Part I discusses topics ofnetwork coding and rateless codes. Part~II considers channel codesfor continuous phase modulation. These two parts are clearlydifferent, but they are also related. READ MORE
