  1. 1. Microeconomic Policy for Development: Essays on Trade and Environment, Poverty and Education

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Miguel Quiroga; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; absenteeism; aggregation bias; comparative advantage; decomposition analysis; education; environmental endowment; environmental regulation; factor content; geography; hyperbolic discounting; living standards; mandatory attendance; non-homothetic preferences; pollution haven; Porter hypothesis; poverty; present-biased preferences; teaching; time-inconsistent preferences; trade;

    Abstract : Abstracts This thesis contains three papers analyzing different issues. Paper 1: “Do Countries with Lax Environmental Regulations Have a Comparative Advantage in Polluting Industries?” We study whether lax environmental regulations induce comparative advantages, causing the least-regulated countries to specialize in polluting industries.

    Abstract : Essay 1 studies the household's decision to supply labor and tests if the so-called unitary model holds. What is subject to a test is the resulting symmetry of the Slutsky matrix, i.e., that the compensated cross-wage effects are equal. READ MORE

  3. 3. Protein folding without loops and charges

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Martin Kurnik; Stockholms universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein folding; folding cooperativity; protein aggregation; protein charges; protein engineering; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Going down the folding funnel, proteins may sample a wide variety of conformations, some being outright detrimental to the organism. Yet, the vast majority of polypeptide molecules avoid such pitfalls. Not only do they reach the native minimum of the energy landscape; they do so via blazingly fast, biased, routes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Information, Voting Behavior and Electoral Accountability

  5. 5. Linearity Enhancements of Receiver Front-end Circuits for Wireless Communication

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of Economics

    Author : Mohammed Abdulaziz; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016-04-25]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CMOS; receivers; operational transconductance amplifiers; filtering; channel select filters; stability; low noise amplifiers; linearization; carrier aggregation; spectrum sensing;

    Abstract : Technology scaling in advanced CMOS nodes has been very successful in reducing the cost and increasing the operating frequency, however, it has also resulted in reduced transistor intrinsic gain and increased thermal noise coefficient, and most importantly, deteriorated linearity performance. At the same time, advanced wireless communication standards offer ever increasing data rates and pose more stringent requirements on coexistence, leading to very stringent linearity requirements.
