  1. 1. Collision Avoidance Theory with Application to Automotive Collision Mitigation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Jonas Jansson; Fredrik Gustafsson; Jonas Ekmark; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Avoiding collisions is a crucial issue in most transportation systems as well as in many other applications. The task of a collision avoidance system is to track objects of potential collision risk and determine any action to avoid or mitigate a collision. This thesis presents theory for tracking and decision making in collision avoidance systems. READ MORE

  3. 3. Kinetic modelling of runaways in plasmas

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Ola Embréus; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; runaway; Fokker-Planck equation; tokamak; Boltzmann equation; positrons; bremsstrahlung; plasma; synchrotron radiation;

    Abstract : The phenomenon of runaway occurs in plasmas in the presence of a strong electric field, when the accelerating force overcomes the collisional friction acting on the charged particles moving through the plasma. Electron runaway is observed in both laboratory and space plasmas, and is of great importance in fusion-energy research, where the energetic electrons can damage the plasma-facing components of fusion reactors.
