  1. 1. People in Between : Ethncity and Material Identity, a New Approach to Deconstructed Concepts

    Author : Charlotta Hillerdal; Frands Herschend; Johan Rönnby; Neil Price; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; ethnicity; materiality; cultural identity; cultural practice; Viking Age; Varangians; Russia; Métis; Canada; colonialism; post-colonial; Romantic philosophy; indigenous; Ruhnu; Estonia; authenticity; national identity; Viking Age towns; Scandinavia; town formation; discontinuity; Archaeology; Arkeologi; arkeologi; Archaeology; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Abstract : In questions concerning ethnicity and cultural identity in prehistory, there is a great divide between the conclusions maintained on a theoretical level of discussion and the interpretations given to material remains, when these theories are practiced on the archaeological material. Inherited scientific and political structures, usage and ideas contribute to our understanding of ethnicity and the everyday use of the concept, and influence archaeological interpretations.

  2. 2. Construction of Adaptive Multistep Methods for Problems with Discontinuities, Invariants, and Constraints

    Author : Fatemeh Mohammadi; Numerisk analys; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; multistep methods; Initialization; beta-blocking; Discontinuity; Time adaptivity; Strong stability preserving; Differential algebraic equations;

    Abstract : Adaptive multistep methods have been widely used to solve initial value problems. These ordinary differential equations (ODEs) may arise from semi-discretization of time-dependent partial differential equations(PDEs) or may combine with some algebraic equations to represent a differential algebraic equations (DAEs).

  3. 3. Desire Lines : Towards a Queer Digital Media Phenomenology

    Author : Matilda Tudor; Stina Bengtsson; Sharif Mowlabocus; Södertörns högskola; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; digital media; queer; Russia; phenomenology; space; time; mobility; visibility; embodiment; discontinuity; Hornet; Growlr; VKontakte; Mamba; digitalt mediebruk; queer; Ryssland; fenomenologi; tid och rum; mobilitet; synlighet; kroppslighet; diskontinuitet; Hornet; Growlr; Vkontakte; Mamba; Kritisk kulturteori; Critical and Cultural Theory; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Abstract : This dissertation explores ways in which “queer digital media use” co-produces senses of space, time, and queer being in contemporary Russia. Considering the particular implications of (in)visibility for queer living, and the importance of compartmentalizing conflicting spheres, the study provides a grounded account of queer life lived with and through digital media in a context currently characterized by “anti-gay” sentiments.

  4. 4. On the Modelling of Fracture Using Strong Discontinuities

    Author : Martin Fagerström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : fracture; strong discontinuity; material forces; finite deformations; FEM;

    Abstract : The major concern of this work is the constitutive and numerical modelling of fracture,based on strong discontinuity formulations. More particularly, an extended finiteelement approach is used, where the total displacement is separated in two mutuallyindependent fields, representing the continuous and discontinuous displacement respectively.

  5. 5. Technological Discontinuities and Industrial Dynamics

    Author : Ellinor Ehrnberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; diffusion; radical innovation; bibliometrics; technological forecasting; patents; technological system; machine tools; technological discontinuity;

    Abstract : A technological discontinuity is a substantial change in the set of technological competences required to design and produce a product, often resulting in a significant change in the price/performance ratio of a product. Established firms often face severe difficulties in adjusting to a discontinuity. READ MORE
