  1. 1. Dynamic Interactions : National Political Parties, Voters and European Integration

    Author : Johan Hellström; Svante Ersson; Mikko Mattila; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Euroscepticism; European integration; dynamic representation; panel data; party positions; political parties; public opinion; voters; Political science; Statsvetenskap; statskunskap; political science;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of an introduction and four self-contained papers, designated I-IV, which extend previous research on national political parties and voters in Western Europe. More specifically, the issues addressed are parties’ positions and voters’ opinions on European integration and their dynamic interactions, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Factor Analytical Approach to Dynamic Panel Data Models

    Author : Milda Norkute; Nationalekonomiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Dynamic panel data models; Factor analytical method; Bias; Incidental trends; MA errors; Factor-GMM;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the development and application of new estimation approaches based on factor analysis for estimation and inference in dynamic panel data models with fixed-effects. A new factor analytical method (FA) for the estimation of fixed-effects dynamic panel data models is proposed in Bai ("Fixed-Effects Dynamic Panel Models, A Factor Analytical Method". READ MORE

  4. 4. Dynamic Characteristics of Floating Breakwaters

    Author : Aurora Xiaomeng Lei; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : floating breakwaters; couplings joints ; dynamic cables; dynamic response; line tension; wave attenuation; wave reflection;

    Abstract : The dynamic behaviour of interconnected floating breakwaters has been studied theoretically and experimentally. For this type of shore-protection system, problems that must be dealt with include wave loads on the breakwaters caused by the interaction between the bodies and the waves, motions of the moored breakwaters caused by the waves, changed wave fields in front of and behind the breakwaters, and forces on the mooring cables and in interconnections between breakwater units.

  5. 5. Empirical Essays on Railway Infrastructure Costs in Sweden

    Author : Mats Andersson; Lars-Göran Mattsson; John Preston; KTH; []
    Keywords : Railways; Infrastructure; Marginal Costs; Maintenance; Renewal; Econometrics; Panel Data; Survival Analysis; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The subject of this thesis concerns pricing the use of transport infrastructure. We are empirically investigating the relationship between railway traffic volumes and infrastructure management costs. More specifically, we are interested in estimating the change in infrastructure management costs from marginal variations in traffic volumes, i.e. READ MORE
