  1. 1. Ecological embedding : stories of back-to-the-land ecopreneurs and energy descent

    Abstract : This thesis starts with the premise that to address ecological and climate crises, we need to understand their psychological and cultural roots found in the separation of modern societies from the natural world. This separation permeates mainstream approaches to sustainability that either sustain business-as-usual of the unbridled economic growth, or reform it with greener markets and technologies.

  2. 2. Opportunity creation as a mixed embedding process : A study of immigrant entrepreneurs in Sweden

    Author : Quang V. D. Evansluong; Caroline Wigren-Kristoferson; Marcela Ramirez-Pasillas; Monder Ram; Jönköping University; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; immigrant entrepreneurship; opportunity creation; entrepreneurial opportunity; social integration; Sweden; mixed embeddedness; mixed embedding; företagsekonomi; Business Studies; immigrant entrepreneurship; Social integration; sweden;

    Abstract : Entrepreneurial opportunities are frequently noted and addressed in the literature of immigrant entrepreneurship; however, little is known about how these entrepreneurial opportunities come into existence and how immigrant entrepreneurs create such opportunities. The purpose of this thesis is to examine why and how immigrant entrepreneurs create entrepreneurial opportunities through embedding processes in the home country and the host country. READ MORE

  3. 3. Theoretical Description of Electronic Transitions in Large Molecular Systems in the Optical and X-Ray Regions

    Author : Nanna Holmgaard List; Jacob Kongsted; Hans Jørgen Aagaard Jensen; Roberto Cammi; Jeppe Olsen; Jens Oddershede; Denmark University of Southern Denmark Chemistry and Biology Department of Physics; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polarizable embedding; multiscale modeling; localized electronic transitions; response theory; QM MM; damped linear response; non-dipolar effects; light-matter interactions; multipole expansion; embedding potentials; local field effects; fluorescent proteins; computational chemistry; MCSCF; Teoretisk kemi och biologi; Theoretical Chemistry and Biology;

    Abstract : The size and conformational complexity of proteins and other large systems represent major challenges for today's methods of quantum chemistry.This thesis is centered around the development of new computational tools to gain molecular-level insight into electronic transitions in such systems.

  4. 4. Towards a multiconfigurational description of the electronic structure in solids

    Author : Ernst Dennis Larsson; Teoretisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Embedding; Solids; Ionic; ab-initio model potentials; multiconfigurational quantum chemistry; SCEPIC;

    Abstract : Materials of ionic crystals are ubiquitous in industrial chemistry.For example, materials such as cerium dioixde (CeO2) are used in both self-cleaning ovens and to clean exhaust fumes from cars.Other materials, such as titanium dioixde (TiO2) has been used in the solar-cell industry.So-called garnets are used in several lasers.

  5. 5. Immersions and their self intersections

    Author : Tobias Ekholm; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Mathematics; Regular homotopy; generic immersion; finite order invariant; Vassiliev invariant; self intersection; diffeotopy; framing; spin structure; pin structure; embedding; Seifert surface; linking; 24; MATEMATIK; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : Regular homotopy classes of immersions of the k-dimensional sphere Sk into (k + n)-dimensional Euclidean space Rk+n are known to form finitely generated Abelian groups. It is known how to calculate the regular homotopy class of a generic immersion Sk → R2k in terms of its self intersection. READ MORE
