  1. 1. Escalation: Explorative studies of high-risk situations from the theoretical perspectives of complexity and joint cognitive systems

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Johan Bergström; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; escalation; resilience engineering; crisis; emergency; patient safety; simulation; complexity; joint cognitive systems;

    Abstract : The main aim of the research is to explore different aspects of organisational resilience in escalating situations, with an investigation of both theoretical and practical implications. From the platform of an explorative approach, this study makes use of naturalistic research in the domain of health care and experimental simulation studies, in order to establish a broad theoretical framework vis-à-vis the processes of escalation.

  2. 2. The Onset of Ethnic War as a Bargaining Process : Testing a Signaling Model

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för freds- och konfliktforskning

    Author : Magnus Öberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Peace and conflict research; ethnic conflict; civil war; escalation; bargaining; game theory; signaling; selection bias; Freds- och konfliktforskning; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Political science Peace and conflict research; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Statsvetenskap Freds- och konfliktforskning; Peace and Conflict Research; freds- och konfliktforskning;

    Abstract : Most theories of ethnic conflict explain ethnic war by reference to the factors that motivate and enable ethnic groups to rebel. To rebel is to rise up against or challenge government authority; but for war to be the outcome of a challenge the government must attempt to forcefully reassert its authority. READ MORE

  4. 4. CT Urography Efforts to Reduce the Radiation Dose

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pär Dahlman; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Urinary tract malignancy; renal cell carcinoma; urography; x-ray computed tomography; radiation dosage; dose escalation; hematuria diagnosis; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Radiological research Diagnostic radiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Radiologisk forskning Diagnostisk radiologi; Radiology; Radiologi;

    Abstract : Computed tomography urography (CTU) is today the imaging method used to investigate patients with suspected urinary tract malignancy, replacing the old imaging method intravenous pyelography (IVP) about a decade ago. The downside of this shift was that the effective radiation dose to the examined patient was eight times higher for CTU compared to IVP. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis of High-Frequency Electrical Transients in Offshore Wind Parks

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tarik Abdulahovic; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transient overvoltage; restrikes; very fast transient; voltage escalation; prestrikes; surge protection; surge; breaker;

    Abstract : In this thesis, a study of high frequency electromagnetic transient phenomena is performed. Models of various components needed for simulations of high frequency transients, such as for transformers, cables and breakers are developed. READ MORE
