  1. 1. Search-Based Prediction of Software Quality : Evaluations and Comparisons

    Author : Wasif Afzal; IS (Embedded Systems); []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Software verification and validation (V&V) activities are critical for achieving software quality; however, these activities also constitute a large part of the costs when developing software. Therefore efficient and effective software V&V activities are both a priority and a necessity considering the pressure to decrease time-to-market and the intense competition faced by many, if not all, companies today.

  2. 2. Equity in welfare evaluations : the rationale for and effects of distributional weighting

    Author : Gunnel Bångman; Lars Hultkrantz; Fredrik Carlsson; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; weighted cost-benefit analysis; equity; distributional weights; social welfare; income distribution; risk aversion; social marginal value of income; altruism; paternalism; marginal utility of income; social inequality aversion; stated preferences; Economics; Nationalekonomi; Economics; Nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the issue of weighted cost-benefit analysis (WCBA). WCBA is a welfare evaluation model where income distribution effects are valued by distributional weighting. The method was developed already in the 1970s. The interest in and applications of this method have increased in the past decade, e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Conventional, microfilled and hybrid composite resins : laboratory and clinical evaluations

    Author : Jan W. V. van Dijken; Torild Ericson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; composite resin; caries; gingivitis;

    Abstract : Three types of composite resins, classified as conventional, microfilled and hybrid resins were compared with respect to surface characteristics, effect on the gingival margin, marginal adaptation and clinical durability in anterior cavities.The surface characteristics were studied in in vitro systems by means of scanning electron microscopy.

  4. 4. Empirical Evaluations of Semantic Aspects in Software Development

    Author : Martin Blom; Anna Brunström; Per Runeson; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Empirical Evaluations; Semantic Aspects; Software Development; Software; Controlled Experiment; Industrial Case Study; Computer science; Datavetenskap; Datavetenskap; Computer Science;

    Abstract : This thesis presents empirical research in the field of software development with a focus on handling semantic aspects. There is a general lack of empirical data in the field of software development. This makes it difficult for industry to choose an appropriate method for their particular needs. READ MORE

    Abstract : Dredging activities at ports and harbors are inevitable for safe navigation of ships and vessels. The outcomes of dredging are huge volumes of dredged materials, which can range from very fine and contaminated sediments to sands and gravels. The coarse sands and gravels can be directly used in civil engineering applications. READ MORE
