  2. 2. Radioluminescence A simple model for fluorescent layers

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Jan Lindström; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Extrinsic efficiency; extinction factor; radioluminescence; modelling; Monte Carlo; optical attenuation; optimisation; particle size; phosphor; scintillator; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to present a simple model for the radiation to light conversion processes in fluorescent layers as an aid in future developments and applications. Optimisation between sensitivity and spatial resolution for fluorescent layers in digital radiology is a delicate task where the extrinsic efficiency for various phosphors needs to be established for varying parameters.

  3. 3. Pricing capability development and its antecedents

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Linn Andersson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Pricing capability; Value appropriation; Organizational capabilities; Managerial decision making; Governance structure; Pricing strategy;

    Abstract : Previous studies have convincingly argued that firms’ ability to efficiently utilize their resources is linked to the effectiveness of their routines and resources for pricing. The ability to appropriate value and achieve a more efficient resource utilization relative to competitors through routines and resources for pricing has been named pricing capability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Principal Word Vectors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ali Basirat; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; word; context; word embedding; principal component analysis; PCA; sparse matrix; singular value decomposition; SVD; entropy;

    Abstract : Word embedding is a technique for associating the words of a language with real-valued vectors, enabling us to use algebraic methods to reason about their semantic and grammatical properties. This thesis introduces a word embedding method called principal word embedding, which makes use of principal component analysis (PCA) to train a set of word embeddings for words of a language.
