  1. 1. Frame Analysis in Environmental Conflicts : The case of ethanol production in Brazil

    Author : Ester Galli; Ronald Wennersten; Tom Dwyer; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Brazil; biodiversity; biofuel; CO2 emissions; environmental conflict; ethanol; frame; frame analysis; land use change; sugarcane; sugarcane cutters; sustainable energy;

    Abstract : Governments and policy-makers are currently dealing with some key issues as energy security in countries dependent on oil imports; global economic development, including increased food production; and controlling global climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. The perception that biofuel could solve these challenges simultaneously has led to the implementation of policy and regulatory mechanisms on the mandatory use of biofuels, resulting in a sharp increase in biofuel production and consumption.

  2. 2. Climate change frames and frame formation : An analysis of climate change communication in the Swedish agricultural sector

    Author : Therese Asplund; Victoria Wibeck; Mattias Hjerpe; Knut H. Sørensen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Climate change communication; frame analysis; Swedish agriculture; farm magazines; focus groups; Klimatförändringar; kommunikation; frame analys; Svenskt lantbruk; lantbrukstidningar; fokusgrupper;

    Abstract : While previous research into understandings of climate change has usually examined general public perceptions and mainstream media representations, this thesis offers an audience-specific departure point by analysing climate change frames and frame formation in Swedish agriculture. The empirical material consists of Swedish farm magazines’ reporting on climate change, as well as eight focus group discussions among Swedish farmers on the topic of climate change and climate change information.

  3. 3. Linear and Non-linear Deformations of Stochastic Processes

    Author : Gustaf Strandell; Maciej Klimek; Richard Aron; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical analysis; Riesz bases and frames; Weakly stationary stochastic processes; Set-valued analysis; Matematisk analys; Mathematical analysis; Analys;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of three papers on the following topics in functional analysis and probability theory: Riesz bases and frames, weakly stationary stochastic processes and analysis of set-valued stochastic processes. In the first paper we investigate Uniformly Bounded Linearly Stationary stochastic processes from the point of view of the theory of Riesz bases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies of some Operators of Harmonic Analysis in certain Function Spaces with Applications to PDEs

    Author : Staffan Lundberg; Norway Narvik UiT The Arctic University of Norway Department of Computer Science and Computational Engineering Faculty of Science and Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Operators; Hardy Operators; Potential Operators; Singular Operators; Function Spaces; Morrey Spaces; H¨older Spaces; Partial Differential Equations; Inequalities; Hardy Type Inequalities; Weights; Applications; Matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : The study in this PhD thesis aims at development of certain mathematical methods used in applications, in particular, in the study of regularity properties of solutions in various mathematical models described by Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). To this end, we study various operators of harmonic analysis in certain function spaces, since solutions to many PDEs may be expressed in terms of such operators. READ MORE
