  1. 1. Atomistic modelling of functional solid oxides for industrial applications : Density Functional Theory, hybrid functional and GW-based studies

    Author : Cecilia Århammar; Rajeev Ahuja; Steven Louie; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; density functional theory; oxides; GW; Condensed matter physics; Kondenserade materiens fysik; Magnetism; Magnetism; Defects and diffusion; Defekter och diffusion;

    Abstract : In this Thesis a set of functional solid oxides for industrial applications have been addressed by first principles and thermodynamical modelling. More specificially, measurable quantities such as Gibbs free energy, geometry and electronic structure have been calculated and compared when possible with experimental data. READ MORE

  2. 2. Functional association networks for disease gene prediction

    Author : Dimitri Guala; Erik L L Sonnhammer; Hjalmar Brismar; Yves Moreau; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; network biology; biological networks; network prediction; functional association; functional coupling; network integration; functional association networks; genome-wide association networks; gene networks; protein networks; fret; functional enrichment analysis; network cross-talk; pathway annotation; gene prioritisation; network-based gene prioritization; benchmarking; Biochemistry towards Bioinformatics; biokemi med inriktning mot bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Mapping of the human genome has been instrumental in understanding diseasescaused by changes in single genes. However, disease mechanisms involvingmultiple genes have proven to be much more elusive. Their complexityemerges from interactions of intracellular molecules and makes them immuneto the traditional reductionist approach. READ MORE

  3. 3. Functional clustering methods and marital fertility modelling

    Author : Per Arnqvist; Sara Sjöstedt de Luna; Leif Nilsson; Helle Sørensen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; censoring; Coale-Trussell model; EM-algorithm; functional data analysis; functional clustering; marital fertility; normal approximation; Poisson process; varved lake sediments; warping; Mathematical Statistics; matematisk statistik;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of two parts.The first part considers further development of a model used for marital fertility, the Coale-Trussell's fertility model, which is based on age-specific fertility rates. A new model is suggested using individual fertility data and a waiting time after pregnancies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Probabilistic Modelling of Hearing : Speech Recognition and Optimal Audiometry

    Author : Svante Stadler; Arne Leijon; Stefan Stenfelt; KTH; []
    Keywords : auditory models; probabilistic modelling; speech modelling; human speech recognition; hearing aids; cochlear implants; psychoacoustics; diagnostic methods; optimal experiments; audiometry;

    Abstract : Hearing loss afflicts as many as 10\% of our population.Fortunately, technologies designed to alleviate the effects ofhearing loss are improving rapidly, including cochlear implantsand the increasing computing power of digital hearing aids. Thisthesis focuses on theoretically sound methods for improvinghearing aid technology. READ MORE

  5. 5. Theory and Modelling of Functional Materials

    Author : Vancho Kocevski; Jan Rusz; Christophe Delerue; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nanocrystals; graphene; alloys; density functional theory; optical properties; electronic properties; core-shell structures; semiconductors;

    Abstract : The diverse field of material research has been steadily expanding with a great help from computational physics, especially in the investigation of the fundamental properties of materials. This has driven the computational physics to become one of the main branches of physics, allowing for density functional theory (DFT) to develop as one of the cornerstones of material research.
