  1. 1. Modeling Organizational Dynamics Distributions, Networks, Sequences and Mechanisms

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Sociology, Stockholm University

    Author : Hernan Mondani; Fredrik Liljeros; Rickard Sandell; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; organizational dynamics; social organizing; organizational change; modeling; organizational growth; process stability; labor flow network; employment trajectories; heavy-tailed distributions; complex network analysis; sequence analysis; agent-based modeling; sociophysics; Sociology; sociologi;

    Abstract : The study of how social organizations work, change and develop is central to sociology and to our understanding of the social world and its transformations. At the same time, the underlying principles of organizational dynamics are extremely difficult to investigate. READ MORE

  3. 3. Kalman Filters for Nonlinear Systems and Heavy-Tailed Noise

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Michael Roth; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis is on filtering in state space models. First, we examine approximate Kalman filters for nonlinear systems, where the optimal Bayesian filtering recursions cannot be solved exactly. These algorithms rely on the computation of certain expected values. READ MORE

  4. 4. Moment Estimation Using Extreme Value Methods

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Joachim Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Pareto distribution; mean estimation; heavy tailed distributions; telecommunication; m -dependence; superpopulation sampling; peaks over threshold;

    Abstract : The thesis is composed of three papers, all dealing with the application of extreme value methods to the problem of moment estimation for heavy-tailed distributions. In Paper A, an asymptotically normally distributed estimate for the expected value of a positive random variable with infinite variance is introduced. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Principle of Scaling of Geographic Space and its Application in Urban Studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Xintao Liu; KTH.; Högskolan i Gävle.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; geographic space; scaling; GIScience; VGI; OSM; heavy-tailed distribution; the head tail division rule; space syntax; nature street; urban sprawl; floating car data; hierarchical spatial structure;

    Abstract : Geographic space is the large-scale and continuous space that encircles the earth and in which human activities occur. The study of geographic space has drawn attention in many different fields and has been applied in a variety of studies, including those on cognition, urban planning and navigation systems. READ MORE
