  1. 1. Model-Based Hypothesis Testing in Biomedicine How Systems Biology Can Drive the Growth of Scientific Knowledge

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Rikard Johansson; Gunnar Cedersund; Tomas Strömberg; Peter Strålfors; Marija Cvijovic; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; systems biology; modeling; ODE; hypothesis testing; falsificationism; insulin signaling; yeast; population heterogeneity; cell-to-cell variation; facilitation; pyramidal; synaptic; bootstrapping; personalized medicine; omics;

    Abstract : The utilization of mathematical tools within biology and medicine has traditionally been less widespread compared to other hard sciences, such as physics and chemistry. However, an increased need for tools such as data processing, bioinformatics, statistics, and mathematical modeling, have emerged due to advancements during the last decades. READ MORE

  2. 2. Predictive eyes precede retrieval visual recognition as hypothesis testing

    University dissertation from Umeå : Psykologi

    Author : Linus Holm; Timo Mäntylä; Lars Nyberg; David Melcher; [2007]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; declarative memory; face perception; object recognition; scene recognition; eye movements; visual awareness; recollection; familiarity; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi;

    Abstract : Does visual recognition entail verifying an idea about what is perceived? This question was addressed in the three studies of this thesis. The main hypothesis underlying the investigation was that visual recognition is an active process involving hypothesis testing. READ MORE

  3. 3. Testing and Applying Cointegration Analysis in Macroeconomics

    University dissertation from Department of Economics, Lund Universtiy

    Author : Åsa Eriksson; [2005]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; economic systems; economic theory; econometrics; Economics; Fiscal policy; Government consumption; Private consumption; Unemployment; Hypothesis testing; Wage formation; Panel cointegration; Cointegration analysis; ekonomisk teori; economic policy; Nationalekonomi; ekonomisk politik; ekonometri; ekonomiska system;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on empirical applications and tests of macroeconomic theories. It consists of three fairly distinct essays, bound together by the common theme of the use of cointegration analysis in the empirical macroeconomic analysis. The first chapter is an introductory chapter, while chapter two, three and four contain the three essays. READ MORE

  4. 4. Decentralized Hypothesis Testing in Sensor Networks

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Alla Tarighati; Joakim Jaldén; Pramod K. Varshney; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) play an important role in the future ofInternet of Things IoT systems, in which an entire physical infrastructurewill be coupled with communication and information technologies. Smartgrids, smart homes, and intelligent transportation systems are examples ofinfrastructure that will be connected with sensors for intelligent monitoringand management. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aspects of Moment Testing when p>n

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Zhizheng Wang; Thomas Holgersson; Miguel Fonseca; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; High-dimensional data; Asymptotic distribution; Kolmogorov condition; Monte Carlo simulation; Hypothesis testing; Skewness and kurtosis; Statistics Econometrics; Statistik;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the problem of statistical hypothesis testing for mean vector as well as testing for non-normality in a high-dimensional setting which is called the Kolmogorov condition. Since we consider mainly the first and the second moment in testing for mean vector and we utilize the third and the fourth moment in testing for non-normality, this thesis concerns a more general moment testing problem.
