  1. 1. Microclimate at range margins : Consequences for boreal forest understory species

    Author : Caroline Greiser; Kristoffer Hylander; Johan Ehrlén; Eric Meineri; Miska Luoto; Alistair Jump; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; microclimate; species distribution; range dynamics; boreal forest; canopy cover; topography; soil moisture; air humidity; bryophytes; lichens; vascular plants; biotic interactions; forest management; biodiversity conservation; ekologi och evolution; Ecology and Evolution;

    Abstract : A warmer climate will shift species distributional range margins poleward, but near-ground microclimates may modify these shifts. Cold-adapted northern species at their rear edge may survive locally in microrefugia with a colder microclimate, and warm-adapted southern species at their leading edge may colonize stepping stone habitats with a warmer microclimate.

  2. 2. Random Geometry and Reinforced Jump Processes

    Author : Tuan-Minh Nguyen; Probability and Inference Theory Group; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; random polygons; products of random matrices; vertex-reinforced jump processes; pseudotrajectories; random walks in simplexes; Markov chains in a general state space;

    Abstract : This thesis comprises three papers studying several mathematical models related to geometric Markov processes and random processes with reinforcements. The main goal of these works is to investigate the dynamics as well as the limiting behaviour of the models as time goes to infinity, the existence of invariant measures and limiting distributions, the speed of convergence and other interesting relevant properties.

  3. 3. Acute Achilles tendon rupture - The impact of calf muscle performance on function and recovery

    Author : Annelie Brorsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Achilles tendon rupture; Rehabilitation; Heel-rise; Function; Recovery; Calf muscle; Ankle biomechanics; Endurance; Jump; Sex differences;

    Abstract : There is an ongoing debate about the optimal treatment for patients with an acute Achilles tendon rupture. The overall purpose of this thesis was to acquire a greater knowledge of the way patients recover at different time points after the injury when treated with the currently recommended treatment protocols.

    Abstract : This thesis treats a range of stochastic methods with various applications, most notably in finance. It is comprised of five articles, and a summary of the key concepts and results these are built on.The first two papers consider a jump-to-default model, which is a model where some quantity, e.g. READ MORE
