  1. 1. Partial Balayage and Related Concepts in Potential Theory

    Author : Joakim Roos; Henrik Shahgholian; Björn Gustafsson; Charles Smart; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Partial balayage; equilibrium measure; obstacle problem; divisible sandpile; Riemannian manifold; quadrature domain; Laplacian growth; mother body; Matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of three papers, all treating various aspects of the operation partial balayage from potential theory.The first paper concerns the equilibrium measure in the setting of two dimensional weighted potential theory, an important measure arising in various mathematical areas, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Traces of Mathematical Facts and Students’ Understanding of the Concept `Quadrilateral´ : An enquiry into young students’ communication

    Author : Eva Juhlin; Maria Johansson; Ewa Bergqvist; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Mathematics Education; Matematik och lärande;

    Abstract : Mathematics could be described as a special kind of language, a discourse in which participants communicate abstract concepts. Communication and language are known to be important factors in teaching and learning but little is known about neither communication between students in relation to geometrical concepts, nor what traces of mathematical facts and understanding is incorporated into their communication.

  3. 3. Group theoretical methods for solving multidimensional nonlinear partial differential equations

    Author : Marianna Euler; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematics; Matematik;

    Abstract : New methods for constructing both exact and approximate solutions of multidimensional nonlinear partial differential equations are developed. The basis of the methods is taken from the classical Lie transformation group theory. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pedagogic practice between tradition and renewal : A study of the new mathematics curriculum in Mozambique

    Author : Balbina Mutemba; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Mathematics Education; Matematik och lärande;

    Abstract : The new school mathematics curriculum in Mozambique, introduced in 2008, is partly competency-based and it advocates a more student-centred pedagogy. The most salient innovative features are the incorporation of mathematical competencies related to the development of students’ reasoning skills, including argumentation, justification and analytical thinking, and the use of heuristic or inductive methods that promote meaningful students’ participation.

  5. 5. Clarkson type inequalities and geometric properties of banach spaces

    Author : Anna Klisinska; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Matematik; Mathematics; Mathematics Education; Matematik och lärande;

    Abstract : In this thesis Clarkson's inequalities and their generalizations are the main tools. The technique that can be used to prove Clarkson type inequalities in more dimensions is shown. We also establish Clarkson type inequalities in general Banach spaces and point out the connections between Clarkson's inequalities and the concept of type and cotype. READ MORE
