    Abstract : This doctoral thesis provides a comprehensive numerical analysis and exploration of several stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs). More specifically, this thesis investigates time integrators for SPDEs with white noise dispersion. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolution of Plants : a mathematical perspective

    Author : Magnus Lindh; Åke Brännström; Jacob Johansson; Mats G Larson; Lennart Persson; Claus Rüffler; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Evolution; plants; mathematics; optimization; optimal control; adaptive dynamics; flowering; seasons; tree crown; drought; taproot; trade-off; strategy; trait; ESS; NPP; LAI; Red Queen; Mathematics; matematik;

    Abstract : The Earth harbors around 300 000 plant species. The rich and complex environment provided by plants is considered a key factor for the extraordinary diversity of the terrestrial fauna by, for example, providing food and shelter. READ MORE

  3. 3. Treatment Planning of High Dose-Rate Brachytherapy - Mathematical Modelling and Optimization

    Author : Björn Morén; Torbjörn Larsson; Åsa Carlsson Tedgren; Bram Gorissen; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Cancer is a widespread class of diseases that each year affects millions of people. It is mostly treated with chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy, or combinations thereof. High doserate (HDR) brachytherapy (BT) is one modality of radiation therapy, which is used to treat for example prostate cancer and gynecologic cancer. In BT, catheters (i. READ MORE

  4. 4. Random railways and cycles in random regular graphs

    Author : Hans Garmo; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Mathematics; Random railway; connectivity number; random regular graph; long cycles; asymptotic distribution. 1991 Mathematics Subject Classification. Primary 60F05; 60C05; 05C38; 05C80; 05C40; 05C45; MATEMATIK; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : In a cubic multigraph certain restrictions on the paths are made to define what is called a railway. Due to these restrictions a special kind of connectivity is defined. As the number of vertices tends to infinity, the asymptotic probability of obtaining an, in this sense, connected random cubic multigraph is shown to be 1/3. READ MORE

  5. 5. Contributing to develop contributions : a metaphor for teaching in the reform mathematics classroom

    Author : Andreas Eckert; Per Nilsson; Barbara Jaworski; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Teaching mathematics; teaching as learning; professional development; learning to develop learning; contributing to develop contributions; Mathematical Education; Matematikdidaktik;

    Abstract : This thesis aims at contributing to the theoretical research discourse on teaching mathematics. More precise, to explore a teacher’s role and actions while negotiating meaning of mathematical objects in discursive transformative practices in mathematics. READ MORE
