    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Intertemporal labor supply; Frisch elasticity; Labor supply; Adjustment frictions; Geographic mobility; Moving costs; Comparative advantage; Wage rigidity; Monetary policy; Consumption; Household debt; Economics; nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : Labor Supply Responses and Adjustment Frictions: A Tax-Free Year in IcelandHow does labor supply respond to a temporary wage change? To answer this question, I study an unexpected and salient tax reform in Iceland in 1987 that resulted in a year free of labor income taxes, but creating only minimal income effects, offering an ideal natural experiment. I first construct a new employer-employee dataset from digitized administrative records for the population. READ MORE

  2. 2. Essays on intergenerational income mobility, geographical mobility, and education

    Author : Stefanie Heidrich; Thomas Aronsson; David Granlund; Magnus Wikström; Markus Jäntti; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; optimal taxation; social norms; intergenerational mobility; regional analysis; multilevel model; child human capital development; moving costs; simulation of income paths; lifetime income; nationalekonomi; Economics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of an introductory part and the following four self-contained papers:In Paper [I] we analyze the implications of social identity and self-categorization for optimal redistributive income taxation. A two-type model is supplemented by an assumption that individuals select themselves into social categories, in which norms are formed and education effort choices partly depend on these norms.

  3. 3. Finite Volume Methods on Quadrilateral and Moving Meshes

    Author : Fredrik Svensson; Matematik LTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; numerisk analys; system; kontroll; systems; control; numerical analysis; finite volume method; Datalogi; Computer science; moving mesh method; higher order reconstruction; hyperbolic conservation law;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is the study of finite volume methods for hyperbolic conservation laws on non-uniform meshes. A high-order hyperbolic reconstruction method is presented. The method is constructed for quadrilateral meshes, since more realistic hyperbolic problems involve more complicated problem domains than the standard rectangular ones. READ MORE

  4. 4. Separation of biomolecules using Open-Loop Non-Isocratic Simulated moving bed (SMB) technology

    Author : Deepti Sahoo; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Open-loop Non-Isocratic SMB; Simulated moving bed; True moving bed Chromatography; continuous separation; protein purification; batch chromatography;

    Abstract : In biotechnological industries, downstream processing is a bottleneck in the complete production process. There is a wish to reduce the costs and therefore one tries to operate separation technology in continuous mode. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sustainable Energy Access for All : Initial tools to compare technology options and costs

    Author : Francesco Fuso Nerini; Mark Howells; Hisham Zerriffi; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : This thesis presents analytical advances to support quantitative insights into national and local policies for achieving energy access goals. The key objective is the creation of an analytical tool to compare technology options for achieving energy access goals and to estimate the cost of reaching those goals. READ MORE
