  1. 1. Optional RHEMES and Omitted UNDERGOERS An Event Structure Approach to Implicit Objects in Swedish

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Swedish Language and Multilingualism, Stockholm University

    Author : Johanna Prytz; Cecilia Falk; Ida Larsson; Marit Julien; [2016]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; implicit objects; object omission; null objects; object drop; objectless sentences; pseudo-transitive; non-core transitive; transitivity; Swedish; event structure; argument structure; the syntax-semantic interface; nordiska språk; Scandinavian Languages;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to define the essential syntactic-semantic properties of three types of objectless sentences in present-day Swedish. The three types of objectless sentences are labeled descriptively as follows: Implicit Object Read type (IOR) with pseudo-transitive verbs like läsa ‘read’; Implicit Object Open type (IOO), which involves various sets of transitive verbs like öppna ‘open’ and bära ‘carry’; and Implicit Object Kill type (IOK), which typically involves destruction verbs like döda ‘kill’.

  2. 2. The Syntax of Past Participles. A Generative Study of Nonfinite Constructions in Ancient and Modern Italian

    University dissertation from Lund University Press

    Author : Verner Egerland; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1996]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Absolute Constructions; Word order and Participial Agreement in Italian; Scandinavian; and Romance; Affectedness Constraint; Medieval and Renaissance Italian; Spec head agreement and Case Theory; Antisymmetry; Past Participles; Null Objects; Italian language and literature; Italienska språk och litteratur ;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is double. First, it will be shown that a number of problems of the syntax of ancient, literary Italian lend themselves readily to an analysis in terms of the Theory of Principles and Parameters. READ MORE

  3. 3. Stellar Models in General Relativity

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fysikum

    Author : Lars Samuelsson; Stockholms universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; General relativity; compact objects; neutron stars; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : Neutron stars are some of the most fascinating objects in Nature. Essentially all aspects of physics seems to be represented inside them. Their cores are likely to contain deconfined quarks, hyperons and other exotic phases of matter in which the strong interaction is the dominant force. READ MORE

  4. 4. Electromagnetic Fields in Moving and Inhomogeneous Media

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Alfvénlaboratoriet

    Author : Paul Piwnicki; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : Moving Media; Light; Genaral Relativity;

    Abstract : The present thesis deals with electromagnetic effectscreated by the motion or inhomogeneity of a dielectricmedium.In the first paper the quantum R\"ontgen effect isdiscussed. Here a rotating Bose-Einstein condensate -- oranother kind of quantum fluid -- is placed in a chargedcapacitor. The medium's rotation creates a magnetic field. READ MORE

  5. 5. An evolutionary basis for protein design and structure prediction

    University dissertation from Lunds universitet

    Author : Christoffer Norn; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019-01]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein evolution; Biophysics; Protein design; Protein structure prediction;

    Abstract : The sequence diversity of protein families is a result of the biophysical selection pressures that shaped their evolutionary history. Among the dominant pressures is selection for protein thermostability, which in itself is an attractive target in protein engineering because of its importance for various biopharmaceutical properties, the performance of industrial enzymes, and the ability to design new protein functions.
