  1. 1. Computational Diffusion MRI: Optimal Gradient Encoding Schemes

    Author : Mohammad Alipoor; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Gradient Encoding Scheme; ADC imaging; Diffusion MRI; D-optimal experiment design; Diffusion Tensor Imaging; Optimal Image acquisition; Second and Fourth Order Tensors.; Diffusion Kurtosis Imaging;

    Abstract : Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) is a non-invasivestructural imaging technique that provides information about tissue microstructures.Quantitative measures derived from dMRI reflect pathologicaland developmental changes in living tissues such as human brain.

  2. 2. Optimal portfolios in the high-dimensional setting : Estimation and assessment of uncertainty

    Author : Erik Thorsén; Taras Bodnar; Joanna Tyrcha; Mark Podolski; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Shrinkage estimator; high-dimensional covariance matrix; random matrix theory; optimal portfolios; parameter uncertainty; ridge regularization; dynamic decision making; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : Financial portfolios and diversification go hand in hand. Diversification is one of, if not, the best risk mitigation strategy there is. If an investment performs poorly, then it will not impact the performance of the portfolio much due to diversification. Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) is a framework for constructing diversified portfolios. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dynamic Optimization for Agent-Based Systems and Inverse Optimal Control

    Author : Yibei Li; Xiaoming Hu; Per Enqvist; Yishao Zhou; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Inverse optimal control; formation control; differential game; credit scoring; Mathematics; Matematik;

    Abstract : This dissertation is concerned with three problems within the field of optimization for agent--based systems. Firstly, the inverse optimal control problem is investigated for the single-agent system. Given a dynamic process, the goal is to recover the quadratic cost function from the observation of optimal control sequences. READ MORE

  4. 4. Computerized achievement tests : sequential and fixed length tests

    Author : Marie H. Wiberg; Hans Nyquist; Ulf Olsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistics; item respons theory; sequential analysis; statistical inference; power; optimal design; simulations; Statistik; Statistics; Statistik; Statistics; statistik;

    Abstract : The aim of this dissertation is to describe how a computerized achivement test can be constructed and used in practice. Throughout this dissertation the focus is on classifying the examinees into masters and non-masters depending on their ability. However, there has been no attempt to estimate their ability.

  5. 5. Control and Estimation of Automotive Powertrains with Backlash

    Author : Adam Lagerberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; backlash control; powertrain control; driveability; backlash estimation; model predictive control; optimal control; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : In automotive powertrains, backlash causes problems with vehicle driveability, specifically at so called tip-in and tip-out maneuvers. These maneuvers may trigger phenomena known in the automotive industry as shunt and shuffle, which are partially caused by the backlash. READ MORE
