  1. 1. Bayesian Inference for Nonlinear Dynamical Systems : Applications and Software Implementation

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Jerker Nordh; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Indoor Navigation; pyParticleEst; Software Implementation; Simultaneous Localization and Mapping; Parameter Estimation; System Identification; Sequential Importance Sampling; Particle Filter; Bayesian Inference; Markov Chain Monte Carlo; Particle Smoother;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is estimation of nonlinear dynamical systems, focusing on the use of methods such as particle filtering and smoothing. There are three areas of contributions: software implementation, applications of nonlinear estimation and some theoretical extensions to existing algorithms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Point of care microfluidic tool development for resource limited settings

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Indradumna Banerjee; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Blood; control; cell separation; centrifugal microfluidics; diagnostics; elasto-inertial; hematocrit level; microfluidics; neonatal diagnostics; nucleic acid quantification; point of care; particle focusing; resource limited settings.; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : The development of point of care diagnostics using recent advances in microfluidics have the potential to transform health care in several ways, especially in resource limited settings with limited access to advanced health care infrastructure. However, translating a point of care device to reality is often a challenging task because of the complexities involved in integrating a number of diverse engineering concepts into an easy to use, accurate and portable device.

    Abstract : Non-spherical particles are present all around us, in biological, industrial and environmental processes. Making predictions of their impact on us and systems in our vicinity can make life better for everyone here on earth. READ MORE

  4. 4. Laser-Matter Interactions at Extreme Irradiance: X-ray Generation and Relativistic Channelling

    University dissertation from Atomic Physics, Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Anders Sjögren; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; relativistic self-focusing; particle acceleration; x-ray generation; radiography; Laserteknik; Laser technology; laser-produced plasma; light scattering; Fysicumarkivet A:2002:Sjögren;

    Abstract : This thesis summarizes experimental work in which the powerful Ti:sapphire lasers at the High Power Laser Facility at the Lund Laser Centre have been employed to investigate laser-produced X-rays and relativistic channelling. These lasers produce short pulses, of the order of 50 fs, with energies ranging from 1 mJ to 1 J. READ MORE
