  1. 1. Predictive markers : for treatment sensitivity in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma

    Author : Lovisa Farnebo; Karin Roberg; Ann-Charlotte Johansson; Lena Norberg-Spaak; Antti Mäkitie; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Head and neck cancer is the sixth most common cancer world wide. In Sweden approximately 850 new cases are diagnosed each year, and two thirds are men. The past decades of improved treatment strategies have unfortunately not significantly improved the five-year survival rates for this group of patients. READ MORE

  2. 2. Linear Model Predictive Control : Stability and Robustness

    Author : Johan Löfberg; Lennart Ljung; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Most real systems are subjected to constraints, both on the available control effort and the controlled variables. Classical linear feedback is in some cases not enough for such systems. This has motivated the development of a more complicated, nonlinear controller, called model predictive control, MPC.

  3. 3. Predictive Modeling of Lake Eutrophication

    Author : Jan Mikael Malmaeus; Lars Håkanson; Kurt Pettersson; Jürg Bloesch; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Earth sciences; mass balance model; dynamic model; mechanistic model; phosphorus; LEEDS; suspended particulate matter; settling velocity; sedimentation; accumulation sediments; burial; diffusion; climate scenario; Erken; Balaton; Kinneret; Batorino; Miastro; Naroch; Galten; Ekoln; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis presents predictive models for important variables concerning eutrophication effects in lakes. The keystone is a dynamic phosphorus model based on ordinary differential equations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Model Predictive Control in Flight Control Design : Stability and Reference Tracking

    Author : Daniel Simon; Johan Löfberg; Sébastien Gros; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Model Predictive Control;

    Abstract : Aircraft are dynamic systems that naturally contain a variety of constraints and nonlinearities such as, e.g., maximum permissible load factor, angle of attack and control surface deflections. READ MORE

  5. 5. Learning local predictive accuracy for expert evaluation and forecast combination

    Author : Oscar Oelrich; Mattias Villani; Francesco Ravazzolo; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bayesian; forecast combination; predictive density; Gaussian process; bootstrap; Bayes factors; model selection; Bayesian predictive synthesis; nonparametric methods; power transformation; expected log predictive density; variable selection; statistik; Statistics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four papers that study several topics related to expert evaluation and aggregation. Paper I explores the properties of Bayes factors. Bayes factors, which are used for Bayesian hypothesis testing as well as to aggregate models using Bayesian model averaging, are sometimes observed to behave erratically. READ MORE
