  1. 1. Quantum State Analysis : Probability theory as logic in Quantum mechanics

    Author : Anders Månsson; Anders Karlsson; Gunnar Björk; Ingemar Bengtsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; quantum; quantum mechanics; state; state analysis; probability; probability theory; logic; Photonics; Fotonik;

    Abstract : Quantum mechanics is basically a mathematical recipe on how to construct physical models. Historically its origin and main domain of application has been in the microscopic regime, although it strictly seen constitutes a general mathematical framework not limited to this regime.

  2. 2. Two-Barrier Problems in Applied Probability: Algorithms and Analysis

    Author : Mats Pihlsgård; Matematisk statistik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistics; operations research; programming; actuarial mathematics; Statistik; Matematik; Mathematics; Naturvetenskap; Natural science; Reflection; Stochastic processes; Applied probability; Queueing; operationsanalys; programmering; aktuariematematik;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of five papers (A-E). In Paper A, we study transient properties of the queue length process in various queueing settings. We focus on computing the mean and the Laplace transform of the time required for the queue length starting at $x0. We define the loss rate due to the reflection. READ MORE

  3. 3. Markov Chains, Renewal, Branching and Coalescent Processes : Four Topics in Probability Theory

    Author : Andreas Nordvall Lagerås; Thomas Höglund; Ingemar Kaj; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical statistics; Matematisk statistik; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four papers.In paper 1, we prove central limit theorems for Markov chains under (local) contraction conditions. As a corollary we obtain a central limit theorem for Markov chains associated with iterated function systems with contractive maps and place-dependent Dini-continuous probabilities. READ MORE

  4. 4. Contributions to the theory of unequal probability sampling

    Author : Anders Lundquist; Lennart Bondesson; Aleksandras Plikusas; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; balanced sampling; conditional Poisson sampling; inclusion probabilities; maximum entropy; Markov chain Monte Carlo; Pareto sampling; Sampford sampling; unequal probability sampling.; Mathematical statistics; Matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics; matematisk statistik;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of five papers related to the theory of unequal probability sampling from a finite population. Generally, it is assumed that we wish to make modelassisted inference, i.e. the inclusion probability for each unit in the population is prescribed before the sample is selected. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling Sea Surface Dynamics Using Crossing Distributions

    Author : Anastassia Baxevani; Matematisk statistik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistik; actuarial mathematics; programmering; operations research; Statistics; velocities; global maximum; Rice formula; level crossings; Gaussian random fields; programming; aktuariematematik; operationsanalys;

    Abstract : The thesis deals mainly with modelling sea surface dynamics. We consider two different scales. READ MORE
