  1. 1. Some Problems in Quantified Security

    Author : Vilhelm Verendel; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; risk behavior; quantified security; risk perception; security metrics; computer security; survey; decision-making; operational risk; quantified risk; quantitative models; information security;

    Abstract : This thesis contains work related to quantitative representation and analysis of computer and information security. The ability to accurately describe security using quantitative methods could offer better control and evaluation of security in operational settings. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cancer Risk Assessment of Glycidol Evaluation of a Multiplicative Risk Model for Genotoxic Compounds

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Jenny Aasa; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; glycidol; 3-monochloropropane-1; 2-diol 3-MCPD ; genotoxicity; mutations; micronuclei; hemoglobin adducts; in vivo dose; multiplicative risk model; cancer risk assessment; human cancer risk; Environmental Chemistry; miljökemi;

    Abstract : Humans are exposed to chemical compounds in everyday life, both from the environment and from endogenous processes. Some compounds constitute a risk for cancer development. One such compound is glycidol, which is genotoxic and an animal carcinogen. It is the model compound of this work, partly due to its presence in food. READ MORE

  3. 3. Accident Risk and Environmental Assessment Development of an Assessment Guideline with Examination in Northern Scandinavia

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Kulturgeografiska institutionen

    Author : Markus Lundkvist; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geography; accident; risk; hazard; environmental assessment; geomorphology; railway; road; avalanche; debris flow; rock fall; slush flow; torrent; moose; reindeer; environmental impact assessment; proposal alternatives; Kiruna; Narvik; Geografi; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Other earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Övrig geovetenskap;

    Abstract : In environmental impact assessment (EIA), accident risk should be considered as one impact. However, few studies have compared assessed risk levels with documented accidents. There is thus a need for assessing accuracy of risk assessment methodologies. READ MORE

  4. 4. From data to decision - learning by probabilistic risk analysis of biological invasions

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Kulturgeografiska institutionen

    Author : Ullrika Sahlin; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; probabilistic models; establishment success; prediction; forecasting; uncertainty; risk; invasive species; Bayesian methods;

    Abstract : Predicting an uncertain future with uncertain knowledge is a challenge. The success of efforts to preserve biodiversity, to maintain biosecurity and to reduce a negative impact from climate change, depend on scientifically based predictions of future events. READ MORE

  5. 5. Uncertainty and Risk Analysis in Fire Safety Engineering

    University dissertation from Department of Fire Safety Engineering and Systems Safety, Lund University
