  3. 3. Physiological demands of competitive elite cross-country skiing

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Magnus Carlsson; Umeå universitet.; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Performance capability; maximal oxygen uptake; lactate threshold; lean mass; double poling; power output; maximal speed; sprint skiing; distance skiing.; Health and Welfare; Hälsa och välfärd;

    Abstract : Introduction Researchers have, for decades, contributed to an increased collective understanding of the physiological demands in cross-country skiing; however, almost all of these studies have used either non-elite subjects and/or performances that emulate cross-country skiing. To establish the physiological demands of cross-country skiing, it is important to relate the investigated physiological variables to the competitive performance of elite skiers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Statistically Guided Visualization and Exploratory Analysis of Omics Data

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Charlotte Soneson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bioinformatics; Exploratory analysis; Multidimensional Scaling; Omics data; Principal component analysis; Visualization;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with methods for extracting robust and relevant information from high-dimensional data sets, and statistically guided visualization methods for representing the data in an informative and easily accessible way. High-dimensional data sets are becoming increasingly prevalent in many different scientific disciplines. READ MORE

  5. 5. Automated Bottleneck Analysis of Production Systems Increasing the applicability of simulation-based multi-objective optimization for bottleneck analysis within industry

    University dissertation from Skövde : University of Skövde

    Author : Jacob Bernedixen; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bottleneck analysis; bottleneck identification; bottleneck improvement; multi-objective optimization; simulation; Production and Automation Engineering; Produktion och automatiseringsteknik;

    Abstract : Manufacturing companies constantly need to explore new management strategies and new methods to increase the efficiency of their production systems and retain their competitiveness. It is of paramount importance to develop new bottleneck analysis methods that can identify the factors that impede the overall performance of their productionsystems so that the optimal improvement actions can be performed.
