    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to improve background knowledge for making a reliable medical evaluation at the first visit of a woman in her 13th gestational week, to the antenatal clinic. We have focused on the prediction and the risk estimation of preeclampsia, intra-uterine growth restriction (IUGR), and thrombosis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bayesian portfolio selection and risk estimation

    Author : Vilhelm Niklasson; Taras Bodnar; Andreas Stephan; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis concerns portfolio theory from a Bayesian perspective and it includes two papers related to this theme. In the first paper, optimal portfolio weights are derived from a Bayesian perspective to the problem of minimizing the portfolio risk in terms of value at risk (VaR) or conditional value at risk (CVaR) given a certain level of expected return.

  4. 4. Risk Estimation of Groundwater Drawdown in Subsidence Sensitive Areas

    Author : Jonas Sundell; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; uncertainty quantification; urban hydrogeology; pore pressure reduction; subsidence; geostatistics; groundwater leakage; soft soil; groundwater drawdown; spatial variability; settlement; probabilistic; risk assessment;

    Abstract : Groundwater drawdown induced ground subsidence is a severe problem in many regions around the world. Leakage of groundwater into a sub-surface construction, resulting in drawdown and subsequent subsidence, can lead to immense damage costs on buildings and installations in urban areas. READ MORE

  5. 5. Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in rheumatoid arthritis : aspects of pathogenesis and risk

    Author : Bengt Wahlin; Solveig Wållberg-Jonsson; Anna Södergren; Anders Bengtsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rheumatoid arthritis; inflammation; atherosclerosis; cardiovascular disease; risk estimation; cytomegalovirus; T-cells; bone turnover; osteoprotegerin; osteocalcin; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have an increased prevalence and severity of atherosclerosis, and a corresponding increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The mechanisms causing this are not well elucidated, but both traditional cardiovascular risk factors and RA-associated factors have been associated with atherosclerosis and increased risk of cardiovascular events in patients with RA.
