  1. 1. Self-organization of nanoparticles - implications for interface biology

    Author : Anders Lundgren; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Gold nanoparticles; self-organization; self-assembly; nanostructure; nanopatterns; cell surface interactions; chemical gradients;

    Abstract : Cells bind to their surroundings via proteins displayed on the cell surface. These interactions support the cells and are important for many cellular processes, e.g. cell migration during morphogenesis, wound healing and cancer metastasis. READ MORE

  2. 2. A new managerial perspective on self-organization in product development

    Author : Johannes Berglind Söderqvist; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Metaphor; Self-organization; Management; Practice; Product development;

    Abstract : Technological changes and faster information flows motivate managers and management scholars to explore new forms of product development organizing, departing from the managerial hierarchy and building increasingly on self-organization. With few exceptions such explorations and experimental efforts have proven challenging to sustain over time. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lipid Nanotube Networks: Shape Transitions and Insights into the Dynamics of Self-Organization

    Author : Tatsiana Lobovkina; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; circular nanotube; shape transition; enzymatic reaction; nanotube knot; self-organization; liposome; lipid nanotube; lipid vesicle; nanotube-vesicle network;

    Abstract : Nanotube-vesicle networks (NVNs) are simplified models of cell membrane tubular systems which are dynamic transportation routs for molecular cargoes in biological cells. The presented work describes dynamic properties of NVNs such as self-organization, shape and topology transformations; moreover, specific geometric properties of the networks are used for controlling enzymatic reactions.

  4. 4. The Inherent Complexity of Agglomeration : Essays on the self-organization of urban economies

    Author : Joakim Wernberg; Institutionen för kulturgeografi och ekonomisk geografi; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Complex adaptive system CAS ; Complexity; Self-organization; Agglomeration economies; Knowledge spillovers; Information processing; Local interactions; Cities; Urban economies; Urban Scaling; Intra-urban scaling;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis combines complexity science and economic geography in order to explore bottom-up, self-organizing principles within urban economies, in particular in relation to the flow of information and knowledge between people. The thesis consists of a kappa that covers the general theoretical framework and four papers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ripples Across The Internet of Things : Context Metrics as Vehicles forRelational Self-Organization

    Author : Jamie Walters; Theo Kanter; Henrik Boström; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; context information; context distances; context modelling; dcxp; cii; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : The current paradigm shift in computing has placed mobile computation at the centre of focus. Users are now even more connected; demanding everything everywhere services. READ MORE
