  1. 1. Hedonic prices, economic growth, and spatial dependence

    Author : Krister Sandberg; Lars Westin; Bernard Fingleton; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; business and economics; hedonic prices; spatial econometrics; co-operative flats; spatial dependence; SAR-GM; Single-family Homes; Heterogeneity; China; Convergence; Provincial Economic Growth; Ekonomi; Business and economics; Ekonomi; nationalekonomi; Economics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of three papers on econometric modeling of spatial dependence. The awareness of interactions between actors is fundamental for understanding property markets as well as the growth of regions. In both cases, neighbors and neighboring markets may stimulate or hamper growth of values. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spatial heterogeneity and biotic interactions : scaling from experiments to natural systems

    Author : Ulf Bergström; Göran Englund; Erik Bonsdorff; Sebastian Diehl; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; Ekologi; Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; zooekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : Much of current ecological theory stems from experimental studies. These studies have often been conducted in closed systems, at spatial scales that are much smaller than the systems of interest. READ MORE

  3. 3. Spatial Spread of Organisms : Modeling ecological and epidemiological processes

    Author : Tom Lindström; Uno Wennergren; Colleen Webb; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Spatial kernel; Spatially explicit modeling; Disease transmission; Animal movements; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the spread of organisms in both ecological and epidemiological contexts. In most of the studies presented, displacement is modeled with a spatial kernel function, which is characterized by scale and shape. These are measured by the net squared displacement (or kernel variance) and kurtosis, respectively. READ MORE

  4. 4. Groundwater resources in hard rock coastal terrains : Insights into heterogeneity and spatial variability

    Author : Robert Earon; Bo Olofsson; Okke Batelaan; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Crystalline Rock; Groundwater Balance; Kinematic porosity; Groundwater Recharge; Water Security; Coastal Aquifer; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : Challenges regarding water security in hard rock coastal regions with limited soil cover are: a seasonal absence of recharge during times of peak residency, heterogeneity and variability of the fracture network, close proximity to saline water sources and spatially inconsistent storage and extraction. In areas where it is not feasible to connect residents to municipal water systems, a better understanding of the resilience of reservoirs is needed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Computational Analysis of Tumour Heterogeneity

    Author : Stefanie Friedrich; Erik Sonnhammer; Martin Hemberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tumour heterogeneity; human genome and gene expression analyses; pathway annotation; fusion transcript detection; copy number calling; and high-resolution data; biokemi med inriktning mot bioinformatik; Biochemistry towards Bioinformatics;

    Abstract : Every tumour is unique and characterised by its genetic, epigenetic, phenotypic, and morphological signature. The diversity observed between and within tumours, and over time, is termed tumour heterogeneity. An increased heterogeneity within a tumour correlates with cancer progression, higher resistance rates, and poorer outcome. READ MORE
