  1. 1. Constructing the Suburb Swedish Discourses of Spatial Stigmatisation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of Social and Economic Geography

    Author : Karin Backvall; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Spatial stigmatisation; segregation; representation; suburb; discourse; Geography; Geografi;

    Abstract : By exploring representations of place, this thesis treats practices of spatial stigmatisation in the context of segregated Swedish cities. In three papers, different aspects of stigmatisation and place-making are discussed and analysed, where the overarching ambition is to identify and critically deconstruct the ideology behind stigma as well as suggest ways of making representation positive.

  2. 2. Functional understanding of space Representing spatial knowledge using concepts grounded in an agent's purpose

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Kristoffer Sjöö; KTH.; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; spatial representation; autonomous robots; spatial understanding; semantic mapping; spatial relations; visual search; robot search;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the role of function in representations of space by robots - that is, dealing directly and explicitly with those aspects of space and objects in space that serve some purpose for the robot. It is suggested that taking function into account helps increase the generality and robustness of solutions in an unpredictable and complex world, and the suggestion is affirmed by several instantiations of functionally conceived spatial models.

  3. 3. The Architectural Metaphor : Textual Models in Spatial Construction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Anders Johansson; KTH.; [2003]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Architecture; Architectural theory; Model; Metaphor; Narrative; Representation; Trope; Paul Ricoeur; Max Black; Nelson Goodman; Michel de Certeau;

    Abstract : The dissertation concerns the concept of model withinarchitecture, and elaborates particular uses in this field,where modelling is a heuristic process aiming at invention anddiscovery. Methodologically, this is made by introducing thecomparative concepts of metaphor and narrative. READ MORE

  4. 4. Vintage models of spatial structural change

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Lars Westin; Umeå universitet.; [1990]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; adiabatic approximation; dynamics; input-output; interregional computable general equilibrium; slaving principle; spatial models; spatial linear expenditure system; spatial price equilibrium; transportation networks; vintage function;

    Abstract : In the study a class of multisector network models, suitable for simulation of the interaction between production, demand, trade, and infrastructure, is presented. A characteristic feature of the class is a vintage model of the production system. READ MORE

  5. 5. When, Where and What The Development of Perceived Spatio-Temporal Continuity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Olga Kochukhova; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Psychology; infants; occlusion; incomplete visual information; saccadic gaze shifts; smooth pursuit; temporal; spatial; object representation; learning; extrapolation; Psykologi;

    Abstract : This thesis explored the development of infants’ ability to preserve spatio-temporal continuity of moving objects in situations where they disappeared completely (Study I & II) or partially (Study III) behind other objects (occluders). We recorded infants gaze direction with the help of two different techniques: 1) infants’ gaze shifts in Study I were measured with electro-oculogram (EOG) in combination with a motion analyzing system (Qualisys) that recorded the reflected infrared light from markers placed on the infant’s head and the moving object; 2) in Studies II and III a cornea reflection eye tracker was used (Tobii 1750) .
