  1. 1. Complexity and Ambivalence in Ship Safety Inspection : The view of Swedish Port state control officers

    Author : Fredrik Hjorth; Carl Hult; Ulf Drugge; Michael Baldauf; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Inspection; Port state control; Detention; Deprofessionalization; Compliance; Maritime safety; Profession; Bureaucracy; Sjöfartsvetenskap; Maritime Science;

    Abstract : Despite an extensive system of Port state controls (PSC) on ships, inspection loopholes in European control functions have been reported. Furthermore, risk factors associated with fatigue, stress and a poorly developed safety culture on board ships have been identified in earlier research. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dynamics of Coinfection : Complexity and Implications

    Author : Samia Ghersheen; Vladimir Kozlov; Uno Wennergren; Vladimir Tkachev; Åke Brännström; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Living beings are always on risk from multiple infectious agents in individual or in groups. Though multiple pathogens' interactions have widely been studied in epidemiology. Despite being well known, the co-existence of these pathogens and their coinfection remained a mystery to be uncovered. READ MORE

    Abstract : The dissertation concerns F. A. Hayek’s (1899–1992) critique of legislation. The purpose of the investigation is to clarify and assess that critique. READ MORE

  4. 4. Stability and complexity of ecosystems - Global interaction constraints, landscape and extinctions

    Author : Susanne Pettersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Complexity; Collapse; Stability; Ecosystems; Extinctions; Population dynamics; spatial heterogeneity; Dynamical systems; dispersal;

    Abstract : Human society's expansion and demand for both biotic and abiotic natural resources exert a large pressure on ecosystems around the globe. Ecosystems are complex networks of species interacting with each other and their physical surroundings. READ MORE

  5. 5. Complexity-aware Decision-making with Applications to Large-scale and Human-in-the-loop Systems

    Author : Elis Stefansson; Karl H. Johansson; Henrik Sandberg; Iman Shames; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Complexity-aware Decision-making; Automata Theory; Automatic Control; Optimal Control; Kolmogorov Complexity; Hierarchical Finite State Machines; Large-scale Systems; Human-in-the-loop; Game Theory; Human Decision-making; Autonomous vehicles; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis considers control systems governed by autonomous decision-makers and humans. We formalise and compute low-complex control policies with applications to large-scale systems, and propose human interaction models for controllers to compute interaction-aware decisions. READ MORE
