  1. 1. Modelling Sexual Interactions : Sexual behaviour and the spread of sexually transmitted infections on dynamic networks

    Author : Disa Hansson; Tom Britton; Fredrik Liljeros; KaYin Leung; Janneke Heijne; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical modelling; Sexually transmitted infections; Egocentric network analysis; Dynamic networks; Sexual behaviour; HIV; Statistical inference; Mathematical Statistics; matematisk statistik;

    Abstract : In this thesis we develop statistical and mathematical models to study different factors of relevance for the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Two special interest groups for STI interventions are considered: sexually active youths and men who have sex with men (MSM). READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling anisotropic interactions in colloidal systems

    Author : Alexei Abrikossov; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : SIMULATION; Modelling; electrostatic interactions; Colloids; Statistical mechanics; SIMULATION; Modelling; electrostatic interactions; colloid; Statistical mechanics;

    Abstract : There has been an increased interest to design “smart materials” which can self-assemble into complex structures in accordance to external factors such as for example electromagnetic fields. By designing particles with directional interactions one is able to control how particles will interact with each other. READ MORE

  3. 3. Statistical Modelling and Inference for XENON1T

    Author : Knut Dundas Morå; Jan Conrad; Alfredo Davide Ferella; Glen Cowan; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dark matter; direct detection; statistical analysis; fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : A great number of astrophysical observations suggests that of the matter in our universe, only a sixth is made up of known matter. The rest, named dark matter, has not been successfully identified. READ MORE

  4. 4. Statistical Methods for Taxon Classification and Bird Migration Phenology

    Author : Måns Karlsson; Ola Hössjer; Jonas Knape; Benjamin Bolker; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Classification; quantile regression; phenology; statistical ornithology; L-functionals; set-valued classification; species identification; statistical ecology; multispecies modelling; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : The connection between ecology and statistics is deep. Methodological advancement in statistics open up new possibilities to understand the distribution of life on earth, and research questions in ecology cause new statistical methods to be developed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Annealed Glass Failure Modelling : A Weakest-Link Approach with Statistical Analysis

    Author : David Kinsella; Byggnadsmekanik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; glass strength; structural glass; Weibull distribution; weakest-link system; statistical analysis; experimental tests; numerical modelling; finite element method; fracture mechanics;

    Abstract : Novel and increased use of glass in building construction has been made possible, as a result of methods of mass production introduced during the 20th century and advanced computational structural analyses. With modern use of glass structures, a range of demands emerge which need to be addressed in the strength design process. READ MORE
