  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; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    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; Physics; fysik;

    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 modelling and analyses of DNA sequence data with applications to metagenomics

    Author : Mariana Buongermino Pereira; Mariana Buongermino Pereira; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; generalised hidden Markov models; gene abundance data; metagenomics; statistical modelling; bioinformatics; normalisation; DNA sequence data; bioinformatics;

    Abstract : Microorganisms are organised in complex communities and are ubiquitous in all ecosystems, including natural environments and inside the human gut. Metagenomics, which is the direct sequencing of DNA from a sample, enables studying the collective genomes of the organisms that are there present. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Underground as a Storage Facility. Modelling of Nuclear Waste Repositories and Aquifer Thermal Energy Stores

    Author : Thomas Probert; Matematisk fysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; exponential decay; modelling; fractured rock; classical mechanics; quantum mechanics; Mathematical and general theoretical physics; relativity; statistical physics; thermodynamics; Matematisk och allmän teoretisk fysik; klassisk mekanik; relativitet; kvantmekanik; gravitation; statistisk fysik; termodynamik; Environmental technology; pollution control; kontroll av utsläpp; Miljöteknik; conformal flow; heat as a tracer; KBS-3; stress field; temperature field; analytical solution; salt buoyancy; groundwater flow; nuclear waste repository; aquifer thermal energy storage; Fysicumarkivet A:1998:Probert;

    Abstract : The underground is a vast region, which is, too a large extent, unused by man. It has a large potential as a storage facility due to its vastness and availability. This thesis, which consists of eleven papers and reports, deals with nuclear waste repositories in solid rock and with aquifer thermal energy storage systems. READ MORE
