  1. 1. Statistical analysis of metagenomic data

    Author : Viktor Jonsson; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Metagenomics; Statistical methods; Hierarchical Bayesian models; Statistical power; False discovery rate; Environmental genomics; Generalized linear models; Count data; Environmental genomics;

    Abstract : Metagenomics is the study of microbial communities on the genome level by direct sequencing of environmental and clinical samples. Recently developed DNA sequencing technologies have made metagenomics widely applicable and the field is growing rapidly. READ MORE

  2. 2. May the power be with you : managing power-performance tradeoffs in cloud data centers

    Author : Jakub Krzywda; Erik Elmroth; Per-Olov Östberg; Ahmed Ali-Eldin; Tarek F. Abdelzaher; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cloud computing; data centers; power efficiency; power budgeting; application performance;

    Abstract : The overall goal of the work presented in this thesis was to find ways of managing power-performance tradeoffs in cloud data centers. To this end, the relationships between the power consumption of data center servers and the performance of applications hosted in data centers are analyzed, models that capture these relationships are developed, and controllers to optimize the use of data center infrastructures are proposed.

  3. 3. Wind Power and Natural Disasters

    Author : Jon Olauson; Mikael Bergkvist; Stefan Ivanell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Wind power; Natural disasters; Hybrid energy system; Meteorological model; Statistical model; Variability; Wind power integration;

    Abstract : Wind power can be related to natural disasters in several ways. This licentiate thesis gives some background and introduces four papers devoted to two aspects of this relation. The first section looks into how small-scale wind energy converters (WECs) could be used to generate power after a natural disaster. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quantitative vulnerability analysis of electric power networks

    Author : Åke J. Holmgren; Torbjörn Thedéen; Lars-Göran Mattsson; Terje Aven; KTH; []
    Keywords : Safety Analysis; vulnerability; homeland security; risk analysis; network; electric power system; blackout; power law; statistical analysis; graph theory; branching process; game theory; Säkerhetsanalys; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Disturbances in the supply of electric power can have serious implications for everyday life as well as for national (homeland) security. A power outage can be initiated by natural disasters, adverse weather, technical failures, human errors, sabotage, terrorism, and acts of war. READ MORE

  5. 5. Computerized achievement tests : sequential and fixed length tests

    Author : Marie H. Wiberg; Hans Nyquist; Ulf Olsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistics; item respons theory; sequential analysis; statistical inference; power; optimal design; simulations; Statistik; Statistics; Statistik; Statistics; statistik;

    Abstract : The aim of this dissertation is to describe how a computerized achivement test can be constructed and used in practice. Throughout this dissertation the focus is on classifying the examinees into masters and non-masters depending on their ability. However, there has been no attempt to estimate their ability. READ MORE
