    Author : Kjetil Falkenberg Hansen; KTH Royal Institute of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; scratching;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the analysis and modeling of scratching, in other words, the DJ (disk jockey) practice of using the turntable as a musical instrument.

    Author : Deborah Olausson; Arkeologi; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Lithic technology; Neolithic; flint axes; stone axes; practical trials; style;

    Abstract : Through practical experiments, edge-wear analysis, and the study of archaeological collections, the dissertation explores the complex relationship between style and function in a specific class of artifacts: the Neolithic axe.
