  1. 1. Studies in Glacier Mass Balance : Measurement and its errors

    Author : Andrew Mercer; Peter Jansson; Gunhild Rosqvist; Ian Brown; Jonathan Carrivick; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Glaciology; Mass Balance; Measurement Errors; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : The study of the surface mass balance of valley glaciers has a long history but one that is dogged by uncertainty and errors, and uncertainty about those errors. These problems are acknowledged by the glaciological community and have been examined and formalised in several publications. READ MORE

  3. 3. Developing Methods for Modelling Procedures in System Analysis and System Dynamics

    Author : Hördur Haraldsson; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; System Dynamics; System Analysis; group model building; modelling procedures; innovation phases; modelling workflow; Natural science; Naturvetenskap; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Abstract : System Thinking is the mindset of defining and confining a problem and its symptoms as well as a method for communicating system understanding. System Analysis is taking that problem apart to understand its causalities and structural arrangement. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bringing System Dynamics into Action Research

    Author : Paul Holmström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; process consultation; Operations Research; simulation; action research; modelling; System Dynamics; healthcare;

    Abstract : System Dynamics simulation is a computer-aided approach to policy analysis and design, often carried out by external experts in simulation. System Dynamics is particularly useful in complicated and complex situations, such as healthcare. However, research has shown that few models in healthcare are implemented. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lattice dynamics : From fundamental research to practical applications

    Author : Johan Tidholm; Igor A. Abrikosov; Olle Hellman; Ferenc Tasnadi; Gerd Steinle-Neumann; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The reason to perform calculations in material science usually falls into one of two categories: to predict or explain the origin of material properties. This thesis covers first-principle calculations for solids at extreme conditions, from both of the two mentioned categories. READ MORE
