  1. 1. Structural robustness - FE methodology for analysing alternate load paths in buildings

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Byggnadsmekanik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : Axel Kjellman; [2017]
    Keywords : accidental action; robustness; finite element method; FE; dynamics; progressive collapse; redundancy; alternate path; notional removal; precast; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Robust structures are necessary in order to avoid a progressive collapse if a local failure occurs, for instance, failure of a column. Robustness is achieved in structures by designing them for so-called accidental actions, such as an explosion or a vehicle impact. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investment in Value: A Copula Approach

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för finansiell ekonomi

    Author : Gustaf Soldan Patrikson; Victor Andrée; [2017]
    Keywords : factor investing; copula; tail dependence; diversification;

    Abstract : We evaluate how factor equity strategies are optimally combined, focusing on the role of the value factor (HML) against the background of a recent academic discussion about its potential redundancy, and the discovery of the investment (CMA) and profitability (RMW) factors. The analysis is centered around a conditional joint return distribution from a dynamic copula model, which allows for simulation with a time-varying and non-normal dependence structure. READ MORE

  3. 3. Efficient database management based on complex association rules

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Avdelningen för informationssystem och -teknologi

    Author : Heng Zhang; [2017]
    Keywords : Association rules; word segmentation;

    Abstract : The large amount of data accumulated by applications is stored in a database. Because of the large amount, name conflicts or missing values sometimes occur. This prevents certain types of analysis. READ MORE

  4. 4. An Entropy Estimate of Written Language and Twitter Language : A Comparison between English and Swedish

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för matematik (MA)

    Author : Sanna Juhlin; [2017]
    Keywords : entropy; entropy rate; redundancy; Twitter; natural language;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study is to estimate and compare the entropy and redundancy of written English and Swedish. We also investigate and compare the entropy and redundancy of Twitter language. This is done by extracting n consecutive characters called n-grams and calculating their frequencies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evaluation of Cryptographic CRC in 65nm CMOS

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för informations- och kommunikationsteknik (ICT)

    Author : Yang Yu; [2017]
    Keywords : MAC; KMAC; cryptographic CRC; Simulation; Verilog HDL; MATLAB;

    Abstract : With the rapid growth of Internet-of-Things (IoT), billions of devices are expected to be interconnected to provide various services appealing to users. Many devices will get an access to valuable information which is likely to increase the number of malicious attacks on these devices in the future. READ MORE
