  1. 1. Near-local density approximation approach to one-dimensional lattice systems

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk fysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Basheer Joudeh; [2018]
    Keywords : DFT; Hartree; Hartree-Fock; LDA; BALDA; Mean-field; Hubbard; SOFT; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Describing many-body quantum systems has been an analytically and computationally challenging task since the advent of quantum mechanics. However, in the past 50 years as a result of our technological advancement and the emergence of methods such as density-functional theory (DFT), we have taken crucial steps forward regarding our ability to study and understand large quantum systems.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/MAX IV-laboratoriet

    Author : Georgia Paraskaki; [2018]
    Keywords : Science General;

    Abstract : Tapering is a mode of operation of insertion devices that allows the users to perform scanning in a range of photon energies. NanoMAX, BioMAX and BALDER are all beamlines of the 3 GeV MAX IV storage ring and will provide this special mode of operation for their users. READ MORE

  3. 3. Education for Sustainable Development for Everyone: Massive Open Online Courses and global, climate literate, sustainable citizens

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Kristina Naunova; [2018]
    Keywords : Sustainable Development; Education for Sustainable Development ESD ; Massive Open Online Courses MOOCs ; Climate Change; ESD pedagogic approaches;

    Abstract : This thesis contributes to knowledge about how Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) as educational online platforms can be utilized in achieving the purposes of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). Starting out from a view that, in the face of global challenges every individual is an important actor with agency to drive for necessary social changes, the overall ambition of this thesis is to investigate the role of MOOCs, as a specific form of online learning, in empowering and enabling learners to acquire the competences needed to take responsible actions and informed decisions in a rapidly changing, interdependent and unequal world.

    Keywords : Particle; Physics; ATLAS; ATLAS@Home; framework; Volunteer; Computing; Monte; Carlo; BOINC; proton; collider; LHC; event; virtual; machine; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The ATLAS@Home project is a volunteer computing project, part of the larger LHC@Home project, aimed at using the computational power of personal computers from volunteers around the globe, who are interested in helping with the particle physics research taking place at the ATLAS experiment at LHC. Up this point it runs only ATLAS detector simulation tasks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Local Employment Effects of Falling Copper prices: A Case study in the Copperbelt province of Zambia.

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Author : Jakob Davidsson; John Eriksson; [2017-11-23]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Zambia is heavily dependent on copper, and a typical example of a country subject to the natural resource curse. From 2011 until 2016, the copper price fell from around $9,900 to $5,660 per metric tonne (mt). READ MORE
