  1. 1. Mathematical Modelling of Insulin Resistance Development Caused by Chronic Inflammation

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för medicinsk teknik

    Author : Simon Wu; [2019]
    Keywords : Mathematical models; Modelling; Chronic inflammation; Macrophages; Adipocytes; Insulin resistance;

    Abstract : Obesity has in recent times become a more serious health issue and was estimated to affect over 650 million people world-wide in 2016. Furthermore, the list of obesity-associated diseases is countless, many of which have severe consequences. Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is such a disease, and it was estimated to be over 1. READ MORE

  2. 2. DEVELOPMENT OF A ROBUST CASCADE CONTROLLER FOR A RIDERLESS BICYCLE

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för innovation, design och teknik; Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för innovation, design och teknik

    Author : Niklas Persson; Tom Andersson; [2019]
    Keywords : control theory; riderless bicycle; labview; self-balance; signal processing; embedded system;

    Abstract : A controlled riderless bicycle is desired for the purpose of testing autonomous vehicles ability to detect and recognise cyclists. The bicycle, which is a highly unstable system with complex dynamics have been subject to research for over a century, and in the last decades, controllers have been developed for autonomous bicycles.

  3. 3. Effects of short-term hypoxia on skeletal musclecalcium handling

    University essay from Örebro universitet/Institutionen för medicinska vetenskaper

    Author : Ylva Zelleroth; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Introduction: Calcium is the trigger for muscle contraction and strict control ofintracellular calcium handling is fundamental for muscle function. Imbalances in theintracellular concentration of calcium caused by disturbances in the calcium ion pumps orcalcium channels may be responsible for different types of muscle disorders as myopathies.

  4. 4. Simulating Quantum Cascade Lasers with the Position and Energy Resolving Lindblad approach

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

    Author : Maitane Muñoz Basagoiti; [2019]
    Keywords : quantum cascade lasers; quantum transport; simulations; electron transport; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Over the past two decades, Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) have become an increasingly popular source for mid-infrared and terahertz radiation. Nowadays, their experimental development progresses fast with the aid of computer simulations. These reproduce carrier dynamics in the gain medium of the laser based on different transport models.

  5. 5. Cascade Matched Filtering & Adaptive Threshold Techniques on Optical Tracking Signals under AWGN

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för reglerteknik

    Author : Sebastian Elm; [2019]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A cascade matched filtering (CMF) approach is purposed for filtering rectangular pulse train tracking signals, with known signal characteristics, in an embedded signal detection unit. Two adaptive detection algorithms are suggested, adapting to alterations in noise signal characteristics, due to environmental changes. READ MORE
