  1. 1. The Impact of Weather on Residential Fires in Sweden: A Regression Analysis

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik; KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Viktor Reineck; Folke Ulfsparre; [2019]
    Keywords : Regression; Poisson; Negative binomial; Generalized linear models; Organizational theory; Regression; Poisson; Negativ binomial; Generaliserade linjära modeller; Organisationsteori;

    Abstract : The purpose of this report is to investigate possible relationships between the number of residential fires in Sweden and various weather parameters. The study is conducted based on a hypothesis as stated by the MSB, the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, that behavioral factors related to weather can have an influence on the number of residential fires.

  2. 2. Fire effects in a landscape of fear : food availability and perceived predation risk as potential determinants of patch utilization by herbivore prey

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : David Kymmell; [2019]
    Keywords : landscape of fear; forest fire effects; herbivore prey; camera trapping;

    Abstract : Context: A major effect of climatic change is the global increase in forest fires, which potentially creates an increase in food availability for herbivorous species. Also vegetation density and the numbers of tree logs increase in burned sites, and this is thought to influence the perceived risk of herbivore prey species, which affects their anti‐predator behaviour and thereby the patch utilization.

  3. 3. Modelling growth of Norway spruce on former agricultural lands in Latvia

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Andis Zvirgzdiņš; [2019]
    Keywords : Norway spruce plantations; young stands; height development; generalized algebraic difference approach; growth simulations;

    Abstract : Adequate growth forecasts are essential for forest management planning. In order to make such forecasts, accurate growth models are required. Due to the rapid growth of Norway spruce (L.) Karst. READ MORE

  4. 4. Browsing behaviour in complex ungulate multi-species systems in Southern Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : Jonatan Sandberg; [2019]
    Keywords : browsing pressure; interspecific competition; multi-species;

    Abstract : In recent years several of the ungulate species present in Sweden have increased in both densities and distribution. Browsing pressure has mainly been attributed to moose but recent research shows that with more complex ungulate ecosystems new interactions and connections might emerge. READ MORE

  5. 5. Purchase behaviour analysis in the retail industry using Generalized Linear Models

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Sofia Karlsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Generalized linear models; Algorithm; Historical transaction; Retail; Fashion; Recommendation engine;

    Abstract : This master thesis uses applied mathematicalstatistics to analyse purchase behaviour based on customer data of the Swedishbrand Indiska. The aim of the study is to build a model that can helppredicting the sales quantities of different product classes and identify whichfactors are the most significant in the different models and furthermore, tocreate an algorithm that can provide suggested product combinations in thepurchasing process.
