  1. 1. Geographical expansion rate of a brown bear population in Fennoscandia and the factors explaining the directional variations

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Lisbet Hougaard Baklid; [2022]
    Keywords : Geography; GIS; brown bear; expansion rate; Ursus arctos; Fennoscandia; Sweden; barrier; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The brown bears, Ursus arctos L., in the Scandinavian peninsula were distributed in almost all counties before aimed reduction during the 1700-1900s (Swenson et al. 1995). From 1981-2013 the population increased more than five times (Chapron et al. READ MORE

  2. 2. Predicting the size of a company winning a procurement: an evaluation study of three classification models

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : Ellen Björkegren; [2022]
    Keywords : public procurement; classification; Linear Discriminant Analysis; Random Forests; Support Vector Machines;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the performance of the classification methods Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA), Random Forests (RF), and Support Vector Machines (SVM) are compared using procurement data to predict what size company will win a procurement. This is useful information for companies, since bidding on a procurement takes time and resources, which they can save if they know their chances of winning are low. READ MORE
