  1. 1. Development of polymer based composite filaments for 3D printing

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad materialvetenskap

    Author : Elin Åkerlund; [2019]
    Keywords : 3D-printing; fused deposition modeling FDM ; composite filaments; biocompatible materials; biodegradability; medical applications; scaffold materials; poly lactic acid PLA ; polycaprolactone PCL ; hydroxyapatite HA ; mechanical properties; thermal stability; chemical composition; morphological characterization; accelerated degradation study; polymer degradation behavior;

    Abstract : The relatively new and still growing field of 3D-printing has opened up the possibilities to manufacture patient-specific medical devices with high geometrical accuracy in a precise and quick manner. Additionally, biocompatible materials are a demand for all medical applications while biodegradability is of importance when developing scaffolds for tissue growth for instance. READ MORE

  2. 2. Aggregating predictions using Non-Disclosed Conformal Prediction

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : Robin Carrión Brännström; [2019]
    Keywords : Conformal Prediction; Non-Disclosed Conformal Prediction; Support Vector Regression; Reliable Machine Learning;

    Abstract : When data are stored in different locations and pooling of such data is not allowed, there is an informational loss when doing predictive modeling. In this thesis, a new method called Non-Disclosed Conformal Prediction (NDCP) is adapted into a regression setting, such that predictions and prediction intervals can be aggregated from different data sources without interchanging any data.

  3. 3. Adaptive Evolution of Resource Use, Phenotypic Diversity, and Productivity of Phytoplankton Communities

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Nils Hellekant; [2019]
    Keywords : Adaptive Dynamics; phenotype; phytoplankton; plankton; BEF; Biodiversity; diversity; Spatial modeling; Ecosystem function; Evolution; Diversity;

    Abstract : There is growing concern that the worldwide loss in biodiversity will harm the stability of the ecosystems, and thereby, the carrying capacity and critical ecosystem services the biosphere provides. Phytoplankton (microalgae) in lakes and oceans are arguably the most important primary producers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Portfolio Optimization with Catastrophe Bonds

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för finansiell ekonomi

    Author : Tianfang Zhang; [2019]
    Keywords : Catastrophe bonds; Poisson processes; Portfolio theory; Value-at-risk; Conditional value-at-risk;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates properties of the returns of catastrophe bonds and their risk diversification potential in portfolios. Ideas from existing literature, such as modeling the evolution of the outstanding principal as a compound Poisson process, are extended to take into account the times of occurrence of the loss events, which are important for the returns of catastrophe bonds with certain types of payment structure.

  5. 5. Quantifying Competition Damages - EU Competition Law and the Right to Full Compensation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Juridiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Juridiska fakulteten

    Author : Carolina Sahlborg Arroyo; [2019]
    Keywords : Competition Law; EU Law; Law Regarding Damages; Law and Economics; Law and Political Science;

    Abstract : Den Europeiska Unionen utgör ett överstatligt samarbete mellan medlemsstaterna och dess viktigaste mål är en konkurrenskraftig inre marknad. Konkurrensrätten utgör ett vitalt verktyg för EU:s upprätthållande av konkurrensen på marknaden och genomdrivs huvudsakligen av Kommissionen. READ MORE
