  1. 1. A deep learning approach for predicting outcomes of triple-negative breast cancer

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH

    Author : Arvid Larsson; [2021]
    Keywords : Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Triple-negative breast cancer affects 10-20% of breast cancer patients and is associated with an especially bad prognosis. Today, tissue slides are assessed manually by a clinician to set a prognosis. However, the prediction of outcomes could possibly be improved using machine learning. READ MORE

  2. 2. An almost algebraic proof of the fundamental theorem of algebra

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH; Lunds universitet/Matematik (naturvetenskapliga fakulteten)

    Author : David Kamali; [2021]
    Keywords : algebrans fundamentalsats; Sylows satser; kroppteori; Galoisteori; fundamental theorem of algebra; group theory; Sylow theorems; Galois Theory; field theory; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : By the results of the Sylow theorems, algebraic extension theorems and Galois theory, we shall prove the fundamental theorem of algebra, which states that the set of complex numbers is algebraically closed. This process of abstraction will provide an almost algebraic proof of the theorem and thereby supply us with a tool in solving many questions within the field of mathematics. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ranking - Katalysatorn bakom Strategisk Prissättning

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : William Ramshage; [2021]
    Keywords : Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : The growing expansion of price comparison sites, where shops are compared and ranked in order of lowest prices, has contributed to reduced friction and transaction costs for consumers. Previous research in this field of study has primarily relied on examining the relationships between ranking and consumers’ demand for the resellers’ products. READ MORE

  4. 4. Factor Analysis of Ordinal Variables: Polychoric and Pearson correlations in the exploratory approach

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : Theodor Emanuelsson; [2021]
    Keywords : Exploratory factor analysis; Polychoric correlation; Pearson correlation; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : This thesis considers the problem of applying exploratory factor analysis to data obtained though the Likert scale. It is often the case that this sort of data is treated as an interval level of measurement and used in analyses that require continuous variables, although given the categorization and nature of the scale, it should rather be treated as of ordinal level.

  5. 5. A CROSS-COUNTRY STUDY ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF INQUIRY-BASED AND TRADITIONAL DIDACTIC APPROACHES

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för pedagogik och specialpedagogik

    Author : Kadir Isik; [2020-09-10]
    Keywords : Inquiry-based approach; traditional didactic approach; science instruction;

    Abstract : Aim : In past decades, teacher practices in science teaching have changed from perceived traditional ways of teaching to more inquiry-based approaches. The driving force behind this change is the assumption of inquiry-based approach being more effective in terms of student science achievement than the traditional didactic approach. READ MORE
