  1. 1. Prediction of Conversion Rates in Online Marketing - A study of the application of logistic regression for predicting conversion rates in online marketing.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Marcus Olausson; [2018]
    Keywords : Online marketing; conversion rates; logistic regression; latent variables; machine learning; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : This thesis was written in collaboration with an anonymous European automotive company, Company X, which uses online marketing as a part of their business model. In online marketing it is of inrest to estimate conversion rates, that is the quota of a population at an initial state that will go on to perform a certain action. READ MORE

    Abstract : Understanding events’ impact on financial instruments are crucial for the participants in the financial markets. Here we propose an approach to model an anticipated event’s impact on the prices of FX options, represented in implied volatility. READ MORE

  3. 3. Audio representation for environmental sound classification using convolutional neural networks

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH

    Author : Linus Lexfors; Malte Johansson; [2018]
    Keywords : Sound classification; machine learning; cnn; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : A convolutional neural network (CNN) training framework is described and implemented. The framework is used to train and evaluate an audio classification system, focused on evaluating differences in audio representation. The dataset used is ESC-50, containing 50 different classes of audio. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the Fourier Collocation Method

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH

    Author : Henrik Lindell; [2018]
    Keywords : Numerical Analysis; PDE; Partial Differential Equations; Numerical Linear Algebra; Mathematics; Fourier; Collocation; Numerical; Linear Algebra; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : This BSc thesis focuses on trying to find approximate solutions to partial differential equations using the Fourier collocation method. This method uses Fourier basis functions to approximate the solution to a partial differential equation with periodic boundary conditions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Trends in Flooding in Europe and North America - an Extreme Value Approach

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Axel Ström; [2018]
    Keywords : Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : This study examines minimally altered catchments in Europe and North America in order to determine whether any changes to the dynamics of flooding have occurred due to changes in the climate. By examining the parameters of the Generalized Extreme Value (GEV) distributions of in- dividual catchments it is possible to determine not just if changes in flood patterns have occurred, but also the nature of these changes.
