  1. 1. The Collapse of Decoherence : Can Decoherence Theory Solve The Problems of Measurement?

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Materialteori

    Author : Karl Herlin; [2023]
    Keywords : quantum mechanics; quantum physics; philosophy of physics; interpretation of quantum mechanics; measurement problem; problem of preferred basis; problem of non-observability of interference; problem of definite outcomes; environment induced superselection rules; copenhagen interpretation; decoherence; irreducibility of classical concepts;

    Abstract : In this review study, we ask ourselves if decoherence theory can solve the problems of measurement in quantum mechanics. After an introduction to decoherence theory, we present the problem of preferred basis, the problem of non-observability of interference and the problem of definite outcomes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investigation of the basic mechanics of edge cracking in sheet aluminum forming

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för maskinteknik

    Author : Hamidreza Bayat; Mohammad Abbasi; [2023]
    Keywords : Open Hole tensile test; Digital Image Correlation; Strain Rate; Istra 4D; Thickness reduction rate;

    Abstract : As technology is developing in all automotive companies, car body designers have also investigated new materials such as composite and aluminum alloys. Designing modern car structures has also created various challenges in the production process, including formability limitations. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the possibility of property composition: A metaphysical investigation of submergent properties in top-down and bottom-up approaches to quantum mechanics

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för filosofi, lingvistik och vetenskapsteori

    Author : Nova Ahlinder; [2022-01-25]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In Schaffer’s Monism: priority of the whole (2010) an argument from quantum entanglement in favour of priority monism is put forward. The argument is based on quantum entanglement being a case of emergence and can loosely be described in terms of failure of property decomposition and success of property composition. READ MORE

  4. 4. Toxicity in the game World of Tanks: A participant observation ethnography, thematic analysis, content analysis and autoethnography

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för speldesign

    Author : Sasa Dzigurski; [2022]
    Keywords : toxicity; MMOG; World of Tanks; gamesplaining; ableism; sarcasm; male preserve; sexism; fragile masculinity; Social Identity model of Deindividuation Effect;

    Abstract : Previous research has studied toxicity in World of Tanks game with a focus on precursors of toxicity, player performance in the game from the perspective of gender-performance gap or observing the players' major behaviors instigated by various situations within the game. This research focuses on player's behavior in the game chat with an emphasis on toxic behavior by using participant observation ethnography, thematic analysis, content analysis and autoethnography.

  5. 5. Topology optimization: perimeter restriction using total variation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Hållfasthetslära; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : Jonas Fredriksson; [2022]
    Keywords : Topology optimization; structural optimization; solid mechanics; total variation; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Topology optimization is a method used to find optimal material distributions, within a specified domain, with respect to some performance measure. To avoid various artifacts to appear in the suggested design, the solution space is typically restricted, where some restriction methods allow different length scales to be controlled in the design.
