  2. 2. High-performance Monte Carlo Computations for Adhesive Bands Formation

    University essay from Karlstads universitet

    Author : Karim Ali Shah; [2022]
    Keywords : Lattice model; Monte Carlo method; ternary mixtures; evaporation; morphology formation; adhesive bands.;

    Abstract : We propose a lattice model for three stochastically interacting components that mimicsthe formation of the internal structure of adhesive bands via evaporating one component(the solvent) by thermal gradient. We use high-performance computing resources toinvestigate the formation of rubber-acrylate morphologies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Spatial Statistical Modelling of Insurance Claim Frequency

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Daniel Faller; [2022]
    Keywords : Insurance risk; claim frequency; Markov chain Monte Carlo MCMC ; Riemann manifold Metropolis adjusted Langevin algorithm MMALA ; spatial statistics; Gaussian Markov random field GMRF ; preconditioned Crank Nicolson Langevin algorithm pCNL ; Gibbs sampling; Bayesian hierarchical modelling; high dimensional; shrinkage prior; horseshoe prior; regularisation.; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : In this thesis a fully Bayesian hierarchical model that estimates the number of aggregated insurance claims per year for non-life insurances is constructed using Markov chain Monte Carlo based inference with Riemannian Langevin diffusion. Some versions of the model incorporate a spatial effect, viewed as the relative spatial insurance risk that originates from a policyholder's geographical location and where the relative spatial insurance risk is modelled as a continuous spatial field.
