  1. 1. Compilation and evaluation of validations of computer codes for spent nuclear fuel – a review

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kärnfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Staffan Fors; [2019]
    Keywords : Nuclear fuel; Kärnbränsle; Slutförvar; Fissionsprodukter; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This report describes a systematic review regarding validations of calculations by measurements of isotopic compositions, or decay heat, on spent nuclear fuel, SNF. 15 relevant or otherwise interesting studies, were found. Two reports were chosen among the found studies and analyzed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of a DC Beam Model for the First Prototype of the ESS Virtual Machine

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kärnfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Benjamin Bolling; [2019]
    Keywords : Particle; Accelerator; Beam; Physics; Science; Virtual Machine; Virtual; Machine; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The European Spallation Source is currently under construction in Lund, Sweden. Consisting of a linear accelerator delivering an unprecedented 5 MW proton beam to the spallation source, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies of Possible QGP Estimators in proton-proton Collisions

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Anna Önnerstad; [2019]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This thesis presents studies of three different Quark-Gluon Plasma estimators in proton-proton collisions using what is currently believed to be quark-gluon plasma observables; radial flow, elliptic flow and strangeness enhancement. The three tested estimators were Transverse Spherocity, an altered version of Transverse Spherocity where all p_T was put to one, and a newly developed estimator called Mid-Forward. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fitting the three loop pion mass and decay constant to lattice data

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Beräkningsbiologi och biologisk fysik; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för astronomi och teoretisk fysik

    Author : Alexandra Wernersson; [2019]
    Keywords : Chiral Perturbation Theory; Lattice QCD; pion mass; decay constant; three loop fit.; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : We perform a fit to three loop order (NNNLO) in Chiral perturbation theory of the pion mass and decay constant. In particular we investigate if the NNNLO fit is an improvement of the fit to two loop order (NNLO) to lattice QCD data, which was done in a lattice gauge group collaboration. READ MORE

  5. 5. Microarray Quality Control using Artificial Neural Networks

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för astronomi och teoretisk fysik; Lunds universitet/Beräkningsbiologi och biologisk fysik

    Author : Emil Andersson; [2019]
    Keywords : Artificial Neural Network; ANN; Microarray; Quality Control; Automated Quality Control; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : When using antibody microarrays to diagnose diseases, the process of quality control of the microarray data is an important step. Currently, a part of this process is performed manually by visual inspection. READ MORE
