  1. 1. A Spatial Analysis of Homicide Crime’s Distribution and Association with Deprivation in Stockholm Between 2010-2017

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Dennis Lindell Schettini; [2019]
    Keywords : GIS; homicide; deprivation; hot spot; generalized regression; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : A Spatial Analysis of Homicide Crime’s Distribution and Association with Deprivation in Stockholm Between 2010-2017 Homicide crimes are rare events depending on numerous factors and tend to be distributed differently based on geographic location. The use of spatial analysis is substantively important for detecting different predictors in varying geographic areas and for the diffusion process of homicide crimes. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Impact of Weather on Residential Fires in Sweden: A Regression Analysis

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik; KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Viktor Reineck; Folke Ulfsparre; [2019]
    Keywords : Regression; Poisson; Negative binomial; Generalized linear models; Organizational theory; Regression; Poisson; Negativ binomial; Generaliserade linjära modeller; Organisationsteori;

    Abstract : The purpose of this report is to investigate possible relationships between the number of residential fires in Sweden and various weather parameters. The study is conducted based on a hypothesis as stated by the MSB, the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, that behavioral factors related to weather can have an influence on the number of residential fires.

  3. 3. Trade Facilitation: How the burden of documentary and border procedures impact exports to the EU

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Mårten Randau; Camilla Wenzel; [2019]
    Keywords : Trade Facilitation; Documentary Compliance; Border Compliance; Gravity Model; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : How to increase trade flows in today's globalized world is a relevant topic and the incentives to do so are exemplified by the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement that came into force in 2017. Inefficient trade procedures have proven to aggravate and decrease trade. READ MORE

  4. 4. Constraints on the Kaluza-Klein Photon as a Dark Matter Candidate from the IceCube Collaboration Results

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Högenergifysik

    Author : Miquel Colom i Bernadich; [2019]
    Keywords : dark matter; WIMP; Kaluza-Klein; IceCube; neutrinos; muon neutrinos; muons;

    Abstract : New constraints on the scattering cross sections of the Kaluza Klein photon as a darkmatter candidate, its annihilation rate in the Sun and the resulting muon flux on Earth are derived.For this purpose, data collected in the IceCube Neutrino Observatory during 532 days of exposurein the austral winters between 2011 and 2014 have been analyzed with Poisson confidence intervals (J.

  5. 5. Portfolio Optimization with Catastrophe Bonds

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för finansiell ekonomi

    Author : Tianfang Zhang; [2019]
    Keywords : Catastrophe bonds; Poisson processes; Portfolio theory; Value-at-risk; Conditional value-at-risk;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates properties of the returns of catastrophe bonds and their risk diversification potential in portfolios. Ideas from existing literature, such as modeling the evolution of the outstanding principal as a compound Poisson process, are extended to take into account the times of occurrence of the loss events, which are important for the returns of catastrophe bonds with certain types of payment structure.
