  1. 1. Defining Nature: Who’s Talking? The concept of nature in legal cases with Rights of Nature in Ecuador : a frame/framing analysis of interpretations of nature, underlying factors and recommended actions

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Author : Laura Elisabeth Wolf; [2019]
    Keywords : rights of nature; Ecuador; framing; frames; nature; Ecuadorian constitutional court; defining nature; social constructivism;

    Abstract : Since 2008, the Ecuadorian constitution grants intrinsic rights to nature.

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för redovisning och finansiering

    Author : Barbora Gajarova; Xurui Qin; [2019]
    Keywords : equity valuation; paradoxical company; hedonic regression; residual income valuation RIV model; pricing errors;

    Abstract : Traditional valuation models that are widely used by investors and scholars, for instance, residual income valuation (RIV) model, do not yield accurate results when valuing paradoxical companies, i.e. companies with the market value significantly above the book value and high growth, despite not generating positive payoffs.

    Keywords : Anomaly Detection; Sequential Data; Semi-supervised Learning; Recurrent Neural Network; Applied Mathematics; Anomalidetektion; sekventiell data; halv-övervakad maskininlärning; återkommande neuralt nätverk; tillämpad matematik.;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the use of unsupervised and semi-supervised machine learning techniques was analyzed as potential tools for anomaly detection in the sensor network that the electrical system in a Scania truck is comprised of. The experimentation was designed to analyse the need for both point and contextual anomaly detection in this setting. READ MORE

  5. 5. Diffusion MRI of Brain Tissue: Importance of Axonal Trajectory

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

    Author : Jan Brabec; [2018]
    Keywords : dMRI; diffusion magnetic resonance; axonal trajectory; axonal geometry; undulations; modeling; axons; inverse problem; diffusion spectrum; time-dependent diffusion; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Obtaining microstructural information non-invasively on brain tissue remains a challenge. Diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) is an imaging method that can provide such information. That includes geometrical considerations of nerve cells projections, axons, that are present in the white matter of the human brain. READ MORE
