  1. 1. Techno-economic analysis and simulation of low temperature district heating networks

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Energi och byggnadsdesign; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Ilia Iarkov; [2023]
    Keywords : Low-temperature district heating; Modelica; BTES; LCA; LCC; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The continuous increase in global energy consumption has led to a greater focus on the energy required for heating buildings. This thesis presents a techno-economic model for analysing low-temperature district heating networks coupled with a geothermal heat source. READ MORE

  2. 2. MetaStackVis: Visually-Assisted Performance Evaluation of Metamodels in Stacking Ensemble Learning

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för datavetenskap och medieteknik (DM)

    Author : Ilya Ploshchik; [2023]
    Keywords : Visualization; interaction; metamodels; validation metrics; predicted probabilities; stacking; stacked generalization; ensemble learning; machine learning;

    Abstract : Stacking, also known as stacked generalization, is a method of ensemble learning where multiple base models are trained on the same dataset, and their predictions are used as input for one or more metamodels in an extra layer. This technique can lead to improved performance compared to single layer ensembles, but often requires a time-consuming trial-and-error process. READ MORE

  3. 3. Improving player experience using Flow in Tower Defense game Daidala : A case study on improving Flow according to Sweetser & Wyeth's GameFlow criteria

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för speldesign

    Author : Mario Palleschi; Isak Larsson; [2023]
    Keywords : Flow; GameFlow; Quality Assurance; Qualitative Comparative Analysis; Research through Design;

    Abstract : Using a Research through Design approach, this research aims to utilize the criteria of Flow outlined by Csikszentmihályi in Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience (2014) and later adapted to videogames by Sweetser & Wyeth in GameFlow: a model for evaluating player enjoyment in games (2005) to improve the Tower Defense game Daidala by increasing players’ time spent in a state of Flow. This serves to provide future game designers with an example of how this model and these concepts can be applied when designing and developing a game. READ MORE

  4. 4. Rum för barn : ett gestaltningsförslag för Vaksalaskolans skolgård samt omgivande gaturum som ger plats för barn och unga

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

    Author : Klara Allenmark; Linnea Modalen Sjökvist; [2023]
    Keywords : Skolgård; samnyttjande; barnkonventionen; gaturum; lekvärden; lekgata; miljöerbjudande; rörelsefrihet;

    Abstract : 88% av Sveriges befolkning bor i tätorter, vilket endast utgör 1,3 % av Sveriges totala yta. Urbaniseringstrenden förväntas fortsätta och barns miljöer är de som försvinner först då konkurrensen om ytan är stor. Då barn spenderar majoriteten av sin vakna tid på skolan, får skolgården en allt viktigare roll i barns uppväxtmiljö. READ MORE

  5. 5. Robust Statistical Jump Models with Feature Selection

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Jonatan Persson; [2023]
    Keywords : Clustering; Jump; Feature selection; Robust; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : A large area in statistics and machine learning is cluster analysis. This field of research concerns the design of algorithms that allow computers to automatically categorize a set of observations into different groups in a reasonable way, without any prior information about which observations belongs to which group.
