  1. 1. Urban development consequences of the riverine floods in the Western Balkans: Analysing Belgrade

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet

    Author : Santiago Lema Burgos; [2020]
    Keywords : Urban resilience; flooding risk reduction; land use plan; flood preparedness; flood adaptation.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Rapid urbanisation coupled with unplanned development create the perfect recipe for a disaster, the risk of which has increased with climate change-related uncertainties. Belgrade’s high population growth rate and exposure to riverine flooding presents such a case. READ MORE

  2. 2. INTERMEDIATE-SCALE TESTS AND CONE CALORIMETER TESTS - FIRE BEHAVIOUR OF SELECTED FACADE MATERIALS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Tanja Cernosa; [2020]
    Keywords : Fire behaviour; Intermediate-scale facade tests; cone calorimeter; stone wool; phenolic foam; WRB; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the last few years, the implementation of well-ventilated façades in buildings increased due to their improved energy performance. However, their double-wall construction due to the limited airflow within an air cavity represents a significant fire risk, since the flames that spread into the air cavity can elongate up to ten times.

  3. 3. On the Proxy Modelling of Risk-Neutral Default Probabilities

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Edvin Lundström; [2020]
    Keywords : Counterparty Credit Risk; Credit Valuation Adjustment; CVA; Credit modelling; Reduced form model; Proxy model; Hazard rate; Cross-section model; Nomura model; Motpartsrisk; Kreditvärderingsjustering; CVA; Kreditmodellering; Proxymodellering; Nomuramodellen;

    Abstract : Since the default of Lehman Brothers in 2008, it has become increasingly important to measure, manage and price the default risk in financial derivatives. Default risk in financial derivatives is referred to as counterparty credit risk (CCR). The price of CCR is captured in Credit Valuation Adjustment (CVA). READ MORE

  4. 4. The performance of inverse probability of treatment weighting and propensity score matching for estimating marginal hazard ratios

    Author : Jonatan Nåtman; [2019]
    Keywords : Monte Carlo simulations; propensity score; survival analysis; Cox model; censoring rate; sample size;

    Abstract : Propensity score methods are increasingly being used to reduce the effect of measured confounders in observational research. In medicine, censored time-to-event data is common. READ MORE
