  1. 1. Context Sensitive Civic Duty : An Experimental Study of how Corruption Affects both a Duty to Vote and a Duty to Abstain

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Simon Engström; [2021]
    Keywords : electoral turnout; voting; abstention; civic duty; civic duty to vote; civic duty to abstain; expressive voting; expressive non-voting; expressive abstention; rational choice; public choice; calculus of voting; utility maximization; rationality; Kant; kantianism;

    Abstract : In this thesis I explore a novel context sensitive conceptualisation of civic duty according to which the conduct (or misconduct) of elected officials affects whether eligible voters feel either a duty to vote (DTV) or a duty to abstain (DTA). Specifically, I argue that under conditions of corruption the norm of electoral accountability may override peoples’ sense of DTV in which case they instead feel a DTA. READ MORE

  2. 2. Who's there? : monologues on painting, indexicality and perception. A thinking process.

    University essay from Konstfack/Institutionen för Konst (K)

    Author : Eva Spikbacka; [2021]
    Keywords : art; painting; contemporary; perception; labour; aesthetics; the sublime; Immanuel Kant; Rudolf Otto; ugliness; indexicality;

    Abstract : What we encounter in painting is not so much the authentically revealed self of the painter, but rather signs that insinuate that this absent self is somewhat present in it. /Isabelle Graw/ So, then what is a painting? Perhaps it is all about time, a certain amount of time in the constant murmuring stream of consciousness and the unconscious. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analysis of 5G Edge Computing solutions and APIs from an E2E perspective addressing the developer experience

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Jitendra Manocha; [2021]
    Keywords : Edge Computing; MEC; 5G; Latency; URLLC; APIs; Network Exposure Function; ETSI MEC ISG; 3GPP SA6; Hyper-scale; OSBA; Open Service Broker API; Edge Computing; MEC; 5G; Latency; URLLC; APIs; Network Exposure Function; ETSI MEC ISG; 3GPP SA6; Web skala; Hyper-scale; OSBA; Open Service Broker API;

    Abstract : Edge Computing is considered one of the key capabilities in next generation (5G) networks, which will enable inundation of latency, throughput, and data sensitive edge-native applications. Edge application developers require infrastructure at the edge to host the application workload and network connectivity procedures to connect the application users to the nearest edge where the application workload is hosted.

  5. 5. Topological properties of flat bands in generalized Kagome lattice materials

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Daniela Pinto Dias; [2021]
    Keywords : tight-binding; topological insulators; flat bands; edge states; honeycomb-Kagome lattice; tätt bindande modell; topologiska isolatorer; platta band; kanttillstånder; bikakan-Kagome gitter;

    Abstract : Topological insulators are electronic materials that behave like an ordinary insulator in their bulk but have robust conducting states on their edge. Besides, in some materials the band structure presents completely flat bands, a special feature leading to strong interactions effects. READ MORE
