  1. 1. Development of a computational method for determining gamma energy escape from calorimeters at CLAB

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Author : Amela Mehic; [2022]
    Keywords : Nuclear physics; Calorimeter; SNF; MCNP; Dose rate; CLAB; Gamma energy; Fuel assembly; Form function; Attenuation coefficient; Gamma spectroscopy;

    Abstract : Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company- SKB has conducted measurement campaigns at the Swedish central interim storage facility for spent nuclear fuel- CLAB over the years, extending from year 2003 to 2019 where the gamma energy escape was acquired. At CLAB the spent nuclear fuel assembly is inserted into the calorimeter; device intended to measure temperature increase due to decay heat from the fuel assembly. READ MORE

  2. 2. Optimizing the Cash Reserve in a Portfolio of US Life Insurance Policies

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Produktionsekonomi

    Author : Alva Happe; Wassim Seifeddine; [2022]
    Keywords : portfolio optimization; risk management; monte carlo; value at risk; life settlements; longevity risk; cash reserve; closed-end fund;

    Abstract : Hoarding a too large cash reserve is often unfavourable due to lost investment opportunities. Similarly, an insufficient cash reserve can be detrimental, as one might fail to meet payment obligations. Finding the optimal balance is nothing that is done in the blink of an eye, particularly when the underlying variable is stochastic, e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Benchmarking a memetic algorithm for global all-atom protein-protein docking with backbone flexibility

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Vera Karlin; [2022]
    Keywords : biochemistry; EvoDOCK; algorithm; protein; iRMSD; DockQ; CAPRI; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Determining how proteins interact with each other to form complexes is very important for understanding both disease and cellular functions, but experimentally determining the structures of these complexes is both tedious and slow, which is why a great number of protein-protein docking algorithms have been developed to predict them. To this day, conformational changes in protein backbones have been one of the largest challenges when making docking predictions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Automation and design in observational causal inference

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : Mattias Tajik; [2022]
    Keywords : Causal Inference; Genetic Matching; Entropy Balancing; Propensity Score;

    Abstract : The use of automated procedures has recently become popular in the causal inference literature. Naive implementations of automatic procedures stand in contrast to the perspective advocated in Imbens and Rubin's Causal Inference. Imbens and Rubin suggest that researchers should make modelling decisions informed by subjective knowledge. READ MORE

  5. 5. Optimization and Bayesian Modeling of Road Distance for Inventory of Potholes in Gävle Municipality

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : Timothy Rafael Lindblom; Oskar Tollin; [2022]
    Keywords : Traveling salesman problem; Bayesian inference; Simulated annealing; Nearest neighbour algorithm; Markov Chain Monte Carlo; MCMC; Potholes; Haversine formula; Metropolis-Hastings; Posterior predictive distribution; Handelsresande problemet; bayesiansk inferens; simulerad anlöpning; nearest neighbour algorithm; Markov Chain Monte Carlo; MCMC; potthål; storcirkelavstånd; Metropolis-Hastings; posterior predictive distribution;

    Abstract : Time management and distance evaluation have long been a difficult task for workers and companies. This thesis studies 6712 pothole coordinates in Gävle municipality, and evaluates the minimal total road distance needed to visit each pothole once, and return to an initial pothole. READ MORE
