  1. 1. Field study of the drought’s impact on feeding strategy and biological parameters in early lactation dairy cattle

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Author : Mikaela Würtz; [2019]
    Keywords : dairy cattle; drought; energy balance; feeding; metabolism;

    Abstract : The summer of 2018 was unusually warm and dry. For animal production, this resulted in poor pastures, reduced harvests of crops, such as roughage and grains, and increased risk for heat stress in the animals. The drought led to problems as in shortage of animal feed, which made the feeding of dairy cattle difficult. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Acute Metabolic Response of Intermittent Hypoxic Resistance Exercise : A Cross-Over RCT

    University essay from Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan, GIH/Institutionen för idrotts- och hälsovetenskap

    Author : Jonas Falgin Hultgren; [2019]
    Keywords : Intermittent Resistaypoxic resistance exercise; lactate accumulation; cross-over RCT; RCT; Random Controlled Trial; healthy; men; blood; plasma; styrketräning; hypoxi; normoxi; saturation; laktat; ansamling; ph; blod; plasma; tung styrketräning; metabolisk; respons; randomiserad; kontrollerad; experiment; friska; unga; män; skelettmuskulatur;

    Abstract : Aim The aim for this present study was to investigate the acute metabolic response from intermittent resistance exercise during hypoxia, with the following research questions: (1) Are blood levels of lactate and glucose different between hypoxia and normoxia? (2) Does hypoxia induce higher lactate accumulation and pH reduction in the human skeletal muscle? (3) Is there a relationship between plasma-, blood- and muscle lactate? Method Eight healthy males (30 ± 2 years) performed 6 sets of unilateral leg extension on each leg (75% of 1RM) with randomized normoxic (20,9% inspired 𝑂2) and normobaric hypoxic (12% inspired 𝑂2) conditions. A total of 5 muscle biopsies was extracted from m. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies of Possible QGP Estimators in proton-proton Collisions

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

    Author : Anna Önnerstad; [2019]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This thesis presents studies of three different Quark-Gluon Plasma estimators in proton-proton collisions using what is currently believed to be quark-gluon plasma observables; radial flow, elliptic flow and strangeness enhancement. The three tested estimators were Transverse Spherocity, an altered version of Transverse Spherocity where all p_T was put to one, and a newly developed estimator called Mid-Forward. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Effects of Probiotics on High Sugar-Induced Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Symptoms in Drosophila melanogaster

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för hälsa och lärande

    Author : Yasser Al-Ghamdi; [2019]
    Keywords : Diabetes; Biomedicine; PEPCK; FOXO; Fbp; Hex-t1; Zw; Drosophila; Melanogaster; Longevity; Probiotics;

    Abstract : Background: Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder characterized by the rise of fasting plasma glucose from its normal range (≥125mg/dl). It is marked by insufficient production of insulin from pancreatic β-cells as a result of failed compensation due to insulin resistance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Assessing the impact of floating-point precision in plasma simulations : A study of precision reduction and precisionrefinement in iPIC3D

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

    Author : Svante Sörberg; Simon Tran Florén; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis explores how the precision of floating-point numbers affects the high-performance, implicit particle-in-cell plasma simulation software iPIC3D. We investigate whether a version of iPIC3D, modified to use floatingpoint numbers in lower precision than the current 64 bit double-precision, could yield accurate simulations in comparison with the current version.
