  1. 1. A STUDY ON THE DCC-GARCH MODEL’S FORECASTING ABILITY WITH VALUE-AT-RISK APPLICATIONS ON THE SCANDINAVIAN FOREIGN EXCHANGE MARKET

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statistiska institutionen; Uppsala universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : Tim Andersson-Säll; Johan Lindskog; [2019]
    Keywords : Multivariate GARCH; Conditional Correlations; Forecasting; Time-varying covariance matrices; Exchange rate returns; Variance-Covariance matrix;

    Abstract : This thesis has treated the subject of DCC-GARCH model’s forecasting ability and Value-at- Risk applications on the Scandinavian foreign exchange market. The estimated models were based on daily opening foreign exchange spot rates in the period of 2004-2013, which captured the information in the financial crisis of 2008 and Eurozone crisis in the early 2010s.

  2. 2. A comparative study of ZnO i-layer deposited with ALD and PVD for CIGS solar cells

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Fasta tillståndets elektronik

    Author : Joel Johansson Byberg; [2019]
    Keywords : CIGS; ZnO; ZnMgO; solar cells; thin film; zinc oxide; window layer; ALD; PVD;

    Abstract : Two identified setbacks for CIGS based devices in order to obtain higher efficiency are parasitic absorption in the window layer structure and losses in open-circuit voltage due to bad interfaces. This study investigated how the performance of the solar cell is affected by depositing intrinsic ZnO (i-ZnO) and ZnMgO with atomic layer deposition (ALD) instead of the conventional sputtering.

  3. 3. When Traditional Power Structures are Trembling : A qualitative analysis of aid agencies focus on gender roles and contribution to potential changes in those following the earthquakes in Nepal 2015.

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Elina Hedman; [2019]
    Keywords : Disaster; gender; women; vulnerability; humanitarian aid; earthquake; Nepal; empowerment; window of opportunity; double disaster; qualitative content analysis.;

    Abstract : This thesis examines how and to what extent humanitarian aid organizations strategically focus on gender roles following disasters, and how they contribute to potential changes in gender roles. The case selected for the study is Nepal after the 2015 earthquakes where the reports of four international humanitarian aid organizations were examined through a qualitative content analysis.

  4. 4. Robust header compression for cellular IoT

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik

    Author : Måns Ansgariusson; Axel Wihlborg-Rasmusen; [2019]
    Keywords : RoHC; Robust Header Compression; IoT; Cellular IoT; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In this Master Thesis we aim to evaluate the Robust Header Compression protocol in cel- lular IoT. The initial results show that RoHC may decrease the energy consumption signif- icantly due to its reduction of the header size. The reduction in the header size decreases the required transmission window which in turn decreases the energy consumption. READ MORE

  5. 5. Resistance Spot Welding of ALSI-coated UHSS : An experimental study

    University essay from KTH/Materialvetenskap

    Author : Kristofer Hjelmtorp; [2019]
    Keywords : RSW; resistance spot welding; usibor; boron steel;

    Abstract : The automotive industry of today faces ever harder requirements from regulatory bodies to increase the fuel efficiency, reduce the carbon footprint and increase the safety of their vehicles. The problem is being tackled in different ways; one of them being the use of innovative materials to reduce the overall weight while improving the crash safety of the vehicle. READ MORE
