  1. 1. HJÄLP, vi krymper! En studie av anpassningsstrategier för en minskande befolkning i Strömsunds kommun

    Kandidat-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för ekonomi och samhälle

    Författare :Johanna Lundin; Teodor Wester; [2020-08-29]
    Nyckelord :Stad och land; Centrum och periferi; Landsbygdsutveckling; Krympa smart; degrowth; anpassning; tillväxtnorm; Demografi; kommunal planering; Strömsund;

    Sammanfattning : The global phenomenon of demographically shrinking communities presents challenges for planning authorities. A few partial strategies trying to address this can be found throughout Europe, but are there more universally appliable ones? In this study, we aim to find that out by the means of an interview study in the shrinking municipality of Strömsund, where public servants are interviewed in order to understand how the municipality is tackling the challenge and plan for shrinkage.

  2. 2. The demographic crisis in Europe – “Immigrants, welcome!” - A quantitative study of fertility and migrations rates in 27 European states 1997 and 2017

    Kandidat-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Författare :Alice Larsson; [2020-06-30]
    Nyckelord :Population decline; low fertility levels; replacement migration;

    Sammanfattning : The present study examines whether the demographic components fertility and migration are related among 27 European countries. From the 1970s fertility levels have decreased and the life expectancy has risen, which has led to both ageing and shrinking populations sizes in Europe. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Differences in tumor volume for treated glioblastoma patients examined with 18F-fluorothymidine PET and contrast-enhanced MRI

    Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå, Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Författare :Karolina Hedman; [2020]
    Nyckelord :PET MRI; positron emission tomography; magnetic resonance imaging; brain tumor; glioblastoma; image segmentation; adaptive thresholding; feature extraction; radiotracer; gadolinium; image processing; image analysis;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common and malignant primary brain tumor. It is a rapidly progressing tumor that infiltrates the adjacent healthy brain tissue and is difficult to treat. Despite modern treatment including surgical resection followed by radiochemotherapy and adjuvant chemotherapy, the outcome remains poor. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The Dynamics Behind Economic Shrinking and a Case of Recent Disappearance

    Magister-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen

    Författare :Clara Brettfeld; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Shrinking; Resilience; Ethiopia; Institutions; Business and Economics;

    Sammanfattning : The present research aims at finding the underlying factors that contributed to the recently observed disappearance of economic shrinking in Ethiopia, defined as negative rates of GDP per capita growth. Within the framework of the Theory of Shrinking (Broadberry & Wallis, 2017) it sheds light on structural, technological and demographic change, the occurrence of warfare as well as institutional change over the course of four decades.

  5. 5. Particle-Based Online Bayesian Learning of Static Parameters with Application to Mixture Models

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Författare :Rutger Fuglesang; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Statistics; applied mathematics; sequential monte carlo; SMC; Statistical inference; Statisk; sekventiell monte carlo; SMC; tillämpad matematik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the possibility of using Sequential Monte Carlo methods (SMC) to create an online algorithm to infer properties from a dataset, such as unknown model parameters. Statistical inference from data streams tends to be difficult, and this is particularly the case for parametric models, which will be the focus of this paper. LÄS MER
