Improving Efficiency in Parameter Estimation Using the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo Algorithm
(The University of Bergen, 2008)
This thesis investigates three approaches to improve the performance of the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo algorithm. The first approach enhances the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo by suppressing random walk in the Gibbs sampling using ...
Computational analysis of the evolutionary dynamics of proteins on a genomic scale
(The University of Bergen, 2007-01-16)
Biology is primarily concerned with the study of all phenotypic aspects of living organisms and evolutionary biology is more specifically interested in elucidating how different phenotypes evolved. Proteins (and RNA ...
Automatic Differentiation of Third Order Derivatives using Forward Mode in C++
(The University of Bergen, 2009-01-07)
Automatic differentiation of third order derivatives is implemented in C++. The implementation uses uses object-orientation and operator overloading to perform the differentiation. A short introduction to operator ...
Dynamic Content Manager for E-Learning
(The University of Bergen, 2008-11-18)
Dynamic content manager for E-Learning project is developed as the partial fulfillment of master studies under the supervision of yngve lamo Ph.D and Khalid Azim Mughal Ph.D.
Støtte for Geodata i Dynamic Presentation Generator
(The University of Bergen, 2012-01-27)
Generalized Bent and/or Negabent Constructions
(The University of Bergen, 2012-04-27)
In this thesis, we generalize the Maiorana-McFarland construction for bent, negabent and bent-negabent Boolean functions and describe a way to computationally search for constructions using these generalizations. We present ...
Prediction of Polycomb/Trithorax Response Elements using Support Vector Machines
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-03)
Polycomb/Trithorax Response Elements (PREs) are epigenetic elements that can maintain established transcriptional states over multiple cell divisions. Sequence motifs in known PREs have enabled genome-wide PRE prediction ...
Diagram Predicate Framework meets Model Versioning and Deep Metamodelling
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-07)
Model-driven engineering (MDE) is a branch of software engineering which aims at improving the productivity, quality and cost-effectiveness of software by shifting the paradigm from code-centric to model-centric. MDE ...
Testing with Concepts and Axioms in C++
(University of Bergen, Department of Informatics, 2008-10)
Modern development practices encourage extensive testing of code while it is still under development, using unit tests to check individual code units in isolation. Such tests are typically case-based, checking a likely ...
Expressive Visualization and Rapid Interpretation of Seismic Volumes
(The University of Bergen, 2009-10-27)
One of the most important resources in the world today is energy. Oil and gas provide two thirds of the world energy consumption, making the world completely dependent on it. Locating and recovering the remaining oil and ...
