Robust Multiscale Control-volume Methods for Reservoir Simulation
(The University of Bergen, 2012-04-30)
Ruin probability and optimal dividend policy for models with investment
(The University of Bergen, 2012-11-06)
In most countries the authorities impose capital requirements on insurance companies in order to avoid the adverse consequences to society when insurance companies default on claims. Since holding capital is costly, this ...
Security Analysis Of Lightweight Schemes for RFID Systems
(The University of Bergen, 2012-08-08)
This thesis mainly examines the security analysis of lightweight protocols proposed for providing security and privacy for RFID systems. To achieve this goal, first we give a brief introduction of RFID systems. The ...
Molecular characterisation of key components of the mucosal immune system in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L) and transcriptome analysis of responses against the salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis)
(The University of Bergen, 2012-04-17)
Mucosal immunity in mammals is mediated mainly by secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA), which is produced by IgA plasma cells commonly located in the lamina propria, and a transport system involving the polymeric Ig receptor ...
Transition metal isotope fractionation in marine hydrothermal deposits of the Mohns Ridge, North Atlantic Ocean
(The University of Bergen, 2012-08-24)
Seafloor hydrothermal vent systems form along mid-ocean ridges in all of the Earth’s oceans. They have a major impact on the chemical exchange between the lithosphere and the hydrosphere, as vast volumes of seawater cycle ...
Weichselian vegetation and palaeoenvironment in western Norway and northern Russia. Evidence from pollen analytical investigations
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-14)
This thesis focuses on the vegetation history and environmental changes in western Norway and northern Russia during the last glacial period (the Weichselian). Pollen grains deposited in lakes and bogs are used as the ...
Nuclear methods for subsea fluid characterization

Infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV): Evolution, genotyping, reservoirs and transmission
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-01)
The first officially registered outbreak of infectious salmon anaemia (ISA) started in Norway in November 1984 (Thorud and Djupvik, 1988). It was a chronically proceeding disease among Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) parr ...
Revealing the secrets of proteins: A triple-nuclear and multi-dimensional high-resolution NMR spectroscopy study
(The University of Bergen, 2012-08-28)
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is one of the major tools for studying the structure and dynamics of proteins in solution. The still ongoing development of new and improved pulse-sequences for multi-dimensional, ...
Synthesis of Some Nitrogen Heterocycles of Medicinal Relevance
(The University of Bergen, 2012-04-18)
In the first part of the project, two highly functionalized terminal alkynes, 3,3,4,4- tetraethoxybut-1-yne (TEB) and 1,1-diethoxy-but-3-yn-2-one (keto-TEB) have been used for the synthesis of 1,4-disubstituted ...
