Computer-aided proofs and algorithms in analysis
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-14)
The computational power has increased dramatically since the appearance of the first computers, making them a vital tool in the analysis of dynamical systems. We present further applications of those two basic ideas, ...
Histological type and grade of breast cancer tumors by parity, age at birth, and time since birth: a register-based study in Norway
(BioMed Central, 2010-05-21)
Background Some studies have indicated that reproductive factors affect the risk of histological types of breast cancer differently. The long-term protective effect of a childbirth is preceded by a short-term adverse ...
Nivådeling i matematikk på ungdomsskolen - en kvalitativ undersøkelse
(The University of Bergen, 2012-05-30)
I Kunnskapløftet, K06, legges det stor vekt på tilpasset opplæring til hver enkelt elev. Flere ungdomsskoler har innført nivådeling i matematikk som et tiltak for å imøtekomme dette kravet. I Norge står enhetsskoletanken ...
Gonality of Points in Brill-Noether Loci of the Moduli Space of Curves
(The University of Bergen, 2012-05-31)
In this masterthesis we study the geometry of the points in the Brill-Noether locus. Typically, we want to study the gonality of points in this locus, that can be seen as projective curves. We also study what curves ...
Risk of Leakage versus Depth of Injection in Geological Storage
One of the outstanding challenges for large-scale CCS operations is to develop reliable quantitative risk assessments with a focus on leakage of both injected CO2 and displaced brine. A critical leakage pathway is associated ...
Critical Measures and Parameter Space of Jenkins-Strebel Quadratic Differentials
(The University of Bergen, 2012-05-07)
The thesis is devoted to applications of the theory of quadratic differentials to the problems of construction of critical measures, that provide critical values of the logarithmic energy of a charge system on the ...
A New Preconditioner for Iterative Phase Splitting Routines
(The University of Bergen, 2002)
This thesis proposes a new, faster, non-iterative phase split estimate for multi component mixtures, and compares it with the previously published method of Wang and Stenby, in terms of their suitability as possible ...
A Continuous Max-Flow Approach to Minimal Partitions with Label Cost Prior
(The authors, 2011)
This paper investigates a convex relaxation approach for minimum description length (MDL) based image partitioning or labeling, which proposes an energy functional regularized by the spatial smoothness prior joint with ...
Some New Approaches to Smoothing: Convolution Estimators in Regression Models and Backfitting in Panels of Time Series
(The University of Bergen, 2005-11-18)
An Analysis of the Corner Velocity Interpolation as the Approximation Space in a Mixed Finite Element Method
(The University of Bergen, 2008)
