Image Inpainting using Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations
(The University of Bergen, 2005-05-23)
Stochastic chain-ladder models in nonlife insurance
(The University of Bergen, 2008)
This thesis examines the stochastic models which reproduce chain-ladder estimates used in reserve estimation for nonlife insurance. The chain-ladder method provides no information regarding the variability of the outcome, ...
Statistical Approach to Relatedness Analysis in Large Collections of Genetic Profiles. An Application to a DNA-Registry of Fin Whales
(The University of Bergen, 2012-11-20)
The present study utilized data from an Icelandic DNA-registry of fin whales by searching for pairs of relatives with a statistical approach. Three types of relatedness were of interest, half-siblings, parent-offspring and ...
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 ...
