Some demographic methods applied to urban and rural populations of Pakistan
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-01)
Summary of Findings: In this thesis, first of all I have tried to describe what is demography and different ways to collect demographic data. Then, I have applied some of the demographic techniques to the population of ...
Hierarchical Bayesian Survival Analysis of Age-Specific Data From Birds' Nests
(The University of Bergen, 2010-11-19)
In this thesis, I first present the grassland birds data from Wells(2007) which is used by several different methods of estimating the nest survival rates. The hierarchical Bayesian method from Cao(2009) then is introduced ...
On the use of vertically averaged models to simulate CO2 migration in a layered saline aquifer
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
Geologic and flow characteristics such as permeability and porosity, capillary pressure, geologic structure, and thickness all influence and affect CO2 plume distribution to varying degrees. These parameters do not necessarily ...
Reconstructing Open Surfaces via Graph-Cuts
(The authors, 2011)
A novel graph-cuts-basedmethod is proposed for reconstructing open surfaces from unordered point sets. Through a boolean operation on the crust around the data set, the open surface problem is translated to a watertight ...
On flow properties of surface waves described by model equations of Boussinesq type
(The University of Bergen, 2012-03-23)
Investigations of the Modified Navier-Stokes Equations in One Dimension
(The University of Bergen, 2014-06-02)
In this thesis we have investigated the Brenner-Navier-Stoke equations in one spatial dimension. These are a modified version of the Navier-Stokes equations, where the modification relates to a mass diffusion term. This ...
Markovmodulerte Poisson-prosessar som modellar for dykketidsdata
(The University of Bergen, 2010-03-23)
Alle pattedyr som lever i sjøen må opp til overlata for å puste, og det er når dyra bryt overflata at det er mogeleg for oss å observere dei. Det er ikkje alltid lett å oppdage dyra, og sannsynligheten for å oppdage eit ...
Modeling Dissolution within Vertically Averaged Formulations
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-10)
In this thesis we develop a mathematical model describing the migration and trapping of CO2 when injecting it in a deep saline aquifer. Both the migration and trapping processes are inherently complex, spanning multiple ...
Sequential Monte Carlo Methods for Bayesian Filtering
(The University of Bergen, 2008)
