  1. 1. Quality Management in Hospital Departments Empirical Studies of Organisational Models

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Stefan Kunkel; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :Social medicine; Quality Management; Organisational Models; Hospital Departments; Socialmedicin;

    Sammanfattning : The general aim of this thesis was to empirically explore the organisational characteristics of quality systems of hospital departments, to develop and empirically test models for the organisation and implementation of quality systems, and to discuss the clinical implications of the findings.Data were collected from hospital departments through interviews (n=19) and a nation-wide survey (n=386).

  2. 2. Models and meaning on management models and systems of meaning when implementing change

    Detta är en avhandling från Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Författare :Jacob Hallencreutz; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Kvalitetsteknik; Quality Technology and Management;

    Sammanfattning : Change has become a vital business partner for many organizations. Survival of most organizations depends on their ability to implement adequate changes to support the organization. This thesis deals with questions about measurement systems, process based system models and organizational change with a specific focus on implementation challenges. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Latent variable models for longitudinal twin data

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Matematiska institutionen

    Författare :Annica Dominicus; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Latent variable models; twin models; variance components; change point models; non-ignorable nonresponse; likelihood ratio tests; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Mathematical statistics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Matematisk statistik;

    Sammanfattning : Longitudinal twin data provide important information for exploring sources of variation in human traits. In statistical models for twin data, unobserved genetic and environmental factors influencing the trait are represented by latent variables. In this way, trait variation can be decomposed into genetic and environmental components. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Probabilistic Sequence Models with Speech and Language Applications

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Gustav Eje Henter; KTH.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Time series; acoustic modelling; speech synthesis; stochastic processes; causal-state splitting reconstruction; robust causal states; pattern discovery; Markov models; HMMs; nonparametric models; Gaussian processes; Gaussian process dynamical models; nonlinear Kalman filters; information theory; minimum entropy rate simplification; kernel density estimation; time-series bootstrap;

    Sammanfattning : Series data, sequences of measured values, are ubiquitous. Whenever observations are made along a path in space or time, a data sequence results. To comprehend nature and shape it to our will, or to make informed decisions based on what we know, we need methods to make sense of such data. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Geometric Models of Similarity

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Computer Science, Lund University

    Författare :Mikael Johannesson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; symmetry; similarity; separable dimensions; prominence; multidimensional scaling; Minkowski metric; machine learning; integral dimensions; familiarity; geometric models; distance metric; asymmetry; conceptual spaces; Computer science; numerical analysis; systems; control; Datalogi; numerisk analys; system; kontroll; Geometry; algebraic topology; Geometri; algebraisk topologi;

    Sammanfattning : Popular Abstract in Swedish Även om vi kanske inte tänker på det så ofta så är vår förmåga att bedöma likhet av stor vikt, inte minst då det gäller begreppsbildning och generalisering. Denna avhandling handlar om likhet, speciellt geometriska modeller av likhet. LÄS MER
