    Sammanfattning : In linkage analysis or, in a wider sense, gene mapping one searches for disease loci along a genome. This is done by observing so called marker genotypes (alleles) and phenotypes (affecteds/unaffecteds) of a pedigree set, i.e. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Numerical analysis for random processes and fields and related design problems

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik, Umeå universitet

    Författare :Konrad Abramowicz; Oleg Seleznjev; Krzysztof Podgórski; [2011]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stochastic processes; random fields; approximation; numerical integration; Hermite splines; piecewise linear interpolator; local stationarity; point singularity; stratified Monte Carlo quadrature; Asian option; Monte Carlo pricing method; Lévy market models; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Mathematical statistics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics; matematisk statistik;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, we study numerical analysis for random processes and fields. We investigate the behavior of the approximation accuracy for specific linear methods based on a finite number of observations. Furthermore, we propose techniques for optimizing performance of the methods for particular classes of random functions. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Analytical Approximation of Contingent Claims

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund : Department of Economics, Lund Universtiy

    Författare :Karl Larsson; Claus Munk; [2009]

    Sammanfattning : This PhD thesis consists of three separate papers. The common theme is methods to calculate analytical approximations for prices of different contingent claims under various model assumptions. The first two papers deals with approximations of standard European options in stochastic volatility models. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Topics in Hardness of Approximation and Social Choice Theory

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Författare :Marcus Isaksson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hardness of approximation; social choice theory; Gibbard-Satterthwaite; max-q-cut; Condorcet voting; linear threshold functions.; Condorcet voting; linear threshold functions.; max-q-cut; Gibbard-Satterthwaite; social choice theory;

    Sammanfattning : Tools from Fourier analysis of Boolean functions have commonly been used to prove results both in hardness of approximation in computer science and in the study of voting schemes in social choice theory. In this thesis we consider various topics in both these contexts. LÄS MER
