  1. 1. Essays on Consumption : - Aggregation, Asymmetry and Asset Distributions

    Författare :Mårten Bjellerup; Jan Ekberg; Katarina Juselius; Växjö universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Aggregate consumption; Aggregation; Asymmetry; Wealth distribution; Income distribution; Concavity; Permanent Income Hypothesis; Buffer stock saving; Precautionary saving; consumption; saving; Euler equation; error correction; skew-t distribution; gamma distribution; dispersion; non-linear model; durable goods; nondurable goods; household level data; consumption function; marginal propensity to consume; current resources; consumption expenditure; life-cycle model; univariate test; multivariate test; Sweden; Economics; Nationalekonomi; Economics; Nationalekonomi;

    Sammanfattning : The dissertation consists of four self-contained essays on consumption. Essays 1 and 2 consider different measures of aggregate consumption, and Essays 3 and 4 consider how the distributions of income and wealth affect consumption from a macro and micro perspective, respectively.

  2. 2. Stochastic Event-Based Control and Estimation

    Författare :Toivo Henningsson; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; event-based control; event-based estimation; sporadic control; stochastic control; stochastic hybrid systems; sum-of-squares methods; control over networks; quantized measurements;

    Sammanfattning : Digital controllers are traditionally implemented using periodic sampling, computation, and actuation events. As more control systems are implemented to share limited network and CPU bandwidth with other tasks, it is becoming increasingly attractive to use some form of event-based control instead, where precious events are used only when needed.

  3. 3. The Maximum Principle for Cauchy-Riemann Functions and Hypocomplexity

    Författare :Abtin Daghighi; Stefan Borell; Christer Kiselman; Egmont Porten; Juergen Leiterer; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Hypocomplexity; hypoanalytic structure; CR functions; maximum principle; weak pseudoconcavity;

    Sammanfattning : This licentiate thesis contains results on the maximum principle forCauchy–Riemann functions (CR functions) on weakly 1-concave CRmanifolds and hypocomplexity of locally integrable structures. Themaximum principle does not hold true in general for smooth CR functions,and basic counterexamples can be constructed in the presenceof strictly pseudoconvex points. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Testing for Rationality, Separability and Efficiency

    Författare :Per Hjertstrand; Nationalekonomiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Revealed preference; Regional convergence; Rationality; Nonparametric; NONPAR test; LP test; GARP; Efficiency; Data Envelopment Analysis DEA ; Afriat’s Theorem; Bootstrap; Swofford and Whitney test; Weak separability;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aims to propose, evaluate and apply test procedures for rationality, weak separability and efficiency. In particular, it focuses on nonparametric revealed preference procedures. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Positive vector bundles in complex and convex geometry

    Författare :Hossein Raufi; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :holomorphic vector bundles; dbar-equation; L^2-estimates; singular hermitian metrics; Griffiths positivity; Nakano positivity; vanishing theorems; Ohsawa-Takegoshi extension theorem; convex geometry; Prekopa theorem; Nakano positivity;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns various aspects of the geometry of holomorphic vector bundles and their analytical theory which all, vaguely speaking, are related to the notion of positive curvature in general, and L^2-methods for the dbar-equation in particular. The thesis contains four papers. LÄS MER
