    Sammanfattning : The thesis focuses on the efficiency of the space heating system. In particular, the efficiency factors measure the efficiency of thermal zone. The efficiency factors measures how the energy is used in a space heating. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Drivers of Climate Change? Political and Economic Explanations of Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Författare :Ole Martin Laegreid; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Greenhouse gas; Climate change; Environmental Kuznets curve; Political institutions;

    Sammanfattning : This PhD dissertation examines if social scientific theories can explain historical trajectories of greenhouse gas emissions. The manuscript includes an introductory chapter and four articles that consider annual emissions in countries across the world, during the time-period 1960-2014. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Progression and Regression. Aspects of Advanced Swedish Students' Competence in English Grammar

    Författare :Monica Karlsson; Engelska; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Engelska språk och litteratur ; English language and literature; error gravity; proper noun; identification frame; genericness; the zero article; ‘idiomatic’ prepositional use; ‘systematic’ prepositional use; ‘basic’ prepositional use; non-contiguous subject-verb construction; contiguous subject-verb construction; subject-verb concord; fossilisation; restructuring of information; automatisation; interlanguage; cognitive second language acquisition theory; U-curve development; regression; progression; developmental pattern; relative frequency; error score; potential error; developmental continuum; advanced learner; Grammar; semantics; semiotics; syntax; Grammatik; semantik; semiotik; Applied linguistics; foreign languages teaching; sociolinguistics; Tillämpad lingvistik; undervisning i främmande språk; sociolingvistik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates advanced Swedish students’ development of three grammatical phenomena: subject-verb concord, prepositions and article use in compositions and translations. In order to describe the students’ development of these categories, actual errors are related to potential errors forming so called ‘error scores’. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The diagnosis and protection of the auditory peripheral system

    Författare :Mao Li Duan; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Cochlea; inner hair cell; outer hair cell; glutamate; post-synaptic receptor; auditory brainstem response; forward masking; noise trauma; hearing loss;

    Sammanfattning : The main focus of this thesis is on the diagnosis and prevention of peripheral hearing loss. An auditory evoked response measure (forward masking) was developed that specifically tests the function of the inner hair cells, independently of the outer hair cells. LÄS MER
