  1. 1. Phase transitions in high-temperature superconductors

    Författare :Jack Lidmar; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Superconductivity; Vortices; Phase transitions; Strongly correlated fermions; High-temperature superconductivity; Monte Carlo simulations.; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Thermal fluctuations and disorder strongly influence the behaviour of hightemperature superconductors. In particular the vortices play a key role in determining their properties. In this thesis the main focus lies on phase transitions, both in ultra-thin films and in three-dimensional systems, which are driven by vortex fluctuations. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Workload transitions and stress : changes over time

    Författare :Erik Prytz; Mark Scerbo; USA VA Norfolk Old Dominion University Department of Psychology; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; human factors; workload transition; stress; workload;

    Sammanfattning : Workload transitions are situations where operators are suddenly confronted with levels of workload substantially different from previously established levels. Workload transitions may affect the operators' state of stress and coping behaviors but previous research has not conclusively demonstrated the nature of those. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Guiding Sustainability Transitions: Backcasting, Experimentation and Social learning

    Författare :Johan Larsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; sustainability transitions; transdisciplinarity; reflexive governance; experimentation; backcasting; Education for Sustainable Development ESD ; social learning;

    Sammanfattning : Sustainability challenges including climate change, social injustice, resource depletion and biodiversity loss are becoming increasingly apparent. These challenges can be understood as partly resulting from unsustainable socio-technical systems in society, assumed to require transitions to become sustainable in time. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : In this dissertation, the lives of five young people living in Norrköping follows for five years (1998 – 2002) through fieldwork involving observations and recurring interviews.The objective of the study is to describe and analyse the development into adulthood and the creation of a (cultural) identity among a group of young people in a town, which used to be heavily working class.
