  1. 1. Life after death : The diffusion of Swedish life insurance - Dynamics of financial and social modernization 1830-1950

    Författare :Liselotte Eriksson; Magnus Lindmark; Robin Pearson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; economic history; life insurance; married women s property rights; industrial life insurance; funeral cost; sales promotion; policyholder; Sweden; culture; financial system; women; ekonomisk historia; Economic History;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis is to understand the diffusion process of Swedish life insurance during the period c. 1830-1950, with the specific aim to understand financial modernization and social mobilization as reflected in the diffusion of life insurance to less well-to-do classes and women.

  2. 2. Formalizing life : Towards an improved understanding of the sequence-structure relationship in alpha-helical transmembrane proteins

    Författare :Håkan Viklund; Arne Elofsson; Kimmen Sjölander; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bioinformatics; protein; topology; hidden Markov model; prediction; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Genes coding for alpha-helical transmembrane proteins constitute roughly 25% of the total number of genes in a typical organism. As these proteins are vital parts of many biological processes, an improved understanding of them is important for achieving a better understanding of the mechanisms that constitute life. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Speciation and Metabolic rate : Insights from an avian hybrid zone

    Författare :S. Eryn McFarlane; Anna Qvarnström; Jenny Boughman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; resting metabolic rate; life history; hybridization; speciation; reproductive isolation; Ficedula flycatcher; Biologi med inriktning mot zooekologi; Biology with specialization in Animal Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : The role of divergent climate adaptation in speciation has received surprisingly little scientific attention. My dissertation research focused on how resting metabolic rate (RMR) relates to the build up of prezygotic and postzygotic isolation in a natural Ficedula flycatcher hybrid zone. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Life performance assessment methodologies for combined solar energy technologies : a case study on system parts in Nordic climates

    Författare :Bojan Stojanovic; Christer Sjöström; Björn Karlsson; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Life performance; assessment; combined solar energy technologies; degradation; component and system performance; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; life performance;

    Sammanfattning : The main questions concerning energy technologies today are their economical and environmental impacts. These entities are (at the present) assessed on the basis that operations proceed as newly installed/designed systems, during an assumed working life period. LÄS MER

  5. 5. System Expansion and Allocation in Life Cycle Assessment With Implications for Wastepaper Management

    Författare :Tomas Ekvall; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; allocation; system expansion; LCI methodology; waste incineration; waste management; system boundaries; life cycle inventory analysis; paper recycling; environmental life cycle assessment; modelling;

    Sammanfattning : The choice of system boundaries and allocation methods can have decisive effects on the results and conclusions of a life cycle assessment (LCA). System expansion makes it possible to model the indirect effects of a decision; however, this modelling is often based on inaccurate assumptions. LÄS MER
