  1. 1. Values, Norms & Ideology in Mainstream Economics

    Författare :Gert Helgesson; Karsten Klint Jensen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Philosophy; economics; efficiency; equilibrium; extrascientific; ideology; ideologically relevant; implicit; intrascientific; model; neoclassical; norm; preference; stability; valuation; value-free; Filosofi; Philosophy subjects; Filosofiämnen; Practical Philosophy; praktisk filosofi;

    Sammanfattning : Is economics a value-free science? Defenders of the view that it is admit that there have been failures to keep valuations and norms out but claim that economics is nevertheless essentially value-free. Critics, on the other hand, claim that economics is not and cannot be value-free. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Point defect interactions and structural stability of compounds

    Författare :Vitaly Baykov; Börje Johansson; Peter Mohn; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; first principles; ab initio; density functional theory; point defects interactions; diluted magnetic semiconductors; structural stability; zirconium alloys; Other materials science; Övrig teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Theoretical studies of point defect interactions and structural stability of compounds have been performed using density functional theory. The defect-related properties, such as activation energy of diffusion, electronic and magnetic structure of selected materials have been studied. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Making Pairs

    Författare :Jens Gudmundsson; Nationalekonomiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; equilibrium; existence; Pairing; matching; stability; algorithms;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis makes a contribution to matching theory. It consists of five self-contained papers. It is a study predominately on the existence of stable outcomes. These are desirable both from a practical and a theoretical standpoint. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Prosocial Behavior, Social Interaction and Development: Experimental Evidence from Vietnam

    Författare :Nam Pham Khanh; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Voluntary contribution; local public goods; social influence; default contribution; conditional cooperation; disclosure; social preferences; preferences for relative position; preference stability; moral licensing; moral cleansing; adaptation to climate change; social capital; field experiment; natural experiment; lab experiment; Vietnam.;

    Sammanfattning : Paper 1. Funding a New Bridge in Rural Vietnam: A Field Experiment on Conditional Cooperation and Default Contributions The ability to provide public goods is essential for economic and social development, yet there is very limited empirical evidence regarding contributions to a real local public good in developing countries.

  5. 5. Growth, Characterization, and Thermal Stability of CeO2 Thin Films

    Författare :Sissel N. Jacobsen; David K. Fork; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Rare earth oxides are potentially useful materials in various optical electronic, and catalytic devices. The characteristics of such devices are strongly dependent on the interface structure of heterojunctions, hence engineering of the performance can be achieved through tailoring of the micro- and/ or surface structure.
