  1. 1. Cryptographic Tools for Privacy Preservation and Verifiable Randomness

    Författare :Carlo Brunetta; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Confidentiality; Verifiable Randomness; Differential Privacy; GDPR; Privacy; Cryptography;

    Sammanfattning : Our society revolves around communication. The Internet is the biggest, cheapest and fastest digital communication channel used nowadays. Due to the continuous increase of daily communication among people worldwide, more and more data might be stolen, misused or tampered. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Exploring Probabilistic Reasoning : A Study of How Students Contextualise Compound Chance Encounters in Explorative Settings

    Författare :Per Nilsson; Inger Wistedt; Lennart Hellström; Dave Pratt; Växjö universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Probabilistic reasoning; randomness; compound chance encounters; contextualisation; differentiation; elaborative variation.; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; Matematikdidaktik; Mathematical Education; Mathematical Didactics;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aims at exploring how probabilistic reasoning arises in explorative learning situations that are random in nature. The focus is especially on what learners with scant experience of formal theories of probability do and can do when dealing with compound random situations in which they are offered opportunities to integrate different probabilistic lines of reasoning.

  3. 3. Groundwater-Seawater Interactions : Seawater Intrusion, Submarine Groundwater Discharge and Temporal Variability and Randomness Effects

    Författare :Carmen Prieto; Georgia Destouni; Vassilios Kaleris; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydraulic engineering; Seawater intrusion; submarine groundwater discharge; coastal groundwater management; coastal zone management; temporal variability; temporal randomness; Vattenteknik; Water engineering; Vattenteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Fresh groundwater quality and availability in coastal areas is affected by seawater intrusion into coastal aquifers, and coastal water quality and ecosystem status may be significantly affected by groundwater pollutants that are transported into coastal waters by submarine groundwater dis-charge (SGD). This thesis uses an overall regional perspective for investigating: i) seawater intru-sion and its possible control in sustainable coastal groundwater management; ii) SGD and its relevant quantification as one interacting part among the diverse main regional pathways of freshwater and tracer/pollutant inputs from land to sea; and iii) the integrated system functioning of both i) and ii) as main components of the same coastal groundwater system.

  4. 4. With or without context : Automatic text categorization using semantic kernels

    Författare :Johan Eklund; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; automatic text categorization; subject classification; machine learning; computational linguistics; support vector machines; semantic kernels; term weighting; divergence from randomness; Library and Information Science; Biblioteks- och informationsvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis text categorization is investigated in four dimensions of analysis: theoretically as well as empirically, and as a manual as well as a machine-based process. In the first four chapters we look at the theoretical foundation of subject classification of text documents, with a certain focus on classification as a procedure for organizing documents in libraries.

  5. 5. Modelling Freshwater-Seawater Interactions in Coastal Aquifers : Long-term Trends and Temporal Variability Effects

    Författare :Carmen Prieto; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :seawater intrusion; seasonal variability; artificial recharge; spatial and temporal randomness;

    Sammanfattning : Over-exploitation of coastal aquifers causes seawaterintrusion and eventually contamination of groundwater wells inmany parts of the world. Desalination of brackish water andartificial recharge of treated wastewater may then be asustainable strategy for managing groundwater supply inwater-stressed regions. LÄS MER
