Sammanfattning : Medical imaging continues to permeate the practice of medicine, but automated yet accurate segmentation and labeling of anatomical structures continues to be a major obstacle to computerized medical image analysis (MIA). Deformable models, with its profound roots in estimation theory, optimization, and physics-based dynamical systems, represent a powerful approach to the general problem of medical image segmentation.

2. Part Quality Prediction and Variation Reduction in Multistage Machining Processes Based on Skin Model Shapes
Sammanfattning : All manufacturing processes inevitably induce variations into manufactured parts that may result in nonconformance. Nonconforming parts incur costs due to the additional process required for rework or scrap loss. Hence, methodical efforts to reduce these variations are necessary for competitive manufacturing.

Sammanfattning : Cemented carbide is a composite material used in applications like cutting tools and rock drilling inserts. The material commonly consists of WC grains embedded in a Co-rich binder phase and the material properties strongly depend on the WC grain size. LÄS MER
4. Statistical methods for the detection, analyses and integration of biomarkers in the human genome and transcriptome
Sammanfattning : Most human diseases have been shown to have a genetic basis that is linked to regulation of gene expression at the transcriptional or post-transcriptional level. In the central dogma of biology, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is transcribed to messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA), and then translated into proteins; dysfunction in any of these processes may contribute to the development of disease.

5. International organizations as peacemakers : The evolution and effectiveness of intergovernmental instruments to end civil war
Sammanfattning : Across four self-contained essays, this dissertation seeks to identify which features make international organizations (IOs) effective peacemakers in modern civil wars. The first essay introduces an original dataset on the institutional design of 21 peace-brokering IOs between 1945 and 2010. LÄS MER
