  1. Intertwined degrees of freedom in the series Nd(1-x)Ce(x)CoIn(5) 

    Mazzone, Daniel Gabriel (2017)
    Strongly correlated electron systems are quantum materials that reveal a deep intertwining between different electronic charge, orbital, spin and lattice degrees of freedom. The interaction among them can stabilize ground states that feature novel collective phenomena and that potentially contribute to the development of future technical applications, if they are understood on a microscopic level. Particular complex quantum phenomena ...

  3. Integer Polynomial Optimization in Fixed Dimension 

    Zemmer, Kevin (2017)
    The problem of optimizing multivariate scalar polynomial functions over mixed-integer points in polyhedra is a generalization of the well known Linear Programming (LP) problem. While LP problems have been shown to be polynomially solvable, their extension to mixed-integer points, known as Mixed-Integer Linear Programming (MILP), is NP-hard. However, if the number of integer variables is fixed, MILP is polynomially solvable. We develop ...

  5. Political Multi-task Problems, Incentive Pay and Citizen Participation 

    Ebrahimi, Afsoon (2017)
    We analyze the extent and effectiveness of electoral accountability and the problems related to keeping the politicians accountable. We illustrate the importance of developing incentive tools to discipline the incumbents. We propose "incentive pay" as an effective tool and we analyze its potentials and limitations. To assess the appropriate incentive schemes, we first explore the sources of (re)election incentives for politicians. To ...

  6. More acceptance for power lines in Switzerland 

    Jullier, Joshu (2016)
    Grid expansion is necessary to reach the European and Swiss renewable energy and emission reduction targets, but project delays are a big problem. One major reason for the delays is the lack of acceptance for power line projects. We ask therefore the following overarching research question in the context of Switzerland: What factors influence the acceptance of affected stakeholders? Among these factors, the question about the disclosure ...

  8. Managing Trade-Offs in Coffee Agroforests 

    Nesper, Maike (2017)
    Agroforestry systems provide multiple ecosystem services and are refuges for diverse flora and fauna. Coffee is one of the main tropical agroforestry crops and of global economic importance. Over recent decades, coffee agroforestry systems have been increasingly intensified by the replacement of native shade tree diversity with one or few, often non-native, tree species. Such reduction in tree diversity might have implications for ecosystem ...

  11. Identifying topological states in matter 

    Gresch, Dominik (2015)
    The rise of topological insulators, semimetals and superconductors established the topology of the electronic band structure as a fundamental material property. Topological materials can realize exotic novel quantum states such as an integer quantum Hall state in the absence of an external magnetic field, quasiparticle states needed for topological quantum computing, and many more. The topological nature of these states makes them insensitive ...
