  1. LOOKING AT CITIES THROUGH NOVEL LENSES 

    Casanelles Abella, Joan (2022)
    Land-use change and intensification are main drivers of global biodiversity decline. Urban areas are rapidly expanding worldwide, representing a major threat for biodiversity. Nonetheless, cities are increasingly recognised as ecosystems on their own, harbouring often a considerably high biodiversity, being a major force of eco-evolutionary change, and in turn, providing a wide array of ecosystem functions and contributions to people. ...

  2. Modelling of azimuthal thermoacoustic and aeroacoustic instabilities in axisymmetric geometries 

    Faure-Beaulieu, Abel (2022)
    To face the current situation of climate change caused by human activities, many states set the goal to reach zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050 in order to contain the increase of the mean earth temperature in an acceptable range. To reach such an ambitious goal, a revolution is necessary in the domains of energy production and transportation. Renewable energies are destined to play a major role in this transition, but they cannot ...

  3. Effect of the Particle Size Distribution and Morphology on Powder Processability in Laser Powder Bed Fusion 

    Haferkamp, Lukas (2022)
    The raw material of the Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) process is the powder. It strongly influences the part quality. Despite its significance, there is a lack of quantified and broadly accepted powder requirements. Therefore, the influence of two powder properties, particle size distribution (PSD) and morphology, were investigated and quantified, and recommendations for those two powder properties were derived in this thesis. This was ...

  4. Towards a Digital Twin of Seychelles' Road Transport System 

    Schaniel, Joel (2022)
    Seychelles faces a fast growth in car ownership. Infrastructure improvements cannot keep pace with the grown mobility demand, resulting in an increasing congestion problem during peak hours. This thesis aims to build a reliable microscopic traffic model for Seychelles’ main island Mahé. It focuses on motorized private transport. I used openly available map data to build a model in the open-source traffic simulation software SUMO. The ...

  6. Scaling-up Soil Quality Assessments: Efficient Infrared-spectroscopic Workflows across Space and Time 

    Baumann, Philipp (2021)
    Modern soil science relies upon the measurement of quantitative and qualitative soil attributes, and is, whenever possible, based on data that we typically measure in the laboratory and also in the field. Soil is a critical component of farming systems and is a limited resource, but also tends to be more and more degraded and lost due to human activities. Thus, sustainable soil management practices are needed more than ever to sustain and ...

  7. Data-Driven Face Analysis for Performance Retargeting 

    Zoss, Gaspard (2021)
    The democratization of digital humans in entertainment was made possible by the recent advances in performance capture, rendering and animation techniques. The human face, which is key to realism, is very complex to animate by hand and facial performance capture is nowadays often used to acquire a starting point for the animation. Most of the time however, captured actors are not re-rendered directly on screen, but their performance is ...

  9. Unknown pleasures: phase retrieval for time-frequency and time-scale structured data 

    Wellershoff, Matthias (2022)
    Phase retrieval is an umbrella term given to various inverse problems in which one aims to recover signals from magnitude-only measurements. It enjoys a rich history: being linked to multiple Nobel prizes in diverse fields awarded over the past 100 years. It moreover is a beautiful mathematical problem in the sense that it is easy to pose while being hard to solve. In this thesis, we mainly consider phase retrieval problems with time-frequency ...

  11. Automatic Generation of Winter Storm Warnings 

    Blass, Robert (2022)
    It is a task of MeteoSwiss to warn the public and authorities of upcoming extreme weather. The current warning system is based on fixed geographical warning regions which are manually classified into levels of danger by weather forecasters. The aim of this master’s thesis is to automatize the generation of warnings of winter storms. An algorithm is designed and implemented which automatically shapes and classifies event-based warning ...

  12. Development of Photoactivatable Fluorophores to Explore Physicochemical Environments in Live Cells and Access Long-Term Single-Molecule Imaging 

    Eördögh, Ádám (2021)
    Fluorescence microscopy is an invaluable tool for biological research, used routinely due to its high sensitivity, low invasiveness, and the rich phenotypic information it provides. The variety of available fluorescent probes allows for acquiring diverse information about the sample, from analyte concentrations, through properties of the microenvironment, to biological activity. An important constraint of fluorescence microscopy is its ...

  13. ON THE INFORMATION-THEORETIC ASPECTS OF BLACK HOLES 

    Wang, Jinzhao (2022)
    In this thesis, I study the information-theoretic aspects of black holes using ideas and tools from quantum information theory, such as the one-shot entropies and quantum de Finetti theorem, and from free probability theory, such as the free cumulants and the free convolutions. My results provide a conceptually clearer and analytically more accurate account of the information encoded in the Hawking radiation of black holes.
