1. ### Automatic Alignment Methods for Visual and Textual Data with Narrative Content ﻿

(2019)
Visual and linguistic tools are the most common medium for exchanging information, self-expression, and storytelling since the ancient times. The advancing technology and humanity enriched these media by introducing novel forms such as digital images, digital videos, online books, blogs, etc. which are tremendously increasing in quantity. Today, we are at a point where we see various manifestations of the same story for which joint analysis ...

2. ### Optimal Cold-Start Control Strategies for Gasoline Engines ﻿

(2019)
In the first part of this thesis, generally valid rules for optimal control strategies during the catalyst heating phase at a high value of ignition retardation are identified experimentally. To this end, the effects of variations in control strategies are analyzed. Specifically, variations are analyzed in the center of combustion $\theta_{\mathrm{50}}$, in the air-to-fuel ratio $\lambda$ and in maldistributions in both quantities among ...

4. ### Rational Surface Nanoengineering for Phase Change and Separation Applications: From Desublimation Control to Sunlight-driven Antifogging ﻿

(2019)
As the title suggests, my thesis investigates the use of rationally nanoengineered surfaces to control phase changes and phase separation. More precisely I look at the areas of desublimation frosting, sublimation defrosting, fogging, and oil-water separation. Each of these applications lie within the bounds of technologies that will improve our ability to more efficiently use energy and water, the two most important commodities on earth. ...

9. ### Fully Wearable Actuated Hand Exoskeleton for Assistance in Daily Life and Therapy ﻿

(2019)
Human hands combine unique dexterity and somatosensory abilities which are exceptional in living organisms and not reached in technology. How important hands are for our daily living becomes evident when we temporarily or permanently lose the ability to use them and simple tasks like eating or grooming suddenly require assistance from a third person. Worldwide, far more than 50 million individuals suffer from upper limb impairment following ...

10. ### Play Among Books ﻿

(2019)
Architecture and Information, abundance and connectivity, unsettling hierarchies. Clouds, streams, lists, indexes, pixels. What are they about and how do they shape the way we think about the world? How is coding changing the way in which we think about architecture? One way to approach this vast cloud is by thinking of coding as a literacy. Play Among Books wants to offer one fantastic scenario of what such a literacy might be about. ...

13. ### Quasi-Monte Carlo Integration in Uncertainty Quantification for PDEs with log-Gaussian Random Field Inputs ﻿

(2019)
Partial diﬀerential equations (PDEs) with incomplete knowledge on diﬀerential operators arise in science and engineering. This lack of knowledge results in uncertainty in the respective solutions. Mathematically, unknown coeﬃcient functions of diﬀerential operators are modeled by random ﬁelds. These random ﬁelds describe physical quantities that constitute the PDE under consideration. In this thesis, elliptic PDEs with random coeﬃcient ...

16. ### Continuous Reaction and Separation of IgG ﻿

(2019)
Biopharmaceuticals are the fastest growing eld in the pharmaceutical sector. Among them, sca olds derived from the classical biopharmaceuticals, such as antibody drug conjugates, antibody fragments and PEGylated proteins, gain increasing attention. These are often derived from an already available product with the aim to give it new functionalities. This reaction is done in a step subsequent to the protein expression in cells. While ...
