  1. Weak convergence rates for numerical approximations of parabolic stochastic partial differential equations with non-additive noise 

    Kurniawan, Ryan (2018)
    Strong convergence rates for numerical approximations of stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) with smooth and regular nonlinearities are well understood in the literature. Weak convergence rates for numerical approximations of such SPDEs have been investigated since about 14 years ago and were far away from being understood. In particular, it remained an open problem to establish essentially sharp weak convergence rates for ...

  5. Data Mining Meets Life Cycle Assessment: Towards Understanding and Quantifying Environmental Impacts of Individual Households 

    Frömelt, Andreas (2018)
    To reduce adverse impacts on nature, thus enabling future generations to lead a decent life, deep changes in present human behavior are urgently needed. Policymakers can assume a key role and aim at creating an environment that enables producers and consumers to move towards more sustainable behavioral patterns. However, in order to successfully implement policy interventions and to efficiently invest time and money in the most promising ...

  7. Colourings of Graphs and Words 

    Kamčev, Nina (2018)
    Extremal graph theory is concerned with the extreme values of a graph parameter over various classes of graphs. Randomised constructions have played a major role in extremal combinatorics. This phenomenon acted as a catalyst for the development of probabilistic combinatorics and the theory of random graphs as independent research areas. In the present thesis, we consider three graph parameters – anagram-chromatic number, rainbow connectivity ...

  8. Challenges in the Design of Biomimetic Orthopaedic Implants Next Generation Knee Arthroplasty 

    Zumbrunn, Thomas (2018)
    Designing orthopaedic implants to reconstruct native anatomy and function continues to be a major challenge in the development of new products. This thesis provides insights and suggestions for designing next generation knee arthroplasty with a focus on native joint kinematics. Like in many other specialties, biomimetics is the ultimate objective in joint reconstruction. Knee arthroplasty is the most successful treatment option for severe ...

  10. Structure and Dynamics of Collaborative Knowledge Networks 

    Nanumyan, Vahan (2018)
    A major means to encode and share scientific knowledge are publications, which cite each other and which are authored by one or more scientists. Citation networks of publications are commonly used to proxy the structure of scientific knowledge. Coauthorship networks are used to represent the social network between collaborating scientists. Yet, these two networks are rarely considered together even though they are interconnected. The ...

  11. Retaining Data Ownership in the Internet of Things 

    Shafagh, Hossein (2018)
    As Internet of Things (IoT) systems further emerge, we face unprecedented security and privacy challenges, especially with regards to the collected data. This data typically consists of sensor readings, tagged with metadata. For scalability, ubiquitous access, and sharing possibilities, the data is most often stored in the cloud. Securing date while in transit and in particular when being stored in the cloud is of utmost importance, as ...

  12. Infinite dimensional GIT and moment maps in differential geometry 

    Trautwein, Samuel (2018)
    The starting point of this thesis is the following observation of Atiyah and Bott: The curvature of a connection on a bundle over a surface can be understood as a moment map for the action of the gauge group. Moreover, the moduli space of flat connections, or more generally of Yang--Mills connections, is closely related to the moduli space of holomorphic bundles obtained from geometric invariant theory. We discuss the various implications ...

  14. Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) Measurements in Laboratory and Ambient Studies 

    Zhou, Jun (2018)
    Breathing pristine clean air, a fundamental human right ever since the world was created, is threatened now and then on the road of human society development. To create the environment that supports our life in a sustainable way, we must solve the air pollution problem and at the same time continue our technologically based civilization. Although air pollution has attracted attention for centuries, the air-cleaning task is still arduous ...
