Floods are a big problem for Jakarta; the capital of Indonesia is subsiding below mean sea level and floods will become more frequent. Flood protection and measures against subsidence are, therefore, of high importance to Jakarta’s government. One of the options they are studying is a great sea wall to regulate the water levels in Jakarta Bay....

In this thesis, we look into two different researches with the same basis; information centric networking. Enhanced resilience is one of the often mentioned advantages of this paradigm shift in internet networks. However, this resilience is not quantified in literature so far. In this thesis the information resilience of hierarchical ICN...

In this thesis we study the optimal role assignment in jury voting. Jurors have to decide between two states of nature. Jurors cannot directly observe the state of nature, but only a noisy signal, that is correlated with the true state of nature. Some jurors are better than the other, and higher ability jurors receive signals that more likely...

The quality of magnetic resonance images produced by conventional MRI scanners is guaranteed by the strength and homogeneity of the magnetic field. However, the superconducting magnets required to produce such a field make MRI scanners large and expensive and hence inaccessible to a large number of people in developing countries. Our partners...

We study a (stochastic) parabolic Cauchy problem. We first prove that we have a non-tangential control of the solution of the deterministic parabolic Cauchy problem by the tent space norm of the gradient of the solution. This is done by showing boundedness results for several maximal regularity operators and by developing energy solutions in L^2...

In this thesis we discuss a framework for life-cycle construction. For the construction of life-cycles we use mean-variance optimization. Mean-variance optimization is a portfolio selection method used to find a combination of asset classes that has an optimal risk-return trade-off. We choose the replacement ratio, the pension income as fraction...

The right training and equipment become increasingly more important in professional wheelchair sports such as wheelchair basketball. Individual performance characteristics need to be measured to be able to optimise for example wheelchair settings. Recently, a method using shimmer sensors has been developed and validated to measure speed,...

For telecommunication businesses it is important to retain as many customers as possible. For this purpose it could be useful to predict which customers have a high potential to stop their subscription. When a customer leaves the company by stopping the subscription, it is called a customer churn. In this thesis customer churn was predicted for...

: In this thesis Max-Plus Algebra is discussed. This is an algebraic structure which is useful for modelling scheduling problems. Instead of normal addition and multiplication respectively the operations maximum and addition are used. Together with max-plus algebra another modelling method is described: Heaps of Pieces. This looks like Tetris...

In optimization, many variants of the Vehicle Routing Problem exists with all sorts of restrictions and characteristics. Heuristics that find near-optimal solutions are known and tested on in the literature, such as heuristics that escape local minima with the use of large neighborhoods. An example is Adaptive Large Neighborhood Search, which...

In this report, we derive some tools that can be used to construct semi-analytical solution for the electromagnetic field of a dipole in an arbitrary multilayer system. The proposed methods consist of a recursive determination of electric fields -- using the mathematical principle behind a Fabry-Perot interferometer -- and two different...

In this thesis, we take a look at the Asymmetrical Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problem (ACVRP). We will take a look at different possible formulations for the problem and choose one based on the ease of implementation, the computation speed of solving it, and the available relaxations. The problem, and its relaxations, will be modeled and solved...

A high percentage of hospital admissions is due to surgical interventions. The operating theatre, which holds the operating rooms (ORs), is therefore one of the key resources in hospitals. Managing the operating theatre and finding an optimal OR schedule is complex due to the many factors that influence it. Scheduling a surgery in an OR...

Het is mogelijk om een bal in vijf stukken te verdelen, welke na draaien en verplaatsen weer bij elkaar te zetten zijn in twee ballen identiek aan de eerste. Dit resultaat is in 1924 door Stefan Banach en Alfred Tarski bewezen, en laat zien dat er geen goede volume-afbeelding te defini¨eren is op alle deelverzamelingen van R3. Dit onverwachte...

The purpose of this thesis was to find a (near-)optimal long-haul race strategy for the TU Delft Solar Boat, taking into account practical race conditions and very limited computing time. A race strategy details at what speeds the boat should sail throughout the race, and how long (if at all) it should stop to charge. Various methods have been...

De Scheduled Relaxation Jacobi (SRJ) methode is een toepassing van de Jacobi methode met relaxatiegewichten. De relaxatiegewichten worden gebruikt in een iteratie cyclus. Daarnaast zijn de relaxatiegewichten zodanig gekozen, dat het optimaal werkt voor de Laplace vergelijking. Met de SRJ methode is het gelukt om de Jacobi methode 100x sneller te...

The method Erasmus-iCycle is able to generate a treatment plan for cancer patients, based on the patient's anatomy and a predefined wish list. This wish list contains goals for different organs near the tumour, listed by priority. However, it is not certain that the generated iCycle plan is the best fit for an individual patient, since every...

In this presentation a model-approach for turn detection and lane change detection will be explained. The idea of these algorithms is to detect these events using only basic in-car sensors. I will show how these algorithms can be improved and how probabilistic output is added. By adding the probabilistic output, the algorithms can be made more...

In this thesis, the problem of estimating trust in distributed systems is considered. Distributed systems can be virtual or real-world systems in which multiple agents interact. One of the biggest problems in distributed systems is that they only function well if everyone contributes some resources. If agents do not participate, or try to...
