This thesis aims to contribute to the understanding of how waves interact with soil. It is crucial for various applications in Civil Engineering to analyze the behaviour of soil and to understand the physics behind it. This master thesis contributes to this understanding via studying the impact of the boundary conditions on the model results...

In forensic science, the strength of evidence is calculated mainly by statistical models called likelihood ratio systems. In court cases, the specific-source likelihood ratio system is used by forensic scientists to determine if a trace originates from a known reference, called the trace-reference problem. However, collecting sufficient data to...

Various problems related to Random Walk in Random Environments have been researched intensively over the past 40 years by both the mathematics and physics communities. The setup of these problems is quite simple: one defines a Random Walk of choice and allows it to traverse a Random Environment that influences the Random Walk in a predetermined...

E-mobility, in particular electric vehicles (EVs), play a crucial role in the energy transition. While businesses are increasingly adopting EVs, there is still a lot of opportunity to grow. One aspect of this growth is the way these vehicles are used by companies, especially when it comes to the logistics of EV charging. To encourage companies...

This thesis addresses the challenge of segmenting ultra-high-resolution images. Limitations of current approaches to segment these are that either detailed spatial contextual information is lost or many redundant computations are necessary. To overcome these issues, we propose a novel approach combining the U-Net architecture with domain...

Reconstructing a minimum reticulation network from phylogenetic trees is used in evolutionary studies. In this thesis, we focus on finding temporal networks using cherry-picking sequences for binary trees with all taxa. Finding such a minimum reticulation temporal network is NP-hard.<br/><br/>We introduce an algorithm to find a minimum...

This bachelor's thesis explores the realm of map projections, aiming to establish a systematic approach for evaluating and ranking them based on angular and area distortions. Beginning with a definition of map projections, the study progresses to quantify the distortions that occur when projecting a spherical surface onto a flat one. Using these...

Angiogenesis, i.e. the formation of blood vessels from existing ones, plays a vital role in bone or wound healing. The expansion of vascularization facilitates the healing process through the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the injured site and through the removal of waste products. Clinical observations indicate that impaired angiogenesis...

Extreme Ultraviolet lithography is a vital step in the production of cutting edge computer chips that drive emergent technologies like AI, VR and the internet of things [1]. Careful control of Ultraviolet light beams by EUV machine modules such as the Unicom, Uniformity correction module, enable extremely precise printing of nano-scale...

Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa are two species of bacteria that are involved in numerous conditions, including lung infections and chronic wound infections. The aim of this project was to study the short-term interactions that occur when P. aeruginosa first encounters an established S. aureus colony, which it then seeks to...

It was first shown by D. Potapov and F. Sukochev in 2009 that Lipschitz functions are also operator-Lipschitz on Schatten class operators S<sup>p</sup>, 1&lt;p&lt;∞, which is related to a conjecture by M. Krein. Their proof combined Schur multiplication, a generalisation of component-wise matrix multiplication, with the so-called first order...

This thesis explores how forecasts of Dutch government bond yields can be improved by extending the current Dynamic Nelson-Siegel (DNS) model, used by the Dutch State Treasury Agency (DSTA), with stochastic volatility modeling and a Bayesian approach to parameter estimation and forecasting. The primary goal was to determine if the model...

In this thesis report, we delve into a contest game within game theory, where agents’ risk-taking capacity, rather than effort, becomes the pivotal variable. High-quality performance in the game is associated with a higher probability of leading to superior scores through the use of risky strategies. The application of this con test game to...

The role of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), more commonly known as drones, in society continues to become more significant every day, both in everyday life and in military operations. The extent to which unmanned vehicles are used for both offensive as well as reconnaissance missions is at an all-time high. To expand the number of operational...

We investigate two open problems in discrete geometry regarding how large subsets of sets of points need to be in order for certain structures to emerge. First of all there is the Erdős-Szekeres convex polygon problem, also known as the Happy Ending problem. Interestingly, there is a clear distinction between the number of points required to...

Almost everyone is familiar with games such as poker and checkers, but games can also be found in non-entertaining settings, such as competing companies in a market or conflict resolutions between countries. However, what happens when players want to avoid working together? This thesis provides two game-theoretical models of boycotts based on...

Implied volatility surfaces are integral to option pricing and risk management but often display missing data. Prior research has typically engaged mathematical models or data-driven methods for generating or completing these surfaces. Given the similarity between implied volatility surfaces and images, our paper introduces the Denoising...

Reducing cost and improving computability of reservoir simulation is an important goal in the process of enabling CCS (Carbon Capture \&amp; Storage) as a large-scale technology for mitigating CO2 emissions. In terms of computation time data-driven approaches have potential to outweigh the performance of numerical reservoir simulators, learning...

This paper primarily employs Item Response Theory (IRT) to estimate item characteristics and the proficiency levels of students as reflected in the exam results. The process includes the application of algorithms for item characteristic parameter estimation and the utilization of statistical techniques for item selection from an item pool....

In this thesis, wealth distribution in a closed economic system is examined by studying the simple inclusion process (SIP). The simple inclusion process is a model coming from statistical physics that models the jumping of particles in a graph. In the model particles have attraction among each other and each site also has a characteristic...
