In this thesis we study the use of Piecewise Deterministic Markov Processes (PDMPs), such as the Zig-Zag process and the Bouncy Particle Sampler, in rare event probability estimation. We introduce both processes and illustrate how the methods work. To estimate the rare event probabilities we use the splitting method. We also analyze this method...

Tidal inlet systems are often highly valuable and sometimes even unique ecosystems. However, field measurements show that tidal inlet systems are sensitive to changing exogenous conditions, such as rising sea levels. This thesis aims to investigate to what extent the adjacent sea influences the stability and equilibrium state of the tidal inlet....

Sinds 2015/2016 krijgen de leerlingen op de havo met wiskunde A op hun eindexamen een blad met enkele vuistregels. In deze thesis heb ik de achtergrond van deze vuistregels onderzocht en de vuistregels zelf tegen het licht gehouden.

Processes occurring in the near-shore region operates on a small spatial and temporal scale. Simulations of these processes have long posed challenges for computational science, and to have accurate representations require a higher resolution. This results in computationally expensive models. This project aimed to investigate the possibility of...

When data in higher dimensions with a certain constraint on it, say a set of locations on a sphere, is encountered, some classical statistical analysis methods fail, as the data no longer assumes its values in a linear space. In this thesis we consider such datasets and aim to do likelihood-based inference on the center of the data. To model the...

MRI images are very useful for detecting diseases, as well as for the treatment of diseases. However, MRI scanners are usually too expensive for developing countries to purchase and maintain. Therefore, a less expensive scanner is being developed at Delft University of Technology and Leiden University Medical Center. Unfortunately, the images...

Starting with the three axioms of projective geometry, this paper explores concepts such as perspectives, projective maps, and harmonic additions that are unique to this geometry. In addition, important theorems such as Pappus's Theorem, Desargue's Theorem, and the Fundamental Property are mentioned and worked with extensively.

In dit onderzoek is een Monte Carlo algoritme beschreven voor het schatten van de dominante eigenwaarde en bijbehorende eigenvector van een niet-negatieve, irreducibele matrix. Naast de werking van het Monte Carlo algoritme is ook de convergentiesnelheid onderzocht. Tevens zijn een aantal simulaties in de praktijk uitgevoerd voor zowel het Monte...

In dit verslag behandelen we de Extrapolatie Stelling van Yano: een stelling die voor operators van de vorm T : f(x) -> T(f)(x) in bepaalde omstandigheden een afschatting geeft van de absolute integraal over T(f)(x) in termen van f(x) zelf. We zullen zien dat deze afschatting, en meer afschattingen van soortgelijke vorm, onder de juiste...

The scarcity of historical financial data has been a huge hindrance for the development algorithmic trading models ever since the first models were devised. Most financial models assume as hypothesis a series of characteristics regarding the nature of financial time series and seek extracting information about the state of the market through...

With the internet growing exponentially, the amount of information stored digitally becomes enormous. Storage systems are expected to withstand failures to prevent the loss of data. To provide the reliability, data is stored multiple times in different storage units. If in this case, one of the storage unit goes offline, a backup of the data...

In dit onderzoek zijn twee manieren van A/B-testen met elkaar vergeleken. A/B-testen is het vergelijken van verschillende website versies om te achterhalen welke versie voor een hogere opbrengt zorgt. Consumenten krijgen afzonderlijk meerdere versies van een website te zien: versie A, versie B, versie C, et cetera. De websites verschillen op...

In this thesis we study a class of interacting particle systems sharing a duality property. This class includes the Symmetric Inclusion Process (SIP(2k)), the Symmetric Exclusion Process (SEP(2j)) and the Independent Random Walkers (IRW). When these systems are in equilibrium (namely they are isolated from the exterior) they admit stationary...

During oil drilling, the position of wells is indirectly determined by measurements near the drilling bit. However, the measurements are disturbed by noise causing errors in the measurements. It is important for large oil companies like Shell to determine the position of wells with a certain degree of uncertainty. Therefore, the main objective...

In this work we set out to determine the impact, if any, of the analysis of news on stock price prediction, that is, are we able to predict stock movements more accurately on a consistent basis than a proposed baseline or random guessing on the basis of news’ text analysis. We considered a methodology to be more accurate if its success rate is...

With the growing wealth and economy of a country, there are an increasing amount of small and big businesses. Every company has its own marketing strategy that it uses in order to lure customers away from their competition and increase their sales. Choosing the perfect time to advertise or discount several products is of essence for a company to...

In this thesis, attention is paid to building different Bayesian networks. You can think of aspects such as parameter learning, search procedures and score functions. In addition, a distinction is made between the use of Discrete Bayesian Networks and Gaussian Networks. These models both have different assumptions which are also discussed. Finally...

The global use of azole antifungals as treatment against infections caused by <i>Candida</i> has led to an increase in azole resistance. The primal goal of this BSc thesis is to improve existing Mixed Integer Optimization models to classify azole resistance of <i>C. glabrata</i> more accurately by preventing overfitting. Moreover, these...

Modelling the spread of contagious diseases among people has been a research topic for over a hundred years. However, the increase in computation power in the recent years allows for more advanced scientific models. The well-known susceptible-infected-susceptible model is used to describe the spreading of a disease among a group of people. This...

In this thesis we investigate an extension of the famous Nurse Rostering Problem. The Nurse Rostering Problem is the problem of finding an optimal assignment of nurses to shifts given some constraints. We extend the problem by considering that the nurses different sets of skills by which they can only perform certain tasks. We want the working...
