In society, institutions are the foundation that governs human behaviour through rules, norms, and regulations. The actions and interactions of individuals are shaped by these institutions, forming a cyclic system with numerous parameters and factors. Altering any of these factors, triggers the entire system to transition into a new state that...

Changes in policy over the last thirty years, particularly within advanced economies, have allowed for increased financialization, deregulation and globalisation of housing. What differentiates real-estate from other financial markets is that it possesses a salient socio-spatial geography. Housing inequalities are often framed as an outcome...

We study the problem of identifying a linear time-varying output map from measurements and linear time-varying system states, which are perturbed with Gaussian observation noise and process uncertainty, respectively. Employing a stochastic model as prior knowledge for the parameters of the unknown output map, we reconstruct their estimates...

For a simple graph Γ and for unital C<sup>*</sup>-algebras with GNS-faithful states (A<sub>v</sub>,φ<sub>v</sub>) for v∈VΓ, we consider the reduced graph product (A,φ)=⁎<sub>v,Γ</sub>(A<sub>v</sub>,φ<sub>v</sub>), and show that if every C<sup>*</sup>-algebra A<sub>v</sub> has the completely contractive approximation property (CCAP) and...

Gabor phase retrieval is the problem of reconstructing a signal from only the magnitudes of its Gabor transform. Previous findings suggest a possible link between unique solvability of the discrete problem (recovery from measurements on a lattice) and stability of the continuous problem (recovery from measurements on an open subset of R<sup>2...

In this article, the problem of the optimal reset control design for Lipschitz nonlinear systems is addressed. The reset controller includes a base linear controller and a reset law that enforces resets to the controller states. The reset law design is strongly dependent on the appropriate design of the base controller. For this reason, in...

The private rented sector (PRS) plays an increasingly important role in accommodating young people and migrants in China’s metropolitan cities. However, the PRS in China is still underdeveloped, as evidenced by, e.g. a low degree of professionalisation, lack of basic rental laws and regulations, and poor housing experiences of tenants. The...

The nature of shocks and crisis is highly diverse; crises and shocks tend to conglomerate rather than occur as single events. People and places are affected differently and have distinct abilities and resources to respond, cope and recover. Key here are path-dependent socio-economic living conditions along with pre-existent intersectional...

An ongoing question in capability research is how to incorporate the value of freedom into the measurement of inequality. This article proposes an approach to answering this question in the housing domain and its operationalisation. The approach places an evaluation focus to the conditions constraining or expanding housing choices in the...

We show L<sup>p</sup>-estimates for square roots of second order complex elliptic systems L in divergence form on open sets in R<sup>d</sup> subject to mixed boundary conditions. The underlying set is supposed to be locally uniform near the Neumann boundary part, and the Dirichlet boundary part is Ahlfors–David regular. The lower endpoint for...

As cities grow, the benefits of living in them are increasingly unequally distributed. USA cities, in particular, have experienced rapid suburbanization of poverty and decreased levels of access to jobs for transit-dependent and vulnerable communities. The public transit challenges in suburbs call for innovative forms of transit to turn the...

In this thesis we study for which domain types the Poincare inequality holds for all functions having continuous first derivative. We first consider the classical Poincare inequality, which we prove holds for a very large class of open sets in R<sup>d</sup>. We then constructively prove that bounded, open, and connected domains in R<sup>d</sup>,...

Wealth inequality exists all over the world. This can be seen as a social problem because it violates accepted norms of egalitarian distribution. Moreover, wealth inequality can negatively affect a number of areas, including economic growth. However, wealth inequality also has advantages. For example, it provides incentives to engage in risky...

The thesis aims to unveil and challenge institutionalized gender hierarchical relations between the military and women in conflict environments. It critically examines the military as an institution inherently intertwined with conflict in periods of war and during periods of conflict. The thesis argues that the military plays a significant role...

The story of modern Botswana is that of dualities. At the time of independence in 1966, it was the second poorest country in the world in terms of GDP. Since then, it has seen explosive economic growth and accompanying improvements in human development. It is now ranks third in sub-saharan Africa in both GDP per capita and HDI. This impressive...

PURPOSE<br/>Addressing the issue of gender inequality in Dutch energy organisations has become increasingly important, but understanding the complex interplay of personal factors and various aspects of gender inequality that contribute to the perception of this wicked problem remains a challenge. This study aims to explore the refracted...

In this article, we treat extended balancing for continuous-time linear time-invariant systems. We take a dissipativity perspective, thus, resulting in a characterization in terms of linear matrix inequalities. This perspective is useful for determining a priori error bounds. In addition, we address the problem of structure-preserving model...

Generative adversarial networks (GANs) are a class of generative models with two antagonistic neural networks: a generator and a discriminator. These two neural networks compete against each other through an adversarial process that can be modeled as a stochastic Nash equilibrium problem. Since the associated training process is challenging,...

For young adults on the Amsterdam housing market the accessibility of housing has been decreasing for years, due to soaring house prices and rents, the shrinkage and residualization of the social rental sector, and the precarization of the labor market. Consequently, many young people struggle to secure an affordable and adequate dwelling and...

Over the last decade, solar energy has proven to be a key technology in transitioning to a sustainable energy system. However, current solar energy policies favour affluent households, limiting the participation of disadvantaged households in the energy transition. This leaves disadvantaged households even more vulnerable to increasing energy...
