The variety of fruits and vegetables in today’s supermarkets is enormous. We investigated how color may lead consumers to anticipate differences in product properties. Forty volunteers rated the expected properties for carrots with different colors presented in pictures, together with their familiarity, purchase intention, and intended...

Using Maximum Likelihood (or Prediction Error) methods to identify linear state space model is a prime technique. The likelihood function is a nonconvex function and care must be exercised in the numerical maximization. Here the focus will be on affine parameterizations which allow some special techniques and algorithms. Three approaches to...

We present here a Bayesian framework of risk perception. This framework encompasses plausibility judgments, decision making, and question asking. Plausibility judgments are modeled by way of Bayesian probability theory, decision making is modeled by way of a Bayesian decision theory, and relevancy judgments are modeled by way of a Bayesian...

In the life-cycle cost analysis of a structure, the total cost of damage caused by external hazards like earthquakes, wind storms and flood is an important but highly uncertain component. In the literature, the expected damage cost is typically analyzed under the assumption of either the homogeneous Poisson process or the renewal process in...

Let (Formula presented.) and (Formula presented.) be probability spaces and X a Banach space. We prove that for all (Formula presented.), the conditional expectation with respect to any sub-(Formula presented.)-algebra (Formula presented.) of the product (Formula presented.)-algebra (Formula presented.) defines a bounded linear operator from ...

A novel adaptive sampling scheme for efficient global robust optimization of constrained problems is proposed. The method addresses expensive to simulate black-box constrained problems affected by uncertainties for which only the bounds are known, while the probability distribution is not available. An iterative strategy for global robust...

We present a novel approach for efficient optimization of systems consisting of expensive to simulate components and relatively inexpensive system-level simulations. We consider the types of problem in which the components of the system problem are independent in the sense that they do not exchange coupling variables, however, design...

We develop and test a model that suggests that expectations influence subjective usability and emotional experiences and, thereby, behavioral intentions to continue use and to recommend the service to others. A longitudinal study of 165 real-life users examined the proposed model in a proximity mobile payment domain at three time points: before...

Statistical analyses on actual data depict operational risk as an extremely heavy-tailed phenomenon, able to generate losses so extreme as to suggest the use of infinite-mean models. But no loss can actually destroy more than the entire value of a bank or of a company, and this upper bound should be considered when dealing with tail-risk...

Fabrication variations can have a detrimental effect on the performance of optical filters based on ring resonators. However, by using robust optimization these effects can be minimized and device yield can be significantly improved. This paper presents an efficient robust optimization technique for designing manufacturable optical filters based...

A novel technique for efficient global robust optimization of problems affected by parametric uncertainties is proposed. The method is especially relevant to problems that are based on expensive computer simulations. The globally robust optimal design is obtained by searching for the best worst-case cost, which involves a nested min-max...

Uncertainty is an unavoidable part of decision making. Decisions always have to be made before perfect knowledge on their consequences is known. However, there is no ‘perfect knowledge’ in hindsight. To research uncertainty and take actions proactively becomes the challenge to scientists and decision makers. In water resources planning and...

One purpose of exotic derivative pricing models is to enable financial institutions to quantify and manage their financial risk, arising from large books of portfolios. These portfolios consist of many non-standard exotic financial products. Risk is managed by means of the evaluation of sensitivity parameters, i.e. the so-called Greeks, the...

The aim of this paper is to empirically examine the influence of different types of credibility on the legitimacy to grant individual actors within consortia an innovation subsidy. Theorizing from the resource dependence view and the sociology of expectations, we hypothesize that four types of credibility are related to legitimacy: scientific...

Residential mobility theory proposes that moves are often preceded by the expression of moving desires and expectations. Much research has investigated how individuals form these pre-move thoughts, with a largely separate literature examining actual mobility. Although a growing number of studies link premove thoughts to subsequent moving...

We derive two types of saddlepoint approximations for expectations in the form of E[(X - K)+], where X is the sum of n independent random variables and K is a known constant. We establish error convergence rates for both types of approximations in the independently and identically distributed case. The approximations are further extended to...

Innovation at several levels is necessary in order to transform the current automotive based transportation system into a more sustainable one. Alternative propulsion systems, like fuelcell, battery-electric or hybrid vehicles were proposed, as green alternatives to the dominant fossil fuel based mobility system. In particular the technological...

Given the high number of encounters in traffic and the low number of accidents in which these result, it can be concluded that road users are quite good at interacting safely. To achieve a better understanding of this interactive behaviour, this thesis focused on road users' expectancies. In an explorative study, the aspects road users mention...
