<b>Introduction:</b> Carotid atherosclerosis is characterized by the build-up of the so-called plaque tissue in the wall of the carotid artery. The rupture of carotid plaques can lead to acute manifestations, including ischemic stroke and transient ischaemic attack (TIA). The mechanism responsible for rupture is not yet unravelled, complicating...

In a globalized world, the rapid development in digital technologies and finance has enabled the successful growth of Airbnb around the world. The basic idea behind this growth is to take advantage of the underused assets —houses, apartments, or rooms and to profit from them. The spectacular growth in main cities has caused the social fabric of...

This paper outlines a mathematical model for the creation of a robust timetable for the optimization of the lightrail network in Rotterdam and The Hague. A novel spread-based goal function focuses on minimizing wait time as opposed to delay. The situation is modeled as a Quadratic Stochastic Programming problem, and solved by employing Monte...

The built environment is becoming healthier, smarter and more energy efficient during the transition to green building activity. Multi-sensor networks are a promising component of this transition, provided that their measurements are reliable. The reliability of the data is a real concern for DWA, as they use it for control purposes as well as...

Governments across the world looking to implement Open Government Data (OGD) initiatives undergo many problems. One such problem is the risk to privacy from opening data sets as most of the data is at a microdata level which corresponds to specific individuals. A solution to such a predicament is the application of Statistical Disclosure Control...

The goal of this thesis is to estimate parameters in a bidimensional Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process, namely a diffusion model which can be found in Favetto and Samson (2010), which considers plasma and interstitium concentrations. We first look at a general linear stochastic differential equation and some properties. Then we simulate possible paths...

This thesis explores existing and proposes new methods for assessing concentration risk in default-only credit risk models. Within the existing methods, the analytic Granularity Adjustment is studied in the single factor Gaussian threshold and in the CreditRisk+ framework. These adjustments are tested on a sample portfolio in the presence of...

The goal of this report is to present and describe the effort surrounding the completion of the Master Thesis Project of classification in football. Classification is a procedure which belongs in the field of Statistics. The objective is to capture, detect and distinguish certain actions relative to the environment of analysis. In our case we are...

Due to the presence of a monopile in a turbulent flow swirling vortices, known as horseshoe vortices, can form upstream of the structure near the cylinder-bed junction. Those vortices then travel downstream of the cylinder as they are being dragged along with the current. The horseshoe vortices can scoop up bed material surrounding the cylinder,...

The design of offshore and coastal hydraulic structures is very much dependent on the hydraulic boundary conditions, such as significant wave height, mean wave period and wave direction, among other parameters. A proper design value of these parameters is required during the design process, based on the corresponding safety philosophy and the...

In this modern age, data is being generated constantly and data is being saved for analysis everywhere. In the maritime industry, interest in the analysis of ship data has grown over the years. In this thesis, we will take a look at AIS data coupled with sea state data. AIS data is data generated from the ship, concerning the ship locations,...

In de statistiek zijn er verschillende methodes voor het uitvoeren van model selectie. Het verschil in deze methodes komt voort uit het verschil in stromingen. Voor niet-geneste model selectie zijn de meest ganbare stromingen de Bayes Factor en de likelihood ratio. D. M. Ommen en C. P. Saunders presenteerden theoretische resultaten voor de...

Automotive radar has an advantage over other sensors in that it is better at operating in bad weather conditions. To see the extent of the effect that adverse weather conditions might have on the statistics of the data a statistical analysis was performed on real measurement data. During heavy rain there is a shift that can be observed in the...

Additive manufacturing (AM) provides the opportunity for complex porous designs, without the costs depending on batch size. Therefore patient-specific implants can be rapidly manufactured. In clinical practice, reconstruction of the mandible is needed in case of bone tumors or trauma. Part of the mandible is removed and the shape of the missing...

In this thesis we are going to study outlier detection methods and propose a new method. Classical outlier detection is typically based on the assumption that the data is from a Gaussian/normal distribution. When the underlying distribution of a random sample is heavy tailed, so not normal , it is likely to have some extreme observations which...

A study on the fire safety concepts used in car parks. To asses the possible damage as a result of a fire, case studies were performed and changes in the car industry were analysed. The new type of fuel systems have resulted in new risks, which are not yet covered in the current design methodology. To understand the probability of a car park...

What is the actual value of a house and which factors contribute the most to it? In this thesis we do a thorough research and try to come up with an answer. We will set up models that approximate the current market values for all houses in the Netherlands. To do this, we use a lot of data from different sources. Various characteristics of houses...

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...
