Furthermore, it is important that their running times are bounded, and that we can predict corresponding worst-case scenarios. Programs written in general purpose programming languages can crash or produce...

Imaging sensors are remarkable devices which are able to capture moments and present them in a form available to us for years to come. With the use of material properties and photon particles, charges can be produced which, in combination with electric circuitry, transform into information understandable to the human eye and eventually the brain...

In this thesis we look at the most cost-
effective trajectory for power limited rockets, i.e. the trajectory which costs the least amount of propellant. First some background information as well as the differences between thrust limited and power limited rockets will be discussed. Then the optimal trajectory for thrust limited rockets, the...

Currently the performance of a traditional forward supply chain is broadly studied in literature. The less known reverse supply chain is an upcoming research theme, with more companies adapting this concept. In the beverages industry this reverse logistics are common and based on returnable packaging, so called empties. Beer brewers are under a...

Tropical Cyclones (TCs) are in many regions responsible for severe damages and a great number of casualties, resulting from the severe wind speeds, rainfall, wave heights and storm surges. The recent hurricanes Harvey and Irma are examples of the great devastation that can be caused by a single event, and of the insufficient level of...

Costa Rica’s electric grid is dominated by renewable sources, mostly by hydropower 74% and with geothermal 12.4% and wind 10.6%. Hence, in dry season when the water levels drop significantly, there are difficulties to supply the national electricity demand (CENCE, 2016). Despite this and the added fact that the country’s has enormous solar...

Long before the existence of today’s computer, information and communication technologies, the design of current energy grids has been set. Nowadays, ‘conventional’ energy grids – including electricity, gas and thermal grids – are being transformed into smart grids, which consist of various technological components such as smart meters, energy...

The appearance of circular economy has been raised as a solution to rapidly diminishing resources and waste issues that constant economic growth entail. The transition from the current linear economy in which we take, make, use, and dispose of resources to a circular economy in which waste becomes raw material is expected to close material loop....

The value of travel time saving(VOTTS) is very important in cost benefit analysis(CBA) as it is used to calculate the monetary gain in case of an improvement in transport that leads to reduction in travel time. Although it is easy to directly calculate monetary gains due to a speed improvement, monetary gains due to transport service improvement...

In this thesis we model extreme log-returns on economic variables and apply this to Ortec Finance's model. These extreme log-returns are relevant for risk management applications such as Value-at-Risk and other measures of tail risk. We use extreme value theory to simulate economic variables with the desired tail behaviour. We pay special...

Intraday liquidity risk is a subject that applies to all banks, and arises whenever there is a timing mismatch between incoming and outgoing payments within a business day. In case such a mismatch occurs, the bank is exposed to the risk that it is unable to meet its payment obligations at the time expected. A liquidity buffer could help to...
