Methodische Entwicklung und Bewertung von Elektrifizierungskonzepten für innerstädtische Nutzfahrzeuge

Gräbener, Sven (2017)

Der Einsatz elektrischer und hybridisierter Antriebe ermöglicht die Energieeffizienz von Fahrzeugen zu steigern und gleichzeitig lokale Emissionen zu senken. Insbesondere innerstädtisch tragen schw...

Direct and indirect climate change impacts in the land-use sector

Stevanović, Miodrag (2017)

Rapid exploitation of fossil resources has resulted in a massive release of greenhouse gases (GHG) into the atmosphere. This anthropogenic perturbation of the complex climate system could result in...

Identifier Gold Standard for NTCIR 11 Math Wikipedia Dataset

Schubotz, Moritz (2016-07-18)

Mathematical formulae are essential in science, but face challenges of ambiguity, due to the use of a small number of identifiers to represent an immense number of concepts. Corresponding to word s...

Soft robotic hands for compliant grasping

Deimel, Raphael (2017)

The thesis considers the problem of grasping for autonomous robots, with a focus on the design and construction of robotic hands and grippers. The approach we take is to fundamentally reconsider th...

Balancing reserve provision in a decarbonized electricity sector

Lorenz, Claudio Casimir Lucas (2017)

Diese Dissertation analysiert die Chancen und Herausforderungen bei der Regelleistungsbereitstellung im dekarbonisierten Stromsektor mit Hilfe von Stromsektormodellen. Der erste Teil konzentriert s...

On the response of a generic swirl flame to transverse planar acoustics

Saurabh, Aditya (2017)

Heat release rate fluctuations are invariably generated at flames under the influence of acoustic and/or hydrodynamics fluctuations. At the same time, heat release rate fluctuations support acousti...

Layered and composite biopolymers: mechanical, physical and antimicrobial properties

Kaygusuz, Hakan (2017)

In this thesis, two oppositely charged biopolyelectrolytes –alginate and chitosan- were focused on. The interactions between these biopolymers and the effect of surfactants on these biopolymers wer...

Application of one-way laser ranging data to the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) for time transfer, clock characterization and orbit determination

Bauer, Sven (2017)

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) mission carries a suite of seven instruments with the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) being one of them. Due to a hardware extension the instrument is...

Application of Gaussian graphical models to derive dietary intake networks and association of the identified networks with risk of major chronic diseases in European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition-Potsdam Cohort

Iqbal, Khalid (2017)

Dietary pattern analysis is a preferable approach to characterize dietary intake and understand eating behaviors. Existing data reduction methods like principal component analysis (PCA) although id...

Impacts of fast water infiltration in fault zones and water extraction on land subsidence

Martinez Noguez, Abraham Isaac (2017)

Land subsidence is a complex phenomenon which occurs all around the world. The study and understanding of the phenomenon, its causes and effects, the processes, such as flow, deformation and fractu...

Changes of valence state and local structure in anode materials for lithium-ion batteries by X-ray absorption spectroscopy

Zhou, Dong (2017)

Electronic and local structural changes in three different promising anode materials (porous NiSi2/Si composite, nano-crystalline NiFe2O4 and ZnFe2O4) for lithium ion batteries are investigated by ...

On decomposability in robot reinforcement learning

Höfer, Sebastian (2017)

Reinforcement learning is a computational framework that enables machines to learn from trial-and-error interaction with the environment. In recent years, reinforcement learning has been successful...

Decoding implicit information from the electroencephalogram with methods from brain-computer interfacing

Wenzel, Markus (2017)

Research on brain-computer interfacing (BCI) has demonstrated that specific brain activity patterns can be detected in the electroencephalogram (EEG) with multivariate methods from machine learning...

The induction and function of the transcription factor c-myc in macrophages during pneumococcal pneumonia and legionellosis

Kabus, Christin Sophia (2017)

For infectious diseases, effective defense mechanisms which constitute an efficient innate host response are the keys to eliminate invading pathogens. According to different studies, the pathogenic...

Dynamic hedging in illiquid financial markets

Voß, Moritz (2017)

In this thesis, we address the problem of constructing effective hedging strategies against the financial risk of writing a contingent claim in an illiquid financial market. Mathematically, this am...

Periodic lateral polar structure-based waveguides in III-nitrides for quasi-phase matched second harmonic generation

Alden Angeles, Dorian Eduardo (2017)

Lasers emitting in the ultraviolet spectrum below 300 nm are desired for a variety of applications. Currently available deep UV laser systems are expensive, inefficient, stationary, require frequen...

Contribution to the development of technology-enhanced education in manufacturing and energy generation

Palacios Neffke, Jens C. (2017)

In order to revert a global ecological collapse that would jeopardize Earth’s capacity to sustain life, international organizations, such as the United Nations, have stressed the need to improve ma...

A secure system architecture for measuring instruments under legal control

Peters, Daniel (2017)

In many fields, application software must be stable and withstand attacks. Due to the trend of the "Internet of Things" these attacks increase in all areas where devices are connected via the open ...

Reflexively engaging with technologies of participation: constructive assessment for public participation methods

Voß, Jan-Peter (2015-11)

The chapter provides a view of the ongoing innovation of ‘citizen panels’ as a method public participation. It shows how recourse to technoscientific modes of political ordering is met by reflexive...

Innovating public participation methods: technoscientization and reflexive engagement

Voß, Jan-Peter; Amelung, Nina (2016)

We reconstruct the innovation journey of ‘citizen panels’, as a family of participation methods, over four decades and across different sites of development and application. A process of aggregatio...
