  • The Structure of Digital Partner Choice: A Bourdieusian by Andreas Schmitz

    By Andreas Schmitz

    This paintings techniques the fashionable phenomenon of on-line courting, studying the methods humans utilize its technical and social power. specifically, the clients' mate personal tastes, offerings, thoughts, and interactions are analyzed utilizing the cutting edge approach to click-stream observations and web-questionnaire information. For the aim of those analyses, significant theories are used - an specific thought of person mate selection, and the extra normal relational idea constructed via Pierre Bourdieu, which is helping to spotlight the social buildings either underlying and as a result of mating on-line. effects exhibit that on-line courting isn't a associate marker loose from social constitution, yet that the normal social stipulations came across offline also are reproduced during this digital atmosphere. unlike the image drawn by way of media discourse and ads, on-line courting represents a associate marketplace which fulfills the promise of happiness in a socially differential way.

  • Searching for Dark Matter with the ATLAS Detector by Steven Schramm

    By Steven Schramm

    This thesis describes the quest for darkish subject on the LHC within the mono-jet plus lacking transverse momentum ultimate country, utilizing the complete dataset recorded in 2012 by means of the ATLAS scan. it's the first time that the variety of jets isn't really explicitly constrained to 1 or , hence expanding the sensitivity to new indications. as a substitute, a stability among the main full of life jet and the lacking transverse momentum is needed, therefore identifying mono-jet-like ultimate states. Collider searches for darkish topic have usually used sign versions utilizing powerful box theories (EFTs), even if evaluating to effects from direct and oblique detection experiments, the place the variation in power scale renders many such comparisons invalid. The thesis positive factors the 1st powerful and accomplished remedy of the validity of EFTs in collider searches, and gives a method in which the several classifications of darkish topic experiments will be in comparison on a valid and reasonable basis.

  • Algemene Wet Bijzondere Ziektekosten by C. C. Beerepoot, R.N. van Donk, H.E.G.M. Hermans, J.J.M.

    By C. C. Beerepoot, R.N. van Donk, H.E.G.M. Hermans, J.J.M. Linders

    De invoering van de Zorgverzekeringswet (Zvw) in line with 1 januari 2006 betekende een drastische wijziging van het zorgstelsel. Na de invoering richtte de politieke aandacht zich vervolgens op de toekomst van de Algemene rainy Bijzondere Ziektekosten (AWBZ). Deze eerste druk van de Algemene rainy Bijzondere Ziektekosten biedt een doorkijkje naar de ontstaansgeschiedenis van de AWBZ, de huidige structuur en juridische inbedding. Ook wordt inzicht gegeven in de politieke ontwikkelingen die leiden (of al hebben geleid) tot een wijziging van de AWBZ en onderliggende regelgeving. De uitvoering van de AWBZ door zorgverzekeraars, de overheveling van herstelgerichte behandeling naar de Zvw, alsmede raakvlakken met andere aanverwante wetgeving worden in dit boek uitgebreid belicht.

  • Networked control systems with intermittent feedback by Domagoj Tolić, Sandra Hirche

    By Domagoj Tolić, Sandra Hirche

    Networked keep watch over structures (NCSs) are spatially allotted structures for which the communique among sensors, actuators and controllers is discovered through a shared (wired or instant) conversation community. NCSs provide numerous merits, corresponding to diminished deploy and upkeep charges, in addition to larger flexibility, over traditional keep an eye on structures within which components of keep an eye on loops trade details through devoted point-to-point connections. The crucial objective of this ebook is to offer a coherent and flexible framework appropriate to varied settings investigated through the authors over the past a number of years. This framework is appropriate to nonlinear time-varying dynamic crops and controllers with behind schedule dynamics; a wide category of static, dynamic, probabilistic and priority-oriented scheduling protocols; not on time, noisy, lossy and intermittent details alternate; decentralized regulate difficulties of heterogeneous brokers with time-varying directed (not unavoidably balanced) conversation topologies; kingdom- and output-feedback; off-line and online intermittent suggestions; optimum intermittent suggestions via Approximate Dynamic Programming (ADP) and Reinforcement studying (RL); and keep watch over platforms with exogenous disturbances and modeling uncertainties.
