    Textens inverkan på matematiska uppgifter: En undersökning om elevers textförståelse av matematikuppgifter i årskurs 52014Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to show the importance of task texts for students in grades 5 when solving mathematical problems. It was conducted in a class 5 (where the children are 11 years old). The pupils were assigned two different tests with mathematical problems; one where the problems were described in text and one where the problems were presented with numbers and mathematical signs. Previously done research, done on bilingual children, (Bernardo, 2002) shows that pupils tend to do better on mathematical tests when no text is presented. My research supports that theory even though the correlation is not that strong. The big discovery laid in the fact that boys tend to perform significantly lower results compared to the girls.

    Private Equity: Långsiktigt eller kortsiktigt investeringsbeteende för de svenska Private equity-bolagen?2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to examine large Swedish Private Equity firm’s investment behavior towards their target companies. Do Private Equity companies make long-term investments in their target companies or do they intend to save cost at the expense of staff to generate quick profits. The study examines the majority stakes of the transactions made by Swedish Private Equity companies in the period of 1996-2016. By examining variables such as the years before the exit, type of exit, the percentage of Quick flip transactions and if the Private Equity companies in general transfer majority shares in purchases and sales. The study is supplemented with two samples that investigate how the Private Equity companies acted as owners in target companies. This is done by examining the change of different key ratios over time, which is put in perspective by examining public companies. The study shows that, on average private equity companies tend to have a stronger development than the public companies. On the other hand, the study has problems with limited sampling, which makes it difficult to generalize the results from the study. However, the essay show tendencies that the results complementing the key ratios with a confidence interval test. The Private Equity companies show a more stable change over time than the public companies which also could been generated through the small sample size. Even though the conclusion of the paper is that Private Equity companies act as intermediaries that generate benefits to the market by increasing productivity in general. However, discussions about the definition of a short-term behavior are also included. The conclusion is, instead of focusing on time, the focus should be the value creation of the target companies when making assumptions on short-term behavior of Private equity companie

    Utbrottets aktörer: En läromedelsanalys om första världskrigets aktörer2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 300 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    The objective of this paper is to investigate how the image of the First World War and its background have been projected in teaching materials from the 1950s as well as in a number of following decades until today. Vital to this research are Holmén's arguments that textbooks traditionally had a great impact on education in Swedish schools and almost acted as an unofficial curriculum. Furthermore Holmén believes that learning materials reflect society's view of history.

    This research focusses on the agents in each examined decade. By using the developed method, the key player is put in a cause and effect correlation, where the aim is to ascertain the agent’s impact - or as in the investigation termed verkanseffekt - on the outbreak of the First World War. This verkanseffekt is then classified as either having a high or a low level of impact.

    The investigation shows that through the various decades, starting from 1950 to the present, a change of agent focus has taken place. First, some agents have been phased out in favor of different agents. In other cases, agents were reformulated in new terms, even though it is clear that it is the same agent who was dealt with. Furthermore, it appears that some agents emerge repeatedly, however, those agent´s impact on the war has changed. Mainly the reason for this is that different structures surrounding the various agents are interpreted differently at different times in history.

    Mål och motivation hos elitjuniorer i höjdhopp: En kvalitativ studie om hur elitjuniorer i höjdhopp arbetar med målsättningar2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to examine how the Swedish elite juniors in the high

    jump use goals based on current research. Most are setting up goals, but few

    understand how they can best use them. Goal setting can help the individual to a

    higher level of motivation, which in turn promotes a higher intensity for a longer

    period of time in the relatively tough training as an elite athlete commits. However,

    there is also the risk that the objectives hamper performance if used incorrectly.

    Which means it probably requires a good knowledge and experience to succeed. 10

    athletes were interviewed that in 2009 competed in the junior classes and formed the

    country's primary. The results show that there were well-developed thoughts of most

    on their goals that also was the fundamental reason to why they competed. However,

    there were indications that these goals were not used optimally for the active

    achievements. Some of this was a lack of communication between the coach and

    active in the goal setting process. A discussion took place on this basis of how goals

    can be optimized for a high jumper. In addition an opinion that goals of specific

    heights is negative was found which led to a discussion of goal focus at different

    times.

    Spänningsomvandlare för superkondensatorer2003Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This degree project was made at Bofors Defence AB in Karlskoga. In this report I will explain how a super capacitor can be used in a power supply purpose. The report contains how to get a high voltage from these capacitors by a step-up controller. This voltage will be used in intelligent ammunition. I have seen that a proper step-up controller is hard to find on the market and that it’s difficult to get it work. The step-up controller that I chose didn’t work as I wanted but the super capacitors are very powerful and should work in this application, In this report I also describe how a protection of the capacitors can be designed in a serial charge application.

    The escalation of Alienation from Salingers Catcher in the rye to Mc Inerneys Story of my life1998Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay compares two American novels, Catcher in the rye by J. D. Salinger and Story of my Life by Jay mc Inerney, that deal with similar problems. The novels display certain structural as well as semantic similarities. Because of those similarities, which make a comparison between the books illustrative, the books have the potential of reflecting changes in society and add to our understanding of its’ development. This essay, thus, concentrates on the differences between the books, which are used to show how the feelings of disillusion and alienation that are salient features in both books, are escalated from Catcher in the Rye to Story of my life.

    Tillgänglighet på webben: Hur två olika statliga hemsidor har anpassat sitt innehåll för synskadade, hur de skiljer sig åt och varför2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Att tillgänglighet på webben är viktigt idag finns det inget tvivel om. Men ändå anses de standarder som är satta för tillgänglighet på webben som komplicerade och dåliga. Denna uppsats beskriver hur tillgänglighetskraven ställda från WCAG 2.0 är implementerade på skatteverket och polisens hemsida med inriktning på synskadade, hur tillgängliga dessa sidor är och hur de har valt att implementera dessa standarder. Dessa frågor besvarades genom att utföra dokumentstudier, där jag har testat och analyserat hemsidorna utifrån WCAG 2.0 dokumentet, användartester, där testpersoner med synskador fick navigera på hemsidorna och även intervjuer. Resultatet visar att tillgänglighet på webben är svårt att uppnå, även om de följer de standarder som är satta betyder det inte att hemsidorna är tillgängliga och att det finns utrymme att tolka och implementera dessa standarder på olika sätt.

    Analys av solcellsanläggningar påverkan på elnätet2015Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Examensarbetet handlar om vilka effekter mikroproduktion i form av solcellsenheter har och kommer att ha på Karlstads elnät. Via flera mätserier har här sammanställts vad som händer med elkvaliteten i nätet och vilka krav som ställs på elnätsbolag och framtida mikroproducenter. Genom bred teoretisk kunskap och praktiskt arbete med ett antal dataprogram har denna rapport arbetats fram och sammanställts. Vid ett flertal tillfällen har upphovsmännen bakom denna rapport gett sig ut i fält för att på plats ta del utav dagens former av solkraft samt också iakttagit arbetet bakom och inför elkvalitetsundersökningar.Syftet har i grunden varit att ge kunskap inför ökande volymer av mikroproduktion och att förbereda för framtida förändringar och ombyggnationer i det lokala elnätet. Arbetet har resulterat i en tydlig bild av att dagens elnät har goda möjligheter att möta en ökning av producenter med låga produktionsnivåer. Det har konstaterats att försiktighet bör tas vid inkoppling av anläggningar vad gäller enfas och trefas. Eftersträvansvärt är att använda trefasinkoppling för att undvika snedbelastningar i nätet.

    Konsumenters preferenser vid valet av köpkanal2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Internet is a part of everyday life and most people are now used to shopping online. This in turn has led to the fact that companies with traditional stores lack knowledge of what their customers wants and their preferences about buying. Creating an understanding of what customers wants has always been the focus of business to maintain and create loyalty towards consumers. The purpose of the study is therefore to investigate which preferences determine loyalty within traditional stores and online stores.  The factors studied are pricequality, price awareness, service, time efficiency, trust and choice. These variables are the independent variables of the study which will be tested against the dependent variables which is loyalty in traditional stores and loyalty online. The study is limited to consumers who bought clothes last year. The design of the study is based on quantitative methodology were surveys have been the source of data collection. 187 people responded to the survey which has then been analyzed in SPSS using multivariate regression. The result of the study shows that the preferences regarding loyalty within traditional stores were service and pricequality. The results also show that the preferences regarding loyalty within online stores are service, time efficiency and trust.

    The study contributes to research by measuring which preferences affect loyalty when shopping in traditional stores and in online stores. By providing an understanding of which preferences determine loyalty within traditional stores and online stores, companies can understand why consumers are loyal and use the information to support strategical decisions within companies.

    Elevers kunskaper om världen geografiskt: En undersökning om elevers geografiska världsuppfattning2011Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

     

    The purpose of this study is to examine students' geographical world view in grades 6 can look like and find out how students are in their geographical worldview in comparison to what the school plan says. I also want to explore what might influence their geographical worldview. Studies have been made through a survey and with two tasks which was to paint their own worldview and put out the European countries on a map. This was conducted with two classes in Year 6 where 51 students have participated.

       The results show that these students' perceptions look very different. However, it is consistent that the world consists of a globe for many students. The school plan says that to reach the grades of E in Year 6, pupils have a basic knowledge ofSweden, Scandinavia andEuropegeographical names which a few students have. I think these students need to gain more knowledge and learning opportunities in order to achieve this goal.

    Students learn the most about new places in the world (according to surveys) through television and school.

    Trombon i blodet?: Vilka faktorer påverkar trombonelevers val av sitt instrument?2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this survey I have been trying to find out which factors influence the students’ choice of instrument. I hope to, through the results, gain knowledge about how to reach interested students in my future work as a trombone educator.

    I have let 15 students that have played trombone in the County Music Academy one to three years, answer my inquiry concerning their choice of instrument. The students’ parents were also asked to give an explanation to what they think made their child play the trombone and whether they tried to influence their child in the choice of instrument. The answers show clearly that these parents have not influenced their children’s choice of instrument and that the impression you and I as a teacher give during the first session seems to be of great importance.

    "Vad gör jag nu då?": En studie om tillträdesstrategier som språkligt sårbara barn använder sig av.2017Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative study examines preschool teachers’ experience concerning if children with languageimpairment suffer from exclusion from play with other children. The study also examines theirexperience about what kind of access rituals children with language impairment use to gain access inother children’s free play. Interviews were conducted with two preschool teachers.The result shows that according to preschool teachers’ experience, exclusion can depend on the child’snative language. They notice more exclusion among the children with other native language thanSwedish. They also experience that these children don’t search access to play in the same extent aschildren with Swedish as mother tongue. The result shows that children, no matter speech competence,use the same kind of non-verbal access rituals when they search access to play. The variation of ritualsdepends on the child’s personality, not on language competence. Children use their body language inthe shape of eye contact, body contact and also sign language is used in some situations. Children withdeveloped language use the body language when they want access but they also rely on their speechwhen they search for access.

    Användargruppers medverkan vid införandet av ett nytt standardsystem - leder det till nöjda användare?2004Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    LO tidningen har gjort en undersökning på 800 arbetsplatser där någon form av IT-system har installerats, undersökningen visade att på var femte arbetsplats har IT-system förbättrat trivseln och arbetsklimatet. En gemensam faktor för dem som har lyckats bra är att användarmedverkan varit stor. Men trots att användarinvolvering har använts inom produktutveckling i flera decennier finns det nästan inga studier som fastlagt om det verkligen ger bättre slutprodukter. Syftet med denna uppsats är att beskriva användargruppers medverkan i processen vid införandet av ett nytt standardsystem och förklara individuella egenskaper som har påverkat hur nöjd användaren har blivit med systemet. Uppsatsen baseras på teoretiska studier av bland annat systemutveckling, användarinvolvering och nöjdhet och på intervjuer med representanter från två olika användargrupper, en chef och ett antal undersköterskor. Vi plockade ut tre egenskaper hos användarna som vi ansåg viktiga för hur nöjd användaren blir, vilken datorvana användaren har, attityd till tekniken och uppfattning av systemet. Det resultat vi kom fram till var att användarinvolvering spelar roll för graden av nöjdhet hos användaren. Vi har kommit fram till att de tre egenskaperna datorvana, attityd till tekniken och uppfattning om systemet har påverkat de olika användarna i deras nöjdhet med systemet. God da-torvana och positiv attityd till tekniken hos de båda användargrupperna har visat sig ge en högre grad av nöjdhet. Utan datorvana kan det vara svårt att ha en positiv attityd till den nya tekniken eftersom det inte går att föreställa sig hur datorer kan underlätta arbetet. Vår undersökning visar också att de personer som varit tidigt involverade vid införandet av ett nytt IT-system har en högre grad av nöjdhet än personer som inte blivit in-v-o-l-v-erade förrän vid implementeringen.

    Ekonomisk information ur ett internt perspektiv: En kvalitativ studie ur både företags och anställdas perspektiv2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Economic information is useful for all companies and its stakeholders for decision-making and to provide information about the company’s financial position. The company has to consider the different needs of information and interests of the various stakeholders with the economic information in order to provide relevant information to all stakeholders. Employees’ are an internal primary stakeholder that plays an important role within a company. However, previous research has mostly focused on the company's communication of economic information to external stakeholders. Thus, it is interesting to study how communication of economic information to employees looks like and if employees have sufficient knowledge about the economic information. The purpose of this paper is to create an understanding of how communication of economic information looks within companies. The purpose is achieved through qualitative interviews with both the sender of the economic information perspective and the employees', the receivers. The result of the study shows that there is a gap of knowledge due to the deficient internal communication of economic information. This is due to the fact that employees have limited knowledge about the economic information and the senders of the economic information do not always take into account the employees' knowledge. This is because there is generally insufficient understanding of what economic information means and therefore an information gap arises because employees do not understand which economic information that is needed to satisfy their interests.

    Förbättring av Camcoil: Integrering av stöd samt bandnyp2013Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The assignment were assigned by Camatec Industriteknik AB. Camatec is a Karlstadlocated consulting company, they make everything from pilot studies to complete projects in mechanical design and calculation. They even have their own patented product, Camcoil. It is a winder for steel strips and is used for example with hardening of the steel strip. The assignment has been to solve the problems encountered by some customers within this product. The product which is relatively simple consists of a mantle which can vary in diameter by means of hydraulic cylinders The problem was that it had concurred indentations on the striped steel next to the Camcoil. This destroys the further handling of the coil. The goal has been to develop three kinds of solutions that take into account different customer requirements. These solutions have been divided into price ranges, thus low-cost, mid-cost, and high-cost. The high-cost solution has been a combination of the mid-cost-solution and a bandgrip. One wish was to simplify the existing bandgrip.

    The functional requirements those are set depending on the customer:

    • Must be able to prevent sagging, then some form of support should be available to the band at reeling.

    • Not allowed to weld in the mantle beneath the welded ears.

    • Must be able to take a band-pull at max 1 ton.

    • The space at the clearance on the reel should be free at the use of lifting hook (midcost, high-cost)

    • Steel strip with thickness 0.2-1 mm is to be pinched to the reel (High-cost).

    • A stop for the band at pinching must exist (high-cost).

    The non-functional requirements that have applied for all price ranges:

    • Develop the simplest solution as possible.

    • Standard components recommend being used to reduce costs.

    • The solution should be user friendly and easy to maintain.

    The major problem has been the lack of space in the reel with the requirements of midcost solution. Due to a lifting hook to be used it has been very difficult to come up with a mechanism that would work as a support. A comprehensive concept generation has been done with a number of different concepts for each price ranges solution. The concepts have been evaluated and compared and with the help of elimination- and decision matrix has a concept selection for each price range been developed. The result for the low-cost solution is a rolled sheet metal that is overstrung on the outside of the mantle, this means when the mantle will collapse the rolled sheet metal will follow along. Mid-cost solution resulted in a mechanical lid uses mantle movement with the help of parallel rods wander vertically down and account the space for the lifting hook. A simplification of the bandgrip were made with boomerang stays, this gave more space and fewer parts. The combination of the mid-cost solution and the simplified bandgrip were the high-cost solution.

    Framgångsbestämmande faktorer för nystartade småföretag - en uppföljningsstudie av entreprenörer i Kristinehamn2005Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta är en uppsats som utreder orsakerna till varför vissa entreprenörer lyckas med sina nystartade företag medan andra misslyckas. Analysen av vilka faktorer som är betydelsefulla bygger på en enkätundersökning av entreprenörer i Kristinehamns kommun. Personerna som intervjuats har det gemensamt att de under perioden 1999-2004 har drivit små aktiebolag i Kristinehamn med varierarande resultat. Analysen består till största delen av jämförelser mellan de entreprenörer vars företag överlevt och de entreprenörer vars företag av någon anledning blivit tvungna att upphöra med verksamheten. Utredningen visar att det är svårt att finna några generella förklaringar till varför vissa entreprenörer lyckas medan andra misslyckas. Undersökningen identifierar trots allt några faktorer som är kritiska för hur framgångsrikt en entreprenör och dennes företag kommer att bli.

Syftet med uppsatsen är att förstå och jämföra hur Föreningssparbanken utformat den multikulturella verksamheten vid bankkontoren i Rinkeby och Uppsala. Den tilltagande mångfalden i den svenska befolkningen ligger som grund för Föreningssparbankens utformning av multikulturella banker. I uppsatsen kommer Rinkeby och Uppsala att studeras, vilka är två av den nya formen av bankkontor. Bankkontoren har utformats för att möta kundunderlaget med multikulturella inslag. För att uppfylla syftet och genomföra uppsatsen formulerades en forskningsfråga, enligt följande: Hur har Föreningssparbanken utformat den multikulturella verksamheten i Rinkeby och Uppsala och vilka är de tydligaste skillnaderna? Vi har valt att använda oss av en kvalitativ metod. Då uppsatsen är en del av ett större forskningsprojekt sammanfogas fallstudiemetodiken med aktionsforskning. För att genomföra jämförelsen i resultatredovisningen har en komparativ metod tillämpats. I uppsatsen har ett eget teoretiskt verktyg tillverkats med utgångspunkt från Lindvalls processorientering och Hofstedes interkulturella förståelse. Det empiriska materialet har samlats in genom semistrukturerade intervjuer. Empirin har sammanlänkats med teorin och utifrån den kopplingen har vi analyserat och dragit slutsatser. För att besvara forskningsfrågan och konkretisera bidraget från vår uppsats arbetade vi fram ett antal nyckelbegrepp som bidragit till utformningen av verksamheten i respektive bank. I Rinkeby är de viktiga nyckelbegreppen: Kundernas tillit, språkligkompets, kunskap om etiska koder och medarbetarnas engagemang. I Uppsala är de viktiga nyckelbegreppen: Kompetens höjande aktiviteter, medarbetarnas delaktighet, ökad förståelse och tydligt samhällsansvar. Uppsatsen avslutas med ett diskussions och reflektionskapitel där vi själva kommenterar uppsatsens empiriska material och de slutsatser som presenterats.

    Optimism & Känsla av Sammanhang: En Jämförelse Mellan Tjänstemän och Kollektivanställda2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    We set out to compare two different categories of workers: the, so called, white- and blue collar workers. The studies aim was to measure if there were any observable differences between the two in means of optimism and sense of coherence. There are two tools created for measuring optimism and sense of coherence, the Life Orientation Test – Revised (LOT-R) measures an individual’s level of optimism and Aaron Antonovsky devised a test for measuring an individual’s level of sense of coherence (SOC). Optimism is best explained like a way to measure anticipation, how an individual expect future events to fall out. SOC is best described in what manner said individual copes with life and its events.The result was analyzed with help from scientific theories such as Marx theory of alienation, The Life Mode Analysis and the Regulatory Focus Theory. The Regulatory Focus Theory can best be described as a motivational theory as it has a main focus on the individual’s aims and goals. Marx’s theory of alienation was chosen because it offers thoughts on how work affects an individual’s person.Whilst conducting the study we observed a clear correlation between the tests (LOT-R and SOC), high scores in one test correlated with high tests in the other as well as the opposite. This was further analyzed as it posted an interesting viewpoint on the relationship between optimism and sense of coherence.The results were not showing a big difference between the groups. It did however show a small one, which was consistent throughout all parts of the tests. Members of career life mode showed consistently higher values throughout the conducted test to which we offer a number of possible explanations.

    Sammanfattning

    Titel: Svenska fastighetsmäklarkontors syn på sociala medier som marknadsföringskanal.

    Författare: John Andersson och Niklas Nilsson

    Handledare: Johan Netz

    Ämne: Kandidatuppsats i företagsekonomi

    Problemformulering: Då fastighetsmäklarkontor arbetar i en konservativ bransch men vill vara nytänkande, är användningen av sociala medier ett steg i den riktningen. Eftersom fastighetsmäklarkontoren är nya vid denna användning är det intressant att se deras användarkunskap samt riskhantering kring denna nya marknadsföringskanal.

    Syfte: Syftet med denna uppsats är att förstå hur olika fastighetsmäklarkontor använder sociala medier som marknadsföringskanal, samt hur de hanterar de utmaningar som uppkommer i användandet av sociala medier.

    Metod: Studien har genomförts genom en kvalitativ intervjustudie. Primärdatan utgår från sex semistrukturerade intervjuer med representanter från sex olika fastighetsmäklarkontor i Karlstad och sekundärdatan baseras på vetenskapliga artiklar samt böcker.

    Teori: Här beskrivs övergripande tidigare forskning om marknadsföring och sedan om sociala medier som marknadsföringskanal.Resultat: Resultatet från de sex intervjuade representanterna av fastighetsmäklarkontoren genererade i tre kategorier, modernisering, kännedom och hantering av sociala medier. Modernisering och kännedom hänsyftar till hur och varför fastighetsmäklarkontor använder sig av sociala medier medan hantering av sociala medier tar hänsyn till hur fastighetsmäklarkontoren ser på de utmaningar som sociala medier innefattar och hur de hanterar dessa.

    Diskussion: Här jämförs den tidigare forskningen om sociala medier med fastighetsmäklarkontorens åsikter.

    Slutsats: Sociala medier är en del av fastighetsmäklarkontorens moderniseringsarbete och fastighetsmäklarkontor bör använda sig av sociala medier som marknadsföringskanal. Sociala medier är en utmaning och tidskrävande för fastighetsmäklarkontoren men samtliga anser att sociala medier kan förbättra deras ställning på marknaden om det hanteras korrekt.

    A semantic study of triggers of the mandantive subjunctive in British English2004Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    During the 20th century, the use of the subjunctive in that-clauses following expressions of will and command, the so called mandative subjunctive, has increased, and American English has been leading the way. The mandative subjunctive expresses volition and futurity, and the expressions that take the subjunctive are referred to as triggers. The aim of this paper was to investigate whether new triggers of the mandative subjunctive could be found as the construction has become more common in British English, and, if that was the case, whether the semantic range of the triggers had widened. The material for the investigation was obtained by using computer based corpora of newspaper texts. Some semantically interesting triggers were discovered, and the results indicate that the semantic range of words that function as triggers may be widening in general language. This conclusion is supported by the findings of sentences without overt mandative triggers – a possibility rarely mentioned in grammars. In such sentences, the necessary elements of volition and futurity are supplied by the context rather than a specific trigger. I have deemed the traditional division of triggers into three categories according to word class unsatisfactory. I have chosen to put them into five different categories: sentences without overt triggers, mandative verbs, mandative nouns, personal adjectives and impersonal constructions. The latter group contains impersonal adjectives, prepositional phrases and verbs, and differ syntactically as well as semantically from the other groups. The general conclusion is that the information about the mandative subjunctive in traditional learner grammars is unsatisfactory. Its usage is more complicated and widespread than these grammars generally indicate.

    A lattice model for topological phases2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Matter exists in many different phases, for example in solid state or in liquid phase. There are also phases in which the ordering of atoms is the same, but which differ in some other respect, for example ferromagnetic and paramagnetic states. According to Landau's symmetry breaking theory every phase transition is connected to a symmetry breaking process. A solid material has discrete translational symmetry, while liquid phase has continuous translational symmetry. But it has turned out that there also exist phase transitions that can occur without a symmetry breaking. This phenomenon is called topological order. In this thesis we consider one example of a theoretical model constructed on a two dimensional lattice in which one obtains topological order.

    AFM study of Micro Fibrllated Cellulose, (MFC) in controlled atmosphere2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is used to characterize Micro Fibrillated Cellulose (MFC) produced by two different methods according to their size and shape. For one of these MFC-types, their interaction with the humidity in the atmosphere is investigated and their swelling is calculated. MFC is a relatively new material based on cellulose fibres extracted from wood. This study is performed in co-operation with Stora Enso research centre. Stora Enso is a renewable material company which uses mostly wood based raw materials in their production. The measured swelling is ~ 5 % and depends on the number of elementary fibrils included in the fibre.

    Bidrar Case Management enligtAktivt Uppsökande SamhällsbaseradBehandling och Rehabilitering tillminskad psykiatrisk slutenvård?2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Idag riktas allt mer fokus i samhällsdebatten och i politiken på personer med

    allvarlig psykisk sjukdom. Man debatterar dels hur samhället skall kunna tillhandahålla en

    högkvalitativ vård och ett bra omhändertagande, men också ur ett samhällsekonomiskt

    perspektiv. Den psykiatriska slutenvårdens kostnader är höga och debatten handlar ofta om

    hur dessa kostnader skall kunna reduceras.

    Denna studie vill titta närmare på om metoden Case management enligt

    Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) kan bidra till att den psykiatriska

    slutenvårdskonsumtionen minskar för personer med allvarlig psykisk sjukdom. För att

    granska detta har intervjuer med fyra brukare använts där frågeställningen var fokuserad på

    deras subjektiva upplevelser av att erhålla Case management enligt ACT under en period av

    tre år. Vidare granskades skattningar enligt Kvalitetsstjärnan som utförts under en tre års

    period. Därefter inhämtades statistik från databas avseende respondenternas konsumtion av

    psykiatrisk slutenvård under tre år. Dessutom har artiklar i ämnet Case management kontra

    psykiatrisk slutenvård granskats.

    Resultaten av intervjuerna visade att respondenterna upplevt att Case

    management enligt ACT hade varit viktigt för dem för att undvika psykiatrisk slutenvård.

    Kvalitetsstjärnans resultat visade på en ökad livskvalitet, minskade besvär och detta i

    kombination med en minskad konsumtion av psykiatrisk slutenvård. Vidare visade statistiken

    från respondenternas psykiatriska slutenvårdskonsumtion att antalet inläggningar minskade

    och antalet dagar som inläggningarna varade minskade också. Den dokumentation som

    granskats i vetenskapliga artiklar visar att Case management enligt ACT är den metod som

    bäst medverkar till att den psykiatriska slutenvårdskonsumtionen minskar.

    Slutsatsen är att genom arbetssättet Case management enligt ACT tillsammans

    med en hög programtrohet och validerade mätmetoder såsom Kvalitetsstjärnan kan den

    psykiatrisk slutenvårdskonsumtion för personer med allvarlig psykisk sjukdom minska.

    Nyckelord: Case management, Assertive Community Treatment, ACT,

    Kvalitetsstjärnan, psykiatrisk slutenvårdskonsumtion.
