Using Theories from Economics and Finance for Information Security Risk Management
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2016:187, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
Risk management in information security has traditionally been approached from a technical perspective, and a variety of technical controls are deployed to prevent any future information security event. However, recent ...
Elucidating the pathogenesis of osteochondrosis using nonlinear optical microscopy
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:309, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Abstract Osteochondrosis is defined as a focal disturbance in endochondral ossification and causes joint pain and lameness in several species of animals, including humans. The focal disturbance occurs at predilection ...
Spin-Orbit-Induced Electronic Phenomena in Superconductors and Antiferromagnets
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:362, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
In this thesis, we present three scientific papers that are all related to electronic phenomena induced by spin-orbit coupling. Papers 1 and 2 concern spin-orbit induced effects in superconductors and Paper 3 treats similar ...
Sources of variation in metabolism of an aquatic ectotherm
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:370, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Summary of thesis: An important aspect of ecology is being able to predict and explain how life can adapt to environmental changes. Paramount in making accurate predictions is the disentangling of trait variation, and ...
