    Background and aim: Multiple myeloma is a malignant chronic B-cell disorder characterized by a monoclonal proliferation of plasma cells in the bone marrow. Almost all multiple myeloma cases are preceded by the premalignant state, monoclonal gammopathy ...
  • Sigurdardottir, Heida Maria (Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, 2013)
    In this thesis, we explore how objects affect the space around them. We show that spatial information is extracted from even completely novel objects. Information derived from the shape of objects is swiftly and automatically integrated into a variety ...
  • Huang, Guo-yuan; Ohlsson, Tommy; Zhou, Shun (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-04-05)
    We investigate possible interactions between neutrinos and massive scalar bosons via g ϕ ¯ ν ν ϕ (or massive vector bosons via g V ¯ ν γ μ ν V μ ) and explore the allowed parameter space of the coupling constant g ϕ (or g V ) ...
  • Cano, Zach; Wang, Shan-Qin; Dai, Zi-Gao; Wu, Xue-Feng (Hindawi Limited, 2017)
    We present a detailed report of the connection between long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and their accompanying supernovae (SNe). The discussion presented here places emphasis on how observations, and the modelling of observations, have constrained ...
  • Farioli, Andrea; Straif, Kurt; Brandi, Giovanni; Curti, Stefania; Kjaerheim, Kristina; Martinsen, Jan Ivar; Sparen, Pär; Tryggvadottir, Laufey; Weiderpass, Elisabete; Biasco, Guido; Violante, Francesco Saverio; Mattioli, Stefano; Pukkala, Eero (BMJ, 2017-11-13)
    Objectives To assess the association between occupational exposure to asbestos and the risk of cholangiocarcinoma (CC). Methods We conducted a case–control study nested in the Nordic Occupational Cancer (NOCCA) cohort. We studied 1458 intrahepatic ...

    Background: ADHD is a common neurodevelopmental disorder that persists into adulthood. Its symptoms cause impairments in a number of social domains, one of which is employment. We wish to produce a consensus statement on how ADHD affects employment. Methods: ...
  • Vilmundardóttir, Olga Kolbrún; Sigurmundsson, Friðþór Sófus; Pedersen, Gro; Belart, Joaquín M. C.; Kizel, Fadi; Falco, Nicola; Benediktsson, Jon Atli; Gísladóttir, Guðrún (SAGE Publications, 2018-10-07)
    Lava flows pose a hazard in volcanic environments and reset ecosystem development. A succession of dated lava flows provides the possibility to estimate the direction and rates of ecosystem development and can be used to predict future development. We ...
  • Sigurgeirsdóttir, Sigurbjörg (Stofnun stjórnsýslufræða og stjórnmála við Háskóla Íslands, 2015)
    Þessi rannsókn snýst um hugmyndir og hagsmuni í heilbrigðisþjónustu á Íslandi. Rannsóknin lýsir því hvernig annars vegar hugmyndin um heilsugæsluna sem fyrsta viðkomustað sjúklinga í heilbrigðiskerfinu og hugmyndin um það að sjúklingar eigi að hafa ...
  • Bergsteinsson, Jason Már; Edvardsson, Ingi Runar; Óskarsson, Guðmundur Kristján (Félagsfræðingafélags Íslands, 2017)
    Markmið greinarinnar er að kanna umfang og eðli ofmenntunar á íslenskum vinnumarkaði. Úrtak rannsóknarinnar byggðist á tilviljunarúrtaki úr þjóðská sem Þjóðmálakönnun Félagsvísindastofnunar Háskóla Íslands framkvæmdi 9. mars til 9. apríl 2016. Könnunin ...
  • Tarsi, Matteo (Háskólinn á Akureyri, 2014)
    This article focuses on the Icelandic lexis' history by analysing the loanwords of Latin origin in it. The corpus examined traverses the history of Icelandic through its whole. The borrowings are divided into four main waves, ...
  • Koziel, Slawomir; Bekasiewicz, Adrian (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2016-12-13)
    Re-design of a given antenna structure for various substrates is a practically important issue yet non trivial, particularly for wideband and ultra-wideband antennas. In this work, a technique for expedited redesign of ultra-wideband antennas for various ...
  • Hannesdottir, Holmfridur; Gudmundsson, Jon Tomas (IOP Publishing, 2017-03-27)
    We apply particle-in-cell simulations with Monte Carlo collisions to study the influence of the singlet metastable states on the ion energy distribution in single and dual frequency capacitively coupled oxygen discharges. For this purpose, the ...
  • Helgadottir, Asdis; Guittet, Arthur; Gibou, Frédéric (Hindawi Limited, 2018-10-17)
    We analyze the accuracy of two numerical methods for the variable coefficient Poisson equation with discontinuities at an irregular interface. Solving the Poisson equation with discontinuities at an irregular interface is an essential part of solving ...
  • Tarsi, Matteo (Stofnun Árna Magnússonar í íslenskum fræðum, 2016)
    This article deals with the origin of the oldest core of borrowed Christian terminology still extant in Icelandic, i.e. those words which were introduced in Old Norse in the period ranging from the first evangelical missions in Scandinavia (9th c.) to ...
  • Benediktsson, Jon Atli; Cavallaro, Gabriele; Riedel, Morris; Richerzhagen, Matthias; Plaza, Antonio (IEEE, 2015)
    Owing to the recent development of sensor resolutions onboard different Earth observation platforms, remote sensing is an important source of information for mapping and monitoring natural and man-made land covers. Of particular importance is the ...
