    Background and Aims: In Iceland, oncoplastic breast-conservation surgery has been performed since 2008. The aim of this population-based study was to assess and compare the efficacy and patient satisfaction of standard breast-conservation surgery with ...
  • Fenger, Paula; Harðarson, Gísli (GLSA, 2020)
    Germanic compounds often contain an element referred to as linkers, (L). These elements are homophonous with inflectional suffixes, like plural or case markers, but do not nec- essarily have the same meaning or function as the corresponding inflectional ...

    The multinational retailer, Costco, opened its first store in Iceland during spring 2017. Not only was the opening greatly anticipated but following the store opening, Costco became one of the key issues in the Icelandic media. Our analysis focuses ...
  • Sigurðardóttir, Anna Kristín (FrancoAngeli s.r.l, 2019)
    School buildings that are designed according to an open-plan approach have gained popularity in Iceland over the last two decades, both at the elementary and secondary level. Sigurðardóttir and Hjartarson (2011) claim this to be a radical shift in ...

    The shear wave velocity profile is of primary interest for geological characterization of soil sites and elucidation of near-surface structures. Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) is a seismic exploration method for determination of near-surface ...
  • Gudbrandsdottir, Ingunn Yr; Olafsdottir, Gudrun; Oddsson, Gudmundur V.; Stefánsson, Hlynur; Bogason, Sigurður G. (MDPI AG, 2021-01-08)
    Fairness issues within food systems are of increasing concern for policy makers and other stakeholders. Given the topicality and policy relevance of fairness within food systems, there is value in exploring the subject further. Simulation modelling has ...
  • EFSA Scientific Committee (2021-10-01)
    This Opinion assesses the biological relevance of the non-monotonic dose responses (NMDR) identified in a previous EFSA External Report (Beausoleil et al., 2016) produced under GP/EFSA/SCER/2014/01 and the follow-up probabilistic assessment (Chevillotte ...
  • Mulic, Aida; Arnadottir, Inga Bergmann; Jensdóttir, Þorbjörg; Kopperud, Simen E. (Hindawi Limited, 2018-11-01)
    Dental erosive wear (DEW) is common among children and adolescents, and a survey of Icelandic children showed that 30.7% of 15-year-olds were diagnosed with the condition. Objective. To gain knowledge about dental practitioners’ experiences, opinions, ...
  • Friesgaard, Kristian Dahl; Vist, Gunn Elisabeth; Hyldmo, Per Kristian; Raatiniemi, Lasse; Kurola, Jouni; Larsen, Robert; Kongstad, Poul; Magnusson, Vidar; Sandberg, Mårten; Rehn, Marius; Rognås, Leif (2022-03)
    Introduction: Acute pain is a frequent symptom among patients in the pre-hospital setting, and opioids are the most widely used class of drugs for the relief of pain in these patients. However, the evidence base for opioid use in this setting appears ...
  • Chestnov, I Y; Kavokin, A V; Yulin, A V (IOP Publishing, 2019-11-01)
    The phase and the frequency of an exciton polariton condensate excited by a nonresonant pump can be efficiently manipulated by an external coherent light. Being tuned close to the resonance with the condensate eigenfrequency, the external laser light ...
  • Dini, Kevin Tanguy Elian (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2018)
    Light matter coupling is a eld that has rapidly grown in the past decades to become one of the most important interdisciplinary research subject. It combines the phenomena of condensed matter and quantum optics and brings a new panel of unique e ects. ...
  • Morina, Skender; Dini, Kevin Tanguy Elian; Iorsh, Ivan; Shelykh, Ivan (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2018-02-12)
    We propose an experimentally friendly scheme for trapping quasi-relativistic electrons in graphene by an electromagnetic beam with circular polarization and a spatially inhomogeneous profile with an intensity dip. The trapping is achieved due to the ...
  • Iorsh, Ivan; Dini, Kevin Tanguy Elian; Kibis, Oleg; Shelykh, Ivan (American Physical Society (APS), 2017-10-11)
    It is shown theoretically that the renormalization of the electron energy spectrum of bilayer graphene with a strong high-frequency electromagnetic field (dressing field) results in the Lifshitz transition—the abrupt change in the topology of the Fermi ...
