  • Runólfsson, Birgir Þór (George Mason University, 1991)
    My task is to come up with a theory of cooperation and, then, apply that theory to a particular historical case. The historical case I discuss Is the rise and decline of social order in medieval Iceland; the so-called Commonwealth period. The Commonwealth ...
  • Árnason, Guðmundur Rúnar (London School of Economics, 1991)
    The thesis is a study of political communications in a general election campaign in Iceland in 1987. The theoretical background is the so-called agenda-setting approach to communication. A multimethodological approach was used: first, a content analysis ...
  • Bjarnason, Ingi Þorleifur; Cowie, Patience; Anders, Mark H.; Seeber, Leonardo; Scholz, Christopher H. (The Seismological Society of America, 1993)
    We have mapped in detail surface ruptures of the 1912 magnitude 7.0 strike-slip earthquake in south Iceland. This earthquake ruptured fresh basalt flows that had covered the pre-existing fault. The observed style of surface fracturing closely matches ...
  • Bjarnason, Ingi Þorleifur; Wolfe, Cecily J.; Solomon, Sean C.; Guðmundsson, Gunnar (Wiley-Blackwell, 1996-03-01)
    We present results from the first stage of the ICEMELT broadband seismometer experiment designed to determine upper mantle structure beneath Iceland, a hotspot located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Relative delays of teleseismic body waves across Iceland ...
  • Júlíusson, Árni Daníel (Københavns Universitet, 1997)
    Denne afhandling handler om det islandske bondesamfund mellem pest og reformation, d.v.s. den anden pest i 1494 og reformationen 1550. For at sætte perspektiv på dette samfunds struktur bruges forskningsresultater fra andre samfund i Nordvesteuropa ...
  • Saemundsson, Rognvaldur (Department of Industrial Dynamics, Chalmers University of Technology, 2003)
    The purpose of this thesis is to contribute to the study of the growth process in young technology-based firms. Two sets of issues are addressed in the thesis which are related to one another by using a conceptualization of Penrose's theory of the ...
  • Palsson, Arnar; Dodgson, James; Dworkin, Ian; Gibson, Greg (BioMed Central Ltd, 2005)
    Background Quantitative differences between individuals stem from a combination of genetic and environmental factors, with the heritable variation being shaped by evolutionary forces. Drosophila wing shape has emerged as an attractive system for ...

  • Ludwig, Michael Z; Palsson, Arnar; Alekseeva, Elena; Bergman, Casey M; Nathan, Janaki; Kreitman, Martin (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2005-03-15)
    Lack of knowledge about how regulatory regions evolve in relation to their structure–function may limit the utility of comparative sequence analysis in deciphering cis-regulatory sequences. To address this we applied reverse genetics to carry out a ...
  • Brynjarsdóttir, Eyja (Cornell University, 2007-08)
    This thesis explores the prospects of a distinction between subjective and objective properties in terms of how they are instantiated. While there are many ways in which the subjective can be separated from the objective, the one that interests ...
  • Baldursson, Friðrik Már; Hall, Axel (Viðskiptafræðideild og hagfræðideild Háskóla Íslands, viðskiptafræðideild Háskólans í Reykjavík og Seðlabanki Íslands., 2008)
    Inflation scenarios in forecasts of the Central Bank of Iceland (CBI) appear to converge to the inflation target (2.5%) in 8-9 quarters. We ask whether this is a coincidence or an inherent property of the CBI’s model, QMM. We formulate a sub-model, ...
  • Matthiasson, Thorolfur (Viðskiptafræðideild og hagfræðideild Háskóla Íslands, viðskiptafræðideild Háskólans í Reykjavík og Seðlabanki Íslands., 2008)
    Inflation was a growing problem during the 1960’s and the 1970’s in Iceland. Inflation represents a problem for any entity that tries to write up a budget, whether an individual, a company or a governmental entity. Many governmental entities do not ...
  • Eggertsson, Þráinn (Viðskiptafræðideild og hagfræðideild Háskóla Íslands, viðskiptafræðideild Háskólans í Reykjavík og Seðlabanki Íslands., 2008)
    Economists usually sing with the same nose when they answer questions about the role of technology in economic growth. They generally agree that sustained long-term growth in productivity, which began in Western Europe some two centuries ago, could not ...
  • Þórlindsson, Þórólfur (Viðskiptafræðideild og hagfræðideild Háskóla Íslands, viðskiptafræðideild Háskólans í Reykjavík og Seðlabanki Íslands., 2008)
    In this paper I argue that the academic culture, politics and the organization of the University of Iceland has been characterized by three cultures that I label as the literary, the civic, and the Humboldtian traditions. These traditions have mixed ...
  • Bjarnason, Ingi Þorleifur (Jöklarannsóknafélags Íslands og Jarðfræðafélags Íslands, 2008)
    Is Iceland a hotspot, with ridge-centered plume? In Iceland vigorous volcanism has built up a plateau 3.0 km higher than at a normal mid-ocean ridge with 3 to 4 times thicker crust than average oceanic crust. This volcanism can be associated with ...
  • Jónsson, Eyþór Ívar (Henley Management College/Brunel University, 2008-01)
    This thesis is an empirical investigation which focuses on the role of the board in small and medium sized enterprises in Iceland and the relationship between boards and organisational performance. The research will support the claim that there ...
  • Sigfusson, Bergur (University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, 2009)
    This thesis studied the volcanic and geothermal source of arsenic (As) and its fate in shallow ground waters and upon entering the ocean by means of experimental and field measurements combined with geochemical modeling. Arsenic enters the atmosphere ...
  • Bjarnason, Ingi Þorleifur; Schmeling, Harro (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2009-07)
    1-D models were calculated for the velocity of shear waves, polarized vertically (SV) and horizontally (SH) from dispersed Rayleigh and Love surface waves. These had been recorded in Iceland by the ICEMELT broad-band seismic network, with about half ...
  • Magnússon, Gylfi (Viðskiptafræðideild og hagfræðideild Háskóla Íslands, viðskiptafræðideild Háskólans í Reykjavík og Seðlabanki Íslands., 2010)
    Þessi grein fjallar um áhrif uppgangs íslenska útrásarhagkerfisins og hruns fjármálakerfisins í kjölfarið á ýmsa eignamarkaði og eigna- og tekjuskiptingu í landinu. Dregið er fram að áhrifin af eignaverðsbólunni eru um margt svipuð og í Ponzi-leik þar ...

    The concept of institutional logics, notably a choice between multiple logics, has  been offered as a foundation to theoretically explain heterogeneity of  organisation. The thesis focuses on how this heterogeneity of organisation is  possible thr ...
