  • Memon, Ahmed Shiraz (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, 2021-06)
    Distributed data and compute infrastructures aim to provide access to their data or compute services across disciplinary and geographical borders to their users for scientific research. The services are highly collaborative in nature yet independent ...
  • Amirfallah, Arsalan (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2021-06-15)
    Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women worldwide. It is also a highly heterogeneous disease that is characterized by an array of genetic rearrangements, including copy number alterations (CNA), translocations, inversions, ...
  • Bohr, Sebastian (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2021-07)
    The nature of dark matter (DM) as a particle is still an unresolved mystery in Physics. Therefore, a vast amount of competing particle models have been proposed. A promising category among these models are those that include relevant collisional damping ...
  • von Leesen, Gotje (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2021-06)
    Increasing water temperatures are predicted worldwide, with high amplitudes in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions exceeding predictions for other regions. An understanding how Atlantic cod (<i>Gadus morhua<i>) reacted to changing environmental conditions ...
  • Tryggvason, Heimir (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, 2021-06-15)
    The inspiration for this research is the natural graduation in stiffness of the biological ankle, over a wide range of ambulation tasks. The goal is to achieve variable stiffness in the force response of a prosthetic foot, utilizing the properties of ...
  • Malinauskaite, Laura (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2021-06)
    The thesis examines the dynamics of Arctic social-ecological systems (SES) that enable human wellbeing benefits through whale ecosystem services (ES). It does so through a review of relevant literature, construction of conceptual models, two primary ...
  • Saviolidis, Nína María (University of Iceland, School of Social Science, Faculty of Business Administration, 2021-06)
    The necessity of a sustainability transition i.e. large scale transformation to solve grand societal challenges at all levels is not debated. How to go about achieving these necessary transitions is the question. The role and contribution of economic ...
  • Eskafi, Majid (University of Iceland, 2021-06-30)
    Ports have always been evolving to satisfy the new or changing demands of stakeholders. In this unstable world, ports as dynamic systems are developed under a high degree of uncertainty. Furthermore, black-swan events, for instance, the financial crisis ...
  • Andrea, Proto (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2021)
    The aim of this work is to explore the role of electronegativity and the electron power absorption mechanism in electronegative capacitively coupled oxygen and chlorine discharges. The fundamental mechanisms underlying the electron heating and the ...
  • Patlolla, Venu Gopal Reddy (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, 2021-06)
    The oral mucosa is a convenient location where drug delivery systems could be employed to treat both local conditions as well as systemic delivery. It offers 4-4000 times more permeability relative to skin which makes it an ideal platform for delivering ...
  • Kirchhoff, Björn (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2021-05-28)
    The oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) is of central importance in the development of more efficient and durable fuel cells and computer simulations can be used to help explain and predict properties of ORR catalysts. In this thesis, various simulation methods ...
  • Sandberg, Ole (University of Iceland, School of Humanities, Faculty of History and Philosophy, 2021-05-23)
    Claims about human nature are unavoidable in political theory. A theory about which social arrangements are best for human beings must make some claims about the nature of the human beings - how they behave, what they desire, etc. These anthropological ...
  • Steinþórsdóttir, Guðrún (Háskóli Íslands, Hugvísindasvið, Íslensku- og menningardeild, 2020-01-24)
    Í þessari ritgerð er fjallað um valdar skáldsögur Vigdísar Grímsdóttur í því skyni að varpa nýju ljósi á einkenni þeirra og viðtökur. Eftirtaldar sögur eru til umfjöllunar: Stúlkan í skóginum (1992), Þögnin (2000), trílógían Þrenningin (Frá ljósi til ...
  • Rajagopal, Aruna (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2021-05)
    In this thesis, we explore the role of symmetries in hydrodynamics by studying certain properties of relativistic and non-relativistic fluids. In the first part of the thesis, we examine the theory of relativistic magnetohydrodynamics (Maxwell ...
  • Monger, Lindsey Jean (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2021-05)
    Notkun verndarhópa á virka hópa aminosýra í litlum peptíðum gefur tækifæri til að breyta girðieiginleikum viðkomandi peptíðs við málmjónir. Alkýlun á karboxýlhóp C-enda peptíðsins beinir girðingu málmjónarinnar í fjórgirta κ4[NH2,N,N,=O] komplexa. Með ...
