    This thesis is an exploration of two interactional processes, syntactic completion and otherextension. The aim of the study is to explore what – if anything – triggers the use of these phenomena, to scrutinise their form and their interactional ...
  • Frímannsdóttir, Ingibjörg B (ERJournal, 2015)
    Today’s students demand another approach to learning than the approach taken for students entering the school system 20 to 30 years ago. Modern students’ expectations and demands with regard to how and when they want to study are not the same as they ...

    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 ...
  • Pálsson, Frosti (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2017-09)
    In remote sensing, acquired optical images of high spectral resolution have usually a lower spatial resolution than images of lower spectral resolution. This is due to physical, cost and complexity constraints. To make the most of the available imagery, ...
  • Mantovan, R.; Fallica, R.; Mokhles Gerami, A.; Mølholt, T. E.; Wiemer, C.; Longo, M.; Gunnlaugsson, Haraldur; Johnston, K.; Masenda, H.; Naidoo, D.; Ncube, M.; Bharuth-Ram, K.; Fanciulli, M.; Gíslason, Hafliði Pétur; Langouche, G.; Olafsson, Sveinn; Weyer, G. (Springer Nature, 2017-08-15)
    The underlying mechanism driving the structural amorphous-to-crystalline transition in Group VI chalcogenides is still a matter of debate even in the simplest GeTe system. We exploit the extreme sensitivity of 57Fe emission Mössbauer spectroscopy, ...

    Background There are an increasing number of studies regarding genetic manipulation of cyanobacteria to produce commercially interesting compounds. The majority of these works study the expression and optimization of a selected heterologous pathway, ...
  • Puletti, Valentina Giangreco M.; Pourhasan, Razieh (Springer Nature, 2017-08)
    We compute holographic Rényi entropies for spherical entangling surfaces on the boundary while considering third order Lovelock gravity with negative cosmological constant in the bulk. Our study shows that third order Lovelock black holes with hyperbolic ...
