Emotional Inertia and Interpersonal Adaptation in Intimate Relationships

Luginbühl, Tamara ; Schöbi, Dominik (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2018.

Emotions are not static but fluctuate over time as a function of contextual changes (Kuppens, Allen, & Sheeber, 2010). This temporal feature of emotions is considered in the concept of emotional inertia, which reflects the degree to which emotions are resistant to change over time (Kuppens et al., 2010). Several studies suggest an association between emotional inertia and psychological...

Modelling protein-protein interactions to elucidate molecular mechanisms behind neurodegenerative diseases

Grasso, Gianvito ; Krause, Rolf (Dir.) ; Danani, Andrea (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2018 ; 2018INFO017.

The worldwide significant increase in life expectancy has recently drawn the attention of the scientific community to neurodegenerative pathologies of the elderly population. These neurodegenerative disorders arise from the abnormal protein aggregation in the nervous tissue leading to intracellular inclusions or extracellular aggregates in specific brain areas. A feasible strategy to prevent...

The current extinction and climate change crises pressure us to predict population dynamics with ever‐greater accuracy. Although predictions rest on the well‐advanced theory of age‐structured populations, two key issues remain poorly explored. Specifically, how the age‐dependency in demographic rates and the year‐to‐year interactions between survival and fecundity affect...

Exposing concurrency failures : a comprehensive survey of the state of the art and a novel approach to reproduce field failures

Bianchi, Francesco Adalberto ; Pezzè, Mauro (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2018 ; 2018INFO015.

With the rapid advance of multi-core and distributed architectures, concurrent systems are becoming more and more popular. Concurrent systems are extremely hard to develop and validate, as their overall behavior depends on the non-deterministic interleaving of the execution flows that comprise the system. Wrong and unexpected interleavings may lead to concurrency faults that are extremely...

Reification as the key to augmenting software development : an object is worth a thousand words

Dal Sasso, Tommaso ; Lanza, Michele (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2018 ; 2018INFO014.

Software development has become more and more pervasive, with influence in almost every human activity. To be able to fit in so many different scenarios and constantly implement new features, software developers adopted methodologies with tight development cycles, sometimes with more than one release per day. With the constant growth of modern software projects and the consequent expansion...

Should Swiss pension funds implement long-­ term financial derivative instruments to reduce their longevity risk?

Turin, Vincent ; Courbage, Christophe (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2018 ; TDIBM 47.

During the last decades, the Swiss population has been experiencing an increase in life expectancy. Switzerland has seen a change in the structure of its population. In 1900, the proportion of people aged below 20 years old was 40.7% of the total Swiss population, whereas in 2016, this percentage was of 20.1%. In contrast, the proportion of people aged over 60 years old has increased...

Study protocol: psychological and physiological consequences of exposure to mass media in young women - an experimental cross-sectional and longitudinal study and the role of moderators

Munsch, Simone

In: BMC Psychology, 2014, vol. 2, no. 37, p. 1-13

BACKGROUND: Repeated exposure to thin beauty ideals is part of the daily routine. Exposure to thin ideals via mass media plays an important role in the development and maintenance of eating disorders (EDs), low self-esteem, depressive or anxious feelings in young females. It is important to elucidate the circumstances under which exposure to thin ideals develops its detrimental impact and to...

Saudi Arabia : too big to hedge?

Jusufi, Ariana ; Piller, Robert (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2018 ; TDIBM 38.

Oil prices reached low levels in 2016. As a consequence, many countries dependent on oil revenues experienced significant budget deficits. Saudi Arabia, for which oil revenue accounts for more than 80% of national income, chose to implement a fiscal reform to reduce its oil dependency. Although fiscal reform is a good strategy for the long run, the solution does not take into account price risk;...
