    (2013-09-06) Programming for Interactive Prototypes:
    Pijnappel, P.I.R.
    Goal In recent years, designers have increasingly started to make experiential prototypes containing electronics within the design process. This has been enabled by the rise of several microcontroller boards and software tools that decrease the complexity and cost of making such a prototype, allowing designers to construct these prototypes themselves. Although these tools have already drastically simplified the complexity of making such prototypes, it is still far from easy. It often requires su....................

    (2013-09-06) Modelling Power Plant Investment Behaviour: Three modular investment algorithms including hard and soft factors:
    Verweij, R.
    Simulation models become increasingly important in energy policy analysis. A literature review showed that there is demand for analysing the effect of multiple more realistic investment algorithms on the outcomes of energy policy analysis. The reason is that energy policy analysis could be incomplete without insight in the implications of the assumed investment behaviour in simulation models. The research question is: How is the effectiveness of the EU-ETS mechanism affected by diverse investmen....................

    Laban, V.C.
    Health Innovations, a venture capital firm in healthcare, is currently searching for a growth strategy to realize its corporate objectives. The search for this growth strategy was structured using the three growth directions of Ansoff (1957): product development, market development and diversification. In three steps the best direction was defined. First a situational analysis was done, identifying strengths and weaknesses. Then an external analysis was conducted to identify the most important ....................
    (2013-09-05) Re-figuring the Past. Interpreting Early Halaf Figurines from Tell Sabi Abyad (Syria)
    Arntz, Monique
    Figurines have been the subject of many archaeological studies and publications since the early 20th century. Studies in the past tended to be universalistic in nature and studied figurines mostly as art objects. In recent years there has been a move towards more contextualised research and a move away from universalistic explanations. However, there are still some shortcomings in figurine literature. Site publications often lack synthesis into a larger temporal and geographical framework. Also ....................
    (2013-09-05) Calendars, Rituals, and the Ethnographer
    Akker, Paul van den
    Perception of time is a constituting pillar in the Maya worldview. The Maya calendar system, which has been in use for thousands of years, however, is currently under threat by a variety of developments. This research master thesis focuses on the contemporary practices and beliefs related to the Maya calendar in Mexican and Guatemalan Maya communities by analyzing ethnographies published between 1889 and 1982. The aims are firstly to analyze the forms in which the traditional time perception ha....................
    (2013-09-05) Highrise energy storage core: Feasibility study for a hydro-electrical pumped energy storage system in a tall building:
    Oldenmenger, A.W.
    To counter the effects of carbon dioxide emissions and to become less dependent on energy imports, the electrical energy production in Europe is likely to make a significant shift towards renewable energy sources in the coming years. One of the major challenges in this transition process is to match the unpredictable and fluctuating supply of renewable energies, like wind and PV, with the demand. The solution to this problem comprises demand control (smart grids) and storage systems. The Highr....................

    (2013-09-04) Het grafelijk hof van Leiden in de Middeleeuwen
    Buitelaar, Marieke
    Rond 1200 stond in Leiden een hof van de graaf – een gebouwencomplex waar hij zich van tijd tot tijd ophield terwijl hij rondreisde door zijn gebied. Ook in andere steden in het graafschap Holland had hij hoven. Het is van Leiden echter niet duidelijk waarom hij zich daar vestigde. Met de hulp van drie hypothesen zal worden geprobeerd een antwoord te krijgen op de hoofdvraag. Het hof werd waarschijnlijk gesticht in of voor 1121, toen de voorloper van de huidige Pieterskerk als grafelijke kap....................
    (2013-09-04) The enigmatic "tekenu".An iconographical analysis of "tekenu" in tombs from the Old Kingdom to the Late Period
    Paraskeva, Katerina
    Abstract There is a series of aspects and elements at present, whose meaning still remains a mystery. One example of these elements is the “tekenu”, a representation that appears in several tombs in Theban region. It is a fact that tekenu is not fully understood due to the lack of ancient written sources about it. Additionally, the absence of a monographic study in order to investigate further the existence of this enigmatic depiction impedes the complete understanding of it. The representat....................

    Allison Ojeda, E.
    Vehicle to Grid (V2G) has been proposed as an alternative way to cope with the electricity demands of the future by integrating the electric and transportation system infrastructures. In this way, the vehicle fleet will be used as a mobile storage system, enabling a higher penetration level for renewable energy sources. As an example, with the current personal transportation fleet of Europe, 2,390 GW of electric capacity could be fed into the grid. Currently, V2G is in the Research and Developm....................

    Brand, Sanne Iara van den
    This research deals with discovering how Herod the Great put the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple Complex to use within the political situation of the Roman Empire and the relation of the Empire with the Jewish People. As client king for the Roman Empire in Judea it was his job to prepare the Judean people for future incorporation in the Roman Empire, for which he used the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple. To prove this was indeed the case I will investigate how Herod used the Hellenistic architec....................
    (2013-09-03) From Arcadia to Attica; the transition of the Pan cult during the fifth century BC
    Schepers, Ischa
    According to the myth Pan was a goat-footed god, born in Arcadia. The origin of his cult also lies in Arcadia, and was most likely established during the seventh century BC. Within Arcadian veneration he was deemed to have a pastoral nature, from which herding and hunting were the most important characteristics. An overarching aspect of fertility emphasized his importance for the reproduction of the flocks, the increase of wild game, and his part in initiation rites of the paides; the Arcadian y....................
