|| (2012-01-01) From finite automata to power series and back again|
Christol's theorem links algebra in an unexpected way with a concept from computer sciences: a power series over a finite field is algebraic if and only if its coefficients are generated by a finite automaton. We examined the proof of Christol's theorem to find answers to the following two questions: Given a finite automaton with m states, what can we say about the algebraic degree of the corresponding power series? Conversely, given an algebraic power series of algebraic degree d, can we find a....................

Introduction: Due to an aging society and an increasing prevalence of obesity osteoarthritis is increasing, nowadays more often resulting in hip or knee replacement surgery (THA, TKA). Regular physical activity is important; it has proven to reduce morbidity and mortality and is associated with better prosthetic fixation. According to the international physical activity guidelines, a great part of the population is physically insufficiently active, especially the elderly. So far little ....................

Although crosslinguistic influence in voice onset time (VOT) is a widely studied phenomenon (Flege, 1987; Simon, 2009), few studies look at more than two languages. This study examines the production and perception of the word-initial stops /p, t, k, b, d, g/ in Dutch, English and German. The participant are German students who speak English as an L2 and have recently acquired a language with a different VOT contrast between voiced and voiceless stops, namely prevoiced Dutch. The aim of this stu....................
|| (2012-01-01) Minimal State and Canonical Realizations|
We have constructed four factorizations for four canonical realizations. For constructing these realizations we developed a Maple program. It turns out that the construction of the factorizations for the observer canonical realization and the observability canonical realization are rather straightforward. For the controller canonical realization and controllability canonical realization it is more difficult to construct the factorization. Although still possible, we have to use here our knowledg....................
|| (2012-01-01) Quantifying default risk in supplier portfolios|
Brincke ten, Robert H.W.
Defaulting suppliers form a great risk for many �rms. In this thesis we quantify the individual
risks and losses of supplier defaults using structural credit risk models, tailored to
the practitioner without subscribed database access. Supplier portfolios in the German
automotive industry are used both to explore how such an implementation works, and
how credit risk theory can be used to accommodate distinct characteristics of supplier
default risk. Modeling elements based on the largest ....................

parts at DAF Trucks N.V.|
Verlinden, Jeroen M.W.
This report describes the research carried out for the department Maintenance Material Planning at
DAF Trucks N.V. The task of this department is to ensure, at minimum costs, maximum availability
of spare parts used for both corrective as preventive maintenance for the entire production facility at
DAF Eindhoven. For that purpose there is a spare part inventory consisting of about 28.000 SKU’s,
with a total value of 17.3 million Euro. The inventory is controlled with help of the ERP softwa....................

A framework for �nding answers to business questions
using (process) data|
Spoel van der, Sjoerd
The research described in this paper is aimed at solving planning problems
associated with a new hospital declaration methodology called DOT. With this
methodology, that will become mandatory starting January 1st 2012, hospitals
will no longer be able to tell in advance how much they will receive for the care
they provide. A related problem is that hospitals do not know when delivered
care becomes declarable. Topicus Fincare wants to �nd a solution to both these

Homan, Thijs C.
People in the Netherlands are constantly on the move and this will grow in the following years. Between 2005 and 2020, the transport of people will increase by 20% and the increase of the transport of goods will be even higher, between 40% and 80% according to the Nota Mobiliteit (Ministerie van Verkeer & Waterstaat, 2006). To cope with this growth in mobility, the infrastructure in the Netherlands is being improved constantly.
The necessary adjustments on the existing road network have an impa....................

Yurchyshyn, L. (Lesya),
Twinning is one of the principal tools of Institution Building support for Pre-Accession Assistance Beneficiaries (EU candidates and EU potential candidates) and European Neighbourhood Policy Beneficiaries (e.g. Armenia, Azerbaijan, Egypt, Georgia, Jordan, Moldova, Morocco, Tunisia and Ukraine). In essence, Twinning affords a beneficiary country the opportunity to work together with an experienced Member State institution. To succeed, Twinning projects are only effective when and if the capacity....................

Karamanoglu, T. (Teoman),
This paper examines how concepts like Europe, Europeanness, the EU and values of the EU are represented in the Turkish shapers of public opinion. For this purpose, it includes two studies focusing on two mediums: school textbooks and newspapers. For the textbook analysis, the content of five textbooks, printed after 2000, and encompassing various courses, has been studied focusing on the usage of language, common textual patterns and photographs. For the newspaper analysis, four important dates ....................
