This handbook serves as a practical guide for students in institutions of higher learning with particular reference to their thesis and/or dissertation writing requirements. The simplistic approach in treating fundamental concepts and issues involved in a typical thesis and/or dissertation writing exercise, as adopted in the handbook, recommends it for not only students at different levels of higher institutions pursuits, but also their advising/supervising lecturers and indeed, the generality of knowledge seekers, especially in the area of research.
This research presents a set of visual approaches to visually represent the software development process and to support software project management by applying visual metaphors and visualization techniques. This thesis presents a set of innovative visualizations which offer an overall view of the project designed from the project manager’s perspective and leave out implementation details. First of all, a complete set of common metrics for project management are stated. Subsequently, the application of visualization techniques and real world metaphors to these metrics results in seven innovative visual proposals, each one with advantages and constraints which are properly evaluated. The results achieved are the graphical representations named Landscape, Japanese garden, Cliff, MetroMap, SoftMagnet, T-Cube and Project Clock.
The study focuses on the role and function of Israel in postmodern Jewish American literature. Hence, the work is based on the thesis that the existence of a Jewish State in the Middle East has developed into a key motive for postmodern Jewish American literature. The role of a Jewish State is examined in particular with regards to questions of Jewish American identity, as well as with regards to related questions of ambivalent attitudes and political positions towards Israel in general and Jewish American identity in particular. A comparison of Saul Bellow's 'To Jerusalem and Back' and Philip Roth's 'Operation Shylock: A Confession' provides a basis for the analysis of the above stated assumptions.

Namibia has launched a reform of great ambition which came to be captured in the Vision 2030 National Document. This thesis examines the implemenation of the new curriculum in Namibia with an emphasis on the new Junior Secondary Accounting Syllabus (JSAS) and its uptake by teachers.This was a small-scale study which sought to establish the meanings that teachers have constructed, that is how they make sense of the new JSAS both in their practice and in their pedagogical understandings.It hopes to add to the information about the importance of the teachers in the process of policy making and policy implementation. It also acknowledges the needs to take implementing agents'(teachers) sense-making into account in the process of educational change. This could help to bridge the gap between policy makers and policy implementers. The question is, can teachers simply understand and incoporate new ideas in their existing knowledge structures? In fact, Could they actually implement what is required from them as stated in the the revised JSAS? This thesis aimed to provide insight to these questions.
Consequences of modern human activities have led to the process of integration of archaeology into urban planning. This thesis examines the interrelationship of archaeology and planning. In the thesis, legal framework of conservation and archaeological investigation formed through many experiences within the international platforms was drawn in relation to the concept of urban development. The situation of archaeology in Turkey from its archaeological potentials to the laws procedures, institutions and problems was taken up. The need of community based approaches is underlined in order to achieve the requirements of conservation and development. The dilemmas of conservation and development studied through the examinations of Geyre and Aphrodisias. These areas, which are in negative interrelationship as a town in need of development and an archaeological asset that should be conserved, were the subjects of the research. The necessity of community planning was stated to provide consensus between conservation and development.
Most corporations conduct their business according to processes they developed over time. Making experiences the corporation will adapt their processes to reflect best practices. In software development the process of building programs might consist of phases like requirement analysis, implementation, tests and support. These need to be modeled and supported by a computer system. This diploma thesis will focus on long-term processes. In contrast to processes that complete in a matter of hours or less the former will most likely be adapted to customer requests, changes in circumstances or events that occur during execution. An introduction will illustrate problems and analyze available solutions. In a next step the concepts for a solution will be presented at an abstract level. The main part of this thesis contains an architectural overview of the Workflow Enactment Service. The implementation concepts enactment and adaptation will be presented. These include the model representing the business process, workflow elements, enactment, adaptation and persistence. In a conclusion the implemented prototype will be analyzed, problems and ideas for improvement stated.
Henry E. Allison presents an analytical and historical account of Kant`s transcendental deduction of the pure concepts of the understanding in the Critique of Pure Reason. He traces the line of thought that led Kant to a recognition of the need for transcendental deduction, and defends Kant`s 'non-contingency thesis' and 'non-separability thesis'.
This step by step guide looks at how to organise the content and structure of a thesis.

The increasing concerns about the environment brought the idea to propose and carry out an energy efficiency analysis of alternatively driven vehicles in this thesis. The very beginning of the thesis explains, why automotive industry has been searching for new alternatives to internal combustion engine based propulsion systems. The reasons for that are mostly environmentally based. The first goal of the thesis is to introduce, describe and analyse alternative fuels and alternative propulsion systems. Based on this research the main task of the thesis can be conducted. Designing a model calculating energy consumption of selected alternative propulsion systems and further comparison of them is the cardinal point of the thesis. For the purposes of the modeling, alternative propulsion systems used in hybrid electric vehicles, fuel cell electric vehicle and battery electric vehicles are chosen. The modeling is carried out with the help of Matlab/Simulink software. In order to achieve comparable results, it is necessary to conduct the modeling and the calculation under standardized conditions. Therefore, real input data representing New European Driving Cycle together with actual parameters of the vehicle and proposed scenarios are comprehended in calculating models to reach valid findings.
In this thesis, we investigate in detail, certain important problems in cryptography and coding theory. In the first part of this thesis, we discuss the number field sieve and compare the two ways in which the sieving step is implemented - one method using the line sieve and the other using the lattice sieve. We discuss why the lattice sieve performs better than the line sieve in the presence of large primes - this has not been attempted before. In the second part of this thesis, we design low-correlation CDMA sequences over the Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) alphabet. The sequences proposed in this thesis have the lowest value of the maximum correlation parameter as compared to any other family in the literature. In the third part of this thesis, we design large families of optimal two-dimensional optical orthogonal codes for optical CDMA. The size of these codes is larger than any other code in the literature.
The aim of this thesis is to present the application of fullerene C60 thin film as a novel coating material for Si film anodes of lithium ion secondary batteries. Fullerene C60 film is prepared and synthesized by plasma assisted thermal evaporation technique. The thesis firstly focuses on the structural and electrochemical characteristics of C60 coated Si anodes. The estimation of Li-ion diffusion coefficients in the coated Si anodes is the second topic investigated. Finally, the thesis discusses about the effect of coating layer thickness especially on the electrochemical characteristics of C60 coated Si anodes.
The thesis outlines the course of Victorian nonsense as a playful form of children’s literature since Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll and its resurgence in the modernist novel as a dialogic form of writing that calls attention to the physicality of the text: its texture, sound, shape and colour. It traces the manner in which literary nonsense and its corresponding irrationality and chaos have been addressed. The thesis aims to widen the critical understanding of literary nonsense and to draw the topic away from the category of juvenile literature. Although the thesis pays particular attention to nonsense language and narrative fiction, my discussion of Victorian nonsense includes other categories of nonsense: portraits, caricatures, rhymes, alphabets, recipes and cookery.
This thesis reports on a numerical study of a round, isothermal turbulent jet of incompressible fluid, impinging normally on a flat wall at a different temperature. The main body of the thesis deals with LES studies using the dynamic subgrid-scale model, of flow and heat transfer in a round impinging jet at Re=20000 and orifice-to-plate distance h/D=2. The LES were performed using the in-house unstructured finite-volume computational code T-FlowS.The second focus of the thesis was the study of the feasibility of combining the LES and RANS approaches into a hybrid method. The goal was to provide the time resolved threedimensional solutions of the velocity and temperature field (though associated with the larger turbulence scales only) while using the mesh size typical of that used in off-wall LES or in the RANS computation.
This thesis explores the reasons behind why we dress the way we do. Is it to impress our peers, or it is to make a political statement? It investigates the social implications of clothing and how it is used to link you with your socio-economic background. Our clothes are our first impression and this thesis discusses which social persona's people want to portray through their clothing. Through out the thesis general theory is examined and addressed, followed by examples of various brands discussing what demographic wears them and why. There is then a detailed case study which takes a specific Irish sub culture and researches the process behind their clothing choices particularly which brands they buy. Overall it is a in-depth study into the importance of fashion as a form of socio-economic indication.
The Energy Charter Treaty is the first binding multilateral agreement covering the promotion and protection of foreign investment. Energy Charter Treaty applies only to economic activities in the energy sector. This thesis focuses on uniqueness of the Energy Charter Treaty’s investment regime in investor-state disputes. The thesis provides an overview from an international law perspective of such important features of the Energy Charter Treaty as the provisional application of the treaty, the ‘denial of benefits’ clause and the definition of investment. The thesis also analyzes Energy Charter Treaty arbitration cases in order to find whether there exists a consistent practice on crucial jurisdictional questions. An extensive overview was provided regarding Yukos v Russian Federation, Kardassopoulos v. Georgia and Plama v. Bulgaria cases.
This is book is based on my master thesis in Sustainability Science and Environmental Studies at Lund University in 2011. It discusses the challenges the decision-makers in Lithuania had in the early 2000’s whether to shut down Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant or keep it operating. The analysis of this topic is based on holistic approach including socio-economic, environmental and political aspects. Since many nuclear power plants are ageing and many countries around the world claims they want to shut down their nuclear power plants, this thesis gives some insights about some challenges the policy-makers should expect to handle. This thesis is useful for decision-makers, NGOs, nuclear industry professionals, and also for radiation protection and nuclear safety professionals.
The purpose of this thesis is to investigate some aspects of fuzzification of semigroups, partially ordered semigroups and gamma semigroups. In this thesis the concepts of fuzzy subsemigroups, fuzzy bi-ideals, fuzzy (1,2)-ideals, fuzzy quasi ideals, fuzzy ideals, fuzzy interior ideals, fuzzy prime and fuzzy semiprime ideals, cartesian product of fuzzy ideals, fuzzy prime ideals and fuzzy semiprime ideals, fuzzy ideal extensions in a gamma semigrouop have been introduced. These concepts are also studied via operator semigroups of a gamma semigroup. In this thesis some results of gamma semigroups have been rediscovered in terms of fuzzy subsets. Here some important characterization theorems in terms of fuzzy subsets have been obtained. It is important to note here that in the study of gamma semigroups in terms of fuzzy subsets operator semigroups play a crucial role.
What is the success factors when establishing a TechCenter? This thesis describes the possible success factors when establishing a TechCenter within a IT-University in Goteborg, Sweden. This thesis also describes a possible definition of what a TechCenter is, its purpose as a department in an organization and introduces the term TechCenter as a neologism. The success factors are established through analysis of a number of interviews and also through the use of questionnaires. The empirical data are gathered from people important to the TechCenter project at the IT-University in Goteborg, including the faculty, academic initiatives from private corporations and staff from organizations similar to the TechCenter project. This thesis can also be used as inspiration to other universities planning to create a TechCenter.
Over one billion people in the world today live in slums. This UN estimation suggests that slums continue to be part of the global production of the built environment, regardless of the countless efforts to eradicate them. Slums, squatters’ settlements, and informal settlements are words frequently used interchangeably to describe a ‘non-state’ approach to settlements development, which characterises the contemporary urban Third World. The urban kampung (informal settlement) of Indonesia exemplify such phenomenon. This thesis investigates kampung development with particular reference to kampung in the city of Yogyakarta. A primary proposition of the thesis is that tenure acquisition in this mode of development is a speculative endeavour, through which the buildings (built forms) function as mediators of tenure negotiation. The thesis argues that the continuity and change of built forms can signify tenure security/insecurity of kampung dwellers.
