Bases properties of sequences of dilated periodic functions in Banach and Hilbert spaces
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201802)The main aim of the thesis is to continue the investigations as to which extent the family of dilations Ef := {fn}n, where f : R→C and fn(·) := f(n·) for all n ∈N, forms a basis of Lr(0,1) for r ∈ (1,∞). We introduce an ... 
Bayesian analysis of default and credit migration : latent factor models for event count and timetoevent data
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computing Sciences, 201407)This thesis develops Bayesian models to explain credit default and migration risk. Credit risk models used in practice are based on an assumption of conditionally independent events given a realization of systematic risk ... 
Bayesian stochastic mortality modelling under serially correlated local effects
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201501)The vast majority of stochastic mortality models in the academic literature are intended to explain the dynamics underpinning the process by a combination of age, period and cohort e ects. In principle, the more such e ...

Categorical structures on bundle gerbes and higher geometric prequantisation
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics and Computer Sciences, 201709)We present a construction of a 2Hilbert space of sections of a bundle gerbe, a suitable candidate for a prequantum 2Hilbert space in higher geometric quantisation. We start by briefly recalling the construction of the ...

Combining evolutionary algorithms and agentbased simulation for the development of urbanisation policies
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201707)Urbanplanning authorities continually face the problem of optimising the allocation of green space over time in developing urban environments. To help in these decisionmaking processes, this thesis provides an empirical ...
