Preface The aim of this dissertation is to describe more realistic models for financial assets based on generalized hyperbolic (GH) distributions and their subclasses. Generalized hyperbolic distributions were introduced by Barndorff-Nielsen (1977), and stochastic processes based on these distributions were first applied by Eberlein and Keller (1995) in(More)
Telomere length, a highly heritable trait, is longer in offspring of older fathers. This perplexing feature has been attributed to the longer telomeres in sperm of older men and it might be an 'epigenetic' mechanism through which paternal age plays a role in telomere length regulation in humans. Based on two independent (discovery and replication) twin(More)
The aim of the study was to determine and validate prerequisites for applying a cognitive (judgement) bias approach to assessing welfare in farmed mink (Neovison vison). We investigated discrimination ability and associative learning ability using auditory cues. The mink (n=15 females) were divided into two groups (High, n=8; Low, n=7, representing the(More)
The aim of this experiment was to investigate pigs' preferences for rooting materials. Eighteen materials were allocated to six categories each of which consisted of three similar materials based on characteristics such as structure, size of particles, complexity, destructibility and digestibility. Twelve pairs of pigs chose among the three materials of(More)
Background: Quantitative measurement procedures need to be accurate and precise to justify their clinical use. Precision reflects deviation of groups of measurement from another, often expressed as proportions of agreement, standard errors of measurement, coefficients of variation, or the Bland-Altman plot. We suggest variance component analysis (VCA) to(More)
Although the region of interest in high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography, defined based on the manufacturer's protocol for in vivo scanning, provides consistency and is practically convenient, it does not take into account possible variation in morphology in the regions adjacent to the measurement site. This study aimed at compare the(More)
For linear mixed models a frequent task is to test for the reduction of a model by the removal of some fixed effect. For models fitted with the lmer function of the R package lme4 (Bates et al., 2011) such tests can be performed by via a maximum likelihood ratio test and the approximate χ 2 distribution of the test statistic. This approximation may yield(More)
Technical Reports: This series aims to cover the publication of pre-prints and research papers in an advanced stage of elaboration. The material published should have some original content, but reviews are also suitable. There are, in principle, no size limitations and extended versions with full details that are refer-enced later in the final publication(More)
