Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The evaluation results derived from the previous application section are presented in a condensed fashion and critically discussed within this section. The critical discussion is roughly structured along the previously presented research hypotheses. Following, the limitations identified during the evaluation and analysis including data pre-processing are highlighted. Within that section the implications of those limitations on the hypotheses and the research results are illustrated.
