• Solar resource assessment at high latitude regions 

    Babar, Bilal (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2019-03-22)
    There has been a growing interest in accurately estimating surface solar radiation at high latitude locations. From a Scandinavian perspective, the installed solar photovoltaic share is increasing, primarily because of the declining cost of these systems, the introduction of various economic incentives and societal push to generate one’s own clean power. In the coming years, it is anticipated that ...
  • Monitoring of Marine Ice and its Thickness for Ship Anti-/De-icing - Experimental and Analytical Study using Infrared Thermography 

    Rashid, Taimur (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2019-03-01)
    Ships operating in a cold climate face many challenges. There are several associated risks such as safety concerns, down time, energy consumption and limited resources. Amongst the key challenges, ship ice accretion is significant for cold climate operations. Exposing superstructures to the marine icing phenomenon can affect the ship’s operations, risking the safety of humans and machines. In this ...
  • The nonlinear nature of biology 

    Måløy, Marthe (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2019-03-27)
    In this thesis, we explore the stability and the breakdown of stability of biological systems. The main examples are the blood system and invasion of cancer. However, the models presented in the thesis apply to several other examples. Biological systems are characterised by both competition and cooperation. Cooperation is based on an unsolvable dilemma: Even though mutual cooperation leads to ...
  • ConnNet: A Long-Range Relation-Aware Pixel-Connectivity Network for Salient Segmentation 

    Kampffmeyer, Michael C.; Dong, Nanqing; Liang, Xiaodan; Zhang, Yujia; Xing, Eric P. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-14)
    Salient segmentation aims to segment out attention-grabbing regions, a critical yet challenging task and the foundation of many high-level computer vision applications. It requires semantic-aware grouping of pixels into salient regions and benefits from the utilization of global multi-scale contexts to achieve good local reasoning. Previous works often address it as two-class segmentation problems ...
  • The EOS Formulation for Linear and Nonlinear Transient Scattering Problems 

    Lin, Aihua (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2019-03-29)
    This thesis developed the EOS formulations of solving nonlinear transient scatterings, both for 1D case and 3D Maxwell's equations. This method can be accurately and stably implemented using one particular choice of numerical scheme for the inside of the objects and for the required integral representations of the boundary values. For a stable numerical solution, the time step needs to be confined ...
