  • Decision-making styles and trust across farmers and bankers: Global survey results 

    Svenson, Wolf Jost Frithiof Erten-Alexa (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-15)
    Understanding in which contexts professionals come to trust their gut is critical both for human relations as well as for human–computer interaction. A prominent viewpoint promotes a deliberate trust development approach for professionals in all industries and at all levels of organizations (people use good thinking). The use of intuition has also been related to trust development. There is little ...

    Strmic Palinkas, Sabina; Fjellet, Trond; Stubseid, Håvard Hallås; Liu, Xuan; Spangenberg, Jorge E.; Čobić, Andrea; Pedersen, Rolf B. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-04-07)
    The Sunnhordland area in SW Norway hosts more than 100 known mineral occurrences, mostly of volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) and orogeny Au types. The VMS mineralization is hosted by plutonic, volcanic and sedimentary lithologies of the Lower Ordovician ophiolitic complexes. This study presents new trace element and δ <sup>34</sup>S data from VMS deposits hosted by gabbro and basalt of the ...
  • Barnehagelærere med ny identitet. Ikke lenger profesjonsnomader? 

    Skauge, Tom Roger; Ødegaard, Elin Eriksen; Kvitastein, Olav Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2023-08-15)
    When professionals leave the profession for which they were trained, it is reasonable to assume that society has a challenge. Important theoretical and practical expertise and knowledge leave the sector. Often, escape routes from a profession are also a signal that those who are professionally educated are not satisfied with the working conditions at their workplace - a signal of an identity crisis ...

    Risvoll, Hilde Monica; Risør, Torstein; Halvorsen, Kjell Hermann; Waaseth, Marit; Stub, Trine; Musial, Frauke (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-11-20)
    Objective - The use of dietary supplements (DS) may cause harm through direct and indirect effects. Patients with dementia may be particularly vulnerable. This study aims to explore general practitioners’ (GPs’) experiences with DS use by these patients, the GPs perceived responsibilities, obstacles in taking on this responsibility, their attitudes toward DS, and suggestions for improvements to ...
  • Data-driven approaches for identifying hyperparameters in multi-step retrosynthesis 

    Westerlund, Annie M.; Barge, Bente Sirin; Mervin, Lewis; Genheden, Samuel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-09-07)
    The multi-step retrosynthesis problem can be solved by a search algorithm, such as Monte Carlo tree search (MCTS). The performance of multistep retrosynthesis, as measured by a trade-off in search time and route solvability, therefore depends on the hyperparameters of the search algorithm. In this paper, we demonstrated the effect of three MCTS hyperparameters (number of iterations, tree depth, and ...

    Josefsen, Eva; Broderstad, Else Grete; Hernes, Hans-Kristian (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-03-21)
    Den norske sannhets- og forsoningskommisjonens rapport, som ble lagt fram i 2023, skal danne grunnlag for et oppgjør med statens fornorskningspolitikk mot samer, kvener og skogfinner. Hvordan svarer rapporten på dette oppdraget?
  • Multiscaling Differential Contraction Integral Method for Inverse Scattering Problems with Inhomogeneous Media 

    Zhong, Yu; Zardi, Francesco; Salucci, Marco; Oliveri, Giacomo; Massa, Andrea (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-03-10)
    Practical applications of microwave imaging often require the solution of inverse scattering problems with inhomogeneous backgrounds. Toward this end, a novel inversion strategy, which combines the multiscaling (MS) regularization scheme and the difference contraction integral equation (DCIE) formulation, is proposed. Such an integrated approach mitigates the nonlinearity and the ill-posedness of ...
  • Learning-Assisted Inversion for Solving Nonlinear Inverse Scattering Problem 

    Xu, Kuiwen; Qian, Zemin; Zhong, Yu; Su, Jiangtao; Gao, Haijun; Li, Wenjun (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-12-21)
    Solving inverse scattering problems (ISPs) is challenging because of its intrinsic ill-posedness and the nonlinearity. When dealing with highly nonlinear ISPs, i.e., those scatterers with high contrast and/or electrically large size, the traditional iterative nonlinear inversion methods converge slowly and take lots of computation time, even maybe trapped into local wrong solution. To alleviate the ...
  • Small collections remembered: Sámi material culture and community-based digitization at the Smithsonian Institution 

    Magnani, Matthew Walker; Porsanger, Jelena; Laiti, Sami; Magnani, Natalia; Olli, Anne May; Rauhala, Paula; Valkeapää, Henrik Samuel; Hollinger, Eric (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-09-18)
    Of the 158 million things housed by the Smithsonian Institution, about 56 objects originate from Sámi communities. By all accounts a small group of objects—even by the standards of the Arctic collections at the Institution—it may be easily overlooked or dismissed as insignificant, based on entrenched ideologies about idealized collections. Presenting a community-based methodology for the engagement ...
  • High rifampicin peak plasma concentrations accelerate the slow phase of bacterial decline in tuberculosis patients: Evidence for heteroresistance 

    Martinecz, Antal; Boeree, Martin J.; Diacon, Andreas H.; Dawson, Rodney; Hemez, Colin; Arnoutse, Rob; Abel zur Wiesch, Pia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-04-13)
    Background - Antibiotic treatments are often associated with a late slowdown in bacterial killing. This separates the killing of bacteria into at least two distinct phases: a quick phase followed by a slower phase, the latter of which is linked to treatment success. Current mechanistic explanations for the in vitro slowdown are either antibiotic persistence or heteroresistance. Persistence is defined ...
  • Effects of positive end-expiratory pressure on cerebral hemodynamics in acute brain injury patients 

    Giardina, Alberto; Cardim, Danilo; Ciliberti, Pietro; Battaglini, Denise; Ball, Lorenzo; Kasprowicz, Magdalena; Beqiri, Erta; Smielewski, Peter; Czosnyka, M.; Frisvold, Shirin Kordasti; Grosnik, Matjaz; Pelosi, P.; Robba, Chiara (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-05-02)
    Background: Cerebral autoregulation is the mechanism that allows to maintain the stability of cerebral blood flow despite changes in cerebral perfusion pressure. Maneuvers which increase intrathoracic pressure, such as the application of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP), have been always challenged in brain injured patients for the risk of increasing intracranial pressure (ICP) and altering ...
  • Quantum cluster equilibrium prediction of liquid ethanol 

    Malloum, Alhadji; Dhaouadi, Zoubeida; Conradie, Jeanet (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-07-17)
    Quantum cluster equilibrium theory (QCE) has been widely used to determine the properties of pure and binary mixture of liquids. The main limitation of the application of QCE is the exploration of different possible clusters formed by the solvent molecules. Therefore, in this study, we applied the QCE theory to predict liquid properties of ethanol after thorough exploration of the potential energy ...
  • Microsolvation of phenol in water: structures, hydration free energy and enthalpy 

    Malloum, Alhadji; Conradie, Jeanet (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-01-05)
    In this work, we have studied the microsolvation of phenol in water. We started by identifying initial configurations of phenol-water clusters using classical molecular dynamics. The configurations are optimised at the ωB97XD/aug-cc-pVDZ level of theory. To understand the interaction between phenol and the solvating water molecules, we performed a quantum theory of atoms in molecules (QTAIM) analysis. ...
