  • User-centred Design of a Mobile Application for Chronic Pain Management 

    Smaradottir, Berglind; Fagerlund, Asbjørn Johansen; Bellika, Johan Gustav (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020)
    Chronic pain patients constitute a large and heterogeneous patient group and it is important to build tools and methods that can identify efficient treatment options for each individual patient. It is estimated that 20-30% of the population has suffered from chronic pain and this imposes enormous costs on society and the national welfare programs. The research project Chronic Pain addresses the ...

  • The Multivariate Normal Inverse Gaussian distribution: EM-estimation and analysis of synthetic aperture sonar data 

    Øigård, Tor Arne; Hanssen, Alfred; Hansen, Roy Edgar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2004-09)
    The heavy-tailed Multivariate Normal Inverse Gaussian (MNIG) distribution is a recent variance-mean mixture of a multivariate Gaussian with a univariate inverse Gaussian distribution. Due to the complexity of the likelihood function, parameter estimation by direct maximization is exceedingly difficult. To overcome this problem, we propose a fast and accurate multivariate ExpectationMaximization (EM) ...

  • Biotransformation of chemically dispersed diesel at sub-zero temperatures using artificial brines 

    Dang, Nga Phuong; Petrich, Chris; O'Sadnick, Megan; Toske, Lisa (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2020-01-01)
    The biotransformation of hydrocarbon compounds in seawater at sub-zero temperature has gained research interest in recent years with the most focus placed on temperatures around 0°C. In this study, biotransformation of dispersed diesel at sub-zero temperatures (−2°C to −6°C) in artificial brines, prepared by adding Instant Ocean salt to natural seawater to increase salinity, is examined. The oil was ...

  • Benchmarking through Performance Indicators for Norwegian Academic Libraries 

    Landøy, Ane; Raade, Johanne; Bøhn, Harald (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015)
    How can leadership and strategic planning in academic libraries be based on statistical evidence - evidence based leadership? In this paper, the authors present how the National Library of Norway has led the way in developing indicators for the public and the academic libraries. These indicators may be used either longitudinally or for benchmarking within or between libraries. The authors will also ...
  • Numerical Investigation of the Required Quantity of Inert Gas Agents in Fire Suppression Systems 

    Hu, Xiaoqin; Kraaijeveld, Arjen; Log, Torgrim (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-05-16)
    Inert gas agents have the potential to be widely used in fire suppression systems due to health and safety concerns associated with active chemicals. To suppress fire while minimizing hypoxic effects in an occupied area, the discharge quantity of inert gas agents should be carefully designed to dilute the oxygen concentration to a specific threshold level. In this study, the general expressions ...
  • Bilingualism as a gradient measure modulates functional connectivity of language and control networks 

    Sulpizio, Simone; Del Maschio, Nicola; Del Mauro, Gianpaolo; Fedeli, Davide; Abutalebi, Jubin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-22)
    There is currently no agreement on which factor modulates most effectively and enduringly brain plasticity in bilingual individuals. Grouping heterogeneous linguistic profiles under a dichotomous condition (bilingualism versus monolingualism) may obscure critical aspects of language experience underlying neural changes, thus leading to variable and often conflicting findings. In the present study, ...
