    • Predicting Peak Prices in the Current Day-Ahead Market 

      Bremdal, Bernt Arild; Dadman, Shayan (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-06)
      The work presented has studied price developments in the day-ahead market. The statistical properties inherent in the time series constituting the day-to-day prices have been investigated. It is shown that these properties are radically different in 2022 than former years and resemble more chance like properties for which make predicting future peak prices especially hard. To overcome this, a space ...
    • Using Light Weight Electric Vehicles for V2G services in the Arctic 

      Dadman, Shayan; Bremdal, Bernt Arild (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-06)
      The proposed paper documents research carried out in the Smart Charge project. This project has investigated the use of electric snowmobiles for V2G purposes. Electric snowmobiles and ATVs have been introduced in remote areas in the Arctic to replace the fossil fuelled vehicles that dominate today. Electric versions of these can add extra loads to the local electricity grid. But they can also be ...
    • Wavelet neural networks versus wavelet-based naural networks 

      Dechevski / Dechevsky, Lubomir Todorov; Tangrand, Kristoffer Meyer (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
      This is the first paper in a sequence of studies including also [#!llhm2022!#] and [#!llhm2022_1!#] in which we introduce a new type of neural networks (NNs) – wavelet-based neural networks (WBNNs) – and study their properties and potential for applications. We begin this study with a comparison to the currently existing type of wavelet neural networks (WNNs) and show that WBNNs vastly outperform ...
    • Properties of sequence of linear functionals on BV with applications 

      Persson, Lars-Erik; Tsagareishvili, Vakhtang; Tutberidze, Giorgi (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-11-24)
      This paper is devoted to investigating the sequence of some linear functionals in the space BV of finite variation functions. We prove that under certain conditions this sequence is bounded. We also prove that this result is sharp. In particular, the obtained results can be used to study convergence of some general Fourier series. Moreover, the obtained conditions seem to be new and useful also for ...
    • Sharpness of some Hardy-type inequalities 

      Persson, Lars-Erik; Samko, Natasha Gabatsuyevna; Tephnadze, George (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-04)
      The current status concerning Hardy-type inequalities with sharp constants is presented and described in a unified convexity way. In particular, it is then natural to replace the Lebesgue measure dx with the Haar measure . There are also derived some new two-sided Hardy-type inequalities for monotone functions, where not only the two constants are sharp but also the involved function spaces are ...
    • Homogenization of Non-Autonomous Operators of Convolution Type in Periodic Media<sup>∗</sup> 

      Piatnitski, Andrei; Zhizhina, Elena (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-02-23)
      The paper deals with periodic homogenization problem for a para\-bo\-lic equation whose elliptic part is a convolution type operator with rapidly oscillating coefficients. It is assumed that the coefficients are rapidly oscillating periodic functions both in spatial and temporal variables and that the scaling is diffusive that is the scaling factor of the temporal variable is equal to the square of ...
    • Well-posedness of heat and wave equations generated by Rubin’s q-difference operator in Sobolev spaces 

      Shaimardan, Serikbol; Persson, Lars-Erik; Tokmagambetov, Niyaz (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
      In this paper, we investigate difference-differential operators of parabolic and hyperbolic types. Namely, we considern on-homogenous heat and wave equations for Rubin’s difference operator. Wellposedness results are obtained in appropriate Sobolev type spaces. In particular, we prove that the heat and wave equations generated by Rubin’s difference operator have unique solutions. We even show that ...
    • Refinements of Bennett type inequalities 

      Oguntuase, James A; Persson, Lars-Erik; Adeleke, EO (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
      In this paper we discuss, complement and improve some Bennett type inequalities. In particular,we prove a new refinement of a Bennett type inequality using super quadracity argument.
    • Some new multidimensional Cochran-Lee and Hardy type inequalities 

      Yimer, Markos Fisseha; Persson, Lars-Erik; Ayele, Tsegaye Gedif (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
      A multidimensional Cochran-Lee operator is introduced and investigated in the frame of Hardy-type inequalities with parameters 0<p⩽q<∞. Moreover, for the case p=q and power weights even the sharp constant is derived, thus generalizing the original Cochran-Lee inequality to a multidimensional setting. As applications both several known but also new inequalities are pointed out.

      Schuchter, Arthur; Petrarolo, Giovanni; Grießner, Dominik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2022)
      Over the decades medical analyses have grown in importance and practice possibilities. Digital operations like split-image procedures have become an integral part of modern medical practices and are still gaining momentum. Through the application of this technique medical computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging scans (MRI) can be converted to three-dimensional bodies. This paper ...
    • Path Planning for Perception-Driven Obstacle-Aided Snake Robot Locomotion 

      Hanssen, Christian; Transeth, Aksel Andreas; Sanfilippo, Filippo; Liljebäck, Pål; Stavdahl, Øyvind (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2020)
      Development of snake robots have been motivated by the ability of snakes to move efficiently in unstructured and cluttered environments. A snake robot has the potential to utilise obstacles for generating locomotion, in contrast to wheeled robots which are unable to move efficiently in rough terrain. In this paper, we propose a local path planning algorithm for snake robots based on obstacle-aided ...
    • Generalized Chessboard Structures Whose Effective Conductivities Are Integer Valued 

      Lukkassen, Dag; Meidell, Annette (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012-03-06)
      We consider generalized chessboard structures where the local conductivity takes two values 𝑎 and 𝑏 . All integer combinations of 𝑎 and 𝑏 which make the components of effective conductivity matrix integer valued are found. Moreover, we discuss the problem of estimating the effective conductivity matrix by using the finite-element method.

    • Blending spline surfaces over polygon mesh and their application to isogeometric analysis 

      Kravetc, Tatiana (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-09-11)
      Finite elements are allowed to be of a shape suitable for the specific problem. This choice defines thereafter the accuracy of the approximated solution. Moreover, flexible element shapes allow for the construction of an arbitrary domain topology. Polygon meshes are a common representation of the domain that cover any choice of the finite element shape. Being an alternative tool for modeling and ...
    • Some New Weak (Hp- Lp)-Type Inequality for Weighted Maximal Operators of Partial Sums of Walsh–Fourier Series 

      Baramidze, David; Persson, Lars-Erik; Singh, Harpal; Tephnadze, George (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-08-18)
      In this paper, we introduce some new weighted maximal operators of the partial sums of the Walsh–Fourier series. We prove that for some “optimal” weights these new operators indeed are bounded from the martingale Hardy space H<sub>p</sub>(G) to the Lebesgue space weak−L<sub>p</sub>(G), for 0<p<1. Moreover, we also prove sharpness of this result. As a consequence we obtain some new and well-known ...
