On English Speakers Ability to Communicate Emotion in Mandarin
(University of Toronto Press, 2014)The ability of Mandarin learners to express emotion in Mandarin has received little attention. This study examines how English L1 users express emotions in Mandarin and how this expression differs from that of Mandarin L1 ... 
On Online Banking Authentication for All: A Comparison of BankID Login Efficiency Using Smartphones Versus Code Generators
(Springer Verlag, 2019)Authentication is an essential component of any digital service. In Norway, such authentication is often relying on BankID using either mobile BankID or a code generator. This study set out to explore the efficiency of ... 
On optimizing firewall performance in dynamic networks by invoking a novel swapping windowbased paradigm
(Wiley, 20180724)Designing and implementing efﬁcient ﬁrewall strategies in the age of the Internet of Things (IoT) is far from trivial. This is because, as time proceeds, an increasing number of devices will be connected, accessed and ... 
On PBWDeformations of Braided Exterior Algebras
(Springer (part of Springer Nature), 20181126)We classify PBWdeformations of quadraticconstant type of certain quantizations of exterior algebras. These correspond to the fundamental modules of quantum slN, their duals, and their direct sums. We show that the ﬁrst ... 
On second cohomology of duals of compact quantum groups
(World Scientific Publishing, 201109)We show that for any compact connected group G the second cohomology group de ned by unitary invariant 2cocycles on ^G is canonically isomorphic to H2(\Z(G); T). This implies that the group of autoequivalences of the C ... 
On solving the SPL problem using the concept of probability flux
(Springer, 20190202)The Stochastic Point Location (SPL) problem [20] is a fundamental learning problem that has recently found a lot of research attention. SPL can be summarized as searching for an unknown point in an interval under faulty ... 
On Taiwanese pupils’ ability to differentiate between English /l/ and /r/: A study of L1/L2 crosslanguage effects
(SAGE Publications, 2017)Students in South East Asia often struggle with English /l/ and /r/. This study therefore set out to examine how Taiwanese pupils’ perception of these sounds is influenced by cross language effects. Most Taiwanese ... 
On the analysis of a random walkjump chain with treebased transitions and its applications to faulty dichotomous search
(Taylor & Francis, 20180308)Random Walks (RWs) have been extensively studied for more than a century [1]. These walks have traditionally been on a line, and the generalizations for two and three dimensions, have been by extending the random steps to ... 
On the Classiﬁcation of Dynamical Data Streams Using Novel “Anti–Bayesian” Techniques
(Elsevier, 2018)The classification of dynamical data streams is among the most complex problems encountered in classification. This is, firstly, because the distribution of the data streams is nonstationary, ... 
On the Effects of Omitting Information Exchange between Autonomous Resource Management Agents
(Springer, 2013)We study the problem of information exchange between coordinated autonomous resource management agents. We limit information to that which can be directly observed by each agent. While exchanging all relevant observables ... 
On the existence and characterization of extreme events in wind data
(European Conference On Renewable Energy Systems (ECRES), 2019)We present evidence that quantitative definitions of extreme events in wind, so called gusts, may be flawed and unable to grasp true extreme situations of wind velocity in short time intervals. In particular, we show that ... 
On the Global Navigation Satellite Systems and Relativity
(Fagbokforlaget, 2013)GNSS, or more precisely GNSS2, is an abbreviation for Glob al Navigation Satellite Systems – Second generation, and serves as a generic name for the class of modern global sa tellite based radio navigation systems. ... 
On the Implications of Sense of Control over Bicycling : Design of a Physical StaminaAware Bike
(ACM Press, 2010)Bicycling has become a mainstream activity among the environmental aware generation. Bicycling communities have gradually shown interests in quantitative data of the bicycling experiences such as road roughness, ... 
On the moments of a polynomial in one variable
(Elsevier, 20191210)Let f be a nonzero polynomial with complex coeﬃcients and deﬁne Mn(f) =R1 0 f(x)n dx. We use ideas of Duistermaat and van der Kallen to prove limsupn→∞ Mn(f)1/n > 0. In particular, Mn(f) 6= 0 for inﬁnitely many n ∈ N. 
On the nondisabled perceptions of four common mobility devices in Norway: A comparative study based on semantic differentials
(IOS Press, 2019)BACKGROUND: Mobility devices such as walkers and wheelchairs are often associated with certain stigma. Such devices must be designed with the goal of reducing stigma to decrease the abandonmentrate. Yet there is little ... 
On the normal sheaf of determinantal varieties
(De Gruyter, 20140618)Let X be a standard determinantal scheme X of P^n of codimension c, i.e. a scheme defined by the maximal minors of a tx(t+c1)homogeneous polynomial matrix A. In this paper, we study the main features of its normal sheaf ... 
On the Online Classification of Data Streams Using Weak Estimators
(2016)In this paper, we propose a novel online classifier for complex data streams which are generated from nonstationary stochastic properties. Instead of using a single training model and counters to keep important data ... 
On the relativity of rotation
(Italian Physical Society, 2010)The question whether rotational motion is relative according to the general theory of relativity is discussed. Einstein’s ambivalence concerning this question is pointed out. In the present article I defend Einstein’s way ... 
On the statistical nature of distinct cycles in global warming variables
(Springer Verlag, 20170110)Cycle times found in many oceanic time series have been explained with references to external mechanisms that act on the systems. Here we show that when we extract cycle times from 100 sets of paired random series, we find ... 
On the Truthfulness of Petal Graphs for Visualisation of Data
(Tapir Akademisk Forlag, 20121101)A petal graph is an aesthetically attractive and applauded tool for visualising parameter sets. For instance, petal graphs are often used by Norwegian policy makers and decision makers in higher education as the Ministry ...
