    • A Colour Interpolation Scheme for Topologically Unrestricted Gradient Meshes 

      Lieng, Henrik; Kosinka, Jiri; Shen, Jingjing; Dodgson, Neil (Wiley, 2017)
      Gradient meshes are a 2D vector graphics primitive where colour is interpolated between mesh vertices. The current implementations of gradient meshes are restricted to rectangular mesh topology. Our new interpolation method ...
    • A novel strategy for solving the stochastic point location problem using a hierarchical searching scheme 

      Yazidi, Anis; Granmo, Ole-Christoffer; Oommen, John; Goodwin, Morten (IEEE, 2014)
      Stochastic point location (SPL) deals with the problem of a learning mechanism (LM) determining the optimal point on the line when the only input it receives are stochastic signals about the direction in which it should ...
    • A quantitative analysis of the uncertainty in grading of written exams in mathematics and physics 

      Hammer, Hugo Lewi; Habib, Laurence (iSER Publications, 2016-03-05)
      The most common way to grade students in courses at university and university college level is to use final written exams. The aim of final exams is generally to provide a reliable and a valid measurement of the extent to ...
    • A Queue Model for Reliable Forecasting of Future CPU Consumption 

      Hammer, Hugo Lewi; Yazidi, Anis; Bratterud, Alfred; Haugerud, Hårek; Feng, Boning (Springer, 2017)
      Statistical queuing models are popular to analyze a computer systems ability to process different types requests. A common strategy is to run stress tests by sending artificial requests to the system. The rate and sizes ...
    • A relativistic trolley paradox 

      Matvejev, Vadim; Matvejev, Oleg; Grøn, Øyvind (American Association of Physics Teachers, 2016-02)
      We present an apparent paradox within the special theory of relativity, involving a trolley with relativistic velocity and its rolling wheels. Two solutions are given, both making clear the physical reality of the Lorentz ...
    • A Simple Browser-based 3D-Sketching Framework for Novice and Infrequent Users 

      Sandnes, Frode Eika; Lianguzov, Yuriy (2017)
      Modelling in 3D is considered time-consuming and difficult, requiring special training. There are currently no 3D modelling user interface conventions. This paper thus presents a framework for simple 3D modelling based ...
    • A Simple MVC-Framework for Local Management of Online Course Material 

      Sandnes, Frode Eika; Eika, Evelyn (Springer, 2017)
      Managing online materials for large classes can be time-consuming and error prone. In particular, it can be challenging to manage long lists of students, lecture progress, and auditorium schedules as these often change on ...
    • A solution of the Mitra Paradox 

      Grøn, Øyvind (MDPI, 2016)
      The “Mitra paradox” refers to the fact that while the de Sitter spacetime appears non-static in a freely falling reference frame, it looks static with reference to a fixed reference frame. The coordinate-independent nature ...
    • The Accessibility of MOOCs for Blind Learners 

      Krolak, Aleksandra; Chen, Weiqin; Sanderson, Norun Christine; Kessel, Siri (2017)
      The development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) has provided unique learning opportunities for many people. In the meantime, the lack of accessibility in some MOOCs has also created barriers for ...
    • Accessibility of MOOCs for Blind People in Developing Non-English Speaking Countries 

      Ferati, Mexhid; Mripa, Njomza; Bunjaku, Ridvan (Springer Verlag, 2016-07-08)
      Besides the globally popular MOOCs, localized MOOCs specific to a region or language are also emerging. These specialized MOOCs often aim to address specific needs that are typically unaddressed by the ...
    • Achieving Connectivity between Wide Areas Through Self-Organising Robot Swarms using Embodied Evolution 

      Erik Aaron, Hansen; Nichele, Stefano; Yazidi, Anis; Haugerud, Hårek; Abolpour Mofrad, Asieh; Alcocer, Alex (IEEE, 2018)
      Abruptions to the communication infrastructuremight occur occasionally, where manual intervention by dedi-cated personnel is needed to fix the interruptions, restoring com-munication abilities. However, sometimes this can ...
    • Achieving Intelligent Traffic-aware Consolidation of Virtual Machines in a Data Center Using Learning Automata 

      Jobava, Akaki; Yazidi, Anis; Oommen, John; Begnum, Kyrre (IEEE conference proceedings, 2016)
      Cloud Computing (CC) is becoming increasingly pertinent and popular. A natural consequence of this is that many modern-day data centers experience very high internal traffic within the data centers themselves. The ...
    • An adaptive knowledge evolution strategy for finding near-optimal solutions of specific problems 

      Huang, Yo-Ping; Chang, Yueh-Tsun; Hsieh, Shang-Lin; Sandnes, Frode Eika (Elsevier, 2011-04)
      Most real-world problems cannot be mathematically defined and/or structured modularly for peer researchers in the same community to facilitate their work. This is partially because there are no concrete defined methods ...
    • Addendum. On deformations of C*-algebras by actions of Kahlerian Lie groups 

      Tuset, Lars; Bielavsky, Pierre; Gayral, Victor; Neshveyev, Sergey (World Scientific Publishing, 2019-08-19)
      We show that two approaches to equivariant deformation of C∗-algebras by actions of negatively curved K¨ahlerian Lie groups, one based on oscillatory integrals and the other on quantizations maps defined by dual 2-cocycles, ...
    • Adopt or Adapt? Unpacking the Role of Institutional Work Processes in the Implementation of New Regulations 

      Pemer, Frida; Skjølsvik, Tale (Oxford University Press, 2017)
      Building on a longitudinal study of the implementation of a new regulation and a framework of institutional work, this article makes three contributions: first, it explains how nonpowerful regulatees, by engaging in ...
    • Affinity Aware-Scheduling of Live Migration of Virtual Machines Under Maintenance Scenarios. 

      Yazidi, Anis; Ung, Frederik; Haugerud, Hårek; Begnum, Kyrre Matthias (IEEE, 2019)
      During maintenance and disaster recovery scenarios, Virtual Machine (VM) inter-site migrations usually take place over limited bandwidth–typically Wide Area Network (WAN)–which is highly affected by the amount of inter-VM ...
