    Weak Boundary and Interface Procedures for Wave and Flow Problems2011Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, we have analyzed the accuracy and stability aspects of weak boundary and interface conditions (WBCs) for high order finite difference methods on Summations-By-Parts (SBP) form. The numerical technique has been applied to wave propagation and flow problems.

    The advantage of WBCs over strong boundary conditions is that stability of the numerical scheme can be proven. The boundary procedures in the advection-diffusion equation for a boundary layer problem is analyzed. By performing Navier-Stokes calculations, it is shown that most of the conclusions from the model problem carries over to the fully nonlinear case.

    The work was complemented to include the new idea of using WBCs on multiple grid points in a region, where the data is known, instead of at a single point. It was shown that we can achieve high accuracy, an increased rate of convergence to steady-state and non-reflecting boundary conditions by using this approach.

    Using the SBP technique and WBCs, we have worked out how to construct conservative and energy stable hybrid schemes for shocks using two different approaches. In the first method, we combine a high order finite difference scheme with a second order MUSCL scheme. In the second method, a procedure to locally change the order of accuracy of the finite difference schemes is developed. The main purpose is to obtain a higher order accurate scheme in smooth regions and a low order non-oscillatory scheme in the vicinity of shocks.

    Furthermore, we have analyzed the energy stability of the MUSCL scheme, by reformulating the scheme in the framework of SBP and artificial dissipation operators. It was found that many of the standard slope limiters in the MUSCL scheme do not lead to a negative semi-definite dissipation matrix, as required to get pointwise stability.

    Finally, high order simulations of shock diffracting over a convex wall with two facets were performed. The numerical study is done for a range of Reynolds numbers. By monitoring the velocities at the solid wall, it was shown that the computations were resolved in the boundary layer. Schlieren images from the computational results were obtained which displayed new interesting flow features.

    Dense-Timed Petri Nets: Checking Zenoness, Token liveness and Boundedness2007In: Logical Methods in Computer Science, ISSN 1860-5974, E-ISSN 1860-5974, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 1-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We consider Dense-Timed Petri Nets (TPN), an extension of Petri nets in which each token is equipped with a real-valued clock and where the semantics is lazy (i.e., enabled transitions need not fire; time can pass and disable transitions). We consider the following verification problems for TPNs. (i) Zenoness: whether there exists a zeno-computation from a given marking, i.e., an infinite computation which takes only a finite amount of time. We show decidability of zenoness for TPNs, thus solving an open problem from [Escrig et al.]. Furthermore, the related question if there exist arbitrarily fast computations from a given marking is also decidable. On the other hand, universal zenoness, i.e., the question if all infinite computations from a given marking are zeno, is undecidable. (ii) Token liveness: whether a token is alive in a marking, i.e., whether there is a computation from the marking which eventually consumes the token. We show decidability of the problem by reducing it to the coverability problem, which is decidable for TPNs. (iii) Boundedness: whether the size of the reachable markings is bounded. We consider two versions of the problem; namely semantic boundedness where only live tokens are taken into consideration in the markings, and syntactic boundedness where also dead tokens are considered. We show undecidability of semantic boundedness, while we prove that syntactic boundedness is decidable through an extension of the Karp-Miller algorithm.

    Direct and Inverse Methods for Waveguides and Scattering Problems in the Time Domain2005Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Numerical simulation is an important tool in understanding the electromagnetic field and how it interacts with the environment. Different topics for time-domain finite-difference (FDTD) and finite-element (FETD) methods for Maxwell's equations are treated in this thesis.

    Subcell models are of vital importance for the efficient modeling of small objects that are not resolved by the grid. A novel model for thin sheets using shell elements is proposed. This approach has the advantage of taking into account discontinuities in the normal component of the electric field, unlike previous models based on impedance boundary conditions (IBCs). Several results are presented to illustrate the capabilities of the shell element approach.

    Waveguides are of fundamental importance in many microwave applications, for example in antenna feeds. The key issues of excitation and truncation of waveguides are addressed. A complex frequency shifted form of the uniaxial perfectly matched layer (UPML) absorbing boundary condition (ABC) in FETD is developed. Prism elements are used to promote automatic grid generation and enhance the performance. Results are presented where reflection errors below -70dB are obtained for different types of waveguides, including inhomogeneous cases. Excitation and analysis via the scattering parameters are achieved using waveguide modes computed by a general frequency-domain mode solver for the vector Helmholtz equation. Huygens surfaces are used in both FDTD and FETD for excitation in waveguide ports.

    Inverse problems have received an increased interest due to the availability of powerful computers. An important application is non-destructive evaluation of material. A time-domain, minimization approach is presented where exact gradients are computed using the adjoint problem. The approach is applied to a general form of Maxwell's equations including dispersive media and UPML. Successful reconstruction examples are presented both using synthetic and experimental measurement data. Parameter reduction of complex geometries using simplified models is an interesting topic that leads to an inverse problem. Gradients for subcell parameters are derived and a successful reconstruction example is presented for a combined dielectric sheet and slot geometry.

    Abstract [en]

    We show that the transfer map on Floer homotopy types associated to an exact Lagrangian embedding is an equivalence. This provides an obstruction to representing isotopy classes of Lagrangian immersions by Lagrangian embeddings, which, unlike previous obstructions, is sensitive to information that cannot be detected by Floer cochains. We show this by providing a concrete computation in the case of spheres.

    General inequalities via isotonic subadditive functionals2007In: Mathematical Inequalities & Applications, ISSN 1331-4343, E-ISSN 1848-9966, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 15-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this manuscript a number of general inequalities for isotonic subadditive functionals on a set of positive mappings are proved and applied. In particular, it is pointed out that these inequalities both unify and generalize some general forms of the Hö̈lder, Popoviciu, Minkowski, Bellman and Power mean inequalities. Also some refinements of some of these results are proved.

    Dehn surgeries and rational homology2017In: Algebraic and Geometric Topology, ISSN 1472-2747, E-ISSN 1472-2739, Vol. 17, no 1, p. 487-527Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We consider the question of which Dehn surgeries along a given knot bound rational homology balls. We use Ozsvath and Szabo's correction terms in Heegaard Floer homology to obtain general constraints on the surgery coefficients. We then turn our attention to the case of integral surgeries, with particular emphasis on positive torus knots. Finally, combining these results with a lattice-theoretic obstruction based on Donaldson's theorem, we classify which integral surgeries along torus knots of the form Tkq 1; q bound rational homology balls.

    Embedding 3-manifolds in spin 4-manifolds2017In: Journal of Topology, ISSN 1753-8416, E-ISSN 1753-8424, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 301-323Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An invariant of orientable 3-manifolds is defined by taking the minimum n such that a given 3-manifold embeds in the connected sum of n copies of S-2 x S-2, and we call this n the embedding number of the 3-manifold. We give some general properties of this invariant, and make calculations for families of lens spaces and Brieskorn spheres. We show how to construct rational and integral homology spheres whose embedding numbers grow arbitrarily large, and which can be calculated exactly if we assume the 11/8-Conjecture. In a different direction we show that any simply connected 4-manifold can be split along a rational homology sphere into a positive definite piece and a negative definite piece.

    Cutting down trees with a Markov chainsaw2014In: The Annals of Applied Probability, ISSN 1050-5164, E-ISSN 2168-8737, Vol. 24, no 6, p. 2297-2339Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We provide simplified proofs for the asymptotic distribution of the number of cuts required to cut down a Galton-Watson tree with critical, finite-variance offspring distribution, conditioned to have total progeny n. Our proof is based on a coupling which yields a precise, nonasymptotic distributional result for the case of uniformly random rooted labeled trees (or, equivalently, Poisson Galton-Watson trees conditioned on their size). Our approach also provides a new, random reversible transformation between Brownian excursion and Brownian bridge.

    On the Spread of Random Graphs2014In: Combinatorics, probability & computing, ISSN 0963-5483, E-ISSN 1469-2163, Vol. 23, no 4, p. 477-504Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The spread of a connected graph G was introduced by Alon, Boppana and Spencer [1], and measures how tightly connected the graph is. It is defined as the maximum over all Lipschitz functions f on V(G) of the variance of f(X) when X is uniformly distributed on V(G). We investigate the spread for certain models of sparse random graph, in particular for random regular graphs G(n,d), for Erdos-Renyi random graphs G(n,p) in the supercritical range p > 1/n, and for a `small world' model. For supercritical G(n,p), we show that if p = c/n with c > 1 fixed, then with high probability the spread of the giant component is bounded, and we prove corresponding statements for other models of random graphs, including a model with random edge lengths. We also give lower bounds on the spread for the barely supercritical case when p = (1 + o(1))/n. Further, we show that for d large, with high probability the spread of G(n, d) becomes arbitrarily close to that of the complete graph K-n.

    Cocompactness and minimizers for inequalities of Hardy-Sobolev type involving N-Laplacian2010In: NoDEA. Nonlinear differential equations and applications (Printed ed.), ISSN 1021-9722, E-ISSN 1420-9004, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 467-477Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper studies quasilinear elliptic problems in the Sobolev spaces W-1,W-p(Omega), Omega subset of R-N, with p = N, that is, the case of Pohozhaev-Trudinger-Moser inequality. Similarly to the case p < N where the loss of compactness in W-1,W-p(R-N) occurs due to dilation operators u bar right arrow t((N-p)/p)u(tx), t > 0, and can be accounted for in decompositions of the type of Struwe's "global compactness" and its later refinements, this paper presents a previously unknown group of isometric operators that leads to loss of compactness in W-0(1,N) over a ball in R-N. We give a one-parameter scale of Hardy-Sobolev functionals, a "p = N"-counterpart of the Holder interpolation scale, for p > N, between the Hardy functional integral vertical bar u vertical bar(p)/vertical bar x vertical bar(p) dx and the Sobolev functional integral vertical bar u vertical bar(pN/(N-mp)) dx. Like in the case p < N, these functionals are invariant with respect to the dilation operators above, and the respective concentration-compactness argument yields existence of minimizers for W-1,W-N-norms under Hardy-Sobolev constraints.

    Defect of compactness in spaces of bounded variation2016In: Journal of Functional Analysis, ISSN 0022-1236, E-ISSN 1096-0783, Vol. 271, no 1, p. 37-48Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Defect of compactness for non-compact imbeddings of Banach spaces can be expressed in the form of a profile decomposition. Let X be a Banach space continuously imbedded into a Banach space Y, and let D be a group of linear isometric operators on X. A profile decomposition in X, relative to D and Y, for a bounded sequence (x(k))(k is an element of N) subset of X is a sequence (S-k)(k is an element of N), such that (x(k) - S-k)(k is an element of N) is a convergent sequence in Y, and, furthermore, S-k has the particular form S-k = Sigma(n is an element of N)g(k)((n))W((n)) with g(k)((n)) is an element of D and w((n)) is an element of X. This paper extends the profile decomposition proved by Solimini [10] for Sobolev spaces (H) over dot(1,P)(R-N) with 1 < p < N to the non-reflexive case p = 1. Since existence of "concentration profiles" w((n)) relies on weak-star compactness, and the space (H) over dot(1,1) is not a conjugate of a Banach space, we prove a corresponding result for a larger space of functions of bounded variation. The result extends also to spaces of bounded variation on Lie groups.

    Hardy inequalities for weighted Dirac operator2010In: Annali di Matematica Pura ed Applicata, ISSN 0373-3114, E-ISSN 1618-1891, Vol. 189, no 2, p. 241-251Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An inequality of Hardy type is established for quadratic forms involving Dirac operator and a weight r(-b) for functions in R-n. The exact Hardy constant c(b) = c(b) (n) is found and generalized minimizers are given. The constant cb vanishes on a countable set of b, which extends the known case n = 2, b = 0 which corresponds to the trivial Hardy inequality in R-2. Analogous inequalities are proved in the case c(b) = 0 under constraints and, with error terms, for a bounded domain.

    On a version of Trudinger-Moser inequality with Möbius shift invariance2010In: Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations, ISSN 0944-2669, E-ISSN 1432-0835, Vol. 39, no 1-2, p. 203-212Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper raises a question about the optimal critical nonlinearity for the Sobolev space in two dimensions, connected to loss of compactness, and discusses the pertinent concentration compactness framework. We study properties of the improved version of the Trudinger-Moser inequality on the open unit disk B subset of R-2, recently proved by Mancini and Sandeep [g], (Arxiv 0910.0971). Unlike the original Trudinger-Moser inequality, this inequality is invariant with respect to the Mobius automorphisms of the unit disk, and as such is a closer analogy of the critical nonlinearity integral |u|(2)* in the higher dimension than the original Trudinger-Moser nonlinearity.

    On compactness in the Trudinger-Moser inequality2014In: Annali della Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa (Classe Scienze), Serie V, ISSN 0391-173X, E-ISSN 2036-2145, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 399-416Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We show that the Moser functional J(u) = integral Omega(e(4 pi u2) - 1) dx on the set B = {u is an element of H-0(1)(Omega) : parallel to del u parallel to(2) <= 1}, where Omega subset of R-2 is a bounded domain, fails to be weakly continuous only in the following exceptional case. Define g(s)w(r) = s(-1/2)w(r(s)) for s > 0. If u(k) -> u in B while lim inf J(u(k)) > J(u), then, with some s(k) -> 0, u(k) = g(sk) [(2 pi)(-1/2) min {1, log1/vertical bar x vertical bar}], up to translations and up to a remainder vanishing in the Sobolev norm. In other words, the weak continuity fails only on translations of concentrating Moser functions. The proof is based on a profile decomposition similar to that of Solimini [16], but with different concentration operators, pertinent to the two-dimensional case.

    Överlåtaren: a fast way to transfer and orthogonalize two-dimensional off-specular reflectivity data2016In: Journal of applied crystallography, ISSN 0021-8898, E-ISSN 1600-5767, Vol. 49, p. 2091-2099Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Reflectivity measurements offer unique opportunities for the study of surfaces and interfaces, and specular reflectometry has become a standard tool in materials science to resolve structures normal to the surface of a thin film. Off-specular scattering, which probes lateral structures, is more difficult to analyse, because the Fourier space being probed is highly anisotropic and the scattering pattern is truncated by the interface. As a result, scattering patterns collected with (especially time-of-flight) neutron reflectometers are difficult to transform into reciprocal space for comparison with model calculations. A program package is presented for a generic two-dimensional transformation of reflectometry data into q space and back. The data are represented on an orthogonal grid, allowing cuts along directions relevant for theoretical modelling. This treatment includes background subtraction as well as a full characterization of the resolution function. The method is optimized for computational performance using repeatable operations and standardized instrument settings.

    Forecasting GDP Growth, or How Can Random Forests Improve Predictions in Economics?2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    GDP is used to measure the economic state of a country and accurate forecasts of it is therefore important. Using the Economic Tendency Survey we investigate forecasting quarterly GDP growth using the data mining technique Random Forest. Comparisons are made with a benchmark AR(1) and an ad hoc linear model built on the most important variables suggested by the Random Forest. Evaluation by forecasting shows that the Random Forest makes the most accurate forecast supporting the theory that there are benefits to using Random Forests on economic time series.

    Abstract [en]

    We prove that the probability of crossing a large square in quenched Voronoi percolation converges to 1/2 at criticality, confirming a conjecture of Benjamini, Kalai and Schramm from 1999. The main new tools are a quenched version of the box-crossing property for Voronoi percolation at criticality, and an Efron Stein type bound on the variance of the probability of the crossing event in terms of the sum of the squares of the influences. As a corollary of the proof, we moreover obtain that the quenched crossing event at criticality is almost surely noise sensitive.

    Scaling limits for the threshold window: When does a monotone Boolean function flip its outcome?2017In: Annales de l'I.H.P. Probabilites et statistiques, ISSN 0246-0203, E-ISSN 1778-7017, Vol. 53, no 4, p. 2135-2161Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Consider a monotone Boolean function f : {0, 1}(n) -> {0, 1} and the canonical monotone coupling {eta(p) : p is an element of [0, 1]} of an element in {0, 1}(n) chosen according to product measure with intensity p is an element of [0, 1]. The random point p is an element of [0, 1] where f (eta(p)) flips from 0 to 1 is often concentrated near a particular point, thus exhibiting a threshold phenomenon. For a sequence of such Boolean functions, we peer closely into this threshold window and consider, for large n, the limiting distribution (properly normalized to be nondegenerate) of this random point where the Boolean function switches from being 0 to 1. We determine this distribution for a number of the Boolean functions which are typically studied and pay particular attention to the functions corresponding to iterated majority and percolation crossings. It turns out that these limiting distributions have quite varying behavior. In fact, we show that any nondegenerate probability measure on R arises in this way for some sequence of Boolean functions.

    Computational Ice Sheet Dynamics: Error control and efficiency2016Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Ice sheets, such as the Greenland Ice Sheet or Antarctic Ice Sheet, have a fundamental impact on landscape formation, the global climate system, and on sea level rise. The slow, creeping flow of ice can be represented by a non-linear version of the Stokes equations, which treat ice as a non-Newtonian, viscous fluid. Large spatial domains combined with long time spans and complexities such as a non-linear rheology, make ice sheet simulations computationally challenging. The topic of this thesis is the efficiency and error control of large simulations, both in the sense of mathematical modelling and numerical algorithms. In the first part of the thesis, approximative models based on perturbation expansions are studied. Due to a thick boundary layer near the ice surface, some classical assumptions are inaccurate and the higher order model called the Second Order Shallow Ice Approximation (SOSIA) yields large errors. In the second part of the thesis, the Ice Sheet Coupled Approximation Level (ISCAL) method is developed and implemented into the finite element ice sheet model Elmer/Ice. The ISCAL method combines the Shallow Ice Approximation (SIA) and Shelfy Stream Approximation (SSA) with the full Stokes model, such that the Stokes equations are only solved in areas where both the SIA and SSA is inaccurate. Where and when the SIA and SSA is applicable is decided automatically and dynamically based on estimates of the modeling error. The ISCAL method provides a significant speed-up compared to the Stokes model. The third contribution of this thesis is the introduction of Radial Basis Function (RBF) methods in glaciology. Advantages of RBF methods in comparison to finite element methods or finite difference methods are demonstrated.
