International Research Projects

EU-funded project MASCIL Mathematics and Science for Life. Grant Agreement No. 320693, funding line: FP7-SCIENCE-IN-SOCIETY-2012-1.

MASCIL is organized as a European Consortium of 18 higher education institutions (from 13 countries) and coordinated by the University of Education Freiburg. In the framework of the MASCIL project and its activities the Consortium aspires to work closely with teachers and other key groups in the school system to improve mathematics and science lessons.

The aim of MASCIL is to effect changes in mathematics and science lessons cultures by more broadly implementing inquiry-based learning (in close connection to the world of work) in day-to-day teaching, and to scientifically evaluate the effectiveness of the interventions. To this end the MASCIL project (01/01/2013–31/12/2016) incorporates a continuous intervention and evaluation study. For the evaluation of the activities of the project we use a mixed-method design which includes summative elements to evaluate the success of the project as well as formative elements to allow a correction of strategies, if needed.

IGUANA – Improving School Governance Using an Action Learning Approach, Nr. 527856-LLP-1-2012-1-PT-COMENIUS-CMP

http://www.iguana-project.eu/

The aim of the project is to co-ordinate the validation of the IGUANA platform for emotional intelligence, tools and training programme by using high qualified national teacher network. The network is based on requirements and selected criteria.

Main activities: school governance structures, approaches and models in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, identifying the obstacles to change, were reviewed. Literature review, interviews and questionnaires were used; Iguana project website in Lithuanian language was developed; the emotional intelligence assessment tool has been developed and validation process is started.

Analysis and Recognition of Random Signals. Prof. Habil. Dr. A. L. Telksnys, Prof. Dr. J. Žilinskas.

The main results were: nonlinear regression using covering algorithms.

The problem of speech segmentation is analyzed. The relation of pitch trajectory and phoneme sequences was explored aiming at implementing ambiguous segmentation of speech signal. The change of pitch values helps detect some segments, but these regions don not coincide with phonemes. This implies the necessity to compose the set of acoustical units as the basis for speech segmentation.

Main results obtained in 2013: a model of dynamic branching programs to analyze the dynamic programming paradigm was introduced. It was proved that the classical dynamic programming algorithm for the Knapsack problem is optimal. Using this approach, non-existence of efficient dynamic algorithms for some other optimization problems were proved. The next row of obtained results concerns the limitations of additive algorithms over Boolean OR and XOR semirings. New general lower bounds were proved for these classical models.

Investigation of Fractal Properties of Random Processes and Random Fields . R. Norvaiša, D. Surgailis, 2012−2013.

Statistical techniques of detection of a nonconstant long memory parameter in time series are developed. The null hypothesis presumes stationary or nonstationary time series with a constant long memory parameter, typically an I (d) series with d >−.5. The alternative corresponds to an increase in persistence and includes in particular an abrupt or gradual change from I (d1) to I (d2), −.5 <d1 <d2. Several test statistics based on the ratio of forward and backward sample variances of the partial sums are discussed. The consistency of the tests is proved under a very general setting. A simulation study shows that our testing procedures have good finite sample properties and turn out to be more powerful than the KPSS-based tests considered in some previous works.
