Asymptotic Analysis of Linear and Nonlinear Statistics. Prof. Dr. Habil. K. Kubilius. 2013–2015.

An upper bound on the tail probabilities for the normalized Rademacher sums with the smallest possible constant is obtained. A general differential equation is found, formed from the characteristic function, which allows us to obtain the optimal estimates of the rate of convergence of distributions to the normal distribution for one random variable and for some random sums of independent identically distributed random variables.

Post doctoral research fellow A. Čiginas, Prof. Dr. M. Radavičius. 2013–2015.

Gini’s mean difference statistic was considered as universal alternative to the empirical variance in the settings of finite populations where simple random samples are drawn without replacement. Specific estimation strategies for a scale of the population were constructed, and asymptotic properties of both the statistics were explored and compared.

A new method was introduced in problems where estimates are needed for finite population domains with small or even zero sample sizes. The method was applied for several common cases of auxiliary information.

COST action Mathematical Optimization in the Decision Support Systems for Efficient and Robust Energy Networks TD1207 Member of Managing Committee Prof. Dr. J. Žilinskas. 2013–2017.

http://www.cost.eu/domains_actions/ict/Actions/TD1207?management.

Energy Production and Distribution (EP&D) is among the biggest challenges of our time, since energy is a scarce resource whose efficient production and fair distribution is associated with many technical, economical, political and ethical issues like environmental protection and people health. EP&D networks have rapidly increased their size and complexity. Thus, there is an increasing need of systems supporting the operational, regulatory and design decisions through a highly inter-disciplinary approach, where experts of all the concerned fields contribute to the definition of appropriate mathematical models. This is particularly challenging because these models require the simultaneous use of many different mathematical optimization tools and the verification by experts of the underlying engineering and financial issues.

COST action Onetwork for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing (NESUS) IC1305 Member of Managing Committee Dr. A. Lančinskas. 2014–2018.

http://www.cost.eu/COST_Actions/ict/Actions/IC1305

The goal of the NESUS Action is to establish an open European research network targeting sustainable solutions for ultrascale computing aiming at cross fertilization among HPC, large scale distributed systems, and big data management. The network will contribute to glue disparate researchers working across different areas and provide a meeting ground for researchers in these separate areas to exchange ideas, to identify synergies, and to pursue common activities in research topics such as sustainable software solutions (applications and system software stack), data management, energy efficiency, and resilience. Some of the most active research groups of the world in this area are members of this proposal. This Action will increase the value of these groups at the European-level by reducing duplication of efforts and providing a more holistic view to all researchers, it will promote the leadership of Europe, and it will increase their impact on science, economy, and society.

Research of Software Engineering Methods Arrangement with Semantic Modelling Methods of Business Management. Prof. Dr. S. Gudas. 2015–2017. 

New concepts for the modelling of a subject domain of information systems are introduced: a management transaction and a management functional dependency (MFD). A management transaction is considered as a sequence of information transformations aimed to implement particular MFD.  A semantic building block of enterprise management internal model is defined as the Elementary Management Cycle (EMC).

The principle possibilities of using autonomic computing approach to implement the Elementary Management Cycle (EMC) are examined. This approach is aimed for the enterprise software system development and integration using autonomic computing.

An approach for representing interconnections and method of semi-automated e-service composition in the context of the water resource management information system are proposed.

The sound and complete sequent calculus for half-order modal logic was constructed.

The arithmetic schemes with addition and multiplication operations approximating given multidimensional polynomial were investigated; these schemes produce precise calculation for Boolean vectors only. It was proved that such schemes can be exponentially stronger than the arithmetic schemes which are calculating polynomials precisely, and exponentially weaker than monotone Boolean schemes.

Investigation of Fractal Properties of Random Proceses and Random Fields. Prof. R. Norvaiša, Prof. D. Surgailis. 20122015.

Almost sure convergence of weighted power variations is established for a class of random processes defined as L2- stochastic integrals with deterministic integrand with respect to a Gaussian process, which do not need to have stationary increments. The conditions for the convergence are expressed in terms of p-variations of the covariance function of the Gaussian process. In particular, the result holds for fractional Brownian motion, subfractional Brownian motion and bifractional Brownian motion.

The notion of scaling transition and distributional long-range dependence for stationary random fields on the plane were introduced in terms of scaling limits over rectangles whose sides grow at arbitrary rate. The existence of scaling transition was established for several classes of long-range dependent random fields, including a natural class of Gaussian random fields with singular spectral density.

National Research Projects

Research Council of Lithuania. Modeling the Status and Causing Factors of Lithuanian Education System (No. MIP-024/2015) Dr. A. Jakaitienė. 2015 –2017.

The project has two main goals: the international PISA survey data analysis and education system monitoring index construction. In 2015, the main workload was devoted for the index construction. European Commission within the Education and Training Monitor initiative calculates indices towards Europe 2020 strategy. Each country indices are calculated normalizing data with respect to EU28 average. We develop the methodology according CIPO model (Context – Input – Process – Output) to construct Education Monitoring Index for a country. For methodologically consistent data for a country, we use Europe 2020 strategy main indicators as starting dataset. Preliminary results of Education monitoring index for Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, United Kingdom, Finland and Germany presented at 7th International Conference of the ERCIM WG on Computational and Methodological Statistics, 12-14 December, 2015, United Kingdom.

Research Council of Lithuania. Geometry and Topology of Groups (No. MIP-046/2014) Dr. D. Otera. 2014–2016.

Asymptotic topology of manifolds and quasi-isometry invariants of discrete groups. Main topics: simple connectivity at infinity, geometric simple connectivity, quasi-simple filtration (QSF), Tucker property, and the easy inverse representations. The main goal is to show that all groups are easyly representable.

Research Council of Lithuania. Identification of Epigenetic Markers for Early Diagnosis of Colorectal Cancer (No. MIP-043/2014) Dr. J. Gordevičius. 2014–2016.

In this project we propose to perform data analysis of epigenetic profiles in blood circulating DNA to detect epigenetic biomarkers for early CRC diagnosis. Our goal is to apply novel algorithmic methods that will reveal epigenetic aberrations in extended regions when comparing cancer patients to controls. The detected regions will be used to train machine learning algorithms and to build and evaluate an early diagnostic CRC classifier. The bioinformatics analysis conducted in this project may provide novel, non-invasive markers, with the potential for translation into clinical practice.

The aim of the project was to analyse and evaluate pre-symptomatic risk assessment methods that calculate the lifetime risk of a disease by the use of multiple SNPs information. Methods used by genetic risk assessment companies Navigenics and 23andMe, Inc. have been selected for detailed evaluation and modification. The theoretical disease model that describes both environmental and genetic factors was used for evaluation of assessment methods. The system of nonlinear equations for tuning model’s parameters to real statistical parameters of the disease was created. The Receiver Operating Characteristic curve was used to evaluate the quality of the methods to serve as a predictive test.
