National Research Projects

Research Council of Lithuania. Colour Restoration In Cultural Heritage Objects Using

Solid‐State Lighting (No. MIP-096/2015). Head Prof. Dr. R. Vaicekauskas. 2015–2017.

The objects of cultural heritage, such as paintings, textiles, and jewellery, are damaged by the environmental factors over the time.The idea of the Project HeriLED is to investigate the possibility of recreating the original appearance of an damaged object using a lighting device having appropriate spectral power distribution that is comprised of light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
In the first phase of the project the photo-sensitive materials used in cultural heritage objects were investigated. Selected colour samples were artificially aged using UV lighting. It was shown by digital experiment that the limited number of colours can be precisely restored by adjusting the spectrum of light source. Also, psychophysical experiments revealed, metameric spectra did not coincide, this can be reduced by applying 10 degrees standard observer colour matching functions.

Research Council of Lithuania. Modeling Investment Portfolio using Quantum Chaos (No. MIP-100/2015). Head Assoc. Prof. Dr. A. Raudys. 2015–2017.

An objective of the project is the analysis of regularities of environment’s changes in the financial markets, building up methods to detect them and using the regularities while developing the portfolio weights calculation algorithms, to validate novel methods in the practical work. Artificially generated multidimensional semi-chaotic signals will be used to mimic financial indicators by novel quantum chaos model. The model was suggested by the project authors. It is based on signal propagation in multi-group excitable media composed of cellular automaton mimicking neural networks schemes. The results of the economy and finance simulation will be used to justify the ways of portfolio design. Contrary to existing schemes, the new solution will allow inclusion of feedback loops, assess the periodic and non-periodic fluctuations in the environment in evolving portfolio scheme. Novel methods will be checked carefully by applying them in practical work with real world, large scale financial data obtained from Lithuanian partners and international data bases.

Investigations of Solutions to Differential and Integro-differential Equations. Prof. K. Pileckas. 2014–2017.

The asymptotics of solutions with vanishing at infinity velocity of the steady-state Navier–Stokes equations is 6 studied in an exterior domain of R4. It is proved that the leading part in the asymptotic representation coincides with the fundamental solutions of the Stokes system.
The nonhomogeneous boundary value problem for the stationary Navier–Stokes equations set in two-dimensional symmetric domains with finitely many outlets to infinity was studied. The existence of at least one weak solution was proved for arbitrarily large fluxes over the inner and outer boundaries.
The mathematical models, for toxin–antibody interaction and toxin trafficking towards the endoplasmic-reticulum, for Shiga 2 toxin neutralization by A-and B-subunit-specific human monoclonal antibodies, for the CO oxidation with N2O reaction proceeding over composite catalysts, for two types of enzyme-containing filters are presented and studied numerically.

Studies of Random Processes and Fields and their Applications in Financial and Actuarial Mathematics. Prof. J. Šiaulys. 2016–2021.

The asymptotic formula was obtained for the finite-time ruin probability in the inhomogeneuos risk renewal model. The closure property was established of distributions from class D with respect to the random sum in the case of not identically distributed summands. The asymptotic formula was derived for the distribution tail of the randomly weighted and stopped sum.
Anisotropic long-range dependence in autoregressive random fields was studied.
The existence of a smooth solution of the backward Kolomogorov equation related to the CIR procees is proved. Possibilities of approximation of positive solutions of general SDEs by discrete random variables were studied. The poperties of the stochastic Verhulst equation were studied in the context of possible applications as an interest rate model.  
A new class of measures of dependence for random variables with infinite variance was introduced. Properties of these measures and relations between them were investigated. Lamperti type theorems for random fields were obtained. Using the Monte-Karlo simulations several tail index estimators were compared.
Actuarial analysis of adequacy / financial sustainability of social security pensions were investigated.
New bounds for the multivariate Clayton copula were obtained.

Measurements of adequacy / financial sustainability of social security pension schemes. Project is carried out by Social Security Committee of International Actuarial Association. Dr. A. Skučaitė. 2016.

To prepare a (survey) paper on adequacy / sustainability of Social Security systems throughout the world. During 2016 research on whether and – if yes how sustainability / adequacy of social security retirement pension systems is defined and / or measured in 11 countries throughout the world was carried out. Preliminary results were presented by A. Skučaitė during biannual meeting of Social Security Committee of International Actuarial Association in Cape Town (November 2016).

Algebraic, abelian and commutative pairs of projective flows with rational vector field were investigated (3 publications). Further, the theory of projective superflows was developed over O(2), O(3) and U(2) (3 publications). For example, over O(3) there exist exactly 5 superflows, 3 of them irreducible, 2 - reducible. Also, the generating function that counts words equal to the unity in the modular group was investigated.
