Sammendrag av avhandlingen / Summary of the thesis:
A new Ph.D. thesis from UiT explores the connections between neural networks, wavelets, and modern Fourier analysis and how they can be applied to various problems in engineering sciences and applied mathematics. The thesis consists of six papers, which address topics ranging from the systematic use of energy flexibility in weak power grids to predicting room usage at a university campus to new inequalities and sharpness results concerning the Walsh-Fourier series.
The investigations in the papers have led to new insights and potential solutions to problems in areas such as structural health monitoring and machine learning. The use of recurrent neural networks and wavelet-based neural networks has been shown to be effective in generating realistic values and accelerating the rate of convergence of approximation processes.
The findings of the thesis demonstrate the potential for further research and development in these areas and the usefulness of combining these fields for solving complex problems in engineering and applied mathematics.
