 N. Leonenko, I. Papić, A. Sikorskii, N. Šuvak, Correlated continuous time random walks and fractional Pearson diffusions, Bernoulli 24/4B (2018), 36033627Continuous time random walks have random waiting times between particle jumps. We define the correlated continuous time random walks (CTRWs) that converge to fractional Pearson diffusions (fPDs). The jumps in these CTRWs are obtained from Markov chains through the Bernoulli urnscheme model and WrightFisher model. The jumps are correlated so that the limiting processes are not Lévy but diffusion processes with nonindependent increments. The waiting times are selected from the domain of attraction of a stable law.
 N. Leonenko, I. Papić, A. Sikorskii, N. Šuvak, EhrenfestBrillouintype correlated continuous time random walk and fractional Jacobi diffusion, Theory of Probability and Mathematical Statistics (2018), prihvaćen za objavljivanjeContinuous time random walks (CTRWs) have random waiting times between particle jumps. Based on EhrenfestBrillouintype model motivated by economics, we define the correlated CTRW that converge to the fractional Jacobi diffusion Y (E(t)), t ≥ 0, defined as a time change of Jacobi diffusion process Y (t) to the inverse E(t) of the standard stable subordinator. In the CTRW considered in this paper, the jumps are correlated so that in the limit the outer process Y (t) is not a Lévy process but a diffusion process with nonindependent increments. The waiting times between jumps are selected from the domain of attraction of a stable law, so that the correlated CTRWs with these waiting times converge to Y (E(t))
 N. Leonenko, I. Papić, A. Sikorskii, N. Šuvak, Heavytailed fractional Pearson diffusions, Stochastic Processes and their Applications 127/11 (2017), 35123535We define heavytailed fractional reciprocal gamma and FisherSnedecor diffusions by a non Markovian time change in the corresponding Pearson diffusions. Pearson diffusions are governed by the backward Kolmogorov equations with spacevarying polynomial coefficients and are widely used in applications. The corresponding fractional reciprocal gamma and FisherSnedecor diffusions are governed by the fractional backward Kolmogorov equations and have heavytailed marginal distributions in the steady state. We derive the explicit expressions for the transition densities of the fractional reciprocal gamma and FisherSnedecor diffusions and strong solutions of the associated Cauchy problems for the fractional backward Kolmogorov equation.
 N. Graovac, I. Papić, E. Merdić, Pupil’s DietRelated Attitudes to Healthy Lifestyle, Journal of Environmental Science and Engineering A 4 (2015), 651664The main purpose of this article was to find out more about eating habits along with other habits, attitudes and activities of elementary school pupils. Another aim was to determine possible differences among pupils, depending on their sex, age and environment. Furthermore, based on the anthropometric data (body mass and height) and age, this article was to determine the nutritional status of pupils. The research was conducted via questionnaire constructed for the needs of this specific research. Six hundred and fiftyone pupils took part in this questionnaire in a ratio of 41:59 urban/rural and 51:49 girls/boys. Most of the interviewed pupils (73.88%) have normal body mass according to their age. The share of underweight and overweight pupils is bigger among the boys. Nutritional habits differ among pupils from the urban and rural areas, but they do not differ as much among boys and girls. In addition, their nutritional habits become worse as they grow up.
