  • Karlsson, Fredrik; Agerfalk, Par J. (2005)
    Method engineering approaches are often based on the assumption that method users are able to explicitly express their situational method requirements. However, similar to software requirements,situational method requirements ...
  • Yang, Hui; De Roeck, Anne; Willis, Alistair; Nuseibeh, Bashar (The Association for Computational Linguistics, 2010)
    Nocuous ambiguity occurs when a linguistic expression is interpreted differently by different readers in a given context. We present an approach to automatically identify nocuous ambiguity that is likely to lead to ...
  • Flood, Derek; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Casey, Valentine; Regan, Gilbert (Springer, 2013)
    Software process improvement initiatives offer many benefits in terms of productivity, cost savings and quality. As part of these initiatives or-ganisations undergo an assessment and then embark on a software process ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian (2005)
    Systems development methods are used to express and communicate knowledge about systems and software development processes; i.e. methods encapsulate knowledge. Since methods encapsulate knowledge, they also encapsulate ...
  • Khoshkbarforoushha, Alireza; Jamshidi, Pooyan; Nikravesh, Ali; Fereidoon, Shams (Springer-Verlag, 2011)
    BPEL processes are workflow-oriented composite services for service-oriented solutions. Rapidly changing environment and turbulent market conditions require flexible BPEL processes to adapt with several modifications during ...
  • Reidy, Clare (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2011)
    The aim of this thesis is to re-imagine how to treat the river’s edge and introduce new realistic and thoughtful ideas based on different ways of working with water that can help diminish the damage done by the power of ...
  • O'Dwyer, Ronan; Hu, Xuejun; Pelizzola, Mattia; Kolaj-Robin, Olga; Foti, Marti; Ricciardi-Castagnoli, Paola; Wall, J.G (BioMed Central, 2006)
    The production of heterologous proteins in E. coli is a powerful tool in the generation of many important biotechnological and medical products. Despite its widespread use as an expression host, however, yields of correctly ...
  • Piterina, Anna Valentinova (University of Limerick, 2010)
    Autothermal thermophilic aerobic digestion (ATAD) is a tertiary sludge processing technology occurring in jacketed, aerated reactors where the temperature increases from the mesophilic (40-50oC) to the thermophilic ...
  • Fox, Aaron (University of Limerick, 2013)
    Biochar amended soils have demonstrated various agronomic benefits, principally a plant growth promotion effect. The char’s impact, however, on macronutrient bio-availability and the microorganisms involved in their ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Kuzmickaja, Iiona; Stol, Klaas-Jan; Abrahamsson, Pekka; Fitzgerald, Brian (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Microblogging is one of the popular forms of social media that has quickly permeated both enterprise and open source communities. However, how exactly open source communities can leverage microblogging is not yet ...
  • O'Donnell, Terence; Wang, Ningning; Meere, Ronan; Rhen, Fernando M.F.; Roy, Saibal; O'Sullivan, Denis; Ó Mathúna, Cian (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    This paper presents the design and measured results for micro-fabricated inductors suitable for use in high frequency (> 10 MHz), low power (1 –2 W) dc-dc converters. The design has focused on maximizing inductor efficiency ...
  • Felea, Raluca; Gaburro, Romina; Nolan, Clifford J. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2013)
    In this article we consider four particular cases of Synthetic Aperture Radar imaging with moving objects. In each case, we analyze the forward operator F and the normal operator F∗F, which appear in the mathematical ...
  • Gaburro, Romina; Nolan, Clifford J. (Institute of Physics, 2008)
    We consider the problem of imaging a target located nearby a perfectly reflective vertical wall by making use of a SAR system in the case where a single pass is made over the scene of which we expect to be able to ...
  • Chadwick, E.G; Beloshapkin, Sergey; Tanner, D.A (Springer, 2012)
    Porous silicon finds numerous applications in the areas of bio-technology, drug delivery, energetic materials and catalysis. Recent studies by Vesta Sciences have led to the development of porous silicon nanosponge particles ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Neville, Karen (Informing Science Institute, 2002)
    The importance of information technology (IT) for modern business and, indeed, research in general cannot be questioned, as its sheer pervasiveness adequately attests. However, simplistic views of technological utopianism ...
  • Gray, Breda (Dublin City University, 2006)
    Integration and how it is to be achieved have only recently become objects of policy and discussion in Ireland. Approaches to integration in Ireland are influenced by: the integration policies of those countries with ...
  • Fitzgerald, Richard J.; Meisel, Hans (Cambridge University Press, 2000)
    Numerous casein and whey protein-derived angiotensin-I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptides/hydrolysates have been identified. Clinical trials in hypertensive animals and humans show that these peptides/hydrolysates ...
  • Hughes, Anthony (University of Limerick, Department of Education and Professional Studies, 2010)
    The elderly Learner who has had no previous experience with computers, has much to overcome in order to chose to take computer classes. Apart from negative past educational experiences and age related limitations, the ...
  • Bachir, Mounira; Touati, Sid-Ahmed-Ali; Brault, Frederic; Gregg, David; Cohen, Albert (Springer, 2013)
    We address the problem of generating compact code from software pipelined loops. Although software pipelining is a powerful technique to extract fine-grain parallelism, it generates lifetime intervals spanning multiple ...
  • O'Sullivan, Michelle; Wallace, Joseph (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011)
    This article examines the Irish variant of the Wages Councils, Joint Labour Committees (JLC), which set legally binding minimum pay and conditions for low-paid workers in some sectors. We trace the reasons for the continued ...
