    The mean size of unordered binary avalanches on infinite directed random networks may be determined using the damage propagation function introduced by [B. Samuelsson and J. E. S. Socolar, Phys. Rev. E 74, 036113 (2006)]. ...
  • Hackett, Adam W.; Melnik, Sergey; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2011)
    We present an analytical approach to determining the expected cascade size in a broad range of dynamical models on the class of random networks with arbitrary degree distribution and nonzero clustering introduced previously ...
  • Hackett, Adam W.; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2013)
    We present an analytical approach to determining the expected cascade size in a broad range of dynamical models on the class of highly clustered random graphs introduced by Gleeson [J. P. Gleeson, Phys. Rev. E 80, 036107 ...
  • Gleeson, James P.; Melnik, Sergey; Hackett, Adam W. (American Physical Society, 2010)
    The question of how clustering (nonzero density of triangles) in networks affects their bond percolation threshold has important applications in a variety of disciplines. Recent advances in modeling highly clustered networks ...
  • Melnik, Sergey; Ward, Jonathan A; Gleeson, James P.; Porter, Mason A (American Institute of Physics, 2013)
    The spread of ideas across a social network can be studied using complex contagion models, in which agents are activated by contact with multiple activated neighbors. The investigation of complex contagions can provide ...
  • Melnik, Sergey; Porter, Mason A; Mucha, Peter J; Gleeson, James P. (American Institute of Physics, 2014)
    We develop a new ensemble of modular random graphs in which degree-degree correlations can be different in each module, and the inter-module connections are defined by the joint degree-degree distribution of nodes for each ...
  • Melnik, Sergey; Hackett, Adam W.; Porter, Mason A; Mucha, Peter J; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2011)
    We demonstrate that a tree-based theory for various dynamical processes operating on static, undirected networks yields extremely accurate results for several networks with high levels of clustering. We find that such a ...
  • Cellai, Davide; López, Eduardo; Zhou, Jie; Gleeson, James P.; Bianconi, Ginestra (American Physical Society, 2013)
    From transportation networks to complex infrastructures, and to social and communication networks, a large variety of systems can be described in terms of multiplexes formed by a set of nodes interacting through different ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2011)
    Binary-state dynamics (such as the susceptible-infected-susceptible (SIS) model of disease spread, or Glauber spin dynamics) on random networks are accurately approximated using master equations. Standard mean-field and ...
  • Gleeson, James P.; Ward, Jonathan A; O'Sullivan, Kevin P; Lee, William T. (American Physical Society, 2014)
    Heavy-tailed distributions of meme popularity occur naturally in a model of meme diffusion on social networks. Competition between multiple memes for the limited resource of user attention is identified as the mechanism ...
  • Gleeson, James P.; Melnik, Sergey; Ward, Jonathan A; Porter, Mason A; Murcha, Peter J (American Physical Society, 2012)
    Mean-field analysis is an important tool for understanding dynamics on complex networks. However, surprisingly little attention has been paid to the question of whether mean-field predictions are accurate, and this is ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2002)
    A quadrature expression is derived for the probability density function of passive tracers advected from a point by a one-dimensional, single-scale, Gaussian velocity field. The effect of trapping on the tracer moments and ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2002)
    Recently Vlad et al. [Phys. Rev. E. 63, 066304 (2001)] applied the method of decorrelation trajectories to the transport of tracers in stochastic velocity fields with constant drift, and found that the average ...
  • Cellai, Davide; Lawlor, Aonghus; Dawson, Kenneth A; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2013)
    k-core percolation is a percolation model which gives a notion of network functionality and has many applications in network science. In analyzing the resilience of a network under random damage, an extension of this model ...
  • Fennell, Peter G; Gleeson, James P.; Cellai, Davide (American Physical Society, 2014)
    Facilitated spin models were introduced some decades ago to mimic systems characterized by a glass transition. Recent developments have shown that a class of facilitated spin models is also able to reproduce characteristic ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2013)
    A wide class of binary-state dynamics on networks-including, for example, the voter model, the Bass diffusion model, and threshold models-can be described in terms of transition rates (spin-flip probabilities) that depend ...
  • O'Connor, R; Mannix, M; Mullen, J; Powys, L; Mannion, M; Nolan, H.A; Kearney, E; Cullen, Walter; Griffin, M; Saunders, Jean (Irish Medical Organization, 2013)
    This qualitative study explored general practitionerâ s and practice nurseâ s perceptions of barriers and facilitators to the proposed transfer of diabetes care to general practice. Qualitative data were collected ...

    Objectives: (1) To appraise and synthesize the literature on dance interventions for individuals with Parkinson disease (PD); (2) to provide information regarding the frequency, intensity, duration, and type of dance used ...
  • Cummins, Cathal Pádraig (University of Limerick, 2014)
    In the first part of the thesis, the evolution of a three-dimensional liquid drop on an inclined substrate oscillating vertically is examined. The oscillations are assumed to be weak and slow, which effectively makes the ...
