  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2008)
    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)]. ...
  • Walsh, Ed J; Davies, Mark R.D; McEligot, Donald M (MDPI, 2004)
    Boundary layer transition is a critical parameter in the design of fluid flow systems. This situation is due to the dramatic change in both entropy production and heat transfer that accompanies it. It is well recognized ...
  • Bashar, Khalid; Healy, Donagh A; Elsheikh, Sawsan; Browne, Leonard D; Walsh, Michael T; Clarke-Moloney, Mary; Burke, Paul E; Kavanagh, Eamon G; Walsh, Stewart R (Public Library of Science, 2015)
    A brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula (BB-AVF) can provide access for haemodialysis in patients who are not eligible for a more superficial fistula. However, it is unclear whether one or two-stage BB-AVF is the best option ...
  • Pastorino, Laura; Dellacasa, Elena; Noor, Mohamed R; Souliman, Tewfik; Bianchini, Paolo; D’Autilia, Francesca; Antipov, Alexei; Diaspro, Alberto; Tofail, Syed A.M.; Ruggiero, Carmelina (Public Library of Science, 2014)
    Cell-sized polyelectrolyte capsules functionalized with a redox-driven proton pump protein were assembled for the first time. The interaction of polyelectrolyte microcapsules, fabricated by electrostatic layer-by-layer ...
  • O'Shea, Sean D; Smith, Imelda M; McCabe, Olive M; Cronin, Michelle M; Walsh, Dominic M; O'Connor, William T. (MDPI, 2008)
    Extensive evidence supports an important role for soluble oligomers of the amyloid. beta-protein (A beta) in Alzheimer's Disease pathogenesis. In the present study we combined intracerebroventricular (icv) injections with ...
  • Kuhs, Manuel; Zeglinski, Jacek; Rasmuson, Åke C (American Chemical Society, 2014)
    Nearly 1800 induction time experiments have been performed on crystal nucleation of fenoxycarb in isopropanol to investigate the influence of solution pretreatment. For each preheating temperature and preheating time, ...
  • Kuhs, Manuel; Svärd, Michael; Rasmuson, Åke C (Elsevier, 2013)
    The solubility of fenoxycarb has been determined between 278 and 318 K in several organic solvents. The solid phase at equilibrium and some indication of polymorphism has been properly examined by powder XRD, DSC, Raman ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Cunnane, Eoghan M; Mulvihill, John J; Barrett, Hilary E; Walsh, Michael T (BioMed Central, 2015)
    Background: Due to the limited number of experimental studies that mechanically characterise human atherosclerotic plaque tissue from the femoral arteries, a recent trend has emerged in current literature whereby one set ...
  • Barrett, Hilary E; Mulvihill, John J; Cunneen, Eoghan M; Walsh, Michael T. (BioMed Central, 2015)
    Calcification is a marked pathological component in carotid artery plaque. Studies have suggested that calcification may induce regions of high stress concentrations therefore increasing the potential for rupture. However, ...
