  • 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; Svard, 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, ...
  • O'Neill, F; Condon, F; McGloughlin, Timothy M.; Lenehan, B; Coffey, C; Walsh, Michael T. (British Editorial Society of Bone and Joint Surgery, 2012)
    IntroductionThe objective of this study was to determine if a synthetic bone substitute would provide results similar to bone from osteoporotic femoral heads during in vitro testing with orthopaedic implants. If the synthetic ...
  • Dowling, Catríona M; Herranz Ors, Carmen; Kiely, Patrick A (Portland Press, 2014)
    Increasing our knowledge of the mechanisms regulating cell proliferation, migration and invasion are central to understanding tumour progression and metastasis. The local tumour microenvironment contributes to the ...
  • Bashar, Khalid; Healy, Donagh; Browne, Leonard D; Kheirelseid, Elrasheid A. H.; Walsh, Michael T.; Clarke – Moloney, Mary; Burke, Paul E.; Kavanagh, Eamon G; Walsh, Stewart Redmond (Public Library of Science, 2014)
    Introduction: A well-functioning arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the best modality for vascular access in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring haemodialysis (HD). However, AVFs' main disadvantage is the ...
  • Ron, Donit; Adams, David R; Baillie, George S; Long, Aideen; O'Connor, Rosemary; Kiely, Patrick A (BioMed Central, 2013)
    This perspective summarises the first and long overdue RACK1 meeting held at the University of Limerick, Ireland, May 2013, in which RACK1's role in the immune system, the heart and the brain were discussed and its ...
  • Karpinska, Jolanta; Kuhs, Manuel; Rasmuson, Åke C; Erxleben, Andrea; McArdle, Patrick (International Union of Crystallography, 2012)
    The title compound, C17H19NO4, which is a non-toxic insect growth regulator with the common name fenoxycarb, contains two independent and conformationally different molecules in the asymmetric unit. Although the inter-ring ...
