  • Nash, Nicholas; Gregg, David (Elsevier, 2010)
    We present an output sensitive algorithm for computing a maximum independent set of an unweighted circle graph. Our algorithm requires O(n min{d, α}) time at worst, for an n vertex circle graph where α is the independence ...
  • Casey, Valentine; Deshpande, Sadhana; Richardson, Ita (Submitted to the Second Information Systems Workshop on Global Sourcing: Services, Knowledge and Innovation, 2010)
    Purpose: Our research rather than focusing on the requirements of Western based organisations outsourcing or offshoring software development considers the factors that are relevant for the recipients of this work and in ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian (Management Information Systems Research Center, University of Minnesota, 2008)
    This paper presents a psychological contract perspective on the use of the open source development model as a global sourcing strategy--opensourcing, as we term it here--whereby commercial companies and open source communities ...
  • Nakahara, S; Tanner, D.A; Khan, A.K; Robinson, J.S (Maney Publishing, 2011)
    A TEM study has revealed, for the first time, the presence of small (similar to 3 nm in diameter) voids attached to T(1) (Al(2)CuLi) precipitates present in an artificially aged Al-Cu-Li alloy (Al-2.90Cu-1.63Li-0.29Mg-0. ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Forde, Edward; Guiney, Ivor (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Ozone (03) is potentially hazardous to human health and accurate prediction and measurement of this gas is essential in addressing its associated health risks. This paper presents theory to predict the levels of ozone ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Hickey, Ger; Harris, John A.; Forde, Edward (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    This work investigates the ozone sensing properties of NbO2 thin films operating at room temperature. NbO2 thin films have been deposited on alumina and glass substrates provide with Cu interdigitated electrodes by the ...
  • Janota, Mikolas; Lynce, Inês; Manquinho, Vasco; Marques-Silva, Joao (IOS Press, 2012)
    This paper presents PackUp1. (PACKage UPgradability with Boolean formulations) a framework for solving the the software package upgradability problem. Earlier versions of the framework (cudf2msu, cudf2pbo) participated ...
  • Cfarku, Denada; Taher, Yehia; Haque, Rafiqul; Van den Heuvel, Willem-Jan; Papazoglou, Michael P (Springer, 2012)
    The increasing complexity of the business transaction results in a higher potential risk in terms of SLA violation. The fulfillment of the QoS constraints specified in global SLA can be threatened at any time by ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Ó Conchúir, Eoin; Vidgen, Richard (2008)
    An ongoing debate on agile methods focuses on the contradictions in software development, especially responding to change vs. following a plan, and people vs. processes. Unlike the ‘either-or’ perspective adopted in the ...
  • Kreutzer, Cornelia; Walker, Jacqueline; O'Neill, Michael (International Conference on Audio, Language and Image Processing (ICALIP), 2008)
    We introduce a reduced parameter synthesis model for the spectral synthesis of musical sounds, which preserves the timbre and the naturalness of the musical sound. It also provides large flexibility for the user and reduces ...
  • Moriarty, Briain (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    This essay initially examines how the body experiences place, and whether through an analysis of this, a new way of adding value to spaces of supermodernity can occur. Spaces of supermodernity include airports, motorways, ...
  • Hutton, Kieran W; Mitchell, Niall A; Frawley, Patrick (Elsevier, 2012)
    Numerical simulation of typical chemical engineering processes, such as crystallisation, liquid-liquid extraction, milling and other multi-phase operations in which exist discrete and continuous phases are highly computationally ...
  • Brosnan, Stephanie (University of Limerick, 2011)
    Total soil respiration (RTOT) has two components; heterotrophic (RH) and autotrophic (RA) respiration. We aim to partition the components of RTOT in a beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) forest using a trenching experiment. The ...
  • Ramsey, David (Elsevier, 2012)
    A model of partnership formation based on two traits, called beauty and character, is presented. There are two classes of individual and partners must be of di erent classes. Individuals prefer prospective partners with ...
  • Alpern, S; Katrantzi, I; Ramsey, David (Elsevier, 2013)
    We analyze a model of partnership formation in which players’ preferences are based on the age of a prospective partner. There are two classes of individuals, called for convenience here male and female. Males and females ...
  • Sullivan, Daniel K. (University of Limerick, 2010)
    This thesis examines how software professionals, working on a real software product, are aided by their work practices, on a daily basis, in dealing with the practical and local consequences of global distribution. We ...
  • Ahmad, Aakash; Pahl, Claus (European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics, 2012)
    Although architecture-centric maintenance and evolution is useful for adjusting software structure and behaviour at higher abstractions, this approach lacks the potential for systematic change reuse. The Pat-Evol project ...
  • Gacitua-Decar, Veronica; Pahl, Claus (2008)
    Service architectures are an increasingly adopted architectural approach for solving the Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) problem originated by business process automation requirements. In previous work, we developed ...
  • Ahmad, Aakash; Pahl, Claus (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Service-based architecture have now become commonplace, creating the need to address their systematic maintenance and evolution. We propose a layered pattern based transformation framework to support a stepwise and incremental ...
  • Ahmad, Aakash; Jamshidi, Pooyan; Pahl, Claus (2012)
    Service-based architectures implement business processes as technical software services to develop enterprise software. As a consequence of frequent business and technical change cycles, the architect requires a reusecentered ...
