  • Taher, Yehia; Haque, Rafiqul; Parkin, Michael; Richardson, Ita; Whelan, Eoin; Van den Heuvel, Willem-Jan (Springer-Verlag, 2011)
    The reusability of services is a cornerstone of the Service-Oriented Architecture design paradigm as it leads to a reduction in the costs associated with software development, integration and maintenance. However, reusability ...
  • Oates, Briony June; Fitzgerald, Brian (Blackwell Publishing Limited, 2007)
    Conventional methods have been criticized for their positivist philosophy and for either ignoring the organizational context of information systems development (ISD) or using only a simplistic, machine-based conceptual ...
  • Burke, Kevin; MacKenzie, Gilbert (IWSM, 2013)
    The proportional hazards (PH) assumption in survival analysis may not always be appropriate. If data do not obey the assumption then we will reach incorrect conclusions by making it. For example we may find a covariate to ...
  • Burke, Kevin; MacKenzie, Gilbert (IWSM, 2012)
    It is well known that the proportional hazards (PH) assumption is a simplifying assumption in survival analysis that may not always be appropriate. However, PH models are routinely fitted and inference is made on the ...
  • Dusparic, Ivana; Cahill, Vinny (IFAAMAS, 2009)
    This paper addresses the challenge of multi-policy optimization in decentralized autonomic systems. We evaluate several multi-policy reinforcement learning-based optimization techniques in an urban tra c control simulation, ...
  • Gunning, Robert D.; O'Sullivan, Catriona; Ryan, Kevin M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2010)
    A multi rate kinetic model to explain the spontaneous oriented attachment of CdS nanorods in the presence of an amine is presented. The model demonstrates the reasons that elongation is restricted to a maximum of quadruple ...
  • Guiry, John J.; van de Ven, Pepijn; Nelson, John (MDPI, 2014)
    In this paper, the authors investigate the role that smart devices, including smartphones and smartwatches, can play in identifying activities of daily living. A feasibility study involving N = 10 participants was carried ...
  • 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 ...
  • O'Sullivan, Catriona (University of Limerick, 2010)
    This thesis describes the sequential assembly of various components on to colloidal II-VI semiconductor nanorods. Semiconductor-semiconductor, semiconductor-metal and semiconductor-metal-molecule are attached to the ...
  • Solis, Carlos; Canos, Jose H.; Borges, Marcos R.S. (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    Collaborative writing and editing typically use annotations to coordinate edition tasks, comment the content, add relevant references, or clarify confusing content. Despite that wikis are among the most widely used hypertext ...
  • Connelly, Michael J.; Szecowka, Przemyslaw M.; Jallapuram, Raghavendra; Martin, Suzanne; Toal, Vincent; Whelan, Maurice P. (Optical Society of America, 2008)
    A laser Doppler vibrometer (LDV) is described in which holographic optical elements are used to provide the interferometer reference and object illumination beams. A complementary metal-oxide semiconductor camera, incorporating ...
  • Belov, Anton; Marques-Silva, Joao (IOS Press, 2012)
    Algorithms for extraction of Minimally Unsatisfiable Subformulas (MUSes) of CNF formulas find a wide range of practical applications, including product configuration, knowledge-based validation, hardware and software ...
  • Loughran, Roisin; Walker, Jacqueline; O'Neill, Michael; O'Farrell, Marion (International Conference on Audio, Language and Image Processing (ICALIP), 2008)
  • Staikopoulos, Athanasios; Saudrais, Sebastien; Clarke, Siobhán; Padget, Julian; Cliffe, Owen; DeVos, Marina (2008)
    In complex service-oriented systems, a number of layers of abstraction may be considered, in particular the models of the organisations involved, how interactions are coordinated and the services which are used and made ...
  • Ryan, Anna (AKAD, Stockholm, 2005)
    My window, in the house where I have been living for the past eleven months, looks across to a much larger house full of retired missionary priests. Sitting at my desk every day, I see the same navy jumper and head of ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Agerfalk, Par J. (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    Open Source Software (OSS) has attracted enormous media and research attention since the term was coined in February 1998. The concept itself is founded on the paradoxical premise that software source code—the ‘crown ...
  • Salaj-Kośla, Urszula (University of Limerick, 2012)
    Robust nanoporous gold electrodes were fabricated by sputtering a gold-silver alloy onto a glass support and subsequent dealloying of the silver component. Alloys were prepared with either a non-uniform or uniform ...
  • Mullane, Emma (University of Limerick, 2013)
    This thesis describes the formation of Si and Ge nanostructures using two growth systems. Chapter 3 details the controlled growth of Ge nanowires and nanorods using a surfactant-free hotplate based growth method. Control ...
  • Assini, Alicia Alexandra (University of Limerick, 2013)
    Presented in this thesis is the design, implementation and evaluation of a finite state morphological parser for Mohawk formal nouns. Utilizing the finite state morphology software designed by Beesely and Karttunen (2003) ...
  • Mc Caffery, Fergal; Coleman, Gerry (Praise Worthy Prize S.r.l., 2007)
    Software is becoming an increasingly important aspect of medical devices and medical device regulation. Software enables highly complex systems to be built. However, complexity is the enemy of safety, therefore strict ...
