  • 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 ...
  • Wijaya, Christian (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Aortic tissue exhibits highly nonlinear elastic and anisotropic mechanical behaviour. Those characteristics are provided by its constituents such as collagen and elastin. Yet the mechanisms of deformation of this material ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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; Jamshidi, Pooyan; Pahl, Claus; Khaliq, Fawad (2013)
    Modern software systems are prone to a continuous evolution under frequently varying requirements. Architecture-centric software evolution enables change in system structure and behavior while maintaining a global view of ...
  • 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 ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Gilmartin, Stephen L.; Arshak, Arousian; Collins, Damien; Korostynska, Olga (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    The 2-step negative resist image by dry etching (2-step NERIME) focused ion beam (FIB) top surface imaging (TSI) process has been previously reported as an excellent technique for patterning nanometer scale features ...
  • Conboy, Kieran; Coyle, Sharon; Wang, Xiaofeng; Pikkarainen, Minna (2011)
    There is a common perception that, while there may be some ‘teething’ problems experienced during the initial transition to agile, people are much happier, engaged and ultimately more productive in these environments. This ...
  • Conboy, Kieran; Coyle, Sharon (Dauphine University Press, 2009)
    Agile approaches to information systems development have become increasingly popular in recent years, as more and more IS organisations are eager to capitalise on the alleged opportunities and benefits they provide. ...
  • 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 ...
