  • Murphy, Ellen (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Applied mathematicians have long sourced problems from industrial processes. The relationship between mathematics and industry is mutually beneficial. Mathematical models provide industry with invaluable insights into ...
  • Frohburg, Jan (Routledge: Taylor and Francis, 2012)
    Human action is shaping the earth on a geological scale. How can architects respond to the present-day imperative of maintaining liberty for the individual within a “landscape” understood as a global entity? The work ...
  • Flanagan, Sarah (University of Limerick, 2010)
    The work described in this report is a contribution to ongoing research to develop more effective orthopaedic joint systems though fundamental studies of the behaviour of various novel material combinations and component ...
  • Holfter, Gisela (Akademie Verlag GmbH, Berlin, 2012)

  • English, Michael; Buckley, Jim; Cahill, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    Previous research has highlighted the extensive use of the C++ friend construct in both library-based and application-based systems. However, existing software metrics do not concentrate on measuring friendship accurately, ...
  • O'Connor, Pat (New York: Harvester-Wheatsheaf, 1992)

  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Lane, Michael; Conboy, Kieran (Agile Alliance, 2011)
    In the last several years there has been a noticeable focus shift of agile methods from eXtreme Programming (XP) and Scrum to Lean approaches, which is indicated as “from agile to lean”. However our understanding of the ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Vidgen, Richard (Palgrave McMillan, 2006)
    New technologies, notably service oriented architectures and web services, are enabling a third wave of business process management (BPM). Supporters claim that BPM is informed by complexity theory and that business ...
  • Bresciani, Riccardo; Butterfield, Andrew (Springer, 2013)
    We have introduced probability in the UTP framework by using functions from the state space to real numbers, which we term distributions, that are embedded in the predicates describing the di er- ent program constructs. ...
  • Adshead, Maura; McInerney, Chris (Brotherhood of St.Laurence & Centre for Public Policy, Univesity of Melbourne, 2009)
    International (Considine & Giguere 2008) and Australian (Smyth, Reddel & Jones 2005) interest in the place of associations and partnerships to create more inclusive governance forms continues unabated. In this paper we ...
  • Elmusharaf, Khalifa; Tahir, Hanan; O’Donovan, Diarmuid; Brugha, Ruairi; Homeida, Mamoun; Abbas, Amal M.O; Bryne, Elaine (BioMed Central, 2016)
    Background: There is a substantial body of literature on the principles of good partnerships and the rationale for such partnerships in research capacity strengthening. This paper illustrates the long term effects of a ...
  • Feller, Joseph; Finnegan, Patrick; Fitzgerald, Brian; Hayes, Jeremy (INFORMS, 2008)
    Peer production phenomena such as open source software (OSS) have been posited as a viable alternative to traditional production models. However, community-based development often falls short of creating software “products” ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Coyle, Lorcan; O'Hare, G.M.P.; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Mobile sensors are an attractive proposition for environmental sensing, but pose significant engineering problems. Not least amongst these is the need to match the behaviour of the sensor platform to the physical environment ...
  • Bowles, Richard G (University of Limerick, 2014)
    The teaching of Gaelic games during physical education (PE) and extra-curricular sport features prominently in Irish primary schools. There is a long tradition of teacher commitment to the promotion of these games with a ...
  • Coleman, Honor (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2014)
    My thesis began with an interest in finding various differences and commonalities in the fields of science and architecture. I have always been interested by the seemingly fast paced progression of science and technology ...
  • Mancini, Clara; Thomas, Keerthi; Rogers, Yvonne; Price, Blaine A.; Jedrzejczyk, Lukasz; Bandara, Arosha K.; Joinson, Adam N.; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    Mobile privacy concerns are central to Ubicomp and yet remain poorly understood. We advocate a diversified approach, enabling the cross-interpretation of data from complementary methods. However, mobility imposes a number ...
  • Power, Martin J.; Haynes, Amanda; Devereux, Eoin (School of Media, Dublin Institute of Technology, 2012)
    International research indicates that recessionary periods may be accompanied by a decline in the quality of relations between the majority population and migrant groups as the latter are at risk of being scapegoated for ...
  • Costin, Yvonne; Drakopoulou Dodd, Sarah; Hynes, Briga; Lichrou, Maria (IP Publishing Ltd.,, 2013)
    There is scope for a better understanding of the development of entrepreneurial competences in students through experiential learning pedagogies by engaging them with the entrepreneurs in the entrepreneurs’ habitats. ...
  • van Tilburg, Wijnand A.P.; Igou, Eric Raymond (Wiley & Sons, 2014)
    We examined the impact of eccentricity on the evaluation of artistic skills and the quality of artworks. Based on the notion that artists are typically perceived as eccentric, creative and skilled, we tested the hypothesis ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Sterritt, Roy; Nixon, Paddy; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Efforts since 2001 to design self-managing systems have yielded many impressive achievements, yet the original vision of autonomic computing remains unfulfilled. Researchers must develop a comprehensive systems engineering ...
