  • McCullagh, Gavin D; Cellai, Davide; Lawlor, Aonghus; Dawson, Kenneth A (2005)
    We extend a previously studied lattice model of particles with infinite repulsions to the case of finite-energy interactions. The phase diagram is studied using grand canonical Monte Carlo simulation. Simulations of dynamical ...
  • Monaghan, Sinead; Lavelle, Jonathan; Gunnigle, Patrick (Taylor and Francis, 2017)
    The dynamic interaction between locational attributes and foreign direct investment (FDI) is an important condition for successful economic activity. Yet while significant research has identified the integral role of ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Bailey, Eoin; Knox, Stephen; Shannon, Ross; Quigley, Aaron; SFI (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Control systems must increasingly be designed to involve collections of hardware and software components, both of which may evolve over the lifetime of the system, and which are expected to provide self-managing, adaptive, ...
  • O'Connor, Ciara; Philip, Roy K; Kelleher, John; Powell, James; O'Gorman, Alan; Slevin, Barbara; Woodford, Neil; Turton, Jane F; McGrath, Elaine; Finnegan, Cathriona; Power, Lorraine; O'Connell, Nuala H; Dunne, Colum (BioMed Central, 2017)
    Background: Escherichia coli (E. coli) comprise part of the normal vaginal microflora. Transfer from mother to neonate can occur during delivery resulting, sometimes, in neonatal bacterial disease. Here, we aim to report ...
  • Power, Rachel; Linnane, Barry; Martin, Ruth; Power, Noelle; Harnett, Peig; Casserly, Brian; O'Connell, Nuala H; Dunne, Colum (BioMed Central, 2016)
    Background: Burkholderia contaminans is an emerging pathogen in the cystic fibrosis (CF) setting. Included in the Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc), B. contaminans is a Gram negative, motile, obligate aerobe previously ...
  • McHugh, Fearghal; Acton, Thomas (Center for Innovations in Business & Management Practice (CIBMP), 2012)
    The fast, unstructured and turbulent nature of decision making in agile software development (ASD) teams at times necessitates software-based support tools (Dabrowski, Acton, Drury, Conboy, and Dabrowska, 2011). The demands ...
  • Buglione, Luigi; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Hauck, Jean Carlo R.; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane (Springer, 2012)
    One of the main challenges for ICT organizations is to initiate a well-structured process improvement program. This is particularly the case when adopting a maturity & capability model (MCM) as it brings with it costs ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Slaughter, Sandra A.; Agerfalk, Par J. (INFORMS (Institute for Operations Research and Management Sciences), 2006)
    In recent years, considerable research attention has been devoted to process flexibility and globally distributed IS development. The quest for flexibility is evident in the development of various agile methods, such as ...
  • Toal, Daniel; Nolan, Seán Patrick; Riordan, James; Omerdic, Edin (Society for Underwater Technology, 2009)
    This paper describes the ROVLATIS , a multi-mode of operation flexible platform for high-resolution near-seabed survey from shallow inshore waters to depths beyond 1000m. The paper further describes the operation modes ...
  • Keane, Eddie (Intersentia, 2016)
    This article discusses the implementation of the flexicurity system in Ireland. As the percentage of dependent employees in temporary employment in Ireland grew from 5.3% in 2002 to 10.2% in 2012, it is clear that fl exible ...
  • Buckley, Jim; Rosik, Jacek; Herold, Sebastian; Wasala, Asanka; Botterweck, Goetz; Exton, Chris (Association for Computing Machinery, 2016)
    Reflexion Modeling has been proposed as a means of creating and refining a functional model of software systems at the architectural level. Such a model allows developers to maintain a consistent understanding of the ...
  • Donlan, Seán Patrick; Kennedy, Rónán (2005)
    The Interpretation Act 2005 consolidates previous legislation and contains some new provisions inspired by a Law Reform Commission report. These may bring about a subtle but significant change in the methods of statutory ...
  • Bergel, Alexandre (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Wireless sensor networks necessitate a programming model different from those used to develop desktop applications. Typically, resources in terms of power and memory are constrained. C is the most common programming language ...
  • Desmond, Michael; Storey, Margaret-Anne (2006)
    The use of modern programming paradigms and technologies,such as object orientation, inheritance, polymorphism and aspect orientation, facilitate a number of important software engineeringbenefits. Concerns can be better ...
  • Moloney David S; Callanan, Anthony; Kavanagh, Eamon G; Walsh, Michael T.; McGloughlin, Timothy M. (BioMed Central, 2009)
    Background: Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are local dilatations of the infrarenal aorta. If left untreated they may rupture and lead to death. One form of treatment is the minimally invasive insertion of a stent-graft ...
  • MacNally, Catriona (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Many studies have investigated whether non-verbal skills such as gesture are reliable early markers of later language delay, for example, Rowe and Goldin-Meadow (2009); Chiat and Roy (2008). Researchers such as Reilly et ...
  • Xue, Gang (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Miscanthus×giganteus (M×G), a typical bioenergy crop, has been widely planted in Ireland. But the virgin miscanthus is considered as a low grade fuel. The aim of this study is to investigate a method to (a) upgrade the ...
  • Doody, Owen; Slevin, Eamonn; Taggart, Laurence (Mark Allen Healthcare, 2012)
    Focus groups are used by researchers in the social and behavioural sciences to explore phenomena and are accepted as a legitimate qualitative methodology. The primary goal of focus groups is to use interaction data resulting ...
  • Doody, Owen; Slevin, Eamonn; Taggart, Laurence (Mark Allen Healthcare, 2013)
    The use of focus group interviews as a means of qualitative data collection has gained popularity in health service research in recent years. Despite their popularity, analysing qualitative data—particularly focus-group ...
