  • Murray, Derek M (University of Limerick, 2013)
    The design specifications for power converters are getting continuously tighter, keeping pace with the ever-increasing power requirements of the loads they supply. A step-down DC-DC converter used in modern computing ...
  • Torre, Giuseppe (2020)
    With respect to digital technologies, noise is something that is at once both fought and sought. We may wish to minimise noise in communications but require it for encrypting the very con- tent communicated. We may wish ...
  • Rossitto, Chiara; Pinatti de Carvalho, Aparecido Fabiano; Ciolfi, Luigina; Lampinen, Airi; Gray, Breda (IISI – Internationales Institut für Sozio-Informatik, 2017)
    In this issue we explore the conceptual, analytical and design challenges inherent in the notion of “Nomadic Culture”. The papers included highlight how research on mobility has contributed to the CSCW community, while ...
  • de Carvalho, Aparecido Fabiano Pinatti; Rossitto, Chiara; Lampinen, Airi; Ciolfi, Luigina; Gray, Breda (IISI - International Institute for Socio-Informatics, 2017)

  • O'Toole, Tina (Carysfort Press, 2008)
    Over the past ten years, a number of major scholarly projects based in Ireland have sought by original research to make visible women’s contribution to culture and society, and have focused critical attention on the ...
  • Avram, Gabriela (IISI – Internationales Institut für Sozio-Informatik, 2017)
    This paper takes an auto-ethnographic approach, focusing on my own nomadic work practices as part of a sabbatical year. A diary excerpt is used to illustrate an example of working “anywhere, anytime” motivated partly by ...
  • George, Elena S.; Roberts, Stuart K.; Nicoll, Amanda J.; Reddy, Anjana; Paris, Tonya; Itsiopoulos, Catherine; Tierney, Audrey C. (Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2018)
    Background: Non‐ alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the commonest liver disease globally with increased rates in high risk populations including type 2 diabetes and obesity. The condition increases the risk of end ...
  • Halton-Hand, Ailish (University of Limerick, 2016)
    Background: The dominant theories explaining non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) focus on emotion regulation and stress reduction. International research confirms that the onset age for NSSI is between 12 and 15 years, with ...
  • Mahdi, Abdulhussain E.; Faggion, Lorenzo (IOP Publishing, 2011)
    This paper describes a new low-cost, low-noise displacement current sensor developed for non-contact measurements of human biopotentials and well suited for detection of human presence applications. The sensor employs a ...
  • Fairclough, Stuart J.; McGrane, Bronagh; Sanders, George J.; Taylor, Sarah L.; Owen, Michael B.; Curry, Whitney B. (BioMed Central, 2016)
    Background: PE lessons are the formal opportunity in schools for promotion of physical activity and fitness. This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of a pilot PE intervention on physical activity, fitness, and ...
  • Timm, Ulrich (University of Limerick, 2011)
    During the perioperative period, which includes the period before surgery (preoperative), during surgery (intraoperative) and after surgery (postoperative), it is essential to measure diagnostic parameters such as: blood ...
  • Timm, Ulrich; Leen, Gabriel; Lewis, Elfed; McGrath, D.; Kraitl, J.; Ewald, Hartmut (Elsevier, 2010)
    Hemoglobin (Hb) is an important component of red blood cells. The primary function of Hb is to transport oxygen from the lungs to the body tissues and to carry carbon dioxide back to the lungs from the body tissues. The ...
  • Chwastyk, Mateusz; Vera, Andrés M.; Galera-Prat, Albert; Gunnoo, Melissabye; Thompson, Damien; Carrión-Vázquez, Mariano; Cieplak, Marek (AIP Publishing, 2017)
    We combine experimental and theoretical methods to assess the effect of a set of point mutations on c7A, a highly mechanostable type I cohesin module from scaffoldin CipA from Clostridium thermocellum. We propose a novel ...
  • Al-tawarah, Yasin; MacKenzie, Gilbert (IWSM, 2003)
    In longitudinal studies with a set of continuous or ordinal repeated response variables it may be convenient to summarize the outcome as a threshold event. Then, the time to this event becomes of interest. In this paper ...
  • MacKenzie, Gilbert; Do Ha, II; Lee, Youngjo (IWSM, 2003)
    Correlated survival times may be modelled by introducing a random effect, or frailty, component into the hazard function. For multivariate survival data we extend a non-PH model, the generalized time-dependent logistic (GTDL) ...
  • MacKenzie, Gilbert; Al-tawarah, Yasin; Blagojevic, Milisa; Burke, Kevin (IWSM, 2018)
    Non-PH parametric survival modelling is developed within the frame- work of the multiple logistic function. The family considered comprises three basic models: (a) a PH model, (b) an accelerated life model and (c) a model ...
  • Al-tawarah, Yasin; MacKenzie, Gilbert (IWSM, 2005)
    In this paper we investigate the use of accelerated Weibull hazard model. We compare it with Logistic Accelerated Hazard model. The models are used to analyze survival data from the Northern Ireland lung cancer study ...
  • Donovan, J; Murphy, Eamonn (Irish Statistical Association, 2007)
    Commercial irradiation typically involves applying electron beam or gamma radiation to a product with a view to sterilizing the product and killing any bacteria present. This is extremely important in the medical ...
  • Adera, Solomon; Raj, Rishi; Enright, Ryan; Wang, Evelyn N. (Nature Publishing Group, 2013)
    Controlling wettability by varying surface chemistry and roughness or by applying external stimuli is of interest for a wide range of applications including microfluidics, drag reduction, self-cleaning, water harvesting, ...
  • Tierney, Áine P. (University of Limerick, 2012)
    Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAAs) is a permanent and irreversible dilation of the infrarenal section of the aorta. AAA’s are generally asymptomatic, until rupture of the AAA wall occurs. Rupture can lead to large abdominal ...
