  • Fennell, Peter G (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Networks are everywhere. From social networks to ecological networks, transportation networks to the World Wide Web, the existence of groups of units that are interconnected in some manner is ubiquitous in our modern-day ...
  • Dassios, Ioannis; Cuffe, Paul; Keane, Andrew (2015)
    Electrical power system calculations rely heavily on the Y_{bus} matrix, which is the Laplacian matrix of the network under study, weighted by the complex-valued admittance of each branch. It is often useful to partition ...
  • Dassios, Ioannis; Zimbidis, Alexandros; Kontzalis, Charalambos (Springer, 2014)
    This paper extends the classical Samuelson multiplier–accelerator model for national economy. Actually, this new modeling structure removes the basic shortcoming of the original model producing stable business cycles when ...
  • Walsh, Richard (University of Limerick, 2015)
    There is widespread acknowledgement that students in second and third level education have diffculty with trigonometry. This is not only the case domestically in Ireland, but also internationally. Evidence exists ...
  • O'Keeffe, Mary; Purtill, Helen; Kennedy, Norelee; O'Sullivan, Peter; Dankaerts, Wim; Tighe, Aidan; Allworthy, Lars; Donlan, Louise; Bargary, Norman; O'Sullivan, Kieran (BMJ Publishing Group, 2015)
    Introduction: Non-specific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP) is a very common and costly musculoskeletal disorder associated with a complex interplay of biopsychosocial factors. Cognitive functional therapy (CFT) represents ...
  • Benilov, Eugene; Cummins, C.P (American Institute of Physics, 2013)
    We study the stability of a static liquid column rising from an infinite pool, with its top attached to a horizontal plate suspended at a certain height above the pool's surface. Two different models are employed for the ...
  • Vynnycky, Michael; Masuda, Y (American Institute of Physics, 2013)
    The problem of fast viscous steady Rayleigh-Bénard convection in a rectangular enclosure is revisited using asymptotic and numerical methods. There are two generic cases: in the first, there is zero shear stress at all ...
  • Kyrke-Smith, T.M; Katz, R.F; Fowler, Andrew (Interntional Glaciological Society, 2013)
    One challenge in improving our understanding of ice-stream dynamics is to develop models of the spatial and temporal transition from ice-sheet to ice-stream flow. We address this with a new, vertically integrated, higher-order ...

    The mean size of unordered binary avalanches on infinite directed random networks may be determined using the damage propagation function introduced by [B. Samuelsson and J. E. S. Socolar, Phys. Rev. E 74, 036113 (2006)]. ...
  • McCormack, Jean; Casey, Vincent; Conway, Richard; Saunders, Jean; Perry, Alison (BioMed Central, 2015)
    Background: Commercially available tools for measuring oro-lingual pressures during swallowing or isometric (tongue 'pushing') tasks have either poor, or unknown, psychometric properties (stability, reliability) which means ...
  • Hackett, Adam W.; Melnik, Sergey; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2011)
    We present an analytical approach to determining the expected cascade size in a broad range of dynamical models on the class of random networks with arbitrary degree distribution and nonzero clustering introduced previously ...
  • Hackett, Adam W.; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2013)
    We present an analytical approach to determining the expected cascade size in a broad range of dynamical models on the class of highly clustered random graphs introduced by Gleeson [J. P. Gleeson, Phys. Rev. E 80, 036107 ...
  • Gleeson, James P.; Melnik, Sergey; Hackett, Adam W. (American Physical Society, 2010)
    The question of how clustering (nonzero density of triangles) in networks affects their bond percolation threshold has important applications in a variety of disciplines. Recent advances in modeling highly clustered networks ...
  • 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 ...
  • Melnik, Sergey; Porter, Mason A; Mucha, Peter J; Gleeson, James P. (American Institute of Physics, 2014)
    We develop a new ensemble of modular random graphs in which degree-degree correlations can be different in each module, and the inter-module connections are defined by the joint degree-degree distribution of nodes for each ...
  • Melnik, Sergey; Hackett, Adam W.; Porter, Mason A; Mucha, Peter J; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2011)
    We demonstrate that a tree-based theory for various dynamical processes operating on static, undirected networks yields extremely accurate results for several networks with high levels of clustering. We find that such a ...
  • 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 ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2011)
    Binary-state dynamics (such as the susceptible-infected-susceptible (SIS) model of disease spread, or Glauber spin dynamics) on random networks are accurately approximated using master equations. Standard mean-field and ...
  • Gleeson, James P.; Ward, Jonathan A; O'Sullivan, Kevin P; Lee, William T. (American Physical Society, 2014)
    Heavy-tailed distributions of meme popularity occur naturally in a model of meme diffusion on social networks. Competition between multiple memes for the limited resource of user attention is identified as the mechanism ...
