  • Back, Helena; Weld, John; Walsh, Cathal Dominic (MDPI, 2019)
    The aim of this study was to identify respiratory viruses circulating amongst elite racehorses in a training yard by serological testing of serial samples and to determine their impact on health status and ability to race. ...
  • Nicoletti, Sara; Fanelli, Duccio; Zagli, Niccolò; Asllani, Malbor; Battistelli, Giorgio; Carletti, Timoteo; Chisci, Luigi; Innocenti, Giacomo; Livi, Roberto (AIP Publishing, 2019)
    A stochastic reaction-diffusion model is studied on a networked support. In each patch of the network, two species are assumed to interact following a non-normal reaction scheme. When the interaction unit is replicated ...
  • Benn, D. I.; Fowler, Andrew C.; Hewitt, I.; Sevestre, H. (Cambridge University Press, 2019)
    We present the first general theory of glacier surging that includes both temperate and polythermal glacier surges, based on coupled mass and enthalpy budgets. Enthalpy (in the form of thermal energy and water) is gained ...
  • Haynes, Matthew (University of Limerick, 2019)
    This thesis examines the static equilibrium shapes and stability of various capillary surfaces. The equilibrium shapes are accurately approximated using asymptotic series solutions in the micro-gravity limit. The stability ...
  • McInerney, Niall (University of Limerick, 2019)
    In the first part of this thesis, mathematical models describing solvent and drug diffusion in glassy polymers are investigated using both numerical and approximate methods. These models are analysed using formal ...
  • Burke, Kevin (University of Limerick, 2014)
    In general, parametric regression models can be motivated by allowing the parameters of a probability distribution to depend on covariates. Furthermore, it is standard practice to relate covariates to one parameter of ...
  • Koher, Andreas; Lentz, Hartmut H.K.; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2019)
    We present a contact-based model to study the spreading of epidemics by means of extending the dynamic message-passing approach to temporal networks. The shift in perspective from node- to edgecentric quantities enables ...
  • Faqeeh, Ali; Osat, Saeed; Radicchi, Filippo; Gleeson, James P. (2019)
    Experimental and computational studies provide compelling evidence that neuronal systems are characterized by power-law distributions of neuronal avalanche sizes. This fact is interpreted as an indication that these systems ...
  • Moroney, Kevin M.; O’Connell, Ken; Meikle-Janney, Paul; O’Brien, Stephen B.G.; Walker, Gavin M.; Lee, William T. (Public Library of Science, 2019)
    Achieving a uniform extraction of soluble material from a porous matrix is a generic problem in various separation and filtration operations, with applications in the food processing, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. ...
  • Hennessy, Matthew G.; Moyles, Iain R.; Thomson, Stuart J. (2019)
    Masson SAS Massecuite is a liquid mixture that is boiled to produce raw sugar. When formed from poor-quality sugar cane, massecuite can be difficult to boil, leading to factory shutdowns lasting several weeks. This ...
  • Vynnycky, Michael (MDPI, 2019)
    Continuous casting is a process whereby molten metal is solidified into a semi-finished billet, bloom, or slab for subsequent rolling in finishing mills; it is the most frequently used process to cast not only steel, but ...
  • Schneider, Éder Mílton; Gonçalves, Sebastián; Iglesias, José Roberto; Cunha, Bruno Requião da (SpringerOpen, 2019)
    We present a model for network transformation mediated by confinement, as a demonstration of a simple network dynamics that has a direct connection with real world quantities. The model has the capacity of generating ...
  • Zeglinski, Jacek; Kuhs, Manuel; Devi, Renuka K.; Khamar, Dikshitkumar; Hegarty, Avril C.; Thompson, Damien; Rasmuson, Åke C. (American Chemical Society, 2019)
    Induction time experiments, spectroscopic and calorimetric analysis, and molecular modelling were used to probe the influence of solvent on the crystal nucleation of fenoxycarb (FC), a medium-sized, flexible organic ...
  • O'Brien, Joseph D.; Dassios, Ioannis K.; Gleeson, James P. (IOP Publishing, 2019)
    A model for the spreading of online information or ‘memes’ on multiplex networks is introduced and analyzed using branching-process methods. The model generalizes that of (Gleeson et al 2016 Phys. Rev.X) in two ways. ...
  • Fowler, Andrew C. (Springer, 2019)
    In this paper we revisit the problem of explaining phase transition by a study of a form of the Boltzmann equation, where inter-molecular attraction is included by means of a Vlasov term in the evolution equation for the ...
  • Fennell, Peter G.; Gleeson, James P. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2019)
    Multistate dynamical processes on networks, where nodes can occupy one of a multitude of discrete states, are gaining widespread use because of their ability to recreate realistic, complex behavior that cannot be adequately ...
  • Holmes, Jonathan; Hayes, Kevin; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics in Sport, 2018)
    This study aimed to provide a method comparison of a rail mounted accelerometer for detection of block response-times (RT) with an International Association of Athletic Federation (IAAF) approved automatic start control ...
  • Crotty, Evan D.; Hayes, Kevin; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics in Sport, 2018)
    This study examined the delay in sprint start performance related to electromechanical delay (EMD) in the triceps surae muscle and aimed to determine whether sprinters may gain an advantage in sprint start response time ...
  • Benilov, Eugene; Benilov, M.S. (American Physical Society, 2019)
    An observation is presented that the ratio of the critical and triple-point temperatures T-cr/T-tp of neon, argon, krypton, and xenon fit within a narrow interval, T-cr/T-tp = 1.803 +/- 0.5%, and the same applies to the ...
  • O'Connor, Ray; O'Doherty, Jane; O'Regan, Andrew; O'Neill, Aoife; McMahon, Claire; Dunne, Colum P. (BMC, 2018)
    Objectives The purpose of this study was to examine the expectations of patients attending an urban primary care out-of-hours (OOH) facility with acute upper respiratory tract infection (acute URTI) regarding clinical ...
