  • Balbi, Valentina; Destrade, Michel; Goriely, Alain (American Physical Society, 2020)
    Organoids are prototypes of human organs derived from cultured human stem cells. They provide a reliable and accurate experimental model to study the physical mechanisms underlying the early developmental stages of human ...
  • Cullinane, Ann; Gahan, Jacinta; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Nemoto, Manabu; Entenfellner, Johanna; Olguin-Perglione, Cecilia; Garvey, Marie; Huang Fu, Tao Qi; Venne, Monica (MDPI, 2020)
    To facilitate the temporary importation of horses for competition and racing purposes, with a minimum risk of transmitting equine influenza, the World Organisation for Animal Health (Office International des Epizooties, ...

    Background Modelling studies have been widely used to inform human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination policy decisions; however, many models exist and it is not known whether they produce consistent predictions of population-level ...
  • Carroll, Louise M.; Volpe, Daniele; Morris, Meg E.; Saunders, Jean; Clifford, Amanda M. (Elsevier, 2017)
    Objective To evaluate the effects of aquatic exercise therapy on gait variability and disability compared with usual care for people with Parkinson disease (PD). Design Single-blind randomized controlled ...
  • O'Neill, Aoife; O'Sullivan, Kieran; O'Keeffe, Mary; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Purtill, Helen (Wiley and Sons Ltd.,, 2020)
    Background Pain is common in older adults, and associated with increased morbidity and reduced quality of life. Recent research has highlighted different classes of older adults with pain, each with differing impacts ...
  • O'Shea, Pádraig (University of Limerick, 2019)
    Traditional algorithms for modelling functional data use derivative-based optimisation methods to fit parameters. The process of finnding the derivatives of the fitting criterion with respect to the parameters is complex. ...
  • Cassidy, Ailbhe (University of Limerick, 2019)
    We live in a world surrounded by networks. They are ubiquitous. Be it social media networks linking us to our friends, transportation networks interconnecting locations around the globe, or the metabolic network breaking ...
  • Leahy, Joy; Walsh, Cathal Dominic (Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2019)
    if IPD is available for some or all trials in an NMA, then incorporating this IPD into an NMA is routinely considered to be preferable. However, the situation often arises where a researcher has IPD for trials concerning ...
  • Lourenço, Célia; Kelly, Darren; Cantillon, Jack; Cauchi, Michael; Yon, Marianne A.; Bentley, Liz; Cox, Roger D.; Turner, Claire (Nature Research, 2019)
    The analysis of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as a non-invasive method for disease monitoring, such as type 2 diabetes (T2D) has shown potential over the years although not yet set in clinical practice. Longitudinal ...
  • Mayerhofer, Eberhard (MDPI, 2019)
    First, we give a closed-form formula for first passage time of a reflected Brownian motion with drift. This corrects a formula by Perry et al. (2004). Second, we show that the maximum before a fixed drawdown is exponentially ...
  • Vynnycky, Michael; Lacaze, J. (Springer, 2019)
    In this paper, earlier dissolutive wetting models describing the dynamics of an axisymmetric alloy drop spreading on pure metal substrate are extended to describe reactive wetting and subsequent joint formation in brazing ...
  • O'Keeffe, Mary; O'Sullivan, Peter B.; Purtill, Helen; Bargary, Norma; O'Sullivan, Kieran (BMJ Publishing Group, 2019)
    Background: One-size-fits-all interventions reduce chronic low back pain (CLBP) a small amount. An individualised intervention called cognitive functional therapy (CFT) was superior for CLBP compared with manual therapy ...
  • 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 ...
