  • Semochkina, Daria A. (University of Limerick, 2018)
    This thesis is concerned with the calibration of disease models in order to inform decisions about public health problems. These models are used to make predictions about the likely outcomes of disease spread (e.g. ...
  • ÓhAiseadha, Coilín; Mannix, Mai; Saunders, Jean; Philip, Roy K (Kerman University of Medical Sciences, 2016)
    Background: Increasing demand for limited healthcare resources raises questions about appropriate use of inpatient beds. In the first paediatric bed utilisation study at a regional university centre in Ireland, we conducted ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2013)
    A wide class of binary-state dynamics on networks-including, for example, the voter model, the Bass diffusion model, and threshold models-can be described in terms of transition rates (spin-flip probabilities) that depend ...
  • Gallagher, Jason (University of Limerick, 2016)
    This research project investigated whether students’ conceptual understanding of algebra was improved with a taught intervention supported by digital pencasts. The motivation for this project was inspired by observing ...
  • Lee, William T.; Fowler, Andrew C.; Power, O.; Healy, S.; Browne, J. (American Institute of Physics, 2010)
    Polycrystalline silicon fuses are one time programmable memory elements which allow the calibration of integrated circuits at wafer and package level. We present a zero-dimensional lumped parameter model of the programming ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2009)
    Analytical results are derived for the bond percolation threshold and the size of the giant connected component in a class of random networks with nonzero clustering. The network's degree distribution and clustering spectrum ...
  • Hackett, Adam W.; Cellai, Davide; Gomez, S.; Arenas, A.; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2016)
    We present an analytical approach for bond percolation on multiplex networks and use it to determine the expected size of the giant connected component and the value of the critical bond occupation probability in these ...
  • Prendergast, Mark; O’Meara, Niamh; O’Hara, Clare; Harbison, Lorraine; Cantley, Ian (Western Australian Institutes for Educational Research, 2019)
    The transition from primary to secondary school is regarded as one of the most difficult crossings in students’ educational careers. The move, which typically occurs between the ages of twelve and fourteen, can be particularly ...
  • Devereux, Michael (University of Limerick, 2011)
    Foam and bubbles are ubiquitous in industry and nature. They have a wide range of applications but are also an undesirable product of certain processes. This thesis considers two individual industrial problems with the ...
  • Gil, Justyna; Ramsey, David; Stembalska, Agnieszka; Karpinski, Pawel; Pesz, Karolina A; Laczmanska, Izabela; Leszczynski, Przemyslaw; Grzebieniak, Zygmunt; Sasiadek, Maria Malgorzata (Springer-Verlag, 2012)
    Background: Epidemiological data show that colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most frequent malignancy worldwide. The involvement of “minor impact genes” such as XME and DNA-repair genes in the etiology of sporadic ...
  • Benilov, Eugene (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2018)
    Observations show that radii of oceanic eddies often exceed the Rossby radius of deformation, whereas theoretical studies suggest that such vortices should be unstable. The present paper resolves this paradox by presenting ...
  • Hackett, Adam W. (University of Limerick, 2011)
    The network topologies on which many natural and synthetic systems are built provide ideal settings for the emergence of complex phenomena. One well-studied manifestation of this, called a cascade or avalanche, is observed ...
  • 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 ...
  • Hutchinson, Michael; Isa, Tadashi; Molloy, Anna; Kimmich, Okka; Williams, Laura; Molloy, Fiona; Moore, Helena; Healy, Daniel G.; Lynch, Tim; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Butler, John; Reilly, Richard B.; Walsh, Richard; O'Riordan, Sean (Frontiers Media, 2014)
    While the pathogenesis of cervical dystonia remains unknown, recent animal and clinical experimental studies have indicated its probable mechanisms. Abnormal temporal discrimination is a mediational endophenotype of cervical ...
  • Faqeeh, Ali; Osat, Saeed; Radicchi, Filippo (American Physical Society, 2018)
    We show that the community structure of a network can be used as a coarse version of its embedding in a hidden space with hyperbolic geometry. The finding emerges from a systematic analysis of several real-world and ...
  • MacKenzie, Gilbert; Peng, Defen (2014)
    In the parametric regression models with categorical covariates, it is well known that many key quantities of interest are invariant to the choice of reference subclass. However, surprisingly, not all quantities are ...
  • Moroney, Kevin M.; Lee, William T.; O'Brien, Stephen B.G.; Suijver, Freek; Marra, Johan (SpringerOpen, 2016)
    The extraction of coffee solubles from roasted and ground coffee is a complex operation, the understanding of which is key to the brewing of high quality coffee. This complexity stems from the fact that brewing of coffee ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2002)
    Recently Vlad et al. [Phys. Rev. E. 63, 066304 (2001)] applied the method of decorrelation trajectories to the transport of tracers in stochastic velocity fields with constant drift, and found that the average ...
  • O'Keeffe, Mary; Purtill, Helen; Kennedy, Norelee; Conneely, Mairead; Hurley, John; O'Sullivan, Peter B.; Dankaerts, Wim; O'Sullivan, Kieran (Elsevier, 2016)
    Nonspecific chronic spinal pain (NSCSP) is highly disabling. Current conservative rehabilitation commonly includes physical and behavioral interventions, or a combination of these approaches. Physical interventions aim to ...
