  • 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. ...
  • Kane, M; Korn, B; Saukkonen, J; McDonald, C.; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Waters, R; McLaughlin, A.M; Keane, J (Irish Medical Organisation, 2013)
    Treatment of Latent Tuberculosis Infection (LTBI) is an important component of any TB control strategy. Acceptance and completion of treatment is poor. We undertook this study to identify barriers to acceptance & completion ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Gleeson, James P.; Onaga, Tomokatsu; Fennell, Peter; Cotter, James; Burke, Raymond; O'Sullivan, David J.P. (Oxford University Press, 2021)
    A detailed analysis of Twitter-based information cascades is performed, and it is demonstrated that branching process hypotheses are approximately satisfied. Using a branching process framework, models of agent-to-agent ...
  • 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 ...
  • Goos, Merrilyn; Hannigan, Ailish; O'Donoghue, John; Ní Ríordáin, Máire (University of Limerick, 2019)
    Improving mathematics proficiency among Irish school children has long been a topic of national debate.123The research team at EPI*STEM, the national centre for STEM Education based at the University of Limerick (UL), ...
  • 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 ...
  • Sainani, Kristin L; Borg, David N; Caldwell, Aaron R.; Butson, Michael L; Tenan, Matthew S; Vickers, Andrew J; Vigotsky, Andrew D; Warmenhoven, John; Nguyen, Robert; Lohse, Keith R.; Knight, Emma J; Bargary, Norma (BMJ, 2020)
    Statistical errors are common in many biomedical fields.1–5 We believe the nature and impact of these errors to be great enough in sports science and medicine to warrant special attention.6–14 Poor methodological and ...
  • 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 ...
