  • Kyrke-Smith, T.M.; Katz, R.F; Fowler, Andrew C. (International 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 ...
  • O'Connor, Ray; Mannix, M; Mullen, J; Powys, L.; Mannion, M; Nolan, H.A; Kearney, E; Cullen, Walter; Griffin, M.; Saunders, Jean (Irish Medical Organization, 2013)
    This qualitative study explored general practitionerâ s and practice nurseâ s perceptions of barriers and facilitators to the proposed transfer of diabetes care to general practice. Qualitative data were collected ...
  • Lane, Ciara (European Society for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017)
    A questionnaire survey was conducted as part of a study investigating post-primary students’ images of mathematics in Ireland. A definition of ‘image of mathematics’ was adopted from Lim (1999) and Wilson (2011). Students’ ...
  • Ryan, Veronica; Fitzmaurice, Olivia; O'Donoghue, John (Springernature, 2021)
    A successful transition from primary to secondary school is central to student confidence and the sustainment of student interest and passion for learning. The literature indicates that difficult transitions can result in ...
  • Bridgman, Stephen A.; Walley, Gayle; MacKenzie, Gilbert; Clement, Darren; Griffiths, David; Maffulli, Nicola (Elsevier, 2009)
    In a prospective single-centre longitudinal randomized controlled trial 116 patients were allocated to the sub-vastus approach, and 115 to the medial parapatellar approach. At one week follow-up, compared to baseline, range ...
  • Bridgman, Stephen A.; Walley, Gayle; MacKenzie, Gilbert; Clement, Darren; Griffiths, David; Maffulli, Nicola (BioMed Central Ltd.,, 2006)
    Background: Thirty thousand knee replacements are performed annually in the UK. There is uncertainty as to the best surgical approach to the knee joint for knee arthroplasty. We planned a randomised controlled trial to ...
  • Kyrke-Smith, T.M.; Katz, R.F; Fowler, Andrew C. (American Geophysical Union, 2015)
    Observations have long associated ice streams with the presence of meltwater at the bed. More recently, theoretical models have been able to reproduce ice stream behavior as a consequence of the coupled dynamics of ice and ...
  • Kyrke-Smith, T.M.; Fowler, Andrew C. (2014)
    The existence of both water and sediment at the bed of ice streams is well documented, but there is a lack of fundamental understanding about the mechanisms of ice, water and sediment interaction. We pose a model to describe ...
  • Ikoyi, Israel; Fowler, Andrew C.; Storey, Sean; Schmalenberger, Achim (Elsevier, 2020)
    The increased use of sulfate fertilizers to compensate for soil sulphur (S) limitation in agricultural soils may affect soil microbes and micro-fauna involved in S mobilization. Here, columns with podzolic soil material ...
  • MacKenzie, Gilbert (IWSM, 1999)
    In longitudinal studies with a set of continuous or ordinal repeated response variables it may be convenient to summarise the outcome as a threshold event. Then, the time to this event becomes of interest. This is ...
  • Burke, Kevin; MacKenzie, Gilbert (IWSM, 2011)
    We aim to explore the survival distributions based on the extreme dispersion, XD, models proposed by Jørgensen (2010). It is suggested that survival times can be modelled within the XD framework by taking log T = Y ~ ...
  • Lynch, Joseph (University of Limerick, 2011)
    In the survival analysis literature, the standard model for data analysis is the semi-parametric Proportional Hazard (PH) model of Cox (1972). MacKenzie (1996) introduced the Generalised Time Dependent Logistic (GTDL) ...
  • Cunningham, C.J.; Walsh, J.B.; Coakley, D.; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Connolly, C.; Murphy, M.; Murphy, C. (Irish Medical Organisation, 2008)
    Data on the life expectancy of elderly people in long term care facilities will be important for effective service planning and monitoring quality of care. To date there are no such data from an Irish perspective. A random ...
  • Muolo, Riccardo; Carletti, Timoteo; Gleeson, James P.; Asllani, Malbor (MDPI, 2021)
    Synchronization is an important behavior that characterizes many natural and human made systems that are composed by several interacting units. It can be found in a broad spectrum of applications, ranging from neuroscience ...
  • Walsh, Mary E.; Horgan, Frances N.; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Galvin, Rose (BMJ Publishing Group, 2016)
    BACKGROUND: Falls are a significant cause of morbidity after stroke. The aim of this review was to identify, critically appraise and summarise risk prediction models for the occurrence of falling after stroke. METHODS: A ...
  • Shiely, Frances; Perry, Ivan J.; Lutomski, Jennifer E.; Harrington, Janas M.; Kelleher, Cecily C.; McGee, Hannah; Hayes, Kevin (BioMed Central, 2010)
    Background: As the use of self-reported data to classify obesity continues, the temporal change in the accuracy of self-report measurement when compared to clinical measurement remains unclear. The objective of this study ...
  • 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 ...
  • Ceveron, Gonzalez Maria T. (University of Limerick, 2011)
    The kidney is one of the most important organs in the body, responsible for regulating the volume and composition of the extracellular fluid; excreting metabolic waste (as urine) and foreign substances; and also producing ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (2009)
    The motion of overdamped particles in a one-dimensional spatially-periodic potential is considered. The potential is also randomly-fluctuating in time, due to multiplicative colored noise terms, and has a deterministic ...
  • Ndukwe, Ihedinachi; O'Riordan, Seán; Walsh, Cathal Dominic (Frontiers Media, 2020)
    Background: Mood disorder is common in cervical dystonia and can impact on quality of life. It often precedes the onset of cervical dystonia and does not improve with botulinum toxin therapy. Objective: To assess health-related ...
