  • Sinnott, Margaret; Kinsley, Brendan T; Jackson, Abaigeal D; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; O'Grady, Tony; Nolan, John J; Gaffney, Peter; Boran, Gerard; Kelleher, Cecily C.; Carr, Bernadette (Public Library of Science, 2015)
    Type 2 diabetes has a long pre clinical asymptomatic phase. Early detection may delay or arrest disease progression. The Diabetes Mellitus and Vascular health initiative (DMVhi) was initiated as a prospective longitudinal ...
  • McCullagh, Gavin D; Cellai, Davide; Lawlor, Aonghus; Dawson, Kenneth A (2005)
    We extend a previously studied lattice model of particles with infinite repulsions to the case of finite-energy interactions. The phase diagram is studied using grand canonical Monte Carlo simulation. Simulations of dynamical ...
  • Warmenhoven, John; Harrison, Andrew J.; Robinson, Mark J.; Vanrenterghem, Jos; Bargary, Norma; Smith, Richard; Cobley, Stephen; Draper, Conny; Donnelly, Cryil; Pataky, Todd (Elsevier, 2018)
    Objectives: To examine whether the Functional Data Analysis (FDA), Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM) and Statistical non-Parametric Mapping (SnPM) hypothesis testing techniques differ in their ability to draw inferences ...
  • Fowler, Andrew C.; Kopteva, Natalia; Oakley, Charles (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2006)
    We consider a deterministic model of landscape evolution through the mechanism of overland flow over an erodible substrate, using the St. Venant equations of hydraulics together with the Exner equation for hillslope erosion. ...
  • Romero-Ortuno, Roman; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Lawlor, Brian A; Kenny, Rose Anne (BioMed Central, 2010)
    Background: A frailty paradigm would be useful in primary care to identify older people at risk, but appropriate metrics at that level are lacking. We created and validated a simple instrument for frailty screening in ...
  • Hurd, Thomas R; Gleeson, James P.; Melnik, Sergey (Public Library of Science, 2017)
    We introduce a probabilistic framework that represents stylized banking networks with the aim of predicting the size of contagion events. Most previous work on random financial networks assumes independent connections ...
  • Murphy, Ellen (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Applied mathematicians have long sourced problems from industrial processes. The relationship between mathematics and industry is mutually beneficial. Mathematical models provide industry with invaluable insights into ...
  • Bruni, Carmen; Koch, Christina; Konrad, Bernhard; Lindstrom, Michael; Moyles, Iain R.; Thompson, Will (Taylor and Francis, 2016)
    The Math Exam/Education Resources (MER) is an open online learning resource hosted at The University of British Columbia (UBC), aimed at providing mathematics education resources for students and instructors at UBC. In ...
  • O'Donoghue, Bernadette (University of Limerick, 2018)
    This study examines the readiness of pre-service teachers of mathematics to implement reforms in post-primary education and mathematics education, coined by the author as Literacy and Numeracy for Mathematics Teaching in ...
  • 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 ...
  • Carey, Michelle (University of Limericik, 2012)
    The incorporation of model-based penalties in a penalised regression frame- work (generalised smoothing) has been the subject of many publications, most notably: Cao and Ramsay (2007); Heckman and Ramsay (2000); Ramsay ...
  • Stembalska, Agnieszka; Leszczynski, Przemyslaw; Gil, Justyna; Ramsey, David; Pitala, Grzegorz; Maciejczyk, Adam; Frączek, Marcin (Wiley, 2014)
    Laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) belongs to the heterogeneous group of head and neck cancers. In the etiology of LSCC, beside important environmental factors, genetic and epigenetic factors play a role in defining ...
  • Franz, Sebastian; Kopteva, Natalia (Elsevier, 2012)
    We consider a singularly perturbed convection-diffusion problem posed in the unit square with a horizontal convective direction. Its solutions exhibit parabolic and exponential boundary layers. Sharp estimates of the Green's ...
  • Cooker, Mark; Cribbin, Laura B.; Dellar, Paul; Fitt, Alistair; Gaburro, Romina; Gibb, Tony; Kennedy, James; King, John; Kubat, Irnis; Lapin, Vladimir Nikolaevich; Lee, William T.; Murphy, Ellen; Nolan, Clifford J.; Parker, Joseph; Power, Oliver; Timoney, Catherine M. (2011)
    Background. The development of haptic touchscreens, that is touchscreens with the ability to mimic the feel of a real keyboard, would be a significant advance in the mobile phone and tablet market. This report investigates one ...
  • Moroney, Kevin M. (Univeristy of Limerick, 2016)
    Industrial and manufacturing processes are an abundant source of rich and complex problems amenable to investigation with mathematical logic and techniques. Once a problem is identi ed and the right questions are ...
  • Shiely, Frances; Hayes, Kevin; Perry, Ivan J; Kelleher, Cecily C. (Public Library of Science, 2012)
    Background: We have previously identified in a study of both self-reported body mass index (BMI) and clinically measured BMI that the sensitivity score in the obese category has declined over a 10-year period. It is known ...
  • Kieran, Jennifer Ann; Norris, Suzanne; O'Leary, Aisling; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Merriman, Raphael; Houlihan, D.; McCormick, Aiden; McKiernan, Susan; Bergin, Colm; Barry, Michael (BioMed Central, 2015)
    Background: Recent advances in Hepatitis C therapeutics offer the possibility of cure but will be expensive. The cost of treatment may be partially offset by the avoidance of advanced liver disease. We performed a micro-costing ...
  • Ryan, Niall C (University of Limerick, 2010)
    This thesis is concerned with the problem of high frequency elastic wave inversion. This is the problem of determining sharp, localised changes in the properties of materials beneath the surface of the earth using only ...
  • Nic Suibhne, Treasa; Raftery, Tara C; McMahon, Orla; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; O'Morain, Colm; O'Sullivan, Maria (Elsevier, 2013)
    Obesity and overweight are major public health issues. Although traditionally associated with weight loss, there is now evidence that increasing Body Mass Index (BMI) and overweight are emerging features of Crohn's disease ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2011)
    Binary-state dynamics (such as the susceptible-infected-susceptible (SIS) model of disease spread, or Glauber spin dynamics) on random networks are accurately approximated using master equations. Standard mean-field and ...
