  • 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 ...
  • Kopteva, Natalia (Elsevier, 2004)
    Two model two-dimensional singularly perturbed convection-diffusion problems are considered whose solutions may have characteristic boundary and interior layers. They are solved numerically by the streamline-diffusion ...
  • Gleeson, James P.; Melnik, Sergey; Hackett, Adam W. (American Physical Society, 2010)
    The question of how clustering (nonzero density of triangles) in networks affects their bond percolation threshold has important applications in a variety of disciplines. Recent advances in modeling highly clustered networks ...
  • Kiri, Victor A; MacKenzie, Gilbert (Bentham Science Publishers, 2009)
    Although cohort studies which are based on intention-to-treat (ITT) approach offer a simple design with data which are simpler to analyse and results easier to interpret, such studies also intrinsically assume that any ...
  • Gordon, Andrew (University of Limerick, 2013)
    Polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs) are versatile electrochemical devices that convert the chemical energy of a fuel, such as hydrogen, and an oxidant, such as air-derived oxygen, directly into electricity, both cleanly ...
  • Gaburro, Romina; Nolan, Clifford J.; Dowling, Thomas; Cheney, Margaret (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2007)
    We consider the problem of imaging in a region where ultrasonic waves are multiply scattered. A transducer emits ultrasonic pulses in tissue where they scatter from a heterogeneity (e.g. a tumor) in the region of ...
  • Donnelly, David W.; Hegarty, Avril C.; Sharp, Linda; Carsin, Anne-Elie; Deady, Sandra; McCluskey, Neil; Comber, Harry; Gavin, Anna (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013)
    Background. Cancer incidence rates vary considerably between countries and by socioeconomic status (SES). We investigate the impact of SES upon the relative cancer risk in two neighbouring countries. Methods. Data on ...
  • Leahy, Joe; O'Leary, Aisling; Afdhal, Nezam; Gray, Emma; Milligan, Scott; Wehmeyer, Malte H.; Walsh, Cathal Dominic (Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2018)
    The use of individual patient data (IPD) in network meta-analysis (NMA) is becoming increasingly popular. However, as most studies do not report IPD, most NMAs are performed using aggregate data for at least some, if not ...
  • O'Meara, Niamh (University of Limerick, 2011)
    The importance of mathematics is recognised and acknowledged worldwide and its importance as a school subject has been confirmed universally. A primary concern in Ireland among educators, policy makers and the Department ...
  • Yeomans, Caithriona; Kenny, Ian C.; Cahalan, Róisin Máire; Warrington, Giles D.; Harrison, Andrew J.; Hayes, Kevin; Lyons, Mark; Campbell, Mark J.; Comyns, Thomas M. (Springer, 2018)
    Background Rugby union is a physically demanding, fullcontact team sport that has gained worldwide popularity. The incidence of injury in rugby union has been widely reported in the literature. While comprehensive injury ...
