  • Gleeson, James P.; Melnik, Sergey; Ward, Jonathan A; Porter, Mason A; Murcha, Peter J (American Physical Society, 2012)
    Mean-field analysis is an important tool for understanding dynamics on complex networks. However, surprisingly little attention has been paid to the question of whether mean-field predictions are accurate, and this is ...
  • Ward, Jonathan A; Fowler, Andrew C. (SpringerOpen, 2016)
    Purpose: The polishing of cut lead glass crystal is effected through the dowsing of the glass in a mixture of two separate acids, which between them etch the surface and as a result cause it to be become smooth. In order ...
  • MacKenzie, Gilbert (IWSM, 2004)
    Conventionally, in longitudinal studies, the mean structure has been thought to be more important than the covariance structure between the repeated measures on the same individual. Often, it has been argued that, with ...
  • Butler, John S.; Beiser, Ines M.; Williams, Laura; McGovern, Eavan; Molloy, Fiona; Lynch, Tim; Healy, Daniel G.; Moore, Helena; Walsh, Richard; Reilly, Richard B.; O'Riordan, Seán; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Hutchinson, Michael (Frontiers Media, 2015)
    Background: Adult-onset isolated focal dystonia (AOIFD) presenting in early adult life is more frequent in men, whereas in middle age it is female predominant. Temporal discrimination, an endophenotype of adult-onset ...
  • Moroney, Kevin M.; O’Connell, Ken; Meikle-Janney, Paul; O’Brien, Stephen B.G.; Walker, Gavin M.; Lee, William T. (Public Library of Science, 2019)
    Achieving a uniform extraction of soluble material from a porous matrix is a generic problem in various separation and filtration operations, with applications in the food processing, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. ...
  • Lynch, Joseph; MacKenzie, Gilbert (IWSM, 2007)
    Kaplan-Meier analysis of a large breast cancer dataset is carried out under all-cause and cause-specific survival. The results are compared with a variety of model-based analyses, including Cox's Proportional Hazard ...
  • Faulkner, Fiona (University of Limerick, 2012)
    Declining standards in students’ mathematical competency levels has become a major issue in mathematics education both nationally and internationally (Smith 2004; Kajander and Lovric 2005; Gill et al 2010). This decline ...
  • Cuffe, Paul; Dassios, Ioannis K.; Keane, Andrew (IEEE Computer Society, 2016)
    Abstract—Loss minimizing generator dispatch profiles for power systems are usually derived using optimization techniques. However, some authors have noted that a system’s KGL matrix can be used to analytically determine ...
  • Fennell, Peter G.; Gleeson, James P.; Cellai, Davide (American Physical Society, 2014)
    Facilitated spin models were introduced some decades ago to mimic systems characterized by a glass transition. Recent developments have shown that a class of facilitated spin models is also able to reproduce characteristic ...
  • Gleeson, James P.; Melnik, Sergey (American Physical Society, 2009)
    An analytical approach to calculating bond percolation thresholds, sizes of k-cores, and sizes of giant connected components on structured random networks with nonzero clustering is presented. The networks are generated ...
  • Mitchell, Sarah L.; Myers, Tim G. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2012)
    We employ the Heat Balance Integral Method HBIM to solve a number of thermal and phase change problems which occur in a multitude of industrial contexts. As part of our analysis, we propose a new error measure for the ...
  • Fannon, James S.; Moyles, Iain R.; Fowler, Andrew C. (Cambridge University Press, 2019)
    We consider the instability properties of dense granular flow in inclined plane and plane shear geometries as tests for the compressible inertial-dependent rheology. The model, which is a recent generalisation of the ...
  • Myers, Tim G.; Mitchell, Sarah L. (Vinča Institute of Nuclear Sciences, Belgrade, 2009)
    In this paper we consider approximate travelling wave solutions to the Korteweg-de Vries equation. The heat-balance integral method is first applied to the problem, using two different quartic approximating functions, ...
  • McGrory, Ellen; Holian, Emma; Alvarez-Iglesias, Alberto; Bargary, Norma; McGillicuddy, Eoin J.; Henry, Tiernan; Daly, Eve; Morrison, Liam (Frontiers Media, 2018)
    Globally numerous regions have been identified with elevated arsenic within groundwater which can result in potential adverse health risks. In Ireland, a previous national-scale research assessment of groundwater identified ...

    Background: Recent investigations have demonstrated the clear heterogeneity of sporadic colorectal cancer (CRC) with regard to CpG island methylation. Two unsupervised cluster analyses revealed that CRCs form three distinct ...
  • Dowd, Kieran P.; Kirwan, Robert P; Hannigan, Ailish; Purtill, Helen; O'Gorman, Clodagh S. (BMJ Publishing Group, 2015)
    Objectives: To examine the relationship between maternal self-reported and measured height and weight, maternal perceived weight status and measured body mass index (BMI), and maternal perceived child weight status and ...
  • Moroney, Kevin M.; Lee, William T.; O'Brien, Stephen B.G.; Suijver, F.; Marra, Johan (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2016)
    Extraction of coffee solubles from roast and ground coffee is a highly complex process, depending on a large number of brewing parameters. We consider a recent, experimentally validated, model of coffee extraction, describing ...
  • Myers, Tim G.; Mitchell, Sarah L.; Slatter, Paul (IOP Publishing, 2017)
    The work in this paper concerns the axisymmetric pipe ow of a Herschel-Bulkley uid, with the aim of determining a relation between the critical velocity (de ning the transition between laminar and turbulent ow) and ...
  • Haynes, Matthew; O'Brien, Stephen B.G.; Benilov, Eugene (AIP Publishing, 2016)
    This paper uses asymptotic techniques to find the shape of a two dimensional liquid bridge suspended between two vertical walls. We model the equilibrium bridge shape using the Laplace-Young equation. We use the Bond number ...

    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 ...
