  • Davoren, Martin P.; Hayes, Kevin; Horgan, Mary; Shiely, Frances (BMJ Publishing Group, 2014)
    Objective The burden of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) rests with young people, yet in Ireland there has been very little research into this population. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence ...
  • 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 ...
  • Erkol, Şirag; Faqeeh, Ali; Radicchi, Filippo (IOP Publishing, 2018)
    We consider the problem of identifying the most influential nodes for a spreading process on a network when prior knowledge about structure and dynamics of the system is incomplete or erroneous. Specifically, we perform a ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...

M.; Howard, Robert; Pasquier, Florence; Borjesson-Hanson, Anne; Tsolaki, Magda; Lucca, Ugo; William Molloy, D; Coen, Robert; Riepe, Matthias W.; Kálmán, János; Kenny, Rose Anne; Cregg, Fiona; O'Dwyer, Sarah; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Adams, Jessica; Banzi, Rita; Breuilh, Laetitia; Daly, Leslie; Hendrix, Suzanne; Aisen, Paul; Gaynor, Siobhan; Sheikhi, Ali; Taekema, Diana G.; Verhey, Frans R.; Nemni, Raffaello; Nobili, Flavio; Franceschi, Massimo; Frisoni, Giovanni; Zanetti, Orazio; Konsta, Anastasia; Anastasios, Orologas; Nenopoulou, Styliani; Tsolaki-Tagaraki, Fani; Pakaski, Magdolna; Dereeper, Olivier; de la Sayette, Vincent; Sénéchal, Olivier; Lavenu, Isabelle; Devendeville, Agnés; Calais, Gauthier; Crawford, Fiona; Mullan, Michael (Public Library of Science, 2018)
    Background This study reports the findings of the first large-scale Phase III investigator-driven clinical trial to slow the rate of cognitive decline in Alzheimer disease with a dihydropyridine (DHP) calcium channel ...
  • 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 ...
  • Lee, William T.; Kaar, S.; O'Brien, Stephen B.G. (American Assocation of Physics Teachers, 2018)
    A surprising phenomenon witnessed by many is the sinking bubbles seen in a settling pint of stout beer. Bubbles are less dense than the surrounding fluid so how does this happen? Previous work has shown that the explanation ...
  • Faqeeh, Ali; Osat, Saeed; Radicchi, Filippo (American Physical Society, 2018)
    We show that the community structure of a network can be used as a coarse version of its embedding in a hidden space with hyperbolic geometry. The finding emerges from a systematic analysis of several real-world and ...
  • Zeglinski, Jacek; Kuhs, Manuel; Khamar, Dikshitkumar; Hegarty, Avril C.; Devi, Renuka K.; Rasmuson, Åke C. (Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2018)
    The influence of the solvent in nucleation of tolbutamide, a medium-sized, flexible and polymorphic organic molecule, has been explored by measuring nucleation induction times, estimating solvent-solute interaction ...
  • Dassios, Ioannis K. (Elsevier, 2018)
    In this article, we focus on a generalized problem of linear non-autonomous fractional nabla difference equations. Firstly, we define the equations and describe how this family of problems covers other linear fractional ...
  • Kartun-Giles, Alexander P.; Krioukov, Dmitri; Gleeson, James P.; Moreno, Yamir; Bianconi, Ginestra (MDPI, 2018)
    A projective network model is a model that enables predictions to be made based on a subsample of the network data, with the predictions remaining unchanged if a larger sample is taken into consideration. An exchangeable ...
  • Ward, Michael J.; Moyles, Iain R. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2017)
    We analyze a singularly perturbed reaction-diffusion system in the semi-strong diffusion regime in two spatial dimensions where an activator species is localized to a closed curve, while the inhibitor species exhibits long ...
  • Gleeson, James P.; Durrett, Rick (Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
    An avalanche or cascade occurs when one event causes one or more subsequent events, which in turn may cause further events in a chain reaction. Avalanching dynamics are studied in many disciplines, with a recent focus on ...
  • Timoney, Catherine M. (University of Limerick, 2017)
    This work is concerned with finding accurate numerical approximations to nonlinear reaction-diffusion problems that exhibit layer phenomena. It considers three variations of problems of this type. These are; a ...
  • Castro-Dominguez, B.; Moroney, Kevin M.; Schaller, B.; O'Connor, S.; Cloonan, A.; Vo, Tuoi T.N.; Walker, Gavin M.; O'Reilly, E. J. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
    The development of biocompatible membrane materials capable of delivering active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) over a fixed time period offers significant advantages to the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries ...

    Asymptotic methods are employed to revisit an earlier model for oscillation-mark formation in the continuous casting of steel. A systematic non-dimensionalization of the governing equations, which was not carried out ...
  • O'Sullivan, David J.P.; Garduño-Hernández, Guillermo; Gleeson, James P.; Beguerisse-Díaz, Mariano (The Royal Society, 2017)
    We examine the relationship between social structure and sentiment through the analysis of a large collection of tweets about the Irish Marriage Referendum of 2015. We obtain the sentiment of every tweet with the hashtags ...
  • Starnini, Michele; Gleeson, James P.; Boguna, Marián (American Physical Society, 2017)
    A general formalism is introduced to allow the steady state of non-Markovian processes on networks to be reduced to equivalent Markovian processes on the same substrates. The example of an epidemic spreading process is ...
  • Cregan, Vincent; Lee, William T.; Clune, Louise (SpringerOpen, 2017)
    A soft sensor for measuring product quality in the Bayer process has been developed. The soft sensor uses a combination of historical process data recorded from online sensors and laboratory measurements to predict a key ...
