  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Lane, Michael; Conboy, Kieran (Agile Alliance, 2011)
    In the last several years there has been a noticeable focus shift of agile methods from eXtreme Programming (XP) and Scrum to Lean approaches, which is indicated as “from agile to lean”. However our understanding of the ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Vidgen, Richard (Palgrave McMillan, 2006)
    New technologies, notably service oriented architectures and web services, are enabling a third wave of business process management (BPM). Supporters claim that BPM is informed by complexity theory and that business ...
  • Bresciani, Riccardo; Butterfield, Andrew (Springer, 2013)
    We have introduced probability in the UTP framework by using functions from the state space to real numbers, which we term distributions, that are embedded in the predicates describing the di er- ent program constructs. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Feller, Joseph; Finnegan, Patrick; Fitzgerald, Brian; Hayes, Jeremy (INFORMS, 2008)
    Peer production phenomena such as open source software (OSS) have been posited as a viable alternative to traditional production models. However, community-based development often falls short of creating software “products” ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Coyle, Lorcan; O'Hare, G.M.P.; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Mobile sensors are an attractive proposition for environmental sensing, but pose significant engineering problems. Not least amongst these is the need to match the behaviour of the sensor platform to the physical environment ...
  • Coleman, Honor (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2014)
    My thesis began with an interest in finding various differences and commonalities in the fields of science and architecture. I have always been interested by the seemingly fast paced progression of science and technology ...
  • Mancini, Clara; Thomas, Keerthi; Rogers, Yvonne; Price, Blaine A.; Jedrzejczyk, Lukasz; Bandara, Arosha K.; Joinson, Adam N.; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    Mobile privacy concerns are central to Ubicomp and yet remain poorly understood. We advocate a diversified approach, enabling the cross-interpretation of data from complementary methods. However, mobility imposes a number ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Sterritt, Roy; Nixon, Paddy; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Efforts since 2001 to design self-managing systems have yielded many impressive achievements, yet the original vision of autonomic computing remains unfulfilled. Researchers must develop a comprehensive systems engineering ...
  • Aguanno, Mauro V.; Lakestani, Fereydoun; Whelan, Maurice P.; Connelly, Michael J. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2007)
    We describe a heterodyne interferometry system based on a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor digital signal processor (CMOS-DSP) camera that is utilized for full-field optical phase measurement using a carrier-based ...
  • Egan, Patrick; Lakestani, Fereydoun; Whelan, Maurice P.; Connelly, Michael J. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2006)
    Full-field optical coherence tomography (OCT) using a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) camera with an integrated a digital signal processor (DSP) is demonstrated. The CMOSDSP camera employed is typically used ...
  • Egan, Patrick; Lakestani, Fereydoun; Whelan, Maurice P.; Connelly, Michael J. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2006)
    Fluctuations in the output intensity and wavelength of an external cavity diode laser can introduce significant error to wavelength-tuned interferometric measurement. However, a robust phase-retrieval algorithm can compensate ...
  • Sivčev, Satja; Rossi, Matija; Coleman, Joseph; Dooly, Gerard; Omerdic, Edin; Toal, Daniel (Elsevier, 2018)
    ROVs with hydraulic manipulators are extensively used for subsea intervention. With camera feedback from the scene, manipulators are teleoperated and slaved to pilot held master arms. While standard for offshore oil and ...
  • Quinn, Anthony; Kárný, MIroslav; Guy, Tatiana V (Elsevier, 2016)
    The minimum cross-entropy principle is an established technique for design of an unknown distribution, processing linear functional constraints on the distribution. More generally, fully probabilistic design (FPD) chooses ...
  • Murphy, Craig (University of Limerick, 2014)
    A functional sperm membrane is essential for many of the processes which lead to the fertilisation of an oocyte, but this membrane is susceptible to oxidative damage with increasing duration of storage in liquid semen ...
  • Robin, Sylvain; Arese, Marzia; Forte, Elena; Sarti, Paolo; Kolaj-Robin, Olga; Giuffrè, Alessandro; Soulimane, Tewfik (Public Library of Science, 2013)
    In bacteria, oxidation of sulfite to sulfate, the most common strategy for sulfite detoxification, is mainly accomplished by the molybdenum-containing sulfite:acceptor oxidoreductases (SORs). Bacterial SORs are very diverse ...
  • Armshaw, Patricia (University of Limerick, 2012)
    The enterobacterial mobile element, R391, is a prototype member of the SXT/R391 family of Integrative Conjugative Elements (ICEs). SXT/R391-like ICEs are sitespecific genome-integrating mobile elements, frequently isolated ...
  • Ryan, Ger; Nongonierma, Alice B.; O'Regan, Jonathan; Fitzgerald, Richard J. (Elsevier, 2018)
    The nitrogen solubility (pH 2.0–8.0), heat stability (pH 6.2–7.4) and viscosity (pH 6.2–7.4) properties of bovine milk protein isolate (MPI) and its Flavourzyme™, Neutrase™ and Protamex™ enzymatic hydrolysates were studied. ...
  • Armstrong, Gordon; Ruether, Manuel; Blighe, Fiona; Blau, Werner (Wiley and Sons Ltd for Society of Chemical Industry, 2009)
    BACKGROUND: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are fast becoming key components in the production of high-strength composite materials. Two methods to prepare nanocomposites by covalent bonding between an epoxy matrix and functionalised ...
  • Martinez, Josu; Dobson, Simon (2009)
    Autonomic computing aims to provide self-management and adaptation in the implementation of complex (large, heterogeneous, distributed) systems over time. Such adaptations must be stable, in the sense of maintaining the ...
