  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (Springer-Verlag, 2011)
    Contemporary aerospace systems are complex conglomerates of components where control software drives rigid hardware to aid such systems meet their standards and safety requirements. The design and development of such systems ...
  • Sharif, Khaironi Yatim; Buckley, Jim (2009)
    Several authors have proposed information seeking as an appropriate perspective for studying software maintenance and evolution, and have characterized information seeking empirically in commercial software evolution ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Adam, Frédéric (1996)
    What the future holds for the IS field is not all that clear. On the one hand, it could be argued that IS could become the primary organisational and management discipline, given the primacy of IS for such critical ...
  • Conboy, Kieran; Morgan, Lorraine (Springer Verlag, 2010)
    A particular strength of agile approaches is that they move away from ‘introverted’ development and intimately involve the customer in all areas of development, supposedly leading to the development of a more innovative ...
  • Toosi, Farshad Ghassemi; Nikolov, Nikola S.; Eaton, Malachy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2016)
    We report on our findings using a genetic algorithm (GA) as a preprocessing step for force-directed graph drawings to find a smart initial vertex layout (instead of a random initial layout) to decrease the number of edge ...
  • Yilmez, Mert; Yilmaz, Murat; O'Connor, Rory V.; Clarke, Paul (Springer, 2016)
    Although there are various kinds of processes designed to manage the complexities of software development, it is still a challenging endeavor. Recently, a significant number of researchers have started to investigate ...
  • Dorling, Alec; Mc Caffery, Fergal (Springer, 2012)
    Abstract. Process Improvement has been used for decades as a means to become better and more efficient. Whilst many organizations have used considerable resources for process improvement, investments in process improvement ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Korostynska, Olga (IEEE Computer Society, 2002)
    Thin films of Tellurium dioxide (TeO2) were investigated for γ-radiation dosimetry purposes. Samples were fabricated using thin film vapour deposition technique. Thin films of Te02 were exposed to a 60Co γ-radiation source ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Korostynska, Olga; Szumilas, L.; Harris, John A.; Clifford, S.A. (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    In2O3 and SiO mixtures into thick film pn-junctions form were investigated for γ-radiation dosimetry purposes. Results show that the current is increased with the increase in radiation dose to a certain level, exceeding ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Korostynska, Olga; Jafer, Essa; Arshak, Arousian; Morris, Deirdre; Gill, Edric I. (IEEE Computer Society, 2006)
    A novel cost-effective real-time gamma radiation monitoring system based on metal oxide thick films was designed and tested. The changes in capacitances of ZnO and SnO2 thick film capacitors with interdigitated ...
  • Ngoc-Nha, Vi Tran; McDonagh, Patrick; Murphy, John (2013)
    Acoustic data is a potential source for traffic monitoring due to its low-cost and the ease of deployment. In this paper, a case study of using acoustic monitoring as a source for transportation management purposes is ...
  • Saber, Takfarinas; Ventresque, Anthony; Gandibleux, Xavier; Murphy, Liam (Springer, 2014)
    Data centres are facilities with large amount of machines (i.e., servers) and hosted processes (e.g., virtual machines). Managers of data centres (e.g., operators, capital allocators, CRM) constantly try to optimise ...
  • 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 ...
  • Mirtchev, Seferin T; Goleva, Rossitza I; Atamian, Dimitar K; Mirtchev, Mirtcho J; Ganchev, Ivan; Stainov, Rumen (De Gruyter OPEN, 2016)
    In this article, a full-access waiting multi-server queue with a statedependent arrival and departure processes is investigated and suggested for use as a generic traffic model of the novel concept of the Enhanced Living ...
  • Hamilton, Geoff W. (EPTCS, 2016)
    Counterexamples explain why a desired temporal logic property fails to hold. The generation of counterexamples is considered to be one of the primary advantages of model checking as a verification technique. Furthermore, ...
