  • Baber, Robert L.; Parnas, David Lorge; Vilkomir, Sergiy A.; Harrison, Paul; O'Connor, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    We describe our experience applying tabular mathematical approaches to software specifications. Our purpose is to show alternative approaches to writing tabular specifications and to help practitioners who want to apply ...
  • Carroll, Noel; Whelan, Eoin; Richardson, Ita (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    There is a need to address the significant gap in our ability to measure and monitor the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) across service networks. The unprecedented growth in service-based business processes over a short ...
  • Livingstone, Stephen J.; Utting, Daniel J.; Ruffell, Alastair; Clark, Chris D.; Pawley, Steven; Atkinson, Nigel; Fowler, Andrew C. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
    Recent proxy measurements reveal that subglacial lakes beneath modern ice sheets periodically store and release large volumes of water, providing an important but poorly understood influence on contemporary ice dynamics ...
  • Iordanov, Petar; Halton, Mark (Elsevier, 2012)
    A discrete-time state-space representation of a Buck converter is presented. This analytical state-space model provides explicit insight on how circuit parameters influence the stability and transient performance for ...
  • Cawley, Ciarán; Healy, Patrick; Botterweck, Goetz (2010)
    Variability management in software intensive systems can be a complex and cognitively challenging process. Configuring a Software Product Line with thousands of variation points in order to derive a specific product variant ...
  • Xu, Changqiao; Xia, Xiangzhou; Guan, Jianfeng; Zhang, Hongke; Muntean, Gabriel-Miro (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013)
    Recently, vehicular sensor networks (VSNs) have emerged as a new intelligent transport networking paradigm in the Internet of Things. By sensing, collecting, and delivering traffic-related information, VSNs can significantly ...
  • Thornton, Roibeard F.; Kagawa, Todd F.; O'Toole, Paul W.; Cooney, Jakki C. (BioMed Central, 2010)
    Background: The C10 family of cysteine proteases includes enzymes that contribute to the virulence of bacterial pathogens, such as SpeB in Streptococcus pyogenes. The presence of homologues of cysteine protease genes in ...
  • Li, Shi; Yin, Yu; Ouyang, Qiuyun; Chen, Yujin; Lewis, Elfed; Farrell, Gerald; Tokurakawa, Masaki; Wadi Harun, Sulaiman; Wang, Pengfei (IOP Publishing, 2019)
    Dissipative soliton generation is successfully demonstrated in an Erbium-doped mode-locked fibre laser using Tin Disulfide (SnS2) as a saturable absorber in the near-zero dispersion regime. A stable dissipative soliton ...
  • Moseson, Dana E.; Parker, Andrew S.; Gilpin, Christopher J.; Stewart, Andrew A.; Beaudoin, Stephen P.; Taylor, Lynne S. (American Chemical Society, 2019)
    The dissolution or melting of a crystalline drug into a molten polymeric matrix underpins the fabrication of a number of drug delivery systems. However, little is known about how crystals dissolve in such viscous matrices. ...
  • Hamilton, Geoff W.; Jones, Neil D. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    In this paper, we provide an improved basis for the “distillation” program transformation. It is known that superlinear speedups can be obtained using distillation, but cannot be obtained by other earlier automatic ...
  • Kannan, Venkatesh; Hamilton, Geoff W. (2016)
    Program transformation techniques are commonly used to improve the e ciency of programs. While many transformation techniques aim to remove ine ciencies in the algorithms used in a program, another source of ine ciency ...
  • Zhu, Liming; Ali Babar, Muhammad (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    Software architecture (SA) evaluation is a quality assurance technique that is increasingly attracting significant research and commercial interests. A number of SA evaluation methods have been developed. Most of these ...
  • Coleman, Joseph (University of Limerick, 2014)
    The robotic control of tethered parafoils enables a number of exciting applications, primarily a novel approach to wind energy generation. The airborne wind energy (AWE) paradigm aims to reduce greatly the mass and cost ...
  • Linnane, Séan; Richardson, Ita (2006)
    As more and more software organisations continue their integration into a burgeoning global business community, the effective management of relatively new types of working arrangements, such as those enabled by virtual ...
  • Lundell, Bjorn; Lings, Brian; Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian (2006)
    There are many reasons why an organisation should consider adopting distributed development of software systems and applications, including access to a larger labour pool and a broader skills base, cost advantages, and ...
  • Solis, Carlos; Ali, Nour (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    In Global Software Development (GSD), distributed stakeholders (e.g. team members, customers, etc) have to collaborate and communicate in an efficient and effective way to share, create and discuss knowledge. Nowadays, a ...
  • Dusparic, Ivana; Cahill, Vinny; SFI (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Large-scale agent-based systems are required to self-optimize towards multiple, potentially conflicting, policies of varying spatial and temporal scope. As a result, not all agents may be implementing all policies at all ...
  • Hagmeyer, Simone; Romão, Mariana A.; Cristóvão, Joana S.; Vilella, Antonietta; Zoli, Michele; Gomes, Cláudio M.; Grabrucker, Andreas M. (Frontiers Media, 2019)
    Increasing evidence links proteins of the S100 family to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). S100 proteins are EF-hand calcium-binding proteins with intra- and extracellular functions related to regulation of ...
  • Mooney, James; Halton, Mark; Iordanov, Petar; O'Brien, Vincent (IEEE Computer Society, 2015)
                               Multi-bit sigma-delta based digital pulse width modulators (DPWM) are used in the control of DC-DC converters in order to achieve high resolution and therefore high output voltage accuracy at ...
  • Rao Khandavilli, U.B.; Lusi, Matteo; Bhogala, Balakrishna R.; Maguire, Anita R.; Stein, Matthias; Lawrence, Simon E. (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016)
    The crystal structure containing (+/-)-3-methyl-2-phenylbutyramide with salicylic acid is the first example of a kryptoracemate co-crystal. It exhibits the first temperature mediated reversible single-crystal to single-crystal ...
