  • Ghassemi Toosi, Farshad; 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 ...
  • Buckley, Jim; De Wille, Tabea Margaret; Exton, Chris; Exton, Geraldine; Murray, Liam (SAGE Publications, 2018)
    Gamification is the use of game design elements in nongame contexts and has been shown to be effective in motivating behavior change. By seeing game elements as “motivational affordances,” and formalizing the relationship ...
  • 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 ...
  • Exton, Geraldine (University of Limerick, 2017)
    This thesis aims to formalise the relationship between game elements and motivation, towards making gamification use more systematic. Gamification is “the use of game design elements in non-game contexts” (Deterding et ...
  • 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 ...
  • Grabrucker, Stefanie; Boeckers, Tobias M.; Grabrucker, Andreas M. (Frontiers Media, 2016)
    Zinc deficiency has recently been linked to the etiology of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) as environmental risk factor. With an estimated 17% of the world population being at risk of zinc deficiency, especially zinc ...
  • O'Connor, Eibhlís M.; Fitzgerald, G.F.; O'Toole, Paul W. (Cambridge University Press, 2011)
    In elderly populations, cognitive impairment and incident dementia may be related to inadequate vitamin B status, predominantly folate and vitamin B12. Folate deficiency has been associated with Alzheimer’s disease as ...
  • Power, S.E.; O'Connor, Eibhlís M.; Jeffery, Ian B.; O'Toole, Paul W.; Fitzgerald, G.F. (Cambridge University Press, 2012)
    The proportion of citizens older than 65 years of age in Western populations is increasing. It is therefore important to investigate the fundamental role of diet in the prevention of age-associated chronic disease(1). In ...
  • 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 ...
  • Benn, D. I.; Fowler, Andrew C.; Hewitt, I.; Sevestre, H. (Cambridge University Press, 2019)
    We present the first general theory of glacier surging that includes both temperate and polythermal glacier surges, based on coupled mass and enthalpy budgets. Enthalpy (in the form of thermal energy and water) is gained ...
  • 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 ...
  • Effler, Simon; Halton, Mark; Kelly, Anthony; Rinne, Karl (PCIM Europe, 2008)
    This paper focuses on the application of a generalized predictive control (GPC) law design technique for digitally controlled DC-DC converters. The unconstrained GPC control law presented is based on a minimization of ...
  • 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, ...
  • O'Regan, Leo; Cosgrove, Tom; Higgins, Ross (Irish Transport Research Network, 2015)
    Limerick was designated as Ireland’s National Smarter Travel demonstration area in 2012. Limerick Smarter Travel, which aims to promote sustainable travel in the City and suburbs, is a partnership between the Limerick ...
  • Connolly, Alan (University of Limerick, 2013)
    The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the potential of pale and black brewers’ spent grain (BSG), brewery barley by-products, as starting materials for the generation of protein-enriched isolates (BSG-PI). ...
