Introduction to the special issue on stability under finite deformation
(Oxford University Press, 2010)
In the botanical gardens of Grenoble, France, there is small bridge, just a few metres long, made of pre-stressed concrete. The bridge dates back to 1855 and is thought to be the oldest manufactured pre-stressed structure ...
Cell complexes database for the Bianchi groups
(NUI Galway, 2016-05-18)
This is a database of quotients by Bianchi groups of two-dimensional cellular equivariant retracts of Hyperbolic three-space. The Bianchi groups SL(2, A), with A the ring of integers in the imaginary quadratic number field ...
On residual stresses and homeostasis: an elastic theory of functional adaptation in living matter
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-04-26)
Living matter can functionally adapt to external physical factors by developing internal tensions, easily revealed by cutting experiments. Nonetheless, residual stresses intrinsically have a complex spatial distribution, ...
Ray W Ogden: An Appreciation
(SAGE Publications, 2015-07)
This special issue of Mathematics and Mechanics of Solids is dedicated to Professor Ray Ogden FRS on the occasion of his 70th birthday. It is a companion volume to another special issue edited by our colleagues ...
Multiples of Pfister forms
The isotropy of multiples of Pfister forms is studied. Some classical results are recalled and their consequences presented, with certain of these statements being previously known but hitherto unpublished. In particular, ...
On the Torus degeneration of the genus two partition function
(World Scientific Publishing, 2013-07-16)
We consider the partition function of a general vertex operator algebra V on a genus two Riemann surface formed by sewing together two tori. We consider the non-trivial degeneration limit where one torus is pinched down ...
Strain energy function for isotropic non-linear elastic incompressible solids with linear finite strain response in shear and torsion
We find the strain energy function for isotropic incompressible solids exhibiting a linear relationship between shear stress and amount of shear, and between torque and amount of twist, when subject to large simple shear ...
Computing the table of marks of a cyclic extension
(American Mathematical Society, 2012-02-24)
The subgroup pattern of a finite group C is the table of marks of G together with a list of representatives of the conjugacy classes of subgroups of G. In this article we present an algorithm for the computation of the ...
A note on element centralizers in finite Coxeter groups
(De Gruyter, 2011-08-29)
The normalizer N-W(W-J) of a standard parabolic subgroup W-J of a finite Coxeter group W splits over the parabolic subgroup with complement N-J consisting of certain minimal length coset representatives of W-J in W. In ...
The BMR freeness conjecture for the 2-reflection groups
(American Mathematical Society, 2016-10-12)
We prove the freeness conjecture of Broue, Malle and Rouquier for the Hecke algebras associated to the primitive complex 2-reflection groups with a single conjugacy class of reflections.
