Models for overdispersed data in entomology
(Springer, Cham, 20140917)Entomological data are often overdispersed, characterised by a larger variance than assumed by simple standard models. It is important to model overdispersion properly in order to avoid incorrect and misleading inferences. ... 
Tension lines of the skin
(Springer, Cham, 20190529)Skin tension lines are natural lines of tension that occur within the skin as a result of growth and remodeling mechanisms. Researchers have been aware of their existence and their surgical implications for over 150 years. ... 
On exceptional vertex operator (Super) algebras
(Springer, 20141001)We consider exceptional vertex operator algebras and vertex operator superalgebras with the property that particular Casimir vectors constructed from the primary vectors of lowest conformal weight are Virasoro descendents ... 
Incremental equations for soft fibrous materials
(Springer, 2015)The general theory of nonlinear anisotropic elasticity is extended to describe smallamplitude motions and static deformations that can be superimposed on large prestrains of fibrereinforced solids. The linearised ... 
Interface waves in prestressed incompressible solids
(Springer, 2007)We study incremental wave propagation for what is seemingly the simplest boundary value problem, namely that constitued by the plane interface of a semiinfinite solid. With a view to model loaded elastomers and soft ...
