Free Bosonic Vertex Operator Algebras on Genus Two Riemann Surfaces II
(2011)We continue our program to define and study $n$point correlation functions for a vertex operator algebra $V$ on a higher genus compact Riemann surface obtained by sewing surfaces of lower genus. Here we consider Riemann ... 
Frequency domain fluorescence lifetime study of crude petroleum oils
(Springer Verlag, 20080201)Frequency domain (FD) fluorescence lifetime data was collected for a series of 20 crude petroleum oils using a 405 nm excitation source and over a spectral range of similar to 426 to similar to 650 nm. Average fluorescence ... 
From icosahedron to a plane flattening dodecaiodododecaborate by successive stripping of iodine
(Wiley, 20120907)It has been shown by electrospray ionization–iontrap mass spectrometry that B12I122− converts to an intact B12 cluster as a result of successive stripping of single iodine radicals or ions. Herein, the structure and ... 
Functional responses and adaptation of mesophilic microbial communities to psychrophilic anaerobic digestion
(Oxford University Press, 20151027)Psychrophilic (<20°C) anaerobic digestion (AD) represents an attractive alternative to mesophilic wastewater treatment. In order to investigate the AD microbiome response to temperature change, with particular emphasis on ... 
GaIII Complexes as Models for the MIII Site of Purple Acid Phosphatase: Ligand Effects on the Hydrolytic Reactivity Toward Bis(2,4dinitrophenyl) phosphate
(2010)The effects of a series of Galli complexes with tripodal ligands on the hydrolysis rate of the activated phosphate diester bis(2,4dinitrophenyl)phosphate (BDNPP) have been investigated. In particular, the influence of the ... 
The Galway astronomical Stokes polarimeter: an allStokes optical polarimeter with ultrahigh time resolution
(Springer Verlag, 20130628)Many astronomical objects emit polarised light, which can give information both about their source mechanisms, and about (scattering) geometry in their source regions. To date (mostly) only the linearly polarised components ... 
Gamebased learning to engage students with physics and astronomy using a board game
(IGI Global, 2019)In this research article, the authors developed a novel astronomy board game and examined how this approach could facilitate the learning and teaching of astronomy topics covered in the new Irish Science Syllabus. A total ... 
Gammarays from the quasar PKS 1441+25: story of an escape
(20151220)Outbursts from gammaray quasars provide insights on the relativistic jets of active galactic nuclei and constraints on the diffuse radiation fields that fill the universe. The detection of significant emission above 100 ... 
GASP  Galway Astronomical Stokes Polarimeter
(2009)The Galway Astronomical Stokes Polarimeter (GASP) is an ultrahighspeed, full Stokes, astronomical imaging polarimeter based upon a Division of Amplitude Polarimeter. It has been developed to resolve extremely rapid ... 
A gene regulatory network underlying the formation of preplacodal ectoderm in Xenopus laevis
(BioMed Central, 20180616)Background: The neural plate border ectoderm gives rise to key developmental structures during embryogenesis, including the neural crest and the preplacodal ectoderm. Many sensory organs and ganglia of vertebrates develop ... 
Generalised Moonshine and Abelian Orbifold Constructions
(1994)We consider the application of Abelian orbifold constructions in Meromorphic Conformal Field Theory (MCFT) towards an understanding of various aspects of Monstrous Moonshine and Generalised Moonshine. We review some of the ... 
Generalization of the Zabolotskaya equation to all incompressible isotropic elastic solids
(The Royal Society, 20190703)We study elastic shear waves of small but finite amplitude, composed of an antiplane shear motion and a general inplane motion. We use a multiple scales expansion to derive an asymptotic system of coupled nonlinear ... 
Generalized Moonshine and orbifold constructions.
(Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences (Kokyuroku), 2002)A brief review is given of some of our recent work on Generalised Monstrous Moonshine using abelian orbifoldings of the Moonshine Module. 
A Generalized Vertex Operator Algebra for Heisenberg Intertwiners
(2011)We consider the extension of the Heisenberg vertex operator algebra by all its irreducible modules. We give an elementary construction for the intertwining vertex operators and show that they satisfy a complex parametrized ... 
Generation of a panel of high affinity antibodies and development of a biosensorbased immunoassay for the detection of okadaic acid in shellfish
(Elsevier, 20150710)Okadaic acid (OA) and its derivatives, DTX1 and DTX2, are marine biotoxins associated with diarrhetic shellfish poisoning. Routine monitoring of these toxins relies on the mouse bioassay. However, due to the technical ... 
Generation of rationallydesigned nerve growth factor (NGF) variants with receptor specificity
(Elsevier, 20171103)Nerve growth factor (NGF) is the prototypic member of the neurotrophin family and binds two receptors, TrkA and the 75 kDa neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR), through which diverse and sometimes opposing effects are mediated. ... 
Gent models for the inflation of spherical balloons
(Elsevier, 2015)We revisit an iconic deformation of nonlinear elasticity: the inflation of a rubber spherical thin shell. We use the 3parameter Mooney and GentGent (GG) phenomenological models to explain the stretchstrain curve of a ... 
Genus Two Meromorphic Conformal Field Theory
(1999)We construct the genus two (or two loop) partition function for meromorphic bosonic conformal field theories. We use a sewing procedure involving two genus one tori by exploiting an explicit relationship between the genus ... 
Genus Two Partition and Correlation Functions for Fermionic Vertex Operator Superalgebras I
(2010)We define the partition and $n$point correlation functions for a vertex operator superalgebra on a genus two Riemann surface formed by sewing two tori together. For the free fermion vertex operator superalgebra we obtain ...
