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 ... 
The Genus Two Partition Function for Free Bosonic and Lattice Vertex Operator Algebras
(2007)We define the $n$point function for a vertex operator algebra on a genus two Riemann surface in two separate sewing schemes where either two tori are sewn together or a handle is sewn to one torus. We explicitly obtain ... 
Glauberman's and Thompson's theorems for fusion systems
(American Mathematical Society, 200902)We prove analogues of results of Glauberman and Thompson for fusion systems. As a corollary, we obtain a stronger form of Frobenius' theorem for fusion systems, applicable under the above assumptions and generalizing another ... 
The gluing problem for some block fusion systems
(2010)We answer the gluing problem of blocks of finite groups (Linckelmann (2004) [7, 4.2]) for tame blocks and the principal pblock of PSL 3 ( p ) for p odd. In particular, we show that the gluing problem for the principal ... 
Glycoclusters as lectin inhibitors: comparative analysis on two plant agglutinins with different folding as a step towards rules for selectivity
(Elsevier, 20150923)The emerging physiological significance of carbohydrate (glycan) protein (lectin) recognition engenders the interest to design synthetic inhibitors with a high level of selectivity among natural sugar receptors. Plant ... 
A high rate tension device for characterizing brain tissue
(SAGE Journals, 20120308)The mechanical characterization of brain tissue at high loading velocities is vital for understanding and modeling traumatic brain injury. The most severe form of traumatic brain injury is diffuse axonal injury, which ... 
High Time Resolution Astrophysics in the Extremely Large Telescope Era : White Paper
(2010)High Time Resolution Astrophysics (HTRA) concerns itself with observations on short scales normally defined as being lower than the conventional readout time of a CCD. As such it is concerned with condensed objects such ... 
Highresolution analysis of parentoforigin allelic expression in the Arabidopsis endosperm.
(2011)Genomic imprinting is an epigenetic phenomenon leading to parentoforigin specific differential expression of maternally and paternally inherited alleles. In plants, genomic imprinting has mainly been observed in the ... 
A highspeed bipolar outflow from the archetypical pulsating star Mira A
(2009)Optical images and highdispersion spectra have been obtained of the ejected material surrounding the pulsating AGB star Mira A. The two streams of knots on either side of the star, found in far ultraviollet (FUV) GALEX ... 
Hightime Resolution Astrophysics and Pulsars
(2008)The discovery of pulsars in 1968 heralded an era where the temporal characteristics of detectors had to be reassessed. Up to this point detector integration times would normally be measured in minutes rather seconds and ... 
Higher torsion in the Abelianization of the full Bianchi groups
(Cambridge University Press (Cambridge Journals Online), 201309)Denote by Q(rootm), with m a squarefree positive integer, an imaginary quadratic number field, and by Om its ring of integers. The Bianchi groups are the groups SL2(Om). In the literature, so far there have been no ... 
Highlight Talk: Recent Results from VERITAS
(2009)VERITAS is a stateoftheart groundbased gammaray observatory that operates in the very highenergy (VHE) region of 100 GeV to 50 TeV. The observatory consists of an array of four 12mdiameter imaging atmospheric Cherenkov ... 
Homo and Heterometallic planes, chains and cubanes.
(RSC, 20130524)The synthesis, structural and magnetic characterisation of a family of homo and heterometallic complexes constructed with the Schiff base ligands 2iminomethyl6methoxyphenol (L1H) and 2imino6methoxyphenol (L2H), ... 
The homological torsion of PSL_2 of the imaginary quadratic integers
(2013)The Bianchi groups are the groups (P)SL2 over a ring of integers in an imaginary quadratic number field. We reveal a correspondence between the homological torsion of the Bianchi groups and new geometric invariants, which ... 
Homology and Ktheory of the Bianchi groups
(2011)We reveal a correspondence between the homological torsion of the Bianchi groups and new geometric invariants, which are effectively computable thanks to their action on hyperbolic space. We use it to explicitly compute ... 
How stable are amphiphilic dendrimers at the liquid liquid interface?
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013)By means of molecular dynamics simulations the free energy of adsorption of model dendrimer characterized by monomers of different chemical affinity is predicted as a function of the number and position of the monomers. ... 
HSP72 Protects Cells from ER Stressinduced Apoptosis via Enhancement of IRE1¿XBP1 Signaling through a Physical Interaction
(2010)Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is a feature of secretory cells and of many diseases including cancer, neurodegeneration, and diabetes. Adaptation to ER stress depends on the activation of a signal transduction pathway ... 
Hyperelastic and viscoelastic properties of brain tissue in tension
(ASME, 2012)Mechanical characterization of brain tissue at high loading velocities is particularly important for modelling Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). During severe impact conditions, brain tissue experiences a mixture of compression, ...
