Bimodular rubber buckles early in bending
(Elsevier, 20091203)A block of rubber eventually buckles under severe flexure, and several axial wrinkles appear on the inner curved face of the bent block. Experimental measurements reveal that the buckling occurs earlier  at lower compressive ... 
Bioassay models with natural mortality and random effects
(2011)In fitting doseresponse models to entomological data it is often necessary to take account of natural mortality and/or overdispersion. The standard approach to handle natural mortality is to use Abbott¿s formula. Standard ... 
Bioassays with natural mortality: handling overdispersion using random effects
(2011)In fitting doseresponse models to entomological data it is often necessary to take account of natural mortality and/or overdispersion. The standard approach to handle natural mortality is to use Abbott's formula (Abbott, ... 
BleusteinGulyaev waves in some functionally graded materials
(Elsevier, 20060228)Functionally Graded Materials are inhomogeneous elastic bodies whose properties vary continuously with space. Hence consider a halfspace (x2>0) occupied by a special Functionally Graded Material made of an hexagonal (6 ... 
Bordetella pertussis expresses a functional type III secretion system that subverts protective innate and adaptive immune responses
(American Society for Microbiology, 200801)Certain bacteria use a type III secretion system (TTSS) to deliver effector proteins that interfere with cell function into host cells. While transcription of genes encoding TTSS components has been demonstrated, studies ... 
The bosonic vertex operator algebra on a genus g Riemann surface
(201108)We discuss the partition function for the Heisenberg vertex operator algebra on a genus g Riemann surface formed by sewing handles to a Riemann sphere. In particular, it is shown how the partition can be computed by means ... 
Cell complexes database for the Bianchi groups
(NUI Galway, 20160518)This is a database of quotients by Bianchi groups of twodimensional cellular equivariant retracts of Hyperbolic threespace. The Bianchi groups SL(2, A), with A the ring of integers in the imaginary quadratic number field ... 
Cell cycledependent mobility of Cdc45 in living cells determined by fluorescence correlation spectroscopy.
(Public Library of Science, 2012)Eukaryotic DNA replication is a dynamic process requiring the cooperation of specific replication proteins. We measured the mobility of eGFPCdc45 by Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) in vivo in asynchronous ... 
A census of human soluble protein complexes
(Elsevier, 20120811)Cellular processes often depend on stable physical associations between proteins. Despite recent progress, knowledge of the composition of human protein complexes remains limited. To close this gap, we applied an integrative ... 
Chain transfer to solvent in the radical polymerization of structurally diverse acrylamide monomers using straightchain and branched alcohols as solvents
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 20140102)Chain transfer to solvent in conventional radical polymerizations of Ntertbutylacrylamide (TBAM) and N(2morpholin4ylethyl) acrylamide (MEA) in a range of alcohol solvents is investigated. Mayo analysis of polymerization ... 
Characterising the anisotropic mechanical properties of excised human skin
(2012)The mechanical properties of skin are important for a number of applications including surgery, dermatology, impact biomechanics and forensic science. In this study, we have investigated the influence of location and ... 
Characteristic classes of complexified bundles
(Summer School in Algebraic Topology: Sheaf theoretic methods in the theory of characteristic classes, 2007)We examine the topological characteristic cohomology classes of complexified vector bundles . In particular, all the classes coming from real vector bundles are computed. We use characteristic classes with the axioms of ... 
Characterization of an extendable multileaf collimator for clinical electron beams
(Institute of Physics, 2011)An extendable xray multileaf collimator (eMLC) is investigated for collimation of electron beams on a linear accelerator. The conventional method of collimation using an electron applicator is impractical for conformal, ... 
Circular polarization of synchrotron radiation in high magnetic fields
(Oxford University Press, 20150417)The general model for incoherent synchrotron radiation has long been known, with the first theory being published by Westfold in 1959 and continued by Westfold and Legg in 1968. When this model was first developed, it was ... 
Circularlypolarized plane waves in a deformed Hadamard material
(Elsevier, 20011031)Smallamplitude inhomogeneous plane waves propagating in any direction in a homogeneously deformed Hadamard material are considered. Conditions for circular polarization are established. The analysis relies on the use of ... 
CO abundances in a protostellar cloud: freezeout and desorption in the envelope and outflow of L483
(2007)CO isotopes are able to probe the different components in protostellar clouds. These components, core, envelope and outflow have distinct physical conditions and sometimes more than one component contributes to the observed ... 
(Co)homologies et Kthéorie de groupes de Bianchi par des modèles géométriques calculatoires
(Université de Grenoble / Universität Göttingen, 20101015)Cette thèse consiste d'une étude de la géométrie d'une certaine classe de groupes arithmétiques, à travers d'une action propre sur un espace contractile. Nous calculons explicitement leur homologie de groupe, et leur ... 
A combined experimental and numerical study of stabpenetration forces
(Elsevier, 201312)The magnitude of force used in a stabbing incident can be difficult to quantify, although the estimate given by forensic pathologists is often seen as 'critical' evidence in medicolegal situations. The main objective of ... 
Combining glycocluster synthesis with protein engineering: an approach to probe into the significance of linker length in a tandemrepeattype lectin (galectin4)
(Elsevier, 20140507)Complementarity in lectinglycan interactions in situ is assumed to involve spatial features in both the lectin and the glycan, giving a functional meaning to structural aspects of the lectin beyond its carbohydratebinding ... 
Compact travelling waves in viscoelastic solids
(IOP Science, 20090902)We introduce a model for nonlinear viscoelastic solids, for which travelling shear waves with compact support are possible. Using analytical and numerical methods, we investigate the general case of this model, and an ...
