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 ... 
Geothermal structural geology in New Zealand: Innovative characterisation and microanalytical techniques
(International Geothermal Association, 20161123)Many of New Zealand's geothermal reservoirs are hosted in rocks with low intrinsic permeability. As such, successful development of these resources relies on understanding the role subsurface structures, such as fractures ... 
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 ... 
Guided waves in prestressed hyperelastic plates and tubes: Application to the ultrasound elastography of thinwalled soft materials
(Elsevier, 20170217)In vivo measurement of the mechanical properties of thinwalled soft tissues (e.g., mitral valve, artery and bladder) and in situ mechanical characterization of thinwalled artificial soft biomaterials in service are of ... 
H2 generation and sulfide to sulfoxide oxidation in H2O using sunlight with a model photoelectrosynthesis cell
(Elsevier, 20141028)A summary of the recent advances in homogeneous lightdriven catalytic oxidation reactions is provided either using sacrificial agents or with complete functional cells. In this work, a photoelectrosynthesis model cell ... 
Heterogeneity of structure and stress in the Rotokawa Geothermal Field, New Zealand
(American Geophysical Union (AGU), 20150212)Geometric characterization of a geothermal reservoir's structures, and their relation to stress field orientation, is vital for resource development. Subsurface structure and stress field orientations of the Rotokawa ... 
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 ... 
A highpressure rapid compression machine study of npropylbenzene ignition
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 20130828)This study presents new ignition delay data measured in a rapid compression machine over a wide range temperature, pressure and fuel/air ratio. This data is an extension of that measured previously (D. Darcy, C.J. Tobin, ... 
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), ...
