Exceptional Vertex Operator Algebras and the Virasoro Algebra
(2008)We consider exceptional vertex operator algebras for which particular Casimir vectors constructed from the primary vectors of lowest conformal weight are Virasoro descendants of the vacuum. We discuss constraints on these ... 
Expansions of CAG·CTG repeats in immortalized human astrocytes.
(Oxford University Press, 2007)Expansions of trinucleotide repeats (TNRs) are the genetic cause for a number of neurodegenerative disorders. In some of these diseases, ongoing somatic expansions in the brain are thought to contribute to disease progression. ... 
Experimental characterisation of neural tissue at collision speeds
(International Research Council on Biomechanics of Injury (IRCOBI), 2012)Mechanical characterisation 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, ... 
Explicit secular equation for Scholte waves over a monoclinic crystal
(Elsevier, 2004)Scholte waves are acoustic waves propagating at a fluid/solid interface. They are localized in the neighborhood of the phase boundary in the sense that they decay exponentially in both directions along the normal to the ... 
The explicit secular equation for surface acoustic waves in monoclinic elastic crystals
(Acoustical Society of America, 20010125)The secular equation for surface acoustic waves propagating on a monoclinic elastic halfspace is derived in a direct manner, using the method of first integrals. Although the motion is at first assumed to correspond to ... 
Explicit secular equations for piezoacoustic surface waves: Rayleigh modes
(American Institute of Physics, 20050906)The existence of a twopartial Rayleigh wave coupled to an electrical field in 2 mm piezoelectric crystals is known but has rarely been investigated analytically. It turns out that the Z cut X propagation problem can be ... 
Explicit secular equations for piezoacoustic surface waves: Shearhorizontal modes
(AIP Publishing, 20050906)The existence of a twopartial Rayleigh wave coupled to an electrical field in 2 mm piezoelectric crystals is known but has rarely been investigated analytically. It turns out that the Z cut X propagation problem can be ... 
A Fbridged Mn(II) molecular square
(RSC, 20091008)We report on a tetranuclear Mn(II) complex possessing a Fbridged molecular square topology directed by 1,10phenanthroline ligands. 
A family of doublebowl pseudo metallocalix[6]arene discs
(RSC, 20100310)We report the synthesis and magnetic characterisation of a series of planar [M7] (M = NiII, ZnII) disc complexes [Ni7(OH)6(L1)6](NO3)2 (1), [Ni7(OH)6(L1)6](NO3)2·2MeOH (2), [Ni7(OH)6(L1)6](NO3)2·3MeNO2 (3), [Ni7(OH)6(L2) ... 
Features and purposes of mathematical proofs in the view of novice students: observations from proof validation and evaluation performances
(20101222)This thesis describes a comprehensive exploratory study of the approaches taken by novice students to the validation and evaluation of mathematical proofs. A theoretical framework based on sociocultural learning theories ... 
Ferromagnetic exchange in a twisted, oximebridged [Mn(III)2] dimer
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 20120502)The dimeric complex [MnIII2(Naphthsao)2(NaphthsaoH)2(MeOH)2][middle dot]4MeOH (1[middle dot]4MeOH), acts as a simple model complex with which to examine the magnetostructural relationship in polymetallic, oximebridged ... 
Finite amplitude elastic waves propagating in compressible solids
(2005)The paper studies the interaction of a longitudinal wave with transverse waves in general isotropic and unconstrained hyperelastic materials, including the possibility of dissipation. The dissipative term chosen is similar ... 
Finite amplitude inhomogeneous waves in MooneyRivlin viscoelastic solids
(Elsevier, 200409)New exact solutions are exhibited within the framework of finite viscoelasticity. More precisely, the solutions correspond to finiteamplitude, transverse, linearly polarized, inhomogeneous motions superposed upon a finite ... 
Finiteamplitude inhomogeneous plane waves in a deformed MooneyRivlin material
(Oxford University Press, 2002)The propagation of finiteamplitude linearlypolarized inhomogeneous transverse plane waves is considered for a MooneyRivlin material maintained in a state of finite static homogeneous deformation. It is shown that such ... 
Finiteamplitude inhomogeneous plane waves of exponential type in incompressible elastic materials
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 199905)It is proved that elliptically polarized finiteamplitude inhomogeneous plane waves may not propagate in an elastic material subject to the constraint of incompressibility. The waves considered are harmonic in time and ... 
The First VERITAS Telescope
(2006)The first atmospheric Cherenkov telescope of VERITAS (the Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System) has been in operation since February 2005. We present here a technical description of the instrument and a ... 
A fluorescence anisotropy method for measuring protein concentration in complex cell culture media
(Elsevier, 20140312)The rapid, quantitative analysis of the complex cell culture media used in biopharmaceutical manufacturing is of critical importance. Requirements for cell culture media composition profiling, or changes in specific analyte ... 
Fluorescence EEM Spectroscopy for Rapid Identification and Quality Evaluation of Cell Culture Media Components.
(Ingenta, 201111)The application of fluorescence excitationemission matrix (EEM) spectroscopy to the quantitative analysis of complex, aqueous solutions of cell culture media components was investigated. These components, yeastolate, ... 
Fluorescence emission from petroleum; a valuable information source for petroleum analysis.
(EniTecnologie, 2004)Despite the fact that most crude oils are dark coloured liquids, many are observed to be strongly fluorescent when illuminated with UV light. This fluorescence, which originates from the presence of aromatic compounds, is ...
