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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 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 ... 
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 ...
