Oblique wrinkles
(The Royal Society Publishing, 20170403)We prove theoretically that when a soft solid is subjected to an extreme deformation, wrinkles can form on its surface at an angle that is oblique to a principal direction of stretch. These oblique wrinkles occur for a ... 
Observation of Extended VHE Emission from the Supernova Remnant IC 443 with VERITAS
(2009)We present evidence that the veryhighenergy (VHE, E > 100 GeV) gammaray emission coincident with the supernova remnant IC 443 is extended. IC 443 contains one of the beststudied sites of supernova remnant/molecular ... 
Observation of gammaray emission from the galaxy M87 above 250 GeV with VERITAS
(2008)The multiwavelength observation of the nearby radio galaxy M87 provides a unique opportunity to study in detail processes occurring in Active Galactic Nuclei from radio waves to TeV gammarays. Here we report the detection ... 
Observations of the shelltype SNR Cassiopeia A at TeV energies with VERITAS
(2010)We report on observations of very highenergy gamma rays from the shelltype supernova remnant Cassiopeia A with the VERITAS stereoscopic array of four imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes in Arizona. The total exposure ... 
Observations of the Unidentified TeV GammaRay Source TeV J2032+4130 with the Whipple Observatory 10 m Telescope
(2006)We report on observations of the sky region around the unidentified TeV gammaray source TeV J2032+4130 carried out with the Whipple Observatory 10 m atmospheric Cherenkov telescope for a total of 65.5 hrs between 2003 and ... 
Old dog, new tricks: 2,2'biphenol as a bridging and bookend ligand in discrete and extended Co(II) architectures
(RSC, 20120201)We report the first Co(ii) based discrete and extended network materials comprising the 2,2[prime or minute]biphenol ligand. We first present the synthesis and magnetic characterisation of the Co(ii) dinuclear complexes ... 
On a question of Serre
(2012)Consider an imaginary quadratic number field Q(root m), with m a squarefree positive integer, and its ring of integers {O} . The Bianchi groups are the groups SL2{O}. Further consider the BorelSerre compactification [7] ... 
On anisotropic elasticity and questions concerning its Finite Element implementation
(Springer, 20130521)We give conditions on the strainenergy function of nonlinear anisotropic hyperelastic materials that ensure compatibility with the classical linear theories of anisotropic elasticity. We uncover the limitations associated ... 
On deforming a sector of a circular cylindrical tube into an intact tube: Existence, uniqueness, and stability
(Elsevier, 201011)Within the context of finite deformation elasticity theory the problem of deforming an open sector of a thickwalled circular cylindrical tube into a complete circular cylindrical tube is analyzed. The analysis provides a ... 
On Genus Two Riemann Surfaces Formed from Sewn Tori
(2006)We describe the period matrix and other data on a higher genus Riemann surface in terms of data coming from lower genus surfaces via an explicit sewing procedure. We consider in detail the construction of a genus two Riemann ... 
On Level One Cuspidal Bianchi Modular Forms
(2013)In this paper, we present the outcome of vast computer calculations, locating several of the very rare instances of level one cuspidal Bianchi modular forms that are not lifts of elliptic modular forms. 
On magnetoacoustic waves in finitely deformed elastic solids
(SAGE Journals, 2011)In this paper, in the context of the quasimagnetostatic approximation, we examine incremental motions superimposed on a static finite deformation of a magnetoelastic material in the presence of an applied magnetic field. ... 
On residual stresses and homeostasis: an elastic theory of functional adaptation in living matter
(Nature Publishing Group, 20160426)Living matter can functionally adapt to external physical factors by developing internal tensions, easily revealed by cutting experiments. Nonetheless, residual stresses intrinsically have a complex spatial distribution, ... 
On stressdependent elastic moduli and wave speeds
(Oxford University Press, 2013)On the basis of the general nonlinear theory of a hyperelastic material with initial stress, initially without consideration of the origin of the initial stress, we determine explicit expressions for the stressdependent ... 
On stressdependent elastic moduli and wave speeds
(Oxford Journals, 20120330)On the basis of the general nonlinear theory of a hyperelastic material with initial stress, initially without consideration of the origin of the initial stress, we determine explicit expressions for the stressdependent ... 
On the Abaqus FEA model of finite viscoelasticity
(American Chemical Society, 200905)Predictions of the QLV (QuasiLinear Viscoelastic) constitutive law are compared with those of the ABAQUS viscoelastic model for two simple motions in order to highlight, in particular, their very different dissipation ... 
On the application of robust numerical methods to a complete flow wavecurrent model. Boundary and Interior Layers ONERA
(2004)We aim to show how parameterrobust numerical method may be employed to solve equations arising in the modelling of wavecurrent interactions.We present two such models: a complete flow model for wavecurrent interaction ... 
On the composition product of saturated fusion systems
(Elsevier, 201111)We say that a fusion system is the composition product of two subsystems if every morphism can be factored as a morphism in one fusion system followed by a morphism in the other. We establish a relationship between the ... 
On the equivariant Khomology of PSL_2 of the imaginary quadratic integers
(Association des Annales de l'Institut Fourier, 201609)We establish formulae for the part due to torsion of the equivariant $K$homology of all the Bianchi groups (PSL$_2$ of the imaginary quadratic integers), in terms of elementary numbertheoretic quantities. To achieve this, ... 
On the rectilinear shear of compressible and incompressible elastic slabs
(2010)We review some pseudoplanar deformations for the equations of incompressible isotropic nonlinear elasticity first introduced in 1985 by Rajagopal and Wineman. We extend this class of deformations to compressible isotropic ...
