  • Validation of the inhalable dust algorithm of the Advanced REACH Tool using a dataset from the pharmaceutical industry 

    Mc Donnell, Patricia E.; Coggins, Marie (RSC, 2011-05-04)
    As it is often difficult to obtain sufficient numbers of measurements to adequately characterise exposure levels, occupational exposure models may be useful tools in the exposure assessment process. This study aims to ...

  • VERITAS: Status and Highlights 

    Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (2011)
    The VERITAS telescope array has been operating smoothly since 2007, and has detected gamma-ray emission above 100 GeV from 40 astrophysical sources. These include blazars, pulsar wind nebulae, supernova remnants, gamma-ray ...
  • Vertex Operators and Modular Forms 

    Mason, Geoffrey; Tuite, Michael P. (2009)
    The leitmotif of these Notes is the idea of a vertex operator algebra (VOA) and the relationship between VOAs and elliptic functions and modular forms. This is to some extent analogous to the relationship between a finite ...
  • A Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Spectrum of 1ES 2344+514 

    Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (2005)
    The BL Lacertae (BL Lac) object 1ES 2344+514 (1ES 2344), at a redshift of 0.044, was discovered as a source of very high energy (VHE) gamma rays by the Whipple Collaboration in 1995 \citep{2344Catanese98}. This detection ...
  • Very High Energy Observations of Gamma-Ray Burst Locations with the Whipple Telescope 

    Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (2007)
    Gamma-ray burst (GRB) observations at very high energies (VHE, E > 100 GeV) can impose tight constraints on some GRB emission models. Many GRB afterglow models predict a VHE component similar to that seen in blazars and ...
