The 2008 Outburst in the Young Stellar System Z CMa: The First Detection of Twin Jets
(2010)The Z CMa binary is understood to undergo both FU Orionis (FUOR) and EX Orionis (EXOR) type outbursts. While the SE component has been spectro scopically identified as an FUOR, the NW component, a Herbig Be star, is the ... 
The 2009 multiwavelength campaign on Mrk 421: variability and correlation studies
(EDP Sciences, 20150417)Aims. We perform an extensive characterization of the broadband emission of Mrk 421, as well as its temporal evolution, during the nonflaring (low) state. The high brightness and nearby location (z = 0.031) of Mrk 421 ... 
Accessing the cohomology of discrete groups above their virtual cohomological dimension
(2014)We introduce a method to explicitly determine the FarrellTate cohomology of discrete groups. We apply this method to the Coxeter triangle and tetrahedral groups as well as to the Bianchi groups, i.e. PSL_2 over the ring ... 
Accounting for the fringe magnetic field from the bending magnet in a Monte Carlo accelerator treatment head simulation
(American Institute of Physics, 2011)Purpose: Monte Carlo (MC) simulation can be used for accurate electron beam treatment planning and modeling. Measurement of large electron fields, with the applicator removed and secondary collimator wide open, has been ... 
Acoustic waves at the interface of a prestressed incompressible elastic solid and a viscous fluid
(Elsevier, 20061110)We analyse the influence of prestress on the propagation of interfacial waves along the boundary of an incompressible hyperelastic halfspace that is in contact with a viscous fluid extending to infinity in the adjoining ... 
Adenylate cyclase toxin from Bordetella pertussis synergizes with lipopolysaccharide to promote innate interleukin10 production and enhances the induction of Th2 and regulatory T cells
(American Society for Microbiology, 200403)Adenylate cyclase toxin (CyaA) from Bordetella pertussis can subvert host immune responses allowing bacterial colonization. Here we have examined its adjuvant and immunomodulatory properties and the possible contribution ... 
Aggregation of nanoparticles on one and twocomponent bilayer membranes
(AIP Publishing, 2014)Using dissipative particle dynamics simulations the aggregation of nanoparticles on single and twocomponent bilayers is investigated. For a uniform bilayer the aggregation of nanoparticlesdepends strongly on the location ... 
Allelopathic interactions between the brown algal genus lobophora (dictyotales, phaeophyceae) and scleractinian corals
(Nature Publishing Group, 20160105)Allelopathy has been recently suggested as a mechanism by which macroalgae may outcompete corals in damaged reefs. Members of the brown algal genus Lobophora are commonly observed in close contact with scleractinian corals ... 
Alternating bimetallic Na/Mn covalent and ionic chains
(RSC, 20100730)The first coordination polymers constructed using the 2,2'biphenol ligand are described along with their ionic supramolecular counterparts. 
Analogues of Goldschmidt's thesis for fusion systems
(Elsevier, 20101215)We extend the results of David Goldschmidt's thesis concerning fusion in finite groups to saturated fusion systems and to all primes. 
Analysis of an Observational Studies  An Example Using Data from the Irish Cancer Registry
(2011)The study presented below aimed to compare survival of colorectal cancer patients against survival of a subpopulation with a secondary disease, in ammatory bowel disease (IBD). The data were taken from a observational ...

Analysis of hydrocarbon bearing fluid inclusions HCFI) using timeresolved fluorescence spectroscopy
(Society of Photooptical Instrumentation Engineers, 2005)Hydrocarbonbearing fluid inclusions (HCFI) are microscopic cavities within rocks that are filled with petroleum oil, the composition of which may not have changed since the trapping event. Thus, the composition of that ... 
Analyzing timecourse microarray data using functional data analysis  a review
(Statistical Applications in Genetics and Molecular Biology, 201105)Gene expression over time can be viewed as a continuous process and therefore represented as a continuous curve or function. Functional data analysis (FDA) is a statistical methodology used to analyze functional data ... 
Anisotropy resolved multidimensional emission spectroscopy (ARMES): A new tool for protein analysis
(Elsevier, 20150730)Structural analysis of proteins using the emission of intrinsic fluorophores is complicated by spectral overlap. Anisotropy resolved multidimensional emission spectroscopy (ARMES) overcame the overlap problem by the use ... 
An assessment of RNA content in Prymnesium parvum, Prymnesium polylepis, cf. Chattonella sp. and Karlodinium veneficum under varying environmental conditions for calibrating an RNA microarray for species detection
(Wiley, 20140203)Traditional methods of identification and enumeration can be somewhat ambiguous when identifying phytoplankton that requires electron microscopic examination to verify specific morphological features. Members of the genus ... 
Asymptotic results for bifurcations in pure bending of rubber blocks
(Oxford Journals, 200803)The bifurcation of an incompressible neoHookean thick block with a ratio of thickness to length n, subject to pure bending, is considered. The two incremental equilibrium equations corresponding to a nonlinear prebuckling ... 
At least three invariants are necessary to model the mechanical response of incompressible, transversely isotropic materials
(Springer, 20130418)The modelling of offaxis simple tension experiments on transversely isotropic nonlinearly elastic materials is considered. A testing protocol is proposed where normal force is applied to one edge of a rectangular specimen ... 
Automated estimation of collagen fibre dispersion in the dermis and its contribution to the anisotropic behaviour of skin
(Springer, 201208)Collagen fibres play an important role in the mechanical behaviour of many soft tissues. Modelling of such tissues now often incorporates a collagen fibre distribution. However, the availability of accurate structural data ... 
Bayesian Model Specification: Some problems related to model choice and calibration
(2011)In the development of Bayesian model specification for inference and prediction we focus on the conditional distributions p([theta],[beta]) and p(D[theta],[beta]), with data D and background assumptions [beta], and ...
