Accounting for the fringe magnetic field from the bending magnet in a Monte Carlo accelerator treatment head simulation
O' Shea, Tuathan P.; Foley, Mark J. (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
Destrade, Michel (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
Boyd, Aoife (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
Cheung, David L. (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 ... 
Alternating bimetallic Na/Mn covalent and ionic chains
Berg, Nelly; Jones, Leigh F. (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
Park, Sejong (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
Dooley, Cara; Hinde, John (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 ...

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
McCoy, Gary R.; Touzet, Nicolas; Fleming, Gerard T.; Raine, Robin (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
Destrade, Michel (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 ... 
Automated estimation of collagen fibre dispersion in the dermis and its contribution to the anisotropic behaviour of skin
Ní Annaidh, Aisling; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (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
Krnjajic, Milovan (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 ... 
Bending instabilities of soft biological tissues
Destrade, Michel; Ní Annaidh, Aisling (Elsevier, 20091215)Rubber components and soft biological tissues are often subjected to large bending deformations while 'in service'. The circumferential line elements on the inner face of a bent block can contract up to a certain critical ... 
Bi to tetravalent glycoclusters: synthesis, structureactivity profiles as lectin inhibitors and impact of combining both valency and headgroup tailoring on selectivity.
Wang, GuanNan; Murphy, Paul V. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 20120629)The emerging functional versatility of cellular glycans makes research on the design of synthetic inhibitors a timely topic. In detail, the combination of ligand (or headgroup or contact site) structure with spatial ... 
Bimodular rubber buckles early in bending
Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D.; Motherway, Julie A. (Elsevier, 20091203)A block of rubber eventually buckles under severe flexure, and several axial wrinkles appear on the inner curved face of the bent block. Experimental measurements reveal that the buckling occurs earlier  at lower compressive ... 
Bioassay models with natural mortality and random effects
Hinde, John (2011)In fitting doseresponse models to entomological data it is often necessary to take account of natural mortality and/or overdispersion. The standard approach to handle natural mortality is to use Abbott¿s formula. Standard ... 
Bioassays with natural mortality: handling overdispersion using random effects
Hinde, John (2011)In fitting doseresponse models to entomological data it is often necessary to take account of natural mortality and/or overdispersion. The standard approach to handle natural mortality is to use Abbott's formula (Abbott, ... 
BleusteinGulyaev waves in some functionally graded materials
Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 20060228)Functionally Graded Materials are inhomogeneous elastic bodies whose properties vary continuously with space. Hence consider a halfspace (x2>0) occupied by a special Functionally Graded Material made of an hexagonal (6 ... 
Bordetella pertussis expresses a functional type III secretion system that subverts protective innate and adaptive immune responses
Boyd, Aoife (American Society for Microbiology, 200801)Certain bacteria use a type III secretion system (TTSS) to deliver effector proteins that interfere with cell function into host cells. While transcription of genes encoding TTSS components has been demonstrated, studies ... 
The bosonic vertex operator algebra on a genus g Riemann surface
Tuite, Michael P.; Zuevsky, Alexander (201108)We discuss the partition function for the Heisenberg vertex operator algebra on a genus g Riemann surface formed by sewing handles to a Riemann sphere. In particular, it is shown how the partition can be computed by means ...
