  • Long-term inter-annual variability of a cyclonic gyre in the western Irish Sea 

    Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Hartnett, Michael; Dabrowski, Tomasz (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2011-05-26)
    The western Irish Sea gyre (WISG) is a cyclonic baroclinic flow around a dome of stagnant water which develops each year during the heating season in the western Irish Sea. Research was carried out to determine long-term ...
  • A Machine Learning Application for Classification of Chemical Spectra 

    Madden, Michael G.; Howley, Tom (2008)
    This paper presents a software package that allows chemists to analyze spectroscopy data using innovative machine learning (ML) techniques. The package, designed for use in conjunction with lab-based spectroscopic ...
  • Managing Digital Image Collections from your TV-Set: A State-of-Art Review 

    Corcoran, Peter; Callaly, Frank; Bigioi, Petronel (IEEE, 2007-07-14)
    The problem of managing growing digital image collections is discussed in the context of a home user. The use of a conventional television set as both a viewing and management tool is discussed. The problem of linking ...
  • Managing enterprise networks: Support structures for SMEs 

    Cormican, Kathryn (2005)
    In an increasingly competitive global economy, small to medium sized enterprises (SME) realise that they must work together in order to survive. They must learn to share their experiences and knowledge and pool their ...
  • Managing Resources for Better Behaved Robots 

    Kennelly, Ronan; Morgan, Fearghal; Galvin, Martin (2006)
    This paper presents an architecture based on features of the QNX real-time operating system (RTOS) that translate directly into aspects of a behaviour-based robotic model.Significant research effort has been expended on ...
  • Mannosylated Polyethyleneimine-Hyaluronan Nanohybrids for Targeted Gene Delivery to Macrophage-Like Cell Lines
