  • 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, 2009-12-15)
    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 ...
  • Bimodular rubber buckles early in bending 

    Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D.; Motherway, Julie A. (Elsevier, 2009-12-03)
    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 dose-response 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 dose-response 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, ...
  • Bleustein-Gulyaev waves in some functionally graded materials 

    Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2006-02-28)
    Functionally Graded Materials are inhomogeneous elastic bodies whose properties vary continuously with space. Hence consider a half-space (x2>0) occupied by a special Functionally Graded Material made of an hexagonal (6 ...
  • The BMR freeness conjecture for the 2-reflection groups 

    Marin, Ivan; Pfeiffer, Götz (American Mathematical Society, 2016-10-12)
    We prove the freeness conjecture of Broue, Malle and Rouquier for the Hecke algebras associated to the primitive complex 2-reflection groups with a single conjugacy class of reflections.
  • The bosonic vertex operator algebra on a genus g Riemann surface 

    Tuite, Michael P.; Zuevsky, Alexander (2011-08)
    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 ...
  • Catastrophic thinning of dielectric elastomers 

    Zurlo, G.; Destrade, Michel; DeTommasi, M.; Puglisi, G. (American Physical Society, 2017-02-15)
    We provide an energetic insight into the catastrophic nature of thinning instability in soft electroactive elastomers. This phenomenon is a major obstacle to the development of giant actuators, yet it is neither completely ...
  • Cell complexes database for the Bianchi groups 

    Rahm, Alexander D. (NUI Galway, 2016-05-18)
    This is a database of quotients by Bianchi groups of two-dimensional cellular equivariant retracts of Hyperbolic three-space. The Bianchi groups SL(2, A), with A the ring of integers in the imaginary quadratic number field ...
  • A census of human soluble protein complexes 

    Yang, Haixuan (Elsevier, 2012-08-11)
    Cellular processes often depend on stable physical associations between proteins. Despite recent progress, knowledge of the composition of human protein complexes remains limited. To close this gap, we applied an integrative ...
  • Characterising the anisotropic mechanical properties of excised human skin 

    Ní Annaidh, Aisling; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (2012)
    The mechanical properties of skin are important for a number of applications including surgery, dermatology, impact biomechanics and forensic science. In this study, we have investigated the influence of location and ...
  • Characteristic classes of complexified bundles 

    Rahm, Alexander D. (Summer School in Algebraic Topology: Sheaf theoretic methods in the theory of characteristic classes, 2007)
    We examine the topological characteristic cohomology classes of complexified vector bundles . In particular, all the classes coming from real vector bundles are computed. We use characteristic classes with the ax-ioms of ...
  • Circularly-polarized plane waves in a deformed Hadamard material 

    Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2001-10-31)
    Small-amplitude inhomogeneous plane waves propagating in any direction in a homogeneously deformed Hadamard material are considered. Conditions for circular polarization are established. The analysis relies on the use of ...
  • (Co)homologies et K-théorie de groupes de Bianchi par des modèles géométriques calculatoires 

    Rahm, Alexander D. (Université de Grenoble / Universität Göttingen, 2010-10-15)
    Cette thèse consiste d'une étude de la géométrie d'une certaine classe de groupes arithmétiques, à travers d'une action propre sur un espace contractile. Nous calculons explicitement leur homologie de groupe, et leur ...
  • Cohomology of Coxeter arrangements and Solomon's descent algebra 

    Douglass, J. Matthew; Pfeiffer, Götz; Röhrle, Gerhard (American Mathematical Society, 2014-06-19)
    We refine a conjecture by Lehrer and Solomon on the structure of the Orlik-Solomon algebra of a finite Coxeter group W and relate it to the descent algebra of W. As a result, we claim that both the group algebra of W and ...
  • A combined experimental and numerical study of stab-penetration forces 

    Ní Annaidh, Aisling; Cassidy, Mary; Curtis, Michael; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (Elsevier, 2013-12)
    The magnitude of force used in a stabbing incident can be difficult to quantify, although the estimate given by forensic pathologists is often seen as 'critical' evidence in medico-legal situations. The main objective of ...
  • Compact travelling waves in viscoelastic solids 

    Destrade, Michel (IOP Science, 2009-09-02)
    We introduce a model for nonlinear viscoelastic solids, for which travelling shear waves with compact support are possible. Using analytical and numerical methods, we investigate the general case of this model, and an ...
  • Complexifiable characteristic classes 

    Rahm, Alexander D. (Springer, 2014-01)
    We examine the topological characteristic cohomology classes of complexified vector bundles. In particular, all the classes coming from the real vector bundles underlying the complexification are determined.
