John Todd and the development of modern numerical analysis
(2012)The purpose of this article is to mark the centenary of the birth of John Todd, a pioneer in the fields of numerical analysis and computational science. A brief account is given of his early life and career, and that of ... 
Large acoustoelastic effect
(Elsevier, 201203)Classical acoustoelasticity couples smallamplitude elastic wave propagation to an infinitesimal predeformation, in order to reveal and evaluate nondestructively thirdorder elasticity constants. Here, we see that ... 
Large amplitude Love waves
(Oxford Journals, 20080422)In the context of the finite elasticity theory, we consider a model for compressible solids called 'compressible neoHookean material'. We show how finiteamplitude inhomogeneous plane wave solutions and finiteamplitude ... 
Learning latent semantic relations from clickthrough data for query suggestion
(2008)For a given query raised by a specific user, the Query Suggestion technique aims to recommend relevant queries which potentially suit the information needs of that user. Due to the complexity of the Web structure and the ... 
Lower bounds on the nonClifford resources for quantum computations
(IOP Publishing, 20200528)Treating stabilizer operations as free, we establish lower bounds on the number of resource states, also known as magic states, needed to perform various quantum computing tasks. Our bounds apply to adaptive computations ... 
A mathematical model for the release of peptidebinding drugs from affinity hydrogels
(Palgrave, 20150109)A mathematical model for the release of peptidebinding drugs from affinity hydrogels is analyzed in detail. The model is not specific to any particular peptide/drug/gel system, and can describe drug release from a large ... 
A Maximal Eigenvalue Method for Detecting Process Representative Genes by Integrating Data from Multiple Sources
(2008)An important problem in computational biology is the identification of candidate genes which can be considered as representative of the different cellular processes taking place in the cell as it evolves through time. ... 
Measuring knife stab penetration into skin simulant using a novel biaxial tension device
(Elsevier, 2008)This paper describes the development and use of a biaxial measurement device to analyse the mechanics of knife stabbings. In medicolegal situations it is typical to describe the consequences of a stabbing incident in ... 
Measuring the linear and nonlinear elastic properties of brain tissue with shear waves and inverse analysis
(Springer, 20150220)We use supersonic shear wave imaging (SSI) technique to measure not only the linear but also the nonlinear elastic properties of brain matter. Here, we tested six porcine brains ex vivo and measured the velocities of the ... 
Mechanical characterization of brain tissue in compression at dynamic strain rates
(Elsevier, 20120302)Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when local mechanical load exceeds certain tolerance levels for brain tissue. Extensive research has been done previously for brain matter experiencing compression at quasistatic loading; ... 
Mechanical characterization of brain tissue in simple shear at dynamic strain rates
(Elsevier, 201312)During severe impact conditions, brain tissue experiences a rapid and complex deformation, which can be seen as a mixture of compression, tension and shear. Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) occurs in animals and humans when ... 
Mechanical characterization of brain tissue in tension at dynamic strain rates
(Elsevier, 20120910)Mechanical characterization of brain tissue at high loading velocities is crucial for modeling Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). During severe impact conditions, brain tissue experiences compression, tension and shear. Limited ... 
Mechanical properties of excised human skin
(Springer Verlag, 2010)In this study we have investigated in influence of location, gender and orientation on the deformation characteristics of 55 samples of human excised skin. Uniaxial tensile tests were carried out at a strain rate of ... 
Methodical fitting for mathematical models of rubberlike materials
(The Royal Society Publishing, 20170208)A great variety of models can describe the nonlinear response of rubber to uniaxial tension. Yet an indepth understanding of the successive stages of large extension is still lacking. We show that the response can be ... 
Minimal characteristic bisets and finite groups realizing RuizViruel exotic fusion systems
(Elsevier, 2011)Continuing our previous work (Park, 2010) [2], we determine a minimal left characteristic biset X for every exotic fusion system FF on the extraspecial group S of order 73 and exponent 7 discovered by Ruiz and Viruel (2004) ... 
Mining social networks using heat diffusion processes for marketing candidates selection
(ACM, 2008)Social Network Marketing techniques employ preexisting social networks to increase brands or products awareness through wordofmouth promotion. Full understanding of social network marketing and the potential candidates ... 
The mod 2 cohomology rings of SL2 of the imaginary quadratic integers
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 20150928)We establish general dimension formulae for the second page of the equivariant spectral sequence of the action of the SL2 groups over imaginary quadratic integers on their associated symmetric space. By way of doing this, ... 
Models for overdispersed data in entomology
(Springer, Cham, 20140917)Entomological data are often overdispersed, characterised by a larger variance than assumed by simple standard models. It is important to model overdispersion properly in order to avoid incorrect and misleading inferences. ... 
Modified multiplicative decomposition model for tissue growth: Beyond the initial stressfree state
(Elsevier, 20180519)The multiplicative decomposition model is widely employed for predicting residual stresses and morphologies of biological tissues due to growth. However, it relies on the assumption that the tissue is initially in a ...
