  • A mathematical model for the release of peptide-binding drugs from affinity hydrogels 

    Meere, Martin G. (Palgrave, 2015-01-09)
    A mathematical model for the release of peptide-binding 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 

    Yang, Haixuan (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 

    Destrade, Michel (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 

    Jiang, Yi; Li, Guoyang; Qian, Lin-Xue; Liang, Si; Destrade, Michel; Cao, Yanping (Springer, 2015-02-20)
    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 

    Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (Elsevier, 2012-03-02)
    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 

    Rashid, Badar; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (Elsevier, 2013-12)
    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 

    Rashid, B,Destrade, M,Gilchrist, MD; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (Elsevier, 2012-09-10)
    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 

    Ni Annaidh, Aisling; Ottenio, M.; Bruyere, K.; Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (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 ...
  • Minimal characteristic bisets and finite groups realizing Ruiz-Viruel exotic fusion systems 

    Park, Sejong (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 

    Yang, Haixuan (ACM, 2008)
    Social Network Marketing techniques employ pre-existing social networks to increase brands or products awareness through word-of-mouth promotion. Full understanding of social network marketing and the potential candidates ...
  • The mod 2 cohomology rings of SL2 of the imaginary quadratic integers 

    Rahm, Alexander D. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2015-09-28)
    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, ...
  • Monstrous and Generalized Moonshine and Permutation Orbifolds 

    Tuite, Michael P. (2008)
    We consider the application of permutation orbifold constructions towards a new possible understanding of the genus zero property in Monstrous and Generalized Moonshine. We describe a theory of twisted Hecke operators in ...
  • Multiples of Pfister forms 

    O'Shea, James (Elsevier, 2016-03-01)
    The isotropy of multiples of Pfister forms is studied. Some classical results are recalled and their consequences presented, with certain of these statements being previously known but hitherto unpublished. In particular, ...
  • NHDC and PHDC: Non-propagating and propagating heat diffusion classifiers 

    Yang, Haixuan (12th International Conference on Neural Information Processing, 2005)
    Abstract - By imitating the way that heat flows in a medium with a geometric structure, we propose two novel classification algorithms, Non-propagating Heat Diffusion Classifier (NHDC) and Propagating Heat Diffusion ...
  • Non-principal surface waves in deformed incompressible materials 

    Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2005)
    The Stroh formalism is applied to the analysis of infinitesimal surface wave propagation in a statically, finitely and homogeneously deformed isotropic half-space. The free surface is assumed to coincide with one of the ...
  • Nonlinear correction to the Euler buckling formula for compressed cylinders with guided-guided end conditions 

    Destrade, Michel (Springer, 2011-02)
    Euler's celebrated buckling formula gives the critical load N for the buckling of a slender cylindrical column with radius B and length L as N/([pi]^3 B^2 )=(E/4)(B/L)^2, where E is Young's modulus. Its derivation relies ...
  • Nonlinear Euler buckling 

    Goriely, Alain; Vandiver, Rebecca; Destrade, Michel (Royal Society Publishing, 2008-11)
    The buckling of hyperelastic incompressible cylindrical tubes of arbitrary length and thickness under compressive axial load is considered within the framework of nonlinear elasticity. Analytical and numerical methods for ...
  • Nonlinear transverse waves in deformed dispersive solids 

    Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2008)

    Destrade, Michel; Saccomandi, Giuseppe (World Scientific, 2008)
    We study shear waves propagating in a special viscoelastic model proposed first by Fosdick and Yu in 1996. We deduce an asymptotic approximation which reduces the full balance equations to a system of evolution equations ...
  • On a question of Serre 

    Rahm, Alexander D. (2012)
    Consider an imaginary quadratic number field Q(root -m), with m a square-free positive integer, and its ring of integers {O} . The Bianchi groups are the groups SL2{O}. Further consider the Borel-Serre compactification [7] ...
