    • A Weibull-count approach for handling under- and overdispersed longitudinal/clustered data structures 

      Luyts, Martial; Molenberghs, Geert; Verbeke, Geert; Matthijs, Koen; Ribeiro Jr, Eduardo E.; Demétrio, Clarice G. B.; Hinde, John (SAGE Publications, 2018-07-30)
      A Weibull-model-based approach is examined to handle under- and overdispersed discrete data in a hierarchical framework. This methodology was first introduced by Nakagawa and Osaki (1975, IEEE Transactions on Reliability, ...
    • Weierstrass's criterion and compact solitary waves 

      Destrade, Michel (American Physical Society, 2007-04-17)
      Weierstrass's theory is a standard qualitative tool for single degree of freedom equations, used in classical mechanics and in many textbooks. In this Brief Report we show how a simple generalization of this tool makes it ...
    • The weighted fusion category algebra and the $q$-Schur algebra for $\rm GL_2(q)$ 

      Park, Sejong (ScienceDirect, 2008-01)
      [no abstract available]
    • Wireless communicative stent for follow-up of abdominal aortic aneurysm, 

      Destrade, Michel (IEEE, 2006)
      An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a dilatation of the aorta at the abdominal level, which rupture is a life threatening complication. Recent treatment of AAA consists in endovascular treatment with covered stent grafts. ...
    • Wrinkles and creases in the bending, unbending and eversion of soft sectors 

      Sigaeva, Taisiya; Mangan, Robert; Vergori, Luigi; Destrade, Michel; Sudak, Les (The Royal Society, 2018-03-23)
      We study what is clearly one of the most common modes of deformation found in nature, science and engineering, namely the large elastic bending of curved structures, as well as its inverse, unbending, which can be brought ...
    • Wrinkles in soft dielectric plates 

      Su, Yipin; Conroy Broderick, Hannah; Chen, Weiqiu; Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2018-07-04)
      We show that a smooth giant voltage actuation of soft dielectric plates is not easily obtained in practice. In principle one can exploit, through pre-deformation, the snap-through behavior of their loading curve to deliver ...
    • Wrinkles in the opening angle method 

      Destrade, Michel; Lusetti, Irene; Mangan, Robert; Sigaeva, Taisiya (Elsevier, 2017-06-10)
      We investigate the stability of the deformation modeled by the opening angle method, often used to give a measure of residual stresses in arteries and other biological soft tubular structures. Specifically, we study the ...
    • Zhu reduction for Jacobi n-point functions and applications 

      Tuite, Michael P.; Krauel, Matthew; Bringmann, Kathrin (2017-06-23)
      We establish precise Zhu reduction formulas for Jacobi n-point functions which show the absence of any possible poles arising in these formulas. We then exploit this to produce results concerning the structure of strongly ...
