  • Finite amplitude elastic waves propagating in compressible solids 

    Destrade, Michel (2005)
    The paper studies the interaction of a longitudinal wave with transverse waves in general isotropic and unconstrained hyperelastic materials, including the possibility of dissipation. The dissipative term chosen is similar ...
  • Finite amplitude inhomogeneous waves in Mooney-Rivlin viscoelastic solids 

    Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2004-09)
    New exact solutions are exhibited within the framework of finite viscoelasticity. More precisely, the solutions correspond to finite-amplitude, transverse, linearly polarized, inhomogeneous motions superposed upon a finite ...
  • Finite-amplitude inhomogeneous plane waves in a deformed Mooney-Rivlin material 

    Destrade, Michel (Oxford University Press, 2002)
    The propagation of finite-amplitude linearly-polarized inhomogeneous transverse plane waves is considered for a Mooney-Rivlin material maintained in a state of finite static homogeneous deformation. It is shown that such ...
  • Finite-amplitude inhomogeneous plane waves of exponential type in incompressible elastic materials 

    Destrade, Michel (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1999-05)
    It is proved that elliptically polarized finite-amplitude inhomogeneous plane waves may not propagate in an elastic material subject to the constraint of incompressibility. The waves considered are harmonic in time and ...
  • Finite-amplitude Love waves in a pre-stressed neo-Hookean material 

    Destrade, Michel; Rodrigues Ferreira, Elizabete; Boulanger, Philippe (2008)
    In the context of the non-linear elasticity theory we consider a model for compressible solids called compressible neoHookean material . We show how (exact) finite-amplitude inhomogeneous plane wave solutions and ...
  • Free Bosonic Vertex Operator Algebras on Genus Two Riemann Surfaces I 

    Mason, Geoffrey; Tuite, Michael P. (2009)
    We define the partition and $n$-point functions for a vertex operator algebra on a genus two Riemann surface formed by sewing two tori together. We obtain closed formulas for the genus two partition function for the ...
  • Free Bosonic Vertex Operator Algebras on Genus Two Riemann Surfaces II 

    Mason, Geoffrey; Tuite, Michael P. (2011)
    We continue our program to define and study $n$-point correlation functions for a vertex operator algebra $V$ on a higher genus compact Riemann surface obtained by sewing surfaces of lower genus. Here we consider Riemann ...
  • Generalised Moonshine and Abelian Orbifold Constructions 

    Tuite, Michael P. (1994)
    We consider the application of Abelian orbifold constructions in Meromorphic Conformal Field Theory (MCFT) towards an understanding of various aspects of Monstrous Moonshine and Generalised Moonshine. We review some of the ...
  • Generalized Moonshine and orbifold constructions. 

    Ivanov, R.I., Tuite, M.P. (Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences (Kokyuroku), 2002)
    A brief review is given of some of our recent work on Generalised Monstrous Moonshine using abelian orbifoldings of the Moonshine Module.
  • A Generalized Vertex Operator Algebra for Heisenberg Intertwiners 

    Tuite, Michael P.; Zuevsky, Alexander (2011)
    We consider the extension of the Heisenberg vertex operator algebra by all its irreducible modules. We give an elementary construction for the intertwining vertex operators and show that they satisfy a complex parametrized ...
  • Gent models for the inflation of spherical balloons 

    Mangan, Robert; Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2015)
    We revisit an iconic deformation of non-linear elasticity: the inflation of a rubber spherical thin shell. We use the 3-parameter Mooney and Gent-Gent (GG) phenomenological models to explain the stretch-strain curve of a ...
  • Genus Two Meromorphic Conformal Field Theory 

    Tuite, Michael P. (1999)
    We construct the genus two (or two loop) partition function for meromorphic bosonic conformal field theories. We use a sewing procedure involving two genus one tori by exploiting an explicit relationship between the genus ...
  • Genus Two Partition and Correlation Functions for Fermionic Vertex Operator Superalgebras I 

    Tuite, Michael P.; Zuevsky, Alexander (2010)
    We define the partition and $n$-point correlation functions for a vertex operator superalgebra on a genus two Riemann surface formed by sewing two tori together. For the free fermion vertex operator superalgebra we obtain ...
  • The Genus Two Partition Function for Free Bosonic and Lattice Vertex Operator Algebras 

    Mason, Geoffrey; Tuite, Michael P. (2007)
    We define the $n$-point function for a vertex operator algebra on a genus two Riemann surface in two separate sewing schemes where either two tori are sewn together or a handle is sewn to one torus. We explicitly obtain ...
  • Glauberman's and Thompson's theorems for fusion systems 

    Park, Sejong (American Mathematical Society, 2009-02)
    We prove analogues of results of Glauberman and Thompson for fusion systems. As a corollary, we obtain a stronger form of Frobenius' theorem for fusion systems, applicable under the above assumptions and generalizing another ...
  • The gluing problem for some block fusion systems 

    Park, Sejong (2010)
    We answer the gluing problem of blocks of finite groups (Linckelmann (2004) [7, 4.2]) for tame blocks and the principal p-block of PSL 3 ( p ) for p odd. In particular, we show that the gluing problem for the principal ...
  • A high rate tension device for characterizing brain tissue 

    Destrade, Michel (SAGE Journals, 2012-03-08)
    The mechanical characterization of brain tissue at high loading velocities is vital for understanding and modeling traumatic brain injury. The most severe form of traumatic brain injury is diffuse axonal injury, which ...
  • Higher torsion in the Abelianization of the full Bianchi groups 

    Rahm, Alexander D. (Cambridge University Press (Cambridge Journals Online), 2013-09)
    Denote by Q(root-m), with m a square-free positive integer, an imaginary quadratic number field, and by O-m its ring of integers. The Bianchi groups are the groups SL2(O-m). In the literature, so far there have been no ...
  • The homological torsion of PSL_2 of the imaginary quadratic integers 

    Rahm, Alexander D. (2013)
    The Bianchi groups are the groups (P)SL2 over a ring of integers in an imaginary quadratic number field. We reveal a correspondence between the homological torsion of the Bianchi groups and new geometric invariants, which ...
  • Homology and K-theory of the Bianchi groups 

    Rahm, Alexander D. (2011)
    We reveal a correspondence between the homological torsion of the Bianchi groups and new geometric invariants, which are effectively computable thanks to their action on hyperbolic space. We use it to explicitly compute ...
