Initial stress symmetry and its applications in elasticity
(The Royal Society, 20151028)An initial stress within a solid can arise to support external loads or from processes such as thermal expansion in inert matter or growth and remodelling in living materials. For this reason, it is useful to develop a ... 
Some design considerations for polymerfree drugeluting stents: a mathematical approach
(Elsevier (Science Direct), 2015)In this paper we provide the first model of drug elution from polymerfree arterial drugeluting stents. The generalised model is capable of predicting the drug release from a number of polymerfree systems including those ... 
Generalized Moonshine and orbifold constructions.
(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 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 ... 
Torsion instability of soft solid cylinders
(Oxford Open Journals, 20131210)The application of pure torsion to a long and thin cylindrical rod is known to provoke a twisting instability, evolving from an initial kink to a knot. In the torsional parallelplate rheometry of stubby cylinders, the ... 
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 ... 
Incremental magnetoelastic deformations, with application to surface instability
(Springer, 200801)In this paper the equations governing the deformations of infinitesimal (incremental) disturbances superimposed on finite static deformation fields involving magnetic and elastic interactions are presented. The coupling ... 
On stressdependent elastic moduli and wave speeds
(Oxford Journals, 20120330)On the basis of the general nonlinear theory of a hyperelastic material with initial stress, initially without consideration of the origin of the initial stress, we determine explicit expressions for the stressdependent ... 
Some results on finite amplitude elastic waves propagating in rotating media
(Springer, 200412)Two questions related to elastic motions are raised and addressed. First: in which theoretical framework can the equations of motion be written for an elastic halfspace put into uniform rotation? It is seen that nonlinear ... 
The explicit secular equation for surface acoustic waves in monoclinic elastic crystals
(Acoustical Society of America, 20010125)The secular equation for surface acoustic waves propagating on a monoclinic elastic halfspace is derived in a direct manner, using the method of first integrals. Although the motion is at first assumed to correspond to ... 
Surface waves in orthotropic incompressible materials
(Acoustical Society of America, 20010417)The secular equation for surface acoustic waves propagating on an orthotropic incompressible halfspace is derived in a direct manner, using the method of first integrals. 
Circularlypolarized plane waves in a deformed Hadamard material
(Elsevier, 20011031)Smallamplitude 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 ... 
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. ... 
The incompressible limit in linear anisotropic elasticity, with applications to surface waves and elastostatics
(Elsevier, 2002)[no abstract available] 
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 ... 
EndoCOM : Conception d un banc in vitro de simulation des anévrismes de l aorte abdominale
(2009)(FR) Le traitement des anévrismes de l'aorte abdominale par voie endovasculaire est aujourd'hui prédominant à plus de 65 % mais comporte encore des risques. Le suivi postopératoire devient alors crucial. Le projet de ... 
Higher torsion in the Abelianization of the full Bianchi groups
(Cambridge University Press (Cambridge Journals Online), 201309)Denote by Q(rootm), with m a squarefree positive integer, an imaginary quadratic number field, and by Om its ring of integers. The Bianchi groups are the groups SL2(Om). In the literature, so far there have been no ... 
Complexifiable characteristic classes
(Springer, 201401)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. 
Accessing the cohomology of discrete groups above their virtual cohomological dimension
(2014)We introduce a method to explicitly determine the FarrellTate cohomology of discrete groups. We apply this method to the Coxeter triangle and tetrahedral groups as well as to the Bianchi groups, i.e. PSL_2 over the ring ...
