  • Uniform transmural strain in pre-stressed arteries occurs at physiological pressure 

    Destrade, Michel; Liu, Yi; Murphy, Jeremiah G.; Kassab, Ghassan S. (Elsevier, 2012-06-21)
    Residual deformation (strain) exists in arterial vessels, and has been previously proposed to induce homogeneous transmural strain distribution. In this work, we present analytical formulations that predict the existence ...
  • Vertex Operators and Modular Forms 

    Mason, Geoffrey; Tuite, Michael P. (2009)
    The leitmotif of these Notes is the idea of a vertex operator algebra (VOA) and the relationship between VOAs and elliptic functions and modular forms. This is to some extent analogous to the relationship between a finite ...
  • The Virasoro Algebra and Some Exceptional Lie and Finite Groups 

    Tuite, Michael P. (2006)
    We describe a number of relationships between properties of the vacuum Verma module of a Virasoro algebra and the automorphism group of certain vertex operator algebras. These groups include the Deligne exceptional series ...
  • Virasoro Correlation Functions for Vertex Operator Algebras 

    Hurley, Donny; Tuite, Michael P. (2011)
    We consider all genus zero and genus one correlation functions for the Virasoro vacuum descendants of a vertex operator algebra. These are described in terms of explicit generating functions that can be combinatorially ...
  • A wave near the edge of a circular disk 

    Destrade, Michel (2008)
    It is shown that in the Love-Kirchhoff plate theory, an edge wave can travel in a circular thin disk made of an isotropic elastic material. This disk edge wave turns out to be faster than the classic flexural acoustic wave ...
  • 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]
  • 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 ...
