  • 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)

  • 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 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 ...
