A computational investigation of the finitetime blowup of the 3D incompressible Euler equations based on the Voigt regularization
(American Physical Society, 201512)We report the results of a computational investigation of two recently proved blowup criteria for the 3D incompressible Euler equations. These criteria are based on an inviscid regularization of the Euler equations known ... 
A computational study of stimulus driven epileptic seizure abatement
(Public Library of Science, 20141222)Active brain stimulation to abate epileptic seizures has shown mixed success. In spikewave (SW) seizures, where the seizure and background state were proposed to coexist, singlepulse stimulations have been suggested to ... 
A Computer Simulation Study of Anatomy Induced Drift of Spiral Waves in the Human Atrium
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2014)The interaction of spiral waves of excitation with atrial anatomy remains unclear. This simulation study isolates the role of atrial anatomical structures on spiral wave spontaneous drift in the human atrium. We implemented ... 
Computing and control for the water industry (CCWI2015)
(Elsevier, 20150101)With rapid population growth, water withdrawals have tripled over the last 50 years and are predicted to increase by 50% by 2025 and may lead to an estimated 40% supply shortage. Water resources protection and improvements ... 
Computing with confidence: a Bayesian approach
(2006)Bayes’ rule is introduced as a coherent strategy for multiple recomputations of classifier system output, and thus as a basis for assessing the uncertainty associated with a particular system results  i.e. a basis for ... 
Concise stability conditions for systems with static nonlinear feedback expressed by a quadratic program
(Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2008)The stability of the feedback connection of a strictly proper linear timeinvariant stable system with a static nonlinearity expressed by a convex quadratic program (QP) is considered. From the KarushKuhnTucker conditions ... 
Conditions for propagation and block of excitation in an asymptotic model of atrial tissue.
(2006)Detailed ionic models of cardiac cells are difficult for numerical simulations because they consist of a large number of equations and contain small parameters. The presence of small parameters, however, may be used for ... 
Conditions for sinktosource transitions and runaway feedbacks from the land carbon cycle
(Cambridge University Press, 200602)The first GCM climatecarbon cycle simulation indicated that the land biosphere could provide a significant acceleration of 21st century climate change (Cox et al. 2000). In this numerical experiment the carbon storage was ... 
Cone exchange transformations and boundedness of orbits
(Cambridge University Press, 2010)We introduce a class of twodimensional piecewise isometries on the plane that we refer to as cone exchange transformations (CETs). These are generalizations of interval exchange transformations (IETs) to 2D unbounded ... 
Confidence in Classification: A Bayesian Approach
(Springer Verlag, 2006)Bayesian classification is currently of considerable interest. It provides a strategy for eliminating the uncertainty associated with a particular choice of classifiermodel parameters, and is the optimal decisiontheoretic ... 
Confident interpretation of Bayesian decision tree ensembles for clinical applications
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2007)Bayesian averaging (BA) over ensembles of decision models allows evaluation of the uncertainty of decisions that is of crucial importance for safetycritical applications such as medical diagnostics. The interpretability ... 
Configuring and enhancing measurement systems for damage identification
(Elsevier, 2009)Engineers often decide to measure structures upon signs of damage to determine its extent and its location. Measurement locations, sensor types and numbers of sensors are selected based on judgment and experience. Rational ... 
Confronting standard models of protoplanetary disks with new midinfrared sizes from the Keck Interferometer
(American Astronomical Society, 2016)We present near and mid–infrared interferometric observations made with the Keck Interferometer Nuller and near–contemporaneous spectro–photometry from the IRTF of 11 well known young stellar objects, several observed ... 
A conjecture of Stanley on alternating permutations
(Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2007)We give two simple proofs of a conjecture of Richard Stanley concerning the equidistribution of derangements and alternating permutations with the maximal number of fixed points. 
The Conjugate RefractiveReflective Homogeniser in a 500X Cassegrain Concentrator: Design and Limits
(Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2016)In this study we present the Conjugate Refractive Reflective Homogeniser (CRRH) to be used in a 500X Cassegrain photovoltaic concentrator. The CRRH is a dielectric crossed vtrough lined with a reflective film whilst ... 
Conoscopic observation of director reorientation during Poiseuille flow of a nematic liquid crystal
(American Institute of Physics, 2009)Director reorientation under pressure driven (Poiseuille) flow is observed conoscopically for the liquid crystal 5CB aligned at an azimuthal angle of 45° to the direction of flow. A polyimide surface treatment (AL 1254) ... 
The conservation value of abandoned pits and quarries in Cornwall: a report of the conference held at County Hall, Truro on 22nd March 1999
(The Historic Environment Service, Cornwall County Council, 2002) 
Considering the mutual dependence of pulse duration and intensity in models for generating residential water demand
(American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 20151101)The aim of this paper is to analyze the effects of considering the mutual dependence of the pulse duration and intensity inside water demand generation models that operate with a high temporal resolution, i.e., 1 s time ... 
Consistency of certain constitutive relations with quantum electromagnetism
(American Physical Society, 2011)Recent work by Philbin [ New J. Phys. 12 123008 (2010)] has provided a Lagrangian theory that establishes a general method for the canonical quantization of the electromagnetic field in any dispersive, lossy, linear ...
