  • Generalised capacity curves for stability and plasticity: application and limitations 

    Doerich-Stavridis, Cornelia; Rotter, J. Michael (Elsevier, 2011-09)
    In recent decades, the resistance of a structure has been thought of as well defined by the outcome of a geometrically and materially nonlinear analysis with explicitly modelled imperfections (GMNIA). But when this is the ...
  • A generalised Kummer-type transformation for the pFp(x) hypergeometric function 

    Miller, A. R.; Paris, Richard B. (University of Toronto Press, 2012)
    In a recent paper, Miller derived a Kummer-type transformation for the generalised hypergeometric function pFp(x) when pairs of parameters differ by unity, by means of a reduction formula for a certain Kampé de Fériet ...
  • Generalization of two theorems due to Ramanujan 

    Kim, Yong S.; Rathie, Arjun K.; Paris, Richard B. (Taylor & Francis, 2013)
    The aim in this paper is to provide generalizations of two interesting entries in Ramanujan's notebooks that relate sums involving the derivatives of a function (t) evaluated at 0 and 1. The generalizations obtained are ...
  • Generalizations of two infinite product formulas 

    Chen, Chao-Ping; Paris, Richard B. (Taylor & Francis, 2014)
    Two interesting infinite product formulas were presented by Choi, Lee and Srivastava [A generalization of Wilf's formula. Kodai Math J. 2003;26:44–48], who generalized an infinite product formula posed by Wilf as a problem ...
  • A genetic algorithm based economic dispatch (GAED) with environmental constraint optimisation 

    King, David J.; Ozveren, Cuneyt Suheyl; Warsono (VDE, 2011)
    The role of renewable energy in power systems is becoming more significant due to the increasing cost of fossil fuels and climate change concerns. However, the inclusion of Renewable Energy Generators (REG), such as wind ...
  • Genetic, ophthalmic, morphometric and histopathological analysis of the Retinopathy Globe Enlarged (rge) chicken

    Purpose: To identify the locus responsible for rge (retinopathy globe enlarged) in chickens and further characterise the rge phenotype. Methods: A colony of chickens carrying the rge mutation was rederived from a single ...

C.; Knight, Christopher G.; Malone, Jacob G.; Robinson, Zena; Spiers, Andrew J.; Harris, Simon; Challis, Gregory L.; Yaxley, Alice M; Harris, David; Seeger, Kathy; Murphy, Lee; Rutter, Simon; Squares, Rob; Quail, Michael A.; Saunders, Elizabeth; Mavromatis, Konstantinos; Brettin, Thomas S.; Bentley, Stephen D.; Hothersall, Joanne; Stephens, Elton; Thomas, Christopher M.; Parkhill, Julian; Levy, Stuart B.; Rainey, Paul B.; Thomson, Nicholas R. (BioMed Central, 2009-05)
    Background: Pseudomonas fluorescens are common soil bacteria that can improve plant health through nutrient cycling, pathogen antagonism and induction of plant defenses. The genome sequences of strains SBW25 and Pf0-1 were ...

    Roadside verges in Britain support 238,000 hectares of vegetated land and approximately 10 hectares of vegetated central reserves. These areas have the potential to be engineered in such a way that they deliver a range of ...
  • Gesture based IoT light control for smart clothing 

    Mohammed, Assad; Seeam, Amar; Bellekens, Xavier; Nieradzinska, Kamila (IEEE Xplore, 2016-11-10)
    In this paper, a smart wireless wristband is proposed. The potential of innovative gesture based interactivity with connected lighting solutions is reviewed. The solution is intended to offer numerous benefits, in terms ...
  • Gestures and multimodal input 

    Keates, Simeon; Robinson, Peter (Taylor & Francis, 1999)
    For users with motion impairments, the standard keyboard and mouse arrangement for computer access often presents problems. Other approaches have to be adopted to overcome this. In this paper, we will describe the development ...
  • Getting Wrinkly Spreaders to demonstrate evolution in schools 

    Spiers, Andrew J. (Elsevier, 2014-06)
    Understanding evolution is crucial to modern biology,but most teachers would assume that practical demonstrations of evolution in school laboratories are unfeasible. However, perhaps they have not heard of ‘evolution in a ...
