Separation of oil/water emulsions in continuous flow using microwave heating (2013)
Journal Article
Binner, E., Robinson, J. P., Kingman, S., Lester, E., Azzopardi, B. J., Dimitrakis, G., & Briggs, J. (2013). Separation of oil/water emulsions in continuous flow using microwave heating. Energy and Fuels, 27(6), doi:10.1021/ef400634n

This work studies a continuous flow microwave system to enhance gravity settling of water-in-oil emulsions. Settling times were found to be dependent upon the applied power, flowrate and energy input. Power and energy input are linked to liquid flowr...

Insights into the structure and assembly of the Bacillus subtilis clamp-loader complex and its interaction with the replicative helicase. (2013)
Journal Article
Afonso, J. P., Chintakayala, K., Suwannachart, C., Sedelnikova, S., Giles, K., Hoyes, J. B., …Oldham, N. J. (2013). Insights into the structure and assembly of the Bacillus subtilis clamp-loader complex and its interaction with the replicative helicase. Nucleic Acids Research, 41(9), doi:10.1093/nar/gkt173

The clamp-loader complex plays a crucial role in DNA replication by loading the β-clamp onto primed DNA to be used by the replicative polymerase. Relatively little is known about the stoichiometry, structure and assembly pathway of this complex, an...

Grey sets and greyness (2012)
Journal Article
Yang, Y., & John, R. (2012). Grey sets and greyness. Information Sciences, 185(1), doi:10.1016/j.ins.2011.09.029

This paper discusses the application of grey numbers for uncertainty representation. It highlights the difference between grey sets and interval-valued fuzzy sets, and investigates the degree of greyness for grey sets. It facilitates the representati... Read More about Grey sets and greyness.

Interval type-2 fuzzy modelling and stochastic search for real-world inventory management (2012)
Journal Article
Miller, S., Gongora, M., Garibaldi, J., & John, R. (2012). Interval type-2 fuzzy modelling and stochastic search for real-world inventory management. Soft Computing, 16(8), doi:10.1007/s00500-012-0848-y

Real-world systems present a variety of challenges to the modeller, not least of which is the problem of uncertainty inherent in their operation. In this research, an interval type-2 fuzzy model is applied to a real-world problem, the goal being to d...

Intuitionistic fuzzy similarity measures and their role in classification
Journal Article
Baccour, L., Alimi, A., & John, R. Intuitionistic fuzzy similarity measures and their role in classification. Journal of Intelligent Systems, 25(2), doi:10.1515/jisys-2015-0086

We present some similarity and distance measures between intuitionistic fuzzy sets (IFSs). Thus, we propose two semi-metric distance measures between IFSs. The measures are applied to classification of shapes and handwritten Arabic sentences describe... Read More about Intuitionistic fuzzy similarity measures and their role in classification.
