Conference Proceeding
Kulsangcharoen, P., Klumpner, C., Zhou, X., Peng, C., Chen, G. Z., Rashed, M., & Asher, G. (in press). Efficiency evaluation of a novel supercapattery stack with a power electronic interface for energy storage systems

The increase of renewable energy generation seen as the only way to ensure clean and sustainable development, is under scrutiny due to its intermittent nature and an insufficient development of com-plementary technologies such as electrical energy st...

Low parasitic inductance multi-chip SiC devices packaging technology
Conference Proceeding
Li, J., Mouawad, B., Castellazzi, A., Friedrichs, P., & Johnson, C. M. (in press). Low parasitic inductance multi-chip SiC devices packaging technology

This paper presents a novel packaging structure which employs stacked substrate and flexible printed circuit board (PCB) to obtain very low parasitic inductance and hence feature high switching speed SiC power devices.

Experimental investigation of the use of sharp edges for the production of positive ions in field-ionization mass spectrometry
Journal Article
Blenkinsop, P., Job, B., Brailsford, D. F., Cross, C., & Robertson, A. (1968). Experimental investigation of the use of sharp edges for the production of positive ions in field-ionization mass spectrometry. International journal of mass spectrometry and ion processes, 1(6), doi:10.1016/0020-7381(68)85019-3

Various commercial razor blades have been tested for field ionization performance and compared with edges prepared electrochemically from platinum and tungsten foils. The results are correlated with data obtained from electron micrographs of the vari...

The toponymy of communal activity: Anglo-Saxon assembly sites and their functions
Book Chapter
Baker, J. The toponymy of communal activity: Anglo-Saxon assembly sites and their functions. In J. Tort I Donada (Ed.), Els noms en la vida quotidiana. Actes del XXIV Congrés Internacional d’ICOS sobre Ciències OnomàstiquesICOS

The paper builds on earlier discussion of the multiple functions of medieval judicial assembly sites, providing a comprehensive evaluation of relevant English hundred-names, and making reference to associated microtoponymy. While religious, military,... Read More about The toponymy of communal activity: Anglo-Saxon assembly sites and their functions.

Territories of literary history: the shifting boundaries of Francophone literature in Canada
Book Chapter
Chapman, R. (2013). Territories of literary history: the shifting boundaries of Francophone literature in Canada. In N. Cheadle, J. Boissonneault, & A. Reguigui (Eds.), Language and territory: literary spaces/Langues et territoire: espaces littérairesLaurentian University, Ontario

The writing of literary history opens up a range of questions about territory and boundaries. While recognising the energising role of Quebec nationalism in the emergence and affirmation of Québécois literature in the second half of the Twentieth Cen...

Investigating the detection of adverse drug events in a UK general practice electronic health-care database
Conference Proceeding
Reps, J., Feyereisl, J., Garibaldi, J. M., Aickelin, U., Gibson, J. E., & Hubbard, R. B. Investigating the detection of adverse drug events in a UK general practice electronic health-care database

Data-mining techniques have frequently been developed for Spontaneous reporting databases. These techniques aim to find adverse drug events accurately and efficiently. Spontaneous reporting databases are prone to missing information,under reporting...

Agent based simulation as a novel decision support tool for retail managers
Conference Proceeding
Siebers, P., Aickelin, U., Celia, H., & Clegg, C. Agent based simulation as a novel decision support tool for retail managers

Intelligent agents offer a new and exciting way of understanding the world of work. We apply agent-based simulation to investigate a set of problems in a retail context. Specifically, we are working to understand the relationship between human reso... Read More about Agent based simulation as a novel decision support tool for retail managers.

Economic status and acknowledgement of earned entitlement
Journal Article
Barr, A., Burns, J., Miller, L., & Shaw, I. Economic status and acknowledgement of earned entitlement. Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, doi:10.1016/j.jebo.2015.02.012

We present a series of experiments that investigates whether tendencies to acknowledge entitlement owing to effort and productivity are associated with within society economic status. Each participant played a four-person dictator game under one of t... Read More about Economic status and acknowledgement of earned entitlement.

Pulsating fronts in periodically modulated neural field models
Journal Article
Coombes, S., & Laing, C. Pulsating fronts in periodically modulated neural field models. Physical Review E,

We consider a coarse grained neural field model for synaptic activity in spatially extended cortical tissue that possesses an underlying periodicity in its microstructure. The model is written as an integro-differential equation with periodic modula... Read More about Pulsating fronts in periodically modulated neural field models.

An Agent-based Classification Model
Conference Proceeding
Gu, F., Aickelin, U., & Greensmith, J. An Agent-based Classification Model

The major function of this model is to access the UCI Wisconsin Breast Cancer data-set[1] and classify the data items into two categories, which are normal and anomalous. This kind of classification can be referred as anomaly detection, which discri... Read More about An Agent-based Classification Model.

Teach the children well: young adult literature and queer content
Book
Billingham, S. E. Teach the children well: young adult literature and queer content. University of Nottingham

This paper forms part of a larger project interested equally in literary analysis of young adult texts with LGBTQ content, the institutional contexts within which such texts are produced, and what happens to the texts once they are published.

Exact solutions for cluster-growth kinetics with evolving size and shape profiles
Journal Article
Wattis, J. A. Exact solutions for cluster-growth kinetics with evolving size and shape profiles. Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and General, 39,

In this paper we construct a model for the simultaneous compaction by which clusters are restructured, and growth of clusters by pairwise coagulation. The model has the form of a multicomponent aggregation problem in which the components are clu... Read More about Exact solutions for cluster-growth kinetics with evolving size and shape profiles.

The arpeggigon: declarative programming of a full-fledged musical application
Book
Nilsson, H., & Chupin, G. The arpeggigon: declarative programming of a full-fledged musical application. University of Nottingham

There are many systems and languages for music that essentially are declarative, often following the synchronous dataflow paradigm. As these tools, however, are mainly aimed at artists, their application focus tends to be narrow and their usefulness...

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.
