Introduction: photography and twentieth-century German history
Journal Article
Umbach, M., & Harvey, E. Introduction: photography and twentieth-century German history. Central European History, 48(3), doi:10.1017/S000893891500076X

In the introduction to this special issue on photography and German history, we outline current research on using both professional and amateur or snapshot photography to elucidate problems in 20th-century German history. We argue that an approach is... Read More

The cultural divide in Europe: migration, multiculturalism, and political trust
Journal Article
McLaren, L. M. (2012). The cultural divide in Europe: migration, multiculturalism, and political trust. World Politics,

One of the defining features of modern states is their incorporation of notions of political and social community based on shared language, history, and myths. However, large numbers of citizens in modern states have come to believe their national co... Read More

Melt-processed PLA/HA platelet nanoparticle composites produced using tailored dispersants
Conference Proceeding
Parsons, A. J., Walton, K., Hild, F., Ilchev, A., Gimeno-Fabra, M., Tomczynska, M. M., …Irvine, D. J. (in press). Melt-processed PLA/HA platelet nanoparticle composites produced using tailored dispersants

Hydroxyapatite (HA) nanoparticles, similar to those seen in the structure of human bone, have been produced via hydrothermal synthesisand used to produce nanocomposite materials via melt blending with poly(lactic acid)(PLA). Both of these processes a... Read More

Adaptive discontinuous Galerkin methods for eigenvalue problems arising in incompressible fluid flows
Journal Article
Cliffe, A., Hall, E., & Houston, P. Adaptive discontinuous Galerkin methods for eigenvalue problems arising in incompressible fluid flows. Manuscript submitted for publication

In this article we consider the a posteriori error estimation and adaptive mesh refinement of discontinuous Galerkin finite element approximations of the hydrodynamic stability problem associated with the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. Parti... Read More

The Motif Tracking Algorithm
Journal Article
Wilson, W., Birkin, P., & Aickelin, U. The Motif Tracking Algorithm. Manuscript submitted for publication

The search for patterns or motifs in data represents a problem area of key interest to finance and economic researchers. In this paper we introduce the Motif Tracking Algorithm, a novel immune inspired pattern identification tool that is able to iden... Read More

Lost and stolen dogs - the true sacrifice
Book
James, M. Lost and stolen dogs - the true sacrifice. University of Nottingham

A lost \ stolen dog has a devastating affect on an individual and their family this article attempts to quantify the financial cost of such an event in the UK context.

Sortal concepts and modality
Book
Mackie, P. Sortal concepts and modality. University of Nottingham

What is the modal significance of sortal concepts? It is generally accepted that sortal concepts provide persistence conditions with modal implications that are de re, and not merely de dicto. I do not think that this important assumption has receive... Read More

Rule Generalisation in Intrusion Detection Systems using Snort
Journal Article
Aickelin, U., Twycross, J., & Hesketh-Roberts, T. Rule Generalisation in Intrusion Detection Systems using Snort. International Journal of Electronic Security and Digital Forensics, 1(1), doi:10.1504/IJESDF.2007.013596

Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) provide an important layer of security for computer systems and networks, and are becoming more and more necessary as reliance on Internet services increases and systems with sensitive data are more commonly open t... Read More

Arm balancing control and experimental validation of a grid connected MMC with pulsed DC load
Journal Article
Jankovic, M., Costabeber, A., Watson, A. J., & Clare, J. C. (in press). Arm balancing control and experimental validation of a grid connected MMC with pulsed DC load. IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, doi:10.1109/TIE.2017.2711516

This paper focuses on the operation of a grid connected Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) supplying a pulsed DC load. The goal is to achieve minimum AC power fluctuation despite the high power fluctuation present on the DC side. The MMC has been sel... Read More

Axial position estimation of conical shaped motors for aerospace traction applications
Journal Article
Roggia, S., Cupertino, F., Gerada, C., & Galea, M. (in press). Axial position estimation of conical shaped motors for aerospace traction applications. IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, 53(6), doi:10.1109/TIA.2017.2717911

This paper is concerned with the use of conical induction machines. Such machines are extremely valuable when apart from the rotational torque output, an axial translation of the rotor is also required. The inherent attraction between the stator and... Read More

From the centre to the margins: German-speaking scholarship on Matthew’s Gospel as a case study for Matthean scholarship as a whole
Conference Proceeding
Deines, R. From the centre to the margins: German-speaking scholarship on Matthew’s Gospel as a case study for Matthean scholarship as a whole

Matthean scholarship was once a booming discipline and one of the centres of New Testament research; it’s probably not just biased prejudice when a German claims that the initial thrust behind the heyday of Matthean scholarship in the early second ha... Read More

Libtissue - Implementing Innate Immunity
Conference Proceeding
Twycross, J., & Aickelin, U. Libtissue - Implementing Innate Immunity

In a previous paper the authors argued the case for incorporating ideas from innate immunity into artificial immune systems (AISs) and presented an outline for a conceptualframework for such systems. A number of key general properties observed in th... Read More

On the numerical continuation of isolas of equilibria
Journal Article
Avitabile, D., Desroches, M., & Rodrigues, S. (2012). On the numerical continuation of isolas of equilibria. International Journal of Bifurcation and Chaos, 22(11), doi:10.1142/S021812741250277X

We present a numerical strategy to compute one-parameter families of isolas of equilibrium solutions in ODEs. Isolas are solution branches closed in parameter space. Numerical continuation is required to compute one single isola since it contains at... Read More

Using computational models to relate structural and functional brain connectivity
Journal Article
functional brain connectivity. European Journal of Neuroscience, 36(2), doi:10.1111/j.1460-9568.2012.08081.x

Modern imaging methods allow a non-invasive assessment of both structural and functional brain connectivity. This has lead to the identification of disease-related alterations affecting functional connectivity. The mechanism of how such alterations... Read More
