Since the proposition of the social integration theory by Émile Durkheim, macro-sociological changes have been speculated to affect suicide rates. This study investigates the effect of the First World War on Irish suicide ...
The method of Regional Climate Modelling (RCM) was employed to assess the impacts of a warming climate on the mid-21st-century climate of Ireland. The RCM simulations were run at high spatial resolution, up to 4 km, thus ...
Mycobacterium bovis infects the wildlife species badgers Meles meles who are linked with the spread of the associated disease tuberculosis (TB) in cattle. Control of livestock infections depends in part on the spatial and ...
It is known that, for any simply connected proper subdomain Ω of the complex plane and any point ζ in Ω, there are holomorphic functions on Ω that possess “universal” Taylor series expansions about ζ; that is, partial sums ...
Irish elections use a voting system called proportion representation by means of a single transferable vote(PR-STV). Under this system, voters express their vote by ranking some (or all) of the candidates in order of ...
The development of computer models for numerical simulation of the atmosphere
and oceans is one of the great scientific triumphs of the past fifty years. These
models have added enormously to our understanding of the ...
Let Ω be a simply connected proper subdomain of the complex plane and z0 be a point in Ω. It is known that there are holomorphic functions f on Ω for which the partial sums (Sn(f,z0)) of the Taylor series about z0 have ...
We consider the Goursat problem in the plane for partial differential operators whose principal part is the pth power of the standard Laplace operator. The data is posed on a union of 2p distinct lines through the origin. ...
A grade of membership (GoM) model is an individual level mixture model which allows individuals have partial membership of the groups that characterize a population. A GoM model for rank data is developed to model the ...

Suppose that a harmonic function h on a finite cylinder vanishes on the curved part of the boundary. This paper answers a question of Khavinson by showing that h then has a harmonic continuation to the infinite strip bounded ...
There is a paucity of dynamically downscaled climate model output at a high resolution over Ireland, of temperature projections for the mid-21st century. This study aims to address this shortcoming. A preliminary investigation ...
Let F be a field of characteristic zero and let ft,n be the stabilization homomorphism Hn(SLt(F), Z) → Hn(SLt+1(F), Z). We prove the following results: For all n, ft,n is an isomorphism if t ≥ n + 1 and is surjective for ...
In this note, we look at homotopes of Jordan triple structures and show that, following a renorming, an isotope of a JB*-triple is also a JB*-triple. We also provide a proof of the Russo—Dye theorem for JBW*-triples.
We investigate the ideal and incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations in three space dimensions for the development of potentially singular structures. The methodology consists in implementing the fourfold ...
Let H∞(B) be the Banach algebra of bounded holomorphic functions on the open unit ball B of a Banach space. We show that the identity operator is an isolated point in the space of composition operators on H∞(B). This answers ...
We consider the Laplace transform filtering integration scheme applied to the shallow water equations, and demonstrate how it can be formulated as a finite difference scheme in the time domain. In addition, we investigate ...
The spectrum of atmospheric motions is vast, encompassing phenomena having periods ranging
from seconds to millennia. The motions of interest to the forecaster typically have time-scales of a day or longer, but the ...
The question of which quadratic forms become isotropic when extended to the function field of a given form is studied. A formula for the minimum dimension of the minimal isotropic forms associated to such extensions is ...
Latent space models (LSM) for network data were introduced by Holf et al. (2002) under the basic assumption that each node of the network has an unknown position in a D-dimensional Euclidean latent space: generally the ...
