  • Towards multicaloric effect with ferroelectrics 

    Liu, Yang; Zhang, GuangZu; Li, Qi; Bellaiche, Laurent; Scott, James Floyd; Dkhil, Brahim; Wang, Qing (2016-12-02) - Journal article
    Utilizing thermal changes in solid state materials strategically offers caloric-based alternatives to replace current vapor-compression technology. To make full use of multiple forms of the entropy and achieve higher ...
  • Microreact: visualizing and sharing data for genomic epidemiology and phylogeography 

    Argimón, Silvia; Abudahab, Khalil; Goater, Richard J. E.; Fedosejev, Artemij; Bhai, Jyothish; Glasner, Corinna; Feil, Edward J.; Holden, Matthew T. G.; Yeats, Corin A.; Grundmann, Hajo; Spratt, Brian G.; Aanensen, David M. (2016-11-30) - Journal article
    Visualization is frequently used to aid our interpretation of complex datasets. Within microbial genomics, visualizing the relationships between multiple genomes as a tree provides a framework onto which associated data ...
  • A logical approach for behavioural composition of scenario-based models 

    Bowles, Juliana Kuster Filipe; Bordbar, Behzad; Alwanain, Mohammed (Springer International Publishing, 2015) - Conference item
    As modern systems become more complex, design approaches model different aspects of the system separately. When considering (intra and inter) system interactions, it is usual to model individual scenarios using UML’s ...
  • The challenges of analyzing behavioral response study data : an overview of the MOCHA (Multi-study OCean acoustics Human effects Analysis) project 

    Harris, Catriona M; Thomas, Len; Sadykova, Dinara; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Southall, Brandon L.; Read, Andrew J.; Miller, Patrick (Springer Science and Business Media, 2016) - Conference item
    This paper describes the MOCHA project which aims to develop novel approaches for the analysis of data collected during Behavioral Response Studies (BRSs). BRSs are experiments aimed at directly quantifying the effects of ...
  • Isothiourea-catalysed acylative kinetic resolution of aryl-alkenyl (sp2 vs. sp2) substituted secondary alcohols 

    Musolino, Stefania F.; Ojo, O. Stephen; Westwood, Nicholas J.; Taylor, James E.; Smith, Andrew D. (2016-11-30) - Journal article
    The non-enzymatic acylative kinetic resolution of challenging aryl-alkenyl (sp2 vs. sp2) substituted secondary alcohols is described, with effective enantiodiscrimination achieved using the isothiourea organocatalyst ...
