  • Hennessy, Aoife; Schellekens, Michel P. (Elsevier, 2014)
    Spielman’s smoothed complexity - a hybrid between worst and average case complexity measures - relies on perturbations of input instances to determine where average-case behavior turns to worst-case. This approach simplifies ...

  • Horgan, Donagh; Murphy, Colin C. (IEEE, 2013-12)
    A simple and novel asymptotic bound for the maximum error resulting from the use of the central limit theorem to approximate the distribution of chi square and noncentral chi square random variables is derived. The bound ...
  • Brint, Elizabeth K.; O'Callaghan, Grace; Houston, Aileen M. (Springer, 2013-11-01)
    Fas, also known as CD95 or APO-1, is a member of the tumor necrosis factor/nerve growth factor superfamily. Although best characterized in terms of its apoptotic function, recent studies have identified several other ...
