Mandoline: robust cutcell generation for arbitrary triangle meshes
(ACM, 201911)Although geometry arising "in the wild" most often comes in the form of a surface representation, a plethora of geometrical and physical applications require the construction of volumetric embeddings either of the geometry ... 
Manipulating the sleeping beauty mutase operon for the production of 1propanol in engineered Escherichia coli
(BioMed Central, 20130928)Background: While most resources in biofuels were directed towards implementing bioethanol programs, 1propanol has recently received attention as a promising alternative biofuel. Nevertheless, no microorganism has been ... 
Manipulation and separation of oil droplets by using asymmetric nanoorifice induced DC dielectrophoretic method
(Elsevier, 20180215)Emulsion droplets are versatile tools in chemical and biological fields and the separation of emulsion droplets is one of the most crucial steps in research and industry. This work developed a nanoorifice based DC ... 
Mapping the state of play on the global food landscape
(Canadian Food Studies, 20150908)Introduction to a special issue of Canadian Food Studies: The articles in this special issue are the result of an innovative workshop held in Waterloo, Ontario September 25–26, 2014, that sought to expand a conversation ... 
Marine redox conditions during deposition of Late Ordovician and Early Silurian organicrich mudrocks in the Siljan ring district, central Sweden
(Elsevier, 20170510)The Late Ordovician Period witnessed the second largest mass extinction in the Phanerozoic Eon and the Hirnantian glaciation. To infer ocean redox conditions across the OrdovicianSilurian transition, we measured the U (as ... 
Mass transfer in fibrous media with varying anisotropy for flow battery electrodes: Direct numerical simulations with 3D Xray computed tomography
(Elsevier, 20190316)A numerical method for calculating the mass transfer coefficient in fibrous media is presented. First, pressure driven flow was modelled using the Lattice Boltzmann Method. The advectiondiffusion equation was solved for ... 
Matching fluid simulation elements to surface geometry and topology
(Association for Computing Machinery, 201007)We introduce an Eulerian liquid simulation framework based on the Voronoi diagram of a potentially unorganized collection of pressure samples. Constructing the simulation mesh in this way allows us to place samples anywhere ... 
Maternal fish oil supplementation during lactation is associated with reduced height at 13 years of age and higher blood pressure in boys only
(Cambridge University Press, 20161228)Dietary longchain n3 PUFA (n3 LCPUFA) in infancy may have longterm effects on lifestyle disease risk. The present followup study investigated whether maternal fish oil (FO) supplementation during lactation affected ... 
Mathbased spark ignition engine modelling including emission prediction for control applications
(Inderscience, 20150422)A complete spark ignition (SI) engine model is a multidomain model including fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, combustion, electrical, and mechanical submodels. The complexity of these models depends on the type of analysis ... 
Mathematical modeling of thermomechanical behavior of strip during twin roll casting of an AZ31 magnesium alloy
(Elsevier, 20130601)The effect of setback distance on the thermomechanical behavior of the strip during twin roll casting (TRC) of an AZ31 magnesium alloy was modeled using finite element method (FEM). Model validation was done by comparing ... 
MATRIX ALGEBRAS WITH A CERTAIN COMPRESSION PROPERTY I
(Elsevier, 20210715)An algebra A of n × n complex matrices is said to be projection compressible if P AP is an algebra for all orthogonal projections P ∈ Mn(C). Analogously, A is said to be idempotent compressible if EAE is an algebra for all ... 
Matrix compatible solid phase microextraction coating, a greener approach to sample preparation in vegetable matrices
(Elsevier, 20170901)This work proposes the novel PDMS/DVB/PDMS fiber as a greener strategy for analysis by direct immersion solid phase microextraction (SPME) in vegetables. SPME is an established sample preparation approach that has not yet ... 
Matrix representations of the inverse problem in the graph model for conflict resolution
(Elsevier, 20181001)Given the final individual stability for each decision maker or an equilibrium of interest, a matrixbased method for an inverse analysis is developed in order to calculate all of the possible preferences for each decision ... 
Maximal cell density predictions for compressible polymer foams
(Elsevier, 20121205)Thermodynamic upper bounds for polymer foam cell densities are predicted using compressible selfconsistent field theory. It is found that the incompressible limit always gives the highest, and therefore ultimate, upper ... 
Maximal voluntary isometric contraction tests for normalizing electromyographic data from different regions of supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscles: Identifying reliable combinations
(Elsevier, 20180801)This study aimed to identify optimal sets of maximal voluntary isometric contractions (MVICs) for normalizing EMG data from anterior and posterior regions of the supraspinatus, and superior, middle and inferior regions of ... 
Maximum likelihood estimation of firstpassage structural credit risk models correcting for the survivorship bias
(Elsevier, 201903)The survivorship bias in credit risk modeling is the bias that results in parameter estimates when the survival of a company is ignored. We study the statistical properties of the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) accounting ... 
Mean field analysis gives accurate predictions of the behaviour of large networks of sparsely coupled and heterogeneous neurons
(BioMed Central, 20140721)Large networks of integrateandfire (IF) model neurons are often used to simulate and study the behaviour of biologically realistic networks. However, to fully study the large network behaviour requires an exploration of ... 
Meanfield models for heterogeneous networks of twodimensional integrate and fire neurons
(Frontiers Media, 20171227)We analytically derive meanfield models for alltoall coupled networks of heterogeneous, adapting, twodimensional integrate and fire neurons. The class of models we consider includes the Izhikevich, adaptive exponential ... 
Meaningful faces: Selfrelevance of semantic context in an initial social encounter improves later face recognition
(Springer, 202102)Selfrelevant stimuli (i.e. meaningful/important to the observer and related to the self) are typically remembered better than otherrelevant stimuli. However, whether a selfrelevance memory benefit could be conferred to ... 
Measuring Behaviour Interactions between ProductLine Features
(IEEE, 201505)We suggest a method for measuring the degree to which features interact in featureoriented software development. To this end, we extend the notion of simulation between transition systems to a similarity measure and lift ...
