Computer assisted orthopaedic surgical system for insertion of distal locking screws in intra-medullary nails: a valid and reliable navigation system (2005)
Journal Article
Malek, S., Phillips, R., Mohsen, A., Viant, W., Bielby, M., & Sherman, K. (2005). Computer assisted orthopaedic surgical system for insertion of distal locking screws in intra-medullary nails: a valid and reliable navigation system. International Journal of Medical Robotics and Computer Assisted Surgery, 1(4), 34-44. doi:10.1002/rcs.54

The insertion of distal locking screws is a difficult task in intra-medullary (IM) nailing operations of long bones and contributes a significant proportion to the overall operating time. The current technique to insert these screws uses numerous flu... Read More

The development and evaluation of a virtual radiotherapy treatment machine using an immersive visualisation environment (2005)
Journal Article
Bridge, P., Appleyard, R. M., Ward, J. W., Philips, R., & Beavis, A. W. (2007). The development and evaluation of a virtual radiotherapy treatment machine using an immersive visualisation environment. Computers & education, 49(2), (481-494). doi:10.1016/j.compedu.2005.10.006. ISSN 0360-1315

Due to the lengthy learning process associated with complicated clinical techniques, undergraduate radiotherapy students can struggle to access sufficient time or patients to gain the level of expertise they require. By developing a hybrid virtual en... Read More

Constructive implicit fitting (2005)
Journal Article
Li, Q., Griffiths, J. G., & Ward, J. (2005). Constructive implicit fitting. Computer aided geometric design, 23(1), 17-44. doi:10.1016/j.cagd.2005.04.011

In this paper, we present a constructive method for fitting both an explicit and an implicit curve or surface to a set of scattered points by using gate functions. With this technique, the data are first partitioned with geometric primitives into sma... Read More

The classification of flats in PG (9, 2) which are external to the grassmannian script G sign1,4,2 (2005)
Journal Article
Shaw, R., Maks, J. G., & Gordon, N. A. (2005). The classification of flats in PG (9, 2) which are external to the grassmannian script G sign1,4,2. Designs, codes, and cryptography, 34(2-3), 203-227. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10623-004-4855-6

Constructions are given of different kinds of flats in the projective space$$PG(9,2)={\mathbb P}(\wedge^{2}V(5,2))$$which are external to the Grassmannian$${\cal G}_{\bf 1,4,2}$$of lines ofPG(4,2). In particular it is shown that there exist precisely... Read More

Experiences of embedding Information Technology into discipline based teaching (2005)
Journal Article
Gordon, N. (2005). Experiences of embedding Information Technology into discipline based teaching. Innovation in teaching and learning in information and computer sciences, 4(1), 1-9. doi:10.11120/ital.2005.04010002

In this paper we will reflect upon some of the experiences that the author had whilst supporting the embedding of Information Technology (I.T.) into a U.K. mathematics department’s undergraduate teaching. The paper includes some examples of the... Read More
