Journal Article
Shaw, R., Gordon, N. A., & Maks, J. G. (2005). Partial spreads in PG(4,2) and flats in PG(9,2) external to the Grassmannian G1,4,2. Discrete Mathematics, 301(1), 137-146. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.disc.2004.11.023

We consider the following 'even hyperplane construction'of flats in the projective space PG(9, 2) = P(boolean AND(2) V(5, 2)) which are external to the Grassmannian G(1,4,2) of lines of PG(4,2). Let the Grassmann image in G(1,4,2) of a partial spread... Read More about Partial spreads in PG(4,2) and flats in PG(9,2) external to the Grassmannian G1,4,2.

An investigation of the effect of feedback on TLM nodes representing heat transfer (2005)
Journal Article
Koay, A. L., Pulko, S. H., & Wilkinson, A. J. (2005). An investigation of the effect of feedback on TLM nodes representing heat transfer. International journal of numerical modelling, 18(6), 399-411. doi:10.1002/jnm.586

TLM is a very successful technique for modelling thermal transients in heat transfer systems. However, useful though transient modelling is, there are many systems in which the desired thermal behaviour can only be obtained by direct, real-time inter...

The evolution of the racial wage hierarchy in post-apartheid South Africa (2005)
Journal Article

This article develops a multilateral decomposition procedure for the analysis of wage differentials and applies this to the evolution of the racial wage hierarchy in South Africa over the period 1993–2001. We find evidence that the wage position of t... Read More about The evolution of the racial wage hierarchy in post-apartheid South Africa.

Contest duration in animals is often interpreted as being a consequence of mutual assessment of the difference in the competitors' resource-holding potential (RHP), allowing the inferior individual to avoid costly interactions it is likely to lose. D... Read More about Fighting in fiddler crabs Uca mjoebergi: what determines duration?.

A mechanical model for creep, recovery and stress relaxation in polymeric materials (2005)
Journal Article

A mechanical model is presented, in which viscoelastic response is described by the action of time-dependent latch elements. The model represents viscoelastic changes occurring through incremental jumps as opposed to continuous motion. This is suppor...
