      Bid mark-up selection using artificial neural networks and an entropy metric 

      Christodoulou, Symeon E. (2010)
      The purpose of the paper is to perform bid mark-up optimisation through the use of artificial neural networks (ANN) and a metric of the selected bid mark-up's derived entropy. The scope is to provide an alternative, ...

      The effect of correlated and point defects on the vortex lattice melting transition in single-crystal YBa2Cu3O7-δ 

      Kwok, W. K.; Fendrich, J.; Fleshler, S.; Welp, U.; Downey, J.; Crabtree, G. W.; Giapintzakis, John (1994)
      The vortex melting transition Tm in several untwinned and twinned crystals is measured resistively in fields up to 8T. A Lindemann criterion for vortex lattice melting is obtained in addition to a sharp hysteresis in the ...

      Origin of the stabilization of the metastable tetragonal high-pressure phase in SrCuO2 thin films grown on SrTiO3 substrates by pulsed laser deposition 

      Mihailescu, C. N.; Pasuk, I.; Straticiuc, M.; Nita, C. R.; Pantelica, D.; Giapintzakis, John (2014)
      In this work we have systematically investigated the evolution of structure and stoichiometry in SrCuO2 films grown on TiO2-terminated SrTiO3 substrates as a function of the substrate temperature. Depending on the growth ...
