    This thesis is primarily concerned with the trade-off between computational complexity and accuracy in digital receivers. Furthermore, because OFDM modulation is key in 4G systems, there is an interest in better demodulation ...
  • Variation in DNA repair genes XRCC3, XRCC4, and XRCC5 and susceptibility ot myeloma 

    Hayden, Patrick John (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Haematology, 2010)
    Cytogenetic analysis in myeloma reveals marked chromosomal instability. Both widespread genomic alterations and evidence of aberrant class switch recombination, the physiological process that regulates maturation of the ...
  • Variation of the electronic functionality of self-seeded germanium nanowires through synthesis determined core-shell interface states 

    Connaughton, Stephen (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2015)
    Bottom up grown germanium nanowires may have an important role to play in future electronic devices. While the electrical properties of nanowires grown using a metallic seed as a catalyst have been extensively reported we ...
  • Variation within phonetics and phonology 

    Wogan, John (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Centre for Language and Communication Studies, 2006)
    This thesis investigates variation from phonetic and phonological perspectives in a bid to better understand the relationship between phonetics and phonology. Issues pertaining to variation within phonetics and phonology ...
  • Variational Bayes approximation for inverse regression problems 

    Vatsa, Richa (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2011)
    Inverse regression is a tool to predict an unknown explanatory variable for given observations of a response variable in a regression problem. The prediction problem is usually carried out in two stages: firstly, to fit ...
  • Variations in silver stained nucleolar organiser regions(AgNORs) in normal, irradiated and neoplastic tissues 

    McDermott, Joseph Gallagher (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Microbiology, 2001)
    Nucleolar organiser regions (NORs) are loops of ribosomal DNA which contain the genes that transcribe to ribosomal RNA. They are situated on the short arm of the acrocentric human chromosomes 13, 14, 15, 21 and 22. Several ...
  • Vascular correlates of cognitive performance in a community based elderly population 

    Chin, Ai- Vyrn (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Clinical Medicine, 2010)
    Population studies suggest that cardiovascular risk factors may be associated with cognitive impairment. Epidemiological studies evaluating individual markers of vascular disease as a risk factor for cognitive dysfunction ...
