    • Mathematical models in percutaneous absorption 

      S. Roberts, Michael; G. Anissimov, Yuri; A. Gonsalvez, Richard (Cutaneous and Ocular Toxicology, 2001)
      A number of mathematical models have been used to describe percutaneous absorption kinetics. In general, most of these models have used either diffusion-based or compartmental equations. The object of any mathematical model ...
    • Mathematical models in percutaneous absorption 

      S. Roberts, Michael; Anissimov, Yuri (Percutaneous absorption: drugs--cosmetics--mechanisms--methodology, 2005)
    • Mathematical models of skin permeability: An overview 

      Mitragotria, Samir; Anissimov, Yuri; L. Bunge, Annette; Frederick Frasch, H.; H. Guy, Richard; Hadgraft, Jonathan; B. Kasting, Gerald; E. Lane, Majella; S. Roberts, Michael (International Journal of Pharmaceutics, 2011)
      Mathematical models of skin permeability play an important role in various fields including prediction of transdermal drug delivery and assessment of dermal exposure to industrial chemicals. Extensive research has been ...
    • A Mathematical Programming Approach for Strategy Ranking 

      Saen, Reza Farzipoor (Asia Pacific Management Review, 2009)
      Before working out their final strategic plan, managers must consider several feasible alternatives and contemplate various factors behind each of them. It is a very complicated task to rank the strategies. The objective ...
    • Mathematics and the Construction of Feminine Gender Identity 

      Norton, Stephen (28th Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2005)
      Females remain underrepresented in tertiary Mathematics Research has indicated that this is, in part, due to the way that mathematics is traditionally taught This paper reports the results of a participant observation ...

      Grootenboer, Peter; Edwards-Groves, Christine (MERGA36 : Mathematics Education: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, 2013)
      In this paper we will examine mathematics education using practice theory. We outline the theoretical and philosophical ideas that have been developed, and in particular, we discuss the 'sayings', 'doings', and 'relatings' ...
    • Mathematics Education in Rural Australia: Issues for equity and success 

      Jorgensen, Robyn; Lowrie, Tom (Em Teia: Recista de Educacao Matemitca e Techologia Iberoamerica, 2014)
      In writing this paper, we have taken a somewhat different approach to the usual research paper. This is intentional as we recognise the great diversity of what constitutes 'rural' mathematics education internationally. ...
