The International by Glenn Patterson( Book )
24 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and German and held by 161 libraries worldwide
Acclaimed Belfast novelist Glenn Patterson's classic novel of a day in the life in that city: a funny, brilliantly observed, bittersweet snapshot of a moment in 1967 just before everything changed. "If I had known history was to be written that Sunday in the International Hotel I might have made an effort to get out of bed before teatime." So begins The International. Danny Hamilton takes us back over three troubled decades to one wonderfully ordinary Saturday, in January 1967, when his 18-year-old self had no idea ' most people had no idea ' that ordinary days in Belfast would soon become tragically rare. Ordinary, but packed with extraordinarily observed characters; and extraordinary enough for Danny to fall in love twice (and think about sex a few more times than that). Ordinary, but when someone calls out "Be careful" in parting, no one takes it lightly and for good reason. First published in the UK in 1999, and reissued by Blackstaff in 2008, The International is a timeless novel: funny, bawdy, deftly crafted, and heartwrenchingly humane. Featuring an essay "On Reading The International" by Man Booker-Prize winner Anne Enright From the Trade Paperback edition

Gull by Glenn Patterson( Book )
5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 99 libraries worldwide
It was one of the most bizarre episodes in the history of the Troubles in Northern Ireland: the construction, during the war's most savage phase, of a factory in West Belfast to make a luxury sports car with gull-wing doors. Huge subsidies were provided by the British government. The first car rolled off the line during the appalling hunger strikes of 1981. The prime mover and central character of this intelligent, witty and moving novel was John DeLorean, brilliant engineer, charismatic entrepreneur and world-class conman. He comes to energetic, seductive life through the eyes of his fixer in Belfast, a traumatised Vietnam veteran, and of a woman who takes a job in the factory against the wishes of her husband. Each of them has secrets and desires they dare not share with anyone they know. A great American hustler brought to vivid life in the most unlikely setting imaginable

Modelling of extreme data in a Wireless Sensor Network through the application of random field theory by Glenn Patterson( Book )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of a large number of small, simple sensor nodes which support sensing, processing, and wireless transmission capabilities in order to monitor some physical environment. The data that they collect will be transmitted to an information sink where it can be accessed by the user. Due to the vast number of nodes expected in many WSN applications, there is the possibility that at certain times the network may have potentially huge amounts of data to transmit to the sink. The fact that the nodes have limited energy resources means that when a huge amount of data is generated, the nodes' batteries will be depleted at aggressive rates as nodes try to forward this data to the sink. This problem will be particularly severe in regions of the network close to the sink, as nodes in these regions will be responsible for routing the data from large areas of the network to the sink. This phenomenon is often described as a "data-implosion" around the sink. We develop a model of the node data in a wireless sensor network based on a stochastic model of the underlying phenomenon being observed by the network. The model is based on a stationary Gaussian random field and we use this model to study the size and spatial distribution of the sets of nodes that observe statistically high data. This knowledge is exploited in order to ameliorate the data-implosion problem. Effectively, we implement a data suppression scheme that only lets nodes which sense statistically high data attempt to transmit their data to the sink. Further, we also use our model to study network data that belongs to a given contour level and show that we can achieve further data suppression by only transmitting node data if it belongs to some predefined contour level. Finally, we show how the knowledge of the size and spatial distribution of statistically high node data in a WSN can be used to study the traffic in both schedule and contention based MAC protocols
