  • Could a change in magnetic field geometry cause the break in the wind-activity relation? 

    Vidotto, Aline; Donati, J.-F.; Jardine, Moira; See, Wyke Chun Victor; Petit, P.; Boisse, I.; Boro Saikia, S.; Hébrard, E.; Jeffers, Sandra Victoria; Marsden, S. C.; Morin, J. (2016-01-01) - Journal article
    Wood et al. suggested that mass-loss rate is a function of X-ray flux (dot{M}∝ F_x^{1.34}) for dwarf stars with Fx ≲ Fx,6 ≡ 106 erg cm-2 s-1. However, more active stars do not obey this relation. These authors suggested ...
  • Could molecular pathology testing in lung cancer be more cost effective? 

    Walsh, Kathy; Kheng, Yuan; Oniscu, Anca; Harrison, David James; Wallace, William (2016-10) - Journal article
    Aims: EGFR and ALK analysis is routinely undertaken prior to targeted treatment of non-squamous non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). Increasingly limited resources require molecular pathology services to be cost effective ...
  • Count-based state merging for probabilistic regular tree grammars 

    Dietze, Toni; Nederhof, Mark Jan (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2015-06-22) - Conference item
    We present an approach to obtain language models from a tree corpus using probabilistic regular tree grammars (prtg). Starting with a prtg only generating trees from the corpus, the prtg is generalized step by step by ...
  • Counter-intuitive influence of Himalayan river morphodynamics on Indus Civilisation urban settlements 

    Singh, Ajit; Thomsen, Kristina J.; Sinha, Rajiv; Buylaert, Jan-Pieter; Carter, Andrew; Mark, Darren F.; Mason, Philippa J.; Densmore, Alexander L.; Murray, Andrew S.; Jain, Mayank; Paul, Debajyoti; Gupta, Sanjeev (2017-11-28) - Journal article
    Urbanism in the Bronze-age Indus Civilisation (~4.6–3.9 thousand years before the present, ka) has been linked to water resources provided by large Himalayan river systems, although the largest concentrations of urban-scale ...
  • Counterfactual reasoning in strategy context : a theoretical investigation of the role of hindsight in strategic foresight 

    MacKay, R. Bradley (University of St Andrews, 2004) - Thesis
    The purpose of this doctoral thesis is to deepen theoretical understanding of the role that hindsight plays in foresight. The thesis argues that the past is not an isolated static state, but one that is intimately connected ...
  • Countermemory and the (Turkish-)German theatrical archive : reading the documentary remains of Emine Sevgi Özdamar’s Karagöz in Alamania (1986) 

    Stewart, Lizzie (2013) - Journal article
    Theatre history stands in a curious relation to the archive: created from physical, archival documents it then itself helps constitute or contest the ‘cultural archive’ which the ‘imagined community’ of a particular area, ...
  • Counting cases in substitope algorithms 

    Banks, D.C.; Linton, Stephen Alexander; Stockmeyer, P.K. (2004-07) - Journal article
    We describe how to count the cases that arise in a family of visualization techniques, including Marching Cubes, Sweeping Simplices, Contour Meshing, Interval Volumes, and Separating Surfaces. Counting the cases is the ...
  • Counting chirps : acoustic monitoring of cryptic frogs 

    Measey, G. John; Stevenson, Ben C.; Scott, Tanya; Altwegg, Res; Borchers, David L. (2017-06) - Journal article
    1 .  Global amphibian declines have resulted in a vital need for monitoring programmes that follow population trends. Monitoring using advertisement calls is ideal as choruses are undisturbed during data collection. However, ...
  • Counting subwords and other results related to the generalised star-height problem for regular languages 

    Bourne, Thomas (University of St Andrews, 2017-12-07) - Thesis
    The Generalised Star-Height Problem is an open question in the field of formal language theory that concerns a measure of complexity on the class of regular languages; specifically, it asks whether or not there exists an ...
  • Counting the cost : Church of the Brethren as a hermeneutical community 

    Hamilton, Andrew S. (University of St Andrews, 2003) - Thesis
    The purpose of this thesis is to introduce the Church of the Brethren as a unique community sharing Its tradition roots with both Radical Pietism and Anabaptism; to identify the hermeneutical perspective of the Early ...
  • Counting whales in a challenging, changing environment 

    Williams, R.; Kelly, N.; Boebel, O.; Friedlaender, A. S.; Herr, H.; Kock, K. -H.; Lehnert, L. S.; Maksym, T.; Roberts, J.; Scheidat, M.; Siebert, U.; Brierley, A. S. (2014-03-13) - Journal article
    Estimating abundance of Antarctic minke whales is central to the International Whaling Commission's conservation and management work and understanding impacts of climate change on polar marine ecosystems. Detecting abundance ...
  • Country Portfolios, collateral constraints and optimal monetary policy 

    Senay, Ozge; Sutherland, Alan James (University of St Andrews, 2016-01-29) - Working or discussion paper
    Recent literature shows that, when international financial trade is absent, optimal policy deviates significantly from strict inflation targeting, but when there is trade in equities and bonds, optimal policy is close to ...
  • Coupled bulk-surface free boundary problems arising from a mathematical model of receptor-ligand dynamics 

    Elliot, Charles M.; Ranner, Thomas; Venkataraman, Chandrasekhar (2017-02-08) - Journal article
    We consider a coupled bulk-surface system of partial differential equations with nonlinear coupling modelling receptor-ligand dynamics. The model arises as a simplification of a mathematical model for the reaction between ...
  • Coupled complex networks : structure, adaptation and processes 

    Shai, Saray (University of St Andrews, 2014-11) - Thesis
    In the last 15 years, network science has established itself as a leading scientific tool for the study of complex systems, describing how components in a system interact with one another. Understanding the structure and ...

    Russell, Alexander J. B. (University of St Andrews, 2010-11-30) - Thesis
    The solar wind, magnetosphere and ionosphere are coupled by magnetohydrodynamic waves, and this gives rise to new and often unexpected behaviours that cannot be produced by a single, isolated part of the system. This ...
