    Study question: Do women with BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations have reduced ovarian reserve, as measured by circulating anti-müllerian hormone (AMH) concentration?  Summary answer: Women with a germline mutation in BRCA1 have ...
  • An application of formal concept analysis to neural decoding 

    Endres, D M; Foldiak, Peter; Priss, U (CEUR-WS, 2008) - Conference item
    This paper proposes a novel application of Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) to neural decoding: the semantic relationships between the neural representations of large sets of stimuli are explored using concept lattices. In ...
  • Applications of real number theorem proving in PVS 

    Gottliebsen, Hanne; Hardy, Ruth; Lightfoot, Olga; Martin, Ursula (2013-11) - Journal article
    Real number theorem proving has many uses, particularly for verification of safety critical systems and systems for which design errors may be costly. We discuss a chain of developments building on real number theorem ...
  • An approach to ad hoc cloud computing 

    Kirby, Graham; Dearle, Alan; Macdonald, Angus; Fernandes, Alvaro (University of St Andrews, 2010-02-25) - Report
    We consider how underused computing resources within an enterprise may be harnessed to improve utilization and create an elastic computing infrastructure. Most current cloud provision involves a data center model, in which ...
