  • Hawking radiation in dispersive media 

    Robertson, Scott James (University of St Andrews, 2011-06-24) - Thesis
    Hawking radiation, despite its presence in theoretical physics for over thirty years, remains elusive and undetected. It also suffers, in its original context of gravitational black holes, from conceptual difficulties. Of ...
  • Monte Carlo radiation transfer studies of protoplanetary environments 

    Walker, Christina H. (University of St Andrews, 2007-06-19) - Thesis
    Monte Carlo radiation transfer provides an efficient modelling tool for probing the dusty local environment of young stars. Within this thesis, such theoretical models are used to study the disk structure of objects across ...
