  • Complex patterns of signalling to convey different social goals of sex in bonobos, Pan paniscus 

    Genty, Emilie; Neumann, Christof; Zuberbuehler, Klaus (2015-11-05) - Journal article
    Sexual behaviour in bonobos (Pan paniscus) functions beyond mere reproduction to mediate social interactions and relationships. In this study, we assessed the signalling behaviour in relation to four social goals of sex ...
  • Complex Region Spatial Smoother (CReSS) 

    Scott Hayward, Lindesay Alexandra Sarah; MacKenzie, Monique Lea; Donovan, Carl Robert; Walker, Cameron; Ashe, Erin (University of St Andrews, 2011) - Report
    Conventional smoothing over complicated coastal and island regions may result in errors across boundaries, due to the use of Euclidean distances to represent inter-point similarity. The new Complex Region Spatial Smoother ...
  • Complexity and bounded rationality in individual decision problems 

    Diasakos, Theodoros (University of St Andrews, 2013-10) - Working or discussion paper
    I develop a model of endogenous bounded rationality due to search costs, arising implicitly from the problem's complexity. The decision maker is not required to know the entire structure of the problem when making choices ...
  • A component-based model and language for wireless sensor network applications 

    Dearle, Alan; Balasubramaniam, Dharini; Lewis, Jonathan Peter; Morrison, Ronald (IEEE Computer Society, 2008-07) - Conference item
    Wireless sensor networks are often used by experts in many different fields to gather data pertinent to their work. Although their expertise may not include software engineering, these users are expected to produce low-level ...
  • Comprehensive area assessment consultation 

    Sustainable Development Commission (Sustainable Development Commission, 2008-02-19) - Report
    The proposals for the new comprehensive area assessment are a very positive step forward for sustainable development compared to previous local performance assessment frameworks, but will need further strengthening if they ...
  • Computation of distances for regular and context-free probabilistic languages 

    Nederhof, Mark Jan; Satta, Giorgio (2008-05-01) - Journal article
    Several mathematical distances between probabilistic languages have been investigated in the literature, motivated by applications in language modeling, computational biology, syntactic pattern matching and machine learning. ...
  • Computation of infix probabilities for probabilistic context-free grammars 

    Nederhof, Mark Jan; Satta, Giorgio (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2011-07) - Conference item
    The notion of infix probability has been introduced in the literature as a generalization of the notion of prefix (or initial substring) probability, motivated by applications in speech recognition and word error correction. ...
  • A computational approach to discovering p53 binding sites in the human genome 

    Lim, Ji-Hyun (University of St Andrews, 2013-06) - Thesis
    The tumour suppressor p53 protein plays a central role in the DNA damage response/checkpoint pathways leading to DNA repair, cell cycle arrest, apoptosis and senescence. The activation of p53-mediated pathways is primarily ...
  • A computational framework for particle and whole cell tracking applied to a real biological dataset 

    Yang, Feng Wei; Venkataraman, Chandrasekhar; Styles, Vanessa; Kuttenberger, Verena; Horn, Elias; von Guttenberg, Zeno; Madzvamuse, Anotida (2016-05-24) - Journal article
    Cell tracking is becoming increasingly important in cell biology as it provides a valuable tool for analysing experimental data and hence furthering our understanding of dynamic cellular phenomena. The advent of high-throughput, ...
  • Computational inference of neural information flow networks 

    Smith, Victoria Anne; Yu, Jing; Smulders, Tom V; Hartemink, Alex J; Jarvis, Erich D (2006-11) - Journal article
    Determining how information flows along anatomical brain pathways is a fundamental requirement for understanding how animals perceive their environments, learn, and behave. Attempts to reveal such neural information flow ...
  • Computational Insight into Rh-103 Chemical Shift-Structure Correlations in Rhodium Bis(phosphine) Complexes 

    Ortuno, Manuel A.; Castro, Ludovic; Buehl, Michael (2013-11-11) - Journal article
    103RhNMR chemical shifts have been computed at the GIAO-B3LYP level of density functional theory (DFT) for a number of [Rh(COD)(P∩P)]+ complexes [COD = 1,5-cyclooctadiene, P∩P = chelating bis(phosphine) including ...
  • Computational, experimental, and statistical analyses of social learning in humans and animals 

    Whalen, Andrew (University of St Andrews, 2016-07-22) - Thesis
    Social learning is ubiquitous among animals and humans and is thought to be critical to the widespread success of humans and to the development and evolution of human culture. Evolutionary theory, however, suggests that ...
  • Computing in matrix groups without memory 

    Cameron, Peter Jephson; Fairbairn, Ben; Gadouleau, Maximilien (2014-11-02) - Journal article
    Memoryless computation is a novel means of computing any function of a set of registers by updating one register at a time while using no memory. We aim to emulate how computations are performed on modern cores, since they ...

    Memoryless computation is a new technique to compute any function of a set of registers by updating one register at a time while using no memory. Its aim is to emulate how computations are performed in modern cores, since ...
  • Computing partition functions of PCFGs 

    Nederhof, Mark Jan; Satta, Giorgio (2008-10) - Journal article
    We investigate the problem of computing the partition function of a probabilistic context-free grammar, and consider a number of applicable methods. Particular attention is devoted to PCFGs that result from the intersection ...
