  • Competing for attention : is the showiest also the best? 

    Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco (University of St Andrews, 2014-04) - Working or discussion paper
    We introduce attention games. Alternatives ranked by quality (producers, politicians, sexual partners...) desire to be chosen and compete for the imperfect attention of a chooser by investing in their own salience. We prove ...
  • Competition, profitability and risk in US banking 

    McMillan, Fiona Jayne (University of St Andrews, 2014-11) - Thesis
    This thesis is concerned with the relationships between profit, profit persistence, risk and competition within the US commercial bank sector. In particular, the thesis asks three questions: how profit and profit persistence ...
  • The compilational history of the 'Megilloth' : canon, contoured intertextuality and meaning in the writings 

    Stone, Timothy J. (University of St Andrews, 2011) - Thesis
    It is widely agreed among scholars that the third part of the Hebrew canon, the Writings, is a miscellaneous collection of materials, as its name would seem to suggest. My thesis re-examines this assumption. The ...
  • A complementary study of perovskites : combining diffraction, solid-state NMR and first principles DFT calculations 

    Johnston, Karen Elizabeth (University of St Andrews, 2010) - Thesis
    Perovskites, ABX₃, and their associated solid-solutions are a particularly important and attractive area of research within materials chemistry. Owing to their structural and compositional flexibility and potential ...
  • The complete catalogue of light curves in equal-mass binary microlensing 

    Liebig, Christine; D'Ago, Giuseppe; Bozza, Valerio; Dominik, Martin (2015-06-21) - Journal article
    The light curves observed in microlensing events due to binary lenses span an extremely wide variety of forms, characterized by U-shaped caustic crossings and/or additional smoother peaks. However, all peaks of the binary-lens ...
  • The complete genome sequence and comparative genome analysis of the high pathogenicity Yersinia enterocolitica strain 8081 

    Thomson, Nicholas R.; Howard, Sarah; Wren, Brendan W.; Holden, Matthew T. G.; Crossman, Lisa; Challis, Gregory L.; Churcher, Carol; Mungall, Karen; Brooks, Karen; Chillingworth, Tracey; Feltwell, Theresa; Abdellah, Zahra; Hauser, Heidi; Jagels, Kay; Maddison, Mark; Moule, Sharon; Sanders, Mandy; Whitehead, Sally; Quail, Michael A.; Dougan, Gordon; Parkhill, Julian; Prentice, Michael B. (2006-12) - Journal article
    The human enteropathogen, Yersinia enterocolitica, is a significant link in the range of Yersinia pathologies extending from mild gastroenteritis to bubonic plague. Comparison at the genomic level is a key step in our ...
  • Complete genome sequence of MIDG2331, a genetically tractable serovar 8 clinical isolate of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae 

    Bossé, Janine T; Chaudhuri, Roy R.; Li, Yanwen; Leanse, Leon G.; Fernandez Crespo, Roberto; Coupland, Paul; Holden, Matthew T G; Bazzolli, Denise M.; Maskell, Duncan J.; Tucker, Alexander W.; Wren, Brendan W.; Rycroft, Andrew N.; Langford, Paul R.; on behalf of the BRaDP1T consortium (2016-01-28) - Journal article
    We report here the complete annotated genome sequence of a clinical serovar 8 isolate Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae MIDG2331. Unlike the serovar 8 reference strain 405, MIDG2331 is amenable to genetic manipulation via ...
  • Complete markets strikes back : Revisiting risk sharing tests under discount rate heterogeneity 

    Sun, Gang (University of St Andrews, 2013-02) - Working or discussion paper
    Recent risk sharing tests strongly reject the hypothesis of complete markets, because in the data: (1) the individual consumption comoves with income and (2) the consumption dispersion increases over the life cycle. In ...
  • 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 ...
  • Composition as identity : framing the debate 

    Cotnoir, Aaron (Oxford University Press, 2014-08) - Book item
  • 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. ...

    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 ...
