  • Community-led initiatives’ everyday politics for sustainability – Conflicting rationalities and aspirations for change? 

    Fischer, Anke; Holstead, Kirsty Lee; Hendrickson, Cary; Virkkula, Outi; Prampolini, Alessandra (2017-06-08) - Journal article
    Community-based initiatives are widely seen to play an essential role in a societal move towards a low carbon, sustainable future. As part of this, there is often an assumption that such initiatives share expectations (i.e. ...
  • Community-level regulation of temporal trends in biodiversity 

    Gotelli, Nicholas; Shimadzu, Hideyasu; Dornelas, Maria; McGill, Brian; Moyes, Faye; Magurran, Anne E. (2017-07-26) - Journal article
    Many theoretical models of community dynamics predict that species richness (S) and total abundance (N) are regulated in their temporal fluctuations. Here we present novel evidence for widespread regulation of biodiversity. ...
  • Community-specific evaluation of tool affordances in wild chimpanzees 

    Gruber, Thibaud; Muller, Martin N.; Reynolds, Vernon; Wrangham, Richard; Zuberbuehler, Klaus (2011-11-03) - Journal article
    The notion of animal culture, defined as socially transmitted community-specific behaviour patterns, remains controversial, notably because the definition relies on surface behaviours without addressing underlying cognitive ...
  • Commutative justice 

    Mildenberger, Carl David (University of St Andrews, 2016-12-01) - Thesis
    The purpose of this thesis is to present a conception of commutative justice. Commutative justice is defined as that part of justice in transfer (as opposed to justice in acquisition as well as distributive or rectificatory ...
  • A commutative noncommutative fractal geometry 

    Samuel, Anthony (University of St Andrews, 2010) - Thesis
    In this thesis examples of spectral triples, which represent fractal sets, are examined and new insights into their noncommutative geometries are obtained. Firstly, starting with Connes' spectral triple for a non-empty ...
  • A compact Airy beam light sheet microscope with a tilted cylindrical lens 

    Yang, Zhengyi; Prokopas, Martynas; Nylk, Jonathan; Coll Llado, Clara; Gunn-Moore, Frank J; Ferrier, David Ellard Keith; Vettenburg, Tom; Dholakia, Kishan (2014-10-01) - Journal article
    Light-sheet imaging is rapidly gaining importance for imaging intact biological specimens. Many of the latest innovations rely on the propagation-invariant Bessel or Airy beams to form an extended light sheet to provide ...
  • Compact corrugated feedhorns with high Gaussian coupling efficiency and -60 dB sidelobes 

    McKay, Johannes Erik; Robertson, Duncan Alexander; Speirs, Peter James; Hunter, Robert Iain; Wylde, Richard John; Smith, Graham Murray (2016-06) - Journal article
    We demonstrate that very high performance, extremely compact, scalar corrugated feedhorns can be designed and constructed by optimizing the excitation and phasing of the HE11, HE12 and HE13 modes near the throat of the ...
  • A compact light-sheet microscope for the study of the mammalian central nervous system 

    Yang, Zhengyi; Haslehurst, Peter; Scott, Suzanne; Emptage, Nigel; Dholakia, Kishan (2016-05-24) - Journal article
    Investigation of the transient processes integral to neuronal function demands rapid and high-resolution imaging techniques over a large field of view, which cannot be achieved with conventional scanning microscopes. Here ...
  • Compact objects in active galactic nuclei and X-ray binaries 

    Cackett, Edward M. (University of St Andrews, 2007) - Thesis
    In this thesis I study the inner-most regions of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) using the reverberation mapping technique, and neutron star low-mass X-ray binaries in quiescence using X-ray observations. Using the 13-year ...
