  • The costs and benefits of multiple mating in a mostly monandrous wasp 

    Boulton, Rebecca; Shuker, David Michael (2015-04) - Journal article
    The taxonomically widespread nature of polyandry remains a puzzle. Much of the empirical work regarding the costs and benefits of multiple mating to females has, for obvious reasons, relied on species that are already ...
  • Could a change in magnetic field geometry cause the break in the wind-activity relation? 

    Vidotto, Aline; Donati, J.-F.; Jardine, Moira Mary; See, Wyke Chun Victor; Petit, P.; Boisse, I.; Boro Saikia, S.; Hébrard, E.; Jeffers, Sandra Victoria; Marsden, S. C.; Morin, J. (2016-01-01) - Journal article
    Wood et al. suggested that mass-loss rate is a function of X-ray flux (dot{M}∝ F_x^{1.34}) for dwarf stars with Fx ≲ Fx,6 ≡ 106 erg cm-2 s-1. However, more active stars do not obey this relation. These authors suggested ...
  • Could molecular pathology testing in lung cancer be more cost effective? 

    Walsh, Kathy; Kheng, Yuan; Oniscu, Anca; Harrison, David James; Wallace, William (2016-07-07) - Journal article
    Aims: EGFR and ALK analysis is routinely undertaken prior to targeted treatment of non-squamous non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). Increasingly limited resources require molecular pathology services to be cost effective ...
  • Count-based state merging for probabilistic regular tree grammars 

    Dietze, Toni; Nederhof, Mark Jan (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2015-06-22) - Conference item
    We present an approach to obtain language models from a tree corpus using probabilistic regular tree grammars (prtg). Starting with a prtg only generating trees from the corpus, the prtg is generalized step by step by ...
  • Countermemory and the (Turkish-)German theatrical archive : reading the documentary remains of Emine Sevgi Özdamar’s Karagöz in Alamania (1986) 

    Stewart, Lizzie (2013) - Journal article
    Theatre history stands in a curious relation to the archive: created from physical, archival documents it then itself helps constitute or contest the ‘cultural archive’ which the ‘imagined community’ of a particular area, ...
  • Counting cases in substitope algorithms 

    Banks, D.C.; Linton, Stephen Alexander; Stockmeyer, P.K. (2004-07) - Journal article
    We describe how to count the cases that arise in a family of visualization techniques, including Marching Cubes, Sweeping Simplices, Contour Meshing, Interval Volumes, and Separating Surfaces. Counting the cases is the ...
  • Counting whales in a challenging, changing environment 

    Williams, R.; Kelly, N.; Boebel, O.; Friedlaender, A. S.; Herr, H.; Kock, K. -H.; Lehnert, L. S.; Maksym, T.; Roberts, J.; Scheidat, M.; Siebert, U.; Brierley, A. S. (2014-03-13) - Journal article
    Estimating abundance of Antarctic minke whales is central to the International Whaling Commission's conservation and management work and understanding impacts of climate change on polar marine ecosystems. Detecting abundance ...
  • Country Portfolios, collateral constraints and optimal monetary policy 

    Senay, Ozge; Sutherland, Alan James (University of St Andrews, 2016-01-29) - Working or discussion paper
    Recent literature shows that, when international financial trade is absent, optimal policy deviates significantly from strict inflation targeting, but when there is trade in equities and bonds, optimal policy is close to ...
  • Coupled complex networks : structure, adaptation and processes 

    Shai, Saray (University of St Andrews, 2014-11) - Thesis
    In the last 15 years, network science has established itself as a leading scientific tool for the study of complex systems, describing how components in a system interact with one another. Understanding the structure and ...
  • Coupling Epitaxy, Chemical Bonding, and Work Function at the Local Scale in Transition Metal-Supported Graphene 

    Wang, Bo; Caffio, Marco; Bromley, Catherine; Fruchtl, Herbert Anton; Schaub, Renald (2010-10) - Journal article
    Resonance tunneling spectroscopy and density functional theory calculations are employed to explore local variations in the electronic surface potential of a single graphene layer grown on Rh(111). A work function modulation ...
  • Coupling of the solar wind, magnetosphere and ionosphere by MHD waves 

    Russell, Alexander J. B. (University of St Andrews, 2010-11-30) - Thesis
    The solar wind, magnetosphere and ionosphere are coupled by magnetohydrodynamic waves, and this gives rise to new and often unexpected behaviours that cannot be produced by a single, isolated part of the system. This ...
  • Coupling polariton quantum boxes in sub-wavelength grating microcavities 

    Zhang, B.; Brodbeck, S.; Wang, Z.; Kamp, M.; Schneider, C.; Höfling, S.; Deng, H. (2015-02-02) - Journal article
    We report the construction of decoupled, coupled, and quasi-one dimensional polariton systems from zero dimensional polariton quantum boxes using microcavities with sub-wavelength gratings as the top mirror. By designing ...
  • The court and household of Edward III, 1360-1377 

    Given-Wilson, Chris (University of St Andrews, 1976) - Thesis
    This thesis is written in two parts. The first part contains an examination of the household functionings as an institution. Although the household was an establishment of declining national importance in the years 1360-1377, ...
  • Covert operations, wars, detainee destinations, and the psychology of democratic peace 

    Crandall, Chris; Cox, Owen; Beasley, Ryan; Omelicheva, Mariya (2015-10-26) - Journal article
    We explore US covert forcible actions against democratic governments and their citizens and show that inter-democratic use of covert force is common and can be accommodated within the theory of democratic peace. Grounded ...
  • CRAWDAD : A Wireless Network Data Archive for WiSec Researchers 

    Henderson, Tristan; Kotz, David (2014-07-23) - Conference poster
