  • Computing finite semigroups 

    East, J.; Egri-Nagy, A.; Mitchell, J. D.; Péresse, Y. (2015-10-07) - Journal article
    Using a variant of Schreier's Theorem, and the theory of Green's relations, we show how to reduce the computation of an arbitrary subsemigroup of a finite regular semigroup to that of certain associated subgroups. Examples ...
  • 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 ...
  • Computing in permutation groups without memory 

    Cameron, Peter Jephson; Fairbairn, Ben; Gadouleau, Maximilien (2014-11-02) - Journal article
    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 ...
  • Computing the aqueous solubility of organic drug-like molecules and understanding hydrophobicity 

    McDonagh, James L. (University of St Andrews, 2015-06-24) - Thesis
    This thesis covers a range of methodologies to provide an account of the current (2010-2014) state of the art and to develop new methods for solubility prediction. We focus on predictions of intrinsic aqueous solubility, ...
  • The concept of "the human" in the work of Hermann Hesse and Paul Tillich 

    Franklin, Wilbur B. (University of St Andrews, 1977) - Thesis
    "The Concept of 'the Human' in the Work of Hermann Hesse and Paul Tillich" is an interdisciplinary study in theology and literature. Three chapters each on Hesse and Tillich discuss the life work, and critical significance ...
  • The concept of enmity in the political philosophy of Hobbes 

    Jaede, Maximilian (University of St Andrews, 2015-06-23) - Thesis
    To the author’s knowledge, this is the first systematic study of the concept of enmity in the political philosophy of Thomas Hobbes. Examining this important category does not only elucidate the concept itself, but also ...
  • The concept of happiness in Kant's moral, legal and political philosophy 

    Pinheiro Walla, Alice (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - Thesis
    This doctoral thesis analyzes the systematic role of Kant’s conception of happiness in his moral, legal and political theory. Although many of his conclusions and arguments are directly or indirectly influenced by his ...
  • Concepts and meaning in medieval philosophy 

    Read, Stephen (Fordham University Press, 2014-12) - Book item
    In his recent study, Concepts, Fodor identifies five nonnegotiable constraints on any theory of concepts. These theses were all shared by the standard medieval theories of concepts. However, those theories were cognitivist, ...
  • Concepts in context 

    Onofri, Andrea (University of St Andrews, 2013) - Thesis
    My thesis tackles two related problems that have taken center stage in the recent literature on concepts: • What are the individuation conditions of concepts? Under what conditions is a concept C₁ the same concept ...
