  • Deontic Reasoning Across Contexts 

    Snedegar, Justin (Springer, 2014) - Book item
    Contrastivism about `ought' holds that `ought' claims are relativized, at least implicitly, to sets of mutually exclusive but not necessarily jointly exhaustive alternatives. This kind of theory can solve puzzles that face ...
  • The depiction of St. John the Baptist's legend in Florence, 1300-1500 

    Chen, Yi-Pei (University of St Andrews, 1999) - Thesis
    This thesis focuses on the portrayal of St. John the Baptist in Florence during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The first chapter is devoted to the examination of the Baptist's legend as outlined in the Bible and ...
  • Depictions of sainthood in the Latin saints' lives of twelfth-century England 

    Harris, Eilidh (University of St Andrews, 2014-07-28) - Thesis
    This thesis examines the depiction of saintly figures within the Latin vitae of twelfth-century England (1066–c.1215). It tests the extent to which these depictions are homogeneous and examines what factors may have shaped ...
  • Depletion of nonlinearity in the pressure force driving Navier-Stokes flows : nonlinear depletion in NS flows 

    Tran, Chuong Van; Yu, Xinwei (2015-04-17) - Journal article
    The dynamics of the velocity norms ||u||Lq for q ≥ 3, in Navier-Stokes flows is studied. The pressure term that drives this dynamics has a high degree of nonlinear depletion, which owes its origin to a genuine negative ...
  • Depression : cognitive, social, environmental and emotional factors 

    Holttum, Susan (University of St Andrews, 1991) - Thesis
    This work examined four issues, in relation to both the experience of depression, and vulnerability to depression. There were four empirical studies, each with two parts. The first study examined the role of cognitions, ...
  • Depth perception not found in human observers for static or dynamic anti-correlated random dot stereograms 

    Hibbard, Paul B.; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Haigh, Emma C.; Adrain, Melanie (2014-01-08) - Journal article
    One of the greatest challenges in visual neuroscience is that of linking neural activity with perceptual experience. In the case of binocular depth perception, important insights have been achieved through comparing neural ...
  • Depth perception with gaze-contingent depth of field 

    Mauderer, M.; Conte, S.; Nacenta, M.A.; Vishwanath, D. (ACM Press - Association for Computing Machinery, 2014-04-26) - Conference item
    Blur in images can create the sensation of depth because it emulates an optical property of the eye; namely, the limited depth of field created by the eye's lens. When the human eye looks at an object, this object appears ...
  • Derivatisable cyanobactin analogues : a semisynthetic approach 

    Oueis, Emilia; Adamson, Catherine S; Mann, Greg; Ludewig, Hannes; Naismith, Jim; Redpath, Philip; Migaud, Marie; Westwood, Nicholas James; Naismith, Jim (2015-12-14) - Journal article
    Many natural cyclic peptides have potent and potentially useful biological activities. Their use as therapeutic starting points is often limited by the quantities available, the lack of known biological targets and the ...
  • The desaturase gene family : an evolutionary study of putative speciation genes in 12 species of Drosophila 

    Keays, Maria C. (University of St Andrews, 2011-11-30) - Thesis
    The formation and persistence of species are the subject of much debate among biologists. Many species of Drosophila are behaviourally isolated, meaning that heterospecific individuals are not attracted to one another and ...
  • Description and seasonal detection of two potential whale calls recorded in the Indian Ocean 

    Sousa, Andreia G; Harris, Danielle (2015-09) - Journal article
    Unidentified acoustic signals are recorded by hydrophones placed in the world's oceans. Some of these sounds are suspected to originate from marine mammals. In this study, two acoustic signals recorded by two arrays at ...
  • A description of 'aspectual' phenomena in Arabic 

    Sitrak, Sami J. (University of St Andrews, 1986) - Thesis
    The present work is mainly concerned with a description of the morphological and syntactic analyses of the predicative aspectual phenomena in Modern Standard Arabic using Axiomatic Functionalism as its theoretical ...
  • A description of LATTE outputs 

    Marques, Tiago A.; Thomas, Len (University of St Andrews, 2015-10-30) - Report
  • Design and analysis of line transect surveys for primates 

    Buckland, Stephen Terrence; Plumptre, A J; Thomas, Len; Rexstad, Eric A (2010-10) - Journal article
    Line transect surveys are widely used for estimating abundance of primate populations. The method relies on a small number of key assumptions, and if these are not met, substantial bias may occur. For a variety of reasons, ...
  • Design and applications of flexible photonic membranes 

    Reader-Harris, Peter; Kirkpatrick, Blair C.; Di Falco, Andrea (SPIE, 2014-02-01) - Conference item
    In this paper we present the design and applications of flexible photonic membranes. We discuss their use as versatile photonic layers in the framework of lab-on-fibre applications, specifically focusing on the design of ...
  • Design and synthesis of chemical probes for the plekstrin homology domain 

    Elliott, Thomas S. (University of St Andrews, 2010-11-30) - Thesis
    The phosphatidylinositol polyphosphates play a fundamental role in intracellular signalling. Of particular importance is phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate [PtdIns(3,4,5)P₃], which acts by recruiting effector proteins ...
  • Design and synthesis of chemical probes for the protein kinase B PH domain 

    Nemeth, Joseph (University of St Andrews, 2008-06-25) - Thesis
    Phosphatidyl D-myo-inositol (3,4,5)-trisphosphate [PtdIns(3,4,5)P3] contributes to the activation of protein kinase B (PKB) by interacting with the PKB PH domain. PKB is known to be up-regulated in several cancer cell ...
  • Design and synthesis of ruthenium indenylidene-based catalysts for olefin metathesis 

    Urbina-Blanco, César A. (University of St Andrews, 2013) - Thesis
