  • 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
  • Descriptor transition tables for object retrieval using unconstrained cluttered video acquired using a consumer level handheld mobile device 

    Rieutort-Louis, Warren; Arandelovic, Ognjen (IEEE, 2016-03-15) - Conference item
    Visual recognition and vision based retrieval of objects from large databases are tasks with a wide spectrum of potential applications. In this paper we propose a novel recognition method from video sequences suitable for ...
  • 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
    As part of a European wide effort to develop metathesis catalysts for use in fine chemical and pharmaceutical compound synthesis, this study focuses on the design and synthesis of ruthenium based catalysts for olefin ...
  • Design and synthesis of wide bite angle phosphacyclic ligands 

    Gillespie, Jason A. (University of St Andrews, 2012-06) - Thesis
    By examining structure activity relationships for a given catalytic reaction it is possible to discover what ligand features and parameters lead to stable and highly active/selective catalyst systems. With this knowledge ...
  • Design and technology challenges for body proximate display ecosystems 

    Grubert, Jens; Kranz, Matthias; Quigley, Aaron John (ACM Press - Association for Computing Machinery, 2015-08-24) - Conference item
    Body proximate display environments can be formed by combining multiple hand-held, head-mounted, wrist-worn or other displays. Wearable displays such as smartwatches and smartglasses have the potential to extend the ...
  • Design of high-performance millimeter wave and sub-millimeter wave quasi-optical isolators and circulators 

    Hunter, Robert Iain; Robertson, Duncan Alexander; Goy, P; Smith, Graham Murray (2007-05) - Journal article
    Faraday rotators using permanently magnetized ferrite materials are used to make quasi-optical isolators and circulators at millimeter wave and sub-millimeter wave frequencies that have far higher performance than their ...
  • Design, implementation and deployment of state machines using a generative approach 

    Kirby, Graham Njal Cameron; Dearle, Alan; Norcross, Stuart John (Springer, 2008) - Book item
    We describe an approach to designing and implementing a distributed system as a family of related finite state machines, generated from a single abstract model. Various artefacts are generated from each state machine, ...
