  • Conflicting models of authority and expertise in Frontinus’ Strategemata 

    Konig, Alice Rebecca (Cambridge University Press, 2017-01) - Book item
    At the start of his Strategemata, Frontinus claims to be (almost) unique in having drawn up a ‘science’ of warfare. He is referring to his now lost treatise, On the Art of War, and stamping his authority and expertise on ...
  • Conformable holographic metasurfaces 

    Burch, James; Wen, Dandan; Chen, Xianzhong; Di Falco, Andrea (2017-07-03) - Journal article
    Metasurface holograms are typically fabricated on rigid substrates. Here we experimentally demonstrate broadband, flexible, conformable, helicity multiplexed metasurface holograms operating in the visible range, offering ...
  • Conformal gravity rotation curves with a conformal Higgs halo 

    Horne, Keith Douglas (2016-06-01) - Journal article
    We discuss the effect of a conformally coupled Higgs field on Conformal Gravity (CG) predictions for the rotation curves of galaxies. The Mannheim-Kazanas (MK) metric is a valid vacuum solution of CG's 4-th order Poisson ...

    Cormanich, Rodrigo Antonio; Rittner, Roberto; Buehl, Michael (2015) - Journal article
    The conformational behaviour of Ac-Gly-NHMe in nonpolar, polar and polar protic solutions was systematically studied in this work by theoretical calculations and experimental infrared and 1H NMR spectroscopies. Ac-Gly-NHMe ...
  • Conformations of large macrocycles and ring-in-ring complexes 

    Klosterman, Jeremy K.; Veliks, Janis; Frantz, Derik K.; Yasui, Yoshizumi; Loepfe, Michael; Zysman-Colman, Eli; Linden, Anthony; Siegel, Jay S. (2016-06-01) - Journal article
    A kinetically directed, stepwise approach towards molecular Borromean links enabled the isolation and structural characterization of synthetic intermediates along the way. Here we report the synthesis and crystal structures ...
  • Conformed to the truth 

    Simpson, Eddie (St Mary's College, University of St Andrews, 2009-12-01) - Journal article
    Reflections by a former student of T. F. Torrance
  • Conformity cannot be identified based on population-level signatures 

    Acerbi, Alberto; van Leeuwen, Eduard Johannes Cornelis; Haun, Daniel; Tennie, Claudio (2016-10-31) - Journal article
    Conformist transmission, defined as a disproportionate likelihood to copy the majority, is considered a potent mechanism underlying the emergence and stabilization of cultural diversity. However, ambiguity within and across ...
  • Confronting Islamic Jihadist movements 

    Upal, M. Afzal (Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence, University of St Andrews, 2015-05-25) - Journal article
    This paper argues that in order to win the long-term fight against Islamic Jihadist movements, we must confront their ideological foundations and provide the majority of Muslims with an alternative narrative that satisfies ...
  • Confronting nightmares : responding to iconoclasm in Western museums and art galleries 

    Scott, Helen E. (University of St Andrews, 2009-11) - Thesis
    It is not an everyday event for an artwork in a museum or gallery to be harmed deliberately by a member of the public. Such acts of iconoclasm do occur more regularly than many people might assume though, and when attacks ...
  • Confusion and collectivism in the ICT sector : is FLOSS the answer? 

    Marks, Abigail; Chillas, Shiona; Galloway, Laura; Maclean, Gavin (2017-03-13) - Journal article
    Information and Communication Technology (ICT) workers rarely join trade unions. This is usually explained by the individualised nature of work. We examine broader forms of collectivism for these workers, drawing on survey ...
  • Congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism due to GnRH receptor mutations in three brothers reveal sites affecting conformation and coupling 

    Tello, Javier; Newton, Claire; Bouligand, Jerome; Guiochon-Mantel, Anne; Millar, Robert; Young, Jacques (2012-06-05) - Journal article
    Congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (CHH) is characterized by low gonadotropins and failure to progress normally through puberty. Mutations in the gene encoding the GnRH receptor (GNRHR1) result in CHH when present ...
  • Congress for the Future 

    Sustainable Development Commission (Sustainable Development Commission, 2009-07-08) - Report
    A new high-profile space for UK citizens to engage with and inform long-term political thinking. This paper sets out the rationale and requirement for Congress for the Future, and the process by which it could be a created.
  • A conjugate gradient minimisation approach to generating holographic traps for ultracold atoms 

    Harte, Tiffany; Bruce, Graham D.; Keeling, Jonathan; Cassettari, Donatella (2014-11-03) - Journal article
    Direct minimisation of a cost function can in principle provide a versatile and highly controllable route to computational hologram generation. However, to date iterative Fourier transform algorithms have been predominantly ...
  • Connected networks of sea lice populations : dynamics and implications for control 

    Adams, Thomas P.; Proud, Roland; Black, Kenneth D. (2015-05) - Journal article
    In studies of the population dynamics of parasitic sea lice and the implications of outbreaks for salmon farms, several types of mathematical models have been implemented. Delay differential equation models describe the ...
