  • 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 ...
  • Congo Basin peatlands : threats and conservation priorities 

    Dargie, Greta C.; Lawson, Ian T.; Rayden, Tim; Miles, Lera; Mitchard, Ed; Page, Susan; Bocko, Yannick; Ifo, Suspense; Lewis, Simon (2018-01-16) - Journal article
    The recent publication of the first spatially explicit map of peatlands in the Cuvette Centrale, central Congo Basin, reveals it to be the most extensive tropical peatland complex, at ca. 145,500 km2. With an estimated ...
  • 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 ...
  • Connecting entrepreneurship with homes and neighbourhoods 

    Reuschke, Darja; Mason, Colin; Syrett, Stephen; Van Ham, Maarten (Edward Elgar, 2015-12-18) - Book item

    McDermid, Richard M.; Cappellari, Michele; Alatalo, Katherine; Bayet, Estelle; Blitz, Leo; Bois, Maxime; Bournaud, Frederic; Bureau, Martin; Crocker, Alison F.; Davies, Roger L.; Davis, Timothy A.; de Zeeuw, P. T.; Duc, Pierre-Alain; Emsellem, Eric; Khochfar, Sadegh; Krajnovic, Davor; Kuntschner, Harald; Morganti, Raffaella; Naab, Thorsten; Oosterloo, Tom; Sarzi, Marc; Scott, Nicholas; Serra, Paolo; Weijmans, Anne-Marie; Young, Lisa M. (2014-08-27) - Journal article
    We report on empirical trends between the dynamically determined stellar initial mass function (IMF) and stellar population properties for a complete, volume-limited sample of 260 early-type galaxies from the Atlas3D ...
  • The connection between stellar activity cycles and magnetic field topology 

    See, V.; Jardine, M.; Vidotto, A. A.; Donati, J.-F.; Boro Saikia, S.; Bouvier, J.; Fares, R.; Folsom, C. P.; Gregory, S. G.; Hussain, G.; Jeffers, S. V.; Marsden, S. C.; Morin, J.; Moutou, C.; do Nascimento Jr., J. D.; Petit, P.; Waite, I. A. (2016-11-11) - Journal article
    Zeeman–Doppler imaging (ZDI) has successfully mapped the large-scale magnetic fields of stars over a large range of spectral types, rotation periods and ages. When observed over multiple epochs, some stars show polarity ...
  • Conrad III and the Second Crusade in the Byzantine Empire and Anatolia, 1147 

    Roche, Jason T. (University of St Andrews, 2008) - Thesis
    This thesis aims to revise the established history of the passage of the Second Crusade through the Byzantine Empire and Anatolia in 1147. In particular, it seeks to readdress the ill-fated advance of the army nominally ...
  • Conscientious workmen or booksellers' hacks? : the professional identities of science writers in the mid-nineteenth century 

    Fyfe, Aileen (2005-06) - Journal article
    Existing scholarship on the debates over expertise in mid-nineteenth-century Britain has demonstrated the importance of popular writings on the sciences to definitions of scientific authority. Yet while men of science might ...

    Feijten, P.; van Ham, M. (2013) - Journal article
    Union dissolution is well known to have a disruptive effect on the housing situation of those involved, and often leads to downward moves on the "housing ladder". Much less is known about the geographies of residential ...
  • Consequences of grouped data for testing for departure from circular uniformity 

    Humphreys, Rosalind K; Ruxton, Graeme Douglas (2017-11) - Journal article
    Limits to the precision of circular data often cause grouping of data points into discrete categories; but the effects of grouping on tests for circular uniformity have been little explored. The Rayleigh test is often ...
