  • Computation of infix probabilities for probabilistic context-free grammars 

    Nederhof, Mark Jan; Satta, Giorgio (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2011-07) - Conference item
    The notion of infix probability has been introduced in the literature as a generalization of the notion of prefix (or initial substring) probability, motivated by applications in speech recognition and word error correction. ...
  • A computational approach to discovering p53 binding sites in the human genome 

    Lim, Ji-Hyun (University of St Andrews, 2013-06) - Thesis
    The tumour suppressor p53 protein plays a central role in the DNA damage response/checkpoint pathways leading to DNA repair, cell cycle arrest, apoptosis and senescence. The activation of p53-mediated pathways is primarily ...

    103RhNMR chemical shifts have been computed at the GIAO-B3LYP level of density functional theory (DFT) for a number of [Rh(COD)(P∩P)]+ complexes [COD = 1,5-cyclooctadiene, P∩P = chelating bis(phosphine) including ...
  • Computational studies of biomolecules 

    Chen, Sih-Yu (University of St Andrews, 2017-06-21) - Thesis
    In modern drug discovery, lead discovery is a term used to describe the overall process from hit discovery to lead optimisation, with the goal being to identify drug candidates. This can be greatly facilitated by the use ...
  • Computational understanding of Li-ion batteries 

    Urban, Alexander; Seo, Dong-Hwa; Ceder, Gerbrand (2016-03-18) - Journal item
    Over the last two decades, computational methods have made tremendous advances, and today many key properties of lithium-ion batteries can be accurately predicted by first principles calculations. For this reason, computations ...
  • Computational, experimental, and statistical analyses of social learning in humans and animals 

    Whalen, Andrew (University of St Andrews, 2016-07-22) - Thesis
    Social learning is ubiquitous among animals and humans and is thought to be critical to the widespread success of humans and to the development and evolution of human culture. Evolutionary theory, however, suggests that ...
  • Computer-aided parameter selection for resistance exercise using machine vision-based capability profile estimation 

    Arandelovic, Ognjen (2017-12) - Journal article
    The penetration of mathematical modelling in sports science to date has been highly limited. In particular and in contrast to most other scientific disciplines, sports science research has been characterized by comparatively ...
  • Computerized self-administered measures of mood and appetite for older adults : the Novel Assessment of Nutrition and Ageing toolkit 

    Brown, Laura J E; Adlam, Tim; Hwang, Faustina; Khadra, Hassan; Maclean, Linda M; Rudd, Bridey; Smith, Tom; Timon, Claire; Williams, Elizabeth A; Astell, Arlene J (2016-02-10) - Journal article
    The "Novel Assessment of Nutrition and Ageing" (NANA) toolkit is a computerized system for collecting longitudinal information about older adults' health and behavior. Here, we describe the validation of six items for ...
  • 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 ...
