  • Deciphering satellite observations of compressional ULF waveguide modes 

    Elsden, Tom; Wright, Andrew Nicholas; Hartinger, Michael (2016-04) - Journal article

  • Decision errors, legal uncertainty and welfare : a general treatment 

    Ulph, David Tregear; Katsoulacos, Yannis (University of St Andrews, 2014-02) - Working or discussion paper
    This paper provides a general treatment of the implications for welfare of legal uncertainty. We distinguish legal uncertainty from decision errors: though the former can be influenced by the latter, the latter are neither ...
  • Decision-making under risk of loss in children 

    Steelandt, Sophie; Broihanne, Marie-Helene; Romain, Amelie; Thierry, Bernard; Dufour, Valerie (2013-01-09) - Journal article
    In human adults, judgment errors are known to often lead to irrational decision-making in risky contexts. While these errors can affect the accuracy of profit evaluation, they may have once enhanced survival in dangerous ...
  • The decomposition of the Faroe-Shetland Channel water masses using Parametric Optimum Multi-Parameter analysis 

    McKenna, C.; Berx, B.; Austin, William (2016-01) - Journal article
    The Faroe-Shetland Channel (FSC) is an important conduit for the poleward flow of Atlantic water towards the Nordic Seas and, as such, it plays an integral part in the Atlantic's thermohaline circulation. Mixing processes ...
  • Decomposition tables for experiments : I. A chain of randomizations 

    Brien, C. J.; Bailey, Rosemary Anne (2009-12) - Journal article
    One aspect of evaluating the design for an experiment is the discovery of the relationships between subspaces of the data space. Initially we establish the notation and methods for evaluating an experiment with a single ...
  • Decomposition tables for experiments : II. Two–one randomizations 

    Brien, C. J.; Bailey, Rosemary Anne (2010-10) - Journal article
    We investigate structure for pairs of randomizations that do not follow each other in a chain. These are unrandomized-inclusive, independent, coincident or double randomizations. This involves taking several structures ...
  • Deep brain stimulation of different pedunculopontine targets in a novel rodent model of parkinsonism 

    Gut, N.K.; Winn, P. (2015-03-25) - Journal article
    The pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus (PPTg) has been proposed as a target for deep brain stimulation (DBS) in parkinsonian patients, particularly for symptoms such as gait and postural difficulties refractory to dopaminergic ...
