    Since the early 20th Century, Africa has witnessed varying degrees of subversion from the Mau Mau nationalist campaigners in Kenya in the 1950s to acts by rebel groups in the infamous intrastate wars of Sub-Saharan Africa. ...
  • Dropout dynamics in pulsed quantum dot lasers due to mode jumping 

    Sokolovskii, G. S.; Viktorov, E. A.; Abusaa, M.; Danckaert, J.; Dudelev, V. V.; Kolykhalova, E. D.; Soboleva, K. K.; Deryagin, A. G.; Novikov, I. I.; Maximov, M. V.; Zhukov, A. E.; Ustinov, V. M.; Kuchinskii, V. I.; Sibbett, W.; Rafailov, E. U.; Erneux, T. (2015-06-29) - Journal article
    We examine the response of a pulse pumped quantum dot laser both experimentally and numerically. As the maximum of the pump pulse comes closer to the excited-state threshold, the output pulse shape becomes unstable and ...
  • Drug design for CNS diseases: polypharmacological profiling of compounds using cheminformatic, 3D-QSAR and virtual screening methodologies

  • Drugs trafficking and terrorism in Central Asia : an anatomy of relationships 

    Walker, Justine (University of St Andrews, 2009) - Thesis
    This thesis investigates to what extent there is a link between the illicit drugs trade and regional terrorist/insurgent organisation s in Central Asia. In particular , the research attempts to understand the dynamics ...
  • Drugs, danger, delusions (and Deleuzians?) : extreme film-philosophy journeys into and beyond the parallel body and mind. 

    Fleming, David H. (University of St Andrews, 2009-11-23) - Thesis
    Drugs, Danger, Delusions (and Deleuzians?) opens up a philosophical investigation into a series of ‘extreme’ mind and body films drawn from different historical contexts. Through two sections and four distinct chapters, ...
  • Dual gratings for enhanced light trapping in thin-film solar cells by a layer-transfer technique 

    Schuster, Christian S.; Kowalczewski, Piotr; Rezende Martins, Emiliano; Patrini, Maddalena; Scullion, Mark G.; Liscidini, Marco; Lewis, Liam; Reardon, Christopher; Andreani, Lucio C.; Krauss, Thomas F. (2013-05-06) - Journal article
    Thin film solar cells benefit significantly from the enhanced light trapping offered by photonic nanostructures. The thin film is typically patterned on one side only due to technological constraints. The ability to ...
  • Dual Random Utility Maximisation 

    Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco (University of St Andrews, 2016-03-23) - Working or discussion paper
    Dual Random Utility Maximisation (dRUM) is Random Utility Maximisation when utility depends on only two states. This class has many relevant behavioural interpretations and practical applications. We show that dRUM is ...
  • The dual relationship between God's creative purposes and the nature of sin and evil in Karl Barth's account of das Nichtige : in dialogue with the monist account of Alvin Plantinga 

    Torrance, Andrew (University of St Andrews, 2009) - Thesis
    John Hick argues for a two-fold typology of Christian theodicies, namely, those which offer monist accounts of good and evil and those which offer dualist accounts. Neither approach, he goes on to argue, is compatible ...
  • The duality of God, humanity and religion in William Golding's 'Darkness Visible' and John Steinbeck's 'East of Eden'
