D.; Petit, P.; Rosén, L.; Waite, I. A. (2015-11-11) - Journal article
    Spectropolarimetric observations have been used to map stellar magnetic fields, many of which display strong bands of azimuthal fields that are toroidal. A number of explanations have been proposed to explain how such ...
  • Energy dependence of radioluminescence spectra from strontium titanate 

    Wang, Y.; Zhao, Y.; Zhang, Z.; Zhao, C.; Wu, X.; Finch, A.A.; Townsend, P.D. (2015-10) - Journal article
    Abstract X-ray excited luminescence spectra of strontium titanate are reported over the temperature range from 20-300 K. The range includes several crystalline phases, each with different emission spectra. The signals are ...
  • Energy dissipation and resolution of steep gradients in one-dimensional Burgers flows 

    Tran, Chuong Van; Dritschel, David Gerard (2010-03) - Journal article
    Traveling-wave solutions of the inviscid Burgers equation having smooth initial wave profiles of suitable shapes are known to develop shocks (infinite gradients) in finite times. Such singular solutions are characterized ...
  • Energy from waste potential in Scotland : quantifying the contribution energy from waste could make to Scotland’s energy needs 

    Sustainable Development Commission Scotland (Sustainable Development Commission, 2010-04) - Report
    Report to the Scottish Government quantifying the contribution energy from waste could make to Scotland’s energy needs.
