  • Dislocation and relocation: clarsach and live electronics 

    MacDonald, Alistair (The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, 2014-12-16) - Journal article
    In writing The Salutation (clarsach and electroacoustic sound) for harpist Catriona McKay in 2002, I wanted to create something which celebrated the history and music of the instrument itself, using studio technology to ...
  • Dismissivism in metaphysics : debates about what there is and debates about what grounds what 

    Porro, Laura Cecilia (University of St Andrews, 2013-11-30) - Thesis
    In this thesis I focus on dismissivism in metaphysics. Some philosophers argue that at least some metaphysical disputes are not substantial, and as a consequence should be dismissed. In this work I restrict my attention ...
  • Disorder driven structural and dielectric properties of silicon substituted strontium titanate 

    Dugu, Sita; Pavunny, Shojan P.; Sharma, Yogesh; Scott, James F.; Katiyar, Ram S. (2015-07-17) - Journal article

  • Disordered driven coupled cavity arrays : Non-equilibrium stochastic mean-field theory 

    Kulaitis, Gytis; Kruger, Frank; Nissen, Felix; Keeling, Jonathan Mark James (2013-01-29) - Journal article
    We study the interplay of disorder with pumping and decay in coupled qubit-cavity arrays, the Jaynes-Cummings-Hubbard model. We find that relatively weak disorder can wash out the bistability present in the clean pumped ...
  • Dispersal and population structure at different spatial scales in the subterranean rodent Ctenomys australis 

    Mora, Matias S.; Mapelli, Fernando J.; Gaggiotti, Oscar E.; Kittlein, Marcelo J.; Lessa, Enrique P. (2010-01-28) - Journal article
    Background: The population genetic structure of subterranean rodent species is strongly affected by demographic (e.g. rates of dispersal and social structure) and stochastic factors (e.g. random genetic drift among ...
  • Dispersion studies on multimode polymer spiral waveguides for board-level optical interconnects 

    Chen, J.; Bamiedakis, N.; Edwards, Tom; Brown, C Tom A; Penty, R.V.; White, I.H. (IEEE, 2015-05-29) - Conference item
    Dispersion studies are conducted on 1m long multimode polymer spiral waveguides with different refractive index profiles. Bandwidth-length products >40GHz×m are obtained from such waveguides under a 50/125 μm MMF, indicating ...
  • The displaced I : a poetics of exile in Spanish autobiographical writing by women 

    Cadman, Jennifer (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-27) - Thesis
    Literary responses to Republican exile are diverse and autobiographical works have emerged as a significant modality of this exilic literature. Utilising poetics as a mode of inquiry, this thesis aims to examine some of ...
  • Displacement of the canonical single-stranded DNA-binding protein in the Thermoproteales 

    Paytubi, Sonia; McMahon, Stephen; Graham, Shirley; Liu, Huanting; Botting, Catherine Helen; Makarova, Kira S.; Kroonin, Eugene V.; Naismith, Jim; White, Malcolm F (2012-02-14) - Journal article
    Single-stranded DNA binding proteins (SSBs) based on the OB-fold are considered ubiquitous in nature and play a central role in many DNA transactions including replication, recombination and repair. We demonstrate that the ...
