    Perovskite electrodes have been considered as an alternative to Ni-YSZ cermet-based anodes as they afford better tolerance towards coking and impurities and due to redox stability can allow very high levels of fuel ...
  • Demonstration of hyper-programming in Java 

    Zirintsis, E; Kirby, Graham Njal Cameron; Morrison, Ronald (Morgan Kaufmann, 1999) - Conference item
    We demonstrate the use of a hyper-programming system to build persistent Java applications in PJama, an orthogonally persistent version of Java. This allows program representations to contain type-safe links to persistent ...

  • The density and diversity of birds on farmland in West Africa 

    Hulme, Mark F. (University of St Andrews, 2007-11-30) - Thesis
    The area of land farmed in Africa is predicted to double by the year 2050 yet very few African studies have investigated the impact of different farming intensities and regimes on bird communities. This study examined avian ...
  • Density and temperature characterization of long-scale length, near-critical density controlled plasma produced from ultra-low density plastic foam

    The ability to produce long-scale length (i.e. millimeter scale-length), homogeneous plasmas is of interest in studying a wide range of fundamental plasma processes. We present here a validated experimental platform to ...
  • Density estimation and time trend analysis of large herbivores in Nagarhole, India 

    Gangadharan, Aditya (2005) - Thesis
    Density estimates for six large herbivore species were obtained through analysis of line transect data from Nagarhole National Park, south-western India, collected between 1989 and 2000. These species were Chital (Axis ...
  • Density estimation implications of increasing ambient noise on beaked whale click detection and classification 

    Marques, Tiago A.; Ward, Jessica; Jarvis, Susan; Moretti, David; Morrissey, Ronald; DiMarzio, Nancy; Thomas, Len (University of St Andrews, 2010) - Report
    Acoustic based density estimates are being increasingly used. Usually density estimation methods require one to evaluate the effective survey area of the acoustic sensors, or equivalently estimate the mean detection probability ...
  • Density functional study of interactions between fluorinated cyclohexanes and arenes 

    Cormanich, Rodrigo A.; Durie, Alastair; Bjornsson, Ragnar; Rittner, Roberto; O'Hagan, David; Buehl, Michael (2014-06) - Journal article
    1H-NMR Chemical shifts of all-syn-1,2,4,5-tetrafluorocyclohexane (1), all-syn-1,2,3,4-tetrafluorocyclohexane (2), and their complexes with benzene are calculated at the BHandH/6-311+G(2d,p) level. The observed shielding ...
  • Density of optical degrees of freedom : intensity, linear and angular momentum 

    Mazilu, Michael (SPIE, 2014-02-25) - Conference item
    For any optical system, optical eigenmodes describe solutions of Maxwells equations that are orthogonal to each other. In their simplest free space form, these modes correspond, for example, to Bessel, Laguerre-Gaussian ...
  • Deontic Reasoning Across Contexts 

    Snedegar, Justin (Springer, 2014) - Book item
    Contrastivism about `ought' holds that `ought' claims are relativized, at least implicitly, to sets of mutually exclusive but not necessarily jointly exhaustive alternatives. This kind of theory can solve puzzles that face ...
