  • Ensuring each student reaches their potential : (2) transferability issues 

    Sibbett, Lorna Rosemary (2010-11-15) - Conference paper
    Isolation of knowledge within disciplines, or for students, within the confines of single taught modules, diminishes the learner’s richness of understanding. Whilst flexible degree programmes are attractive to prospective ...
  • Entanglement concentration with quantum nondemolition Hamiltonians 

    Tatham, Richard; Korolkova, Natalia (2014-01-09) - Journal article
    We devise and examine two procrustean entanglement concentration schemes using quantum nondemolition (QND) interaction Hamiltonians in the continuous variable regime, applicable for light, for atomic ensembles or in a ...
  • Entangling Remote Nuclear Spins Linked by a Chromophore

    Molecular nanostructures may constitute the fabric of future quantum technologies, if their degrees of freedom can be fully harnessed. Ideally one might use nuclear spins as low-decoherence qubits and optical excitations ...
  • Entangling the whole by beam splitting a part 

    Croal, Callum; Peuntinger, Christian; Chille, Vanessa; Marquardt, Christoph; Leuchs, Gerd; Korolkova, Natalia; Mišta Jr., Ladislav (2015-11-04) - Journal article
    A beam splitter is a basic linear optical element appearing in many optics experiments and is frequently used as a continuous-variable entangler transforming a pair of input modes from a separable Gaussian state into an ...
  • Enter the dragon : the emerging Chinese approach to peacebuilding in Liberia 

    Kuo, Steven Chiun-Yi (University of St Andrews, 2013) - Thesis
    Critics of the liberal peace point out that the imposition of liberal democratic structures of governance through United Nations Peacekeeping Operations has not led to a sustainable peace being built. In reply, supporters ...
  • Entering the black hole: the Taliban, terrorism, and organised crime 

    Phillips, Matthew D.; Kamen, Emily A. (Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence, University of St Andrews, 2014-09-01) - Journal article
    Cooperation and imitation among crime and terror groups in recent years has given rise to a crime-terror nexus. A linear conceptualisation of a crime-terror spectrum, suggests that complete convergence of crime and terror ...
  • Environment and health in Central Asia: quantifying the determinants of child survival 

    Franz, Jennifer Sue (University of St Andrews, 2007-06-20) - Thesis
    The impact of environmental degradation on well-being is largely ignored in terms of economic costs of development. Due in large part to measurement difficulties, the environment in the daily welfare of the world's poorest ...
  • Environmental aspects of sustainability : SMEs and the role of the accountant 

    Spence, Laura J.; Agyemang, Gloria; Rinaldi, Leonardo (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, 2012-07-23) - Report
    This report describes the potential for further widening SMP advice provision to include the topic of environmental sustainability. Sustainability and CSR have been identified as emergent key issues for the accountancy ...
  • Environmental Audit Committee report : preparations for the Johannesburg Summit 

    Sustainable Development Commission (Sustainable Development Commission, 2002-03-01) - Report
    This memorandum provides both an overview of recent UK performance on sustainable development, and highlights some particular conclusions about current UK performance, which we have drawn from our work to date.
  • Environmental complexity influences association network structure and network-based diffusion of foraging information in fish shoals 

    Webster, Michael Munro; Atton, Nicola; Hoppitt, William John Edward; Laland, Kevin Neville (2013-02) - Journal article
    Socially transmitted information can significantly affect the ways in which animals interact with their environments. We used network-based diffusion analysis, a novel and powerful tool for exploring information transmission, ...
  • Environmental constraints on the foraging behaviour, spatial usage and population sizes of albatrosses 

    Wakefield, Ewan D. (University of St Andrews, 2009) - Thesis
    Satellite-tracking of wide-ranging, apex marine predators, combined with remote-sensing, can be used to test ecological hypotheses and to estimate spatial abundance. I used this approach to quantify the habitat usage of ...
  • Environmental effects in quantum chemistry : QM/MM studies of structures, NMR properties and reactivities in extended systems 

    Bjornsson, Ragnar (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - Thesis
    Computational modelling of chemical systems is most easily carried out in the vacuum for single molecules. Accounting for environmental effects accurately in quantum chemical calculations, however, is often necessary for ...
  • Environmental timing and control of reproduction in the powan of Loch Lomond 'Coregonus lavaretus (L) (Teleostei)' in relation to its pineal organ 

    O'Connell, William David (University of St Andrews, 1985) - Thesis
    The reproductive cycle of Coregonus lavaretus (L. ) in Loch Lomond was investigated by monthly sampling. The stages of the cycle occurred at the same time each year and were precisely timed. The environment followed ...
  • The environments in which stars and circumstellar discs form 

    Poulton, Christopher John (University of St Andrews, 2008) - Thesis
    In this thesis, images of a debris disc are used to examine the evidence for the presence of a Neptune-like planet around ε Eridani and detections of protoplanetary discs are used to investigate the evidence for star and ...
  • EnzML : multi-label prediction of enzyme classes using InterPro signatures 

    De Ferrari, Luna; Aitken, Stuart; van Hemert, Jano; Goryanin, Igor (2012-04) - Journal article
    Background: Manual annotation of enzymatic functions cannot keep up with automatic genome sequencing. In this work we explore the capacity of InterPro sequence signatures to automatically predict enzymatic function. Results: ...
