  • Designing hypercyclic replicating networks 

    Wood, Evan A. (University of St Andrews, 2007-11-30) - Thesis
    In the last 20 years there has been a number of synthetic and natural product based molecular replicators published in the literature. The majority of these systems have focused on the minimal model with only a few examples ...

(2017-03-06) - Journal article
    Background : A critical problem in the clinical management of prostate cancer is that it is highly heterogeneous. Accurate prediction of individual cancer behaviour is therefore not achievable at the time of diagnosis ...
  • Destruction and redemption : the conduct of revealed religious violence in the contemporary era 

    Muir, Angus (University of St Andrews, 2001) - Thesis
    The final quarter of the twentieth century saw the emergence of a variety of security threats, perhaps the most pernicious and least understood of which has been the rise of religiously motivated violence and terrorism. ...

    We report CCD V and I time series photometry of the globular cluster NGC 6333 (M9). The technique of difference image analysis has been used, which enables photometric precision better than 0.05 mag for stars brighter than ...
  • A detailed chemical and petrological investigation of the rocks of the Shiant Isles 

    Murray, Ransom James (University of St Andrews, 1953) - Thesis
  • A detailed investigation of the properties of a Vlasov-Maxwell equilibrium for the force-free Harris sheet 

    Neukirch, Thomas; Wilson, F.; Harrison, M. G. (2009-12) - Journal article
    A detailed discussion is presented of the Vlasov-Maxwell equilibrium for the force-free Harris sheet recently found by Harrison and Neukirch [Phys. Rev. Lett. 102, 135003 (2009)]. The derivation of the distribution function ...
  • Detectability in audio-visual surveys of tropical rainforest birds : the influence of species, weather and habitat characteristics 

    Anderson, Alexander S.; Marques, Tiago A.; Shoo, Luke P.; Williams, Stephen E. (2015-06-25) - Journal article
    Indices of relative abundance do not control for variation in detectability, which can bias density estimates such that ecological processes are difficult to infer. Distance sampling methods can be used to correct for ...
  • Detecting a visual object in the presence of other objects : the flanker facilitation effect in contour integration 

    Gillespie, Christopher (University of St Andrews, 2015) - Thesis
    When an observer views a complex visual scene and tries to identify an object, his or her visual system must decide what regions of the visual field correspond to the object of interest and which do not. One aspect of ...
  • Detecting abnormal events on binary sensors in smart home environments 

    Ye, Juan; Stevenson, Graeme; Dobson, Simon (2016-12) - Journal article
    With a rising ageing population, smart home technologies have been demonstrated as a promising paradigm to enable technology-driven healthcare delivery. Smart home technologies, composed of advanced sensing, computing, and ...
  • Detecting adaptive evolution based on association with ecological gradients : orientation matters 

    Frichot, Eric; Schoville, Sean; Pierre, de Villemereuil; Gaggiotti, Oscar Eduardo; Francois, Olivier (2015-07) - Journal article
    Population genetic signatures of local adaptation are frequently investigated by identifying loci with allele frequencies that exhibit high correlation with ecological variables. One difficulty with this approach is that ...
  • Detecting cryptic indirect genetic effects 

    Bailey, Nathan William; Hoskins, Jessica L. (2014-07) - Journal article
    Indirect genetic effects (IGEs) occur when genes expressed in one individual alter the phenotype of an interacting partner. IGEs can dramatically affect the expression and evolution of social traits. However, the interacting ...

  • The detection and characterisation of extrasolar planets 

    Leigh, Christopher (University of St Andrews, 2004) - Thesis
    Since the discovery of 51 Pegasi b in 1995, continued observations have indirectly identified over 110 planetary objects. These Jupiter-mass objects cause their host star to "wobble" slightly about the common centre-of-mass ...
