  • Auditory same/different concept learning and generalization in black-capped chickadees (Poecile atricapillus) 

    Hoeschele, Marisa; Cook, Robert; Guillette, Lauren; Hahn, Allison; Sturdy, Christopher (2012-10-15) - Journal article
    Abstract concept learning was thought to be uniquely human, but has since been observed in many other species. Discriminating same from different is one abstract relation that has been studied frequently. In the current ...

  • Augustine's use of medical imagery in his polemical theology 

    Beddoe, Paul Victor (University of St Andrews, 1998) - Thesis
    In his three major polemical campaigns, that is, against the Manichees, Donatists and Pelagians, Augustine used imagery derived from medicine and was, in tum influenced by the language he used. While much of the language ...
  • Austen's literary alembic : Sanditon, medicine, and the science of the novel 

    Tate, Gregory Paul (2016-04-01) - Journal article
    This essay examines the representation of science in Jane Austen’s unfinished novel Sanditon. It argues that this text, written in the months before Austen’s death in 1817, points to a development in her understanding of ...

    DesBrisay, Gordon Russell (University of St Andrews, 1989) - Thesis
    This study is concerned with aspects of urban society in the Scottish city of Aberdeen in the second half of the seventeenth century. The principal aim is to examine the multi-faceted nature and workings of civic ...
  • Authors and characters in search of the truth : a comparative study of Pirandello's 'Right you are (if you think so!)' and Pinter's 'The collection' 

    Nardiello, Irene (University of St Andrews, 1996) - Thesis
    According to some distinguished scholars, Pinter’s ‘The Collection’ and Pirandello’s ‘Right You Are (If You Think So!)’ display some similarities in the themes treated, mainly regarding the topic of the unverifiability of ...
  • Automated chemical crystallography 

    Fuller, Amy; Scott-Hayward, Lindesay Alexandra Sarah; Li, Yang; Buehl, Michael; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Woollins, J Derek (2010-04-28) - Journal article
    The first fully automated small-molecule robotic X-ray diffractometer is described. After demonstrating the utility of the instrument using multiple samples of ammonium bitartrate, we investigated the conformational chirality ...
  • Automated static symmetry breaking in constraint satisfaction problems 

    Grayland, Andrews (University of St Andrews, 2011) - Thesis
    Variable symmetries in constraint satisfaction problems can be broken by adding lexicographic ordering constraints. Existing general methods of generating such sets of ordering constraints can produce a huge number of ...
  • Automatic alignment of hieroglyphs and transliteration 

    Nederhof, Mark Jan (Gorgias Press, 2009-02) - Book item
    Automatic alignment has important applications in philology, facilitating study of texts on the basis of electronic resources produced by different scholars. A simple technique is presented to realise such alignment for ...
  • Automatic creation of interlinear text for philological purposes 

    Nederhof, Mark Jan (2009) - Journal article
    Interlinear text presents a collection of interpretations of a manuscript. Whereas such a form is often compiled by a single author or a single team of scholars, we here consider automatic creation of interlinear text out ...
  • Automatic knowledge extraction from EHRs 

    Vasiljeva, Ieva; Arandelovic, Ognjen (AAAI Press, 2016-07-10) - Conference item
    Increasing efforts in the collection, standardization, and maintenance of large scale longitudinal elec- tronic health care records (EHRs) across the world provide a promising source of real world medical data with the ...
  • Automatic presentations and semigroup constructions 

    Cain, Alan J.; Oliver, Graham; Ruskuc, Nik; Thomas, Richard M. (2010-08) - Journal article
    An automatic presentation for a relational structure is, informally, an abstract representation of the elements of that structure by means of a regular language such that the relations can all be recognized by finite ...
  • Automatic presentations for semigroups 

    Cain, Alan James; Oliver, Graham; Ruskuc, Nik; Thomas, Richard M. (2009-11) - Journal article
    This paper applies the concept of FA-presentable structures to semigroups. We give a complete classification of the finitely generated FA-presentable cancellative semigroups: namely, a finitely generated cancellative ...
  • Automating fault tolerance in high-performance computational biological jobs using multi-agent approaches 

    Varghese, Blesson; McKee, Gerard; Alexandrov, Vassil (2014-05-01) - Journal article
    Background: Large-scale biological jobs on high-performance computing systems require manual intervention if one or more computing cores on which they execute fail. This places not only a cost on the maintenance of the ...
  • Automobility and injury inequality : road safety for a diverse society 

    Pringle, Susan Mary (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-25) - Thesis
    Most knowledge of road accidents patterns derives from datasets. Heightened risk of involvement in road accidents can be shown to be associated with, inter alia, membership of minority ethnic groups and poverty. In addition, ...
  • Automorphism groups of countable algebraically closed graphs and endomorphisms of the random graph 

    Dolinka, Igor; Gray, Robert Duncan; McPhee, Jillian Dawn; Mitchell, James David; Quick, Martyn (2016-05) - Journal article
    We establish links between countable algebraically closed graphs and the endomorphisms of the countable universal graph R. As a consequence we show that, for any countable graph Γ, there are uncountably many maximal subgroups ...
