  • Acceleration-as-a-Service : exploiting virtualised GPUs for a financial application 

    Varghese, Blesson; Prades, Javier; Reaño, Carlos; Silla, Federico (IEEE Computer Society, 2015-09-01) - Conference item
    How can GPU acceleration be obtained as a service in a cluster? This question has become increasingly significant due to the inefficiency of installing GPUs on all nodes of a cluster. The research reported in this paper ...

  • Accommodating availability bias on line transect surveys using hidden Markov models. 

    Borchers, David L.; Samara, Filipa I. P. (CREEM, University of St Andrews, 2007) - Report

  • An account of a valuable phenomenon found primarily in art, after Collingwood 

    McGuiggan, James Camien (University of St Andrews, 2011-11) - Thesis
    This dissertation enquires into the nature and value of a phenomenon which is typically found in art. Chapter 1 attempts to get clear on what phenomenon is being discussed by considering various thinkers' attempts to ...
  • Accountability for amnesty 

    O'Connor, Simon (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-22) - Thesis
    Amnesties are evidently contentious issues. The issue of immunity and impunity is significant in the peace versus justice debate. What this thesis attempts is to explain the grant of amnesty as a legally permissible exception ...
  • Accounting for carbon 

    Lovell, Heather; Sales de Aguiar, Thereza; Bebbington, Jan; Larrinaga-Gonzalez, Carlos; International Emissions Trading Association (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, 2010-11-10) - Report
    This report reveals how large emitters in the European Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) are accounting for emission allowances. The diversity of emission-allowance accounting practices being used in Europe shows carbon ...
  • Accretion disc time lag distributions : applying CREAM to simulated AGN light curves 

    Starkey, David; Horne, Keith; Villforth, C. (2016-02-21) - Journal article
    Active galactic nuclei (AGN) vary in their brightness across all wavelengths. Moreover, longer wavelength ultraviolet-optical continuum light curves appear to be delayed with respect to shorter wavelength light curves. A ...
  • Accretion discs as regulators of stellar angular momentum evolution in the ONC and Taurus-Auriga 

    Davies, Claire; Gregory, Scott; Greaves, Jane Sophia (2014-10-21) - Journal article
    In light of recent substantial updates to spectral type estimations and newly established intrinsic colours, effective temperatures, and bolometric corrections for pre-main sequence (PMS) stars, we re-address the theory ...
  • The accretion dynamics of EX Lupi in quiescence : the star, the spot, and the accretion column 

    Sicilia-Aguilar, Aurora; Fang, Min; Roccatagliata, Veronica; Collier Cameron, Andrew; Kóspál, Ágnes; Henning, Thomas; Ábrahám, Peter; Sipos, Nikoletta (2015-08-06) - Journal article
    Context. EX Lupi is a young, accreting M0 star and the prototype of EXor variable stars. Its spectrum is very rich in emission lines, including many metallic lines with narrow and broad components. The presence of a close ...
  • Acculturation and bilingualism in Guambía (Colombia) 

    Long, Violet (University of St Andrews, 1980) - Thesis
    The objective of this study is to trace the relationship between oveit and covert acculturation and bilingualism in the Colombian Indian community of Guambia. The first section describes the ten indicators ...
  • Accuracy of circulating adiponectin for predicting gestational diabetes : a systematic review and meta-analysis 

    Iliodromiti, S; Sassarini, J; Kelsey, Tom; Lindsay, R; Sattar, N; Nelson, S (2016-04) - Journal article
    Aims/hypothesis Universal screening for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) has not been implemented, and this has had substantial clinical implications. Biomarker-directed targeted screening might be feasible. We sought ...
  • Accurate extraction of nanometer distances in multimers by pulse EPR 

    Valera, Silvia; Ackermann, Katrin; Pliotas, Christos; Huang, Hexian; Naismith, James Henderson; Bode, Bela Ernest (2016-03-24) - Journal article
    Pulse electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) is gaining increasing importance in structural biology. The PELDOR (pulsed electron-electron double resonance) method allows extracting distance information on the nanometer ...
  • Acenaphtho[5,6-cd]-1,2-dichalcogenoles and their platinum complexes 

    Diamond, Louise; Knight, Fergus Ross; Cordes, David Bradford; Ward, Andrew Christopher Clifford; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Woollins, J Derek (2015-01-08) - Journal article
    A related series of bis(phosphine) platinum complexes 1–5 and 6–8 bearing dichalcogenate acenaphthylene ligands have been synthesised. The chalcogen–chalcogen bonds in the parent acenaphtho[5,6-cd]-1,2-dichalcogenoles ...
