  • The Assouad dimensions of projections of planar sets 

    Fraser, Jonathan M.; Orponen, Tuomas (2017-02) - Journal article
    We consider the Assouad dimensions of orthogonal projections of planar sets onto lines. Our investigation covers both general and self-similar sets. For general sets, the main result is the following: if a set in the plane ...
  • Assouad type dimensions and homogeneity of fractals 

    Fraser, Jonathan M. (2014-12) - Journal article

  • The astronomy of Andean myth : the history of a cosmology 

    Sullivan, William F. (University of St Andrews, 1986) - Thesis
    The paper aims to show that Andean myth, on one level, represents a technical language recording astronomical observations of precession and, at the same time, an historical record of simultaneous social and celestial ...

    Molecular fingerprinting of conserved germline and somatic ¨stemness¨ markers in different taxa have been key in defining the mechanism of germline specification ("preformation" or "epigenesis"), as well as expression ...
  • Asymmetric dominance, deferral and status quo bias in a behavioral model of choice 

    Gerasimou, Georgios (2016-02) - Journal article
    This paper proposes and axiomatically characterizes a model of choice that builds on the criterion of partial dominance and allows for two types of avoidant behavior: *choice deferral* and *status quo bias*. These phenomena ...
  • Asymmetric hydroformylation : a powerful tool for the synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates 

    Noonan, Gary M. (University of St Andrews, 2011-06-22) - Thesis
    The hydroformylation of unfunctionalised olefins (such as prop-1-ene and oct-1-ene) is an extremely valuable process and is practised on a massive scale industrially in the synthesis of commodity chemicals. In fact, it ...
