  • Bayesian sequential tests of the initial size of a linear pure death process 

    Goudie, I.B.J. (2015-05) - Journal article
    We provide a recursive algorithm for determining the sampling plans of invariant Bayesian sequential tests of the initial size of a linear pure death process of unknown rate. These tests compare favourably with the ...
  • A Bayesian space-time model for discrete spread processes on a lattice 

    Long, J.A.; Nelson, T.A.; Robertson, Colin; Nathoo, F.S. (2012-06-01) - Journal article
    In this article we present a Bayesian Markov model for investigating environmental spread processes. We formulate a model where the spread of a disease over a heterogeneous landscape through time is represented as a ...
  • Bayesian spatial NBDA for diffusion data with home-base coordinates 

    Nightingale, Glenna Faith; Laland, Kevin Neville; Hoppitt, William John Edward; Nightingale, Peter (2015-07-02) - Journal article
    Network-based diffusion analysis (NBDA) is a statistical method that allows the researcher to identify and quantify a social influence on the spread of behaviour through a population. Hitherto, NBDA analyses have not ...

  • Beaked whales 

    Madsen, Peter; Aguilar de Soto, Natacha; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Johnson, Mark (2014-08-18) - Journal article
  • Beaked whales respond to simulated and actual navy sonar 

    Tyack, Peter L.; Zimmer, Walter M. X.; Moretti, David; Southall, Brandon L.; Claridge, Diane E.; Durban, John W.; Clark, Christopher W.; D'Amico, Angela; DiMarzio, Nancy; Jarvis, Susan; McCarthy, Elena; Morrissey, Ronald; Ward, Jessica; Boyd, Ian L. (2011-03-14) - Journal article
    Beaked whales have mass stranded during some naval sonar exercises, but the cause is unknown. They are difficult to sight but can reliably be detected by listening for echolocation clicks produced during deep foraging ...
  • Beating the Stoner criterion using molecular interfaces 

    Al Ma'Mari, F.; Moorsom, T.; Teobaldi, G.; Deacon, W.; Prokscha, T.; Luetkens, H.; Lee, Stephen Leslie; Sterbinsky, G.E.; Arena, D.A.; Maclaren, D.A.; Flokstra, Machiel Geert; Ali, M.; Wheeler, M.C.; Burnell, G.; Hickey, B.J.; Cespedes, O. (2015-08-06) - Journal article
    Only three elements are ferromagnetic at room temperature: the transition metals iron, cobalt and nickel. The Stoner criterion explains why iron is ferromagnetic but manganese, for example, is not, even though both elements ...
  • Becoming a Lean University: the case of the University of St Andrews 

    Robinson, Mark; Yorkstone, Steve (Raabe Verlag, 2014) - Book item
    This article looks at how “lean” can be successfully introduced into a higher education setting by discussing what has become known as ‘The St Andrews Model’. The article demonstrates that “lean” can be adapted to suit the ...
  • Becoming Bertha : Virtual difference and repetition in postcolonial 'writing back', a Deleuzian reading of Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea 

    Burns, Lorna Margaret (2010-03) - Journal article
    Critical responses to Wide Sargasso Sea have seized upon Rhys's novel as an exemplary model of writing back. Looking beyond the actual repetitions which recall Brontë’s text, I explore Rhys's novel as an expression of ...
  • Becoming Lean pocket guide 

    Lean Team (University of St Andrews, 2015-01) - Book
    This pocket guide aims to give an overview of what Lean is on a conceptual level, explain how Lean fits into the Higher Education setting, detail how Lean is being applied in the University, and give ideas about how Lean ...
  • Becoming similar : knowledge, sociality and the aesthetics of relatedness amongst the Nivacle of the Paraguayan Chaco 

    Grant, Suzanne (2006) - Thesis
    This thesis is an exploration of the concepts of knowledge, sociality and relatedness amongst the Nivacle indigenous people of the Paraguayan Chaco, concentrating particularly on the community of Jotoicha in the Mennonite ...
  • Becoming sovereign in post-Soviet Central Asia : 'discursive encounters' between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan 

    Suyarkulova, Mohira (University of St Andrews, 2011-11) - Thesis
    In 1991 republics of Soviet Central Asia were reluctantly ‘launched’ into independence. The central puzzle of this dissertation is: “How has sovereign statehood been ‘constructed’ in the post-independence period in the ...

  • Before the Colditz myth : telling POW stories in postwar British cinema 

    Plain, Gill (2014-08) - Journal article
    Before the concretization of the ‘Colditz Myth’ in the mid-1950s, British cinema’s engagement with the POW narrative took unexpected generic forms. The Captive Heart (1946) and The Wooden Horse (1950) draw on the narrative ...
