  • 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 ...
  • Australia : a land of missed opportunities? 

    Greasley, David; McLaughlin, Eoin; Hanley, Nick; Oxley, Les (2017-05-02) - Journal article
    Comprehensive Investment (CI) may provide an indicator of future changes in a country’s per capita consumption. We explore the utility of the CI indicator for Australia by constructing CI data since 1861 and by estimating ...

    Garcia, Edwin; Hayden, Annette; Birts, Charles; Britton, Edward; Cowie, Andrew; Pickard, Karen; Mellone, Massimiliano; Choh, Clarisa; Derouet, Mathieu; Duriez, Patrick; Noble, Fergus; White, Michael J.; Primrose, John N.; Strefford, Jonathan C.; Rose-Zerilli, Matthew; Thomas, Gareth J.; Ang, Yeng; Sharrocks, Andrew D.; Fitzgerald, Rebecca C.; Underwood, Timothy J.; Lynch, Andy G. (2016-09-07) - Journal article

  • Authority and discipline in Aberdeen, 1650-1700 

    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 ...
  • Autobiographical memory specificity in response to verbal and pictorial cues in clinical depression 

    Ridout, Nathan; Dritschel, Barbara; Matthews, Keith; O'Carroll, Ronan (2016-06-01) - Journal article
    Background Depressed individuals have been consistently shown to exhibit problems in accessing specific memories of events from their past and instead tend to retrieve categorical summaries of events. The majority of studies ...
  • 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 production of high rep rate foam targets 

    Hall, F.; Spindloe, C.; Haddock, D.; Tolley, M.; Nazarov, W. (2016-05-24) - Journal article
    Manufacturing low density targets in the numbers needed for high rep rate experiments is highly challenging. This report summarises advances from manual production to semiautomated and the improvements that follow both in ...
  • 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 generation of generalised regular factorial designs 

    Kobilinsky, André; Monod, Hervé; Bailey, R. A. (2017-09) - Journal article
    The R package planor enables the user to search for, and construct, factorial designs satisfying given conditions. The user specifies the factors and their numbers of levels, the factorial terms which are assumed to be ...
  • Automatic knowledge extraction from EHRs 

    Vasiljeva, Ieva; Arandelovic, Ognjen (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 ...
  • Automatically generating streamlined constraint models with ESSENCE and CONJURE 

    Wetter, James; Akgun, Ozgur; Miguel, Ian (Springer, 2015-08-13) - Conference item
    Streamlined constraint reasoning is the addition of uninferred constraints to a constraint model to reduce the search space, while retaining at least one solution. Previously, effective streamlined models have been constructed ...
  • Automatically improving SAT encoding of constraint problems through common subexpression elimination in Savile Row 

    Nightingale, Peter; Spracklen, Patrick; Miguel, Ian James (Springer, 2015-10) - Conference item
    The formulation of a Propositional Satisfiability (SAT) problem instance is vital to efficient solving. This has motivated research on preprocessing, and inprocessing techniques where reformulation of a SAT instance is ...
  • Automatically proving equivalence by type-safe reflection 

    Slama, Franck; Brady, Edwin Charles (Springer, 2017) - Conference item
    One difficulty with reasoning and programming with dependent types is that proof obligations arise naturally once programs become even moderately sized. For example, implementing an adder for binary numbers indexed over ...
