  • Autonomic management of maintenance scheduling in Chord 

    Tauber, Markus; Kirby, Graham Njal Cameron; Dearle, Alan (University of St Andrews, 2010-06) - Report
    This paper experimentally evaluates the effects of applying autonomic management to the scheduling of maintenance operations in a deployed Chord network, for various membership churn and workload patterns. Two versions of ...
  • Autonomous agent behaviour modelled in PRISM -- a case study 

    Hoffmann, Ruth; Ireland, Murray; Miller, Alice; Norman, Gethin; Veres, Sandor (Springer, 2016) - Conference item
    Formal verification of agents representing robot behaviour is a growing area due to the demand that autonomous systems have to be proven safe. In this paper we present an abstract definition of autonomy which can be used ...
  • Autonomous fault detection in self-healing systems : comparing Hidden Markov Models and artificial neural networks 

    Schneider, Christopher; Barker, Adam David; Dobson, Simon Andrew (ACM, 2014-01-22) - Conference item
    Autonomously detecting and recovering from faults is one approach for reducing the operational complexity and costs associated with managing computing environments. We present a novel methodology for autonomously generating ...

  • Autonomy and purity in Kant's moral theory 

    Benson, Carolyn Jane (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-25) - Thesis
    Kant believed that the moral law is a law that the rational will legislates. This thesis examines this claim and its broader implications for Kant’s moral theory. Many are drawn to Kantian ethics because of its emphasis ...
  • Auxiliaries at war in the Middle East 

    Scheipers, Sibylle (2015-07-22) - Journal article
    If the West wants to contain or rout the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, it will have to rely on local allies in some way. The history of modern war suggests three ways in which such cooperation has previously been problematic.
  • Available actors, appropriate action : theodramatic formation and performance 

    Vander Lugt, Wesley (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-25) - Thesis
    Situated within the theatrical turn in Christian theology, this project explores theatre as a model for theological ethics, looking particularly at the dynamic interplay between formation as disponibility (availability) ...
  • Average distances on self-similar sets and higher order average distances of self-similar measures 

    Allen, D.; Edwards, H.; Harper, S.; Olsen, Lars Ole Ronnow (2016-12-29) - Journal article
    The purpose of this paper is twofold: (1) We study different notions of the average distance between two points of a self-similar subset of ℝ, and (2) we investigate the asymptotic behaviour of higher order average moments ...
  • Aversiveness of sound in marine mammals : psycho-physiological basis, behavioural correlates and potential applications 

    Götz, Thomas (University of St Andrews, 2008) - Thesis
    Understanding what psycho-physiological and behavioural factors influence aversiveness of sound in marine mammals is important for conservation and practical applications. The aim of this study was to determine predictors ...
  • Aviation and social exclusion 

    Sustainable Development Commission (Sustainable Development Commission, 2006-01) - Report
    The impact of forecast growth in aviation on UK passengers socio-economic groups is analysed.
  • Aviation and sustainable development 

    Sustainable Development Commission (Sustainable Development Commission, 2001-04-01) - Report
    This paper seeks to contribute some views on the big policy questions in the government's consultation exercise on the future of air transport, of which the biggest seems to us to be whether the general presumption in ...

    Russell, Deborah J. F.; Hastie, Gordon D.; Thompson, David; Janik, Vincent M.; Hammond, Philip S.; Scott-Hayward, Lindesay A. S.; Matthiopoulos, Jason; Jones, Esther L.; McConnell, Bernie J. (2016-12) - Journal article
    1. As part of global efforts to reduce dependence on carbon-based energy sources there has been a rapid increase in the installation of renewable energy devices. The installation and operation of these devices can result ...
  • Avoiding medication conflicts for patients with multimorbidities 

    Kovalov, Andrii; Bowles, Juliana Kuster Filipe (Springer, 2016) - Conference item
    Clinical pathways are care plans which detail essential steps in the care of patients with a specific clinical problem, usually a chronic disease. A pathway includes recommendations of medications prescribed at different ...

    Snell, Micah W (University of St Andrews, 2017-06-20) - Thesis
    This thesis considers The Winter’s Tale and The Tempest as William Shakespeare’s last great plays which foster re-enchantment for an age suffering spiritual disenchantment. Chapter 1 identifies a critical context for ...
  • The awareness of novelty for strangely familiar words : a laboratory analogue of the déjà vu experience 

    Urquhart, Josephine; O'Connor, Akira Robert (2014-11-11) - Journal article
    Déjà vu is a nebulous memory experience defined by a clash between evaluations of familiarity and novelty for the same stimulus. We sought to generate it in the laboratory by pairing a DRM recognition task, which generates ...
  • An axiomatic functionalist analysis of the phonology of Yulu
