  • ACT : a tool for performance driven evolution of distributed applications 

    Sage, Aled; Kirby, Graham Njal Cameron; Morrison, Ronald (2001) - Conference paper
    There are two main stages to evolving distributed applications in the manner desired by application builders: first deciding which changes are required and when, and second making the changes. Understanding the performance ...
  • Actin turnover is required for myosin-dependent mitochondrial movements in Arabidopsis root hairs 

    Zheng, Maozhong; Beck, Martina; Muller, Jens; Wang, Xiaohua; Wang, Qinli; Baluska, Frantisek; Logan, David; Samaj, Jozef; Lin, Jinxing (2009-06) - Journal article
    Background: Previous studies have shown that plant mitochondrial movements are myosin-based along actin filaments, which undergo continuous turnover by the exchange of actin subunits from existing filaments. Although earlier ...
  • Acting and understanding 

    Blomberg Stathopoulos, Alexander C. (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-23) - Thesis
    This thesis concerns the question of what it is for a subject to act. It answers this question in three steps. The first step is taken by arguing that any satisfactory answer must build on the idea that an action is something ...
