  • Accelerated degradation of MOFs under flue gas conditions 

    Mangano, Enzo; Kahr, Juergen; Wright, Paul; Brandani, Stefano (2016-10-01) - Journal article
    The zero length column (ZLC) technique is used to investigate the stability of Mg- and Ni-CPO-27 metal organic framework (MOF) crystals to the presence of water and humid flue gas. The design of the ZLC enables the stability ...
  • Acceleration-as-a-Service : exploiting virtualised GPUs for a financial application 

    Varghese, Blesson; Prades, Javier; Reaño, Carlos; Silla, Federico (IEEE Computer Society, 2015-09-01) - Conference item
    How can GPU acceleration be obtained as a service in a cluster? This question has become increasingly significant due to the inefficiency of installing GPUs on all nodes of a cluster. The research reported in this paper ...
  • Access to Higher Education for Scottish rural communities : an exploratory analysis 

    Lasselle, Laurence; Kirby, Graham Njal Cameron; Macpherson, Robert Allan (University of St Andrews, 2015-08-28) - Report
    Traditional socio-economic factors cannot solely explain why state secondary schools located in Scottish rural communities tend to have (i) greater variation of progressions to Higher Education (HE) year on year than other ...
  • Accessory mineral growth histories : implications for granitoid petrogenesis 

    Paterson, Bruce Andrew (University of St Andrews, 1990) - Thesis
    Accessory minerals in granitoids are major repositories of several geochemically-important trace elements and isotopes and in order to quantify the influence that they have over granitoid petrogenesis it is necessary to ...
  • Accommodating availability bias on line transect surveys using hidden Markov models. 

    Borchers, David L.; Samara, Filipa I. P. (CREEM, University of St Andrews, 2007) - Report
    Maximum likelihood methods are developed which accommodate intermittent animal availability of animals on line transect surveys. Existing 'availability bias' correction methods are shown to be inadequate in general. The ...
  • An account of a valuable phenomenon found primarily in art, after Collingwood 

    McGuiggan, James Camien (University of St Andrews, 2011-11) - Thesis
    This dissertation enquires into the nature and value of a phenomenon which is typically found in art. Chapter 1 attempts to get clear on what phenomenon is being discussed by considering various thinkers' attempts to ...
  • Accountability for amnesty 

    O'Connor, Simon (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-22) - Thesis
    Amnesties are evidently contentious issues. The issue of immunity and impunity is significant in the peace versus justice debate. What this thesis attempts is to explain the grant of amnesty as a legally permissible exception ...
  • Accountability for quality of care : monitoring all aspects of quality across a framework adapted for action 

    Hulton, Louise; Matthews, Zoe; Bandali, Sarah; Izge, Abubakar; Daroda, Ramatu; Stones, William (2016-01) - Journal article
    Quality of care is essential to maternal and newborn survival. The multidimensional nature of quality of care means that frameworks are useful for capturing it. The present paper proposes an adaptation to a widely used ...
  • Accounting for carbon 

    Lovell, Heather; Sales de Aguiar, Thereza; Bebbington, Jan; Larrinaga-Gonzalez, Carlos; International Emissions Trading Association (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, 2010-11-10) - Report
    This report reveals how large emitters in the European Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) are accounting for emission allowances. The diversity of emission-allowance accounting practices being used in Europe shows carbon ...
  • Accounting for taste : the poetics of food and flavour in Virginia Woolf’s novels 

    De Santa, Jessica E. (University of St Andrews, 2015-11) - Thesis
    This thesis argues that tasting appears as an act of creative empathy and of knowledge acquisition in Virginia Woolf’s writing. First contextualising my discussion within Woolf’s own reading of the aesthetic and literary ...
  • Accretion disc time lag distributions : applying CREAM to simulated AGN light curves 

    Starkey, David; Horne, Keith; Villforth, C. (2016-02-21) - Journal article
    Active galactic nuclei (AGN) vary in their brightness across all wavelengths. Moreover, longer wavelength ultraviolet-optical continuum light curves appear to be delayed with respect to shorter wavelength light curves. A ...
  • Accretion discs as regulators of stellar angular momentum evolution in the ONC and Taurus-Auriga 

    Davies, Claire; Gregory, Scott; Greaves, Jane Sophia (2014-10-21) - Journal article
    In light of recent substantial updates to spectral type estimations and newly established intrinsic colours, effective temperatures, and bolometric corrections for pre-main sequence (PMS) stars, we re-address the theory ...
  • The accretion dynamics of EX Lupi in quiescence : the star, the spot, and the accretion column 

    Sicilia-Aguilar, Aurora; Fang, Min; Roccatagliata, Veronica; Collier Cameron, Andrew; Kóspál, Ágnes; Henning, Thomas; Ábrahám, Peter; Sipos, Nikoletta (2015-08-06) - Journal article
    Context. EX Lupi is a young, accreting M0 star and the prototype of EXor variable stars. Its spectrum is very rich in emission lines, including many metallic lines with narrow and broad components. The presence of a close ...
  • Acculturation and bilingualism in Guambía (Colombia)
