  • The race for Muslim hearts and minds : a social movement analysis of the U.S. war on terror and popular support in the Muslim world 

    Dumas, James M. (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-22) - Thesis
    According to conventional wisdom winning hearts and minds is one of the most important goals for defeating terrorism. However, despite repeated claims about U.S. efforts to build popular support as part of the war on terror ...
  • Radiation pressure on a moving body : beyond the Doppler effect 

    Horsley, S. A. R.; Artoni, M.; La Rocca, G. C. (2012-11) - Journal article
    The dependence of macroscopic radiation pressure on the velocity of the object being pushed is commonly attributed to the Doppler effect. This need not be the case, and here we highlight velocity-dependent radiation pressure ...

    Thi, W.F.; Kamp, I.; Woitke, P.; Van Der Plas, G.; Bertelsen, R.; Wiesenfeld, L. (2013-03) - Journal article
    Context. The carbon monoxide (CO) ro-vibrational emission from discs around Herbig Ae stars and T Tauri stars with strong ultraviolet emissions suggests that fluorescence pumping from the ground X1Σ+ to the electronic A1Π ...
  • Radicals and reactionaries : the polarisation of community and government in the name of public safety and security 

    Weeks, Douglas M. (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-25) - Thesis
    The contemporary threat of terrorism has changed the ways in which government and the public view the world. Unlike the existential threat from nation states in previous centuries, today, government and the public spend ...
  • RAFDA : A policy-aware middleware supporting the flexible separation of application logic from distribution 

    Walker, Scott; Dearle, Alan; Norcross, Stuart; Kirby, Graham; McCarthy, Andrew (University of St Andrews, 2006) - Report
    Middleware technologies often limit the way in which object classes may be used in distributed applications due to the fixed distribution policies that they impose. These policies permeate applications developed using ...
  • RAFDA : Middleware supporting the separation of application logic from distribution policy 

    Dearle, Alan; Walker, Scott; Norcross, Stuart; Kirby, Graham; McCarthy, Andrew (University of St Andrews, 2005) - Report
    Middleware technologies often limit the way in which object classes may be used in distributed applications due to the fixed distribution policies imposed by the Middleware system. These policies permeate the applications ...
  • The Rainbow Family : an ethnography of spiritual postmodernism 

    Berger, Adam (University of St Andrews, 2006) - Thesis
    The Rainbow Family of Living Light is an intentional society devoted to achieving world peace through spiritual healing. A loose association of spiritual seekers that explicitly rejects all forms of leadership and imposed ...
  • Raman scattering with strongly coupled vibron-polaritons 

    Strashko, Artem; Keeling, Jonathan (2016-08) - Journal article
    Strong coupling between cavity photons and molecular vibrations can lead to the formation of vibron-polaritons. In a recent experiment with PVAc molecules in a metal-metal microcavity [A.Shalabney et al., Ang.Chem.Int.Ed. ...
  • Ramifications of optical pumping on the interpretation of time-resolved photoemission experiments on graphene 

    Ulstrup, Søren; Johannsen, Jens Christian; Cilento, Federico; Crepaldi, Alberto; Miwa, Jill A.; Zacchigna, Michele; Cacho, Cephise; Chapman, Richard T.; Springate, Emma; Fromm, Felix; Raidel, Christian; Seyller, Thomas; King, Phil D.C.; Parmigiani, Fulvio; Grioni, Marco; Hofmann, Philip (2015-04) - Journal article
    Abstract In pump-probe time and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (TR-ARPES) experiments the presence of the pump pulse adds a new level of complexity to the photoemission process in comparison to conventional ...
  • RAMÓN, Sociedad limitada. Consumo y creación en la estética de Ramón Gómez de la Serna. 

    Fernandez Romero, Ricardo (2014-07-01) - Journal article
    This article will study the creative process of Ramón Gómez de la Serna taking into account the intertwining of the practices of consumption and production of the capitalist system and the literary practices and aesthetic ...
  • Ramsey's 'Universals' 

    Doherty, Fiona Teresa (University of St Andrews, 2013) - Thesis
    Ramsey’s Universals has not been served well by its critics and, as a result, the real and important contentions of Ramsey’s essay are often obscured in discussion of his work. This thesis is intended to form the beginning ...
  • Random coeffcient models for complex longitudinal data 

    Kidney, Darren (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-27) - Thesis
    Longitudinal data are common in biological research. However, real data sets vary considerably in terms of their structure and complexity and present many challenges for statistical modelling. This thesis proposes a series ...
  • The random continued fraction transformation 

    Kalle, Charlene; Kempton, Thomas Michael William; Verbitskiy, Evgeny (2015-07) - Journal article
    We introduce a random dynamical system related to continued fraction expansions. It uses random combination of the Gauss map and the R\'enyi (or backwards) continued fraction map. We explore the continued fraction expansions ...
  • Random generation and chief length of finite groups 

    Menezes, Nina E. (University of St Andrews, 2013) - Thesis
    Part I of this thesis studies P[subscript(G)](d), the probability of generating a nonabelian simple group G with d randomly chosen elements, and extends this idea to consider the conditional probability P[subscript(G,S ...
  • Random super-prism wavelength meter 

    Mazilu, Michael; Vettenburg, Tom; Di Falco, Andrea; Dholakia, Kishan (2014-01-01) - Journal article
    The speckle pattern arising from a thin random, disordered scatterer may be used to detect the transversal mode of an incident beam. On the other hand, speckle patterns originating from meter-long multimode fibers can be ...
  • Randomised, single-masked non-inferiority trial of femtosecond laser-assisted versus manual phacoemulsification cataract surgery for adults with visually significant cataract : the FACT trial protocol 

    Day, Alexander C.; Burr, Jennifer M.; Bunce, Catey; Doré, Caroline J.; Sylvestre, Yvonne; Wormald, Richard P. L.; Round, Jeff; McCudden, Victoria; Rubin, Gary; Wilkins, Mark R.; FACT Group (2015-11-27) - Journal article
