  • Randomization-based models for multitiered experiments : I. a chain of randomizations 

    Bailey, Rosemary Anne; Brien, C. J. (2016-06) - Journal article
    We derive randomization-based models for experiments with a chain of randomizations. Estimation theory for these models leads to formulae for the estimators of treatment effects, their standard errors, and expected mean ...
  • Tracking marine mammals in 3D using electronic tag data 

    Laplanche, C.; Marques, T.A.; Thomas, L. (2015-09) - Journal article
    1. Information about at-depth behaviour of marine mammals is fundamental yet very hard to obtain from direct visual observation. Animal-borne multisensor electronic tags provide a unique window of observation into such ...
  • Constructing flag-transitive, point-imprimitive designs 

    Cameron, Peter Jephson; Praeger, Cheryl E. (2015-04) - Journal article
    We give a construction of a family of designs with a specified point-partition and determine the subgroup of automorphisms leaving invariant the point-partition. We give necessary and sufficient conditions for a design in ...
  • Permutation groups and transformation semigroups : results and problems 

    Araujo, Joao; Cameron, Peter Jephson (Cambridge University Press, 2015-10) - Book item
    J.M. Howie, the influential St Andrews semigroupist, claimed that we value an area of pure mathematics to the extent that (a) it gives rise to arguments that are deep and elegant, and (b) it has interesting interconnections ...
  • Guessing games on triangle-free graphs 

    Cameron, Peter Jephson; Dang, Anh; Riis, Soren (2016) - Journal article
    The guessing game introduced by Riis is a variant of the "guessing your own hats" game and can be played on any simple directed graph G on n vertices. For each digraph G, it is proved that there exists a unique guessing ...
