Hölder differentiability of self-conformal devil's staircases
(2014-03-01) - Journal article,
In this paper we consider the probability distribution function of a Gibbs measure supported on a self-conformal set given by an iterated function system (devil's staircase) applied to a compact subset of ℝ. We use ...
Dimensions of sets which uniformly avoid arithmetic progressions
(2017-11-02) - Journal article,
We provide estimates for the dimensions of sets in ℝ which uniformly avoid finite arithmetic progressions (APs). More precisely, we say F uniformly avoids APs of length k≥3 if there is an ϵ>0 such that one cannot find an ...
Evaluating the effect of measurement error in pairs of 3D bearings in point transect sampling estimates of density
(University of St Andrews, 2018-03-27) - Report,
Incorporating animal movement into distance sampling
(2017-09-08) - Journal article,
Distance sampling is a popular statistical method to estimate the density of wild animal populations. Conventional distance sampling represents animals as fixed points in space that are detected with an unknown probability ...
A new technique for observationally derived boundary conditions for space weather
(2018-04-17) - Journal article,
Context. In recent years, space weather research has focused on developing modelling techniques to predict the arrival time and properties of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) at the Earth. The aim of this paper is to propose ...
Open population maximum likelihood spatial capture-recapture
(2017-09-04) - Journal article,
Open population capture-recapture models are widely used to estimate population demographics and abundance over time. Bayesian methods exist to incorporate open population modelling with spatial capture-recapture, allowing ...
Contribution of phase-mixing of Alfvén waves to coronal heating in multi-harmonic loop oscillations
(2018-04-26) - Journal article,
Context. Kink oscillations of a coronal loop are observed and studied in detail because they provide a unique probe into the structure of coronal loops through MHD seismology and a potential test of coronal heating through ...
A structured population model of clonal selection in acute leukemias with multiple maturation stages
(University of St Andrews, 2018-09-28) - Working or discussion paper,
Recent progress in genetic techniques has shed light on the complex coevolution of malignant cell clones in leukemias. However, several aspects of clonal selection still remain unclear. In this paper, we present a ...
The Paris Observatory appoints a director in 1907

Between primitive and 2-transitive : synchronization and its friends
(2017) - Journal article,
An automaton (consisting of a finite set of states with given transitions) is said to be synchronizing if there is a word in the transitions which sends all states of the automaton to a single state. Research on this topic ...
