    • Modelling solar coronal magnetic field evolution 

      Goldstraw, Erin Elizabeth (University of St Andrews, 2019-12-03) - Thesis
      Footpoint motions at the photosphere can inject energy into the magnetic field in the solar corona. This energy is then released in the corona as heat. There are many mathematical approaches to model the evolution of these ...
    • Mathematical modelling of cancer invasion and metastatic spread 

      Franssen, Linnea Christin (University of St Andrews, 2019-12-03) - Thesis
      Metastatic spread—the dissemination of cancer cells from a primary tumour with subsequent re-colonisation at secondary sites in the body—causes around 90% of cancer-related deaths. Mathematical modelling may provide a ...
    • Estimating abundance of African great apes 

      Howe, Eric J (University of St Andrews, 2019-12-03) - Thesis
      All species and subspecies of African great apes are listed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature as endangered or critically endangered, and populations continue to decline. As human populations and ...
    • Theoretical models of charged particle acceleration motivated by solar flares 

      Borissov, Alexei (University of St Andrews, 2019-06-25) - Thesis
      In this thesis we examine non-thermal particle behaviour in the presence of modelled electromagnetic fields motivated by various aspects of solar flares. We first investigate particle dynamics in magnetic reconnection ...
    • Orderings on words and permutations 

      McDevitt, Matthew (University of St Andrews, 2019-12-03) - Thesis
      Substructure orderings are ubiquitous throughout combinatorics and all of mathematics. In this thesis we consider various orderings on words, as well as the consecutive involvement ordering on permutations. Throughout ...
