    • Methods in spatially explicit capture-recapture 

      Stevenson, Ben C. (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-24) - Thesis
      Capture-recapture (CR) methods are a ubiquitous means of estimating animal abundance from wildlife surveys. They rely on the detection and subsequent redetection of individuals over a number of sampling occasions. It is ...
    • Title redacted 

      Worthington, Hannah (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-24) - Thesis
    • Mathematical modelling of tumour-immune competition tumour growth : discrete and continuum approaches 

      Macfarlane, Fiona Ruth (University of St Andrews, 2019-12-03) - Thesis
      The ability of the human immune system to detect and remove cancer cells is exploited in the development of immunotherapy techniques. However, further understanding of these mechanisms is required and can be achieved through ...
    • Assouad type dimensions and dimension spectra 

      Yu, Han (University of St Andrews, 2019-12-03) - Thesis
      In the first part of this thesis we introduce a new dimension spectrum motivated by the Assouad dimension; a familiar notion of dimension which, for a given metric space, returns the minimal exponent α ≥ 0 such that for ...
    • On the emergence and evolution of jets and vortices in turbulent planetary atmospheres 

      Jougla, Thibault (University of St Andrews, 2019-06-25) - Thesis
      This thesis investigates the formation and evolution of jets and vortices in turbulent planetary atmospheres using a dual approach of high-resolution numerical simulations and novel laboratory experiments. A two-layer ...
