    • A model for solar flares and coronal heating based on magnetohydrodynamic avalanches 

      Reid, Jack (University of St Andrews, 2020-12-01) - Thesis
      The coronal heating problem addresses how temperatures in the solar atmosphere increase by millions of degrees, moving up from the cool surface, into the upper reaches of the atmosphere. This heating, known to be attributable ...
    • Subdirect products of free semigroups and monoids 

      Clayton, Ashley (University of St Andrews, 2020-12-01) - Thesis
      Subdirect products are special types of subalgebras of direct products. The purpose of this thesis is to initiate a study of combinatorial properties of subdirect products and fiber products of semigroups and monoids, ...
    • Numerical modelling of MHD waves in coronal loops 

      Van Damme, Hendrik-Jan (University of St Andrews, 2020-12-03) - Thesis
      Waves in the solar corona have been investigated for many years, as a potential coronal heating mechanism and in the context of coronal seismology, and they play an important role in our understanding of the solar corona. ...
    • Nonlinear mixed effect models for modeling initial viral decay rates in an HIV study 

      Kang, Sujin (2008-11-27) - Thesis
      The Nonlinear Mixed Effect Viral Dynamic Model can easily handle unbalanced repeated and continuous measures data for individuals and is also popular in many other research areas such as biology and pharmacokinetics. Wu ...
    • On the regularity dimensions of measures 

      Howroyd, Douglas Charles (University of St Andrews, 2020) - Thesis
      This body of work is based upon the following three papers that the author wrote during his PhD with Jonathan Fraser and Han Yu: [FH20, HY17, How19]. Chapter 1 starts by introducing many of the common tools and notation ...
