  • Fractal, group theoretic, and relational structures on Cantor space 

    Donoven, Casey Ryall (University of St Andrews, 2016) - Thesis
    Cantor space, the set of infinite words over a finite alphabet, is a type of metric space with a `self-similar' structure. This thesis explores three areas concerning Cantor space with regard to fractal geometry, group ...
  • Extremal problems in combinatorial semigroup theory 

    Mitchell, James David (University of St Andrews, 2002-07) - Thesis
    In this thesis we shall consider three types of extremal problems (i.e. problems involving maxima and minima) concerning semigroups. In the first chapter we show how to construct a minimal semigroup presentation that defines ...
  • Optimized automated survey design in wildlife population assessment 

    Strindberg, Samantha (University of St Andrews, 2001-05) - Thesis
    Increased pressure on the environment has placed numerous ecological populations under threat of extinction. Management schemes dedicated to the future conservation of wildlife populations rely on effective monitoring of ...
  • Helioseismology and diagnostics of internal magnetic layers 

    Foullon, Claire-Uriel Armelle Marie Aline (University of St Andrews, 2002-03) - Thesis
    Solar magnetic fields, as well as temperature changes, introduce pressure deviations that play a significant role in modulating the resonant frequencies of p-mode oscillations. Those pressure deviations occurring in the ...
  • Field line resonances in the earth's magnetosphere driven by convectively unstable magnetospheric waveguide modes 

    McRobbie, Mairi Catriona (University of St Andrews, 2002-07) - Thesis
    Shear flow instabilities, such as Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilities, occurring on the Earth’s magnetospheric flanks may cause fast magnetosonic wave modes to propagate through the non-homogeneous environment of the Earth’s ...
