  • Notes on a semigroup related to the dicyclic group Qn 

    Sorouhesh, Mohammad R.; Campbell, Colin M. (2017-09-21) - Journal article
    We consider certain properties of the semigroup S defined by the Presentation S = 〈a,b : a2ⁿ⁻¹ = 1,b2 = a2ⁿ⁻², ba = ab2ⁿ⁻¹-1〉, (n ≥ 3).
  • On the star-height of subword counting languages and their relationship to Rees zero-matrix semigroups 

    Bourne, Tom; Ruškuc, Nik (2016-11-15) - Journal article
    Given a word w over a finite alphabet, we consider, in three special cases, the generalised star-height of the languages in which w occurs as a contiguous subword (factor) an exact number of times and of the languages in ...
  • Incorporating animal movement into distance sampling 

    Glennie, Richard; Buckland, Stephen Terrence; Langrock, Roland; Gerrodette, Tim; Ballance, Lisa; Chivers, Susan; Scott, Michael; Perrin, William (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 ...
  • Open population maximum likelihood spatial capture-recapture 

    Glennie, Richard; Borchers, David Louis; Murchie, Matthew; Harmsen, Bart; Foster, Rebecca (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 ...
  • Particle acceleration with anomalous pitch angle scattering in 2D magnteohydrodynamic reconnection simulations 

    Borissov, Alexei; Kontar, Eduard; Threlfall, James William; Neukirch, Thomas (2017-09) - Journal article
    The conversion of magnetic energy into other forms (such as plasma heating, bulk plasma flows, and non-thermal particles) during solar flares is one of the outstanding open problems in solar physics. It is generally accepted ...
