On conformal submersions and manifolds with exceptional structure groups
(The University of Edinburgh, 20120625)This thesis comes in three main parts. In the first of these (comprising chapters 2  6), the basic theory of Riemannian and conformal submersions is described and the relevant geometric machinery explained. The necessary ... 
On elliptical whyfragments
(The University of Edinburgh, 2013)In this dissertation I argue that whyfragments cannot be explained through syntactic moveanddelete operations. This argument is motivated by the existence of whyfragments that are discourseinitial and, in many cases, ... 
On French borrowing as a lexical choice in Middle English translation: a historicosemantic approach
(20070827)The present study begins as a survey of previous studies in French borrowing in Middle English, and thereby the related works on the multilingual situation in medieval England and bilingualism. As the survey proceeds, a ... 
On Functors Expressible in the Polymorphic Typed Lambda Calculus
(Information and Computation, 1991)Given a model of the polymorphic typed lambda calculus based upon a Cartesian closed category K, there will be functors from K to K whose action on objects can be expressed by type expressions and whose action on morphisms ... 
On Generating Combilex Pronunciations via Morphological Analysis
(2010)Combilex is a highquality lexicon that has been developed specifically for speech technology purposes and recently released by CSTR. Combilex benefits from many advanced features. This paper explores one of these: the ... 
On HarishChandra bimodules of rational Cherednik algebras at regular parameter values
(The University of Edinburgh, 201209)This thesis deals with HarishChandra bimodules of rational Cherednik algebras Hk at regular parameter values k, that is those k for which Hk is a simple algebra. Rational Cherednik algebras can be associated to any ... 
On incorporating bone microstructure in macro niteelement models
(The University of Edinburgh, 20110628)Bone is porous and has a complex microstructure. This study considers the effect of microstructural morphology on the macrolevel mechanical properties of bone. Improved incorporation of such properties is required to ... 
On inexact Newton directions in interior point methods for linear optimization
(The University of Edinburgh, 2009)In each iteration of the interior point method (IPM) at least one linear system has to be solved. The main computational effort of IPMs consists in the computation of these linear systems. Solving the corresponding linear ... 
On inverting Hegel : The relations of Hegel's and Marx's accounts of alienation.
(University of Edinburgh, 1984) 
On Miracles: A Defence of Explanationist Realism
(The University of Edinburgh, 20121128)“No Miracles” arguments have been a live part of the realism debate for several decades, but there has been a tendency to misrepresent or conflate them. In this thesis I identify several varieties of explanationist realism, ... 
On probabilistic inference approaches to stochastic optimal control
(The University of Edinburgh, 20131128)While stochastic optimal control, together with associate formulations like Reinforcement Learning, provides a formal approach to, amongst other, motor control, it remains computationally challenging for most practical ... 
On Process Equivalence = Equation Solving in CCS
(Springer, 200906)Unique Fixpoint Induction (UFI) is the chief inference rule to prove the equivalence of recursive processes in the Calculus of Communicating Systems (CCS) (Milner 1989). It plays a major role in the equational approach to ... 
On Representation of Fundamental Frequency of Speech for Prosody Analysis Using Reliability Function.
(International Speech Communication Association, 1997)This paper highlights on a method that provides a new prosodic feature called ‘F0 reliability field’ based on a reliability function of the fundamental frequency (F0). The proposed method does not employ any correction ... 
On rules and the metaphysics of meaning
(The University of Edinburgh. College of Humanities and Social Science, 200206)In this work I develop an argument which shows that rulefollowing is impossible, and investigate its impact on the philosophy of language. By way of orientation, I start with a critical evaluation of existing ‘rulefollowing ... 
On structural studies of highdensity potassium and sodium
(The University of Edinburgh, 20140628)The alkali elements at ambient conditions are well described by the nearlyfree electron (NFE) model, yet show a remarkable departure from this “simple” behaviour with increasing pressure. Lowsymmetry complex structures ... 
On the analysis of English adjectives in a Montague grammar.
(University of Edinburgh, 1983) 
On the Articulatory Representation of Speech within the Evolving Transformation System Formalism
(200408)This paper deals with the formulation of an alternative, structural, approach to the speech representation and recognition problem. In this approach, we require both the representation and the learning algorithms to be ... 
On the assessment of blood velocity and wall shear rate in arteries with Doppler ultrasound: a validation study
(The University of Edinburgh, 2008)Cardiovascular disease, mostly atherosclerosis, is responsible for one third of all deaths globally, rising to more than 50% in the Western World. Risk factors include smoking, diet, and familial history. Doppler ultrasound ... 
ON THE CALCULATION OF UNIL
(20030402)Cappell’s codimension 1 splitting obstruction surgery group UNiln is a direct summand of the Wall surgery obstruction group of an amalgamated free product. For any ring with involution R we use the quadratic Poincar´e ...
