  • Local Associations and Global Reason: Fodor’s Frame Problem and Second-Order Search 

    Clark, Andy (Hermes-Lavoisier, Paris & Oxford., 2002)
    Kleinberg (1999) describes a novel procedure for efficient search in a dense hyper-linked environment, such as the world wide web. The procedure exploits information implicit in the links between pages so as to identify ...
  • The Local Data Support Landscape in the UK 

    MacDonald, Stuart; Martinez-Uribe, Luis (IASSIST Quarterly, 2005)
    This paper will report on existing data support infrastructures within the UK tertiary education community. The paper will then discuss early methods and traditions of data collection within UK territories. In addition it ...
  • Local Dimensionality Reduction for Non-Parametric Regression 

    Hoffmann, Heiko; Schaal, Stefan; Vijayakumar, Sethu (Springer, 2009)
    Locally-weighted regression is a computationally-efficient technique for non-linear regression. However, for high-dimensional data, this technique becomes numerically brittle and computationally too expensive if many ...
  • Long-term CH3Br and CH3Cl flux measurements in temperate salt marshes 

    Blei, Emanuel; Heal, Mathew R; Heal, Kate V (Copernicus Publications for European Geosciences Union, 2010-11)
    Fluxes of CH3Br and CH3Cl and their relationship with potential drivers such as sunlight, temperature and soil moisture, were monitored at fortnightly to monthly intervals for more than two years at two contrasting temperate ...
  • Long-Term Exposure of Sitka Spruce Seedlings to Trichloroacetic Acid 

    Cape, Neil; Reeves, Nicholas M; Schroder, Peter; Heal, Mathew R (Royal Meterological Society, 2003)
    Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) has been implicated as an airborne pollutant responsible for adverse effects on forest health. There is considerable debate as to whether TCA observed in trees and forest soils is derived from ...
  • The longevity legacy: the problem of old animals in zoos 

    Kitchener, Andrew; Macdonald, Alastair A (Blackwells, 2002)
    Zoos once demonstrated their skill in keeping wild mammals in captivity by longevity records. However, as our knowledge of animal husbandry in zoos has increased and breeding in most species has become commonplace, so the ...
  • Longitudinal cohort study of childhood IQ and survival up to age 76 

    Whalley, Lawrence J; Deary, Ian J (BMJ Publishing Group, 2001)
    Objectives: To test the association between childhood IQ and mortality over the normal human lifespan. Design: Longitudinal cohort study. Setting: Aberdeen. Subjects: All 2792 children in Aberdeen born in 1921 and ...
  • Loss of Dicer fowls up centromeres 

    White, Sharon A; Allshire, Robin C (Nature Publishing Group, 2004-08)
    Centromeres, specialized regions on chromosomes, are essential for accurate chromosome segregation during cell division. In fission yeast, the RNA interference machinery has a pivotal function in the assembly of ...
