  • Mindful Belief 

    Toribio, Josefa (Department of Philosophy. Stockholm University, 2002)
    It is sometimes said that humans are unlike other animals in at least one crucial respect. We do not simply form beliefs, desires and other mental states, but are capable of caring about our mental states in a distinctive ...
  • Minds, Brains and Tools 

    Clark, Andy (Clarendon Press, Oxford, 2002)
    The selected texts for this discussion were two recent pieces by Dennett (“Things About Things” and “Making Tools for Thinking” – henceforth TAT and MTT respectively) and one oldie-but-goodie (“Styles of Mental Representation”, ...
  • Minimal Rationalism 

    Clark, Andy (Oxford University Press, 1993)
    Enquiries into the possible nature and scope of innate knowledge never proceed in an empirical vaccuum. Instead, such conjectures are informed by a theory (perhaps only tacitly endorsed) concerning probable representational ...
  • Miocene shallow-water carbonates on the Eratosthenes Seamount, easternmost Mediterranean Sea 

    Robertson, Alastair H F (Ocean Drilling Program, 1998)
    Miocene shallow-water limestones of the Eratosthenes Seamount add considerably to the picture of widespread and heterogeneous Mediterranean Miocene reef development. Shallow-water limestones were cored at two sites on the ...
  • Misfeasance in Public Office: An Emerging Medical Law Tort? 

    Laurie, Graeme; Mason, J K (Oxford University Press, 2003)
    The authors draw on two notable cases, Akenzua v. Secretary of State for the Home Department, and Palmer v Tees Health Authority, to which the outcome has prompted the article discussing misfeasance as an emerging medical ...
  • Model-Based Query Systems for Emergency Response 

    Potter, Stephen; Wickler, Gerhard (2008)
    In this paper we describe the approach adopted and experiences gained during a project to develop a general architecture that aims to harness advanced sensor, modelling and Grid technologies to assist emergency responders ...
  • Modelización de Incendios: Ventajas y Riesgos 

    Vigne, Gabriele; Rein, Guillermo (www.fundacionfuego.org, 2010-12)
    La ingeniería de seguridad contra incendios (SCI) está convirtiéndose cada vez más en un reconocido y establecido ámbito de la ingeniería y en una parte importante en el proceso de diseño de edificios y de infraestructuras. ...
  • Modelling ecological interaction despite object-oriented modularity 

    Derry, Julian F (Elsevier, 1998)
    Ecological modellers may be deterred from using object-oriented programming languages by reports of the inherent rigidity of the object-oriented formulation, giving rise to a poor representation of biotic interaction. ...
  • Modelling of Structures in Fire: An Example of the Boundary Condition 

    Jowsey, Allan; Torero, Jose L; Usmani, Asif (GRUPO GIDAI, Universidad de Cantabria (Spain), 2004-10)
    The collapse of the World Trade Center Towers 1, 2 and 7 on September 11th 2001 has highlighted the need for proper understanding of the behaviour of structures in the event of a fire. A detailed analysis of the fires and ...
  • Modelling of the Growth Phase of Dalmarnock Fire Test One 

    Rein, Guillermo; Jahn, Wolfram; Torero, Jose L (Fire and Materials 2011 Conference, 2011-02)
    The challenge of modelling a well characterized full-scale fire test using computational fluid dynamics is illustrated in this work comparing a priori and a posteriori simulations. In 2006, The Dalmarnock Fire Tests were ...
  • Modelling surface ozone during the 2003 heat-wave in the UK 

    Vieno, Massimo; Dore, A J; Stevenson, David S; Doherty, Ruth; Heal, Mathew R; Reis, Stefan; Hallsworth, Stephen; Tarrason, L; Wind, P; Fowler, David; Simpson, David; Sutton, Mark A (Copernicus Publications for European Geosciences Union, 2010)
    The EMEP4UK modelling system is a high resolution (5×5 km2) application of the EMEP chemistry-transport model, designed for scientific and policy studies in the UK. We demonstrate the use and performance of the EMEP4UK ...
  • Modelling the uncertainty in recovering articulation from acoustics 

    Richmond, Korin; King, Simon; Taylor, Paul (Elsevier, 2003)
    This paper presents an experimental comparison of the performance of the multilayer perceptron (MLP) with that of the mixture density network (MDN) for an acoustic-to-articulatory mapping task. A corpus of acoustic-articulatory ...
  • Modelling Urban scale Retrofit, Pathways to 2050 Low Carbon Residential Building Stock 

    Lannon, Simon; Georgakaki, Aliki; Macdonald, Stuart (IBPSA, 2013-08)
    A bottom up engineering modelling approach has been used to investigate the pathways to 2050 low carbon residential building stock. The impact of housing retrofit, renewable technologies, occupant behaviour, and grid ...
  • The modern touch: interior design and modernisation in post-independence Singapore 

    Jacobs, Jane M; Cairns, S. (2007-06-01)
    The authors take as their focus the advice on interior design and decoration that Singapore's Housing Development Board (HDB) distributed to residents as part of its programme of universal housing provision. Through a ...
  • Modularity, Relativism, and Neural Constructivism 

    Toribio, Josefa (Hermes Science Publications, 2002)
    Fodor (1983) claims that the modularity of mind (the relatively encapsulated, insulated, special-purpose nature of the psychological mechanisms of perception) helps undermine relativism in various forms. I shall show ...
  • Molecular biology - Methylation talk between histones and DNA 

    Bird, Adrian P (AMER ASSOC ADVANCEMENT SCIENCE, WASHINGTON, 2001)
    The addition of methyl groups to DNA or histones is a way to directly or indirectly silence gene expression. Although the two events are conceivably connected, they have always been studied separately. In his Perspective, ...
  • Monadic constraint programming 

    Schrijvers, Tom; Stuckey, Peter; Wadler, Philip (Cambridge University Press, 2009)
    A constraint programming system combines two essential components: a constraint solver and a search engine. The constraint solver reasons about satisfiability of conjunctions of constraints, and the search engine controls ...
  • Moral Rights and the Internet: Squaring the Circle 

    Waelde, Charlotte; de Souza, Lionel (Sweet & Maxwell, 2002)
    The article examines the attributes of moral rights, as found in copyright law, over works created and distributed across the Internet. The authors discuss challenges inherent in distributing works across borders with ...
