  • Soft Selves and Ecological Control 

    Clark, Andy (MIT Press, 2006)
    Advanced biological brains are by nature open-ended opportunistic controllers. Such controllers compute, pretty much on a moment-to-moment basis, what problem-solving resources are readily available and recruit them into ...
  • Soot Volume Fraction Measurements in a Three-Dimensional Laminar Diffusion Flame established in Microgravity 

    Legros, Guillaume; Joulain, Pierre; Jean-Pierre, Vantelon; Fuentes, Andres; Bertheau, Denis; Torero, Jose L (Taylor and Francis Ltd, 2005-05-03)
    A methodology for the estimation of the soot volume fraction in a three-dimensional laminar diffusion flame is presented. All experiments are conducted in microgravity and have as objective producing quantitative data ...
  • Sooting Behaviour Dynamics of a Non-Bouyant Laminar Diffusion Flame 

    Fuentes, Andres; Legros, Guillaume; Rouvreau, Sebastien; Joulain, Pierre; Vantelon, Jean-Pierre; Torero, Jose L; Fernandez-Pello, Carlos (Taylor and Francis, 2007)
    Local soot concentrations in non-buoyant laminar diffusion flames have been demonstrated to be the outcome of two competitive processes, soot formation and soot oxidation. It was first believed that soot formation was the ...
  • Sounds and Space 

    Nudds, Matthew (2007-10)
    Where are sounds are where do we percieve them to be? In what follows I argue that when we hear them sounds are where we are, but that we don't hear them to be where we are because we don't hear them to be anywhere. This ...
  • Speech recognition using linear dynamic models. 

    Frankel, Joe; King, Simon (IEEE, 2006)
    The majority of automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems rely on hidden Markov models, in which Gaussian mixtures model the output distributions associated with sub-phone states. This approach, whilst successful, models ...
  • Speech recognition using linear dynamic models. 

    Frankel, Joe; King, Simon (IEEE, 2007-01)

  • The Spirit of ’71: how the Bangladeshi War of Independence has haunted Tower Hamlets. 

    Glynn, Sarah (Institute of Geography. The School of Geosciences.The University of Edinburgh, 2006-08)
    In 1971 Bengalis in Britain rallied en masse in support of the independence struggle that created Bangladesh. This study explores the nature and impact of that movement, and its continuing legacy for Bengalis in Britain, ...
  • A structural analysis of the Cardington British Steel corner test 

    Gillie, Martin; Usmani, Asif; Rotter, J Michael (Elsevier, 2002)
    This paper presents a structural analysis of the Cardington British Steel corner test. The test is a analyzes using ABAQUS, the commercial finite element program. The results of the analysis indicate that the response of ...
  • A structural analysis of the first Cardington test 

    Gillie, Martin; Usmani, Asif; Rotter, J Michael (Elsevier, 2001)
    This paper presents a finite element analysis of the first Cardington test using shell elements to model the concrete floor slab. The behaviour of these elements is defined using FEAST, a program that allows the behaviour ...
  • The structure set of an arbitrary space, the algebraic surgery exact sequence and the total surgery obstruction 

    Ranicki, Andrew (Notes of lecture given at the Summer School on High-dimensional Manifold Topology, ICTP Trieste, May-June 2001. To appear in Vol. 1 of the Proceedings, 2001-11-30)
    The algebraic theory of surgery gives a necessary and suffcient chain level condition for a space with n-dimensional Poincare duality to be homotopy equivalent to an n- dimensional topological manifold. A relative version ...
  • Subtyping and Parametricity 

    Plotkin, Gordon; Abadi, Martin; Cardelli, Luca (2003-11-05)
    In this paper we study the interaction of subtyping and parametricity. We describe a logic for a programming language with parametric polymorphism and subtyping. The logic supports the formal definition and use of ...
  • SUNCAT: The serials union catalogue for the UK research community 

    Mulligan, Zena (Association of Librarians and Information Professionals in the Social Sciences, 2007-01)
    SUNCAT is the national Serials Union CATalogue for the UK research community and is available at http://www.suncat.ac.uk SUNCAT is a freely available tool to help both researchers and librarians locate serials held in ...
  • A SURVEY OF WALL'S FINITENESS OBSTRUCTION 

    Ferry, Steve; Ranicki, Andrew (http://arxiv.org/abs/math.AT/0008070,, 2000)
    Wall's finiteness obstruction is an algebraic K-theory invariant which decides if a finitely dominated space is homotopy equivalent to a finite CW complex. The invariant was originally formulated in the context of surgery ...
  • ‘A tall storey…but, a fact just the same’: The Red Road highrise as a black box 

    Jacobs, Jane M; Cairns, Stephen; Strebel, Ignaz (Institute of Geography. The School of Geosciences.The University of Edinburgh, 2006)
    The advent of state-sponsored mass highrise housing in the post-war period brought into view a range of issues about the role of technology in everyday life. This paper draws on approaches in the study of science and ...
  • Theses Alive! : an E-theses management system for the UK 

    Andrew, Theo (2004-03-08)
    The concept of Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) is not a new one. E-Theses have been openly discussed by key players in the present worldwide ETD movement since 1987 , and even accepted by some universities (e.g. ...
  • Thomas Pogge’s Global Resources Dividend: a critique and an alternative 

    Hayward, Tim (Sage, 2005-11)
    Pogge’s proposal for a Global Resources Dividend (GRD) has been criticised because its likely effects would be less predictable than Pogge supposes and could even be counterproductive to the main aim of relieving poverty. ...
  • Three Inadequate Models 

    Plotkin, Gordon (2003-11-06)
    The connection between operational and denotational semantics is of longstanding interest in the study of programming languages. One naturally seeks positive results. For example in [FP94, Sim99] adequacy results are ...
  • Three-Dimensional Recomposition of the Absorption Field Inside a Non-Buoyant Sooting Diffusion Flame 

    Legros, Guillaume; Fuentes, Andres; Ben-Abdallah, Philippe; Baillargeat, Jacques; Joulain, Pierre; Vantelon, Jean-Pierre; Torero, Jose L (Optical Society of America, 2005-09)
    A remote scanning retrieval method was developed to investigate the soot layer produced by a laminar diffusion flame established over a flat plate burner in microgravity. Experiments were conducted during parabolic flights. ...
  • Towards a Mathematical Operational Semantics 

    Plotkin, Gordon; Turi, Daniele (2003-11-05)
    We present a categorical theory of ‘well-behaved’ operational semantics which aims at complementing the established theory of domains and denotational semantics to form a coherent whole. It is shown that, if the operational ...
  • Treatment of Design Fire Uncertainty using Quadrature Method of Moments 

    Upadhyay, Rochan; Ezekoye, Ofodike A (2008-02)
    The use of a single design fire in a performance based fire design code typically fails to account for the inherent uncertainty in knowledge of the future use of the space. Uncertainties in knowledge of intended use and ...
