  • Furnishing the modern street: the critical reception to street furniture design in postwar Britain 

    Herring, Eleanor Anna McNiven (The University of Edinburgh, 2014-06-27)
    In the immediate aftermath of the Second World War, many of the British government’s attempts to rebuild the social order and improve standards were experienced through design. This was true not only in the home and in ...
  • Further Investigation of MDS as a Tool for Evaluation of Speech Quality of Synthesized Speech 

    Janska, Anna C. (2009-11-26)
    The dissertation investigates MDS as a tool for the evaluation of the quality of synthesized speech. More specifically, it investigates the relations between Weighted Euclidean Distance Scaling and Simple Euclidean Distance ...
  • The future of literary GIS: James Boswell in Rome 

    van der Velden, Johanna J. (The University of Edinburgh, 2012-11-29)
    This course aims to find the future of literary GIS; it wants to find out how much of an aid GIS can be to literary studies, and if GIS can become an integrated part of literary research. There have some studies been done ...
  • Fuzzy Rules from Ant-Inspired Computation 

    Galea, Michelle (2007-11)
    This research identifies and investigates major issues in inducing accurate and comprehensible fuzzy rules from datasets.
  • Game Semantics and Subtyping 

    Chroboczek, Juliusz (University of Edinburgh. College of Science and Engineering. School of Informatics., 2003-07)
    Game Semantics is a relatively new framework for the description of the semantics of programming languages. By combining the mathematical elegance of Denotational Semantics with explicitly operational concepts, Game Semantics ...
  • Game semantics for an object-oriented language 

    Wolverson, Nicholas (The University of Edinburgh, 2009)
    This thesis investigates the relationship between object-oriented programming languages and game models of computation. These are intuitively well matched: an object encapsulates some internal state and presents some ...
  • Game semantics for probabilistic modal μ-calculi 

    Mio, Matteo (The University of Edinburgh, 2012-06-25)
    The probabilistic (or quantitative) modal μ-calculus is a fixed-point logic designed for expressing properties of probabilistic labeled transition systems (PLTS’s). Two semantics have been studied for this logic, both ...
  • Game Theoretic Models of Public Choice and Political Economy 

    Balduzzi, Paolo (The University of Edinburgh. Management School and Economics. Economics, 2006-07)
    This thesis is composed of three chapters, which can be read independently. In the first one, we present and solve some bargaining games a la Rubinstein, where the subjects can delegate the negotiating process to agents. ...
  • Games for Modal and Temporal Logics 

    Lange, Martin (University of Edinburgh. College of Science and Engineering. School of Informatics., 2003-07)
    Every logic comes with several decision problems. One of them is the model checking problem: does a given structure satisfy a given formula? Another is the satisfiability problem: for a given formula, is there a structure ...
  • Gamma-ray spectroscopy measurements for nuclear reactions in novae 

    Lotay, Gavin James (The University of Edinburgh, 2009)
    The 23Mg(pγ)24Al and 26Al(pγ)27Si astrophysical reactions are expected to be of considerable importance in the nucleosynthesis of A≥20 nuclei in classical novae. Previous studies have indicated that both reactions are ...
  • Gas-loading apparatus for large-volume high-pressure cell 

    Bocian, Artur (The University of Edinburgh, 2012-06-25)
    The Paris-Edinburgh cell (PEC) is a widely used opposed-anvil device for neutron scattering. Since its development, it has been used to study a number of samples loaded as solids or liquids. However, studying gases at ...
  • Gas-phase electron diffraction studies of unstable molecules 

    Noble-Eddy, Robert (The University of Edinburgh, 2009)
    Gas-phase electron diffraction (GED) is the only viable technique for the accurate structural study of gas-phase molecules that contain more than ~10 atoms. Recent advances in Edinburgh have made it possible to study ...
  • Gas-phase structures of molecules containing heavy p-block elements 

    Wann, Derek A (The University of Edinburgh: College of Science & Engineering: School of Chemistry, 2005-10)
    Gas-phase electron diffraction (GED) is the method of choice for determining the structures of molecules containing between two and 100 atoms, free from intermolecular interaction. However, for many molecules it becomes ...
  • Gauge fixed gluonic observables and neutral kaon mixing on the lattice 

    Hudspith, Renwick (The University of Edinburgh, 2013-11-28)
    This thesis presents gauge fixed gluonic observable and neutral Kaon mixing matrix element measurements using nf=2+1 Domain Wall Fermion (DWF) configurations. These were generated with the Iwasaki gauge action by the ...
  • Gavin Hamilton, John Balfour and Patrick Neill: a study of publishing in Edinburgh in the Eighteenth Century. 

    McDougall, Warren (The University of Edinburgh. College of Humanities and Social Science, 1975-06)
    Eighteenth-century Scottish bibliography is a vast subject still awaiting exploration. There are, however, some landmarks to look for and guides to employ. I am thinking particularly, in the context of my own interests, ...
  • The Gazetteer for Scotland and Historical Geographies: Tying Historical Information to the Geography of Scotland 

    Mann, Katherine W (2008-12-05)
    Historical geographies are of key importance to people researching genealogy. However, it is very difficult to find any easily accessible interactive map-based historical geography on the Web. This study therefore focused ...
  • The Gazetteer of Scotland making use of population data to represent Web Based Geographical Information for Scotland 

    Ngeh, Julius A (2007-11-27)
    This paper aimed to examine how the Gazetteer for Scotland can make use of historical and current population information for Scotland by applying GIS techniques and the World Wide Web to facilitate the access, use and ...
  • Gender and Family Formation in Uttar Pradesh, India 

    Wainwright, Sunila Claire (The University of Edinburgh. Management School and Economics. Economics, 2007-03)
    While modernising influences affect many facets of the lives of millions of Indian families, there remain deep-rooted socio-cultural practices and traditions that survive and become engendered in new institutional ...
  • Gender and Identity in Mandarin Chinese Blogosphere 

    Siqun, Xu (2007-11-28)
    The research on gender and identity in Mandarin Chinese CMC sphere has been less explored from a sociolinguistic point of view, which motivates me to do some relevant studies to shed light on the issues of gender difference ...
  • Gender differences in the employment expectations of final year undergraduates in a university in Central China
