Welcome to ROS
The ROS Theses Repository contains full-text copies of all Heriot-Watt University PhD theses awarded from 2009 onwards.
It is mandatory for any student who completes a doctoral thesis to submit a digital copy for inclusion in ROS. In addition, the metadata-only records of older theses (previously held in the University Library catalogue) are included in ROS, with full text digital copies being sought on a voluntary basis. If you have a digital copy of your thesis and you wish to store it in ROS, please contact us.

Length bounds for the conjugacy search problem in relatively hyperbolic groups, limit groups and residually free groups (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2014-02)In this thesis we prove conjugacy length bounds for several classes of groups. We use geometric and algebraic methods to show that there is a polynomial conjugacy length bound for relatively hyperbolic groups, a linear ...
(Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2014-05)This thesis studies the problem of intelligent localisation for an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). After an introduction about robot localisation and specific issues in the underwater domain, the thesis will focus ...
(Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2014-01)The main goal of this thesis is the numerical and experimental verification of the concept of the structured micro-optical elements fabricated with the modified stackand- draw technique. This technology, based on the ...
Advances in the theoretical determination of molecular structure with applications to anion photoelectron spectroscopy (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2013-12)This Dissertation is focussed primarily on development of methods aiming at the determination of molecular structures with application to systems with intra and intermolecular hydrogen bonds. I have developed and ...
