  • Spectral-energy efficiency trade-off for next-generation wireless communication systems 

    Haider, Fourat Sami (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2015-09)
    The data traffic in cellular networks has had and will experience a rapid exponential rise. Therefore, it is essential to innovate a new cellular architecture with advanced wireless technologies that can offer more ...
  • Representation and estimation of stochastic populations 

    Houssineau, Jérémie (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2015-08)
    This work is concerned with the representation and the estimation of populations composed of an uncertain and varying number of individuals which can randomly evolve in time. The existing solutions that address this type ...
  • Challenging systems for quantum chemistry : inorganic excited states and intermolecular aggregates 

    Almeida, Nuno Miguel da Silva (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2016-09)
    This thesis focuses on challenging systems for computational chemistry: inorganic excited states and intermolecular aggregates. Excited states of inorganic systems can be extremely challenging for conventional methods of ...
  • Icy dust grains in the interstellar medium : their properties and impact 

    Rosu-Finsen, Alexander (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2016-10)
    The behaviour of atoms and molecules on interstellar dust grain analogue surfaces has been probed with surface science techniques such as reflection-absorption infrared spectroscopy (RAIRS) and temperature programmed ...
  • Non-Markovian dynamics of open quantum systems 

    Addis, Carole (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2016-10)
    This thesis is centred around the striking phenomenon of non-Markovianity which emanates from exact dynamical descriptions of open quantum systems. Non- Markovianity is associated with the existence of memory effects in ...
