  • Hidden properties identification and text diversity translation of people’s names 

    Zhao, Hua (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2022-03)
    Developments in the ability to analyse online data of people’s names have provided breakthroughs for social research, however, there are several existing challenges. This thesis proposes several novel approaches for ...
  • Reasoning and understanding grasp affordances for robot manipulation 

    Ardon Ramirez, Paola A. (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences University of Edinburgh Edinburgh Centre for Robotics, 2022-03)
    This doctoral research focuses on developing new methods that enable an artificial agent to grasp and manipulate objects autonomously. More specifically, we are using the concept of affordances to learn and generalise ...
  • Age heaping in population data of emerging countries 

    Barajas Paz, Andres (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2022-02)
    Mortality analyses have commonly focused on countries represented in the Human Mortality Database that have good quality mortality data. In this thesis, we address the challenge that, in many countries, population and ...
  • Non-linear partial differential equations of kinetic type 

    Lazaridou, Christina (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences The University of Edinburgh, 2022-02)
    This thesis is concerned with the analytical study of non-linear partial differential equations (PDEs) of kinetic type which admit multiple stationary solutions. We consider a kinetic model which is given by a non-linear ...
  • Linear and nonlinear wave equation models with power law attenuation 

    Baker, Katherine (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2022-02)
    Motivated by the need to model high intensity focused ultrasound in lossy media we study linear and nonlinear wave equations that contain non local time fractional derivatives, whose inclusion in our models incorporates ...
