Calibrated and uncalibrated photometric stereo for surface texture acquisition
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2005) 
Categorical structures on bundle gerbes and higher geometric prequantisation
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics and Computer Sciences, 201709)We present a construction of a 2Hilbert space of sections of a bundle gerbe, a suitable candidate for a prequantum 2Hilbert space in higher geometric quantisation. We start by briefly recalling the construction of the ...

Combining evolutionary algorithms and agentbased simulation for the development of urbanisation policies
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201707)Urbanplanning authorities continually face the problem of optimising the allocation of green space over time in developing urban environments. To help in these decisionmaking processes, this thesis provides an empirical ...

Computer assessment in mathematics
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 199604)This thesis investigates methods of assessing students' mathematical ability by using the computer. It starts by reviewing the general types of assessment within mathematics educational software and then describes some ...

Control and surveillance of partially observed stochastic epidemics in a Bayesian framework
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201612)This thesis comprises a number of interrelated parts. For most of the thesis we are concerned with developing a new statistical technique that can enable the identi cation of the optimal control by comparing competing ...
