Laplace asymptotic expansions of conditional wiener integrals and applications
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 1982) 
Largescale optimization : combining cooperative coevolution and fitness inheritance
(Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201902)Largescale optimization, here referring mainly to problems with many design parameters remains a serious challenge for optimization algorithms. When the problem at hand does not succumb to analytical treatment (an ... 
Learning preferences for personalisation in a pervasive environment
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Science, 201108)With ever increasing accessibility to technological devices, services and applications there is also an increasing burden on the end user to manage and configure such resources. This burden will continue to increase as the ... 
Length bounds for the conjugacy search problem in relatively hyperbolic groups, limit groups and residually free groups
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201402)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 ... 
Life history characteristics in the sea trout (Salmo trutta L.) : insights from small catchments in Orkney
(HeriotWatt University Life Sciences, 201506)This thesis investigated life history characteristics in anadromous brown trout (Salmo trutta L.) populations inhabiting small coastal streams in the Orkney Islands, Scotland. The main findings were as follows. 1) A total ... 
Limit groups and MakaninRazborov diagrams for hyperbolic groups
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Science, 201006)This thesis gives a detailed description of Zlil Sela’s construction of MakaninRazborov diagrams which describe Hom(G, T), the set of all homomorphisms from G to T, where G is a finitely generated group and T is a ... 
Local and global bifurcation theory for multiparameter nonlinear eigenvalue problems
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 1995) 
Local and nonlocal mathematical modelling of signalling during embryonic development
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201208)Embryonic development requires cells to communicate as they arrange into the adult organs and tissues. The ability of cells to sense their environment, respond to signals and selforganise is of crucial importance. ... 
Local minimizers in the calculus of variations
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 1997) 
Local time stepping methods and discontinuous Galerkin methods applied to diffusion advection reaction equations
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201712)Partial diﬀerential equations (PDEs), especially the diﬀusion advection and re action equations (DAREs), are important tools in modeling complex phenomena, and they arise in many physics and engineering applications. Due ... 
Local travelling wave solutions and selfsimilar solutions for a green roof model
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201407)In this thesis we study travelling wave solutions and selfsimilar solutions for a green roof model and for some simpler models which are derived from that model. We focus on two limiting cases near a dry region and near ...
