Nanooptical studies of superconducting nanowire singlephoton detectors
(HeriotWatt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 201111)uperconducting singlephoton detectors based on superconducting nanowires offer broadband singlephoton sensitivity, from visible to midinfrared wavelengths. They have attracted particular attention due to their promising ... 
Nearest neighbour epidemic processes
(HeriotWatt University Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics, 1994) 
New developments to Skalpel : a type error slicing method for explaining errors in type and effect systems
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201410)Type error reports provide programmers with a description of type errors which exist in their code. Such descriptions are frequently of poor quality, as they often present just one point in the program, rather than all ... 
A new routing protocol for ad hoc wireless networks design, implementation and performance evaluation
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Science, 201108)A collection of mobile nodes can form a multihop radio network with a dynamic topology and without the need for any infrastructure such as base stations or wired network. Such a Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) maintain ... 
A new technique for intelligent web personal recommendation
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201111)Personal recommendation systems nowadays are very important in web applications because of the available huge volume of information on the World Wide Web, and the necessity to save users’ time, and provide appropriate ... 
New techniques for Arabic document classification
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201309)Text classification (TC) concerns automatically assigning a class (category) label to a text document, and has increasingly many applications, particularly in the domain of organizing, for browsing in large document ... 
Nonlocal models of cellcell interactions in development
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Science, 201104)This thesis explores pattern formation caused by cellcell interactions in animal tissues during development, whether that patterning be natural or experimental. We produce three nonlocal integrodifferential equation ... 
Nonassociative deformations of nongeometric flux backgrounds and field theory
(HeriotWatt University, 201410)In this thesis we describe the nonassociative geometry probed by closed strings in at nongeometric R ux backgrounds, and develop suitable quantization techniques. For this, we propose a Courant sigmamodel on an ... 
Nonassociative deformations of nongeometric flux backgrounds and field theory
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics and Computer Sciences, 201410)In this thesis we describe the nonassociative geometry probed by closed strings in flat nongeometric Rflux backgrounds, and develop suitable quantization techniques. For this, we propose a Courant sigmamodel on an ... 
Nonassociative geometry in representation categories of quasiHopf algebras
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201610)It has been understood that quantum spacetime may be nongeometric in the sense that its phase space algebra is noncommutative and nonassociative. It has therefore been of interest to develop a formalism to describe ... 
Nonlinear dynamics of molecular and atomic chains
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 1998) 
The nonlinear PochhammerChree problem
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 1981) 
Novel Bayesian inference in epidemics − model assessment and integrating epidemiological and genetic data
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201503)Work in this thesis represents advances in addressing two key challenges in epidemiological and ecological modelling: the lack of an effective and easily deployable modelassessment tool and a statistically sound joint ... 
Novel moment closure approximations to nonlinear stochastic models
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2005) 
A novel soft orthotic physiotherapy device for stroke rehabilitation
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201805)There is a growing problem in stroke rehabilitation where, due to an increasing number of stroke suﬀerers and the proportion of specialists not increasing to compensate, patients are being relied upon to perform a greater ... 
Novelty detection by autoassociation with application to radio communication signal recognition
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2007) 
Null Lagrangians, weak continuity and variational problems of arbitrary order
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 1983) 
Numerical algorithms for the calculation of finite time ruin probabilities in generalisations of the classical risk model
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2004) 
Numerical analysis of coagulationfragmentation equations
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 1997) 
Numerical analysis of fast and slow transients in gas transmission networks.
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 1997)
