Qualitative analysis of some equations in contemporary continuum mechanics
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 1974) 
Quantum integrable systems and Schrodinger Eigenvalue problems
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 200809) 
Quantum spin chains with lattice supersymmetry
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201801)This thesis has studied spin chains with Lattice supersymmetry. Connections have been found between Lattice supersymmetry and integrability. In particular, the construction of lattice supercharge has been incorporated into ... 
Queueing network models for diskless workstation configurations
(HeriotWatt University Computer Science, 1991) 
Radial motion of elastic and viscoelastic bodies
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 1980) 
Rare events and stability for random walks and stochastic communication systems
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2006) 
Realtime people tracking in a camera network
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201211)Visual tracking is a fundamental key to the recognition and analysis of human behaviour. In this thesis we present an approach to track several subjects using multiple cameras in real time. The tracking framework employs ... 
Reasoning about correctness properties of a coordination programming language
(HeriotWatt University, 200903)Safety critical systems place additional requirements to the programming language used to implement them with respect to traditional environments. Examples of features that in uence the suitability of a programming ... 
Recognising and locating objects in two dimensional perspective views
(HeriotWatt University Computer Science, 1990) 
Recognizing complex faces and gaits via novel probabilistic models
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Science, 201010)In the field of computer vision, developing automated systems to recognize people under unconstrained scenarios is a partially solved problem. In unconstrained sce narios a number of common variations and complexities ... 
Reducible Dehnfilling 3manifolds and twobridge knotgroup representations
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2008) 
Reinforcement learning for trading dialogue agents in noncooperative negotiations
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201605)Recent advances in automating Dialogue Management have been mainly made in cooperative environments where the dialogue system tries to help a human to meet their goals. In noncooperative environments though, such as ... 
Relation modules and identities for presentations of inverse monoids
(Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201809)We investigate the Squier complexes of presentations of groups and inverse monoids using the theory semiregular, regular, and pseudoregular groupoids. Our main interest is the class of regular groupoids, and the new class ... 
Relaxation theorems in the calculus of variations
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 1980) 
Reliable massively parallel symbolic computing : fault tolerance for a distributed Haskell
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201312)As the number of cores in manycore systems grows exponentially, the number of failures is also predicted to grow exponentially. Hence massively parallel computations must be able to tolerate faults. Moreover new approaches ... 
The representation of effectiveness in management : an investigation into knowledge, meaning, and discourse
(HeriotWatt University Institute for Computer Based Learning, 199201)The thesis investigates the representation of knowledge and meaning in management, with special reference to 'effectiveness' in library and information services. It is argued that management is a socially constructed and ... 
Requirement elicitation for enterprise information systems : a process based on metamodel of Zachman framework developed using ontologies
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Science, 201105)An enterprise information system distinguishes itself from other types of software as it is developed to facilitate the operation of an organization hence its requirement reflects its strategies, plans, organizations, ...

(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2004) 
Reserving, pricing and hedging for guaranteed annuity options
(HeriotWatt University Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics, 2001) 
Rigidity theory for circle homeomorphisms with singularities
(HeriotWatt University Mathematics, 2002)
