Incomplete information in a deductive database
(HeriotWatt University Computer Science, 1989) 
An incremental clustering and associative learning architecture for intelligent robotics
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201508)The ability to learn from the environment and memorise the acquired knowledge is essential for robots to become autonomous and versatile artificial companions. This thesis proposes a novel learning and memory architecture ... 
An individual life history model for heart disease, stroke and death : structure, parameterisation and applications
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2008) 
Inference and experimental design for percolation and random graph models.
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Science, 201006)The problem of optimal arrangement of nodes of a random weighted graph is studied in this thesis. The nodes of graphs under study are fixed, but their edges are random and established according to the so called ... 
Inference and prediction in plant populations using data augmentation within a Bayesian framework
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2006) 
Inference for epidemics and effect of reporting processes
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201205)The objective of this thesis is to study the e ect of underreporting in epidemics. In particular, there are two broad questions we investigate: In the situation of underreporting in epidemics, what would happen if ... 
The influence of cognitive styles on the design of adaptive webbased learning materials
(HeriotWatt University, 200905)This research addresses the issues of adaptation and personalisation of the computer interface for Webbased learning materials taking into consideration key characteristics of learners and particularly their cognitive ... 
The influence of seasonal forcing on the population dynamics of ecological systems
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201406)Seasonal forcing represents a pervasive source of environmental variability and it has been shown to be important in generating the cycles observed in many ecological and epidemiological systems. We use a combination of ... 
Initial design considerations for highspeed retrieval techniques in Prolog and text data base machines
(HeriotWatt University Computer Science, 1985) 
Initial design studies for a highspeed distributed prolog database machine
(HeriotWatt University Computer Science, 1986) 
An integrated approach to high integrity software verification.
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 201006)Computer software is developed through software engineering. At its most precise, software engineering involves mathematical rigour as formal methods. High integrity software is associated with safety critical and security ... 
Integrating distributed data streams
(HeriotWatt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2007) 
Integrity constraints in deductive databases
(HeriotWatt University Computer Science, 1990)A deductive database is a logic program that generalises the concept of a relational database. Integrity constraints are properties that the data of a database are required to satisfy and in the context of logic programming, ... 
Interactive directed graph analysis methods for a digital hardware design system
(HeriotWatt University Computer Science, 1976)
