The asymptotics of a generalised Beta function
(Hilaris, 2015)We consider the generalised Beta function introduced by Chaudhry et al. [J. Comp. Appl. Math. 78 (1997) 19–32] defined by B(x, y; p) = ʃ 1 0 tx−1(1 − t)y−1 exp [−p / 4t(1 − t)] dt, where ℜ(p) > 0 and the parameters x and ... 
The asymptotics of a new exponential sum
(Elsevier, 20090101)The absolutely convergent exponential sum [formula missing] is studied for m→+∞ and fixed p when the parameter θ is allowed to become large such that θ/m remains finite. This situation corresponds, in general, to the trace ... 
Asymptotics of integrals of Hermite polynomials
(Hikari Ltd, 2010)Integrals involving products of Hermite polynomials with the weight factor exp (−x2) over the interval (−∞,∞) are considered. A result of Azor, Gillis and Victor (SIAM J. Math. Anal. 13 (1982) 879–890] is derived by ... 
Asymptotics of the Gauss hypergeometric function with large parameters, I
(Element d.o.o., 2013)We obtain asymptotic expansions for the Gauss hypergeometric function F(a+ε1λ,b+ε2λ;c+ε3λ;z) as λ →∞ when the εj are ﬁnite by an application of the method of steepest descents, thereby extending previous results corresponding ... 
Asymptotics of the Gauss hypergeometric function with large parameters, II
(Element d.o.o., 2013)We obtain asymptotic expansions by application of the method of steepest descents for the Gauss hypergeometric function F(a+ε1λ,b+ε2λ;c+λ;z) as λ → ∞ when 0<ε1 <1 and ε1 >1 where, without loss of generality, it is supposed ... 
The asymptotics of the generalised Hermite–Bell polynomials
(Elsevier, 20091015)The Hermite–Bell polynomials are defined by [formula missing] for n=0,1,2,… and integer r≥2 and generalise the classical Hermite polynomials corresponding to r=2. We obtain an asymptotic expansion for [formula missing] as ... 
The asymptotics of the mittagleffler polynomials
(Element d.o.o., 2012)We investigate the asymptotic behaviour of the MittagLeffler polynomials Gn(z) for large n and z, where z is a complex variable satisfying 0 arg z 12 π . A summary of the asymptotic properties of Gn(ix) for real ... 
The asymptotics of the mittagleffler polynomials
(Journal of classical analysis, 2012)We investigate the asymptotic behaviour of the MittagLeffler polynomials Gn(z) for large n and z, where z is a complex variable satisfying 0 arg z 12 π . A summary of the asymptotic properties of Gn(ix) for real ... 
ATM in focus: a damage sensor and cancer target
(Dundee Science Press, 20121130)The ability of a cell to conserve and maintain its native DNA sequence is fundamental for the survival and normal functioning of the whole organism and protection from cancer development. Here we review recently obtained ... 
Atmospheric aerosol source identification and estimates of source contributions to air pollution in Dundee, UK
(Elsevier, 200304)Anthropogenic aerosol (PM10) emission sources sampled at an air quality monitoring station in Dundee have been analysed. However, the information on local natural aerosol emission sources was unavailable. A method that ... 
Atomic force microscopic investigation of commercial pressure sensitive adhesives for forensic analysis
(Elsevier, 201107)Pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA), such as those used in packaging and adhesive tapes, are very often encountered in forensic investigations. In criminal activities, packaging tapes may be used for sealing packets containing ... 
Atomic force microscopic study of the effects of ethanol on yeast cell surface morphology
(Blackwell Publishing, 200602)The detrimental effects of ethanol toxicity on the cell surface morphology of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (strain NCYC 1681) and Schizosaccharomyces pombe (strain DVPB 1354) were investigated using an atomic force microscope ... 
Atomic force microscopic study of the influence of physical stresses on Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Schizosaccharomyces pombe
(Blackwell Publishing, 200601)Morphological changes in the cell surfaces of the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (strain NCYC 1681), and the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe (strain DVPB 1354), in response to thermal and osmotic stresses, ... 
Attachment, childhood adversity, emotional problems and personality disorder in offenders with mild intellectual disability
(Abertay University Social and Health Sciences, 201112)The aim of this research is to examine attachment in offenders with mild intellectual disability. Insecure attachment is evidenced as a developmental risk factor with regard to antisociality, in the mainstream population. ... 
An attributable cost model for a telecare system using advanced community alarms
(Royal Society of Medicine Press Limited, 200104)We have developed an attributable cost model for a citybased telecare scheme involving 11,618 community alarm users. The equipment was assumed to cost 5001000 per installation, compared with 175 for the current system. ... 
Au fait law placements: an emerged reality or a popular trend in contemporary education?
(Emerald, 2015)Purpose Enhancing student employability and bridging the gap between theory and practice in law education requires a more multifaceted approach than the traditional mix of lectures, tutorials and simulations. Law placements ... 
Audio games: investigation of the potential through prototype development
(SpringerVerlag, 20150724)This article discusses the potential of audio games based on the evaluation of three projects: a storydriven audio roleplaying game (RPG), an interactive audiobook with RPG elements, and a set of casual soundbased games. ... 
Automated counterterrorism
(IEEE, 2013)We present a holistic systems view of automated intelligence analysis for counterterrorism with focus on the behavioural attributes of terrorist groups. 
Automated statistical method to align 2D chemical maps with 3D Xray computed microtomographic images of soils
(Elsevier, 201109)Recent 2dimensional measurements reveal that soils are chemically very heterogeneous at nanometric and micrometric scales. Direct measurement techniques are still lacking to extend these observations to 3 dimensions. ...
