  • The discrete analogue of Laplace’s method 

    Paris, Richard B. (Elsevier, 2011-05)
    We give a justification of the discrete analogue of Laplace’s method applied to the asymptotic estimation of sums consisting of positive terms. The case considered is the series related to the hypergeometric function ...
  • Discrete-time least-squares Padé order reduction: a stability preserving method 

    Lucas, T. Nigel; Smith, I. D. (Sage Publications, 1998-02)
    A new stability preservation property is proved for the least-squares Padé order reduction method when applied to discrete-time systems. It is shown that the property depends on which free reduced model parameter is chosen ...
  • Discrimination of bladder cancer cells from normal urothelial cells with high specificity and sensitivity: combined application of atomic force microscopy and modulated Raman spectroscopy

  • Dishonest behavior at self-service checkouts 

    Creighton, Susan; Johnson, Graham; Robertson, Paul; Law, Jan; Szymkowiak, Andrea (Springer, 2015-07-21)
    Self-service technology could be argued as creating less personal transactions when compared to traditional checkouts involving a sales assistant for the entire transaction process, which may affect customer behavior. The ...

    Published Proceedings of the Worldwide Distilled Spirits Conference: new horizons: energy, environment and enlightenment, held in Edinburgh in September 2008. The distilled spirits industry is rapidly embracing new ...
  • The distinguishing function of European identity: attitudes towards and visions of Europe and the European Union among young Scottish adults 

    Thorpe, Christopher (Taylor & Francis, 2008-12)
    This paper brings Bourdieu's trilogy of theoretical concepts habitus, capital and field to bear on the concept of European identity. By employing a framework analysis of secondary qualitative data in the form of in-depth ...
  • Diversity of yeasts and yeast fermentation systems 

    Walker, Graeme M. (Society for Industrial Microbiology, 2009-11)
    Yeasts have been exploited, albeit unwittingly, in spontaneous fermentations for millennia. However, it was not until the pioneering research of Pasteur (France) and Hansen (Denmark) over 100 years ago that the involvement ...
  • Divided attention selectively impairs memory for self-relevant information 

    Turk, David J.; Brady-van den Bos, Mirjam; Collard, Philip; Gillespie-Smith, Karri; Conway, Martin A.; Cunningham, Sheila J. (Springer-Verlag, 2013-05)
    Information that is relevant to oneself tends to be remembered more than information that relates to other people, but the role of attention in eliciting this “self-reference effect” is unclear. In the present study, we ...
  • Do addressees adopt the perspective of the speaker? 

    Pickering, Martin J.; McLean, Janet F.; Gambi, Chiara (Elsevier, 2012-06-23)
    Do interlocutors interpret language as though they were “in the shoes of” the speaker? People can interpret utterances describing actions from an internal perspective (as though they are performing the action), or from an ...
  • Do community alarm users want telecare? 

    Brownsell, S. J.; Bradley, David A.; Bragg, R.; Catlin, P.; Carlier, J. (Royal Society of Medicine Press, 2000-08)
    Previous surveys have suggested that community alarm users are in general satisfied with the service provided. However, there is also evidence that users would like additional options that could be provided by a telecare ...
  • Do early interviews affect children's long-term event recall? 

    Pipe, Margaret-Ellen; Sutherland, Rachel; Webster, Nalini; Jones, Carolyn; La Rooy, David J. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2004-11)

  • 'Do we look like boy racers?' The role of the folk devil in contemporary moral panics 

    Lumsden, Karen (SAGE Publications, 2009-01-31)

  • Do we need to rethink guidance on repeated interviews? 

    La Rooy, David J.; Katz, Carmit; Malloy, Lindsay C.; Lamb, Michael E. (American Psychological Association, 2010-11)

  • Do you know what I know? The impact of participant role in children's referential communication 

    Branigan, Holly P.; Bell, Jenny; McLean, Janet F. (Frontiers Media, 2016-02-23)

  • Does countershading impede efficient visual search? 

    Penacchio, Olivier; Lovell, P. George; Sanghera, Simon; Cuthill, Innes; Ruxton, Graeme; Harris, Julie (Sage, 2016)
    Shading is a central cue to shape perception in humans. There is evidence that other animals use shading to apprehend shape. If some predators are able to use shading to detect/evaluate preys, it makes sense to evolve ...
  • Does light exposure make plant litter more degradable? 

    Foereid, Bente; Bellarby, Jessica; Meier-Augenstein, Wolfram; Kemp, Helen (Springer, 2010-08)
