  • Feedforward and feedback regulation of the MAPK and PI3K oscillatory circuit in breast cancer 

    Hu, Huizhong; Goltsov, Alexey; Bown, James L.; Sims, Andrew H.; Langdon, Simon P.; Harrison, David J.; Faratian, Dana (Elsevier, 2013-01)
    Although the theoretical possibility of oscillations in MAPK signalling has long been described, experimental validation has proven more elusive. In this study we observed oscillations in MAPK and PI3K signalling in breast ...
  • Feeding back to feed forward: formative assessment as a platform for effective learning 

    Wheatley, Lucy; McInch, Alex; Fleming, Scott; Lord, Rhiannon (UKnowledge, 2015-02)
    Students construct meaning through relevant learning activities (Biggs, 2003) which are largely determined by the type, amount, and timing of feedback (Carless, 2006). The aim of the present study was to develop a greater ...
  • Female reproductive strategy predicts preferences for sexual dimorphism in male faces 

    Moore, Fhionna R.; Law Smith, Miriam; Cassidy, Clare; Perrett, David (Akadémiai Kiadó, 2009-09)
    The aim of the current studies was to test an assumption that variation in female preferences for sexually dimorphic male facial characteristics reflects strategic optimisation of investment in offspring. A negative ...
  • Female status predicts female mate preferences across nonindustrial societies 

    Moore, Fhionna R.; Cassidy, Clare (SAGE Publications, 2007)
    Most studies demonstrating the contribution of economic constraints on women to sex differences in mate preferences have used samples from postindustrial societies with similar social structures. The authors investigate ...
  • Fermentation of stalk juices from different Nigerian sorghum cultivars to ethanol 

    Nasidi, Muhammad; Agu, Reginald; Deeni, Yusuf Y.; Walker, Graeme M. (De Gruyter, 2013-08)
    For improved production of ethanol from sorghum stalk juice fermentation, cultivation location and cultivar type are important factors to consider. In the present study, SSV2 and KSV8 sorghum cultivars were cultivated in ...
  • Fiddler Tam: the life of Thomas Erskine, 6th Earl of Kelli 

    McAlpine, Kenneth B.; Moffat, Maggie; Natanson, Jan (Pittenweem Arts Festival, 2008-08)
    Fiddler Tam is a musical costume pageant that explores the life and music of Thomas Erskine, the 6th Earl of Kellie. Directed by, and featuring the elaborate costumes of designer Maggie Moffat, Fiddler Tam plays out in his ...
  • Film and cinema: sets and techniques 

    Panay, Andrew (Routledge, 2004)
  • Filtration and transport of heavy metals in graphene oxide enabled sand columns 

    Ding, Zhuhong; Hu, Xin; Morales, Verónica L.; Gao, Bin (Elsevier, 2014-12-01)
    A fixed-bed sand column with graphene oxide (GO) layer was used to remove heavy metals (Cu(II) and Pb(II)) from an aqueous solution injected under steady flow. Due to the time constrained kinetic process of heavy metal ...
  • Finding roots by deflated polynomial approximation 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Elsevier, 1990)
    A numerical technique is presented which evaluates the roots of polynomials with real coefficients. Features of the method include no complex arithmetic requirements, no need to guess at initial quadratic factor estimates, ...
  • Finding roots of polynomials by using the Routh array 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1996-08)
    A robust method for finding the roots of polynomials using the Routh array is given. Certain multipoint approximation properties of the array are clarified, which enable a simple criterion to be used in the root-finding ...
  • Finite deformation in ideal magnetohydrodynamics 

    MacTaggart, David (EDP Sciences, 2012-06)
    Aims: In this paper we investigate the finite deformation of magnetic fields that can enable one to find complex analytical magnetohydrostatic (MHS) equilibria. These can be used as input to non-linear simulations. Methods: ...
  • First Person Shooter multiplayer game traffic analysis 

    Zhou, Qili; Miller, Colin J.; Bassilious, Victor (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2008-05)
    Internet delay is important for FPS games because it can determine who wins or loses a game. Network traffic for such games has been analysed using packet size and inter-packet time metrics fitting a statistical model. ...
  • The first year in higher education: engagement and empowerment 

    Moir, James (The International Journal of Learning, 2010)
    This paper considers what we mean by referring to empowerment in higher education (HE) with respect to student engagement and persistence (Barnett, 2007, 2009). This is considered from the point of view of how students ...
  • A flexible extended warranty and related optimal strategies 

    Jack, Nat; Murthy, D. N. P. (Palgrave Macmillan, 2007)
    The choice of extended warranties (EWs) currently available to consumers is extremely limited. Their EW purchase decisions have to be made at or very close to the time that they purchase the products and, at this point, ...
  • Flexible time-response matching in discrete model reduction 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Sage Publications, 2000-08)
    A simple way to match the time responses of the full- and reduced-order models at arbitrary sampling points is given for discrete-time systems. It is seen to be a natural extension of the Padé methods and is particularly ...
  • Flow state in self-paced and externally-paced performance contexts: an examination of the flow model 

    Koehn, Stefan; Morris, Tony; Watt, Anthony P. (Elsevier, 2013-11)
    Kimiecik and Stein's (1992) flow model proposed that personal and situational factors affect the experience of flow. Singer, 1988 and Singer, 2000 argued that different mental processes underlie self-initiated and reactive ...
  • Fluctuation of cognitive-emotional states during competition: an idiographic account 

    Calmeiro, Luis; Tenenbaum, Gershon (Universitat de les Illes Balears Servei de Publicacions, 2007)
    The purpose of this paper is to describe athletes’ cognitive-emotional processes during competitions through an idiographic and ecologically valid study method based on verbal protocols and event sequential analyses. A ...
  • Fluctuation properties of compound Poisson-Erlang Lévy processes 

    Paris, Richard B.; Vinogradov, Vladimir (Serials Publications, 2013-06)
    We derive an expression in terms of the Wright function for the density of the first-passage times (or FPT’s) for the Poisson-Erlang Levy processes. For Poisson-exponential processes, we establish an analogue of Zolotarev ...
  • Flux emergence within mature solar active regions 

    MacTaggart, David (EDP Sciences, 2011-07)
    Aims. Recent insterest in flux emergence within mature active regions has led to several observational studies. Our aim is to model such a scenario and investigate the evolution of the system. Methods. We solve the 3D ...
