  • Gaming techniques and the product development process: commonalities and cross-applications 

    Wodehouse, Andrew; Bradley, David A. (Inderscience, 2006)
    The use of computer-based tools is now firmly embedded within the product development process, providing a wide range of uses from visualisation to analysis. However, the specialisation required to make effective use of ...

    In the United Kingdom it has been just over ten years since Personal development Planning (PDP) was proposed by the National Commission into Higher Education (Dearing, 1997) and since then it has become a central feature ...
  • Gender relations in higher education: exploring lecturers' perceptions of student evaluations of teaching 

    Carson, Lloyd (Routledge, 2001-12)
    Quantitative evidence suggests that higher education students may exhibit gender bias against women when evaluating the teaching of male and female faculty. Qualitative research in this area has been concerned with the ...
  • Gendered performances in a male-dominated subculture: 'girl racers', car modification and the quest for masculinity 

    Lumsden, Karen (SAGE Publications, 2010-08-31)
    This paper discusses female participation in the male-dominated 'boy racer' culture. Little is known about girls who join male-dominated subcultures while studies of car cultures have tended to describe girls as peripheral ...
  • Gendering the machine: preferred virtual assistant gender and realism in self-service 

    Payne, Jeunese; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Robertson, Paul; Johnson, Graham (Springer, 2013)
    A virtual agent is a human-like character that is designed to assist users in interactions with technology and virtual worlds. Research into the preferred visual characteristics of a virtual agent has focused on education-based ...
  • Gene therapy: the potential applicability of gene transfer technology to the human germline 

    Smith, Kevin R. (Ivyspring International Publisher, 2004-06)
    The theoretical possibility of applying gene transfer methodologies to the human germline is explored. Transgenic methods for genetically manipulating embryos may in principle be applied to humans. In particular, microinjection ...
  • Gene therapy: theoretical and bioethical concepts 

    Smith, Kevin R. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam, 2003-07)
    Gene therapy holds great promise. Somatic gene therapy has the potential to treat a wide range of disorders, including inherited conditions, cancers, and infectious diseases. Early progress has already been made in the ...
  • Gene transfer in higher animals: theoretical considerations and key concepts 

    Smith, Kevin R. (Elsevier, 2002-10)
    Gene transfer technology provides the ability to genetically manipulate the cells of higher animals. Gene transfer permits both germline and somatic alterations. Such genetic manipulation is the basis for animal transgenesis ...
  • A general formulation of the reversible stress tensor for a nonlocal fluid 

    Zhu, Jiujiang; Crawford, John W.; Palfreyman, John W. (Elsevier, 2013-09)
    The nonlocal stress tensor is an indispensable constitutive equation required to close the thermodynamic system of nonlocal fluid dynamics. A nonlocal functional variational principle is employed to derive a general ...
  • A general random walk model for the leptokurtic distribution of organism movement: Theory and application 

    Zhang, Xiaoxian; Johnson, Scott N.; Crawford, John W.; Gregory, Peter J.; Young, Iain M. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam, 2007-01)
    The movement of organisms is usually leptokurtic in which some individuals move long distances while the majority remains at or near the area they are released. There has been extensive research into the origin of such ...
  • A generalisation of an expansion for the Riemann zeta function involving incomplete gamma functions 

    Paris, Richard B. (Hikari, 2009)
    We derive an expansion for the Riemann zeta function ζ(s) involving incomplete gamma functions with their second argument proportional to n2p, where n is the summation index and p is a positive integer. The possibility is ...
  • Generalised capacity curves for stability and plasticity: application and limitations 

    Doerich, Cornelia; Rotter, J. Michael (Elsevier, 2011-09)
    In recent decades, the resistance of a structure has been thought of as well defined by the outcome of a geometrically and materially nonlinear analysis with explicitly modelled imperfections (GMNIA). But when this is the ...
  • A generalised Kummer-type transformation for the pFp(x) hypergeometric function 

    Miller, A. R.; Paris, Richard B. (University of Toronto Press, 2012)
    In a recent paper, Miller derived a Kummer-type transformation for the generalised hypergeometric function pFp(x) when pairs of parameters differ by unity, by means of a reduction formula for a certain Kampé de Fériet ...
  • Generalization of two theorems due to Ramanujan 

    Kim, Yong S.; Rathie, Arjun K.; Paris, Richard B. (Taylor & Francis, 2013)
    The aim in this paper is to provide generalizations of two interesting entries in Ramanujan's notebooks that relate sums involving the derivatives of a function (t) evaluated at 0 and 1. The generalizations obtained are ...
