    Matos, Margarida Gaspar de; Calmeiro, Luis; Batista-Foguet, Joan M.; Loureiro, Nuno; Mota, Jorge (Federação Brasileira de Terapias Cognitivas, 2007)
    Purpose: Adolescence can be associated with a tendency to engage in health damaging behaviour. The purpose of this study is to test whether cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors are present in this age group, and to ...
  • Hegemony 

    Law, Alex (Edinburgh University Press, 2005)
  • Helping formulate propositions in forensic DNA analysis 

    Buckleton, John; Bright, Jo-Anne; Taylor, Duncan; Evett, Ian; Hicks, Tacha; Jackson, Graham; Curran, James M. (Elsevier, 2014-07)
    The Bayesian paradigm is the preferred approach to evidence interpretation. It requires the evaluation of the probability of the evidence under at least two propositions. The value of the findings (i.e., our LR) will depend ...
  • Heterogeneity in susceptible–infected–removed (SIR) epidemics on lattices 

    Neri, Franco M.; Perez-Reche, Francisco J.; Taraskin, Sergei N.; Gilligan, Christopher A. (The Royal Society, 2011-02)
    The percolation paradigm is widely used in spatially explicit epidemic models where disease spreads between neighbouring hosts. It has been successful in identifying epidemic thresholds for invasion, separating non-invasive ...

    O'Callaghan, Simone; Speed, Chris (The Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts (ISEA), 2011)
    This paper explores storytelling methods to follow the lives of objects from their first inception to the narratives they collect along the way. It is part of TOTeM[1] a £1.39M research project based around the “Internet ...
  • High intensity training improves health and physical function in middle aged adults 

    Adamson, Simon; Lorimer, Ross; Cobley, James N.; Lloyd, Ray; Babraj, John A. (MDPI, 2014-05-12)
    High intensity training (HIT) is effective at improving health; however, it is unknown whether HIT also improves physical function. This study aimed to determine whether HIT improves metabolic health and physical function ...
  • High quality electron beams from a laser wakefield accelerator

    Wiggins, S. M.; Shanks, R. P.; Issac, R. C.; Welsh, G. H.; Anania, M. P.; Brunetti, E.; Vieux, G.; Cipiccia, C.; Ersfeld, B.; Islam, M. R.; Burgess, R. T. L.; Manahan, G.; Aniculaesei, C.; Gillespie, W. A.; MacLeod, Allan M.; Jaroszynski, D. A. (Optical Society of America, 2010-07-01)
    Very stable, high quality electron beams (current ~ 10 kA, energy spread < 1%, emittance ~ 1π mm mrad) have been generated in a laser-plasma accelerator driven by 25 TW femtosecond laser pulses.
  • High-intensity cycling training: the effect of work-to-rest intervals on running performance measures 

    Kavaliauskas, Mykolas; Aspe, Rodrigo R.; Babraj, John A. (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2015-08)
    The work-to-rest ratio during cycling-based high-intensity interval training (HIT) could be important in regulating physiological and performance adaptations. We sought to determine the effectiveness of cycling-based HIT ...
  • High-precision evaluation of the Bessel functions via Hadamard series 

    Paris, Richard B. (Elsevier, 2009-02-01)
    We present a method of high-precision calculation of the Bessel functions using Hadamard series. Such series are absolutely convergent expansions involving the normalised incomplete gamma function [formula missing] and ...
  • Higher education & personal change in prisoners 

    Reuss, Anne Marie; Wilson, Anne (University of Leeds, 1997)
    This thesis concerns the paradox of Higher Education in prisons - paradox because the aims, practices, ideals and ideologies of the former are recognisably at odds with those of the latter, whose concern is essentially ...
  • Higher education change and its managers: alternative constructions 

    Hotho, Sabine (SAGE, 2013-05)
    This article is based on a case study conducted in the context of UK higher education change. The article argues that ‘change’ is a construct created in discourses of change policy and change management, and resulting in ...
  • A holistic approach to Concentration Assessment of hazards in the risk assessment of landfill leachate 

    Butt, T. E.; Oduyemi, Kehinde O. K. (Elsevier, 2003-01)
    Risk assessment is a new research area. The risk assessment research area deals with a wide range of issues other than landfills. Examples of these issues are Radiation, Food Industry, Ecology, Epidemiology, etc. The authors ...
  • Holistic versus featural facial composite systems for people with mild intellectual disabilities 

    Gawrylowicz, Julie; Gabbert, Fiona; Carson, Derek; Lindsay, William R.; Hancock, Peter J.B. (John Wiley and Sons, 2012)
