  • 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 ...
  • Generalizations of two infinite product formulas 

    Chen, Chao-Ping; Paris, Richard B. (Taylor & Francis, 2014)
    Two interesting infinite product formulas were presented by Choi, Lee and Srivastava [A generalization of Wilf's formula. Kodai Math J. 2003;26:44–48], who generalized an infinite product formula posed by Wilf as a problem ...
  • A genetic algorithm based economic dispatch (GAED) with environmental constraint optimisation 

    King, David J.; Özveren, Cüneyt Süheyl; Warsono (VDE, 2011)
    The role of renewable energy in power systems is becoming more significant due to the increasing cost of fossil fuels and climate change concerns. However, the inclusion of Renewable Energy Generators (REG), such as wind ...
  • Genetic, ophthalmic, morphometric and histopathological analysis of the Retinopathy Globe Enlarged (rge) chicken 

    Inglehearn, Chris F.; Morrice, David R.; Lester, Douglas H.; Robertson, Graeme W.; Mohamed, Moin D.; Simmons, Ian; Downey, Louise M.; Thaung, Caroline; Bridges, Leslie R.; Paton, Ian R.; Smith, Jacqueline; Petersen-Jones, Simon; Hocking, Paul M.; Burt, David W. (Emory University, 2003-07-01)
    Purpose: To identify the locus responsible for rge (retinopathy globe enlarged) in chickens and further characterise the rge phenotype. Methods: A colony of chickens carrying the rge mutation was rederived from a single ...
  • Genomic and genetic analyses of diversity and plant interactions of Pseudomonas fluorescens 

    Silby, Mark W.; Cerdeño-Tárraga, Ana M.; Vernikos, Georgios S.; Giddens, Stephen R.; Jackson, Robert W.; Preston, Gail M.; Zhang, Xue-Xian; Moon, Christina D.; Gehrig, Stefanie M.; Godfrey, Scott A. C.; Knight, Christopher G.; Malone, Jacob G.; Robinson, Zena; Spiers, Andrew J.; Harris, Simon; Challis, Gregory L.; Yaxley, Alice M; Harris, David; Seeger, Kathy; Murphy, Lee; Rutter, Simon; Squares, Rob; Quail, Michael A.; Saunders, Elizabeth; Mavromatis, Konstantinos; Brettin, Thomas S.; Bentley, Stephen D.; Hothersall, Joanne; Stephens, Elton; Thomas, Christopher M.; Parkhill, Julian; Levy, Stuart B.; Rainey, Paul B.; Thomson, Nicholas R. (BioMed Central, 2009-05)
    Background: Pseudomonas fluorescens are common soil bacteria that can improve plant health through nutrient cycling, pathogen antagonism and induction of plant defenses. The genome sequences of strains SBW25 and Pf0-1 were ...
  • Geography of missing adults 

    Woolnough, Penny; Stevenson, Olivia; Parr, Hester; Fyfe, Nicholas R. (Routledge, 2016-10-06)

  • Gestures and multimodal input 

    Keates, Simeon; Robinson, Peter (Taylor & Francis, 1999)
    For users with motion impairments, the standard keyboard and mouse arrangement for computer access often presents problems. Other approaches have to be adopted to overcome this. In this paper, we will describe the development ...
  • Getting Wrinkly Spreaders to demonstrate evolution in schools 

    Spiers, Andrew J. (Elsevier, 2014-06)
    Understanding evolution is crucial to modern biology,but most teachers would assume that practical demonstrations of evolution in school laboratories are unfeasible. However, perhaps they have not heard of ‘evolution in a ...
  • The ghost of Patrick Geddes: civics as applied sociology 

    Law, Alex (University of Surrey, 2005)
    In 1904 and 1905 Patrick Geddes (1905, 1906) read his famed, but today little-read, two-part paper, 'Civics: as Applied Sociology', to the first meetings of the British Sociological Society. Geddes is often thought of as ...
