  • Impediments to Democratization in Iraq 

    Alkifaey, Hamid Jaber Ali (University of ExeterDepartment of Politics, 2016-12-14)
    The basic contention of this study is that democratization in post-2003 Iraq has faltered due to a multiplicity of reasons that include the role of religion in politics, lack of democratic tradition, weak sponsor commitment, ...
  • Battle for Music: Music and British Wartime Propaganda 1935-1945 

    Morris, John Vincent (University of ExeterEnglish, 2011-05-25)
    The use of classical music as a tool of propaganda in Britain during the War can be seen to have been an effective deployment both of the German masters and of a new spirit of England in the furtherance of British values ...
  • The Battle for Spaces and Places in Russia's Civil War 

    Rendle, Matthew (Wiley, 2016)
    After the October Revolution, the Bolsheviks needed to battle to control Russia’s urban and rural spaces to win the war, exert state power and transform mentalities. This article argues that revolutionary tribunals played ...
  • Battle of background leakage assessment for Water Networks (BBLAWN) at WDSA conference 2014 

    Giustolisi, O.; Berardi, L.; Laucelli, D.; Savic, Dragan; Walski, T.; Brunone, B. (Elsevier, 2014)
    The Battle of Background Leakage Assessment for Water Networks (BBLAWN) is the fifth in a series of "Battle Competitions" dating back to the Battle of the Water Networks (BWN) in 1985 and, more recently, the Battle of the ...

    Marchi, A.; Salomons, E; Ostfeld, A.; Kapelan, Zoran; Simpson, A; Zecchin, A. C.; Maier, H.R.; Wu, Z; Elsayed, S; Song, Y; Walski, T.; Stokes, C; Wu, W; Dandy, G.C.; Alvisi, S; Creaco, Enrico; Franchini, Marco; Saldarriaga, J; Páez, D; Hernandez, David; Bohórquez, J; Bent, R; Coffrin, C; Judi, D; McPherson, T; van Hentenryck, P; Matos, J; Monteiro, A; Matias, N; Yoo, D; Lee, H; Kim, J; Iglesias-Rey, P; Martínez-Solano, F; Mora-Meliá, D; Ribelles-Aguilar, J; Guidolin, Michele; Fu, Guangtao; Reed, P.M.; Wang, Qi; Liu, H; McClymont, K; Johns, Matthew B.; Keedwell, Edward; Kandiah, V; Jasper, M; Drake, K; Shafiee, E; Barandouzi, M; Berglund, A; Brill, D; Mahinthakumar, G; Ranjithan, R; Zechman, E; Morley, Mark S.; Tricarico, Carla; de Marinis, G.; Tolson, B; Khedr, A; Asadzadeh, M (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2013-05-18)
    The Battle of the Water Networks II (BWN-II) is the latest of a series of competitions related to the design and operation of water distribution systems (WDSs) undertaken within the Water Distribution Systems Analysis ...
  • Battle of Waterloo Peepshow 

    Rossiter (2009-06-24)
  • A battle of wits? Problem-solving abilities in invasive Eastern grey squirrels and native Eurasian red squirrels 

    Chow, PKY; Lurz, PWW; Lea, SEG (Elsevier Masson, 2018-02-19)
    Behavioural flexibility has been argued to be an evolutionarily favourable trait that helps invasive species to establish themselves in non-native environments. Few studies, however, have compared the level of flexibility ...
  • Battleship Potemkin 

    Lorrimer Publishing; Eisenstein, Sergei; Aitken, Gillon R. (2009-11-10)
  • Baudelaire and Other People 

    Scott, MC; Wettlaufer, AK (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2018-04-08)
  • Baudelaire’s “L’Étranger” and the Limits of Mind-Reading

  • Baudrillard's nihilism and the end of theory 

    King, Anthony (Telos Press, 1998)
  • The Bayesian Decision Tree Technique with a Sweeping Strategy 

    Schetinin, Vitaly; Fieldsend, Jonathan E.; Partridge, Derek; Krzanowski, Wojtek J.; Everson, Richard M.; Bailey, Trevor C.; Hernandez, Adolfo (2004)
    The uncertainty of classification outcomes is of crucial importance for many safety critical applications including, for example, medical diagnostics. In such applications the uncertainty of classification can be reliably ...
  • Bayesian detection of planetary transits. A modified version of the Gregory-Loredo method for Bayesian periodic signal detection 

    Aigrain, Suzanne; Favata, F. (EDP Sciences, 2002)
    The detection of planetary transits in stellar photometric light-curves is poised to become the main method for finding substantial numbers of terrestrial planets. The French-European mission COROT (foreseen for launch in ...
  • Bayesian estimation and classification with incomplete data using mixture models 

    Zhang, Jufen; Everson, Richard M. (IEEE, 2004)
    Reasoning from data in practical problems is frequently hampered by missing observations. Mixture models provide a powerful general semi-parametric method for modelling densities and have close links to radial basis function ...
  • A Bayesian expected error reduction approach to Active Learning 

    Fredlund, Richard (University of ExeterEngineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, 2011-04-28)
    There has been growing recent interest in the field of active learning for binary classification. This thesis develops a Bayesian approach to active learning which aims to minimise the objective function on which the learner ...
  • A Bayesian Framework for Active Learning 

    Fredlund, Richard; Everson, Richard M.; Fieldsend, Jonathan E. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010)
    We describe a Bayesian framework for active learning for non-separable data, which incorporates a query density to explicitly model how new data is to be sampled. The model makes no assumption of independence between queried ...
  • A Bayesian framework for verification and recalibration of ensemble forecasts: How uncertain is NAO predictability? 

    Siegert, Stefan; Stephenson, David B.; Sansom, Philip G.; Scaife, Adam A.; Eade, Rosie; Arribas, Alberto (, 2015-04-08)
    Predictability estimates of ensemble prediction systems are uncertain due to limited numbers of past forecasts and observations. To account for such uncertainty, this paper proposes a Bayesian inferential framework that ...
  • Bayesian history matching of complex infectious disease models using emulation: a tutorial and a case study on HIV in Uganda 

    Andrianakis, Ioannis; Vernon, Ian R.; McCreesh, Nicky; McKinley, Trevelyan J.; Oakley, Jeremy E.; Nsubuga, Rebecca N.; Goldstein, Michael; White, Richard G. (Public Library of Science, 2015-01)
    Advances in scientific computing have allowed the development of complex models that are being routinely applied to problems in disease epidemiology, public health and decision making. The utility of these models depends ...
