  • Bias of arbitrators revisited 

    Nousia, KP (Sweet and Maxwell, 2018-09-03)
    International commercial arbitration lacks any universally recognized standard-setting body. Equally, no arbitral sets of worldwide etiquette rules nor any statutes and conventions containing any specific exist - other ...
  • A bias-corrected decomposition of the Brier score 

    Ferro, Christopher A.T.; Fricker, Thomas E. (Royal Meteorological Society, 2012)
    The Brier score is a widely used measure of performance for probabilistic forecasts of event occurrences and is often decomposed additively into three terms that quantify the reliability and resolution of the forecasts and ...
  • Biased escorts: offspring sex, not relatedness explains alloparental care patterns in a cooperative breeder 

    Vitikainen, EIK; Marshall, HH; Thompson, FJ; Sanderson, JL; Bell, MBV; Gilchrist, JS; Hodge, SJ; Nichols, HJ; Cant, MA (Royal Society, 2017-05-03)
    Kin selection theory predicts that animals should direct costly care where inclusive fitness gains are highest. Individuals may achieve this by directing care at closer relatives, yet evidence for such discrimination in ...
  • Biases and Discrimination: An Economic Analysis using Lab and Field Experiments 

    Pearce, Graeme (University of ExeterEconomics, 2016-09-06)
    This thesis uses laboratory and field experiments to examine the underlying motivations that drive biased and discriminatory behaviour. Its focus is on the differential treatment of others that stems from individuals’ ...
  • Biases in Estimating Long Run Abnormal Returns and Conditional Measures of Performance: The Evidence on Takeovers Re-Examined 

    Gregory, Alan; Matatko, John (University of Exeter, Xfi Centre for Finance and Investment, 2004-08)
  • Biblical Perspectives on the Holiness of Place, Body, and Mortality in The Jerusalem Syndrome Collection 

    Levine, Abbi (University of ExeterEnglish, 2012-02-21)
    This work consists of a portfolio of creative writing in the form of a collection of short stories, The Jerusalem Syndrome, followed by a thesis, “Biblical Perspectives on the Holiness of Place, Body, and Mortality in The ...
  • A Bibliometric Study on Authorship Trends and Research Themes in Knowledge Management Literature 

    Jussila, J; Mustafee, N; Aramo-Immonen, H; Menon, K; Hajikhani, A; Helander, N (International Forum on Knowledge Asset Dynamics, 2017-06)
    The aim of the study is to identify the contribution of authors in the domain of Knowledge Management (KM). The underlying data is from two leading KM journals, namely, the Journal of Knowledge Management (JKM) and the ...
  • Biblos in New Zealand 

    Copley, Terence; Freathy, R.J.K.; Walshe, Karen; Baker, Hannah (University of Exeter, 2006)
    When we completed Phase Three of the Biblos Project we had clearly established that how young people perceive biblical narrative relates to their cultural situation: home and family; faith community (if any); school ...
  • Biclustering models for structured microarray data 

    Turner, Heather L.; Bailey, Trevor C.; Krzanowski, Wojtek J.; Hemingway, Cheryl A. (IEEE, 2005)
    Microarrays have become a standard tool for investigating gene function and more complex microarray experiments are increasingly being conducted. For example, an experiment may involve samples from several groups or may ...
  • Bidirectional transport and pulsing states in a multi-lane ASEP model 

    Lin, Congping; Steinberg, Gero; Ashwin, Peter (IOP Publishing, 2011)
    In this paper, we introduce an ASEP-like transport model for bidirectional motion of particles on a multi-lane lattice. The model is motivated by {\em in vivo} experiments on organelle motility along a microtubule (MT), ...
  • Bielectron vortices in two-dimensional Dirac semimetals 

    Downing, CA; Portnoi, ME (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-10-12)
    Searching for new states of matter and unusual quasi-particles in emerging materials and especially low-dimensional systems is one of the major trends in contemporary condensed matter physics. Dirac materials, which host ...
  • A bifunctional kinase-phosphatase in bacterial chemotaxis. 

    Porter, SL; Roberts, MA; Manning, CS; Armitage, JP (National Academy of Sciences, 2008-11-25)
    Phosphorylation-based signaling pathways employ dephosphorylation mechanisms for signal termination. Histidine to aspartate phosphosignaling in the two-component system that controls bacterial chemotaxis has been studied ...
  • Bifurcation Analysis of a Two-Compartment Hippocampal Pyramidal Cell Model 

    Atherton, LA; Prince, LY; Tsaneva-Atanasova, KT (Springer Verlag, 2016-05-25)
    The Pinsky-Rinzel model is a non-smooth 2-compartmental CA3 pyramidal cell model that has been used widely within the field of neuroscience. Here we propose a modified (smooth) system that captures the qualitative behaviour ...
  • Bifurcation analysis of delay-induced resonances of the El-Niño Southern Oscillation. 

    Krauskopf, Bernd; Sieber, J. (Royal Society, 2014)
    Models of global climate phenomena of low to intermediate complexity are very useful for providing an understanding at a conceptual level. An important aspect of such models is the presence of a number of feedback loops ...
  • Bifurcation to heteroclinic cycles and sensitivity in three and four coupled phase oscillators 

    Ashwin, Peter; Burylko, Oleksandr; Maistrenko, Yuri (Elsevier, 2008)
    We study the bifurcation and dynamical behaviour of the system of N globally coupled identical phase oscillators introduced by Hansel, Mato and Meunier, in the cases N=3 and N=4. This model has been found to exhibit robust ...
  • big bow mystery: The perfect crime 

    The Detective Story Club Ltd; Zangwill (2009-11-10)
  • Big catch, little sharks: Insight into Peruvian small-scale longline fisheries. 

    Doherty, PD; Alfaro-Shigueto, J; Hodgson, DJ; Mangel, JC; Witt, MJ; Godley, BJ (Wiley Open Access, 2014-05-14)
    Shark take, driven by vast demand for meat and fins, is increasing. We set out to gain insights into the impact of small-scale longline fisheries in Peru. Onboard observers were used to document catch from 145 longline ...
  • Big Data and Behavior in Operational Research: Towards a “Smart OR” 

    White, L; Burger, K; Yearworth, M (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016-07-08)
    Organisations are today characterised by increased dynamism and complexity. The challenges that have appeared as a result of these conditions have made organisations and the behaviour within them difficult to examine. We ...
  • Big egos can be green: A study of CEO hubris and environmental innovation 

    Arena, C; Michelon, G; Trojanowski, G (Wiley for British Academy of Management, 2017-11-15)
