  • Bi-electron bound states in single- and double-layer graphene nanostructures 

    Marnham, Lachlan Leslie (University of ExeterCollege of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, 2016-06-20)
    The prototypical exciton model of two interacting Dirac particles in graphene was analysed by Sabio et al, Phys. Rev. B 81, 045428 (2010), and it was found that in one of the electron-hole scattering channels the total ...
  • Biallelic RFX6 mutations can cause childhood as well as neonatal onset diabetes mellitus 

    Sansbury, Francis H.; Kirel, Birgul; Caswell, Richard; Allen, Hana Lango; Flanagan, SE; Hattersley, Andrew T.; Ellard, Sian; Shaw-Smith, Charles J. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-08-12)
    Neonatal diabetes is a highly genetically heterogeneous disorder. There are over 20 distinct syndromic and non-syndromic forms, including dominant, recessive and X-linked subtypes. Biallelic truncating or mis-sense mutations ...
  • Bias and sensitivity analysis when estimating treatment effects from the cox model with omitted covariates 

    Lin, NX; Logan, S; Henley, WE (Wiley for International Biometric Society, 2013-12)
    Omission of relevant covariates can lead to bias when estimating treatment or exposure effects from survival data in both randomized controlled trials and observational studies. This paper presents a general approach to ...
  • Bias in alternative medicine is still rife but is diminishing 

    Schmidt, Katja; Pittler, Max H; Ernst, Edzard (BMJ, 2001-11-03)
  • Bias in the boardroom 

    Marnet, Oliver (Inderscience Enterprises Ltd., 2011)
    This paper investigates the impact of social and psychological factors on the quality of boardroom decision-making. It is argued that bias in the boardroom undermines the monitoring function of boards, with a particularly ...
  • Bias in the estimation of non-linear transformations of the integrated variance of returns 

    Harris, Richard D. F.; Guermat, Cherif (SSRN, 2003-01)
    Many applications in finance use a non-linear transformation of the variance of returns. While the sample variance is an unbiased and consistent estimator of the population variance of returns, non-linear transformations ...
  • 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 (Springer Nature, 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 ...
