  • R code for generating random associations and conducting group-based sampling on them 

    Silk, Matthew (University of Exeter, 2014-07-09)
    R code which can be used to generate associations matrices of randomly moving individuals. Censuses are conducted in a group based style on these randomly moving individuals, so that individuals observed in the same group ...
  • R. V. Jones and the Birth of Scientific Intelligence 

    Goodchild, James Martinson (University of ExeterHistory, 2013-03-20)
    The history of scientific intelligence – its birth, its importance during the Second World War, and its unique wartime qualities – has relied almost entirely on the memories of its pioneer, R. V. Jones. This thesis constitutes ...
  • RA autoantibodies as predictors of rheumatoid arthritis in non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis patients. 

    Perry, E; Stenton, C; Kelly, C; Eggleton, P; Hutchinson, D; De Soyza, A (European Respiratory Society: ERJ, 2014-10-01)
  • Rab32 connects ER stress to mitochondrial defects in multiple sclerosis 

    Haile, Y; Deng, X; Ortiz-Sandoval, C; Tahbaz, N; Janowicz, A; Lu, J-Q; Kerr, BJ; Gutowski, NJ; Holley, JE; Eggleton, P; Giuliani, F; Simmen, T (BioMed Central, 2017-01-23)
    BACKGROUND: Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is a hallmark of neurodegenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS). However, this physiological mechanism has multiple manifestations that range from impaired clearance ...
  • Rabbit squeaking toy

  • Rabbit Warrens of South-West England: Landscape Context, Socio-Economic Significance and Symbolism 

    Gould, David Robert (University of ExeterArchaeology, 2016-09-02)
    For several centuries following their introduction into the British Isles by the Normans, rabbits were farmed on man-made warrens. The right to hunt rabbits during the medieval period was restricted to the highest strata ...
  • Raccontare la violenza: le ragioni di Giacoma Limentani 

    Parisi, L (Annali D'italianistica, Inc., 2017-11-16)
    Le tre parti della Trilogia di Giacoma Limentani (scritte fra il 1967 e il 2003) raccontano la storia di una ragazza di dodici anni violentata da un gruppo di picchiatori fascisti e descrivono gli effetti che quell’esperienza ...
  • Race and History: Comments from an Epistemological Point of View 

    Müller-Wille, S (Sage Publications, 2014-01-13)
    The historiography of race is usually framed by two discontinuities: the invention of race by European naturalists and anthropologists, marked by Carl Linnaeus’s (1735) Systema naturae and the demise of racial typologies ...
  • Race, Policing, and Public Inquiries During the 1980-81 Collective Violence in England 

    Peplow, Simon George (University of ExeterHistory, 2015-07-27)
    This thesis examines the collective violence throughout England in 1980-81; these were largely spontaneous incidents of hostility directed against police from predominantly the youth of local black communities. Rejecting ...
  • Racehorses are getting faster 

    Sharman, P; Wilson, Alastair J. (Royal Society, 2015-06-24)
    Previous studies have concluded that thoroughbred racehorse speed is improving very slowly, if at all, despite heritable variation for performance and putatively intensive selective breeding. This has led to the suggestion ...
  • “Race”, “Nation”, “People”: Ethnic Identity-Construction in 1 Peter 2.9 

    Horrell, David G. (Cambridge University Press, 2012-01)
    1 Peter 2.4–10 is a significant passage within the letter, rich in material from the Jewish scriptures. Verse 9 is particularly significant for the construction of Christian group-identity in that it uniquely applies three ...
  • Radar tracking and motion-sensitive cameras on flowers reveal the development of pollinator multi-destination routes over large spatial scales. 

    Lihoreau, M; Raine, NE; Reynolds, AM; Stelzer, RJ; Lim, KS; Smith, AD; Osborne, JL; Chittka, L (Public Library of Science, 2012-09-20)
    Central place foragers, such as pollinating bees, typically develop circuits (traplines) to visit multiple foraging sites in a manner that minimizes overall travel distance. Despite being taxonomically widespread, these ...
  • RadBench: Benchmarking image interpretation skills 

    Wright, C; Reeves, P (WB Saunders, 2016-01-20)
    Purpose The key aim of this research was to develop an objective, accurate assessment tool with which to provide regular measurement and monitoring of image interpretation performance. The tool was a specially developed ...
  • Rademacher chaos complexities for learning the kernel problem 

    Ying, Yiming; Campbell, Colin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press (MIT Press), 2010)
    We develop a novel generalization bound for learning the kernel problem. First, we show that the generalization analysis of the kernel learning problem reduces to investigation of the suprema of the Rademacher chaos process ...
  • Radial velocity eclipse mapping of exoplanets 

    Nikolov, Nikolay; Sainsbury-Martinez, Felix (American Astronomical Society / IOP Publishing, 2015-07-17)
    Planetary rotation rates and obliquities provide information regarding the history of planet formation, but have not yet been measured for evolved extrasolar planets. Here we investigate the theoretical and observational ...
  • Radiation damping in atomic photonic crystals 

    Horsley, S.A.R.; Artoni, M.; La Rocca, G.C. (American Physical Society, 2011)
    The force exerted on a material by an incident beam of light is dependent upon the material’s velocity in the laboratory frame of reference. This velocity dependence is known to be difficult to measure, as it is proportional ...
  • Radiation damping optical enhancement in cold atoms 

    Wu, Jin-Hui; Horsley, S.A.R.; Artoni, M.; La Rocca, G.C. (Nature Publishing Group, 2013)
    The typically tiny effect of radiation damping on a moving body can be amplified to a favorable extent by exploiting the sharp reflectivity slope at one edge of an optically induced stop-band in atoms loaded into an optical ...
  • Radiation Hydrodynamic Models and Simulated Observations of Radiative Feedback in Star Forming Regions 

    Haworth, Thomas (University of ExeterCollege of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, 2013-10-11)

  • Radiation pressure on a moving body: Beyond the Doppler effect 

    Horsley, S.A.R.; Artoni, M.; La Rocca, G.C. (Optical Society of America, 2012)
    The dependence of macroscopic radiation pressure on the velocity of the object being pushed is commonly attributed to the Doppler effect. This need not be the case, and here we highlight velocity-dependent radiation pressure ...
