The lesser names : the teachers of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society and other aspects of Scottish mathematics, 1867–1946

The lesser names : the teachers of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society and other aspects of Scottish mathematics, 1867–1946

At the Society’s ordinary meetings, talks and shorter presentations were given, usu- ally by members of the Society. Eventually, these talks were published in the Proceed- ings. This will be covered by section 1.5. The Society occasionally held discussions, for instance in session 1888 when a prolonged discussion on the teaching of arithmetic covered several meetings. A longer discussion took place on the 12th of May 1899 on the elementary treatment of proportion, initiated by Professor G. A. Gibson of Glas- gow University. There were several such discussions on the teaching of mathematics, but other discussions followed later, such as one on the application of mathematics to medical problems (15th of January 1926) and division algebras (13th of January 1928). The discussions were not without results. The one in 1888 led to a report being sent to Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Schools (HMIS) for Scotland. Similarly, the Society met on the 19th of June 1891 for a special meeting where they considered the draft ordinances of the ‘Universities Commission relating to Reputations for Degrees in the Scottish Universities’, which also resulted in correspondence being sent, this time to the Universities Commission. The Society also sent recommendations to the various branches of the Secondary Schoolmaster’s Association and to the Educational Institute of Scotland [89, 8 March 1895].

Mature Poets Steal: a novel, Notes to Self, and an extended essay on that work

Mature Poets Steal: a novel, Notes to Self, and an extended essay on that work

sources used within Reality Hunger are given attribution at the end of the published book. As Shields’s publisher perhaps emphasised to him, any author seeking to publish assemblage works must consider the legal ramifications of their appropriations. Indeed, the issue of attribution is often key to whether a work is considered plagiarised. Correct use of quotation marks and citations are usually enough to prevent accusations of plagiarism (although a work can still fall foul of copyright law if it is published without the correct permissions). However, there are also cases, for instance when a work makes extensive use of parody or allusion, where borrowed texts may not be cited and yet the new work is not considered an act of plagiarism. This might be the case, for example, if the hypotext(s) from which the work derives are known to the intended readership. On other occasions, Posner uses the example of book titles that are drawn from an earlier work, the ‘awkwardness of acknowledgement’ makes it impractical to acknowledge appropriations directly. 33 When this occurs, Posner

Unificational Combinatory Categorial Grammar  Combining Information Structure and Discourse Representations

Unificational Combinatory Categorial Grammar Combining Information Structure and Discourse Representations

The drs feature, if it is not a variable itself, holds a DRS corresponding to the semantics of the lexical item(s) characterised by the given sign. DRSs are constructed in a compositional way using the var and sit features of the sign to take care of predicate argument structure, and the merge operator (;) to construct larger DRSs from smaller ones. Merge-reduction is used to eliminate merge operators introduced in the composition process. This is also the stage where discourse referents are renamed to avoid accidental clashes of variables introduced by unification (Blackburn and Bos, 2003). 3.4 The Combinatory Rules

Bullying : health, well being and risk behaviours

Four of the five response categories were constant: Several times a week; About once a week; 2 or 3 times a month and It has only happened once or twice. The final response category was: I haven’t been bullied at school in the past couple of months or I haven’t bullied another pupil(s) at school in the past couple of months. From these response categories, the following categorisations were made: Neither bully nor victim (NBV) Pupils responded negatively to

The UK Centre for Astrobiology : a virtual astrobiology centre Accomplishments and lessons learned, 2011 2016

A very large number of people have been involved with the UK Centre for Astrobiology and have assisted it in its ac- tivities, including its Boards. We would like to point out that the author list is merely those people who have provided the logistical core of people at the University of Edinburgh in- volved in implementing day-to-day activity of the centre. We would like to thank STFC, Boulby Underground Science Facility and ICL-UK for their involvement and assistance with the underground astrobiology and analog research ac- tivity. We would like to thank all those individuals, UK re- search councils, funding agencies, nonprofit organisations, companies and corporations and UK and non-UK govern- ment agencies, who have so generously supported our aspi- rations and hopes over the last 5 years and supported UKCA projects. They include the STFC, the Engineering and Phy- sical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Natural En- vironmental Research Council (NERC), the EU, the UK Space Agency, NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), The Crown Estate, Cleveland Potash and others. The Astro- biology Academy has been supported by the UK Space Agency (UKSA), National Space Centre, the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), Dynamic Earth, The Royal Astronomical Society, The Rotary Club (Shetlands) and the NASA Astrobiology Institute. We thank the NASA Astrobiology Institute for providing support for graduate in- volvement in the Astrobiology Academy (Erik Larson and Rika Anderson in 2013 and Zach Grochau-Wright and Gus- tavo Ramirez in 2014) and Matt Noel for his assistance. We thank the University of Edinburgh for support for the centre and providing a home.

An experimental investigation into non-linear wave loading on horizontal axis tidal turbines

An experimental investigation into non-linear wave loading on horizontal axis tidal turbines

Six target regular wave frequencies were chosen for exploration ranging from 0.31 Hz to 0.55 Hz tank scale. This corre- sponds, using Froude number similitude, to between 7.1 s and 12.5 s full-scale wave periods and hence are representative of commonly occurring surface gravity waves. As discussed in Section 2.5, the use of short wave segments means that it is desirable to have short repeat times, which in turn influences the available frequencies. The wave frequencies chosen for use are shown in Table 2 in combination with the sea state repeat time. Due to the short times achieved, for every test it was possible to identify a segment of good data containing an integer number of wave cycles. These snippet times are also displayed in Table 2 and as discussed, this improves the quality of the analysis significantly.
