'Seize that chance!' Leaving home and transitions to higher education (2005)
Journal Article
Patiniotis, J., & Holdsworth, C. (2005). 'Seize that chance!' Leaving home and transitions to higher education. Journal of Youth Studies, 8(1), https://doi.org/10.1080/13676260500063710

This paper interrogates assumptions surrounding the practices of leaving home and going to higher education in England and Wales. As more students from non-traditional backgrounds are encouraged to go to university, this is leading to greater diversi... Read More about 'Seize that chance!'

In the recent years, the use of motion tracking systems for acquisition of functional biomechanical gait data, has received increasing interest due to the richness and accuracy of the measured kinematic information. However, costs frequently restrict... Read More about Automated design of robust discriminant analysis classifier for foot pressure lesions using kinematic data..

PopII 1/2 stars: very high N14 and low O16 yields (2005)

A link between the coercivity and microstructure of high moment Fe films and their use in magnetic tunnel junctions (2005)
Journal Article
Georgieva, M., Telling, N., & Grundy, P. (2006). A link between the coercivity and microstructure of high moment Fe films and their use in magnetic tunnel junctions. Materials Science and Engineering: B, 126(2-3), 287-291. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.mseb.2005.09.026

Magnetron sputtered single Fe films have been “softened” magnetically by controlled N-doping during the sputter deposition. This technique allows a reduction in grain size and coercivity of the Fe films, without decreasing the saturation magnetizatio...

In subspace face recognition, PCA, LDA and Bayesian are the most commonly used methods. Each of them has their own advantages and disadvantages in recognizing human faces. Their recognition rates depend much on the methodologies used in selecting/tra... Read More about Improved Bayesian Approach for Face Recognition.

Predation by generalist predators is difficult to study in the field because of the complex effects of positive and negative interactions within and between predator species and guilds. Predation can be monitored by molecular means, through identific... Read More about Detection of secondary predation by PCR analyses of the gut contents of invertebrate generalist predators.
