Biochemical adaptations in early starvation: observations on sex difference. (1978)
Journal Article
BROOM, J., FLECK, A., DAVIDSON, D.F., ROSENBURG, C. and DURNIN, J.V.G.A. 1978. Biochemical adaptations in early starvation: observations on sex difference. Proceedings of the Nutrition Society [online], 37(3), page 92A. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1079/PNS19780048

Twenty-two students, eleven male and eleven female, volunteered to fast for 3 d. Twenty-four hour urine collections were obtained over the period of study, and total nitrogen, urea, and 3-hydroxybutyrate (3-OH-butyrate) were determined in each.

Protein synthesis in the rat liver after fracture of the femur. (1974)
Journal Article
KHAN, S.N., TILSTONE, W.J., FLECK, A. and BROOM, I. 1974. Protein synthesis in the rat liver after fracture of the femur. Proceedings of the Nutrition Society [online], 33(3), pages 93A-94A. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1079/PNS19740058

Moderate to severe trauma is accompanied by two characteristic responses in plasma protein concentration, namely an increase in levels of acute phase reactants and a fall in albumin (Cuthbertson & Tompsett, 1935; Oweb, 1967).

Properties of a high-current discharge in alkali-metal-seeded rare gases. (1969)
Thesis
ELLINGTON, H.I. 1969. Properties of a high-current discharge in alkali-metal-seeded rare gases. Robert Gordon's Institute of Technology, PhD thesis.

This thesis is an account of a detailed investigation of the properties of a recently-discovered gas discharge - a discharge that operates at a few volts or tens of volts, and which carries a current of the order of amps through a mixture consisting...

Generating easy and hard problems using the proximate optimality principle.
Dataset
MCCALL, J.A.W., CHRISTIE, L.A. and BROWNLEE, A.E.I. 2015. Generating easy and hard problems using the proximate optimality principle. [Dataset]

These data were gathered to investigate the hypothesis that coherent functions will be easy and anti-coherent functions will be hard for a hillclimber. We generated 10 coherent functions for each length on bit-strings of length 6-100 and the same num... Read More about Generating easy and hard problems using the proximate optimality principle..

Walsh families of all rank-invariant classes of 3-bit pseudo-Boolean functions.

CHRISTIE, L.A. 2016. Walsh families of all rank-invariant classes of 3-bit pseudo-Boolean functions. [Dataset]

This dataset was compiled as part of the following PhD thesis: CHRISTIE, L.A. 2016. The role of Walsh structure and ordinal linkage in the optimisation of pseudo-Boolean functions under monotonicity invariance. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis. H...

Gas-condensate flow modelling for shale gas reservoirs: MATLAB codes.
Dataset
LABED, I. 2016. Gas-condensate flow modelling for shale gas reservoirs: MATLAB codes. [Dataset]

These codes are supplementary to the full thesis, which is available on OpenAIR: http://hdl.handle.net/10059/2144. The codes are provided in a single ZIP file, which will need to be unzipped to access the individual files. The dataset consists of 33...

The analysis, presentation and sustainability of a past Northeast of Scotland 'way of life' through video capture.
Dataset
CARNEY, D. 2003. The analysis, presentation and sustainability of a past Northeast of Scotland 'way of life' through video capture. [Dataset]

These outputs were submitted as part of Don Carney's thesis, examining the socio-cultural environment of the northeast of Scotland, from Aberdeen to Cabrach and from Portsoy to Laurencekirk. The thesis investigates and visualised aspects of the regio... Read More about The analysis, presentation and sustainability of a past Northeast of Scotland 'way of life' through video capture..
