• #### Connective constants and height functions for Cayley graphs ﻿

The connective constant $\mu$($\textit{G}$) of an infinite transitive graph $\textit{G}$ is the exponential growth rate of the number of self-avoiding walks from a given origin. In earlier work of Grimmett and Li, a locality ...
• #### Connectome analysis for pre-operative brain mapping in neurosurgery ﻿

(Taylor & Francis, 2016-07-22)
$\textit{Object:}$ Brain mapping has entered a new era focusing on complex network connectivity. Central to this is the search for the connectome or the brains ‘wiring diagram’. Graph theory analysis of the connectome ...
• #### Conquering the Complexity Mountain: Full-stack Computer Architecture teaching with FPGAs ﻿

(IEEE, 2016)
Modern computer systems are exceedingly complex, and increasingly so. This makes it challenging for students with no background in computer systems to climb the mountain of 40 years of design, particularly within a constrained ...
• #### A Conscience-Based Human Right to be ‘Doctor Death’ ﻿

(Sweet & Maxwell, 2016)
It is argued that a limited number of doctors may rely on article 9 ECHR to claim that they have a conscience-based right to assist the suicide of their legally competent adult patients who, for reasons of disability, are ...
• #### Consensus on the management of intracranial germ-cell tumours ﻿

(Elsevier, 2015)
The management of intracranial germ cell tumours (ICGCT) is complex. It was agreed at the 2013 Third International ICGCT Symposium (Cambridge, UK) to undertake a multi-disciplinary Delphi process to identify consensus in ...
• #### Consensus statement from the 2014 International Microdialysis Forum 8 ﻿

(Springer, 2015-06-03)
Microdialysis enables the chemistry of the extracellular interstitial space to be measured. Use of this technique in patients with acute brain injury has increased our understanding of the pathophysiology of several acute ...
• #### The consequences of high injected carrier densities on carrier localisation and efficiency droop in InGaN/GaN quantum well structures ﻿

(Journal of Applied Physics, 2012-04-18)
There is a great deal of interest in the underlying causes of efficiency droop in InGaN/GaN quantum well light emitting diodes, with several physical mechanisms being put forward to explain the phenomenon. In this paper ...
• #### Consequences of tidal interaction between disks and orbiting protoplanets for the evolution of multi-planet systems with architecture resembling that of Kepler 444 ﻿

(Springer, 2016)
We study orbital evolution of multi-planet systems with masses in the terrestrial planet regime induced through tidal interaction with a protoplanetary disk assuming that this is the dominant mechanism for producing orbital ...
• #### Conservation of DNA-binding specificity and oligomerisation properties within the p53 family ﻿

(2009-12-23)
Abstract Background Transcription factors activate their target genes by binding to specific response elements. Many transcription factor families evolved from a common ancestor by gene duplication and subsequent divergent ...
• #### Conserved Amphipathic Helices Mediate Lipid Droplet Targeting of Perilipins 1–3 ﻿

(ASBMB, 2016-03-25)
Perilipins (PLINs) play a key role in energy storage by orchestrating the activity of lipases on the surface of lipid droplets. Failure of this activity results in severe metabolic disease in humans. Unlike all other lipid ...
• #### Conserved genomic organisation of Group B Sox genes in insects. ﻿

(2005-05-19)
Abstract Background Sox domain containing genes are important metazoan transcriptional regulators implicated in a wide rage of developmental processes. The vertebrate B subgroup contains the Sox1, Sox2 and Sox3 genes that ...

• #### Conserved Molecular Interactions in Centriole-to-Centrosome Conversion ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-11-23)
Centrioles are required to assemble centrosomes for cell division and cilia for motility and signaling. New centrioles assemble perpendicularly to pre-existing ones in G1-S and elongate throughout S and G2. Fully-elongated ...
• #### Conserving nature out of fear or knowledge? Using threatening versus connecting messages to generate support for environmental causes ﻿

(Elsevier, 2015-04-29)
Threatening and connecting messages are two types of appeals commonly used to encourage conservation behaviors, yet little research has examined their psychological impacts and behavioral outcomes. This paper describes two ...
• #### Consider the Lilies: Prolepsis and the Development of Complementation ﻿

(Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht GmbH, 2003)
In the paper, an examination is made of prolepsis in ancient Greek, concentrating on its grammatical and prosodic structure. The feature is analyzed not as a stylistic curiosity, but as a syntactically anacoluthic construction, ...
• #### Considerations for monitoring of deep circular excavations ﻿

(ICE Publishing, 2016-05-19)
Understanding the magnitude and distribution of ground movements associated with deep shaft construction is a key factor in designing efficient damage prevention/mitigation measures. Therefore, a large-scale monitoring ...
• #### Considering river structure and stability in the light of evolution: feedbacks between riparian vegetation and hydrogeomorphology ﻿

(Wiley, 2014-09-18)
River ecological functioning can be conceptualized according to a four-dimensional framework, based on the responses of aquatic and riparian communities to hydrogeomorphic constraints along the longitudinal, transverse, ...
• #### Consistency of maternal cognitions and principles across the first five months following preterm and term deliveries ﻿

(Elsevier, 2014-10-30)
The aims of this study were to examine and compare the development of parenting cognitions and principles in mothers following preterm and term deliveries. Parenting cognitions about child development, including thinking ...
• #### Consistency of the Casagrande Liquid Limit Test ﻿

(ASTM International, 2015-10-06)
The liquid limit test is one of the most widely used tests in soil mechanics, with the value obtained being correlated against a variety of soil properties such as soil strength. The percussion test for liquid limit ...
