Can the magnetic topology of AB Doradus be explained by a potential field distribution
(Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2000)
We present potential magnetic field maps of the surface of the active KO dwarf, AB Dor. Maps of the surface magnetic flux distributions of rapid rotators can be produced using the technique of Zeeman Doppler imaging (ZDI). ...

Restructuring for shareholder value and its implications for labour
This paper provides an accounting analysis of the implications for labour of restructuring for shareholder value. It presents argument and evidence from the UK which suggests that activity-specific limits on cost recovery ...
VLBI observations of two single dMe stars: spatial resolution and astrometry
We report on 3.6 cm VLA and VLBA observations of YZ CMi and AD Leo, two nearby dMe stars. We resolve YZ CMi and can fit a circular symmetrical gaussian component of FWHP of 0.98 0.2 mas, corresponding to an extent of the ...
The perception of texture, object size and angularity by touch in virtual environments with two haptic devices
(University of Glasgow, 2000)
The incorporation of the sense of touch (haptic sense) into virtual reality (VR) has considerable potential to enhance the realism of virtual environments and make VR accessible to blind people. This paper summarises a ...
New customers to be managed : Pregnant women as consumers of healthcare
In the UK National Health Service patients are increasingly seen as consumers of a service. This longitudinal study examined the information sources and criteria used by women when choosing, using and evaluating maternity ...
