Sensitivity to disgust, stigma, and adjustment to life with a colostomy.
We examined whether trait disgust sensitivity predicts well-being in colostomy patients, and whether disgust predicts stigmatizing attitudes about colostomy in non-patients. 195 patients with aExpand
Approximate Implementations of Pure Random Search in the Presence of Noise
We introduce and exploit an improving bias condition on noise-affected pure random search algorithms for global optimisation under the influence of observational noise. Expand
A new development in pig growth modelling
Pig growth simulation models are used to determine feeding strategies that improve profitability on commercial farms. For a given farm, the number of diets fed, their energy, amino acid content, theExpand
Use of decision science to aid selection of genetically superior animals : a thesis presented in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Animal Science at
This thesis is concerned with a theoretical simulation model for pig breeding, as part of the ongoing search for the “perfect” genotype. The starting point is an additive model to investigate howExpand
