Linking electronic journals - Lessons from the Open Journal project (1998)
Journal Article
Hitchcock, S., Carr, L., Hall, W., Harris, S., Probets, S., Evans, D., & Brailsford, D. F. (1998). Linking electronic journals - Lessons from the Open Journal project

The Open Journal project has completed its three year period of funding by the UK Electronic Libraries (eLib) programme (Rusbridge 1998). During that time, the number of journals that are available electronically leapt from a few tens to a few thousa... Read More

Monadic parsing in Haskell (1998)
Journal Article
Hutton, G., & Meijer, E. (1998). Monadic parsing in Haskell. Journal of Functional Programming, 8(4),

This paper is a tutorial on defining recursive descent parsers in Haskell. In the spirit of one-stop shopping, the paper combines material from three areas into a single source. The three areas are functional parsers, the use of monads to structure... Read More

From "Rational Utopia" to "Will-to-Utopia". On the "Post-modern" Turn in the Recent Work of Agnes Heller (1998)
Journal Article
Tormey, S. (1998). From "Rational Utopia" to "Will-to-Utopia". On the "Post-modern" Turn in the Recent Work of Agnes Heller. Daimon, 17,

Agnes Heller recently described her position as 'postmodernist', suggesting a move from a political radical to a politically liberal or 'neoconservative' position. The aim of this paper is to assess the degree to which Heller can still be regarded as... Read More

The classical evaluation of relativistic spin networks (1998)
Journal Article
Barrett, J. W. (1998). The classical evaluation of relativistic spin networks

The evaluation of a relativistic spin network for the classical case of the Lie group SU(2) is given by an integral formula over copies of SU(2). For the graph determined by a 4-simplex this gives the evaluation as an integral over a space of geometr... Read More

The asylum, the workhouse, and the voice of the insane poor in nineteenth century England (1998)
Journal Article
Bartlett, P. (1998). The asylum, the workhouse, and the voice of the insane poor in nineteenth century England. International Journal of Law and Psychiatry, 21(4), doi:10.1016/S0160-2527(98)00023-5

The history of psychiatry is not merely the history of psychiatrists; it is also the history of patients. In this paper, admission records and case notes of a county asylum are used to consider the attitudes of those confined within it, and how the... Read More

Motivation in action: A process model of L2 motivation (1998)
Book Chapter
Dornyei, Z., & Otto, I. (1998). Motivation in action: A process model of L2 motivation. In Working Papers in Applied Linguistics, Vol. 4Thames Valley University

As part of a long-term project aimed at designing classroom interventions to motivate language learners, we have searched for a motivation model that could serve as a theoretical basis for the methodological applications. We have found that none of t... Read More

Fold and Unfold for Program Semantics (1998)
Conference Proceeding
Hutton, G. (1998). Fold and Unfold for Program Semantics

In this paper we explain how recursion operators can be used to structure and reason about program semantics within a functional language. In particular, we show how the recursion operator fold can be used to structure denotational semantics, how th... Read More

Hexagonal patterns in finite domains (1998)
Journal Article
Matthews, P. (1998). Hexagonal patterns in finite domains. Physica D: Nonlinear Phenomena, 116,

In many mathematical models for pattern formation, a regular hexagonal pattern is stable in an infinite region. However, laboratory and numerical experiments are carried out in finite domains, and this imposes certain constraints on the possible patt... Read More
