    There are many standards available for archiving digital and analogue (paper) data and documents, but these come from various sources and it can be difficult to understand what standards should be used, and where. Researchers ...
  • Cooper, Antony K (2003-10)
    A thought piece submitted to the European Network of Forensic Science Institutes (ENFSI), as part of their consideration of forming an European Bloodstain Pattern Analysis Group, and submitted by one of their experts to ...
  • Cooper, Antony K; Kourie, DG; Coetzee, S (2010-10)
    Conventionally in formal concept analysis (FCA), concept stability is preferred in the lattice, because instability (i.e. low stability) represents noise that clouds the analysis of the data. However, high concept stability ...
