Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

When planning in uncertain domains, it can be of great benefit if the planner is aware of the nature of the actions that it is dealing with. This paper investigates the use of statistical distributions of resource usage at the planning stage, and how these can be exploited to form robust plans. These statistical distributions are not always simple | they are a by-product of the execution process, formed by sub-programs that are used internally by the executive to accomplish the primitive action in hand. Techniques of forming these distributions are discussed in this paper, and methods for execution of such plans are also investigated and presented.
