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

Under the unifying umbrella of a general result of Penrose & Yukich [Ann. Appl. Probab., (2003) 13, 277--303] we give laws of large numbers (in the Lp sense) for the total power-weighted length of several nearest-neighbour type graphs on random point sets in Rd, d in N. Some of these results are known; some are new. We give limiting constants explicitly, where previously they have been evaluated in less generality or not at all. The graphs we consider include the k-nearest neighbours graph, the Gabriel graph, the minimal directed spanning forest, and the on-line nearest-neighbour graph.
