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.

We generalize the concept of pattern occurrence in permutations, words or matrices to that in n-dimensional objects, which are basically sets of (n + 1)-tuples. In the case n = 3, we give a possible interpretation of such patterns in terms of bipartite graphs. For zero-box patterns we study vanishing borders related to bipartite Ramsey problems in the case of two dimensions. Also, we study the maximal number of 1’s in binary objects avoiding (in two different senses) a zero-box pattern.
