  • Harper, J F (Victoria University of Wellington, 1997)
    An analytical theory is given for the viscous wake behind a spherical bubble rising steadily in a pure liquid at high Reynolds number, and for that wake's effect on the motion of a second bubble rising underneath the first. ...
  • Vujičić, Aleksa (Victoria University of Wellington, 2019)
    We start this thesis by introducing the theory of locally compact groups and their associated Haar measures. We provide examples and prove important results about locally compact and more specifically amenable groups. One ...
  • Probert, Andrew (Victoria University of Wellington, 2018)
    Bodlaender et al. [7] proved a converse to Courcelle's Theorem for graphs [15] for the class of chordal graphs of bounded treewidth. Hliněný [25] generalised Courcelle's Theorem for graphs to classes of matroids represented ...
  • Fujita, Yuki (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    This goal of this research is to investigate associations between presences of fish species, space, and time in a selected set of areas in New Zealand waters. In particular we use fish abundance indices on the Chatham Rise ...
  • Costilla Monteagudo, Roy Ken (Victoria University of Wellington, 2017)
    Model based approaches to cluster continuous and cross-sectional data are abundant and well established. In contrast to that, equivalent approaches for repeated ordinal data are less common and an active area of research. ...
  • Dobbie, Stacey (Victoria University of Wellington, 2015)
    This thesis presents a comparison of statistical methodologies for cluster verification on ordinal response variables. Methodologies will be applied to a Listening Strategy dataset collected by the Language Learner Strategies ...
  • Paea, Sione (Victoria University of Wellington, 2008)
    Coal pyrolysis is a complex process involving a large number of chemical reactions. The most accurate and up to date approach to modeling coal pyrolysis is to adopt the Distributed Activation Energy Model (DAEM) in which ...
  • Nawarajan, Deloshan (Victoria University of Wellington, 2015)
    In this thesis, we explore the subject of complex spacetimes, in which the mathematical theory of complex manifolds gets modified for application to General Relativity. We will also explore the mysterious Newman-Janis ...
  • Duignan, Matthew (Victoria University of Wellington, 2008)
    Human Computer Interaction research has a unique challenge in understanding the activity systems of creative professionals, and designing the user-interfaces to support their work. In these activities, the user is involved ...
  • Amirinezhad, Seyedvahid (Victoria University of Wellington, 2019)
    In this thesis, a differential-geometric approach to the kinematics of multibody mechanisms is introduced that enables analysis of singularities of both serial and parallel manipulators in a flexible and complete way. ...
  • Otaif, Amani Ahmed (Victoria University of Wellington, 2013)
    The aim of this thesis is to apply the Grünwald–Blaschke kinematic mapping to standard types of parallel general planar three-legged platforms in order to obtain the univariate polynomials which provide the solution of the ...
  • Cattoen, Celine (Victoria University of Wellington, 2005)
    In this thesis, we consider two different problems relevant to general relativity. Over the last few years, opinions on physically relevant singularities occurring in FRW cosmologies have considerably changed. We present ...
  • Harper, J F (Victoria University of Wellington, 1993)
    Recently Lekner gave formulae for the total Coulomb force and potential on a charged particle due to a line of other charged particles, and showed how to use it for a regular array of charges in two or three dimensions. ...
  • Khaled, Rilla (Victoria University of Wellington, 2008)
    Persuasive technology (PT) has been defined by B. J. Fogg as "any interactive computing system designed to change peoples attitudes or behaviors". The kinds of attitudes people hold, and the behaviours they exhibit, are ...
  • Mellalieu, Peter John (Victoria University of Wellington, 1982)
    Decisions; Support; Systems; Planning; Optimization; Heuristics; Network programming; Fixed Costs; Travelling salesman; Distances; Computer graphics. A Decision Support System (DSS) is described, the prime objective of ...
  • Williams, Alan (Victoria University of Wellington, 2015)
    The classical tool at the matroid theorist’s disposal when dealing with the common problem of wanting to remove a single element from a 3-connected matroid without losing 3-connectivity is Tutte’s Wheels-and-Whirls Theorem. ...
  • Walsh, David (Victoria University of Wellington, 2008)
    A focal mechanism is a geometrical representation of fault slip during an earthquake. Reliable earthquake focal mechanism solutions are used to assess the tectonic characteristics of a region, and are required as inputs ...
  • Daher, Mohammed (Victoria University of Wellington, 2013)
    In this thesis we study the special Euclidean group SE(3) from two points of view, algebraic and geometric. From the algebraic point of view we introduce a dualisation procedure for SO(3;ℝ) invariants and obtain vector ...
  • Singh, Harpreet (Victoria University of Wellington, 2014)
    We present a new model for the fragmentation of dust beds in laboratory shock tube experiments. The model successfully explains the formation of layers in the bed using mass and momentum conservation. Our model includes ...
  • Brownrigg, Raymond Douglas (Victoria University of Wellington, 1978)
    A potentially parallel iterative algorithm for the solution of the unconstrained N-stage decision problem of Dynamic Programming is developed. This new solution method, known as Variable Metric Dynamic Programming, is based ...
