  • Jury, Nicholas (Victoria University of Wellington, 2017)
    Drug use takes on many forms, normally this will be just the occasional alcoholic drink, certain individuals drug use develops into habitual use, or more extreme drugs, and then into full addiction. Some of these addicted ...
  • Morris, Lindsay (Victoria University of Wellington, 2017)
    In order to carry out assessment of marine stock levels, an accurate estimate of the current year's population abundance must be formulated. Standardized catch per unit of effort (CPUE) values are, in theory, proportional ...
  • Xu, Shuhan (Victoria University of Wellington, 2017)
    The aim of this thesis is to investigate whether there are associations between economically motivated crimes and macroeconomic variables. Economically motivated crimes include burglary, fraud and theft. Non-traffic offences ...
  • Nguyen, Thuong (Victoria University of Wellington, 2017)
    For a long time, the goodness of fit (GOF) tests have been one of the main objects of the theory of testing of statistical hypotheses. These tests possess two essential properties. Firstly, the asymptotic distribution of ...
  • 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. ...
  • Brown, Patrick (Victoria University of Wellington, 2017)
    In cricket, the better an individual batsman or batting partnership performs, the more likely the team is to win. Quantifying batting performance is therefore fundamental to help with in-game decisions, to optimise team ...
  • Gray, Finnian (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    In this thesis we look at the intersection of quantum field theory and general relativity. We focus on Hawking radiation from black holes and its implications. This is done on two fronts. In the first we consider the ...
  • Hunt, Rachel (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    Scheduling problems arise whenever there is a choice of order in which a number of tasks should be performed; they arise commonly, daily and everywhere. A job shop is a common manufacturing environment in which a schedule ...
  • McInerney, Michael (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    This thesis establishes results in several different areas of computability theory. The first chapter is concerned with algorithmic randomness. A well-known approach to the definition of a random infinite binary sequence ...
  • Hall, Jasmine (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    The algebra of throws is a geometric construction which reveals the underlying algebraic operations of addition and multiplication in a projective plane. In Desarguesian projective planes, the algebra of throws is a ...
  • 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 ...
  • Arthur, Katie (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    In [4], Downey and Greenberg define the notion of totally ⍺-c.a. for appropriately small ordinals ⍺, and discuss the hierarchy this notion begets on the Turing degrees. The hierarchy is of particular interest because it ...
  • Mudge, Jayden (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    In this Master’s Thesis, we set up the groundwork for [8], a paper co-written by the author and Hung Pham. We summarise the Fourier and Fourier-Stieltjes algebras on both abelian and general locally compact groups. Let Г ...
  • Patel, Ankit (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    The objective of this research was to develop a roster-based optimisation system for limited overs cricket by deriving a meaningful, overall team rating using a combination of individual ratings from a playing eleven. The ...
  • Porter, Michelle (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    Computable analysis has been well studied ever since Turing famously formalised the computable reals and computable real-valued function in 1936. However, analysis is a broad subject, and there still exist areas that have ...
  • Prideaux, Kadin (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    Matroids have a wide variety of distinct, cryptomorphic axiom systems that are capable of defining them. A common feature of these is that they are able to be efficiently tested, certifying whether a given input complies ...
  • Kwon, Young-Min (Brian) (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    This thesis illustrates statistical methodology for identifying the effects of explanatory variables, for the response variables with an ordinal nature. The dataset applied to this methodology is a Listening Strategy dataset ...
  • Marshall, Richard J. (Victoria University of Wellington, 2015)
    The development of a heuristic to solve an optimisation problem in a new domain, or a specific variation of an existing problem domain, is often beyond the means of many smaller businesses. This is largely due to the task ...
  • Kempthorne, Loveday Jane Anastasia (Victoria University of Wellington, 2015)
    This doctoral thesis is an examination of the relationship between poetry and mathematics, centred on three twentieth-century case studies: the Polish poets Czesław Miłosz (1911-2004) and Zbigniew Herbert (1924-1998), and ...
  • Greenbank, Emma (Victoria University of Wellington, 2015)
    Surtseyan ejecta are formed in shallow sub-aqueous volcanic eruptions. They occur when water, containing a slurry of previously erupted material, is washed into the volcanic vent. This slurry is incorporated into the magma ...
