  • Gordon, Donald James (Victoria University of Wellington, 2008)
    Unrestricted aliasing is a problem endemic to object oriented programming. It allows notions of encapsulation fundamental to object oriented programming to be violated. This thesis describes ConstrainedJava, an implementation ...
  • Wake, Graeme C (Victoria University of Wellington, 1967)
    A study is made of the equations of heat conduction with slow combustion. A mathematical model is established from an interpretation of the physical model, with a few simplifying assumptions. This gives rise to a coupled ...
  • 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 ...
  • Grimwood, Geoffrey Ross (Victoria University of Wellington, 1994)
    In this thesis the Euclidean Steiner tree problem and the optimisation technique called simulated annealing are studied. In particular, there is an investigation of whether simulated annealing is a viable solution method ...
  • Anslow, Craig (Victoria University of Wellington, 2008)
    3D web software visualisation has always been expensive, special purpose, and hard to program. Most of the technologies used require large amounts of scripting, are not reliable on all platforms, are binary formats, or no ...
  • Duignan, Matthew (Victoria University of Wellington, 2003)
    Software visualisation employs various representations of software to help programmers better understand program code. However, there are many technologies that can be used to deliver software visualisations. These ...
  • Matti, Mukhlis (Victoria University of Wellington, 2004)
    This thesis explores and evaluates MAXCCLUS, a bioinformatics clustering algorithm, which was designed to be used to cluster genes from microarray experimental data. MAXCCLUS does the clustering of genes depending on the ...
  • Lu, Shaochuan (Victoria University of Wellington, 2009)
    The focus of this thesis is on the Markov modulated Poisson process (MMPP) and its extensions, aiming to propose appropriate statistical models for the occurrence patterns of main New Zealand deep earthquakes. Such an ...
  • Noble, James; Potanin, Alex; Biddle, Robert; Clarke, Dave (Victoria University of Wellington, 2006)
    Existing approaches to object encapsulation either rely on ad hoc syntactic restrictions or require the use of specialised type systems. Syntactic restrictions are difficult to scale and to prove correct, while specialised ...
  • Fu, Wenlong (Victoria University of Wellington, 2014)
    Edge detection is important in image processing. Extracting edge features is the main and necessary process in edge detection. Since features in edge detection are implicit, most of the existing edge features only work ...
  • Kvatch, Konstantin (Victoria University of Wellington, 2007)
    The thesis will have two main parts. First, let us start with an example. In finance, the standard version of the Black-Scholes formula is a beautiful closed form solution used to price European options. This famous formula ...
  • Maxwell, Kylie (Victoria University of Wellington, 2012)
    To ensure sustainability of fisheries resources, commercial fisheries in New Zealand are monitored by direct control of harvest levels using the Quota Management System. However, there is currently no overall harvest amount ...
  • Harper, J F (Victoria University of Wellington, 2007)
    For 50 years Fortran has been a computer language used mainly by engineers and scientists (but by few computer scientists), mainly for numerical work. Five versions were standardised and are commonly referred to as f66, ...
  • Clark, Ben (Victoria University of Wellington, 2015)
    Let Ɲ be a set of matroids. A matroid, M, is Ɲ -fragile, if for every element e, either M\e or M/e has no minor isomorphic to a member of Ɲ . This thesis gives new results in matroid representation theory that elucidate ...
  • Jennings, Amy (Victoria University of Wellington, 2013)
    This thesis presents a comparison of maternal outcomes for births in New Zealand District Health Boards (DHBs).This is carried out through analysis of the National Minimum Dataset collected by the Ministry of Health for ...
  • Boyle, Phillip (Victoria University of Wellington, 2007)
    Gaussian processes have proved to be useful and powerful constructs for the purposes of regression. The classical method proceeds by parameterising a covariance function, and then infers the parameters given the training ...
  • 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 ...
  • Potanin, Alex (Victoria University of Wellington, 2007)
    Modern object-oriented programming languages support many techniques that simplify the work of a programmer. Among them is generic types: the ability to create generic descriptions of algorithms and object structures ...
  • 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 ...
  • Welsh, Michael (Victoria University of Wellington, 2011)
    Maximum-sized results are an important part of matroid theory, and results currently exist for various classes of matroids. Archer conjectured that the maximum-sized golden-mean matroids fall into three distinct classes, ...
