  • 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, ...
  • Harper, J F (Victoria University of Wellington, 2001)
    Over many years the author and others have given theories for bubbles rising in line in a liquid. Theory has usually suggested that the bubbles will tend towards a stable distance apart, but experiments have often showed ...
  • Perrott, Alexander (Victoria University of Wellington, 2017)
    In this thesis we focus on identically self-dual matroids and their minors. We show that every sparse paving matroid is a minor of an identically self-dual sparse paving matroid. The same result is true if the property ...
  • Varnosafaderani, Sima Rouhollahi (Victoria University of Wellington, 2010)
    When a repairable product under warranty fails, the manufacturer (warrantor) has the choice to either repair or replace the failed product. When repairing a failed product, the degree of repair which affects the working ...
  • Luo, Maoxin (Victoria University of Wellington, 2013)
    The Food Nutrition Environment Survey (FNES) is a survey of New Zealand early childhood centres and schools and the food and nutritional services that they provide for their pupils. The 2007 and 2009 FNES surveys were ...
  • Anastasiadis, Simon Seraphim (Victoria University of Wellington, 2013)
    Nutrient emissions from agricultural land are now widely recognized as one of the key contributors to poor water quality in local lakes, rivers and streams. Nutrient trading for non-point sources, including farm land, has ...
  • Li, Ying (Victoria University of Wellington, 2010)
    This thesis studies the short term outcomes in family annual income changes associated with internal migration in New Zealand. This is carried out through analysis of the unit record dataset produced from the Survey of ...
  • Donelan, Peter; Selig, Jon (Victoria University of Wellington, 2006)
    Screw systems describe the infinitesimal motion of multi–degree-of-freedom rigid bodies, such as end-effectors of robot manipulators. While there exists an exhaustive classification of screw systems, it is based largely ...
  • McGregor, Vidette Louise (Victoria University of Wellington, 2013)
    Squid fisheries require a different management approach to most fish species which are much longer living. Most squid live for around one year, spawn and then die. The result of this is an entirely new stock each year ...
