  • 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 ...
  • Carson, Benjamin (Victoria University of Wellington, 2020)
    A single fault process model was created to test the sensitivity of each TOUGH2 rock parameter on the convection flow rate and fluid enthalpy within a simulated fault. With a fixed temperature base the single fault process ...
  • Pearce, David J; Male, Chris; Dymnikov, Constantine; Potanin, Alex (Victoria University of Wellington, 2008)
    Java's annotation mechanism allows us to extend its type system with non-null types. However, checking such types cannot be done using the existing bytecode verification algorithm. We extend this algorithm to verify ...
  • Le Gros, Giovanna (Victoria University of Wellington, 2015)
    The Khovanov homology is a knot invariant which first appeared in Khovanov's original paper of 1999, titled ``a categorification of the Jones polynomial.'' This thesis aims to give an exposition of the Khovanov homology, ...
  • Sherley, Brenda Mary (Victoria University of Wellington, 2011)
    A difference between the beliefs and practices about mathematics learning and teaching held by teachers in kindergartens and teachers in new entrant classrooms may lead to problems as teachers and children manage the ...
  • Paea, Sione (Victoria University of Wellington, 2011)
    This thesis uses the kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) algorithm to examine the growth morphology and structure of nanocrystals. Crystal growth in a supersaturated gas of atoms and in an undercooled binary melt is investigated. First, ...
  • Abreu, Gabriel (Victoria University of Wellington, 2011)
    General Relativity, while ultimately based on the Einstein equations, also allows one to quantitatively study some aspects of the theory without explicitly solving the Einstein equations. These geometrical notions of ...
  • Semple, Charles A (Victoria University of Wellington, 1998)
    The class of matroids representable over all fields is the class of regular matroids. The class of matroids representable over all fields except perhaps GF(2) is the class of near-regular matroids. Let k be a non-negative ...
