  • 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 ...
  • Kvizhinadze, Giorgi (Victoria University of Wellington, 2010)
    The statistical analysis of a large number of rare events, (LNRE), which can also be called statistical theory of diversity, is the subject of acute interest both in statistical theory and in numerous applications. A careful ...
  • Azzato, Jeffrey Donald (Victoria University of Wellington, 2008)
    It is natural to try to extend the results of Robertson and Seymour's Graph Minors Project to other objects. As linked tree-decompositions (LTDs) of graphs played a key role in the Graph Minors Project, establishing the ...
  • Zhai, Xiaoyu (Victoria University of Wellington, 2013)
    The Global Positioning System (GPS) has become widely used in modern life and most people use GPS to find locations, therefore the accuracy of these locations is very important. In this thesis, we will use Longitude and ...
  • Williams, Alan (Victoria University of Wellington, 2010)
    We show that for any 3-connected matroid M on a ground set of at least four elements such that M does not contain any 4-element fans, and any basis B of M, there exists a set K [is a subset of] E(M) of four distinct elements ...
  • Welsh, Melissa (Victoria University of Wellington, 2012)
    Acute rheumatic fever is a major cause of heart disease in many parts of the world. Though it is generally considered rare in developed countries, is remains a large issue in New Zealand. Of particular concern is the ...
  • Peach, Elijah (Victoria University of Wellington, 2019)
    Herein contained is an exploration into mathematical modelling pertaining to blood flow in arteries. Previous models are considered as well as a new model derived. Some properties of these new models are investigated. They ...
