  • 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 ...
  • Jose, Meenu Mariya (Victoria University of Wellington, 2020)
    There are distinct differences between classes of matroids that are closed under principal extensions and those that are not Finite-field-representable matroids are not closed under principal extensions and they exhibit ...
  • Welsh, Michael (Victoria University of Wellington, 2014)
    A rank-r simple matroid is maximum-sized in a class if it has the largest number of elements out of all simple rank-r matroids in that class. Maximum-sized matroids have been classified for various classes of matroids: ...
  • Santiago Silva, Jessica (Victoria University of Wellington, 2019)
    In this thesis, the connections between thermodynamics and general relativity are explored. We introduce some of the history of the interaction between these two theories and take some time to individually study important ...
  • Renner, Ross Martyn (Victoria University of Wellington, 1989)
    Large compositional datasets of the kind assembled in the geosciences are often of remarkably low approximate rank. That is, within a tolerable error, data points representing the rows of such an array can approximately ...
  • Frouzesh, Faezeh (Victoria University of Wellington, 2012)
    The use of mixture models in statistical analysis is increasing for datasets with heterogeneity and/or redundancy in the data. They are likelihood based models, and maximum likelihood estimates of parameters are obtained ...
  • 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 ...
  • Lankshear, Lisa N. (Victoria University of Wellington, 2010)
    This thesis investigates oral health in New Zealand. This is carried out through an analysis of the New Zealand Health Survey (NZHS) which was undertaken by the Ministry of Health in 2006/07. The World Health Organisation ...
  • Baccetti, Valentina (Victoria University of Wellington, 2014)
    In this thesis we shall present a collection of research results about phenomena that lie at the interface between quantum physics and general relativity. The motivation behind our research work is to find alternative ways ...
  • Crook, Deborah (Victoria University of Wellington, 2009)
    In this work, we examine the polynomial invariants of the special Euclidean group in three dimensions, SE(3), in its action on multiple screw systems. We look at the problem of finding generating sets for these invariant ...
  • Large, Kathleen (Victoria University of Wellington, 2014)
    The aim of this project was to conduct a stock assessment to determine the population dynamic characteristics of rattail species taken as bycatch in the hoki, hake and ling fishery on the Chatham Rise. No quantitative ...
  • Bancolita, Joel E. (Victoria University of Wellington, 2011)
    The Philippines is a country where a quarter to one-third of the population is poor. Although the nation has managed to lower poverty incidence in some years, its booming population increases the poor population ...
  • Rajan, Del (Victoria University of Wellington, 2020)
    This thesis is in the field of quantum information science, which is an area that reconceptualizes quantum physics in terms of information.  Central to this area is the quantum effect of entanglement in space.  It is an ...
  • Day, Adam Richard (Victoria University of Wellington, 2011)
    This thesis establishes significant new results in the area of algorithmic randomness. These results elucidate the deep relationship between randomness and computability. A number of results focus on randomness for ...
  • Critchlow, William (Victoria University of Wellington, 2018)
    This thesis is inspired by the observation that we have no good random model for matroids. That stands in contrast to graphs, which admit a number of elegant random models. As a result we have relatively little understanding ...
  • Jowett, Susan (Victoria University of Wellington, 2015)
    A connectivity function is a symmetric, submodular set function. Connectivity functions arise naturally from graphs, matroids and other structures. This thesis focuses mainly on recognition problems for connectivity ...
  • Harper, J F (Victoria University of Wellington, 1994)
    A simple method of reducing a parabolic partial differential equation to canonical form if it has only one term involving second derivatives is the following: find the general solution of the first-order equation obtained ...
  • 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 ...
  • Wong, Phillip Lee-Ming (Victoria University of Wellington, 2008)
    One of the greater issues in Genetic Programming (GP) is the computational effort required to run the evolution and discover a good solution. Phenomena such as program bloating (where genetic programs rapidly grow in size) ...
  • Ball, Christopher (Victoria University of Wellington, 2013)
    The first chapter consists of an overview of the theory of empirical processes, covering an introduction to empirical processes in R, uniform empirical processes and function parametric empirical processes in Section 1.1. ...
