  • 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. ...
  • Bura, Valentin B (Victoria University of Wellington, 2013)
    This thesis establishes new results concerning the proof-theoretic strength of two classic theorems of Ring Theory relating to factorization in integral domains. The first theorem asserts that if every irreducible is a ...
  • Boonserm, Petarpa (Victoria University of Wellington, 2009)
    This thesis describes the development of some basic mathematical tools of wide relevance to mathematical physics. Transmission and reflection coefficients are associated with quantum tunneling phenomena, while Bogoliubov ...
  • Williams, Nuovella (Victoria University of Wellington, 2006)
    The advent of new technology for extracting genetic information from tissue samples has increased the availability of suitable data for finding genes controlling complex traits in plants, animals and humans. Quantitative ...
  • Randal, John (Victoria University of Wellington, 2002)
    Using volatility estimation as the underlying commonality this thesis traverses the statistical problem of robust estimation of scale, through to the financial problem of valuing call options over stock. We use a large ...
  • Martin, Angela Michelle (Victoria University of Wellington, 2009)
    eXtreme programming (XP) is one of a new breed of methods, collectively known as the agile methods, that are challenging conventional wisdom regarding systems development processes and practices. Practitioners specifically ...
  • Patel, Ankit (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    The objective of this research was to develop a roster-based optimisation system for limited overs cricket by deriving a meaningful, overall team rating using a combination of individual ratings from a playing eleven. The ...
  • Davies, Mark; Hine, John H (Victoria University of Wellington, 1995)
    The dramatic growth of the Internet has brought the information superhighway to our doorstep. It presents a new concept of public networking, offering new forms of communication and services. Most organizations now accept ...
  • Anderson, Ronald Boyd (Victoria University of Wellington, 2013)
    This thesis will investigate the prediction of the number of claims in a two dimensional automotive warranty claim model for the case of minimal repair.The method involved fitting marginal distributions for age of claim ...
  • Noble, James; Potanin, Alex; Biddle, Robert (Victoria University of Wellington, 2004)
    Object-oriented programs, when executed, produce a complex webs of objects and references between them, generally referred to as object graphs. These object graphs are difficult to design correctly and even more difficult ...
  • Walls, Fiona (Victoria University of Wellington, 2003)
    This thesis presents the findings of a project that explored the ways in which primary school children developed understandings about mathematics, mathematical 'learning' and 'knowing' and themselves as learners of ...
  • Boonserm, Petarpa (Victoria University of Wellington, 2005)
    In this thesis four separate problems in general relativity are considered, divided into two separate themes: coordinate conditions and perfect fluid spheres. Regarding coordinate conditions we present a pedagogical ...
  • Morris, Lindsay (Victoria University of Wellington, 2017)
    In order to carry out assessment of marine stock levels, an accurate estimate of the current year's population abundance must be formulated. Standardized catch per unit of effort (CPUE) values are, in theory, proportional ...
  • Harper, J F (Victoria University of Wellington, 2004)
    When a gas bubble rises in an impure liquid, its surface often has an upper spherical cap with negligible shear stress, a lower spherical cap with negligible tangential velocity, and a very small transition region between ...
