Evaluation of a screen management protocol
Parish, T. J.
The SSMP definition was released in July 1985 [SSMP85] making it a very recent contribution to the network protocol landscape. Protocols sponsored by large committees produce a great deal of expectation from implementors and users alike. The objective of this project was to implement SSMP and evaluate its performance.

Generalised linear mixed models and its application in R
Dawber, J.
Through the benefits of mixed modeling over the usual fixed effects modeling, certain data sets
can be better understood. Repeated measures data is especially well suited to mixed models. The
repeated measures can be used as random effects and thus improve the modeling process through the
mixed model. Statistical software such as R is now becoming increasingly more useful in using these
mixed models. Through using R, repeated measures data is readily modeled using generalised linear
mixed models. There are two packages in R which can perform generalised linear mixed models. The
application of both these packages in modeling generalised linear mixed models is explained simply and
concisely, with straightforward guidelines given to assist in the modeling process. Comparisons are made
between the modeling methods within each of the two packages, with both the benefits and limitations of
each package highlighted. Methods for additional ana.lysis on these models are also described. Repeated
measures count data on New Zealand birds is used as an example to show exactly how to implement
generalised linear mixed models in both packages in R.

On a functional equation model of transient cell-growrh
Begg, Ronald; Wake, G.C.; Wall, David J. N.
A cell-growth model with applications to modelling the size distribution of diatoms is examined.
The analytic solution to the model without dispersion is found and is shown to display
periodic exponential growth rather than asynchronous (or balanced) exponential growth. It is
shown that a bounding envelope (hull) of the solution to the model without dispersion takes the
same shape as the limiting steady size-distribution (SSD) to the dispersive case as dispersion tends
to zero. The effect of variable growth rate on the shape of the hull is also discussed.

The construction of timetables for secondary schools
Arps, Bevan
The generation of timetables in secondary schools has never been an easy task, and with the modem trend towards flexible curricula, this task is becoming increasingly complex and difficult. This paper investigates some of the characteristics of the problem which cause the difficulties. A computer based approach to the solution of problems in this area has been developed which finds optimal (or near optimal) solutions in a short enough time to permit iterative development of timetables in secondary schools.
