    • Nonlinear Phenomena in Coupled Cantilever Arrays 

      Gutschmidt S; Jackson S (2017)
      Cantilever arrays offer a promising alternative to standard single cantilever atomic force microscopy (AFM) imaging techniques. The successful implementation and operation of such an AFM array, however, is determined by ...
    • Nonlinear Regression Based Health Monitoring of Hysteretic Structures under Seismic Excitation 

      Xu, C.; Chase, J.G.; Rodgers, G.W. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2015)
      This paper presents a health monitoring method using measured hysteretic responses. Acceleration and infrequently measured displacement are integrated using a multirate Kalman filtering method to generate restoring ...
    • The nonlinear seismic response of tall shear wall structures 

      Taylor, Roy George (University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 1977)
      New building codes are tending to place considerable value on the use of deterministic dynamic analyses as a means of assessing the ability of engineering structures to withstand severe seismic ground motions. An investigation ...
    • Nonlinear wave groups in deep water 

      Bryant, Peter John (University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1978)
      Nonlinear wave groups in deep water consist of wave modes for which nonlinear interactions and dispersion are in balance. The evolution equations for the wave modes are derived, and properties of nonlinear wave groups ...

    • Nonlinear-dispersive GaAs FET drain-current model for harmonic balance simulation 

      Eccleston, K.W. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 1997)
      Popular GaAs FET large-signal drain conduction current models depend only on instantaneous terminal voltages, and ignore important phenomena that result in low frequency dispersion. To be valid at microwave frequencies, ...
    • Nonparametric Identification of the Distribution of Random Coefficients in Binary Response Static Games of Complete Information 

      Dunker F; Hoderlein S; Kaido H; Sherman R (2018)
      This paper studies binary response static games of complete information allowing complex heterogeneity through a random coefficients specification. The main result of the paper establishes nonparametric point identification ...
    • Nonprofit Organizations' Perceptions and Uses of the Internet 

      Kenix, L.J. (University of Canterbury. School of Social and Political SciencesUniversity of Canterbury. Media and Communication and Journalism, 2008)
      This research examines how nonprofit organizations perceive and utilize the internet through the framework of Habermas’s theory of the public sphere. In seven focus groups across the country, 52 people responsible for ...
    • Nonprofit-Business Collaboration: Exploring Dynamics from the Nonprofit Perspective 

      Brown, Ann; Walker, Bernard; Morrish, Sussie; Ozanne, Lucie (2018)
      Nonprofit organisations (NPOs) play an important role in disaster response and recovery for communities, and yet they operate in environments characterised by increasing resource constraints and escalating delivery demands. ...
    • Nonrecursive digital image restoration 

      McDonnell, M. J. (University of Canterbury, 1975)
      The problem of digitally restoring blurred images is considered. The subject of image restoration is reviewed in detail and a comprehensive notation for image restoration is developed. Degraded images are divided into ...
    • Nonsense Upon Stilts 

      Crampton, E. (University of Canterbury. Department of Economics and Finance, 2009)
      While the social costs of drug use are real, they are not well-measured by instruments such as BERL's Drug Harm Index. The DHI conflates the real costs of drug use with a host of costs borne by drug users, like the cost ...
    • Normal Faulting, Volcanism And Fluid Flow, Hikurangi Subduction Plate Boundary, New Zealand 

      Seebeck, Hannu Christian (University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2013)
      This thesis investigates normal faulting and its influence on fluid flow over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales using tunnel engineering geological logs, outcrop, surface fault traces, earthquakes, gravity, and ...
    • Normalisation, Evaluation and Verification of the New Zealand Hearing Screening Test. 

      Bowden, Alice Therese (University of Canterbury. Department of Communication Disorders, 2013)
      Presbycusis, or age-related hearing loss, is one of the most common chronic conditions to affect adults. On average individuals wait seven years from the time they notice a hearing impairment to the time they seek help ...
    • Normalization of a Fading Channel 

      Mammela, A.; Hoyhtya, M.; Taylor, D.P. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2006)
      In this paper we discuss the proper normalization of a fading channel model. Physically, radio channels correspond to passive circuits and follow the energy conservation law. The ratio of the received energy to the ...
    • Normalized Cross-Correlation Method For Motion Imaging Of Human Skin 

      Hii, A.; Chase, J.G.; Hann, C.E.; Van Houten, E.E.W. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2004)
      A major component of a Digital Image based Elasto-Tomography (DIET) breast cancer screening system is an accurate evaluation of skin tissue motion at the breast surface due to harmonic excitation. A motion tracking technique ...
    • Normalized naive set theory. 

      Istre, Erik (University of Canterbury, 2017)
      The broad goal of this thesis is the realization of a mathematically useful formal theory that contains a truth predicate, or as it's called in the literature, a "naive theory". To realize this goal, we explore the ...
    • Normative data for the UCAST-FW test of APD in children. 

      Yau, Justin Jie-Yin (University of Canterbury, 2018)
      In subjects with normal auditory processing, the central auditory nervous system (CANS) supports the interpretation of poor speech signals by a process of intrinsic redundancy. Auditory closure is achieved, enabling the ...
    • A Normative Power Paradox? Theory and Change in European Union Development Policy 

      Doidge, M. (University of Canterbury. National Centre for Research on Europe, 2014)
      One of the issues frequently raised when the EU's role as a normative actor is considered is that of consistency/variation in its approach. Much of this has centred around a norms–interests dichotomy, and the question as ...
    • Normativity, Realism and Emotional Experience 

      Turp M (2018)
      Norms are standards against which actions, dispositions of mind and character, states of affairs and so forth can be measured. They also govern our behaviour, make claims on us, bind us and provide reasons for action and ...
