Automorphisms and range families of transformation semigroups
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics, 1984)The problem of describing all automorphisms of a given semigroup of transformations of a set X has interested a number of mathematicians in the past fifty years. J. Schreier showed that all automorphisms of the full ... 
Automorphisms of BaerLevi semigroups
(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1981) 
Autonomous Allocation of Wireless BodySensor Networks to FrequencyChannels: Modeling with Repeated "BallsInBins" Experiments
(Springer US, 2018)In this paper we model a situation where several wireless body sensor networks (WBSN) compete for occupation of a number of frequency channels. Each channel can host at most one WBSN with satisfactory performance and ... 
Autonomous Robotics System: Opportunities and Challenges
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2016) 
Autoregulation modelling of cerebral haemodynamics
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2005)The Circle of Willis (CoW) is a ringlike structure of blood vessels found at the base of the brain. Its main function is to distribute a constant flow oxygenrich arterial blood to the cerebral mass, despite changes in ... 
Autoregulation of the Human Cerebrovasculature by Neurovascular Coupling
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2013)Functional hyperaemia is an important mechanism by which increased neuronal activity is matched by a rapid and regional increase in blood supply. This mechanism is facilitated by a process known as “neurovascular coupling” ... 
An auxiliary power distribution network for an electric vehicle.
(University of Canterbury. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2003)The University of Canterbury purchased a modern Toyota MR2 sports car with the intention of converting it into an electric vehicle. Similar to the common combustion engine vehicles, electric vehicles requires power and ... 
Availability and Resiliency Analysis of Modern Distribution Grids Using Stochastic Reward Nets
(2017)This paper presents a method to evaluate the availability and resiliency of a modern distribution grid using Stochastic Reward Nets (SRNs). SRNs are a modelling formalism used to evaluate the complex dependencies of ... 
Avalanche hazard forecasting at Mount Hutt.
(University of Canterbury. Department of Geography, 1995)The decision making process of avalanche hazard forecasting was studied during the ski season of 1995 at Mount Hutt. The objective was to derive the main contributing factors of avalanche forecasting and then assess the ... 
Average case analysis of algorithms for the maximum subarray problem
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2007)Maximum Subarray Problem (MSP) is to find the consecutive array portion that maximizes the sum of array elements in it. The goal is to locate the most useful and informative array segment that associates two parameters ... 
Average cosmic evolution in a lumpy universe
(University of Canterbury. Department of Physics and Astronomy, 2011)The procedure of averaging and coarsegraining of the gravitational field equations with sources are investigated in both Newtonian gravity and in general relativity. In particular the schemes of Buchert and Korzyńnski ... 
Average observational quantities in the timescape cosmology
(University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2009)We examine the properties of a recently proposed observationally viable alternative to homogeneous cosmology with smooth dark energy, the timescape cosmology. In the timescape model cosmic acceleration is realized as an ... 
Average observational quantities in the timescape cosmology

The average specific forced radiation wave impedance of a finite rectangular panel
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2014)The average specific forced radiation wave impedance of a finite rectangular panel is of importance for the prediction of both sound insulation and sound absorption. In 1982, Thomasson published numerical calculations ... 
Avian Polyomavirus Genome Sequences Recovered from Parrots in Captive Breeding Facilities in Poland
(University of Canterbury. Biological SciencesUniversity of Canterbury. Human Interface Technology LaboratoryUniversity of Canterbury. Biomolecular Interaction Centre, 2015)Eight genomes of avian polyomaviruses (APVs) were recovered and sequenced from deceased Psittacula eupatria, Psittacula krameri, and Melopsittacus undulatus from various breeding facilities in Poland. Of these APVpositive ... 
AVIATION ACCIDENTS in ANTARCTICA A review of literature and examination of dimensions.
(University of Canterbury, 2014)Antarctica and its isolation relies heavily upon aviation for accessibility. For accessibility to, and scientific and artistic advancement of the Continent. The rapidly changing extreme weather, which creates environmental ... 
Aviation human error modelled as a production process
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2015)As technology systems have become more complex, so it is increasingly difficult for human operators to comprehend how the system is behaving. There is a need to better understand the causes of humanerror in the context ... 
Avoid the quasiequilibrium assumption when evaluating the electrocatalytic oxygen evolution reaction mechanism by Tafel slope analysis
(University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering, 2015)Tafel slope analysis is a powerful tool in comparing experimental data to a proposed re action mechanism. Typically, in order to simplify the analysis, the nonratedetermining steps in the reaction mechanism are assumed ... 
Avoiding surprises: fast mass screening for unwanted effects
(University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2009)The two principal challenges in processing many eucalypts are the distortion/warping of timeber during sawing and the subsequent difficulties in drying the timber without significant degrade. Incorporating wood quality ...
