    • The automorphism groups of the Laguerre near-planes of orderfour 

      Steinke, G.F. (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics., 2006)
      We determine the automorphism groups of the Laguerre near-planes of order 4 found in Steinke, Australas. J. Combin. 25 (2002), 145-166, and give characterisations of some of these planes in terms of their automorphism groups.
    • Automorphism invariants for semigroups 

      Barit, William (University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1985)
      Invariant subgroups are associated with each element of a semigroup. These invariants are used to show certain semigroups of continuous functions have only inner automorphisms. In special cases bijections preserving ...
    • Automorphisms and range families of transformation semigroups 

      Levi, Inessa (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 Baer-Levi semigroups 

      Levi, I.; Sullivan, R. P.; Wood, G. R. (University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1981)
    • Autonomous Allocation of Wireless Body-Sensor Networks to FrequencyChannels: Modeling with Repeated "Balls-In-Bins" Experiments 

      Willig A (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 

      Chen, X.Q. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2016)
    • Autonomous Vehicles – Legal Concerns [MP3] 

      Bartneck, C. (2019)
      We continue our discussion on autonomous vehicles and focus in this episode on the legal aspects. In particular the issues around liability are a major obstacle for the wide adoption of autonomous vehicles. Who will be ...
    • Autonomous Vehicles – The Future Of Transportation [MP3] 

      Bartneck, C. (2019)
      Autonomous vehicles are one of the most interesting topics in human-robot interaction right now. While they are not humanoid in shape, they are one of the biggest, deadliest and most promising robots available to the general ...
    • Autoregulation modelling of cerebral haemodynamics 

      Moorhead, Katherine Tracey (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2005)
      The Circle of Willis (CoW) is a ring-like structure of blood vessels found at the base of the brain. Its main function is to distribute a constant flow oxygen-rich arterial blood to the cerebral mass, despite changes in ...
    • Autoregulation of the Human Cerebrovasculature by Neurovascular Coupling 

      Farr, Hannah Abigail (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. 

      Chen, William Wen-Hou (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 

      Morris K; Woodward GK; Kim, Dong Seong; Wood, Alan (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. 

      Bircham, John Stanley (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 

      Bashar, Mohammad Ehsanul (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 

      Duley, James (University of Canterbury. Department of Physics and Astronomy, 2011)
      The procedure of averaging and coarse-graining 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 

      Wiltshire, D.L. (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 ...

    • The average specific forced radiation wave impedance of a finite rectangular panel 

      Davy, J.L.; Larner, D.J.; Wareing, R.R.; Pearse, J.R. (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 ...
