    • Multi-Species Interactions in Weed Biocontrol: Carduus nutans as a Case Study 

      Groenteman, Ronny (University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2008)
      Classical biocontrol systems are sometimes treated as an exercise in community assembly. As such, they include multiple species interactions. This thesis explores multi-species aspects in classical weed biocontrol, using ...
    • Multi-storey semi-active tuned mass damper building system 

      Chey, M.H.; Mander, J.B.; Carr, A.J.; Chase, J.G. (University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering.University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2006)
      To overcome the inability of the Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) system, which has linear properties and limitations on the weight, this paper suggests a multi story Semi-Active Tuned Mass Damper (SATMD) building system using a ...
    • Multi-user indoor UWB wireless communication using polyphase spreading sequences 

      Ambroze, M.A.; Martin, P.A.; Tomlinson, M.; Taylor, D.P. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2015)
      In this paper, we design a multi-user ultra-wideband system for indoor wireless communication. The proposed system is useful in multipath radio reception as the full multipath diversity gain is achieved. The system has ...
    • Multi-user Non-Cooperative and Cooperative Systems with HARQ 

      Rauf, Zahid (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2013)
      The performance and reliability of wireless communication links can be improved by employing multiple antennas at both ends, thereby creating multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels. However, once multiple co-channel ...
    • Multiband power amplifier for multiband wireless applications 

      Eccleston, K.W. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2002)
      RF sub-systems in multimode/multiband wireless communication systems need to operate on different bands that are typically narrow but sparsely separated. We show that a single-ended dual-fed distributed amplifier can operate ...
    • Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) determined surface-wave velocity profile and its relation to observation of the near-surface polar firn layers. 

      Armstrong, Martina (2009)
      A Multichannel Analysis of Surface-Waves (MASW) determined shear-wave (Vs) profile was related to observations of the near-surface polar firn layers on the Erebus Ice Shelf, Ross Island, Antarctica. The surface-wave ...
    • Multicriteria Air Traffic Flow Management 

      Kuhn, K. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2011)
      Air traffic flow management initiatives, such as ground delay programs and airspace flow programs, mitigate and avoid situations where demand for air transportation system resources outstrips supply. Mathematical ...
    • The Multicriteria Aircraft Landing Problem 

      Kuhn, K; Raith, A. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2011)
      Safety considerations based on aerodynamic principles require minimum separations between aircraft as they arrive on a common runway. These wake-vortex separations translate into temporal separations on the order of 50 ...
    • Multidimensional bisection : a dual viewpoint 

      Baritompa, William P. (University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1993)
      This paper provides an alternative viewpoint of multidimensional bisection global optimisation methods of Wood. A dual coordinate representation of convex bodies is introduced which leads to an easy implementation and ...
