    • A C-Peptide-Based Model of Pancreatic Insulin Secretion in Extremely Preterm Neonates in Intensive Care 

      Dickson, J.L.; Alsweiler, J.; Gunn, C.A.; Pretty, C.G.; Chase, J.G. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2016)
      Background: Model-based glycaemic control relies on sufficiency of underlying models to describe underlying patient physiology. In particular, very preterm infant glucose-insulin metabolism can differ significantly from ...
    • Ca II absorption in the circumstellar disk of β Pictoris and 51 Ophiuchi 

      Persson, Stephen (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 1998)
      Presented here are the results of observations made of the Can Hand K absorption lines in the spectrum of the A5V star β Pictoris, a probable protoplanetary system surrounded by an edge-on circumstellar disc. At times when ...

    • Calcium dynamics and wave propagation in coupled cells. 

      Kenny, Allanah (University of Canterbury, 2016)
      Intercellular waves of calcium (Ca2+) are an important signalling mechanism in a wide variety of cells within the body, crucial for cellular coordination and control. In particular the Ca2+ concentration within smooth ...
    • Calculating the potential increase in Pinus radiate stem value through selection for higher stiffness 

      Ferguson, George (University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2014)
      New Zealand grown Pinus radiata is limited in its application for structural purposes by its stiffness deficiencies. This dissertation aims to estimate potential improvements in stem value through selection for improved ...
    • Calculation of 6j symbols 

      Searle, B. G. (University of Canterbury. Physics, 1988)
      At present there is no complete algorithm for the calculation of the coupling or recoupling factors of an arbitrary compact group. However, this thesis is based on the premise that the 6j can be calculated using only the ...
    • Calculation of fix-rate bias for automated telemetry systems 

      Hodge, M.; Brown, J.; Reale, M. (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2009)

      The application of the EN12354 prediction method to lightweight building constructions which typically have critical frequencies in or above the frequency range of interest requires the estimation of the resonant sound ...
    • Calculative practices in higher education: a retrospective analysis of curricular accounting about learning 

      Dixon, K. (MPRA Munich Personal RePEc ArchiveUniversity of Canterbury. Department of Accounting and Information Systems, 2009)
      Purpose – Accounting has been shown to figure variously in New Higher Education. However, despite their infant precursors having been labelled curricular accounting (Theodossin, 1986), accounting researchers have overlooked ...

    • A Calculus Based on Absence of Actions 

      Krishnan, P. (Department of Computer Science, University of CanterburyUniversity of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 1995)
      In this article we present a process algebra where the behaviour can be specified when certain actions cannot be exhibited. This is useful in specifying time outs, interrupts etc. We present a few properties which form ...
