    • Oamaru in the depression of the 1930s. 

      Breen, Helen Marjorie (University of Canterbury. History, 1977)
      The choice of Oamaru as an area for study was based mainly on its size. It can be described as an intermediate sized town which was what the thesis had set out to investigate. The years 1929 to 1935 were set as time limits ...
    • OASIS : an object oriented animation system in Scheme. 

      Munnings, Peter (University of Canterbury, 1987)
      The main aim of this project is to develop an animation system for simple geometric objects. Of course this is not a very clear definition of what is required. While working on this project, the objectives to be reached ...
    • Obergefell v. Hodges and the Judicialization of Same-Sex Marriage in America: Legalizing the Impossible 

      Ojilere, Aloy (Project Monma Research Centre, 2016)
      In Obergefell et al. v. Hodges, Director, Ohio Department of Health, et al (Obergefell), 2015, the US Supreme Court supposedly legalized same-sex marriage across America, thus, resting the “right to marry” advocacy in ...
    • Object Oriented Metrics: Precision Tools and Configurable Visualisations 

      Churcher, N.; Irwin, W. (Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, University of CanterburyUniversity of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2003)
      Software metrics are a valuable tool in helping software engineers to develop large, complex software systems. However, it is vital that transparency and precision are maintained at all stages. We contend that without ...
    • Object-based attention with endogenous cuing and positional certainty 

      Chen, Z.; Cave, K.R. (University of Canterbury. Psychology., 2008)
      Previous studies have concluded that object-based attention does not always arise if attention is cued endogenously (Macquistan, 1997) or if the target location is known with certainty (Shomstein & Yantis, 2002). In the ...
    • An object-based cost of visual filtering 

      Chen, Z. (University of Canterbury. Psychology., 2000)
      Although evidence for object-based attention has been reported in a variety of paradigms, few studies have examined directly the relationship between the processing efficiency of the targets and the number of ...
    • Object-oriented model representation for control systems analysis 

      Kreutzer, W. (University of Canterbury, 1988)
      The representation of systems is a key issue in system theory and computer-aided control engineering. This paper discusses different ways to represent systems and suggests an approach based on object-oriented programming ...
    • Objective Crime Data and Walking for Physical Activity 

      Pearson, A.; Lovasi, G.; Psaty, B.; Mayer, J. (University of Canterbury. Geography, 2006)
    • Objective measurements of patient agitation in critical care using physiological signals and fuzzy systems 

      Agogué, Franck (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2005)
      Agitation-sedation cycling in ICU patients is characterised by oscillations between states of agitation and over-sedation. This cycling damages health and increases both length of stay and health care cost. A mathematical ...
    • Objective speech quality measurement for Chinese speech. 

      Chong, Fong Loong (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2005)
      In the search for the optimisation of transmission speed and storage, speech information is often coded, or transmitted with a reduced bandwidth. As a result, quality and/or intelligibility are sometimes degraded. Speech ...
    • Oblique decision trees in transformed spaces. 

      Wickramarachchi, Darshana Chitraka (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2015)
      Decision trees (DTs) play a vital role in statistical modelling. Simplicity and interpretability of the solution structure have made the method popular in a wide range of disciplines. In data classification problems, DTs ...
    • Oblique wave groups in deep water 

      Bryant, Peter John (University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1982)
      Oblique wave groups consist of waves whose straight parallel lines of constant phase are oblique to the straight parallel lines of constant phase of the group. Numerical solutions for periodic oblique wave groups with ...
    • Obscure Openings: Intellectual Freedoms of Rousseau, Agamben and Malabou 

      Rooney, Monique (University of Canterbury, 2016)
    • Observation of changes in model-based insulin sensitivity during haemodialysis transitions for critically ill patients 

      Jamaludin, U.K.; Docherty, P.D.; Chase, J.G.; Le Compte, A.J.; Shaw, G.M. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2012)
      Most critically ill patients exhibit a myriad of symptoms with irregular glycaemic regulation and renal failure contributing to a large proportion of mortality and morbidity. Hence, the effect of dialysis on glycaemic ...
    • Observation of the Incretin Effect in Critically Ill patients 

      Jamaludin, U.; Docherty, P.D.; Chase, J.G.; Preiser, J.C.; Desaive, T.; Shaw, G.M. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2011)
      The impact of endogenous insulin secretion and its interaction with feeding method (enteral - EN or parenteral – PN) in glycemic control protocols is unknown. This study examines whether there is any evidence for an EN – ...
    • Observational extragalactic astronomy : an investigation of southern quasars and related objects 

      Gilmore, G. F. (University of Canterbury. Physics, 1979)
      An observational programme to monitor the optical variability of southern quasars has been established and operated at Mt. John University Observatory. This programme, which is the first in the southern hemisphere, involves ...
    • Observations and inhomogeneity in cosmology 

      Smale, Peter Rich (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2012)
      We interpret distance measurements from nearby galaxies, type Ia supernovae, and gamma-ray bursts in the light of a cosmological model that incorporates a spatial averaging technique to account for the inhomogeneous ...
    • Observations of Middle Atmosphere Dynamics over Antarctica 

      Baumgaertner, Andreas Josef Gerhard (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2007)
