    • Superresolution of magnetic resonance images 

      Alwesh, Nawar S. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Electronic Engineering, 2000)
      Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to image parts of the body using only electromagnetic interaction with the body's own atomic nuclei (hydrogen protons, in particular). The complex amplitude is directly measured at ...
    • A supertree algorithm for higher taxa 

      Daniel, Philip; Semple, Charles (University of Canterbury, 2003)
      Most supertree algorithms combine collections of rooted phylogenetic trees with overlapping leaf sets into a single rooted phylogenetic tree (for example, see [1, 4, 6, 7]). Implicit in all of these algorithms is that the ...
    • Supertree algorithms for ancestral divergence dates and nested taxa 

      Semple, C.; Daniel, P.; Page, R. D. M.; Hordijk, W.; Steel, M. (University of Canterbury, 2003)
      Most supertree methods use just leaf-labelled phylogenetic trees to infer the resulting supertree. In this paper, we describe several new supertree algorithms that extend the allowable information that can be used for ...
    • Supertree algorithms for ancestral divergence dates and nested taxa 

      Semple, C.; Daniel, P.; Hordijk, W.; Page, R.D.M.; Steel, M. (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics., 2004)
      Supertree methods have been often identified as a possible approach to the reconstruction of the ‘Tree of Life’. However, a limitation of such methods is that, typically, they use just leaf-labelled phylogenetic trees to ...
    • A supertree method for rooted trees 

      Semple, Charles; Steel, M. A. (University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1999)
      The amalgamation of leaf-labelled (phylogenetic) trees on overlapping leaf sets into one (super)tree is a central problem in several areas of classification, particularly evolutionary biology. In this paper, we describe ...

    • Supply and demand is not sustainable 

      Krumdieck, S.; Dantas, A.; Burton, T. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2004)
      What does a sustainable society look like? Prior to the industrial revolution, local societies developed and organized their resource utilisation with regard to living within the environmental constraints of their ...
    • Supporting learning by opening the student model 

      Hartley, D.; Mitrovic, A. (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering., 2002)
      Intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) provide individualised instruction by maintaining models of their students. Traditionally, these models have been hidden from the student. However, recent work in the area has ...
    • Supporting Novices and Advanced Students in Acquiring Multiple Coding Skills 

      Fabic GV; Mitrovic A; Neshatian K (APSCE, 2018)
      We present our study on PyKinetic with various activities to target several skills: code tracing, debugging, and code writing. Half of the participants (control group) received the problems in a fixed order, while for ...
    • Supporting OO Design Heuristics 

      Churcher, N.; Frater, S.; Huynh, C.P.; Irwin, W. (Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, University of CanterburyUniversity of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Human Interface Technology Laboratory, 2006)
      Heuristics have long been recognised as a way to tackle problems which are intractable because of their size or complexity. They have been used in software engineering for purposes such as identification of favourable ...
    • Supporting OO Design Heuristics 

      Churcher, Neville; Frater, Sarah; Huynh, Cong Phuoc; Irwin, Warwick (University of Canterbury, 2006)

    • Surface colour change in wood during drying above and below fibre saturation point 

      McCurdy, M.C.; Pang, S.; Keey, R.B. (University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering., 2006)
      A technique has been developed to measure the surface colour change in a single wood sample during drying. This method is useful for studying the development of kiln brown stain. The wood sample is planed carefully in ...

      Somasundaram, Balaji (University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering, 2013)
      The outbreak of pandemic influenza and its ability to spread rapidly makes it a severe threat to public health. Antiviral drugs such as oseltamivir (Roche’s Tamiflu™) and zanamivir (GlaxoSmithKline’s Relenza™) are neuraminidase ...
