    • Explosion induced structural response: An overview 

      Dhakal, R.P. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2004)
      This paper presents a conceptual discussion on structural response to ground shocks. Nonlinear finite element analyses on a 2-storey RC frame subjected to explosion-induced ground shocks are carried out to investigate ...
    • Exposing 3-separations in 3-connected matroids. 

      Oxley, James; Semple, Charles; Whittle, Geoff (2009)
      Let 𝑀 be a 3-connected matroid other than a wheel or a whirl. In the next paper in this series, we prove that there is an element whose deletion from 𝑀 or 𝑀∗ is 3-connected and whose only 3- separations are equivalent ...
    • Expressive MPEG-4 Facial Animation Using Quadratic Deformation Models

      In this paper we propose an approach compliant with the MPEG-4 standard to synthesize and control facial expressions generated using 3D facial models. This is achieved by establishing the MPEG-4 facial animation standard ...
    • Extended meshfree methods without branch enrichment for cohesive cracks 

      Zi, G.; Rabczuk, T.; Wall, W.A. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2007)
      An extended meshless method for both static and dynamic cohesive cracks is proposed. This new method does not need any crack tip enrichment to guarantee that the crack closes at the tip. All cracked domains of influence ...

      Zhang, M.; Smith, P.J.; Shafi, M. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering., 2007)
      In this paper we develop a multiple input multiple output (MIMO) channel model and derive its spatial and temporal correlation properties. We present a generalized methodology to derive the spatial correlation when the ...
    • Extended Policy-Based Management Framework to Provide Always Best Connected Services in Heterogeneous Mobile Environments. 

      Keshariya, Mayank (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2009)
      The growth in the popularity of Internet services, increasing demands of mobile users together with a wide range of access technologies and mobile-networked devices, introduces the notion of integration and inter-working ...
    • Extending Galton's Binomial Quincunx to the Trinomial Septcunx 

      Harlow, Jennifer; Ashman, B.; Sainudiin, R. (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2009)
      This paper discusses the development of graphical user interfaces (GUIs) to illustrate sampling from a trinomial distribution by the natural extension of Galton’s Quincunx to three dimensions.
    • Extending the limits of supertree methods 

      Bordewich, M.; Evans, G.; Semple, C. (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics., 2006)
      Recently, two exact polynomial-time supertree methods have been developed in which the traditional input of rooted leaf-labelled trees has been extended in two separate ways. The first method, called RankedTree, allows for ...
    • An Extensible Framework for Collaborative Software Engineering 

      Cook, C.; Churcher, N. (Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, University of CanterburyUniversity of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2003)
      The size, complexity and duration of typical software engineering projects means that teams of developers will work on them. However, with the exception of version control systems, the editors, diagrammers and other tools ...

    • Extensible optical music recognition 

      Bainbridge, David (University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1997)
      The aim of Optical Music Recognition (OMR) is to convert optically scanned pages of music into a versatile machine-readable format. Existing work has achieved this aim for restricted sets of music notation. Here we investigate ...
    • Extension of Quickest Spectrum Sensing to Multiple Antennas and Rayleigh Channels 

      Hanafi, E.; Martin, P.A.; Smith, P.J.; Coulson, A.J. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2013)
      In this letter, we study quickest spectrum sensing for cognitive radios with multiple receive antennas in Gaussian and Rayleigh channels. We derive the probability density function for the fading case and analytically ...
    • Extension operations on sets of leaf-labelled trees 

      Bryant, David James; Steel, M.A. (University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1994)
      A fundamental problem in classification is how to combine collections of trees having overlapping sets of leaves. The requirement that such a collection of trees is realized by at least one parent tree determines uniquely ...
    • External validation and sub-cohort analysis of stochastic forecasting models in NICU cohorts 

      Dickson, J.L.; Floyd, R.P.; LeCompte, A.J.; Fisk, L.M.; Chase, J.G.; Lynn, A.; Shaw, G.M. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2013)
      Hyperglycaemia is a prevalent complication in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and is associated with worsened outcomes. It occurs as a result of prematurity, under-developed endogenous glucose regulatory systems, ...
