The Fallout of Single Glazing under Radiant Heat Exposure
(University of Canterbury, 2011)Glass fallout in windows has the potential to alter the ventilation condition and the behaviour of the fire in a compartment. Therefore, it is of an interest to fire modellers to be able to simulate the behaviour of glass ... 
A family of 2dimensional Minkowski planes with small automorphism groups
(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1994)This paper concerns 2dimensional (topological locally compact connected) Minkowski planes. It uses a construction of J. Jakóbowski [4] of Minkowski planes over halfordered fields and applies it to the field of reals. ... 
A family of Minkowski planes over halfordered fields
(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1996)This paper concerns a construction of J. Jakóbowski [7] of Minkowski planes over halfordered fields. A more group theoretic definition of such planes is given. Isomorphisms between and automorphisms of these Minkowski ... 
A Fast 4x4 Forward Discrete Tchebichef Transform Algorithm
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering., 2007)The discrete Tchebichef transform (DTT) is a transform method based on discrete orthogonal Tchebichef polynomials, which have applications recently found in image analysis and compression. This letter introduces a new fast ... 
A Fast Algorithm for Painterly Rendering on Mobile Devices
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering., 2008)With the rapid growth of mobile graphics applications, nonphotorealistic rendering algorithms developed particularly for devices with limited processor capabilities have become important in the areas of games design and ... 
Fast algorithms and preconditioning techniques for fitting radial basis functions.
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2001)Radial basis functions are excellent interpolators for scattered data in Rd. Previously the use of RBFs had been restricted to small or medium sized data sets due to the high computational cost of solving the interpolation ... 
Fast algorithms for model based therapeutics
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2007)In critical care tight control of glucose has been shown to lead to better clinical outcomes and reductions in length of stay. The need arises to develop new protocols for maintaining tight control of patients' glucose. ... 
Fast algorithms for shortest paths
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1985)The problem of finding all shortest paths in a nonnegatively weighted directed graph is addressed, and a number of new algorithms for solving this problem on a graph of n vertices and m edges are given. The first of ... 
A Fast and Accurate Diagnostic Test for Severe Sepsis Using Kernel Classifiers
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and StatisticsUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2010)Severe sepsis occurs frequently in the intensive care unit (ICU) and is a leading cause of admission, mortality, and cost. Treatment guidelines recommend early intervention, however gold standard blood culture test results ... 
Fast Automated Estimation of Variance in Discrete Quantitative Stochastic Simulation
(University of Canterbury, 2010)Quantitative stochastic simulation is an important tool in assessing the performance of complex dynamic systems such as modern communication networks. Because of the proliferation of computers and devices that use and ...

Six Medipix detectors can be read out at a frame rate of up to 100 Hz. A field programmable gate array ... 
Fast evaluation of radial basis functions : methods for fourdimensional polyharmonic splines
(University of Canterbury. Department of Mathematics & Statistics, 2000)As is now well known for some basic functions ϕ, hierarchical and fast multipole like methods can greatly reduce the storage and operation counts for fitting and evaluating radial basis functions. In particular for spline ... 
Fast evaluation of radial basis functions : methods for generalised multiquadrics in ℝⁿ
(University of Canterbury, 2000)A generalised multiquadric radial basis function is a function of the form s(x) = ∑ᴺ𝑖₌₁ 𝑑𝑖 𝜙 (𝗅xt𝑖𝗅), where 𝜙(r) = (r² + 𝝉²)ᵏ/², x ∈ ℝⁿ, and k ∈ Z is odd. The direct evaluation of an N centre generalised ...
