Optical Music Recognition : Progress Report 1
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 1994)The purpose of writing this report is to record and comment on the work done over the last year. The report will also summarise my main insights into the problem and outline future work. There were three main areas of ... 
Optical Music Recognition: Feature Identification
(University of CanterburyUniversity of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 1995)Although it has been less than a year since the last progress report, work has reached a natural ‘breakpoint’ offering an opportunity to describe what has been accomplished as well as gathering thoughts on the future. For ...

Optical Superlenses: Quality and Fidelity in SilverDielectric NearField Imaging Systems
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, 2011)In the year 2000 John Pendry described a new kind of lens that could focus both the propagating and evanescent components of light. This ‘super’ lens, which took the form of a thin slab of silver with a negative effective ... 
Optical vehicle tracking  A framework and tracking solution
(University of Canterbury, 2004)There are a large number of different approaches to vehicle tracking currently available. In this report we look at different problems faced when tracking vehicles, such as background subtraction and vehicle recognition, ... 
Optical Wavefront Prediction with Reservoir Computing
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2010)Over the last four decades there has been considerable research in the improvement of imaging exoatmospheric objects through air turbulence from groundbased instruments. Whilst such research was initially motivated for ... 
Optimal control of energy usage at the Tasman Mill
(University of Canterbury. Engineering, 1973) 
Optimal irrigation scheduling
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2008)An optimal stochastic multicrop irrigation scheduling algorithm was developed which was able to incorporate complex farm system models, and constraints on daily and seasonal water use, with the objective of maximising ... 
Optimal marine farm structures.
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics, 2003)This thesis documents a new modelling approach for assessing the interplay between marine mussels and their environment, and presents the development of multiscale methodology for addressing the question of optimal ... 
Optimal Mould Design for the Manufacture of HighPrecision Lenses
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2006)The increasing need for lowcost, highprecision optical devices requires innovative manufacturing techniques or the optimization of existing ones. The present study focuses on the latter alternative and proposes a ... 
Optimal onfarm irrigation scheduling with a seasonal water limit using simulated annealing
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2010)As water resources are limited and the demand for agricultural products increases, it becomes increasingly important to use irrigation water optimally. At a farm scale, farmer’s have a particularly strong incentive to ... 
Optimal packetization interval for VoIP applications over IEEE 802.16 networks
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering.University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering., 2006)An analysis of the impact of the packetization interval for constant bit rate traffic is performed in the context of the IEEE 802.16 MAC layer (specifically in the context of IEEE 802.16d, Fixed WiMAX). Bandwidth used for ... 
Optimal Parameter Updating for Optical Diffusion Imaging
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 1998)Because optical diffusion imaging is a highly nonlinear inverse problem, iterative inversion algorithms based on the Born approximation have usually been employed as reconstruction technique, but convergence is slow, ... 
Optimal PEEP  the final solution: Modelbased mechanical ventilation for intensive care
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2012) 
Optimal Positive EndExpiratory Pressure in Mechanically Ventilated Patients: A Clinical Study
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2011)The optimal level of positive endexpiratory pressure (PEEP) is still widely debated in treating acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) patients. Current methods of selecting PEEP only provide a range of values and do ... 
Optimal shape design based on bodyfitted grid generation.
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2014)Shape optimization is an important step in many design processes. With the growing use of Computer Aided Engineering in the design chain, it has become very important to develop robust and efficient shape optimization ... 
Optimal tight glycaemic control supported by differential geometric methods
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2011)Optimal control of an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) metabolic model from nonlinear control point of view is presented in the current paper. The transformation of a clinically validated nonlinear model into a series of ... 
An optimal way of moving a sequence of points onto a curve in two dimensions
(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1997)Let s̲(t), 0 ≤ t ≤ T, be a smooth curve and let x̲i, i = 1, 2, ... , n, be a sequence of points in two dimensions. An algorithm is given that calculates the parameters ti, i = 1,2, ... ,n, that minimize the function ...
