      Hosking, Rosalie (University of Canterbury, 2016)
      Between the 17th and 19th centuries, mathematically orientated votive tablets appeared in Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples all over Japan. Known as sangaku, they contained problems of a largely geometrical nature. The ...
    • The Sato-Tate Distribution in Thin Parametric Families of Elliptic Curves 

      Bretèche RDL; Sha M; Shparlinski IE; Voloch JF (2015)
      We obtain new results concerning the Sato-Tate conjecture on the distribution of Frobenius traces over single and double parametric families of elliptic curves. We consider these curves for values of parameters having ...

      Water for irrigation in the Canterbury region of New Zealand is becoming an increasingly precious commodity as it is in many other areas of the world. Adequate use of this resource will define the economical and environmental ...
    • Scaffolding and Fading Problem Selection in SQL-Tutor 

      Mitrovic, A.; Martin, B. (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering., 2003)
      Scaffolding is widely accepted as an effective strategy to use in learning environments. It is also agreed that for successful learning, scaffolding must fade to allow the learner to be in control of his/her own learning ...
    • Scaffolding answer explanation in a data normalization tutor 

      Mitrovic, A. (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering., 2005)
      Self-explanation is one of the most effective learning strategies, resulting in deep knowledge. In this paper, we discuss how NORMIT supports self-explanation. NORMIT is a constraint-based tutor that teaches data normalization. ...
    • Scalable and adaptable security modelling and analysis. 

      Hong, Jin Bum (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2015)
      Modern networked systems are complex in such a way that assessing the security of them is a difficult task. Security models are widely used to analyse the security of these systems, which are capable of evaluating the ...
    • A scalable method for the production of pH responsive polyamide microcapsules for drug delivery 

      Kelton, William James (University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering, 2008)
      A scalable method for the synthesis of polyethylene terephthalamide microcapsules grafted with polyacrylic acid to enable pH responsiveness has been developed. Microcapsules were produced by interfacial polymerisation of ...
    • A Scalable Middleware-Based Active Network Architecture for Next Generation Communications 

      Cook, C.; Krishnan, P.; Pawlikowski, K.; Sirisena, H.R. (Department of Computer Science & Software Engineering, University of CanterburyUniversity of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2001)
      In conventional data communication networks, the basic network components such as workstations and routers are passive, in which routing decisions are made solely on the basis of the packet header information. In contrast, ...
    • A Scalable Middleware-Based Active Network Architecture for Next Generation Communications 

      Cook, Carl; Krishnan, Paddy; Pawlikowski, Krzysztof (University of Canterbury, 2001)
      In conventional data communication networks, the basic network components such as workstations and routers are passive, in which routing decisions are made solely on the basis of the packet header information. In contrast, ...
    • Scale invariant means and the first digit problem 

      Renaud, P. F. (University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1998)
      It is a well established fact that in some circumstances, lists of what appear to be random numbers, show a striking non-uniform distribution of digits. In many instances, these numbers arise relative to a system of ...
    • Scaled-down modelling and microprocessor facilities for the simulation and assessment on HVDC convertor disturbances. 

      Hisha, Horoshi (University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1983)
      Aimed at the eventual implementation of direct digital control and protection in a.c./d.c. power systems, this thesis describes the design of a thyristor convertor model and an interrupt-driven multiple microprocessor ...
