    • Macrodiversity MIMO Transceivers 

      Basnayaka, Dushyantha (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2012)
      In wireless systems, radio signals are corrupted due to fading, interference and noise. In order to handle the effects of fading and interference, modern systems employ various techniques including multi-antenna ...
    • mAGiC DRAGONS: A Protocol for Accurate Glycaemic Control in General Wards 

      Thomas, F.L.; Watson, A.; Tomlinson, H.; Borowczyk, H.; Pretty, C.G.; Fisk, L.; Dickson, J.L.; Chiew, Y.S.; Shaw, G.M.; Chase, J.G. (University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2014)
      Accurate glycaemic control (AGC) has been shown to be beneficial to the outcomes of critically ill patients. These benefits may also extend to patients in less acute wards, particularly those with existing diabetes. However, ...
    • Maintaining 3-connectivity relative to a fixed basis 

      Oxley, J.; Semple, C.; Whittle, G. (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics., 2008)
      A standard matrix representation A of a matroid M represents M relative to a fixed basis B. Deleting rows and columns of A correspond to contracting elements of B and deleting elements of E(M)-B. If M is 3-connected, it ...
    • Maintaining Fire-fighter Tenability in Unsprinklered Single-storey Industrial Buildings using Roof Venting 

      McDonald, Timothy Myles (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2012)
