An O(n 3 log log n/ log n) Time Algorithm for the AllPairs Shortest Path Problem
(University of Canterbury, 2004)We design a faster algorithm for the allpairs shortest path problem under the conventional RAM model, based on distance matrix multiplication (DMM). Specifically we improve the best known time complexity of O(n 3 (log ... 
An O(n 3 log log n/ log2 n) Time Algorithm for All Pairs Shortest Paths
(University of Canterbury, 2002)Given an input directed graph G = (V, E), the all pairs shortest path problem (APSP) is to compute the shortest paths between all pairs of vertices of G assuming that edge costs are real values. The APSP problem is a ... 
OASIS : an object oriented animation system in Scheme.
(University of Canterbury, 1987)The main aim of this project is to develop an animation system for simple geometric objects. Of course this is not a very clear definition of what is required. While working on this project, the objectives to be reached ... 
Object Oriented Metrics: Precision Tools and Configurable Visualisations
(Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, University of CanterburyUniversity of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2003)Software metrics are a valuable tool in helping software engineers to develop large, complex software systems. However, it is vital that transparency and precision are maintained at all stages. We contend that without ... 
Objectoriented model representation for control systems analysis
(University of Canterbury, 1988)The representation of systems is a key issue in system theory and computeraided control engineering. This paper discusses different ways to represent systems and suggests an approach based on objectoriented programming ... 
An ObjectOriented Semantic Model for .NET
(University of Canterbury, 2005)Software engineering is a complex activity requiring software engineers to understand an intricate structure of components, with many different interrelationships. In objectoriented software, these components include ... 
Objective measurements of patient agitation in critical care using physiological signals and fuzzy systems
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2005)Agitationsedation cycling in ICU patients is characterised by oscillations between states of agitation and oversedation. This cycling damages health and increases both length of stay and health care cost. A mathematical ... 
Objective speech quality measurement for Chinese speech.
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2005)In the search for the optimisation of transmission speed and storage, speech information is often coded, or transmitted with a reduced bandwidth. As a result, quality and/or intelligibility are sometimes degraded. Speech ... 
Oblique decision trees in transformed spaces.
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2015)Decision trees (DTs) play a vital role in statistical modelling. Simplicity and interpretability of the solution structure have made the method popular in a wide range of disciplines. In data classification problems, DTs ... 
Oblique wave groups in deep water
(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1982)Oblique wave groups consist of waves whose straight parallel lines of constant phase are oblique to the straight parallel lines of constant phase of the group. Numerical solutions for periodic oblique wave groups with ... 
Observation of changes in modelbased insulin sensitivity during haemodialysis transitions for critically ill patients
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2012)Most critically ill patients exhibit a myriad of symptoms with irregular glycaemic regulation and renal failure contributing to a large proportion of mortality and morbidity. Hence, the effect of dialysis on glycaemic ... 
Observation of the Incretin Effect in Critically Ill patients
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2011)The impact of endogenous insulin secretion and its interaction with feeding method (enteral  EN or parenteral – PN) in glycemic control protocols is unknown. This study examines whether there is any evidence for an EN – ... 
Observed Ground Motions in the 4 September 2010 Darfield and 22 February 2011 Christchurch Earthquakes
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2012)This paper provides an overview of the salient aspects of the dense array of ground motions observed in the 4 September 2010 Darfield and 22 February 2011 Christchurch earthquakes. Particular attention is given to inferred ... 
Obtaining forest description for smallscale forests using an integrated remote sensing approach
(University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2015) 
Obtaining forest description for smallscale forests using an integrated remote sensing approach
(University of Canterbury, 2017)The estimated total forest plantation area in New Zealand is approximately 1.70 million ha. Approximately 70% of the plantations with area over 1000 ha are owned by largescale owners, whose forests undergo regular monitoring ... 
Offdiagonal 24 damping technology using semiactive resetable devices
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering.University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering., 2006)Semiactive resetable devices are an emerging and effective method of minimising structural degradation due to environmental loads. Of particular importance in implementing supplemental damping, such as resetable devices, ... 
Offset Banking in New Zealand: towards sustainable development, with insight from international models
(University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2011)Biodiversity loss is an important issue for New Zealand: for the domestic environment, economy and society, but also for New Zealand as a member of the international community. Biodiversity offset banking is making an ... 
Omnidirectional gait generating algorithm for hexapod robot
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2002)Walking robots have long been proposed as solutions to the problem of mobile machines operating in unstructured and natural environments because they can traverse relatively large obstacles and avoid dangerous or sensitive ... 
On 4dimensional elation Laguerre planes admitting simple lie groups of automorphisms
(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1997)This paper concerns 4dimensional ( topological locally compact connected) elation Laguerre planes that admit large automorphism groups. In particular, it is shown that such a plane is classical if its automorphism group ... 
On 4dimensional Minkowski planes with 7dimensional automorphism group
(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1993)This paper concerns 4dimensional (topological locally compact connected) Minkowski planes that admit a 7dimensional automorphism group 𝚺. It is shown that such a plane is either classical or has a distinguished ...
