    • P, an alternative syntax for postscript : user's manual 

      Ewing, Gregory C. (University of Canterbury, 1988)
      The POSTSCRIPT[1,2] graphics programming language was devised by Adobe Systems as a device-independent language for communicating with laser printers and other high-resolution graphical output devices. It was intended ...
    • Packet flow analysis in X.25 public data networks : a simulation tool 

      Reynolds, Paul (University of Canterbury, 1984)
      This report describes a Simula program designed to model the behaviour of X.25 Public Data Networks and produce statistics on various performance indices of the network. These include such indices as: - packet ...
    • Page turning : score automation for musicians 

      McPherson, John R. (University of Canterbury, 1999)
      This report examines various aspects of the use of computers for the purpose of displaying sheet music for musicians. The main focus is on the layout of the displayed music and methods that can be used to simulate ...
    • Pair Production Explained in a Hidden Variable Theory 

      Pons, D.J.; Pons, A.D.; Pons, A.J. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2015)
      Problem- Pair production is a key component of mass-energy equivalence yet the deeper processes whereby photons transform into matter-antimatter pairs are unknown. Purpose- A theory is presented for the mechanics of pair ...
    • Pairing Test and Longitudinal Growth Strain: Establishing the Association 

      Chauhan, S.S. (University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2008)
      Where a log is sawn along the pith to produce two half-round posts the outward warp or bending has been attributed to the presence of growth stress in the standing tree. However this association has not been studied ...
    • Pancake making and surface coating: optimal control of a gravity-driven liquid film 

      Boujo E; Sellier M (2019)
      This paper investigates the flow of a solidifying liquid film on a solid surface subject to a complex kinematics, a process relevant to pancake making and surface coating. The flow is modeled using the lubrication ...
    • Pancreatic Function: An Overview of Modelling, Methods and Considerations 

      Chase JG; Dickson JL; Pretty CG; Shaw G; Desaive T (2017)
    • Pancreatic Insulin Secretion in Critically Ill Patients 

      Pretty, C.G.; Lin, J.; Le Compte, A.J.; Shaw, G.M.; Chase, J.G. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2011)
      Glucose-insulin pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) models can be used for improved glycemic control of critically ill patients. A key component of glucose-insulin PK-PD models is pancreatic insulin secretion. There ...
    • Parallel Implementation of the Box Counting Algorithm in OpenCL 

      Mukundan, R. (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2015)
      The Box Counting algorithm is a well-known method for the computation of the fractal dimension of an image. It is often implemented using a recursive subdivision of the image into a set of regular tiles or boxes. Parallel ...
    • Parallel neurovascular coupling models and associated spreading depression. 

      Kenny, Allanah (University of Canterbury, 2019)
      Neuronal activity evokes a localised increase in cerebral blood flow (CBF) in a response known as neurovascular coupling (NVC). This response is achieved through communication between neurons, astrocytes and vascular ...
    • Parallel Paths of Equal Reliability Assessed using Multi-Criteria Selection for Identifying Priority Expendature 

      Hook, Tristan William (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2013)
      This research project identifies some factors for the justification in having parallel network links of similar reliability. There are two key questions requiring consideration: 1) When is it optimal to have or create two ...
    • Parallel Sequential Estimation of Quantiles During Steady State Simulation 

      Eickhoff, M; Pawlikowski, K; McNickle, D (University of Canterbury, 2012)
      Simulation results are often limited to mean values, even though this provides very limited infor- mation about the analyzed systems' performance. Quantile analysis provides much deeper insights into the performance of ...

    • Parallel text compression 

      Nevill, C. (University of Canterbury, 1989)
      Parallel texts come in two forms: either the two texts are in the same language, or in two different languages. The most common origin of a pair of parallel texts is some translation process. A text may be available in ...
    • Parallel text compression : source 

      Nevill, C. (University of Canterbury, 1989)
    • Parallelism for Performance in AR Applications 

      Gu, X.; Gough, C.; Billinghurst, M. (University of Canterbury. Human Interface Technology Laboratory., 2004)
      Augmented Reality (AR) applications are highly performance critical applications. Because they insert themselves between the user's senses and the real world, it is crucial that they run as fast as possible to provide ...
    • Parallelization of a software based intrusion detection system - Snort 

      Zhang, Huan (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2011)
      Computer networks are already ubiquitous in people’s lives and work and network security is becoming a critical part. A simple firewall, which can only scan the bottom four OSI layers, cannot satisfy all security requirements. ...
