#### Intensive Control Insulin-Nutrition-Glucose Model Validated in Critically Ill Patients

(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mathematics and StatisticsUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2010)

A comprehensive, more physiologically relevant Intensive Control Insulin-Nutrition-
Glucose (ICING) Model is presented and validated using data from critically ill patients. Glucose utilisation and its endogenous production ...

#### A Korovkin theorem for AL-spaces

(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1982)

#### Takenings, rames and mills : structures for the modelling of branching

(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1987)

A takening is a combinatorial structure composed of points and rays. A ray is a finite sequence of at least two points, and two rays have at most one point in common, which must be the foot (initial point) of at least ...

#### A supertree method for rooted trees

(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1999)

The amalgamation of leaf-labelled (phylogenetic) trees on overlapping leaf sets into one (super)tree is a central problem in several areas of
classification, particularly evolutionary biology. In this paper, we describe ...

#### Group divisible designs with two associate classes

(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1995)

The work in this research report was done while visiting The University of Canterbury, and was completed jointly in cooperation with H.L. Fu and D. Sarvate. These results
follow upon previous efforts where we were ...

#### Optimising hashing functions with genetic algorithms

(University of Canterbury, 1991)

Genetic algorithms (aka GA's) are a robust global search strategy that ignore local minima and irrelevant parameters, suitable for large search spaces. It is based on an analogy with natural evolution and survival of the ...

#### Queueing Models With Finite and Infinite Buffering Capacity : A Comparative Study

(University of Canterbury, 1991)

Queueing theory offers a large variety of techniques that can be used in performance modelling of computer systems and data communication networks. The diversity of assumptions causes that the numerical results, obtained ...

#### Identifying phylogenetic trees

(University of Canterbury, 2004)

A central problem that arises in evolutionary biology is that of displaying partitions of subsets of a finite set X on a tree whose vertices are partially labelled with the elements of X. Such a tree is called an X-tree ...

#### Habitat Modeling of Alien Plant Species at Varying Levels of Occupancy

(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2012)

Distribution models of invasive plants are very useful tools for conservation
management. There are challenges in modeling expanding populations, especially in a
dynamic environment, and when data are limited. In this ...

#### The use of alignment in ancient near Eastern mathematics

(University of Canterbury, 2012)

Cuneiform texts from the ancient near east include the oldest written mathematics in
the world. These texts did not use symbolism to communicate mathematical operations,
unlike modern mathematics. The hypothesis of this ...
