Grover's quantum algorithm applied to global optimisation
(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics, 2004)
Grover's quantum computational search procedure can provide the basis for implementing adaptive global optimisation algorithms. A brief overview of the procedure is given and a framework called Grover Adaptive Search is ...
Generalised linear mixed models and its application in R
(University of Canterbury, 2009)
Through the benefits of mixed modeling over the usual fixed effects modeling, certain data sets can be better understood. Repeated measures data is especially well suited to mixed models. The repeated measures can be ...
Teaching Geometrical Principles to Design Students
We propose a new method of teaching the principles of geometry to design students. The students focus on a field of design in which geometry is the design: tessellation. We review different approaches to geometry and ...
Teaching computers to see
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2009)
A program was created which enabled 3D reconstruction of a scene given two images from a simple camera. This was achieved using a combination of linear algebra and homogeneous coordinates. The reconstruction was separated ...
Fibonacci numbers and some applications to digital image scrambling
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2007)
An analysis of some recently proposed methods of digital image scrambling that use Fibonacci numbers. This report describes the mathematics required to understand why these methods work.
