#### On variant means and applications to ergodic theory and harmonic analysis

(University of Canterbury. Mathematics, 1971)

This thesis is concerned with the existence and properties of invariant means on certain Banach spaces and their applications to ergodic theory and harmonic analysis. The principal results obtained are as follows.
Let G ...

#### Filamentary oxide formation on iron

(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 1975)

The oxidation of iron in air or oxygen at temperatures between 300°C and 800°C is accompanied by the growth of filamentary crystals from the outer oxide surface. Below 470°C the predominant crystal habit is pointed platelets ...

#### The analysis of travelling waves on power system transmission lines.

(University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1974)

This thesis is concerned with the mathematical representation of, and the analysis of travelling waves on, power system transmission lines.
The transmission lines are described mathematically by the Telegrapher's equations. ...

#### Multi algebras & related structures

(University of Canterbury. Mathematics, 1979)

This thesis investigates the properties of two algebraic structures - multialgebras and partially ordered universal algebras. Multialgebras generalize the concept of a universal algebra to multivalued operations. Unlike ...

#### Ultrasonic determination of the internal structure of solids

(University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1970)

This project commenced from the concept that some of the wide variety of signal processing techniques developed in radar and sonar systems should be capable of useful application in the field of materials inspection. The ...

#### Thermal stresses in concrete structures.

(University of Canterbury, 1978)

This thesis considers the thermal response of mass concrete
structures under heat-of-hydration effects, and of cracked reinforced
and partially prestressed concrete bri.dges under diurnal insolation
and ambient thermal ...

#### Abstractions in data base system architecture

(University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1979)

Levels of abstraction in data base system architecture are investigated. A diagrammatic representation of abstract machines in a data base system is presented.
Two major levels in a coexistence architecture: the data ...

#### Structure of a rural atmospheric boundary layer near the ground.

(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 1978)

This thesis describes instrumentation and software developed to make detailed measurements of wind structure in the lower part of the planetary boundary layer.
The instrumentation is based on a 190 mm diameter four bladed ...

#### The null field approach to diffraction theory

(University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1976)

The diffraction of both scalar and vector monochromatic waves by totally-reflecting bodies is considered from a computational viewpoint. Both direct and inverse scattering are covered. By invoking the optical extinction ...

#### The computer as a musicianship teaching aid.

(University of Canterbury. Department of Electrical Engineering, 1979)

Computer programs have been developed to assist music educators
in three fields: aural training, traditional harmony instruction,
and piano teaching. The computerized aid is incorporated in a
small computer with graphics ...
