Equivalent methods for global optimization
(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1995)
The envelope used by the algorithm of Breiman and Cutler  can be smoothed to create a better algorithm. This is equivalent to an accelerated algorithm developed by the third author and Cutler in  using envelopes ...
Locating a tree in a phylogenetic network
(University of Canterbury, 2010)
Phylogenetic trees and networks are leaf-labelled graphs that are used to describe evolutionary histories of species. The TREE CONTAINMENT problem asks whether a given phylogenetic tree is embedded in a given phylogenetic ...
Impact of glucocorticoids on insulin resistance in the critically ill
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and StatisticsUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2011)
Glucocorticoids (GCs) have been shown to reduce insulin sensitivity in healthy individuals. Widely used in critical care to treat a variety of inflammatory and allergic disorders, they may inadvertently exacerbate ...
Rapid evaluation of least squares and minimum evolution criteria on phylogenetic trees
(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1997)
We present fast new algorithms for evaluating trees with respect to least squares and minimum evolution (ME), the most commonly used criteria for inferring phylogenetic trees from distance data. These include: an ...
