#### Teaching Geometrical Principles to Design Students

(2009)

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 ...

#### Shortest path algorithms for nearly acyclic directed graphs

(University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 1997)

Abuaiadh and Kingston gave an efficient algorithm for the single source shortest path problem for a nearly acyclic graph with O(m+n log t) computing time, where m and n are the numbers of edges and vertices of the given ...

#### The CARToptimizer package version 1.0 user's guide

(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics, 2012)

The CARToptimizer package is a suite of MATLAB functions for solving numerical
optimization problems. The suite has algorithms for local, global and constrained optimization
problems, where the objective function can be ...

#### Steady state simulation of queueing processes : a survey of problems and solutions

(University of Canterbury, 1988)

For years computer-based stochastic simulation has been a commonly used tool in the performance evaluation of various systems. Unfortunately results of some studies can be given little credibility, since they are presented ...

#### The Design and Implementation of a Linear Equation Teaching Package for the Apple Computer

(University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1983)

Having chosen a career of teaching maths at secondary school level, it was decided to undertake a research project which would be relevant to this, and also have some practical value. Thus, I approached the head of the ...

#### Heuristic Rules for Improving Quality of Results from Sequential Stochastic Discrete-Event Simulation

(University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2012)

Sequential analysis of output data during stochastic discrete-event simulation is a very effective practical way of controlling statistical errors of final
simulation results. Such stochastic sequential simulation evolves ...

#### Pseudo-random number generators for massively parallel discrete-event simulation.

(University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2012)

A significant problem faced by scientific investigation of complex modern systems is that credible simulation studies of such systems on single computers can frequently not be finished in a feasible time. Discrete-event ...

#### 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.
