#### Towards pure adaptive search

(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1993)

The algorithm known as Pure Adaptive Search is a global optimisation ideal with desirable complexity. In this paper we temper it to a framework we term
Somewhat Adaptive Search. This retains the desirable complexity, but ...

#### Non-classical 4-dimensional Minkowski planes obtained as brothers of semiclassical 4-dimensional Laguerre planes

(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1998)

We describe the first non-classical 4-dimensional Minkowski planes and show that they have 6-dimensional automorphism groups. These planes are obtained
by a construction of Schroth [18] from generalized quadrangles ...

#### Which cubic spline should one use?

(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1990)

The aim of this paper is to provide a quantitative comparison of eight different C¹ and C² cubic spline interpolation schemes. The C¹ schemes
discussed are local while the C² ones are global.
In practice cubic splines ...

#### Extension operations on sets of leaf-labelled trees

(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1994)

A fundamental problem in classification is how to combine collections of trees having overlapping sets of leaves. The requirement that such a collection
of trees is realized by at least one parent tree determines uniquely ...

#### 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 ...

#### Two new approaches to improve the analysis of BALB/c 3T3 cell transformation assay data

(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2012)

Validation activities of the BALB/c 3T3 cell transformation assay (CTA) – a test method used for the assessment of the carcinogenic potential of compounds – have revealed the need for statistical analysis tailored to ...

#### Existence and uniqueness of algebraic function approximations

(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1989)

The problem of approximating a real-valued, locally analytic function, f(x), by an algebraic function, Q(x) is considered. Existence and uniqueness theorems are obtained
under fairly general conditions, including those ...

#### Budgeted nature reserve selection with diversity feature loss and arbitrary split systems

(University of Canterbury. Department of Mathematics and Statistics, 2010)

Arising in the context of biodiversity conservation, the Budgeted Nature Reserve Selection (BNRS) problem is to select, subject to
budgetary constraints, a set of regions to conserve so that the phylogenetic
diversity ...

#### A family of Minkowski planes over half-ordered fields

(University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1996)

This paper concerns a construction of J. Jakóbowski [7] of Minkowski planes over half-ordered fields. A more group theoretic definition of such planes is given.
Isomorphisms between and automorphisms of these Minkowski ...

#### A Comparison of BWT Approaches to Compressed-Domain Pattern Matching

(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2002)

A number of algorithms have recently been developed to search files compressed with the Burrows-Wheeler Transform (BWT) without the need for full decompression first. This allows the storage requirement of data to be reduced ...
