#### Quantum mechanics and many-body problems effective operators in atomic energy level z-expansion calculations.

(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1972)

Rajnak and Wybourne's effective operators are generalized to degenerate ground configurations ℓN and ℓ'4ℓ' ℓN+2 as well as by removing the assumption of a Hartree-Fock basis. Explicit calculation of discrete radial integrals ...

#### Stratospheric circulation : a narrowband filter spectrophotometer for total ozone determination

(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1975)

This thesis describes the use of ultraviolet narrowband interference filters in the spectrophotometric determination of local atmospheric total ozone burdens.
An investigation of a prototype interference filter ...

#### Electron correlation in diatomic molecules

(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1977)

This thesis investigates the use of some new techniques in obtaining approximate solutions to Schrodingers equation for diatomic molecules. The aim of this work was to develop some general methods that could be applied to ...

#### Internucleon potentials and the correlation problem in nuclei

(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1976)

An investigation is made into the choice of internucleon potentials which are appropriate for nuclear structure calculations. Methods of constructing and calculating effective interactions are suggested and tested for ...

#### A pulse compression radar system for high-resolution ionospheric sounding

(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1977)

A low frequency pulse compression radar system, capable of 0.75 km spatial resolution, has been developed. This system utilizes a linear frequency-modulated signal, and yields an effective peak power enhancement of 14.5 ...

#### The W Ursae Majoris systems : interpretation of light curves and line profiles

(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1971)

A method for the computer synthesis of theoretical light curves and like profiles for close binary stars in general has been developed and applied to the W Ursae Majoris stars. The geometry has been calculated using the ...

#### The Zeeman-Raman and -infrared spectra of transition-metal ions : in single crystals

(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1977)

The results of Raman and infrared investigations of the spectra of Co²⁺ ions in CsCdCl₃ and CsMgCl₃are reported. These ions substitute for the divalent cations in these double chlorides and experience a trigonal crystal ...

#### A theoretical investigation of low energy proton on hydrogen collisions

(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1976)

The Proton on Hydrogen collision problem is treated in the time-dependent formalism using a new self-consistent nuclear trajectory model in conjunction with a simple semi-classical approximation. In this method the nuclear ...

#### Atmospheric Ozone.

(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1971)

The development of a physically compact, light, robust and relatively cheap filter ozonometer for measuring the amount of ozone in the atmosphere is discussed.
Ozone data from the filter instrument and a Dobson ...

#### Hydromagnetic waves in a buoyant medium

(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1976)

Lighthill has suggested that magnetic fields can transform gravity waves into Alfvén waves. The behaviour of gravity waves in an incompressible and infinitely conducting atmosphere is examined so as to check this suggestion. ...
