  • A data abstraction model 

    Ridwan, M. M.; Loy, Z. (University of Canterbury, 1978)
    An abstract model, called the data abstraction model, is proposed, and the basic DATAM constructs and representations are presented. The use of DATAM in the modelling and representation of the enterprise view of data is ...
  • A digital logic simulator for the Apple Macintosh 

    Wild, Michael (University of Canterbury, 1985)
    The aim of this project was to design a digital logic simulator to run on the Apple Macintosh. It was envisaged that users would be able to design a network of gates, flip-flops and signal sources interactively, then ...

  • Tellabs network monitor : source code listing 

    Weir, Lindsay Brian (University of Canterbury, 1991)
    To install the Tellabs Network Monitor simply run the INST ALL.BAT batch file. This reads (by default) from the original source disk in drive B: and writes to the destination hard drive on drive C:. If any changes ...
  • Ashmon : a monitoring package for prime 50 series machines 

    Ashton, Paul (University of Canterbury, 1984)
    A major objective for all interactive systems is to provide adequate response time performance for terminal users. The best way to find the causes of inadequate response is to examine the behaviour of the components of ...
  • Load balancing by tailoring programs for migration 

    Stewart, Andrew (University of Canterbury, 1994)
    A number of approaches have been taken to the problem of load balancing, most of these centred around the concepts of placement and migration of arbitrary (hopefully compute-intensive) processes. These techniques can be ...
  • An assessment of POSTGRES as a tool for representing Geographical Information Systems 

    Saysell, Philip (University of Canterbury, 1994)
    Geographical databases, such as ARC-INFO, have traditionally been stored in a hybrid database management system, with spatial data stored in one form, and the entity-relationship data stored in another form. There have ...
  • Real-Time Quantitative Analysis and Surface Registration of Medical Scan Data 

    Bentley, Richard (University of Canterbury, 1993)
    Several medical scanning techniques provide data about a volume that is being scanned in a series of slices. The term volume refers to some object of interest being scanned, usually a closed three-dimensional object. ...
  • SimEther: a package for qualitative ethernet simulation 

    van den Nieuwelaar, Martin (University of Canterbury, 1993)
    SimEther is a low level graphical Ethernet simulator. Its main purpose is to aid the lecturer or teacher in demonstrating the Ethernet protocol, and how the associated network, including cable, and Ethernet devices work. ...
  • Assisting World Wide Web Navigation 

    Evans, Carey (University of Canterbury, 1996)
    The rapid growth of the World Wide Web to the large collection of loosely connected pages of information it is today has accentuated the problem of getting "lost in hyperspace." Popular browsers do not provide the support ...
  • Learning to read with computers 

    Kenworthy, Alastair (University of Canterbury, 1986)
    Microcomputers are widespread in schools and are becoming so in centres for special education - the education of people with learning disabilities. Across the curriculum, Computer-Assisted Learning (CAL) has augmented ...
  • Relational cartographic data structures for geographical information systems 

    Pascoe, R. T. (University of Canterbury, 1986)
    The purpose of this project is to investigate the suitability of the relational data model in preference to either the hierarchical data model or the network data model. The reason for considering the suitability of a ...
  • A tool for measuring the effectiveness of university computing services 

    Chen, M (University of Canterbury, 1978)
    The primary aim of this project is to develop a general tool for use in such a comparative investigation. In this process, a pilot study carried out at the University of Canterbury tested hypotheses about user characteristics, ...
  • Packet flow analysis in X.25 public data networks : a simulation tool 

    Reynolds, Paul (University of Canterbury, 1984)
    This report describes a Simula program designed to model the behaviour of X.25 Public Data Networks and produce statistics on various performance indices of the network. These include such indices as: - packet ...
  • Code optimisation for the NZTAB Pascal compiler 

    Douthwaite, Ian M. (University of Canterbury, 1983)
    The aim of this project was optimisation of the code produced by the NZTAB Pascal compiler. This compiler is used for almost all the code in the TAB's nationwide betting system. The desire to improve the performance of ...
  • Performance measurement and optimization of an implementation of stage2 in B6700 algol 

    Naguleswaran, M. (University of Canterbury, 1977)
    Program optimization is the process of changing the organization of a software systems so as to optimize resource utilization. When the program to be optimized is an application program rather than a systems program, the ...
  • A modula-2 cross-compiler for the Macintosh. 

    Gifford, Jonathan (University of Canterbury, 1986)
    There is a Modula-2 cross-compiler available on the Prime, which currently generates code for the Prime. This cross-compiler was developed at ETH (Eidgenössische ...
  • Fast evaluation of radial basis functions : methods for generalised multiquadrics in ℝⁿ 

    Cherrie, J. B.; Beatson, Richard Keith; Newsam, G.N. (University of Canterbury, 2000)
    A generalised multiquadric radial basis function is a function of the form s(x) = ∑ᴺ𝑖₌₁ 𝑑𝑖 𝜙 (𝗅x-t𝑖𝗅), where 𝜙(r) = (r² + 𝝉²)ᵏ/², x ∈ ℝⁿ, and k ∈ Z is odd. The direct evaluation of an N centre generalised ...
  • Experiments in high precision clock synchronisation. 

    Jones, Richard (University of Canterbury, 1993)
    Hardware clocks used in computers tend to drift away from the correct time. In a distributed computer system, each hardware clock drifts away from the correct time at a different rate. In or4er to synchronise the clocks ...
  • Melody recognition systems. 

    Ansley, Carl (University of Canterbury, 1994)
    The aim for this project was to research, design, and provide the basis of an implementation for a real-time melody recognition system. The system should match music hummed or sung by a human with a particular piece in ...
