    • MacDiammer-Design & Implementation 

      Li, Sim Choong (University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1987)
      Data base design is without doubt a complex, challenging and creative process. On the other hand, it can be a tedious and error-prone process as well. The first complexity comes from the fact that high level of interaction ...
    • The making of: Filemaker 

      Bartneck C (De-Bug, 1998)
    • Maps, chaos, and fractals 

      Williams, Phillipa (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2007)
      The behaviour and properties of one-dimensional discrete mappings are explored by writing Matlab code to iterate mappings and draw graphs. Fixed points, periodic orbits, and bifurcations are described and chaos is introduced ...
    • MARS imaging : Computational methods for material decomposition 

      Bateman, Christopher J. (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2012)
      The MARS (Medipix All Resolution System) research group is developing a CT (Computed Tomography) scanner which uses the Medipix range of energy discriminating photon counting detectors. These detectors have the potential ...
    • Mary Had a Little Lambda: Implementing a Minimal Lisp for Assisting with Education 

      Bell, Andrew (University of Canterbury, 2016)
      In this report, we describe the implementation of a minimal version of Lisp for use in teaching programmers who have some experience in another language. We discuss the reasons why learning Lisp is beneficial, and what ...
    • A mathematical model for analysis of the cell cycle in human tumour 

      Basse, B.; Baguley, B. C.; Marshall, E. S.; Joseph, W. R.; van Brunt, B.; Wake, G.; Wall, D. J. N. (University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics, 2002)
      The growth of human cancers is characterised by long and variable cell cycle times that are controlled by stochastic events prior to DNA replication and cell division. Treatment with radiotherapy or chemotherapy induces ...
    • A MATLAB implementation of elliptic curve cryptography 

      Silverwood, Hamish (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2007)
      The ultimate purpose of this project has been the implementation in MATLAB of an Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) system, primarily the Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) key exchange. We first introduce the fundamentals ...
    • A maximal function characterization of weighted Besov-Lipschitz and Triebel-Lizorkin spaces 

      Bui, H.-Q.; Palusynski, M.; Taibleson, M. H. (University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1994)
      We give characterizations of weighted Besov-Lipschitz and Triebel-Lizorkin spaces with A∞ weights via a smooth kernel which satisfies "minimal" moment and Tauberian conditions. The results are stated in terms of the mixed ...
    • Measuring the effectiveness of computing services 

      Burnside, C.M. (University of Canterbury. Department of Computer Science, 1981)
      This project represents the next stage in an on-going research project into the effectiveness of computing services. Traditionally computer services have been evaluated with regard to machine efficiency: however, no matter ...
    • Medium access control protocols for WDM optical networks 

      Mollard, Robert (University of Canterbury, 2001)
      Wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) has emerged as the most popular technology for utilising the huge bandwidth of optical fibre. This paper surveys medium access control protocols for the star, bus and ring WDM ...
    • 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 ...
    • Membrane Action in Fire Exposed Concrete Floor Systems 

      Lim, Linus C. S. (University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 2003)
      The behaviour of reinforced concrete slabs in fire conditions strongly depends on the support conditions and the interaction of the slabs with the surrounding structure. Previous research has shown that compressive restraint ...
    • A Meta-Model for Literature Programming 

      Evans, Tim (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 1999)
      Literate programming is a program development method based on combining source code and documentation in a single file. The separate documents are then automatically extracted by a literate programming tool. This report ...
    • Minimal mergesort. 

      Takaoka, Tadao (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 1997)
      We present a new adaptive sorting algorithm, called minimal merge sort, which merges the ascending runs in the input list from shorter to longer, that is, merging the shortest two lists each time. We show that this algorithm ...
    • Mixed-Use Urban Planning and Development 

      Kusumastuti D; Nicholson A (Building Research Association New Zealand, 2017)
      Urban sprawl, commonly associated with car dependency, is a major worldwide concern for urban planners and policy makers, with “sustainable development” becoming a common policy goal in cities’ long-term plans. Mixed-use ...
    • Mobile Phone Text Entry 

      Butts, Lee (University of Canterbury, 2001)
      The rapid growth of Short Message Service (SMS) text messaging has meant that a fast and efficient text input method is a very important aspect of a mobile phone interface. The best way to test a new method is an empirical ...
    • Mobile text entry 

      Sirisena, Amal (University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 2002)
      There has been a substantial growth in interest in mobile text entry over recent years, among both researchers and users. Increasingly mobile devices are being used to perform text-intensive applications, such as text ...
