      We design a simple algorithm that ranks K largest in Cartesian sums X + Y in O(m + K log K ) time. Based on this, K -maximum subarrays can be computed in O(n + K log K ) time (1D) and O(n3 + K log K ) time (2D) for input ...
    • Rapid one-of-a-kind product development : strategies, algorithms and technology. 

      Xie, Shane Sheng Quan (University of Canterbury. Department of Mechanical Engineering, 2001)
      The globalization of business and industry and the worldwide competitive economy are forcing One-of-a-Kind Production (OKP) enterprises to utilize fully the best available equipment and techniques. The objective is to ...
    • Rapid synchronization control of compressed gas energy storage generator during power grid contingent and extended contingent events. 

      Chen, Yi-Yu (Patrick) (University of Canterbury, 2015)
      Electric power system (EPS) operates with economy, supply reliability, and renewability in mind. This means that the power generated must be cheap, clean, and can rapidly maintain the EPS frequency within the nominal ...
    • Ray Traversal for Incremental Voxel Colouring 

      Batchelor, Oliver William (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2006)
      Image based scene reconstruction from multiple views is an interesting challenge, with many ambiguities and sources of noise. One approach to scene reconstruction is Voxel Colouring, Seitz and Dyer [26], which uses colour ...
    • Rayleigh Damped Magnetic Resonance Elastograpy 

      McGarry, Matthew (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2008)
      A three-dimensional, incompressible, Rayleigh damped magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) material property reconstruction algorithm capable of reconstructing the spatial distribution of both the real and imaginary parts ...
    • Reactive traffic control mechanisms for communication networks with self-similar bandwidth demands 

      Östring, Sven Andrew Mark (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Electronic Engineering, 2001)
      Communication network architectures are in the process of being redesigned so that many different services are integrated within the same network. Due to this integration, traffic management algorithms need to balance the ...
    • Real Time Human Tracking in Unconstrained Environments 

      Gao, Hongzhi (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2011)
      The tabu search particle filter is proposed in this research based on the integration of the modified tabu search metaheuristic optimization and the genetic particle filter. Experiments with this algorithm in real time ...
    • Real time operating systems, with emphasis on the man/machine interface 

      Richards, M. G. (University of Canterbury. Chemical Engineering, 1982)
