  • Dynamic Conditioning: Preparation of actors for the delivery of dynamic performance

    Sturgess-Monks, Nicholas (University of Waikato, 2013)
    This thesis represents an attempt to establish, and develop, a methodology for the preparation of actors for delivery of a physically and vocally dynamic performance, informed by the fact of theatrical immediacy. Specifically, ...
  • Dynamic correlation analysis of financial contagion in Asian markets in global financial turmoil

    Yiu, Matthew S.; Ho, Wai-Yip Alex; Choi, Daniel F.S. (Taylor and Francis, 2010)
    This article investigates the dynamics of correlation between 11 Asian stock markets and the US stock market. By utilizing the method of 'principal components', we identify a single latent factor that can explain a major ...
  • Dynamic digital library construction and configuration

    Bainbridge, David; Don, Katherine J.; Buchanan, George; Witten, Ian H.; Jones, Steve; Jones, Matt; Barr, Malcolm I. (Springer, 2004)
    This paper describes a digital library architecture and implementation that is configurable, extensible and dynamic in the way it presents content and in the services it provides. The design manifests itself as a network ...
  • Dynamic Electroporation Modelling

    Talele, Sadhana (The University of Waikato, 2009)
    In this thesis, modelling and simulation of the effects of electric fields on a single spherical cell are undertaken. Of interest is the effect that different electric field waveforms have on the induced transmembrane ...
  • Dynamic equilibrium in applied geomorphology: Two case studies

    Douglas, Ian (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Engineering works and agricultural activity which change the relationship between rainfall and river flow lead to modifications of river channels with attendant erosion and deposition problems. In the Swiss Jura Lakes area, ...
  • Dynamic magnetic reconnection at an X-type neutral point

    Craig, Ian J.D.; McClymont, A.N. (1991)
    The relaxation of a two-dimensional "X-type" neutral point magnetic field disturbed from equilibrium is considered. Perturbations are shown to possess well-defined azimuthal modes which allow an exact determination of the ...
  • Dynamic magnetic reconnection in three space dimensions: Fan current solutions

    Craig, Ian J.D.; Fabling, R.B. (1998-03)
    The problem of incompressible, nonlinear magnetic reconnection in three-dimensional "open" geometries is considered. An analytic treatment shows that dynamic "fan current" reconnection may be driven by superposing long ...
  • Dynamic modelling of a three-sector transitional economy

    Lim, Steven; Harland, Derek (Dept. of Economics, University of Waikato, 2001-10)
    Rural industry provides inputs and markets for agriculture, which in turn provides inputs and markets for rural industry. As the mutually supportive linkages between rural industry and agriculture develop, the size of both ...
  • Dynamic planar magnetic reconnection solutions for incompressible plasmas

    Craig, Ian J.D.; Watson, P.G. (1999-05)
    The planar magnetic reconnection problem for viscous, resistive plasmas is addressed. We show that solutions can be developed by superposing transient nonlinear disturbances onto quiescent “background” fields. The disturbance ...
  • Dynamic Properties of Magnetorheological Elastomers Based on Iron Sand and Natural Rubber

    Shuib, Raa Khimi; Pickering, Kim L.; Mace, Brian R. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2015-02-20)
    In this study, magnetorheological elastomers (MREs) based on iron sand and natural rubber were prepared. The Taguchi method was employed to investigate the effect of a number of factors, namely, the iron sand content, iron ...
  • Dynamic three-dimensional reconnection in a separator geometry with two null points

    Pontin, D.I.; Craig, Ian J.D. (2006-05)
    The dynamic behavior of disturbances in the vicinity of a pair of magnetically connected three-dimensional null points is examined. The aim is to investigate how nonlinear disturbances lead to strong localized currents ...
  • The dynamic transition in proteins may have a simple explanation

    Daniel, Roy M.; Finney, John L.; Smith, Jeremy C. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2003)
    The transition that has been observed in the dynamics of hydrated proteins at low temperatures (180–230 K) is normally interpreted as a change from vibrational, harmonic motion at low temperatures to anharmonic motions as ...
  • Dynamical age of solar wind turbulence in the outer heliosphere

    Matthaeus, William H.; Smith, Charles W.; Oughton, Sean (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 1998)
    In an evolving turbulent medium, a natural timescale can be defined in terms of the energy decay time. The time evolution may be complicated by other effects such as energy supply due to driving, and spatial inhomogeneity. ...
  • Dynamical finite-amplitude magnetic reconnection at an X-type neutral point

    McClymont, A.N.; Craig, Ian J.D. (1996)
    The linear theory of magnetic reconnection demonstrates that the rate of energy release at an X-type neutral point is "fast" - only logarithmically dependent on the plasma resistivity - if the field is strictly two-dimensional, ...
  • Dynamics and dispersion in the coastal boundary layer off Coffs Harbour in Eastern Australia

    Pritchard, Timothy Roger; Holden, Clive; Lee, Randall; Black, Kerry P.; Healy, Terry R. (Coastal Education & Research Foundation, 2007)
    Time series analysis and model simulations defined dynamics of coastal boundary layer formation off Coffs Harbour based on four deployed acoustic Doppler current (ADCP) meters and wind data from Coffs Harbour airport. ...
  • Dynamics and precursor signs for phase transitions in neural systems

    Negahbani, Ehsan (University of Waikato, 2014)
    This thesis investigates neural state transitions associated with sleep, seizure and anaesthesia. The aim is to address the question: How does a brain traverse the critical threshold between distinct cortical states, both ...
  • The Dynamics of Blog Peer Feedback In ESL Classroom

    Gedera, Dilani S.P. (2012)
    Over the past decade aspects pertinent to the area of feedback have been extensively explored by researchers. While some of the studies show positive effects of peer review, others discuss its problematic areas. In spite ...
