  • The basis of equality

    Cupit, Geoffrey (CAMBRIDGE UNIV PRESS, 2000)
    It is often said that justice requires equality. Which kind of equality justice requires is, of course, a matter of dispute: it is widely held that in a just society there must be equality before the law, and equality of ...
  • Batch-Incremental Learning for Mining Data Streams

    Holmes, Geoffrey; Kirkby, Richard Brendon; Bainbridge, David (University of Waikato, 2004)
    The data stream model for data mining places harsh restrictions on a learning algorithm. First, a model must be induced incrementally. Second, processing time for instances must keep up with their speed of arrival. Third, ...
  • Batch-incremental versus instance-incremental learning in dynamic and evolving data

    Read, Jesse; Bifet, Albert; Pfahringer, Bernhard; Holmes, Geoffrey (Springer, 2012)
    Many real world problems involve the challenging context of data streams, where classifiers must be incremental: able to learn from a theoretically- infinite stream of examples using limited time and memory, while being ...
  • The battery company, formed to operate the Firth and Clark Battery at Waiorongomai

    Hart, Philip (Historical Research Unit, University of Waikato, 2016)
    The Battery Company was a private one, and although there were hints that other shareholders existed, only Josiah Clifton Firth and James McCosh Clark were known to be its owners. Firth was the more prominent of the two, ...
  • Bay of Plenty Region and its Territorial Authorities: Demographic Profile 1986 - 2031

    Jackson, Natalie; Rarere, Moana; Pawar, Shefali (National Institute of Demographic and Economic Analysis (NIDEA), 2013-12)
    This report outlines the demographic changes that have occurred in Bay of Plenty Region, as well as what trends are expected in the future.
  • Bayesian conjoint choice designs for measuring willingness to pay

    Vermeulen, Bart; Goos, Peter; Scarpa, Riccardo; Vandebroek, Martina (Springer, 2010)
    In this paper, we propose a new criterion for selecting efficient conjoint choice designs when the interest is in quantifying willingness to pay (WTP). The new criterion, which we call the WTP-optimality criterion, is based ...
  • Bayesian evaluation of the southern hemisphere radiocarbon offset during the holocene

    Hogg, Alan G.; Ramsey, Christopher Bronk; Turney, Chris S.M.; Palmer, Jonathan G. (Arizona Board of Regents on behalf of the University of Arizona, 2009)
    While an interhemispheric offset in atmospheric radiocarbon levels from AD 1950–950 is now well established, its existence earlier in the Holocene is less clear, with some studies reporting globally uniform 14C levels while ...
  • Bayesian network classifiers in Weka

    Bouckaert, Remco R. (Department of Computer Science, 2004-09-01)
    Various Bayesian network classifier learning algorithms are implemented in Weka [10].This note provides some user documentation and implementation details. Summary of main capabilities: _Structure learning of Bayesian ...
  • Bayesian sequence learning for predicting protein cleavage points

    Mayo, Michael (Springer, 2005)
    A challenging problem in data mining is the application of efficient techniques to automatically annotate the vast databases of biological sequence data. This paper describes one such application in this area, to the ...
  • Bayesian tools for tephrochronology

    Buck, Caitlin E.; Higham, Thomas F.G.; Lowe, David J. (Arnold Publishers, 2003)
    It is suggested that Bayesian statistical methods for radiocarbon data interpretation, already widely used in archaeology, also have potential to improve the dating of tephra layers and hence enhance their use for ...
  • Beach response to a sequence of extreme storms

    Coco, Giovanni; Senechal, Nadia; Rejas, A.; Bryan, Karin R.; Capo, S.; Parisot, J.P.; Brown, Jenna A.; MacMahan, Jamie H.M. (Elsevier, 2013)
    A sequence of daily beach surveys acquired over one month covering an area larger than 100,000 m2, was analyzed to study morphological changes resulting from a cluster of storms. The beach response was highly variable in ...
  • Bearings: [Review of "Being here: Selected poems" by Vincent O'Sullivan]

  • Beauty and Truth: Re-defining Legal Artistry's Normative Aspirations

    McDonald, Deidre Ann (The University of Waikato, 2007)
    Abstract Judges are responsible for creating case law, and each case is important, because each develops (in theory) the body of law as a whole. Each judgment should be able to meet the definition of 'art' that I will ...
  • Becoming a Teacher: An Investigation of the Transition from Student Teacher to Teacher

    Grudnoff, Alexandra Barbara (The University of Waikato, 2007)
    This thesis seeks to gain greater knowledge of the process of transition and development that beginning primary teachers undergo over their first year of teaching. The research focus is on investigating and understanding ...
  • Becoming curious about cats: A collaborative writing project

    Dix, Stephanie Margaret; Amoore, Liz (Australian Literacy Educators' Association, 2010)
    Students’ interests and achievement in writing are often debated and located in theoretical and pedagogical arguments. These issues can polarise understandings of effective teaching practice. This article describes one ...
  • Becoming PBRF-able: Research assessment and education in New Zealand

    Middleton, Sue (Sense Publishers, 2009)
    It seems ironic that, designed as they are to quantify, evaluate and reward the research quantum of academic institutions, departments and individuals, research assessment exercises have themselves become objects of their ...
  • Becoming smaller: Autobiographical spaces of weight loss

    Longhurst, Robyn (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011)
    This research focuses on the spaces and politics of weight loss. It is informed by “fat studies”, critical geographical scholarship on fat, and two contrasting feminist readings of Michel Foucault's notion of “care of the ...
  • Before the battery started: mining at Waiorongomai from late 1881 to late 1883

    Hart, Philip (Historical Research Unit, University of Waikato, 2016)
    Throughout 1882 and 1883 hopes remained high for developing a successful goldfield, with some encouraging ore being found and experts praising the reefs. Investors were interested in the field, which officials expected to ...
  • Beginning primary teachers' induction and mentoring practices in Papua New Guinea

    Deruage, Joseph Kua (The University of Waikato, 2007)
