  • 2-D histories: media texts and the creation of the past

    Havemann, Leo (1996)
    Why might it be desirable or possible for historians to analyse media texts? The objective of this paper is to outline some theoretical considerations which seem necessary to the planning and execution of such a research ...
  • 3D face recognition using multiview keypoint matching

    Mayo, Michael; Zhang, Edmond Yiwen (IEEE, 2009)
    A novel algorithm for 3D face recognition based point cloud rotations, multiple projections, and voted keypoint matching is proposed and evaluated. The basic idea is to rotate each 3D point cloud representing an individual’s ...
  • 3D-printed Acoustic Directional Couplers

    MacDonell, Marcus Scott Glengarry; Scott, Jonathan B. (2014)
    Acoustic Directional Couplers permit separation of forward and reverse sound pressure waves. This separation opens the way to traceable precision acoustic reflection measurements. In order to span the audio frequency range, ...
  • A Generic Alerting Service for Digital Libraries

    Buchanan, George; Hinze, Annika (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc. (ACM), 2005-06-07)
    Users of modern digital libraries (DLs) can keep themselves up-to-date by searching and browsing their favorite collections, or more conveniently by resorting to an alerting service. The alerting service notifies its clients ...
  • A log analysis study of 10 years of ebook consumption in academic library collections

    Littlewood, Haley; Hinze, Annika; Vanderschantz, Nicholas; Timpany, Claire; Cunningham, Sally Jo (Springer, 2014)
    Even though libraries have been offering eBooks for more than a decade, very little is known about eBook access and consumption in academic library collections. This paper addresses this gap with a log analysis study of ...
  • A supercapacitor based enhancement technique for stand-alone surge protection circuits

    Fernando, Jayathu; Kularatna, Nihal (IEEE, 2013)
    With the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors predicting below-25nm feature-size VLSIs, powered by DC power supplies of less than 1V, protection against transients has become mandatory for modern electronic ...
  • A workflow execution platform for collaborative artifact-centric business processes

    Yongchareon, Sira; Ngamakeur, Kan; Liu, Chengfei; Chaisiri, Sivadon; Yu, Jian (Springer Verlag, 2014)
    To execute an artifact-centric process model, current workflow execution approaches require it to be converted to some existing executable language (e.g., BPEL) in order to run on a workflow system. We argue that the ...
  • Access and equity: second change education bring the policy directives into life

    Piercy, Gemma Louise (School of Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work, Massey University, 2001)
    This case study illustrates how, in a time of exclusion, some initiatives still attempt to embrace the traditional concerns of inclusion. The University of Waikato in 2000 decided to push the access and equity policy ...
  • An accountability model for Pakeha practitioners

    Huygens, Ingrid Louise Maria (Maori and Psychology Research Unit, University of Waikato, 1999)
    This paper outlines a model of accountability for Pakeha practitioners developed over many years as a practising community psychologist involved in research and development projects in Aotearoa in the 1980s and 1990s, ...
  • Accounting and accountability in Fiji: A review and synthesis

    Sharma, Umesh Prasad (2014)
    This paper reviews accounting and accountability research in Fiji. The review is based on 41 papers which were published in accounting refereed journals, professional journals, edited book chapters and thesis and other ...
  • Accounting for the costs of recruiting and training

    Twiname, Linda J.; Samujh, Helen; Rae, S (2011-06-27)
    We investigate the investments made by accounting firms into recruiting and training new employees into entry-level positions. This includes developing a model to capture both the direct and indirect investments/ costs ...
  • Active Electromagnetic Damping for Lightweight Electric Vehicles.

    Duke, Mike; Fow, Alista John (IEEE, 2015-01-17)
    Due to the low weight of most current electric vehicles, the effectiveness of commercial passive dampers is reduced when compared to current production automobiles. Active dampers allow for a significant reduction in the ...
  • Active learning of soft rules for system modelling

    Frank, Eibe; Huber, Klaus-Perter (1996)
    Using rule learning algorithms to model systems has gained considerable interest in the past. The underlying idea of active learning is to learning algorithm influence the selection of training examples. The presented ...
  • Active templates: Manipulating pointers with pictures

    Lyons, Paul J.; Apperley, Mark; Bishop, A.G.; Moretti, G.S (1994)
    Active templates are a semi-automatic visual mechanism for generating algorithms for manipulating pointer-based data structures. The programmer creates a picture showing the affected part of a data structure before and ...
  • The adaptation of cognitive behavioural therapy for adult Maori clients with depression: A pilot study

    Bennett, Simon T.; Flett, Ross A.; Babbage, Duncan R. (Maori and Psychology Research Unit, University of Waikato, 2008)
    A semistructured cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) programme for depression was adapted for use with Maori adult clients with depression. Adaptations were developed in consultation with an advisory group consisting of ...
  • Adaptive feature thresholding for off-line signature verification

    Larkins, Robert L.; Mayo, Michael (2008)
    This paper introduces Adaptive Feature Thresholding (AFT) which is a novel method of person-dependent off-line signature verification. AFT enhances how a simple image feature of a signature is converted to a binary feature ...
  • An Adaptive Model-based Mutation Operator for the Wind Farm Layout Optimisation Problem

    Mayo, Michael; Daoud, Maisa (IEEE, 2015)
    A novel mutation operator for the wind farm layout optimisation problem is proposed and tested. When a wind farm layout is simulated, statistics such as an individual turbine’s wake free ratio can be computed. These ...
  • Adaptive techniques for specification matching in embedded systems: A comparative study

    Malik, Robi; Roop, Partha S. (Springer, Berlin, 2005)
    The specification matching problem in embedded systems is to determine whether an existing component may be adapted suitably to match the requirements of a new specification. Recently, a refinement called forced simulation ...
