  • Baring some essentials: boys' achievement, ERO and leadership.

    Wright, Noeline (Faculty of Education, University of Waikato, 2000)
    This article identifies some popular concerns about boys' achievement, and concerns raised by researchers. The Education Review Office report on the achievement of boys is critiqued in relation to the role masculinities ...
  • Baristas: The artisan precariat

    Piercy, Gemma Louise (The University of Waikato, 2018)
    My research on the work identit(ies) of baristas demonstrates that different workplaces, in conjunction with individual biographies, produce different kinds of work identities. Connected to these differences are the actual ...
  • Barrett Bush management plan

    Bryan, Catherine Louise (Environmental Research Institute, The University of Waikato, 2012)
    The current vegetation pattern of Barrett Bush is the result of complex landscape changes of both recent and historic times. The most recent natural landscape changes occurred as the Waikato River meandered across the ...
  • Barriers and incentives to Māori participation in the profession of psychology: A report for the New Zealand Psychologists' Board

    Levy, Michelle Patricia (2002-09-01)
    It is well known that Māori are over-represented within the client group of psychologists. Despite ongoing attempts to recruit and retain more Māori within the discipline of psychology, the numbers of Māori psychologists ...
  • Barriers and supports to the access of justice as experienced by Pasifika women impacted by domestic violence

    Gosche, Jessica (The University of Waikato, 2017)
    Domestic violence is a pervasive social issue in New Zealand with the majority of victims being women and children. 45-60% of Pasifika women are likely to experience violence in their lifetime. Despite the prevalence of ...
  • Barriers to and supports for success for Maori students in the Psychology Department at the University of Waikato

    Hunt, Hanna; Morgan, Niki; Teddy, Lani (2001-01-01)
    The overall objective for this evaluation was to investigate the barriers to participating in tertiary education for Maori, and supports for academic success for Maori students in the Psychology Department. With this ...
  • Barry Barclay: the Reflection of Maori and Pakeha Identities

    Hilal, Emad Jabbar (University of Waikato, 2017)
    This Media and Screen Studies thesis tries to investigate the identifications of Barry Barclay (1944-2008) - a New Zealand filmmaker, thinker and poet, of Māori and Pākeha ethnic background - who identified as Māori in the ...
  • Base-Free Dynamic Kinetic Resolution of Secondary Alcohols Using “Piano-Stool” Complexes of N-Heterocyclic Carbenes

    Marr, Andrew C.; Pollock, Ciara L.; Saunders, Graham C. (American Chemical Society, 2007)
    “Piano-stool” complexes of rhodium and iridium activated by fluorinated and non-fluorinated N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands were shown to be catalysts for racemization in the one-pot chemoenzymic dynamic kinetic ...
  • Basin analysis of the late Eocene - Oligocene Te Kuiti Group, western North Island, New Zealand

    Tripathi, Anand Ratnakar Prasad (The University of Waikato, 2008)
    The Late Eocene - Oligocene Te Kuiti Group crops out extensively in central-western North Island between Port Waikato and Awakino, providing a useful window for examination of a broadly transgressive shelfal to upper bathyal ...
  • 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)
