    Paterson, Awatea (University of Waikato, 2013)
    Mai rā anō a Ngāi Tāua, te iwi Māori, e tuku iho ai i ngā mātauranga mā te ārero tupuna mai i tētehi whakatupuranga, ki tētehi whakatupuranga. Ko ngā mātauranga ka tukua iho ko ngā pūrākau, ko ngā karakia, ko ngā whakataukī, ...
  • MRI Safe Electrodes for Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS)

    Hartung, Dirk; Scott, Jonathan B.; McCabe, Steven Owen; Single, Peter (2017)
    Adding decoy filars and non-therapeutic decoy electrodes to therapeutic filars can divert and dissipate a significant fraction of captured RF energy in a distributed way along the lead. Simulated worst case local SAR values ...
  • Muddy Doctors and Mustard Poultices: Medical knowledge and practices in colonial New Zealand

    Bishop, Joanna Lisa (University of Waikato, 2010)
    This thesis examines health care in colonial New Zealand and sets about identifying and recognising the care which was given by women in their homes and communities. Based around four dominant etiological theories of the ...
  • Muhammad, Prophet of God [Book review]

    Pratt, Douglas (2009)
    This article reviews the book: “Muhammad, Prophet of God”, by D.C. Peterson.
  • Multi-argument classification for semantic role labeling

    Lin, Chi-San Althon; Smith, Tony C. (City University of Hong Kong, 2008)
    This paper describes a Multi-Argument Classification (MAC) approach to Semantic Role Labeling. The goal is to exploit dependencies between semantic roles by simultaneously classifying all arguments as a pattern. Argument ...
  • Multi-decadal coastal change in New Zealand: Evidence, mechanisms and implications

    Bryan, Karin R.; Kench, Paul S.; Hart, Deirdre E. (Blackwell Publishers, 2008)
    Coastal research and monitoring on New Zealand beaches have typically examined seasonal and event-driven (storms) changes in the coast. However, historical records are now of sufficient length to indicate that change occurs ...
  • Multi-decadal variations in Southern Hemisphere atmospheric ¹⁴C: Evidence against a Southern Ocean sink at the end of the Little Ice Age CO₂ anomaly.

    Turney, Chris S.M.; Palmer, Jonathan G.; Hogg, Alan G.; Fogwill, Christopher J.; Jones, Richard; Bronk Ramsey, Christopher; Fenwick, Pavla; Grierson, Pauline; Wilmshurst, Janet; O'Donnell, Alison; Thomas, Zoë; Lipson, Mathew (American Geophysical Union, 2016)
    Northern Hemisphere-wide cooling during the Little Ice Age (LIA; CE 1650-1775) is associated with a ~5 ppmv decrease in atmospheric carbon dioxide. Changes in terrestrial and ocean carbon reservoirs have been postulated ...
  • Multi-inlet migration modeling for navigation channel management in Tabusintac Bay, Eastern Canada

    Leys, Vincent; Lehmann, Moritz K. (2016)
    In New Brunswick, Atlantic Canada, Tabusintac Bay’s multiple tidal inlets meander through narrow barrier islands and are prone to large storm-induced shifts, making navigation hazardous. A multi-evidence assessment comprised ...
  • Multi-label classification using boolean matrix decomposition

    Wicker, Jörg; Pfahringer, Bernhard; Kramer, Stefan (ACM, 2012)
    This paper introduces a new multi-label classifier based on Boolean matrix decomposition. Boolean matrix decomposition is used to extract, from the full label matrix, latent labels representing useful Boolean combinations ...
  • Multi-label classification using ensembles of pruned sets

    Read, Jesse; Pfahringer, Bernhard; Holmes, Geoffrey (IEEE, 2008)
    This paper presents a Pruned Sets method (PS) for multi-label classification. It is centred on the concept of treating sets of labels as single labels. This allows the classification process to inherently take into account ...
  • Multi-latin squares

    Cavenagh, Nicholas J.; Hämäläinen, Carlo; Lefevre, James G.; Stones, Douglas S. (Elsevier, 2010)
    A multi-latin square of order n and index k is an n×n array of multisets, each of cardinality k, such that each symbol from a fixed set of size n occurs k times in each row and k times in each column. A multi-latin square ...
  • A multi-player educational game for story writing

    Mayo, Michael (Creativity and Cognition Studios Press, 2004)
    In this short paper, a multi-player interactive game called STORYWORLD BUILDER is described. The game enables children to collaboratively build a virtual “story world” and then role-play characters in that world. The ...
  • Multi-system geochronological and isotopic constraints on age and evolution of the Gaoligongshan metamorphic belt and shear zone system in western Yunnan, China

    Eroğlu, Sümeyya; Siebel, Wolfgang; Danišík, Martin; Pfänder, Jörg A.; Chen, Fukun (Elsevier, 2013)
    The Gaoligongshan metamorphic belt, located east of the Eastern Himalayan Syntaxis (EHS) in the Yunnan province, southwestern China, is a compelling region in which to determine temporal constrains on crustal dynamic ...
  • Multiclass alternating decision trees

    Holmes, Geoffrey; Pfahringer, Bernhard; Kirkby, Richard Brendon; Frank, Eibe; Hall, Mark A. (Springer, Berlin, 2002)
    The alternating decision tree (ADTree) is a successful classification technique that combines decision trees with the predictive accuracy of boosting into a set of interpretable classification rules. The original formulation ...
  • Multiculturalism and women’s employment: A sociological perspective

    Foroutan, Yaghoob (Auckland University of Technology, 2011)
    This paper analyses the patterns and determinants of female labour force participation from a sociological perspective. Using a relatively recent database, the present analysis updates existing knowledge and evaluates prior ...
  • Multimodal ways of eliciting students' voice.

    Cowie, Bronwen; Otrel-Cass, Kathrin; Moreland, Judy (Faculty of Education, University of Waikato, 2010)
    For some time researchers have been exploring how students might best be supported to express their ideas, opinions and feelings and to demonstrate what they know and can do. In this paper, we discuss some of the implications ...
  • Multinomial naive Bayes for text categorization revisited

    Kibriya, Ashraf Masood; Frank, Eibe; Pfahringer, Bernhard; Holmes, Geoffrey (Springer, 2005)

  • Multiple frequency range imaging to remove measurement ambiguity

    Payne, Andrew D.; Jongenelen, Adrian P.P.; Dorrington, Adrian A.; Cree, Michael J.; Carnegie, Dale A. (2009)
