  • Modern Apprenticeships: A third way in industry training?

    Piercy, Gemma Louise (The Association of Industrial Relations Academics of Australia and New Zealand (AIRAANZ), 2003)
    Modern Apprenticeship was one of Labour’s flagship policies to be implemented early in the Coalition Government’s first term. This case study of Modern Apprenticeship investigated the extent to which ‘third way’ rhetoric ...
  • Modern Biotechnology in New Zealand: Further Analysis of Data from the Biotechnology Survey 1998/99

    Marsh, Dan (Ministry of Research Science and Technology, 2001-01)
    The New Zealand Government has indicated a strong interest in fostering innovation and aims to concentrate on selected areas where New Zealand may be able to develop a new comparative advantage. One such area is biotechnology, ...
  • Modern life at high temperatures

    Daniel, Roy M. (Springer, 1992)
    A variety of micro-organisms are now known which grow optimally above 65°C, and are defined as extreme thermophiles. As might be expected they are found in both natural and artificial hot environments. Until comparatively ...
  • Modernity in the Margins: A study of the introduction of typographic modernity in New Zealand, 1920-1940

    Faber, Mary (University of Waikato, 2011)
    Publications on New Zealand’s typographical history are few, particularly for the period of typographic Modernism. This study extends the knowledge of New Zealand’s typographic history through investigating typeface ...
  • Modes of reception: A consolidated analytical framework

    Michelle, Carolyn (Routledge, 2007-07-01)
    Drawing on a synthesis of existing models of reception and findings from audience research, this article outlines a conceptual framework for the (meta)analysis of existing and new reception data which delineates four primary ...
  • Modes of representation in contemporary Galician visual poetry

    Lopez-Fernandez, Laura (Modern Language Association of America [MLA], 2011)
    Visual poetry in Galicia had a plural and discontinuous existence in the twentieth century'! Its development in Galicia follows national (Spanish) and international artistic practices, while also engaging in the configuration ...
  • A modest addendum to the english sediment core meta-database

    Woodhouse, Eleanor L.; Ratcliffe, Joshua L.; Andersen, Roxane; Suggitt, Andrew; Maclean, Ilya; Payne, Richard J. (2017)
    Compilations of previous studies provide researchers with a source of valuable secondary data for re-analysis, an access route to identify relevant literature and an opportunity to systematically evaluate the research which ...
  • A modest proposal

    Smith, Ron C. (New Zealand Institute of International Affairs, 2007)
    In this article I shall make some general observations about New Zealand’s attitudes to things nuclear and then make some more specific points on why we should consider nuclear power for New Zealand: what I call ‘A Modest ...
  • Modification of kraft wood-pulp fibre with silica for surface functionalisation

    Love, Karen T.; Nicholson, Brian K.; Lloyd, John; Franich, Robert A.; Kibblewhite, R. Paul; Mansfield, Shawn D. (Elsevier, 2008)
    A new science strategy for natural fibre modification was devised in which glass surface properties would be imparted to wood-derived fibre. The enhancements known from addition of silane reagents to glass fibre–polymer ...
  • Modification of sintered titanium alloys by hot isostatic pressing

    Bolzoni, Leandro; Ruiz-Navas, Elisa María; Zhang, Deliang; Gordo, Elena (Trans Tech Publications, 2012)
    Powder metallurgy (PM) permits to obtain titanium alloys with properties and microstructures close to ingot metallurgy products. However, residual porosity is normally present in the products produced by the PM route of ...
  • A modified energy transfer diagram for heat exchanger network retrofit bridge analysis

    Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Lal, Nathan S.; Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Atkins, Martin John (AIDIC (Italian Association of Chemical Engineering), 2017)
    The aim of this paper is to modify the Energy Transfer Diagram (ETD) to be able to graphically determine retrofit options and the amount of heat transferred. The ETD is a graphical methodology to represent a process and/or ...
  • Modified Output in Response to Clarification Requests and Second Language

    Ogino, Masayoshi (The University of Waikato, 2008)
    Modified output, second language (L2) learners' reformulation of their own utterances, has been attracting researchers' interest as an important component of learner interactions, and as a manifestation of interlanguage ...
  • Modified serpentine motion of the snake robot

    Jin, Pinwei (University of Waikato, 2015)
    The frequent occurrence of earthquake in New Zealand drives the research on snake robot for search and rescue operation because of its elongated body shape and locomotion mimicry of the biological snake. Both features are ...
  • Modular control-loop detection

    Malik, Robi; Malik, Petra (IEEE, 2006-07)
    This paper presents an efficient algorithm to detect control-loops in large finite-state systems. The proposed algorithm exploits the modular structure present in many models of practical relevance, and often successfully ...
  • Modular nonblocking verification using conflict equivalence

    Malik, Robi; Flordal, Hugo (IEEE, 2006-07)
    This paper proposes a modular approach to verifying whether a large discrete event system is nonconflicting. The new approach avoids computing the synchronous product of a large set of finite-state machines. Instead, ...
  • Modular Supervisor Synthesis for Extended Finite-State Machines Subject to Controllability

    Malik, Robi; Teixeira, Marcelo (IEEE, 2016-01-01)
    This paper proposes an algorithm for the synthesis of modular supervisors using extended finite-state machines, i.e., state machines with variables and guards on the transitions. Synthesis is performed by iteratively ...
  • Modular synthesis of discrete controllers

    Malik, Petra; Malik, Robi; Streader, David; Reeves, Steve (IEEE Computer Society, 2007-07)
    This paper presents supervisory control theory in a process-algebraic setting, and proposes a way of synthesising modular supervisors that guarantee nonblocking. The framework used includes the possibility of hiding actions ...
