  • The Professionalization of Nursing: New Zealand as a Case Study

    Liu, Yue (University of Waikato, 2011)
    Nursing has often been regarded by sociologists, the medical profession and even nurses themselves, as an occupational grouping which is semi - rather than fully - professionalised. This study is concerned with recognising ...
  • Professionals: You be the judge

    Hume, Anne Christine (NZEI Te Riu Roa, 2012)
    An Australian science resource for primary teachers has been given the big tick by Dr Anne Hume, a senior lecturer at the University of Waikato. She strongly recommendeds that New Zealand teachers look at Primary Connections ...
  • Professor Predrag Bajčetić: The Life And The Method

    Ladevac, Mihailo (University of Waikato, 2015)
    The facts show that more than 300 actors have been educated by Professor Predrag Bajčetić, through his own acting training method, not just in Serbia but in other ex-Yugoslav republics and Norway as well. Professor Bajčetić ...
  • Profile descriptions of Quaternary basaltic volcanogenic soils of the Mount Gambier area, southeast South Australia

    Lowe, David J. (CSIRO Division of Soils, 1992)
    The volcanoes of southeast South Australia form the western extension of the Newer Volcanics province of Victoria, and comprise two distinct groups: a northern Pleistocene group of 15 eruption centres in the Mount Burr ...
  • Profiling micro-enterprises: The case of home-based businesses in New Zealand

    Clark, Delwyn N.; Douglas, Heather (Inderscience Enterprises Ltd, 2012)
    Micro-enterprises represent significant proportions of small firms in most economies yet they are not routinely profiled or studied. This paper examines business processes and activities of micro home-based businesses (HBB) ...
  • Profitability of momentum returns under alternative approaches

    Gupta, Kartick; Locke, Stuart; Scrimgeour, Frank (Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2013)
    There have been some news releases claiming that Professor Henle in Germany has found the chemical identity of UMF, and that in future chemical analysis will be used instead of assays of antibacterial activity to indicate ...
  • Progger: an efficient, tamper-evident kernel-space logger for cloud data provenance tracking

    Ko, Ryan K.L.; Will, Mark A. (IEEE, 2014)
    Cloud data provenance, or "what has happened to my data in the cloud", is a critical data security component which addresses pressing data accountability and data governance issues in cloud computing systems. In this paper, ...
  • Proglacial sedimentation of late Wisconsin age in Miers Valley, Antarctica

    Clayton-Greene, Jan Maree (University of Waikato, 1986)
    Miers Valley is an ice free valley in the Koettlitz Region of Victoria Land, Antarctica. The eastern basin of this valley has extensive coverage of gypsum and laminated calcite overlying fine silts and sands, while Lake ...
  • Program Development and Specification Refinement in the Schema Calculus

    Henson, Martin C.; Reeves, Steve (Springer, Berlin, 2000)
    We introduce a framework for program development and specification refinement in the schema calculus of Z. We provide illustrative examples outlining the major design decisions based on an interpretation of operation schemas ...
  • Programme design practice in a polytechnic in Aotearoa/New Zealand: A case for complexity

    Govers, Cornelia Adriana Maria (University of Waikato, 2011)
    A programme is an instrument for education. Through educational programmes we help shape our society. Programme design includes decisions on what society finds valuable for people to learn, and how this should be structured ...
  • Programming a fast explicit conflict checker

    Malik, Robi (IEEE, 2016)
    This paper describes the implementation of explicit model checking algorithms to verify the nonblocking or nonconflicting property of discrete event systems. Explicit algorithms enumerate and store all reachable states of ...
  • Programming for concurrency control in database systems

    Tan, Puay Hiang (University of Waikato, 1989)
    Concurrency control problems in centralized Database Management Systems have been actively studied in past two decades. Various types of concurrency control mechanisms have been proposed and implemented in practice. Among ...
  • Progressing the science of effluent treatment using Lasersizer diffraction analysis - a pilot study

    Burgess, Alison C.; Palmer, Gabi T.; Lowe, David J.; Cooke, Penelope J. (Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand, 2003-12-02)
    Disinfection of waste water with ultraviolet (UV) light is a common procedure in many sewage treatment plants because it is used to inactivate coliform bacteria in the effluent. The number of coliform bacteria in a given ...
  • Progressive events in supervisory control and compositional verification

    Ware, Simon; Malik, Robi (2014-08)
    This paper investigates some limitations of the nonblocking property when used for supervisor synthesis in discrete event systems. It is shown that there are cases where synthesis with the nonblocking property gives undesired ...
  • Project 0907: INTREPID – Enhancing tephrochronology as a global research tool through improved fingerprinting and correlation techniques and uncertainty modelling

    Lowe, David J. (International Union for Quaternary Research, 2010)
    In May, 2010, the inter-congress meeting of the INQUA International focus group on tephrochronology and volcanism (INTAV) was held in Kirishima City, southern Kyushu, Japan. INTAV was formed in 2007 at the International ...
  • A projection-based solution to the SP(2N) state labeling problem

    Gould, M.D.; Kalnins, Ernie G. (1985-07)
    A projection-based solution to the symplectic group state labeling problem is presented. The approach yields a nonorthogonal Gel'fand–Tsetlin basis for the irreducible representations of Sp(2n). A method for evaluating the ...
  • Prolactin delays hair regrowth in mice

    Craven, A.J.; Nixon, A.J.; Ashby, M.G.; Ormandy, C.J.; Blazek, K.; Wilkins, Richard J.; Pearson, A.J. (2006)
    Mammalian hair growth is cyclic, with hair-producing follicles alternating between active (anagen) and quiescent (telogen) phases. The timing of hair cycles is advanced in prolactin receptor (PRLR) knockout mice, suggesting ...
  • Prologue: Governing the corporation: Structure, process and behaviour

    Smallman, Clive; McDonald, Gael; Mueller, Jens (Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management, 2010)
    To those of us affected by the global recession that started in late 2007 (and it is hard to think of anyone in the world who is not touched by this massive downturn), it is sobering to realise that much of what has been ...
