  • (R)evolutionary aesthetics: Denis Dutton’s The art instinct: beauty, pleasure and human evolution

    Kingsbury, Justine (Springer, 2009)
    Denis Dutton’s ‘‘The Art Instinct’’ succeeds admirably in showing that it is possible to think about art from a biological point of view, and this is a significant achievement, given that resistance to the idea that cultural ...
  • R-separation of variables for the time-dependent Hamilton–Jacobi and Schrödinger equations

    Kalnins, Ernie G.; Miller, W., Jr. (1987-05)
    The theory of R-separation of variables is developed for the time-dependent Hamilton–Jacobi and Schrödinger equations on a Riemannian manifold V n where time-dependent vector and scalar potentials are permitted. As an ...
  • Race, culture and ethnicity: Organisation of Maori social groups: A working paper

    Nikora, Linda Waimarie (1995-06-01)
    Three concepts have guided the conceptual orientation to studies of human groups within the social sciences. They are those concepts of race, culture, and ethnicity. These are discussed with specific reference to Maori ...
  • Race-ing and engendering the nation-state in Aotearoa/New Zealand

    Seuffert, Nan (American University - Washington College of Law, 2002-02-01)
    During the past several decades the dynamics of law and policy reform in Aotearoa/New Zealand have prefigured and encapsulated contemporary trends in economic state restructuring, indigenous claims to refigure the nation, ...
  • Racing algorithms for conditional independence inference

    Bouckaert, Remco R.; Studený, Milan (Elsevier, 2007)
    In this article, we consider the computational aspects of deciding whether a conditional independence statement t is implied by a list of conditional independence statements L using the independence implication provided ...
  • Racing committees for large datasets.

    Frank, Eibe; Holmes, Geoffrey; Kirkby, Richard Brendon; Hall, Mark A. (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2002-06-01)
    This paper proposes a method for generating classifiers from large datasets by building a committee of simple base classifiers using a standard boosting algorithm. It allows the processing of large datasets even if the ...
  • Racing for conditional independence inference

    Bouckaert, Remco R.; Studený, Milan (Springer, 2005)
    In this article, we consider the computational aspects of deciding whether a conditional independence statement t is implied by a list of conditional independence statements L using the implication related to the method ...
  • Radial evolution of cross helicity at low and high latitudes in the solar wind

    Breech, Ben; Matthaeus, William H.; Minnie, J.; Oughton, Sean; Parhi, S.; Bieber, J.W.; Bavassano, B. (2005)
    We employ a turbulence transport theory to the radial evolution of the solar wind at both low and high latitudes. The theory includes cross helicity, magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence, and driving by shear and pickup ...
  • Radial evolution of cross helicity in high-latitude solar wind

    Breech, Ben; Matthaeus, William H.; Minnie, J.; Oughton, Sean; Oarhi, S.; Bieber, J.W.; Bavassano, B. (American Geophysical Union, 2005)
    We employ a turbulence transport theory to explain the high-latitude radial evolution of cross helicity, or Alfvénicity, observed by the Ulysses spacecraft. Evolution is slower than at low latitudes due to weakened shear driving.
  • Radical research as research at the roots: Practitioner self-image, public relations and ethics

    Toledano, Margalit (Abramis Academic Publishing, 2008)
    Semantically, radical derives from ‘radix’, the Latin for root. This paper argues that little public relations research goes back to the roots of actual practice and addresses this neglect through a project focusing on ...
  • Radical research honesty in a post-truth society

    Twidale, Michael B.; Nichols, David M. (iSchools, 2019)
    It seems that in much current research, big truths have to be protected by a bodyguard of little white lies, and a phalanx of unreported inconvenient truths. What would happen if we told the truth about how we really do ...
  • Radicals of 0-regular algebras

    McConnell, N. R.; Stokes, Tim E. (Akademiai Kiado Rt, 2006)
    We consider a generalisation of the Kurosh--Amitsur radical theory for rings (and more generally multi-operator groups) which applies to 0-regular varieties in which all operations preserve 0. We obtain results for ...
  • Radiocarbon age of the Kaharoa Tephra, a key marker for late-Holocene stratigraphy and archaeology in New Zealand

    Lowe, David J.; McFadgen, Bruce G.; Higham, Thomas F.G.; Hogg, Alan G.; Froggatt, Paul C.; Nairn, Ian A. (1998)
    The Kaharoa eruption, the most recent rhyolitic volcanic event in New Zealand, resulted in the deposition of the compositionally distinctive Kaharoa Tephra over at least 30 000 km2 of northern and eastern North Island. The ...
  • Radiocarbon and linguistic dates for occupation of the South Wellesley Islands, Northern Australia

    Ulm, Sean; Evans, Nicholas; Rosendahl, Daniel; Memmott, Paul; Petchey, Fiona (University of Sydney, Oceania Publications, 2010)
    Radiocarbon dates from three Kaiadilt Aboriginal sites on the South Wellesley Islands, southern Gulf of Carpentaria, demonstrate occupation dating to c.1600 years ago. These results are at odds with published linguistic ...
  • Radiocarbon dates on desiccated moa (Dinornithiformes) flesh from Inland Otago, New Zealand

    Anderson, Atholl; Rowe, Lucy; Petchey, Fiona; White, Moira (New Zealand Archaeology Association, 2010)
    Remains of soft tissues from extinct moa (Dinornithiformes), mainly desiccated sinew, muscle, skin, and feathers have been recovered rather seldom but their distribution is distinctive. Of 22 records of such finds accumulated ...
  • Radiocarbon dating of burials from the Teouma Lapita cemetery, Efate, Vanuatu

    Petchey, Fiona; Spriggs, Matthew; Bedford, Stuart; Valentin, Frédérique; Buckley, Hallie (Elsevier, 2014)
    The discovery of a cemetery at Teouma on the island of Efate in Vanuatu dated to c. 3000 years ago increased the number of early Pacific human remains available for study by nearly an order of magnitude and provided for ...
  • Radiocarbon determinations from the Mulifanua Lapita site, Upolu, western Samoa

    Petchey, Fiona (2001)
    The Mulifanua ferry berth has the distinction of being the only site in Samoa with dentate-stamped Lapita wares, and is the most easterly Lapita site in the Pacific. Two new radiocarbon determinations of material associated ...
  • Radiocarbon-dated faunal remains correlate very large rock avalanche deposit with prehistoric Alpine Fault rupture

    Wood, Jamie R.; Wilmshurst, Janet M.; Rawlence, Nicolas J. (Taylor and Francis, 2011)
    We present an example of where radiocarbon-dated faunal remains have allowed the likely age of a landslide deposit to be estimated. Radiocarbon dates were obtained for 3 skeletons and 13 coprolites (from 3 moa species), ...
  • Radiometric field work and remote sensing using satellite data

    Chalmers, Lex (Wiley, 1985-10)
    There has been a marked growth in the number of spacecraft and airborne sensors since 1972, the date of the launching of the first satellite developed to monitor Earth's resources (LANDSAT). As a consequence, geographers ...
  • Rahui And Marine Construction: Potential For Enhancement of Taonga species

    Fox, Danielle (The University of Waikato, 2010)
    The aims of my study were to investigate whether marine reserves enhance intertidal species used by Māori in a traditional or contemporary sense, and whether artificial structures in the intertidal region (such as wharf ...
