  • Topologies induced by metrics with disconnected range

    Broughan, Kevin A. (1982)
    In a metric space (X, d) a ball B(x, ε) is separated if d(B(x, ε), X\B(x, ε)] > 0. If the separated balls form a sub-base for the d-topology then Ind X = 0. The metric is gap-like at x if dx(X) is not dense in any neighbourhood ...

    This thesis investigates how drinking and drunkenness behaviours were characterized and viewed in Hamilton city and how they were influenced by a number of factors between the release of the 1945-46 Royal Commission on ...
  • Total quality management and drinking water quality: The Waikato experience

    El-Kafafi, Siham (The University of Waikato, 2004)
    Drinking water quality is a matter of concern in New Zealand. The quality of many New Zealand water supplies has been unsatisfactory as shown by the grading conducted since 1960 by the former Board of Health. In 1991, a ...
  • Total site heat and mass integration and optimisation using P-graph: A biorefinery case study
