  • 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)

  • 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-hazard analysis and mapping in support of coastal city growth planning and resilience building

    Raynor, Steve C.; Boston, Megan (2020)
    High growth in Tauranga is causing increased pressure to develop hazard-prone land. A key tool in evaluating safer potential growth areas is the quantification and spatial mapping of individual natural hazards. In a ...
  • Multi-hazard analysis and mapping of coastal Tauranga in support of resilience planning

    Raynor, Steve C.; Boston, Megan (2021)
    High growth is increasingly forcing development of hazard prone land in the coastal city of Tauranga. A multi-hazard mapping tool developed to guide strategic growth planning in this natural hazard rich environment gives ...
  • 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 ...
