  • Maxwell's Equations on a 10-Dimensional Manifold with local Symmetry so(2,3)

    Crump, William Peter (University of Waikato, 2012)
    The Hawthorn model is built upon the idea that the Lie algebra so(2, 3) is a more natural description of the local structure of spacetime than the Poincar´e Lie algebra. This model uses a 10-dimensional spacetime referred ...
  • A Review of the Dynamics and Oscillations of the Atmosphere

    Ross, Joseph (University of Waikato, 2012)
    The atmosphere is a complex, dynamic system and the weather depends on its state. There are many different phenomena that affect the state of the atmosphere - some only involve the atmosphere, others involve the interaction ...
  • Steady and unsteady visco-resistive reconnection in the presence of the Hall effect

    McMahon, Liam (The University of Waikato, 2021)
    In this thesis we investigate the effects of viscosity and the Hall effect on magnetic reconnection. Magnetic reconnection is a process of releasing large amounts of magnetic energy as observed in solar flares. In the first ...
  • Transport of turbulence in the solar wind

    Bishop, Mark (The University of Waikato, 2022)
    Charged particles are ejected from the sun and transported radially outward to the edge of the solar system, this plasma is called the solar wind. In the solar wind, turbulent fluctuations and waves form, and their transport ...
