• Automatic variance control and variance estimation loops

      Moir, TJ (Springer Verlag (Germany) (for Birkhäuser Boston), 2001)
      A closed-loop servo approach is applied to the problem of controlling and estimating variance in nonstationary signals. The new circuit closely resembles, but is not the same as, automatic gain control, which is common in ...
    • Automotive 3-microphone noise canceller in a frequently moving noise source environment

      Moir, TJ; Qi, T (World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology (WASET), 2007)
      A combined three-microphone voice activity detector (VAD) and noise-canceling system is studied to enhance speech recognition in an automobile environment. A previous experiment clearly shows the ability of the composite ...

    • Avoiding the opportunist: the role of Simmelian Ties in fostering the trust in Sensor-Cloud Networks

      Al-Anbuky, A; Xiang, M; Liu, W (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2015)
      The wireless sensor-cloud networks (WSCNs) are becoming popular nowadays. The new concept of trust has emerged in recent studies as an alternative mechanism to address the security concern in WSCN. Most of the studies on ...

    • Baire spaces and the Wijsman topology

      Cao, J; Tomita, A (AUT University, 2007)
      In 1960s, when he studied Banach space geometry, R. Wijsman considered the weak topology on the collection of nonempty closed subsets of a metric space generated by the distance functionals viewed as functions of set ...
    • Baire spaces and Vietoris hyperspaces

      Cao, J; Garcia Ferreira, S; Gutev, V (The American Mathematical Society, 2007)
      We prove that if the Vietoris hyperspace CL(X) of all nonempty closed subsets of a space X is Baire, then all finite powers of X must be Baire spaces. In particular, there exists a metrizable Baire space whose Vietoris ...
    • Baire spaces, Tychonoff powers and the Vietoris topology

      Cao, J; Tomita, AH (American Mathematical Society, 2007)
      In this paper, we show that if the Tychonoff power Xω of a quasiregular space X is Baire, then its Vietoris hyperspace 2X is also Baire. We also provide two examples to show (i) the converse of this result does not hold in ...
    • Barricades and boulevards: material transformations of Paris, 1795-1871

      Douglas, C (Enigma, 2008)
      Large-scale urban violence is a tumultuous, messy, and distressing affair. The materials and patterns of everyday life are disrupted. Amongst death and disarray, however, it would be easy to overlook some of the important ...
    • Bayesian fitting procedures for hydrological point processes.

      Parry, K (2014)
      Model fitting and selection typically requires the use of likelihoods. Applying standard methods to hydrological point processes, however, is problematic as their likelihoods are often analytically intractable and the data ...
    • Bayesian threshold selection for extremal models using measures of surprise

      Lee, J; Fan, Y; Sisson, S (Cornell University Library, 2013)
      Statistical extreme value theory is concerned with the use of asymptotically motivated models to describe the extreme values of a process. A number of commonly used models are valid for observed data that exceed some high ...
    • Bearing Witness 2016: A Fiji Climate Change Journalism Case Study

      Robie, D (Pacific Media Centre, School of Communication Studies, Auckland University of Technology, 2017)
      In February 2016, the Fiji Islands were devastated by Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston, the strongest recorded tropical storm in the Southern Hemisphere. The category 5 storm with wind gusts reaching 300 kilometres an hour, ...
    • Bearing Witness 2017: Year 2 of a Pacific climate change storytelling project

      Robie, D (Auckland University of Technology, School of Communication Studies, Pacific Media Centre, 2018)
      In 2016, the Pacific Media Centre responded to the devastation and tragedy wrought in Fiji by Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston by initiating the Bearing Witness journalism project and dispatching two postgraduate students ...

    • Becoming Iconic

      King, B (Annenberg School, University of Southern California, 2018)
      Contemporary popular journalism and cultural commentary are marked by the widespread proliferation of the term “iconic” in a way that departs from its traditional, sacred meaning, albeit carrying the aura of the former ...
    • Before anticipation

      Jackson, ML (RMIT University, 2012)
      The possibility of any recognition of 'access' as such would be constituted in the future anterior, what I would retrospectively encounter, or encounter again, as that which marks or constitutes a threshold or opening. The ...
    • Behind the Fiji censorship: a comparative media regulatory case study as a prelude to the Easter putsch

      Robie, D (Auckland University of Technology, 2009)
      On 10 April 2009, a military backed regime wrested total control of the Fiji Islands in what was arguably a fifth coup and imposed martial law. The then President, Ratu Josefa Iloilo, abrogated the 1997 Constitution and ...
