    • Off the Grid: Iifrastructure and transformational space

      Douglas, C (RMIT University, School of Art, 2011)
      Concepts of space underlie and structure design practices involved in the production of human environments, such as architecture, landscape design, urban planning, industrial design and civil engineering, for example. The ...
    • On aspects of glasses-free 3D cinema 70 years ago

      Blundell, BG (Veritas et Visus, 2013)
      In the following pages attention focuses on four exemplar strands of pioneering research carried out in the first half of the twentieth century in designing and implementing glasses-free (autostereoscopic) 3D cinema. For ...
    • On complexity of Ehrenfeucht-Fraïssé games

      Khoussainov, B; Liu, J (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2007)
      In this paper we initiate the study of Ehrenfeucht-Fraïssé games for some standard finite structures. Examples of such standard structures are equivalence relations, trees, unary relation structures, Boolean algebras, and ...
    • On modernism’s secret anxieties by Gerrit Confurius

      Engels-Schwarzpaul, A.-Chr. (Enigma : he aupiki, Auckland. Print production by McCollams, Auckland, 2011)
      The moderns looked upon strong and enveloping, closed forms with suspicion. These forms have been ideologically suspect ever since – even though we usually respond positively to them and, on holidays, even seek them out ...
    • On secure workflow decentralisation on the internet

      Kaskenpalo, P (Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica, 2010)
      Decentralised workflow management systems are a new research area, where most work to-date has focused on the system's overall architecture. As little attention has been given to the security aspects in such systems, we ...
