    • 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 2017: Year 2 of a Pacific climate change storytelling project

      Robie, D (Auckland University of Technology, School of Communication Studies, Pacific Media Centre, 2018)

    • 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 ...
