The accurate computation of key properties of Markov and semiMarkov Processes
(The University of Melbourne, 2014)Based upon the Grassman, Taksar and Heyman algorithm [1] and the equivalent Sheskin State Reduction algorithm [2] for finding the stationary distribution of a finite irreducible Markov chain, Kohlas [3] developed a procedure ... 
The Baire property in hitandmiss topologies
(AUT University, 2008)In the past ten years, there has been a great progress in determining when hyperspaces have the Baire property, and several problems have been solved. I this talk, I shall explore the Baire property of hyperspace equipped ... 
The chain of quality through integrated product development
(Technical University of Zielona Góra, 2000)Today, it is almost impossible to find a manufacturer who has not been significantly influenced by the quality culture, but it is evident that some are doing more to improve their product quality than others are. The ... 
The derivation of Markov Chain Properties using Generalized Matrix Inverses
(Manipal Univ Press/arXiv, 2011)In many stochastic models a Markov chain is present either directly or indirectly through some form of embedding. The analysis of many problems of interest associated with these models, eg. stationary distributions, moments ... 
The development of a Vuilleumier Cryocooler for New Zealand’s high temperature superconductor industry
(CryoCooler.org, 2008)A Vuilleumier cryocooler with a projected cooling capacity of 100 W at 77 K has been developed at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. While most cryocoolers use mechanical compressors with associated vibration, ... 
The distribution of Mixing Times in Markov Chains
(arXiv, 2011)The distribution of the “mixing time” or the “time to stationarity” in a discrete time irreducible Markov chain, starting in state i, can be defined as the number of trials to reach a state sampled from the stationary ... 
The distribution of Mixing Times in Markov Chains
(World Scientific Publishing Co & Operational Research Society of Singapore, 2012)The distribution of the “mixing time” or the “time to stationarity” in a discrete time irreducible Markov chain, starting in state i, can be defined as the number of trials to reach a state sampled from the stationary ... 
The Eckert number phenomenon  an experimental investigation of the heat transfer from a rotating cylinder in a crossflow
(Macmillan (India), 2006)The Eckert number phenomenon describes a reversal in heat transfer from a moving wall at an Eckert number Ec ≈ 1. In this report the Eckert number phenomenon is confirmed experimentally for the first time. For that purpose ... 
The Eckert number phenomenon: experimental investigations on the heat transfer from a moving wall in the case of a rotating cylinder
(SpringerVerlag, 2004)The Eckert number phenomenon was investigated theoretically by Geropp in 1969 and describes a reversal in heat transfer from a moving wall at an Eckert number Ec ≈ 1. In this report the Eckert number phenomenon is confirmed ... 
The effect of mechanical surface treatment on the UVVisible Reflectance of low cost solar thermal absorber materials
(The Australian Solar Energy Society (AuSES), 2010)The mechanical treatment of solar absorbers by rolling, surface roughening and polishing, and large scale texturing can significantly affect the absorption of solar radiation in the ultraviolet and visible range. In this ... 
The effect of people movement on WiFi link throughput in indoor propagation environments
(IEEE, 2013)While various key performance limiting factors of IEEE 802.11based WiFi networks such as wireless protocols, radio propagation environment and signal interference have been studied by many network researchers, the effect ... 
The effects of business environments on corporate strategies and performance of construction organisations
(Association of Researchers in Construction Management (ARCOM), 2013)The study examines the moderating effects of business environment in the relationship between strategies used by construction organisations and examines how these can be used in attaining competitive advantage, and improved ... 
The effects of different representations on static structure analysis of computer malware signatures
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013)The continuous growth of malware presents a problem for internet computing due to increasingly sophisticated techniques for disguising malicious code through mutation and the time required to identify signatures for use ... 
The efficient modelling of steam utility systems
(IPENZ, 2013)Industrial utility systems, traditionally the "poor forgotten cousin" of the processing industry, are now receiving the attention they deserve. While the thermodynamics and process models of utility systems are well ... 
The evolution of the evolving neurofuzzy systems: from expert systems to spiking, neurogenetic, and quantum inspired
(Springer, 2013)This chapter follows the development of a class of intelligent information systems called evolving neurofuzzy systems (ENFS). ENFS combine the adaptive/ evolving learning ability of neural networks and the approximate ... 
The fate of computing in research performance evaluation schemes – ERA vs PBRF
(CITRENZ, 2011)The prevailing ‘audit culture’ in national governments has seen a global proliferation of research performance evaluation schemes. Most recently the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) results have been published. ... 
The framework for effective postdisaster reconstruction in New Zealand
(Natural Hazards Management, 2006)New Zealand's vulnerability to natural disasters demands its proactive engagement in disaster management programmes so as to reduce ricks and eventually increase its resilience to future events. Previous disaster studies ... 
The ideal generated by sigmanowhere dense sets
(Applied General Topology, Universidad Politecnica de Valencia, 2006)In this paper, we consider the ideal I¾ generated by all ¾nowhere dense sets in a topological space. Properties of this ideal and its relations with the Volterra property are explored. We show that I¾ is compatible with ... 
The ideal generated by sigmanowhere dense sets
(Universidad Politecnica de Valencia, 2006)In this paper, we consider the ideal I_σ generated by all σnowhere dense sets in a topological space. Properties of this ideal and its relations with the Volterra property are explored. We show that I_σ is compatible with ... 
The impact of the AuScope VLBI observations and the regional AUSTRAL sessions on the TRF
(American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2014)The AuScope VLBI array was built with the purpose to improve the terrestrial (TRF) and celestial reference frames in the southern hemisphere. Since 2010 the three 12m antennas in Hobart (Tasmania), Katherine (Northern ...
