Finding the envelope and efficient frontier of financial assets
(Science Publications, 2012)Problem statement: One of the problems considered in financial mathematics is finding portfolios of given financial assets that minimize risk for targeted returns. The set of such portfolios is called the envelope of the ... 
Finding the Way to Success in Implementing Lean Construction in an Unfavourable Context
(International Group for Lean Construction (IGLC), 2020)Developing countries are facing sever productivity problems in their construction sectors. Lean Construction has proven to be an effective solution for such situations. However, when it comes to lean implementation, the ... 
Finitetime Flocking Control of a Swarm of Cuckersmale Agents With Collision Avoidance
(IEEE, 2017)This paper considers the application of finitetime control to a CuckerSmale flocking model of autonomous agents with collision avoidance. A mathematical expression for the upper bound on the flocking time is derived. ... 
First Scientific VLBI Observations Using New Zealand 30 Metre Radio Telescope Wark30m
(IOP Publishing, 2015)We report the results of a successful 24 hour 6.7 GHz VLBI experiment using the 30 meter radio telescope WARK30M near Warkworth, New Zealand, recently converted from a radio telecommunications antenna, and two radio ... 
Flexible Inkprintable Wideband Logperiodic Dipole Array Antenna for Millimeterwave Applications
(2018 IEEE 7th AsiaPacific Conference on Antennas and Propagation, 2018)This paper presents a novel flexible inkprintable logperiodic wideband dipole array (LPDA) antenna for millimeterwave applications. The antenna is fed by microstrip line through a wideband microstriptocoplanar stripline ... 
Flexural motion of a semiinfinite floating plate under localised edge loading
(New Zealand Mathematical Society (nzmathsoc.org.nz), 2010)Numerical computation of ﬂexural motion of a ﬂoating elastic plate is often complicated. The linear approximation of the motion makes the computation tractable for simple harmonic waves in a plate. I will introduce a few ... 
Fluency in information technology  FITNZ: an ICT curriculum metaframework for New Zealand high schools
(NACCQ, 2005)This paper proposes an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Curriculum MetaFramework to operate at the senior secondary school level in New Zealand. This metaframework arises from the Fluency in Information ... 
Flux pump for HTS rotating machinery applications
(IEEE, 2015)High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) machines offer several benefits over the conventional machines. With the advent of YBCO materials, research and development in HTS applications has gained significant impetus. The ... 
FM Kiwistyle: the development of FM professionals in New Zealand
(2015)This research paper conducts a review of the development of facilities management as a profession and some of the key moments in that journey. It then considers the situation of New Zealand, which has a number of characteristics ... 
Focus and setting in mobile learning research: a review of the literature
(IBIMA Publishing, 2009)Mobile learning (mLearning) is an ubiquitous learning activity supported by the appropriate mobile technology and pedagogical approach. Mobile learning research has experienced a significant growth in the last half a ... 
‘Follow the Moon’ Development: Writing a Systematic Literature Review on Global Software Engineering Education
(ACM, 2015)This presentation reflects on method and practice in Computer Science Education Research, through introducing the process of conducting a Systematic Literature Review. While Systematic Literature Reviews are an established ... 
Forest and Wood Products Australia Project PN04.2005: maximising impact sound resistance of timber framed floor/ceiling systems
(Forest & Wood Products Australia Limited (FWPA), 2007)This project further developed existing Australasian and overseas research to produce floor/ceiling systems for floors having acoustic properties which are comparable with concrete floor constructions, while also meeting ... 
Formability of Magnesium Alloys AZ80 and ZE10
(Trans Tech Publications Ltd., 2014)Formability of two magnesium alloys, namely, AZ80 and ZE10, has been investigated. Both alloys were supplied with a thickness of 0.8 mm. The grain structure of the asreceived AZ80 alloy showed dislocations, twins and ... 
Formalizing Probability Concepts in a Type Theory
(Science Publications, 2018)In this paper we formalize some fundamental concepts of probability theory such as the axiomatic definition of probability space, random variables and their characteristics, in the Calculus of Inductive Constructions, which ... 
A foundation programme preparing students for future study in Computing and Engineering Degrees
(IEEE, 2016)This paper presents the Certificate of Science and Technology (CertScT) a predegree programme at Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand, developed with the aim of preparing students to undertake degree level ... 
A Framework for Writing Learning Agreements
(IEEE, 2016)Abstract: Active learning is a popular concept for motivating learning. Learning agreements are one strategy towards this goal. They can be used to aid the students to take ownership of their learning and in becoming more ... 
A Framework of Evaluation of Mobile Wellness Apps for Use in a Clinical Setting
(IEEE, 2017)Mobile apps have been developed for monitoring health and wellness for various reasons such as selfmanagement of chronic diseases, weight loss and maintain healthy life style. As consumers, patients are flooded with new ... 
Freebody and flexural motion of a floating elastic plate under wave maker forcing
(ICIAM, 2011)One difficulty with computing the surge of a floating elastic plate is that Green's function for the boundary value problem has singularities at the corners of the boundary. This paper shows how to resolve the integrals ...
