School of Computer and Mathematical Sciences

 

Computing and mathematics are important for changing the world as well as dealing with a changing world. Many of the major problems currently facing the planet, such as energy conservation, climate control, finding new drugs for disease, preventing identity theft and the criminal activity on the Internet, all rely on new ways to use computing and of finding new mathematical solutions to global problems.

The School of Computer and Mathematical Sciences has strong research interests in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, especially Astronomy and Cosmology, Computational and Mathematical Finance, Distributed and Ad-hoc Networks, Mobile Systems, Computer Graphics and Game Programming.

    We describe our current VLBI activities with the 12m dish; but also with the conversion of a former 100-foot (30-m) telecommunication antenna in New Zealand into a radio telescope show the future capabilities. Provide a ...
  • Parry, D; Houliston, B; Foy, J (IEEE International Conference on Healthcare Informatics 2014 (ICHI 2014); 2014)
    Measuring activity in the operating theatre is a difficult but important task. Using ultra wideband active RFID tags (UWB) we were able to track and Anesthetist and anesthetic technician during a simulated operation. A ...
  • Sripirakas, S; Pears, R (arXiv; 2014)
    In this research we address the problem of capturing recurring concepts in a data stream environment. Recurrence capture enables the re-use of previously learned classifiers without the need for re-learning while providing ...
  • Chung, H; Fox, C (The International Workshop on Water Waves and Floating Bodies (IWWWFB); 2005)
    This paper presents studies of wave propagation across a crack in an ice sheet. We consider a crack between two ice sheets that are infinitely stretching to either side. The theoretical model of the ice sheet assumes that ...
  • Chung, H (Kiwi-Oz Waves Conferences (KOZ Waves), The University of Newcastle; 2014)
    We employ linear wave theory to study long range attenuation of ocean waves caused by small, random perturbations in the seabed. The phenomenon in an example of localization in random media. A multiple-scale method is used, ...
  • Chung, H; Lee, J (KU Leuven - Department of Mechanical Engineering; 2014)
    The topic of this paper is an inverse problem of identifying defects in composite beams and plates. The physical representation of defects is parametrized. Assuming Gaussian errors in measurements, the Bayesian inference ...
  • Clear, AL (Computing and Information Technology Research and Education New Zealand (CITRENZ); 2014)
    Introductory programming courses are known worldwide to pose challenges for both students and educators. A recent meta-review of research in the area has indicated something in the order of a sixty six percent pass rate ...
  • Chung, H; Linton, CM; Chung, H (WAMIT; 2003)
    This paper reports a new method of computing the coefficients of the modal expansion of the velocity potential for the so-called linear hydroelasticity problem. Two examples of the hydroelasticity problems are studied, ...
  • Kasto, N; Whalley, JL; Philpott, A; Whalley, D (Australian Computer Society, Inc.; 2014)
    This paper explores the idea of solution space in the context of novice programmers and code writing tasks. A definition for solution space is provided and an analysis of a series of code writing questions from a first ...
  • Hussain, W; Clear, T (IEEE; 2014)
    Globally distributed stakeholders employ various collaborative technologies to manage requirements. While these technologies facilitate requirements collaboration, their perceived purpose, use and structure co-evolve over ...
  • Klymchuk, S; Zverkova, T (Horwood Publishing; 2001)
    The aim of this study was to find out what university students, studying mathematics as a service course, think about the role of the mathematical modelling process and application problems in their studies. For this purpose ...
  • Klymchuk, S (Taylor & Francis; 2014)
    The paper describes a personal experience with using counterexamples as a pedagogical strategy in the teaching and learning of an introductory calculus course at a university of technology.
