#### A methodology for aggregating industries of input-output models, with application to New Zealand interindustry data

(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1978)

Aggregation, as it applies to input-output analysis, is the process of grouping industries of an interindustry model into sectors so as to produce an intersectoral model, which is more manageable in that its dimensions are ...

#### Multipliers from regional non-survey input-output tables for New Zealand

(Lincoln College. Agricultural Economics Research Unit., 1981)

The aims of this study are to estimate, using
a non-survey technique, input-output tables for the
thirteen Statistical Areas of New Zealand (ref.
Figures 1 & 2) and then to use these tables to derive
output, income and ...

#### The use of linear programming in least-cost feed compounding

(Lincoln College. Agricultural Economics Research Unit., 1965)

Intensive types of livestock production such as
poultry and pigs promise to become of increasing
importance in New Zealand agriculture. In such enterprises,
feed costs constitute a very high proportion
of total variable ...

#### Mathematical modelling of the core regulatory feedback mechanisms of p53 protein that decide cell fate

(Lincoln University, 2014)

Cells defence against stresses that can cause DNA damage (single-strand breaks, double-strand breaks) is crucial in safeguarding the integrity of the genome and the survival of the organism as a whole. One of the genes ...

#### Dynamic programming applied to animal replacement decisions

(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1975)

This study of the economics of animal replacement lies on the border of two well developed areas of knowledge. On the one hand it draws on the theory of animal breeding and on the other on replacement theory. Replacement ...

#### Interactive shape preserving interpolation by curvature continuous rational cubic splines

(Lincoln University. Applied Computing, Mathematics and Statistics Group, 1999-01)

A scheme is described for interactively modifying the shape of
convexity preserving planar interpolating curves. An initial curve is
obtained by patching together rational cubic and straight line segments.
This scheme has, ...

#### Closed form solution of an exponential kernel integral equation

(Scientific Journals International, 2007)

In this note a Fredholm integral equation of the first kind with exponential expressions for the kernel and right hand side is considered. The task of finding a practically usable solution to such an equation may need ...

#### Iterative solution of quadratic tensor equations for mutual polarisation

(Hindawi Publishing, 2002)

To describe mutual polarisation in bulk materials containing high polarisability molecules, local fields beyond the linear approximation needs to be included. A second order tensor equation is formulated that describes ...

#### Generalised adaptive harmony search: A comparative analysis of modern harmony search

(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013)

Harmony search (HS) was introduced in 2001 as a heuristic population-based optimisation algorithm. Since then HS has become a popular alternative to other heuristic algorithms like simulated annealing and particle swarm ...

#### Using codispersion analysis to quantify temporal changes in the spatial pattern of forest stand structure

(Chilean Statistical Society, 2016-09)

Forest development involves a complex set of ecological processes, such as dispersal and competition for light, which can generate a range of spatial patterns in forest structure that change through time. One interesting ...
