  • Matlab application for fitting progress curves to the Equilibrium Model

    Peterson, Michelle E.; McDowall, James; Goodhue, Nigel David; Bryan, Karin R.; Hailstone, Daniel; Monk, Colin R. (2010)

    Dataset
    University of Waikato

    The general procedures for carrying out the necessary rate determinations required for accurate determination of the Equilibrium Model parameters, and fitting this data to the mathematical model to generate the parameters, are described in "Peterson, M.E., Daniel, R.M., Danson, M.J. & Eisenthal, R. (2007) The dependence of enzyme activity on temperature: determination and validation of parameters. Biochemical Journal, 402, 331-337". It should be borne in mind that the Equilibrium Model equation contains exponentials of exponentials – quite small deviations from ideal behaviour, or a failure to obtain true Vmax values, may lead to difficulty in obtaining reliable Equilibrium Model parameters.

  • The End of the Rhineland Model? Changing Labour Relations in Germany - Evidence from the Minimum Wage Debate

    Reiling, Pascal (2010)

    Masters thesis
    Victoria University of Wellington

    Hypothesis: Effects of globalisation, European Integration and re-unification have pushed the German political economy away from its unique institutional setting, framed as Rhineland Capitalism or the Rhineland Model. Legislative decisions in the last years and current positions of politicoeconomic actors in wage setting mechanisms - a distinctive part of the Rhineland Model - seem to foster that shift and illustrate the incremental 'Anglo-Saxonisation' of the German political economy.

  • Combined Vertical Ozone Profile Database

    Bodeker, Greg; Hassler, Birgit; Young, Paul; Portmann, Robert (2011)

    Dataset
    Victoria University of Wellington

    Bodeker Scientific produces a combined monthly mean vertical ozone profile database spanning the period 1979 to 2007. The database is completely filled such that there are no missing data. A publication describing the construction of this database is currently in preparation. The raw individual ozone data are sourced from the BDBP database (see The BDBP). Monthly means are calculated from individual ozone measurements extracted from the BDBP in much the same way as in Hassler et al. (2009). These are referred to as Tier 0 data. A regression model is fitted to the Tier 0 data at each of 70 pressure/altitude levels. The regression model is of the form: Ozone(t,lat) = A(t,lat) + Offset and seasonal cycle B(t,lat) x t + Linear trend C(t,lat) x EESC(t,AoA) + Age-of-air dependent equivalent effective stratospheric chlorine D(t,lat) x QBO(t) + Quasi-biennial Oscillation E(t,lat) x QBOorthog(t) + Orthogonalized QBO F(t,lat) x ENSO(t) + El-Niño Southern Oscillation G(t,lat) x Solar(t) + Solar cycle H(t,lat) x Pinatubo(t) + Mt. Pinatubo volcanic eruption R(t) Residual Regression model fit coefficients are expanded in Fourier series to account for seasonality and in Legendre polynomials in latitude to account for meridional structure in the fit coefficients. Regression model output is then used to produce 4 gap free Tier 1 data sets, viz.: Tier 1.1 (Anthropogenic): This comprises the mean annual cycle plus contributions from the EESC and linear trend basis functions. Tier 1.2 (Natural): This comprises the mean annual cycle plus contributions from the QBO, solar cycle and El Niño basis functions. Tier 1.3 (Natural & volcanoes): Tier 1.2 but now also including contributions from volcano basis functions. Tier 1.4 (All): Constructed by summing the contributions from all basis functions. There are 20 files available named CCMVal2_REF-B1_BSOzone-XX-YYY_TierZZ_T2Mz_O3.nc where: CCMVal2 indicates that these data files have been formatted to allow easy use in the CCMVal2 project. REF-B1 indicates that the time period covered is similar to that for the REF-B1 simulations. XX is either 'MR' for mixing ratio or 'ND' for number density. YYY is either 'PRS' to denote that the data are on pressure levels or 'ALT' to denote that the data are on altitude levels. ZZ denotes the Tier: '0', '1_1', '1_2', '1_3' or '1_4'. T2Mz denotes that these are monthly means in two dimensions (latitude and altitude/pressure). At present Bodeker Scientific has no financial support to maintain this database and so if there is anyway that you can contribute towards the maintenance of this database, that would be much appreciated. That said, this database is made freely available to any not-for-profit organisation or individual. If you are going to be using this database in a publication, please let me know. At the very least please include the following acknowledgement: We would like to thank Greg Bodeker (Bodeker Scientific) and Birgit Hassler (NOAA) for providing the combined vertical ozone profile database.

Any rights in individual contents of the dataset are licensed under the Database Contents License: http://opendatacommons.org/licenses/dbcl/1.0/ Data in this collection was originally collected, with local ethics committee and patient consent, at 0.1 Hz from the Datex-Ohmeda S5 anaesthetic monitor via a serial connection using an ‘in-house’ data-collection program (A.Lowe). The data collected were converted to text files and stored in a Microsoft Excel™ file. The concurrent timed comments from clinicians included an assessment of the state of blood volume, whether there was sympathetic activity or a fall in cardiac output, amongst others, were collected in a separate file. This data was collected for the purpose of investigating methods of enhancing intra-operative diagnoses by an expert system [41]. A VBA (v6.5, Microsoft) script was used to merge and convert these files into the XML schema. Note that blood pressure values are 100 x the true value.

    This data is made available under the Open Database License: http://opendatacommons.org/licenses/odbl/1.0/. Any rights in individual contents of the database are licensed under the Database Contents License: http://opendatacommons.org/licenses/dbcl/1.0/ Manuscript accepted to JAMIA, http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/amiajnl-2012-001087 1.1. PURPOSE There is currently a lack of high quality anaesthetic records from operations which can be used for research purposes (especially to do with physiologic signals). The purpose of this database is to allow an easily accessible resource for researchers and clinicians to deposit and/or obtain complete clinical recordings. 1.2. DATA Ethics approval was obtained to collect and make accessible the data in this database. Data was collected using the SAFERSleep system [1] set to the highest data sampling rate (0.2Hz). Recordings include patient data, time-stamped medical events/interventions (e.g. drug, gas, vapour administration, repositioning of patient etc.) and physiologic data (e.g. heart rate, oxygen saturation etc.). The database contains 20 high quality anaesthetic cases made up of 13 male and 7 female patients aged between 21 and 70 years of age and weighing between 57 and 110kg undergoing shoulder arthroscopy operations. Each patient had between 17 and 26 measured variables over their proceedure, between 5 and 24 events, and between 18 and 58 drug administrations. In total, there are 400 signals over approximately 20 hours with 274 events and 597 drug administrations. Each case is a separate XML file and is easily navigated (Figure 0 1). The time series (physiologic) data is contained as comma-separated values (CSV) within the XML format. Combining the CSV and the XML makes the data easily read and allows for ease of creation should other researchers wish to add cases.

    Harrison, Michael; Cumin, David (2015-04-29)

    Dataset
    The University of Auckland Library

    Data in this collection was originally collected, with local ethics committee and patient consent, at 0.1 Hz from the Datex-Ohmeda S5 anaesthetic monitor via a serial connection using an ‘in-house’ data-collection program (a modification of that A.Lowe, which is incorporated into EBMi software - http://www.custos.co.nz). The data collected were converted to text files. The EBMi software generates an assessment of the state of blood volume, whether there was sympathetic activity or a fall in cardiac output, amongst other indices and were stored separate files. This data was collected for the purpose of investigating methods of enhancing intra-operative diagnoses by an expert system (http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.compbiomed.2014.12.017). An R script was used to merge and convert these files into the XML schema. With the exception of heart rate, pulse rate and respiratory rate all the values in the raw data are 100x the true values.

  • Theology in Aotearoa New Zealand: Endnote library

    Darragh, Neil (2007)

    Dataset
    The University of Auckland Library

    The criteria for inclusion in this bibliography are: 1) That an item be written. This bibliography thus does not include references to conversations, liturgies, audio- or video-tapes, dance, painting, sculpture, architecture, or carving even though a great deal of theological expression in Aotearoa New Zealand occurs in these forms. 2) That the work be one of Christian theology. This criterion should be thought of as a tendency along a continuum rather than a clear dividing line. Works included thus tend towards being a) explicit (or critical or formal) reflections with some degree of self-criticism on beliefs and values, including God, ethics, community, environment, etc. b) in the light of the Christian Scriptures or subsequent Church traditions, and c) are intended in some manner to be persuasive with an element of self-criticism rather than simply descriptive. To put the matter conversely, writings are less likely to be included to the extent that their theological content tends to be a) implicit (as is often the case in novels, short stories, history, and social commentary), and b) if they have no Christian reference (as in the case of reflections from other religious reference points or without explicit religious foundation at all), and c) if they are intended to be merely expressions of personal opinion without any sense of being proposals that invite other people’s adherence (as is often the case in autobiographies and personal comments on religious subjects in magazines and newspapers). 3) That the work be contextual to Aotearoa New Zealand. The term "contextual" is used here in the sense of "local". For inclusion in this bibliography contextual writings are those that make some degree of both substantial reference (more then simply examples and illustrations) and explicit reference (clearly stated local analysis and application) to Aotearoa New Zealand. This bibliography does not normally include historical writing. Religious history in New Zealand is already well served by Allan Davidson’s New Zealand Religious History Newsletter (http://hdl.handle.net/2292/1961) and Peter Lineham’s New Zealand Religious History Bibliography (http://www.massey.ac.nz/~plineham/RelhistNZ.htm). The author of this bibliography would welcome any additions or corrections within the above criteria, at n.darragh@auckland.ac.nz This document contains a bibliography in “Endnote” library format. It includes reference information and abstracts for theological writings contextual to Aotearoa New Zealand. It is offered as a resource for students of local theologies. This “Endnote” library is intended as a companion document to two “Word” documents also accessible on Researchspace at the University of Auckland (http://www.researchspace.auckland.ac.nz). One of these is an annotated bibliography categorised under subject headings entitled Theology in Aotearoa New Zealand: an annotated bibliography under subject headings (http://hdl.handle.net/2292/447).
