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 WellingtonHypothesis: Effects of globalisation, European Integration and reunification 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 'AngloSaxonisation' of the German political economy.

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 WaikatoThe 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, 331337". 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.

Combined Vertical Ozone Profile Database
Bodeker, Greg; Hassler, Birgit; Young, Paul; Portmann, Robert (2011)
Dataset
Victoria University of WellingtonBodeker 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) + Ageofair dependent equivalent effective stratospheric chlorine D(t,lat) x QBO(t) + Quasibiennial Oscillation E(t,lat) x QBOorthog(t) + Orthogonalized QBO F(t,lat) x ENSO(t) + ElNiño 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_REFB1_BSOzoneXXYYY_TierZZ_T2Mz_O3.nc where: CCMVal2 indicates that these data files have been formatted to allow easy use in the CCMVal2 project. REFB1 indicates that the time period covered is similar to that for the REFB1 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 notforprofit 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.

VGAM 1.03
Yee, Thomas (20170110)
Dataset
The University of Auckland LibraryAn implementation of about 6 major classes of statistical regression models. At the heart of it are the vector generalized linear and additive model (VGLM/VGAM) classes, and the book "Vector Generalized Linear and Additive Models: With an Implementation in R" (Yee, 2015) gives details of the statistical framework and VGAM package. Currently only fixedeffects models are implemented, i.e., no randomeffects models. Many (150+) models and distributions are estimated by maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) or penalized MLE, using Fisher scoring. VGLMs can be loosely thought of as multivariate GLMs. VGAMs are datadriven VGLMs (i.e., with smoothing). The other classes are RRVGLMs (reducedrank VGLMs), quadratic RRVGLMs, reducedrank VGAMs, RCIMs (rowcolumn interaction models)—these classes perform constrained and unconstrained quadratic ordination (CQO/UQO) models in ecology, as well as constrained additive ordination (CAO).

Theology in Aotearoa New Zealand: Endnote library
Darragh, Neil (2007)
Dataset
The University of Auckland LibraryThe 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 videotapes, 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 selfcriticism 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 selfcriticism 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).
