Forrest Gump: theological text in a postmodern context
(University of Winnipeg, 2004)
As a Christian minister I have been trained in interpretation of the biblical text. This current interpretive exercise goes beyond the biblical text, however, to include contemporary artistic expression. The modern North ...
Accelerating Computation of Zernike and Pseudo-Zernike Moments with a GPU Algorithm
(University of Winnipeg Library, 2020-12-09)
Although Zernike and pseudo-Zernike moments have some advanced properties, the computation process is generally very time-consuming, which has limited their practical applications. To improve the computational efficiency ...
Community forests Canada: Bridging practice, research and advocacy. A Symposium and Workshop Report.
The purpose of this report is to share experiences and observations from the Community Forests Canada joint workshop-symposium hosted by the Centre for Forest Interdisciplinary Research and Department of Environmental ...
The Brachistochrone Problem: Mathematics for a Broad Audience via a Large Context Problem
(Montana Council of Teachers of Mathematics & Information Age Publishing, 2008)
Large context problems (LCP) are useful in teaching the history of science. In this article we consider the brachistochrone problem in a context stretching from Euclid through the Bernoullis. We highlight a variety of ...
Extremal words in morphic subshifts
Given an infinite word x over an alphabet A, a letter b occurring in x, and a total order \sigma on A, we call the smallest word with respect to \sigma starting with b in the shift orbit closure of x an extremal word of ...
Neighbourhood-based vision systems
(Taylor and Francis, 2011)
The problem presented in this paper is how to find similarities between digital images useful in design cybernetic vision systems. The solution to this problem stems from a neighbourhood based vision system. A neighbourhood ...
Attainable lengths for circular binary words avoiding k-powers
(The Belgian Mathematical Society, 2005)
We show that binary circular words of length n avoiding 7/3+ powers exist for every sufficiently large n. This is not the case for binary circular words avoiding k+ powers with k < 7/3
Long-Range Dispersal Behaviour and Spatial Distribution Modelling of Adult Mosquitoes in the Winnipeg Region
(University of Winnipeg Library, 2020-12-15)
Mosquitoes are present in virtually every nation worldwide, acting as both a vector for many serious pathogens, and as a nuisance because of their blood-feeding behaviours. As a principle of Integrated Mosquito Management ...
