Intelligent support systems in agriculture : a study of their adoption and use by Teresa Lynch( Book )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Australian agriculture is one area in which a number of intelligent support systems have been developed. It appears, however, that comparatively few of these systems are widely used or have the impact the developers might have wished. In this study a possible explanation for this state of affairs was investigated. The development process for 66 systems was examined. Particular attention was paid to the nature of user involvement, if any, during development and the relationship to system success."--Abstract
Performances of Bonsmara and Belmont red cattle breeds in South Africa by Nicholas J Corbet( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The South African Bonsmara and the Australian Belmont Red cattle breeds were developed to improve production of marketable beef in tropical and sub-tropical regions. Both breeds combined the tropical adaptability of the Afrikaner, an African Sanga genotype, and the high growth and reproduction potential of the British breeds, Hereford and Shorthorn. The Belmont Red breed, over the past two decades, has been a part of progressive composite breed development plans in northern Australia. The recent introduction of the Bonsmara to Australia, however, has supplied a suitable candidate breed for use in composite breed development. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the performance of the two breeds across a range of production triats and South African environments to more clearly define the roles of the Belmont Red and Bonsmara breeds in the production of beef. The results are extrapolated to similar northern Australian environments. Additionally, the accumulated dataset provides an opportunity to estimate variance components for economically important traits to provide practical reference values for further genetic evaluation of the combined breeds."--Abstract

Stability analysis for a partial element equivalent circuit (PEEC) model of neutral type by Qing-Long Han( )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is concerned with the problem of robust stability analysis for a partial element equivalent circuit (PEEC) model of neutral type. Based on Lyapunov stability theory and a linear matrix inequality (LMI) approach, some sufficient delay-dependent stability conditions are derived. A numerical example shows that the result using the method in the paper is less conservative than that using some existing methods in the literature

Sweet sounds of a sugar town by Dane Costigan( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The CD/DVD combines archival research, original music compositions, soundscapes (industrial and environmental), film and oral histories to illuminate the socio-cultural and economic history of a major regional Queensland industry. The original compositions are based on the soundscapes; for example, the rhythms of trains provide the metronomic pulse for compositions and the sounds of birds and cicadas provide the ambience for other compositions
Towards a reinterpretation of the radical theory of associative rings using base radical and base semisimple class constructions by Melanie Soo Chin( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This research aims to refresh and reinterpret the radical theory of associative rings using the base radical and base semisimple class constructions. It also endeavours to generalise some results about ideals of rings in terms of accessible subrings. A characterisation of accessible subrings is included. By applying the base radical and base semisimple class constructions to many of the known results in established radical theory a number of gaps are uncovered and closed, with the goal of making the theory more accessible to advanced undergraduate and graduate students and mathematicians in related fields, and to open up new areas of investigation. After a literature review and brief reminder of algebra rudiments, the useful properties of accessible subrings and the U and S operators independent from radical class connections are described. The section on accessible subrings illustrates that replacing ideals with accessible subrings is indeed possible for a number of results and demonstrates its usefulness. The traditional radical and semisimple class definitions are included and it is shown that the base radical and base semisimple class constructions are equivalent. Diagrams illustrating the constructions support the definitions. From then on, all radical and semisimple classes mentioned are understood to have the base radical and base semisimple class form. Subject to the constraints of this work, many known results of traditional radical theory are reinterpreted with new proofs, illustrating the potential to simplify the understanding of radical theory using the base radical and base semisimple class constructions. Along with reinterpreting known results, new results emerge giving further insight to radical theory and its intricacies. Accessible subrings and the U and S operators are integrated into the development. The duality between the base radical and base semisimple class constructions is demonstrated in earnest. With a measure of the theory presented, the new constructions are applied to examples and concrete radicals. Context is supported by establishing the relationship between some well-known rings and the radical and related classes of interest. The title of the thesis, Towards a Reinterpretation of the Radical Theory of Associative Rings Using Base Radical and Base Semisimple Class Constructions, reflects the understanding that reinterpreting the entirety of radical theory is beyond the scope of this work. The conclusion includes an outlook listing further research that time did not allow."
Collaborative or cooperative learning? by Joanne McInnerney( )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With many educational institutions now making use of the Internet for the delivery of courses, many educators are showing interest in non-standard methodologies for teaching and learning - methodologies such as the use of online group collaborative or cooperative work. It is clearly beneficial for educators keen to introduce group learning into a tertiary environment to first familiarize themselves with the existing literature. However, much of the literature conflates the two terms, hence implementation methods and research results are hard to assess. This chapter attempts to clearly distinguish the two terms "collaborative" and "cooperative" so that they can be used appropriately and unambiguously, briefly describes the advantages and shortcompings of each, and concludes with some remarks as to the application of such methods in an online environment

IT investment : rationalizing ERP adoption by David John Oliver( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This thesis explores how organisations justify adopting Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. The data used for the study are electronically mediated justifications for ERP adoption presented by universities. An interpretive study of these using grounded theory is made, from which a model of ERP adoption is constructed. This model is then examined to explore the underlying values that support the rationales contained in the model. The perspectives on communication, rationality, legitimacy and domination provided by Max Weber and Jurgen Habermas are employed in this analysis. The conclusions reached are that in the context of ERP adoption, people occupy a subservient role to technology, process and organisation; that technology is intrinsically valued and that fundamental organisational values can be subverted."--Abstract
Developing countries and information and communication technologies (ICTs) : from digital divide to digital opportunity to closing the reality gap by Colleen Vanderstaay( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Information and communication technologies (lCTs) and in particular the Internet could have great implications for developing countries. The implications of ICTs for developing countries could be seen as evolving through three phases - encompassing the digital divide viewed as a threat, the digital opportunity providing developing nations with a means of hastening development and a third phase identifying a reality gap between what was planned and what has resulted based on the empirical evidence emerging from initiatives by international agencies to address the digital divide and digital opportunity. Developments in India and Africa will highlight progress made in developing countries
CSCW : the development of a taxonomy by Sylvia Ann Ward( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Computer supported cooperative work (CSCW) is a research field that studies the use of computer technology for group work. A review of the CSCW literature found that the use of terminology and definitions were inconsistent. This paper reports on the process of development of an holistic taxonomy of terminology and related definitions used in the CSCW literature from 1996 to 2003. The taxonomic structure will provide a framework for classifying the terminology and defining each concept to improve communication in this field. The completed structure will be presented to other researchers to determine implications for research practice
Building grounded theory : issues and experiences by Steven Pace( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this paper, the author discusses his experiences applying the grounded theory method to a research problem in the field of human-computer interaction. The focus of the paper is not on the results of the study, but on contentious aspects of the research method such as the differences between Glaserian and Straussian approaches to grounded theory, the use of the literature, the consequences of recording interviews with informants, and the use of qualitative analysis software. The techniques and issues that are discussed in this paper may be of assistance to other researchers who wish to develop grounded theory
Embodiment : computer networks and symbiosis revisited by Ashley Holmes( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In a discussion that investigates understanding of individual and shared realities we consider in this paper suggestions that computer-mediation has a dehumanising, disembodying effect. A tonic blended from Merleau-Ponty's phenomenology and Latour and Callon's actor-network theory is prescribed as an antidote for what has been described as the post-human condition. It is suggested that J.C.R. Licklider's notion of human-computer symbiosis from 1960 may be reconsidered to investigate contemporary networked computer communication using the "six step key" from the theory of autopoiesis (Varela, Maturana & Uri be, 1974) to establish whether the Internet may be considered a consensual domain, or an autopoietic unity
Robust H-inf non-fragile controller design for uncertain descriptor systems with time-varying discrete and distributed delays by Yue Dong( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper is concerned with the design problem of non-fragile H-inf controller for uncertain descriptor systems with time-varying discrete and distributed delays and controller gain variations. The designed controller is shown to be robust not only to parameter uncertainties, but also to errors in the controller coefficients. The obtained criterion to derive an effiicient non-fragile H-inf control design is expressed as a set of nonconvex matrix inequalities, which can be solved by combining both linear matrix inequalities technique and cone complementarity method. A numerical example is given to demonstrate effectiveness of the proposed methods
The Wiz projections by Steven Pace( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This project explored the use of cinematic theatre as a substitute for traditional physical sets in the Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music's production of the Wiz, a theatrical re-imaging of the Wizard of Oz"--Notes
The need for categorization of groupware by Sylvia Ann Ward( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

There is a proliferation of terms all relating to support of groups or collaboration in some form, and there is a proliteration of software and systems all purporting to support groups in some form. This paper examines the terms and categorization models that have been used in the literature to define the different types of computer supported group systems and argues tor the need for a new classitication system that can provide a framework tor identitying the characteristics of each type of system. This framework can then be used to more clearly define these systems
A review of environmental impact assessments (EIA) for coal mine developments and the use of social and economic impact assessment in the Bowen Basin : tools and trends by Stewart Lockie( )

1 edition published in 2005 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report is the second in a report series about the social and economic impacts of coal mining on regional communities in the Bowen Basin region of Queensland. As outlined in the first report (Rolfe et al. 2005), the coal mining industry makes a key contribution to the Queensland economy and is the underlying driver of employment and economic conditions in many local and regional communities. Current high levels of growth in the industry are increasing output, spending, employment and population in many regional areas with associated economic and social impacts
Domain of attraction of hysteresis-series based chaotic attractors by Xing Huo Yu( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper discusses the domain of attraction and its sensitivity for a class of chaotic attractors generated by using second-order linear systems with hysteresis-series. It is found that the domain of attraction of the chaotic attractors is determined by an unstable limit cycle. The chaotic dynamical behaviors are demonstrated by using the Poincaré map. The sensitivity of the domain of attraction with respect to the system parameters is studied and some simulation results are presented
