  • Pantland, Nicolette Ariana (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2004-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) provides an opportunity for qualifying coastal signatory states to claim extended maritime estate. The opportunity to claim rests on the ...
  • Chamberlain, Morne Edward (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The aim of this thesis is to develop a generic 3D virtual environment development platform for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) therapy tools. The potential of using computerised therapy tools for ASD ...
  • Pretorius, Eugene (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2008-03)
    In this paper, tracking tools are developed based on object features to robustly track the object using particle filtering. Automatic on-line initialisation techniques use motion detection and dynamic background modelling ...
  • Joubert, Daniek (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In this thesis we consider the problem of building a dense and consistent map of a mobile robot’s environment that is updated as the robot moves. Such maps are vital for safe and collision-free ...
  • Rajaona, Solofomampionona Fortunat (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Stepwise development of a program using refinement ensures that the program correctly implements its requirements. The specification of a system is “refined” incrementally to derive an implementable ...
  • West, Lydia (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: We study Monte Carlo methods for pricing American options where the stock price dynamics follow exponential pure jump L évy models. Only stock price dynamics for a single underlying are considered. The ...
  • Omari, Mohamed (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: An integro-differential equation describing the dynamical behaviour of phytoplankton cells is considered in which the effects of cell division and aggregation are incorporated by coupling the ...
  • Kassa, Debassey Fesehaye (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2011-10)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The majority of tra c on the Internet uses the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) as a transport layer protocol for the end-to-end control of information transfer. Measurement, simulation and analytical ...
  • Singels, Wynand (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-03)
    When building or improving a petrochemical plant, drawings are used extensively in the design process. However, existing petrochemical plants seldom match their drawings, or the drawings are lost, forcing the need to ...
  • Le Roux, Gawie (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-12)
    The word numéraire refers to the unit of measurement used to value a portfolio of assets. The change of numéraire technique involves converting from one measurement to another. The foreign exchange markets are natural ...

  • Smal, Eugene (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-12)
    In this thesis we consider the modelling of a particular layout optimisation problem, namely, the LEGO construction problem. The LEGO construction problem, in short, concerns the optimal layout of a set of LEGO bricks ...
  • Louw, Lloyd A. B. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-03)
    The face is one of the most characteristic parts of the human body and has been used by people for personal identification for centuries. In this thesis an automatic process for frontal face recognition from 2–dimensional ...
  • Brewis, Louis Hugo (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
    It is an open question whether or not one can always lift Galois extensions of smooth algebraic curves in characteristic p to Galois extensions of smooth relative curves in characteristic 0. In this thesis we study some ...
  • Crous, C. B. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
    In this thesis we consider the dynamic path planning problem for robotics. The dynamic path planning problem, in short, is the task of determining an optimal path, in terms of minimising a given cost function, from one ...
  • Profitt, Barton (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: To reliably classify parts of an image sequence as foreground or background is an important part of many computer vision systems, such as video surveillance, tracking and robotics. It can also be important ...
  • Combrink, J. J. (Jacobus Johannes) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2004-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Traffic engineering determines the bandwidth allocation required to meet the traffic loads in a network. Similarly an economic market determines the resource allocation required to meet the demand for ...
  • Lusilao-Zodi, Guy-Alain (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2008-03)
    Consider a path-oriented telecommunications network where calls arrive to each route in a Poisson process. Each call brings on average a fixed number of packets that are offered to route. The packet inter-arrival times ...
  • Lutambi, Angelina Mageni (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2007-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: While research and population surveys in HIV/AIDS are well established in developed countries, Sub-Saharan Africa is still experiencing scarce HIV/AIDS information. Hence it depends on results obtained ...
