      Bin packing is a problem with many applications in various industries. This thesis addresses a specific instance of the this problem, known as the Container Packing problem. Special attention is paid to the Pallet Loading ...
    • Planarity testing and embedding algorithms. 

      Carson, D. I. (1990)
      This thesis deals with several aspects of planar graphs, and some of the problems associated with non-planar graphs. Chapter 1 is devoted to introducing some of the fundamental notation and tools used in the remainder of ...
    • Qualitative and structural analysis of video sequences. 

      Brits, Alessio. (2013-10-17)
      This thesis analyses videos in two distinct ways so as to improve both human understanding and the computer description of events that unfold in video sequences. Qualitative analysis can be used to understand a scene in ...
    • A real time, system independent, secure, Internet based auctioning system. 

      Brown, Cuan. (2000)
      This thesis outlines the creation of a secure, real time, system independent, Internet based auctioning application. The system has been developed to meet the needs of today's stringent reqUirements on secure Internet ...
    • Relieving the cognitive load of constructing molecular biological ontology based queries by means of visual aids. 

      O'Neill, Kieran. (2007)
      The domain of molecular biology is complex and vast. Bio-ontologies and information visualisation have arisen in recent years as means to assist biologists in making sense of this information. Ontologies can enable the ...
    • Scenario testing using OWL.

      Abstract available in PDF file.
    • Settlement type classification using aerial images. 

      Mdakane, Lizwe. (2014)
      In metropolitan and urban areas, the problems relating to rapid transformations that are taking place in terms of land cover and land use are now very pronounced, e.g., the rapid increase and unpredictable spread of ...
    • Shot classification in broadcast soccer video. 

      Guimaraes, Lionel. (2013)
      Event understanding systems, responsible for automatically generating human relatable event descriptions from video sequences, is an open problem in computer vision research that has many applications in the sports domain, ...
    • Specifying a forest harvest scheduling system which includes wood properties. 

      Price, Catherine Susan. (2009)
      This dissertation aims to specify a forest harvest scheduling system which includes wood properties in the harvesting decisions for the long-term (strategic) planning horizon. This system will be used by plantation ...
    • Spectral techniques for roughness estimation. 

      Lewis, Mark. (2001)
      Roughness is a relatively untouched field considering its significance to natural scientists. In this thesis mathematical techniques for measuring the roughness of signals are constructed and investigated. Both one ...
    • Speech recognition and blackboard expert systems. 

      Loureiro, Guy Marchand. (1992)
      Spoken language is used by people to communicate naturally with one another. A simplistic view of the communication process is as follows. Person A wishes to communicate an idea to person B. The idea, initiated in the ...
    • Studies in heuristics for the annual crop planning problem. 

      Chetty, Sivashan. (2015-01-07)
      Increase in the costs associated with agricultural production and the limited availability of resources have amplified the need for optimized solutions to the problem of crop planning. The increased costs have imparted ...
