ITR Masters and Ph.D. Theses

The ITR Theses page has a new home. Please go to http://www.itr.unisa.edu.au/research/pubs/thesis.php. No new theses will be added to this site.

Welcome to ITR's Masters and Ph.D. Theses home page. Here you will find gzipped postscript files of the theses of staff and students at the Institute for Telecommunications Research, University of South Australia, The Levels.

Downloading the documents at this site

If you download any of the theses below, please leave your name, address, email address, and any comments at the bottom of the page. You can also request to be added to our email distribution list so that you can be updated when any new thesis is added to the site.

You can view and print postscript, gzipped postscript and pdf files using Ghostscript, Ghostview and GSview. You can uncompress gzipped files using Gzip. Some thesis consist of many postscript files that have been zipped into a single file. These files can be unzipped using Info-ZIP.

Common Problems

If you have trouble uncompressing a file, this could be caused by your browser uncompressing the file for you, but not renaming the file correctly. Renaming the file to file.ps should correct this problem.

If you have trouble printing a file, this could be caused by your browser renaming the file incorrectly (indicating that the file is uncompressed when in fact it is still compressed). Renaming the file to file.ps.gz and then uncompressing the file should correct this problem.

If only the first few pages are printed, this could be caused by an old version of ghostview which crashes when it encounters an embedded postscript file. Installing the latest version of ghostview should correct this problem.

Older versions of Netscape don't recognise gzipped files and so Netscape will display the entire content of the file (which will look fairly strange). Select File -> Save As... from your menu to save the file in your directory.

If you still can't view, gunzip or print the files then please send an email to Steven Pietrobon (steven@spri.levels.unisa.edu.au).
