Welcome to UWSpace
UWSpace is the University of Waterloo's institutional repository for the research and scholarship produced by its faculty, students, and staff. A service of the Library, UWSpace provides researchers with a free, secure, and long-term home for the presentation, dissemination, and preservation of their research and scholarship. By utilizing UWSpace researchers ensure their work achieves compliance with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications.
Looking for Waterloo theses and dissertations? UWSpace contains all theses and dissertations published from October 2006 on, and a subset from 1996 through 2006, when electronic submission was optional. Older theses can be accessed by searching the library catalogue by title or author last name.

Exploring Toronto's Inner Frontier (University of Waterloo, 2023-06-05)It is without ceasing that urban spaces witness the cycle of their birth and death. Like the waves of an ocean repeatedly crashing into and withdrawing from the shoreline, the city’s sphere of production and human ...
(Non)-Invertible Topology in Quantum Field Theory (University of Waterloo, 2023-06-05)This thesis aims to highlight aspects of mathematics and physics that arise in topological field theories. We will consider invertible and noninvertible topological theories. In the former case, we compute the classification ...
Higher Gauge Theory and Discrete Geometry (University of Waterloo, 2023-06-05)In four dimensions, gravity can be seen as a constrained topological model. This provides a natural way to construct quantum gravity models, since topological models are relatively straightforward to quantize. Difficulty ...
New approaches for the real-time optimization of process systems under uncertainty (University of Waterloo, 2023-06-05)In the process industry, the economical operation of systems is of utmost importance for stakeholders to remain competitive. Moreover, economic incentives can be used to drive the development of sustainable processes, which ...
Development of a Moving Front Kinetic Monte Carlo Algorithm to Simulate Moving Interface Systems (University of Waterloo, 2023-06-02)Moving interfaces play vital and crucial roles in a wide variety of different natural, technological, and industrial processes, including solids dissolution, capillary action, sessile droplet spreading, and superhydrophobicity. ...
