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.

Making a deposit has never been easier. Complete the Library's short copyright review and deposit service form and we’ll determine the copyright status of your publications, identify the versions that are eligible for deposit, and make the deposits on your behalf.

  • Tensor networks, quantum spin chains, and quantum field theory 

    Zou, Yijian (University of Waterloo, 2020-07-07)
    Understanding the universality class of continuous phase transition is of central importance in condensed matter physics. In one spatial dimension, the universal properties are encoded in the conformal field theory (CFT), ...
  • Interplay between Autophagy and Apoptosis During Skeletal Muscle Differentiation 

    Fatemeh, Keyvani (University of Waterloo, 2020-07-07)
    Our previous studies showed that autophagy regulates apoptosis and is required for proper skeletal muscle differentiation. Previously, we inhibited autophagy in C2C12 cells using 3MA (3-methyladenine) treatment or shRNA ...
  • Renormalization, Entanglement and Continuous Tensor Networks 

    Franco Rubio, Adrián (University of Waterloo, 2020-07-07)
    The study of the ground states of local Hamiltonians in quantum many-body and quantum field theoretic systems is a source of many research problems of great complexity. Almost in its entirety, this thesis deals with ...
  • Goldberg's conjecture is true for random multigraphs 

    Haxell, Penny; Krivelevich, Michael; Kronenberg, Gal (Elsevier, 2019-09)
    In the 70s, Goldberg, and independently Seymour, conjectured that for any multigraph G, the chromatic index χ′(G) satisfies χ′(G) ≤ max{∆(G)+1,⌈ρ(G)⌉}, where ρ(G) = max\{\frac {e(G[S])}{\lfloor|S|/2\rfloor} \mid S\subseteq ...
  • A Stability Theorem for Matchings in Tripartite 3-Graphs 

    Haxell, Penny; Narins, Lothar (Cambridge University Press, 2018-04-02)
    It follows from known results that every regular tripartite hypergraph of positive degree, with n vertices in each class, has matching number at least n/2. This bound is best possible, and the extremal configuration is ...
