      Pietroszek, Krzysztof (University of Waterloo, 2015-07-24)
      In recent years, display technology has evolved to the point where displays can be both non-stereoscopic and stereoscopic, and 3D environments can be rendered realistically on many types of displays. From movie theatres ...
    • 3D printing of soft hydrogels incorporating functional nanomaterials 

      Wu, Yun (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-10)
      Tissue engineering (TE) scaffolds are required to closely mimic the human body environment to enable the study of cell behavior in vitro and allow the fabrication of artificial tissue constructs. The scaffolds should possess ...
    • 3D Reconstruction of 138 KV Power-lines from Airborne LiDAR Data 

      Xiang, Qing (University of Waterloo, 2014-02-20)

      Nadeau, Danielle (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-12)
      This thesis presents the results of seven commercialized DNA ancestry tests that are all available to the public, for under $400 Canadian dollars each. This research is conducted to explore the use of commercialized DNA ...
    • 4D induced matter from non-compact 5D Kaluza-Klein gravity 

      Sajko, W. J. (University of Waterloo, 2000)
    • A 4d Lorentzian Spin Foam Model With Timelike Surfaces 

      Hnybida, Jeffrey (University of Waterloo, 2010-10-07)
      We construct a 4d Lorentzian spin foam model capable of describing both spacelike and timelike surfaces. To do so we use a coherent state approach inspired by the Riemannian FK model. Using the coherent state method we ...
    • 5-Choosability of Planar-plus-two-edge Graphs 

      Mahmoud, Amena (University of Waterloo, 2018-01-02)
      We prove that graphs that can be made planar by deleting two edges are 5-choosable. To arrive at this, first we prove an extension of a theorem of Thomassen. Second, we prove an extension of a theorem Postle and Thomas. ...
    • 5-HT7 Receptor Neuroprotection against Excitotoxicity in the Hippocampus 

      Vasefi, Seyedeh Maryam (University of Waterloo, 2014-04-11)
      Introduction and Objectives: The PDGFβ receptor and its ligand, PDGF-BB, are expressed throughout the central nervous system (CNS), including the hippocampas. Several reports confirm that PDGFβ receptors are neuroprotective ...
    • 50:50—Sovereignty, Price, Density, Efficiency: Housing-led Economic Urban Expansion in Hong Kong. 

      Tam, Kam-Ming Mark (University of Waterloo, 2015-09-16)
      Hong Kong is an ideal laboratory in which to study relationships between economy and architecture. In this city, tremendous power is held by both the state and in private capital. Urban form may be read as a tangible ...
    • 53 North: Tactical Infrastructure in Edmonton 

      Clayton, Bryce (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-15)
      Edmonton, Alberta is the northernmost major city in North America, but inappropriate urban form has created a winter culture of avoidance. Long, straight city streets and a proliferation of voids within the downtown urban ...
    • 56 Days of Solitude 

      Alladin, Kemal (University of Waterloo, 2016-09-21)
      Man is a social animal. He needs community for support and for the success of his life. Yet, throughout history, man has withdrawn from community to retreat into the wilderness. The journey takes him from the world, into ...
    • 60 Watts Broadband Push Pull RF Power Amplifier Using LTCC Technology 

      Jundi, Ayman (University of Waterloo, 2013-09-27)
      The continuous increase in wireless usage forces an immense pressure on wireless communication in terms of increased demand and spectrum scarcity. Service providers for communication services had no choice but to allocate ...
    • 80 Fathoms Deep 

      de Cola, Marianna Rosa (University of Waterloo, 2011-08-26)
      The history of Newfoundland is intimately tied to its relationship with the sea, to its island status and its consequent cultural isolation, to its reliance on fishing and more recently oil. But it is also one of tides - ...
    • 9 Sum Sorcery 

      Hildreth, Alexis (University of Waterloo, 2017-04-25)
      9 Sum Sorcery is a multimedia exhibition comprised of video and sculpture. Nine screens depict 'The Player' performing with an assortment of augmented found materials within the framework of a board game. The Player ...
    • a-Si:H-Silicon Hybrid Low Energy X-ray Detector 

      Shin, Kyung-Wook (University of Waterloo, 2014-09-15)
      Low energy X-ray (< 20 keV) detection is a key technological requirement in applications such as protein crystallography or diffraction imaging. Silicon based optical cameras based on CCDs or CMOS imaging chips coupled to ...
    • A. Schopenhauer and F. Dostoevsky: Some Philosophical and Literary Parallels 

      Minin, Oleg (University of Waterloo, 2016-09-29)
      This thesis juxtaposes the philosophical theories of Arthur Schopenhauer with themes and characters in Fyodor Dostoevsky's major fictional works of the middle post-Siberian period (1863-1871). Of particular interest is the ...
