    • The GR3 Method for the Stress Analysis of Weldments 

      Chattopadhyay, Aditya (University of Waterloo, 2009-10-02)
      Determination of the fatigue life of a component requires knowledge of the local maximum fluctuation stress and the through-thickness stress distribution acting at the critical cross-section. This has traditionally been ...
    • A Gradual Non-Convexation Penalty Method for Minimizing VaR 

      Xi, Jiong (University of Waterloo, 2012-05-08)
      This thesis investigates the portfolio optimization problem using Value-at-Risk (VaR) as a risk measure, when m sample scenarios are given. Minimizing VaR of a portfolio is computationally difficult: it is non-convex, ...
    • Gradual Pluggable Typing in Java 

      Brotherston, Daniel, Scott (University of Waterloo, 2016-04-27)
      Gradual typing provides the ability to safely mix untyped or dynamically typed code with statically typed code while maintaining, within the statically typed portion, the guarantees claimed by the static typing. It is ...

      Yamada, Hirotaka (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-11)
      This thesis focuses on the nanofabrication process using novel electron beam resists. First, in Chapter 3 and Chapter 4, the nanofabrication process using grafted polymer monolayer brush as e-beam resist was examined. ...
    • Grammar-Based Representations of Large Sparse Binary Matrices 

      Bian, Jingyun (University of Waterloo, 2016-10-26)
      Large sparse matrices representation is a fundamental problem in big data processing and analysis. In some applications dealing with large sparse matrices, the I/O of these sparse matrices is the bottleneck of the whole ...
    • Grammatical Functions and Possibilistic Reasoning for the Extraction and Representation of Semantic Knowledge in Text Documents 

      Khoury, Richard (University of Waterloo, 2007-12-05)
      This study seeks to explore and develop innovative methods for the extraction of semantic knowledge from unlabelled written English documents and the representation of this knowledge using a formal mathematical expression ...
    • The Grange Hotel: Everyday Leisure in the Grange Neighbourhood 

      Kwak, Dongkyu Dan (University of Waterloo, 2015-05-07)
      The modern metropolis offers a wide variety of experiences to enrich our everyday life. Beyond meeting our daily needs, such a rich and diverse city is a complex system of urban phenomena that also satisfies our need for ...
    • Granger Causal Network Learning and the Depth Wise Grouped LASSO 

      Kinnear, Ryan (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-31)
      In this thesis we study the notion of Granger-causality, a statistical concept originally developed to estimate causal effects in econometrics. First, we suggest a more general notion of Granger-causality in which to frame ...
    • Granular Activated Carbon for the Removal of Seasonally Present Microcystin-LR 

      Chennette, Victoria (University of Waterloo, 2017-04-20)
      Microcystin-LR (MC-LR) is a potent hepatotoxin, produced by cyanobacteria. MC-LR is the most commonly regulated cyanotoxin. MC-LR typically occurs seasonally in late summer in temperate regions, such as the North American ...
    • Granular Filtration of Airborne NaCl Nanoparticles and Carbon Nanotubes 

      Yan, Chao (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-04)
      Filtration is one of the primary technologies for nanoparticle control. However, conventional filtration techniques are evaluated mostly for solid mass removal and do not show promising effectiveness for filtration of ...
    • Granularity measures and complexity measures of partition-based granular structures 

      Yao, Matthew X. (Elsevier, 2019-01-01)
      Granular computing is an emerging field of study in which the complexity of problem solving is reduced through granulation. Researchers have proposed various granularity measures of partitions to quantify the effects of ...
    • Graph C*-algebras and the Abelian Core 

      Eifler, Kari (University of Waterloo, 2016-08-26)
      We may associate to a C*-algebra to the directed graph E by associating edges to partial isometries and vertices to pairwise orthogonal Hilbert spaces which satisfy some additional conditions. Such graph algebras were first ...
    • Graph Editing to a Given Neighbourhood Degree List is Fixed-Parameter Tractable 

      Subramanya, Vijay (University of Waterloo, 2016-10-26)
      Graph editing problems have a long history and have been widely studied, with applications in biochemistry and complex network analysis. They generally ask whether an input graph can be modified by inserting and deleting ...
    • Graph Locality Prefetcher for Graph Database 

      Yin, Zhuoran (University of Waterloo, 2015-04-30)
      This work presents a hardware prefetcher to improve the performance of accessing graph data representing large and complex networks. We represent complex networks as graphs, and queries amount to traversals on the graph. ...
    • Graph-Based Fracture Models for Rigid Body Explosions 

      Socha, Jessica (University of Waterloo, 2005)
      Explosions are one of the most powerful and devastating natural phenomena. The pressure front from the blast wave of an explosion can cause fracture of objects in its vicinity and create flying debris. In this thesis, ...
    • Graph-Based Model For Distribution Systems: Application To Planning Problem 

      Labrini, Haytham (University of Waterloo, 2015-02-18)
      Distribution system engineers analyze distribution systems and operate them to minimize the costs of delivery of power while satisfying customers and imposed constraints such as voltage limits, congestion, system losses, ...
