• #### 2-Aminopurine-modified DNA homopolymers for robust and sensitive detection of mercury and silver ﻿

(Elsevier, 2017-01-15)
Heavy metal detection is a key topic in analytical chemistry. DNA-based metal recognition has advanced significantly producing many specific metal ligands, such as thymine for Hg2+ and cytosine for Ag+. For practical ...
• #### A 2-Approximation for the Height of Maximal Outerplanar Graph Drawings ﻿

(University of Waterloo, 2016-08-18)
In this thesis, we study drawings of maximal outerplanar graphs that place vertices on integer coordinates. We introduce a new class of graphs, called umbrellas, and a new method of splitting maximal outerplanar graphs ...
• #### 2-crossing critical graphs with a V8 minor ﻿

(University of Waterloo, 2012-01-17)
The crossing number of a graph is the minimum number of pairwise crossings of edges among all planar drawings of the graph. A graph G is k-crossing critical if it has crossing number k and any proper subgraph of G has a ...
• #### 2-Semilattices: Residual Properties and Applications to the Constraint Satisfaction Problem ﻿

(University of Waterloo, 2017-08-22)
Semilattices are algebras known to have an important connection to partially ordered sets. In particular, if a partially ordered set $(A,\leq)$ has greatest lower bounds, a semilattice $(A;\wedge)$ can be associated to the ...
• #### The 2006 Russia-Ukraine Natural Gas Dispute: A mechanisms based approach ﻿

(University of Waterloo, 2009-08-26)
This thesis addresses the factors which lead the Russian government to increase natural gas prices for Ukraine in 2006. Through the use of methodological individualism, an explanation which links system, state, and ...
• #### The 2009 H1N1 Health Sector Pandemic Response in Remote and Isolated First Nation Communities of Sub-Arctic Ontario, Canada ﻿

(University of Waterloo, 2011-05-26)
On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization declared a global influenza pandemic due to a novel influenza A virus subtype of H1N1. Public health emergencies, such as an influenza pandemic, can potentially impact ...
• #### 27 Stories ﻿

(University of Waterloo, 2010-05-20)
Invisible Cities is Italo Calvino’s description, in fifty-five stories of fifty-five cities, of the travels of Marco Polo. Each city is fictitious, but collectively they make up Marco Polo’s Venice. A city is distinct; ...
• #### 2D Digital Filter Implementation on a FPGA ﻿

(University of Waterloo, 2011-08-31)
The use of two dimensional (2D) digital filters for real-time 2D data processing has found important practical applications in many areas, such as aerial surveillance, satellite imaging and pattern recognition. In the ...
• #### 3-D Reconstruction from Single Projections, with Applications to Astronomical Images ﻿

(University of Waterloo, 2013-08-23)
A variety of techniques exist for three-dimensional reconstruction when multiple views are available, but less attention has been given to reconstruction when only a single view is available. Such a situation is normal in ...
• #### 3-Phenylpyrazino[1,2-a]indol-1(2H)-ones as dual cholinesterase and amyloid aggregation inhibitors ﻿

(University of Waterloo, 2017-05-10)
The year 2017, marks the 110th anniversary of the discovery of Alzheimer’s disease (AD)- a devastating neurodegenerative disease. Regardless of the significant advances made in the past century on the pathology of AD, the ...
• #### 36 Stratagems Towards a People's Modernity ﻿

(University of Waterloo, 2009-09-17)
The design thesis is sited along the Shanghai Bund in China. It pursues an alternative modernity that is quintessentially Chinese by developing a design approach specific to the local imperatives and the contextual condition. ...
• #### The 38th Parallel: Penetrating the Line ﻿

(University of Waterloo, 2007-09-20)
In July 1953, the armistice ended the Korean War that lasted for three years and established the Demilitarized Zone on either side of the demarcation line as a buffer between the two countries to prevent further military ...
• #### 3D bioprinting of liver-mimetic construct with alginate/cellulose nanocrystal hybrid bioink ﻿

(Elsevier, 2018-03-01)
3D bioprinting is a novel platform for engineering complex, three-dimensional (3D) tissues that mimic real ones. The development of hybrid bioinks is a viable strategy that integrates the desirable properties of the ...
• #### A 3D ellipsoidal volumetric foot–ground contact model for forward dynamics ﻿

(Springer, 2018-04-01)
Foot–ground contact models are an important part of forward dynamic biomechanic models, particularly those used to model gait, and have many challenges associated with them. Contact models can dramatically increase the ...
