      Sawyer, Shaun (University of Waterloo, 2015-07-28)
      In this thesis we develop a gain-scheduled control law for the quadcopter unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Techniques from linear control theory are introduced and used to construct adaptive proportional and proportional-integral ...
    • Gaining Access at Historic Tourism Sites: A Narrative Case Study of Physical Accessibility at Glamis Castle 

      Barlow, Heather (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-07)
      Today, tourists seek authentic experiences from places they visit. For countries where the historic environment is a key component of tourism, the concept of maintaining authenticity is vital to encourage potential visitors. ...
    • Gaining Information About a Quantum Channel Via Twirling 

      Magesan, Easwar (University of Waterloo, 2008-07-31)
      Finding correctable encoding that protects against a quantum process is in general a difficult task. Two main obstacles are that an exponential number of experiments are needed to gain complete information about the quantum ...
    • Gait shape control for 2-D.O.F bipedal robots using hybrid virtual holonomic constraints 

      Al Lawati, Mohamed Ali (University of Waterloo, 2014-07-29)
      Motion control for bipedal robots is an active research area because bipedal robots can perform tasks and work in terrain where wheeled robots cannot. Researchers have developed bipedal robots that are able to walk, run ...
    • Galaxy Formation at Redshift ~0.75: A Low Mass Survey & The Role of Environment 

      Greene, Chad (University of Waterloo, 2011-09-29)
      The majority of galaxy formation studies which explore beyond local redshifts do not typically probe down to the dwarf galaxy stellar mass range of ∼ 10^9 Msun . Thus trends in the observed evolution or characteristics of ...
    • Galaxy Morphology In Cluster Environments 

      Mehmood, Harisah (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-25)
      It is a well known fact that cluster environments favour early-type galaxies over late- type. However, the physical origin of the correlation remains uncertain. We focus specifically on the external environmental mechanisms ...
    • Galaxy Transformations in the Last 5 Billion Years 

      Lu, Ting (University of Waterloo, 2010-09-01)
      It has become clear that the global star formation rate in the Universe has been decreasing since at least z~1, and blue, star-forming galaxies are transformed into red, passive galaxies through one or more processes. The ...
    • Gallo-Roman Relations under the Early Empire 

      Walsh, Ryan (University of Waterloo, 2013-08-30)
      This paper examines the changing attitudes of Gallo-Romans from the time of Caesar's conquest in the 50s BCE to the start of Vespasian's reign in 70-71 CE and how Roman prejudice shaped those attitudes. I first examine the ...
    • Galore: And Exhibition of Drawings 

      Born, Shauna (University of Waterloo, 2012-05-18)
      'Galore' is a series of drawings that celebrate the urge to reproduce and multiply ‘beauty’. Working from a collection of appropriated photographs, I have produced a suite of small-scale ballpoint pen drawings that explore ...
    • Galt Agora: Vision for a Pedestrian Fabric in the City of Cambridge 

      Dabov, Boian (University of Waterloo, 2015-02-17)
      The ongoing urban renewal occurring within the City of Cambridge, and its Galt city centre has been a long delayed process, yet it is a necessary one for the city and its inhabitants. A latent sense of disintegration within ...
    • Gambling by Ontario Casino Employees: Gambling Behaviours, Problem Gambling, and Impacts of the Employment 

      Guttentag, Daniel (University of Waterloo, 2010-04-14)
      This study investigated various aspects of the gambling engaged in by Ontario casino employees. Five casinos participated in the study, which involved a survey sample of 934 employees and an interview sample of 21 employees. ...
    • Game Design Concepts 

      Bishop, Orin (University of Waterloo, 2009)
      The term “game design” is not well defined; it is used to mean many different things which oftentimes are only peripherally related to the actual design process, and many books purportedly on the subject do not adequately ...
    • Games with Words: Textual Representation in the Wake of Graphical Realism in Videogames 

      Hancock, Michael (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-21)
      Much of the videogame industry is based around a model of technological progress, whereby developers, individual videogames, and videogame platforms are lauded as superior based on their engagement with the latest, cutting ...
    • Gamification in a Volunteered Geographic Information context with regard to contributors' motivations: A case study of OpenStreetMap 

      Chen, Chen (University of Waterloo, 2017-04-27)
      Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) describes a new type of spatial information created by the public voluntarily (Goodchild, 2007). However, many questions persist about the quality of VGI, due to a lack of knowledge ...
    • Gas permeation through water-swollen sericin / PVA membranes 

      Kim, Se Jin (University of Waterloo, 2007-06-14)
      Silk sericin, a protein obtained from cocoons, is a highly hydrophilic macromolecular material with many hydroxyl, carboxyl and amino acid groups. Sericin has been used for cosmetics, medical, polymer materials and other ...
    • Gas Separation by Poly(ether block amide) Membranes 

      Liu, Li (University of Waterloo, 2008-04-16)
      This study deals with poly(ether block amide) (PEBA) (type 2533) membranes for gas separation. A new method was developed to prepare flat thin film PEBA membranes by spontaneous spreading of a solution of the block copolymer ...
    • Gauge Theory Dynamics and Calabi-Yau Moduli 

      Doroud, Nima (University of Waterloo, 2014-07-02)
      We compute the exact partition function of two dimensional N=(2,2) supersymmetric gauge theories on S². For theories with SU(2|1)_A invariance, the partition function admits two equivalent representations corresponding to ...
    • Gaussian Interference Channels: Examining the Achievable Rate Region 

      Haghi, Ali (University of Waterloo, 2016-08-31)
      Interference is assumed to be one of the main barriers to improving the throughput of communication systems. Consequently, interference management plays an integral role in wireless communications. Although the importance ...
