    • A PAC-Theory of Clustering with Advice 

      Zokaei Ashtiani, Mohammad (University of Waterloo, 2018-05-17)
      In the absence of domain knowledge, clustering is usually an under-specified task. For any clustering application, one can choose among a variety of different clustering algorithms, along with different preprocessing ...
    • Packaging and Characterization of a NbTiN Superconducting Nanowire for the Design of an Optimal Nanowire Meander Structure 

      Scotland, Antonio (University of Waterloo, 2013-04-23)
      The Superconducting Nanowire single-photon detector (SNSPD) made with niobium-titanium nitride (NbTiN) thin films fabricated on oxidized silicon substrates are highly promising nanodevices. The SNSPD is an immensely capable ...
    • Packaging and Characterization of NbN Superconducting Nanowire Single Photon Detectors 

      Orgiazzi, Jean-Luc Francois-Xavier (University of Waterloo, 2009-05-22)
      Superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) are nanodevices usually made from thin niobium nitride (NbN) films. Operated at liquid helium temperature, they can exhibit high detection efficiency with low ...
    • Packing and Covering Odd (u,v)-trails in a Graph 

      Ibrahimpur, Sharat (University of Waterloo, 2016-09-27)
      In this thesis, we investigate the problem of packing and covering odd $(u,v)$-trails in a graph. A $(u,v)$-trail is a $(u,v)$-walk that is allowed to have repeated vertices but no repeated edges. We call a trail \emph{odd} ...
    • Packing Directed Joins 

      Williams, Aaron (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      Edmonds and Giles conjectured that the maximum number of directed joins in a packing is equal to the minimum weight of a directed cut, for any weighted directed graph. This is a generalization of Woodall's Conjecture ...
    • Packing Unit Disks 

      Lafreniere, Benjamin J. (University of Waterloo, 2008-08-27)
      Given a set of unit disks in the plane with union area A, what fraction of A can be covered by selecting a pairwise disjoint subset of the disks? Richard Rado conjectured 1/4 and proved 1/4.41. In this thesis, we consider ...
    • Packing: An Architect's Guide 

      Lacalamita, Andrea (University of Waterloo, 2011-08-19)
      A study of packing constructs a critique of the everyday: a dialogue between chaos and order, surface and area, interior and exterior, gravity and lightness. In search of tangible expression of the spatial processes I ...
    • Pain Management within the Long-term Care Setting: An Inquiry into Staff-perceived Contemporary Pain Management Practices 

      Weber, Haley (University of Waterloo, 2014-05-06)
      Background: Chronic pain is a frequent and undertreated ailment within the long-term care community (Herman et al, 2009). The likelihood of experiencing pain increases with age and failure to treat this condition may ...
    • Pairing Generation for Airline Crew Scheduling 

      Bayer, Daniel Andreas (University of Waterloo, 2012-08-30)
      Airline planning is a complex and difficult process. The biggest airlines in the world plan for and operate fleets of over 700 aircraft using tens of thousands of crew members. As such, small percentages in savings translate ...
    • Pairs Trading Based on Costationarity 

      Au, Alvin (University of Waterloo, 2015-09-25)
      Arbitrage is a widely sought after phenomenon in financial markets: profit without any risk is very desirable. Statistical arbitrage is a related concept: the idea is to take advantage of market inefficiencies using ...
    • Pairwise balanced designs and related codes 

      Ling, Chi H. A. (University of Waterloo, 1997)
    • Paleoevolution of Pore Fluids in Glaciated Geologic Settings 

      Normani, Stefano Delfino (University of Waterloo, 2009-06-17)
      Nuclear power generation is being regarded as a solution to ever increasing demand for electricity, and concerns over global warming and climate change due to the use of fossil fuels. Although nuclear power generation is ...
    • Paleoglaciological dynamics in northern Manitoba and the subglacial bed mosaic 

      Trommelen, Michelle Suzanne (University of Waterloo, 2013-06-24)
      During the last glacial maximum (LGM), some 20 ka ago, northern Manitoba was situated beneath 3 to 4.5 km of ice, on the outer fringe of a major ice spreading center of the Laurentide Ice Sheet. The region has also been ...
    • Paleolimnological evidence of the effects of recent cultural eutrophication and climatic variability during the last 300 years in Lake Malawi, East Africa 

      Puchniak, Megan (University of Waterloo, 2005)
      Lake Malawi is the second largest lake in Africa, supporting diverse populations of endemic cichlids and supplying essential water resources to Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania. However, population growth, rapid deforestation ...
    • Paleozoic evolution of western Marie Byrd Land, Antarctica 

      Yakymchuk, Chris; Brown, Caitlin R.; Brown, Michael; Siddoway, Christine S.; Fanning, Christopher Mark; Korhonen, Fawna J. (Geological Society of America, 2015-09-01)
      We report geochemical data from (meta-) sedimentary and igneous rocks that crop out in the Ford Ranges of western Marie Byrd Land and discuss the evolution and reworking of the crust in this region during Paleozoic subduction ...
    • Paleozoic transpressional tectonics in the Beishan orogenic collage, Northwest China: Evolution of the Hongliuhe suture zone 

      Cleven, Nathan (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-21)
      The Beishan orogenic collage is a southern, central subset of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt, in Northwest China. It is an accretionary orogen that was active during the early Paleozoic, transitioning to convergent ...
    • Palladium Nanoparticles Loaded on Carbon Modified TiO2 Nanobelts for Enhanced Methanol Electrooxidation 

      Liang, Robert; Hu, Anming; Persic, John; Zhou, Y. Norman (Springer, 2013-09-12)
      Carbon modified TiO2 nanobelts (TiO2-C) were synthesized using a hydrothermal growth method, as a support material for palladium (Pd) nanoparticles (Pd/TiO2-C) to improve the electrocatalytic performance for methanol ...
    • Palmprint Identification Based on Generalization of IrisCode 

      Kong, Adams (University of Waterloo, 2007-01-24)
      The development of accurate and reliable security systems is a matter of wide interest, and in this context biometrics is seen as a highly effective automatic mechanism for personal identification. Among biometric technologies, ...
    • Panic Detection in Human Crowds using Sparse Coding 

      Kumar, Abhishek (University of Waterloo, 2012-08-29)
      Recently, the surveillance of human activities has drawn a lot of attention from the research community and the camera based surveillance is being tried with the aid of computers. Cameras are being used extensively for ...
    • Paradigm Shift: Does River Metabolism Mask the Isotopic Signal of Nitrate Sources? 

      Sine, Sarah Elizabeth (University of Waterloo, 2017-05-19)
      Nitrate (NO₃⁻) is the most ubiquitous contaminant in surface and groundwaters in Canada. Synthetic fertilizer application and manure production in intensive agricultural areas contribute large quantities of NO₃⁻ to the ...
