    • Symbolic Integration of Multibody System Dynamics with Finite Element Method 

      LIANG, YITENG (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-06)
      A general procedure integrating the finite element method with multibody system dynamics using symbolic computation is presented. It takes advantage of both the nodal formulation and the graph-theoretical approach, so it ...
    • Symbolic Modelling and Simulation of Wheeled Vehicle Systems on Three-Dimensional Roads 

      Bombardier, William (University of Waterloo, 2009-10-26)
      In recent years, there has been a push by automotive manufacturers to improve the efficiency of the vehicle development process. This can be accomplished by creating a computationally efficient vehicle model that has the ...
    • Symmetric Extendability of Quantum States and the Extreme Limits of Quantum Key Distribution 

      Khatri, Sumeet (University of Waterloo, 2016-10-13)
      We investigate QKD protocols with two-way classical post-processing that are based on the well-known six-state and BB84 signal states. In these QKD protocols, the source (Alice) sends quantum signals to the receiver (Bob), ...
    • A Symmetric Interaction Model for Bimanual Input 

      Latulipe, Celine (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      People use both their hands together cooperatively in many everyday activities. The modern computer interface fails to take advantage of this basic human ability, with the exception of the keyboard. However, the keyboard ...
    • Symmetrically-Normed Ideals and Characterizations of Absolutely Norming Operators 

      Pandey, Satish Kumar (University of Waterloo, 2018-08-23)
      The primary objective of this thesis is two fold: first, it is devoted to the study of absolutely norming operators (with respect to various arbitrary symmetric norms on $\mathcal{B}(\mathcal{H})$) with an eye towards the ...
    • Symmetries 

      Foldes, Stephane (University of Waterloo, 2016-10-03)
      Automorphisms of graphs, hypergraphs and disgraphs are investigated. The invariance of the chromatic polynomial in the rotor effect is disproved. New invariance results are obtained. It is shown that given any integer k ...
    • Symmetry Induction in Computational Intelligence 

      Ventresca, Mario (University of Waterloo, 2009-11-06)
      Symmetry has been a very useful tool to researchers in various scientific fields. At its most basic, symmetry refers to the invariance of an object to some transformation, or set of transformations. Usually one searches ...
    • Symmetry Reduction and Compositional Verification on Timed Automata 

      Nguyen, Hoang Linh (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-24)
      This thesis is about techniques for the analysis of concurrent and real-time systems. As the first contribution, we describe a technique that incorporates automatic symmetry detection and symmetry reduction in the ...
    • Symmetry, Asymmetry and Quantum Information 

      Marvian Mashhad, Iman (University of Waterloo, 2012-09-28)
      It is impossible to overstate the importance of symmetry in physics and mathematics. Symmetry arguments play a central role in a broad range of problems from simplifying a system of linear equations to a deep role in ...
    • Sympathetic Imagination: Posthumanist Thought in Electronic Literature and Games 

      Aardse, Kent (University of Waterloo, 2016-02-19)
      Martha Nussbaum insists on the power of “sympathetic imagining” for considering the lives of nonhuman animals. Literature, for Nussbaum, is a powerful site for imaging the lives of animals. This study extends Nussbaum’s ...
    • Sympathetic Landscapes: an aesthetics for the Leslie Street Spit 

      Chan, Alexander (University of Waterloo, 2014-01-24)
      The Leslie Street Spit is a five kilometre rubble breakwater on the eastern waterfront of Toronto. Built during the mid-twentieth-century as an infrastructural add-on to the existing Port Lands Industrial District, the ...
    • Synanthropic Suburbia 

      Gunawan, Sarah (University of Waterloo, 2015-09-30)
      Animals are invading the city. Coyotes are sighted on downtown streets with greater frequency, raccoons notoriously forage through greenbins as their primary source of food, and all forms of animals inhabit the surfaces, ...
    • Synchronization in Heterogeneous Networks of Hippocampal Interneurons 

      Bazzazi, Hojjat (University of Waterloo, 2005)
      The hippocampus is one of the most intensely studied brain structures and the oscillatory activity of the hippocampal neurons is believed to be involved in learning and memory consolidation. Therefore, studying rhythm ...
    • Synchronized closed-path following for a mobile robot and an Euler-Lagrange system 

      Li, Yuqian (University of Waterloo, 2013-09-20)
      We propose and solve a synchronized path following problem for a differential drive robot modeled as a dynamic unicycle and an Euler-Lagrange system. Each system is assigned a simple closed curve in its output space. The ...
    • Synergistic pH effect for reversible shuttling aptamer-based biosensors between graphene oxide and target molecules 

      Huang, Po-Jung Jimmy; Kempaiah, Ravindra; Liu, Juewen (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011-06-07)
      DNA aptamers are known to desorb from graphene oxide (GO) surface in the presence of target molecules. We demonstrate herein that the binding equilibrium can be shifted by simply tuning the solution pH. At lower pH, the ...
    • Syntactic Complexities of Nine Subclasses of Regular Languages 

      Li, Baiyu (University of Waterloo, 2012-07-31)
      The syntactic complexity of a regular language is the cardinality of its syntactic semigroup. The syntactic complexity of a subclass of the class of regular languages is the maximal syntactic complexity of languages in ...
    • Syntactic Complexities of Six Classes of Star-Free Languages 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Li, Baiyu; Liu, David (Otto-von-Guericke-Universit¨at Magdeburg, 2012)
      The syntactic complexity of a regular language is the cardinality of its syntactic semi-group. The syntactic complexity of a subclass of regular languages is the maximal syntactic complexity of languages in that subclass, ...
    • Syntactic Complexities of Some Classes of Star-Free Languages 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Li, Baiyu (Springer, 2012)

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Li, Baiyu (World Scientific Publishing, 2014-11-01)
      The syntactic complexity of a subclass of the class of regular languages is the maximal cardinality of syntactic semigroups of languages in that class, taken as a function of the state complexity n of these languages. We ...
