    • Option Pricing and Hedging Analysis under Regime-switching Models 

      Qiu, Chao (University of Waterloo, 2013-04-23)
      This thesis explores option pricing and hedging in a discrete time regime-switching environment. If the regime risk cannot be hedged away, then we cannot ignore this risk and use the Black-Scholes pricing and hedging ...
    • Option Pricing under Regime Switching (Analytical, PDE, and FFT Methods) 

      Akhavein Sohrabi, Mohammad Yousef (University of Waterloo, 2011-05-19)
      Although globally used in option pricing, the Black-Scholes model has not been able to reflect the evolution of stocks in the real world. A regime-switching model which allows jumps in the underlying asset prices and the ...
    • Optoelectronic Properties and Applications of 3-D Hybrid a-Si:H/ZnO Nanowire Structures 

      Iheanacho, Bright (University of Waterloo, 2017-09-08)
      This Ph.D. dissertation presents the study and development of optoelectronic properties of 3-D hybrid zinc oxide nanowire (ZnO NW) and hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) core-shell structures and a demonstration of ...
    • An Optokinetic Nystagmus Detection Method for Use With Young Children 

      Sangi, Mehrdad; Thompson, Benjamin; Turuwhenua, Jason (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2015-03-05)
      The detection of vision problems in early childhood can prevent neurodevelopmental disorders such as amblyopia. However, accurate clinical assessment of visual function in young children is challenging. optokinetic nystagmus ...
    • An Ordered Bag Semantics for SQL 

      Chinaei, Hamid R. (University of Waterloo, 2007-05-22)
      Semantic query optimization is an important issue in many contexts of databases including information integration, view maintenance and data warehousing and can substantially improve performance, especially in today's ...
    • Ordered Interval Routing Schemes 

      Ahmed, Mustaq (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      An <i>Interval Routing Scheme (IRS)</i> represents the routing tables in a network in a space-efficient way by labeling each vertex with an unique integer address and the outgoing edges at each vertex with disjoint ...
    • Ordered Micro-/Nanostructure Based Humidity Sensor for Fuel Cell Application 

      Wang, Yun (University of Waterloo, 2010-09-30)
      Humidity sensors are one of the most widely used sensors in commercial and industrial applications for environmental monitoring and controlling. Although related technology have been studied intensively, humidity sensing ...
    • Ordering and Reverse Ordering Mechanisms of Triblock Copolymers in the Presence of Solvent 

      Thompson, Russell B.; Rasmussen, Kim; Maniadis, Panagiotis; Kober, Edward M. (MDPI, 2009-02-27)
      Self-consistent field theory is used to study the self-assembly of a triblock copolymer melt. Two different external factors (temperature and solvent) are shown to affect the self-assembly. Either one or two-step self-assembly ...
    • Ordering, Indexing, and Searching Semantic Data: A Terminology Aware Index Structure 

      Pound, Jeffrey (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-16)
      Indexing data for efficient search capabilities is a core problem in many domains of computer science. As applications centered around semantic data sources become more common, the need for more sophisticated indexing ...
    • The Ordinal Serial Encoding Model: Serial Memory in Spiking Neurons 

      Choo, Feng-Xuan (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-26)
      In a world dominated by temporal order, memory capable of processing, encoding and subsequently recalling ordered information is very important. Over the decades this memory, known as serial memory, has been extensively ...
