    • Questioning the Unquestioned: Scale Development to Assess Ecotourist Ethics 

      Nowaczek, Agnes Magda Kinga (University of Waterloo, 2009-04-30)
      While most ecotourist definitions and typologies have relied on concepts ingrained in traveler behaviours or destinations, none has benefited from a consideration of personal ethics. The study of ecotourism has virtually ...
    • Queueing Analysis of a Priority-based Claim Processing System 

      Ibrahim, Basil (University of Waterloo, 2009-10-02)
      We propose a situation in which a single employee is responsible for processing incoming claims to an insurance company that can be classified as being one of two possible types. More specifically, we consider a priority-based ...
    • A Queueing Model to Study Ambulance Offload Delays 

      Majedi, Mohammad (University of Waterloo, 2008-09-24)
      The ambulance offload delay problem is a well-known result of overcrowding and congestion in emergency departments. Offload delay refers to the situation where area hospitals are unable to accept patients from regional ...
    • Queueing Network Models of Ambulance Offload Delays 

      Almehdawe, Eman (University of Waterloo, 2012-09-27)
      Although healthcare operations management has been an active and popular research direction over the past few years, there is a lack of formal quantitative models to analyze the ambulance o oad delay problem. O oad delays ...
    • Quick and Automatic Selection of POMDP Implementations on Mobile Platform Based on Battery Consumption Estimation 

      Yang, Xiao (University of Waterloo, 2014-04-01)
      Partially Observable Markov Decision Process (POMDP) is widely used to model sequential decision making process under uncertainty and incomplete knowledge of the environment. It requires strong computation capability and ...
    • A Quick-and-Dirty Approach to Robustness in Linear Optimization 

      Karimi, Mehdi (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-07)
      We introduce methods for dealing with linear programming (LP) problems with uncertain data, using the notion of weighted analytic centers. Our methods are based on high interaction with the decision maker (DM) and try ...
    • QuickAssist Extensive Reading for Learners of German Using CALL Technologies 

      Wood, Peter (University of Waterloo, 2010-12-20)
      The focus of this dissertation is the development and testing of a CALL tool which assists learners of German with the extensive reading of German texts of their choice. The application provides functionality that enables ...
    • Quiet In The Rear: The Wehrmacht and the Weltanschauungskrieg in the Occupation of the Soviet Union 

      Harvey, Justin (University of Waterloo, 2018-04-26)
      Historians widely acknowledge that the Second World War witnessed a substantial degree of ideology in the conflict itself. This paper will establish the degree to which the ideology of National Socialism shaped the Wehrmacht’s ...
    • Quotient Complexities of Atoms in Regular Ideal Languages 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Davies, Sylvie (Institute of Informatics: University of Szeged, 2015)
      A (left) quotient of a language L by a word w is the language w(-1) L = {x vertical bar wx is an element of L}. The quotient complexity of a regular language L is the number of quotients of L; it is equal to the state ...
    • Quotient Complexity of Bifix-, Factor-, and Subword-Free Regular Language 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Jirásková, Galina; Baiyu, Li; Smith, Joshua (Institute of Informatics: University of Szeged, 2014)
      A language $L$ is prefix-free if whenever words $u$ and $v$ are in $L$ and $u$ is a prefix of $v$, then $u=v$. Suffix-, factor-, and subword-free languages are defined similarly, where by ``subword" we mean ``subsequence", ...
    • Quotient Complexity Of Closed Languages 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Jiraskova, Galina; Zou, Chenglong (Springer, 2014-02-01)
      A language L is prefix-closed if, whenever a word w is in L, then every prefix of w is also in L. We define suffix-, factor-, and subword-closed languages in an analogous way, where by factor we mean contiguous subsequence, ...
    • Quotient Complexity of Ideal Languages 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Jirásková, Galina; Li, Baiyu (Elsevier, 2013-01-28)
      A language L over an alphabet Σ is a right (left) ideal if it satisfies L=LΣ∗ (L=Σ∗L). It is a two-sided ideal if L=Σ∗LΣ∗, and an all-sided ideal if L=Σ∗L, the shuffle of Σ∗ with L. Ideal languages are not only of interest ...
    • Quotient Complexity Of Star-Free Languages 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Liu, Bo (World Scientific Publishing, 2012-09-01)
      The quotient complexity, also known as state complexity, of a regular language is the number of distinct left quotients of the language. The quotient complexity of an operation is the maximal quotient complexity of the ...
    • R-D Optimal Scalable Video Coding Using Soft Decision Quantization 

      Hebel, Krzysztof Michal (University of Waterloo, 2010-11-22)
      In this thesis, we study the concept of scalable video coding as implemented in the extension to the H.264 video coding standard. Specifically, for the spatial and quality scalability scenarios, we propose an optimization ...
    • R.A.M: Remote Arctic Memory 

      Manchanda, Karan (University of Waterloo, 2015-09-22)
      The modern world is defined by networks. One network, specifically, has become the core component in how our societies function; the Internet. While the Internet may seem ubiquitous, seamless, and imperceptible, it is only ...
    • R2Fix: Automatically Generating Bug Fixes from Bug Reports 

      Liu, Chen (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-08)
      Many bugs, even those that are known and documented in bug reports, remain in mature software for a long time due to the lack of the development resources to fix them. We propose a general approach, R2Fix, to automatically ...
    • Ra-228, Ra-226, Ra-224 and Ra-223 in potential sources and sinks of land-derived material in the German Bight of the North Sea: implications for the use of radium as a tracer 

      Schmidt, Caroline; Hanfland, Claudia; Regnier, Pierre; Van Cappellen, Philippe; Schlüter, Michael; Knauthe, Ulrich; Stimac, Ingrid; Geibert, Walter (Springer, 2011-08-01)
      Activities of the naturally occurring radium nuclides Ra-228, Ra-226, Ra-224 and Ra-223 were determined in waters of the open German Bight and adjacent nearshore areas in the North Sea, in order to explore the potential ...
    • RADARSAT-2 Polarimetric Radar Imaging for Lake Ice Mapping 

      Pan, Feng (University of Waterloo, 2017-11-21)
      Changes in lake ice dates and duration are useful indicators for assessing long-term climate trends and variability in northern countries. Lake ice cover observations are also a valuable data source for predictions with ...
    • Radial Movement of a Passively Released Gas from a Monitoring Well 

      Naas, Claudia (University of Waterloo, 2009-09-01)
      In order to preserve groundwater as a viable source of drinking water, remedial measures must be applied where appropriate. The application of the various remedial technologies is site and contaminant dependent. Differing ...
    • Radial-Growth Forecasting and the Implications for Planning and Management in the Grand River Watershed of Ontario, Canada 

      Selig, Nigel (University of Waterloo, 2009-04-26)
      The first objective of this thesis was to predict the future success of selected tree species under low (B1, 550 CO2 ppm) and moderate (A1B, 720 CO2 ppm) climate change scenarios as defined in the Special Report on Emissions ...
