    • Hack: Reclaiming the Commons 

      Schellingerhoudt, David Michael (University of Waterloo, 2013-05-03)
      Architecture is an act of agency, and a technology that can be learned by anyone for their own purpose. It evolved as a system of organization and a protective shell for our fragile bodies, a vast, complex technology that ...
    • Hadez, a Framework for the Specification and Verification of Hypermedia Applications 

      Morales-Germán, Daniel (University of Waterloo, 2000)
      In recent years, several methodologies for the development of hypermedia applications have been proposed. These methodologies are, primarily, guidelines to be followed during the design process. They also indicate what ...
    • Hair cortisol concentration as a predictor of quality of life among children with mental disorder 

      Buchan, Marisa Claire (University of Waterloo, 2019-04-08)
      Children living with mental disorder are at risk for lower health-related quality of life (HRQoL) than their healthy peers. Although hair cortisol concentration (HCC) is found to be elevated among individuals subjected to ...
    • Halfway to Halfspace Testing 

      Harms, Nathaniel (University of Waterloo, 2017-10-18)
      In this thesis I study the problem of testing halfspaces under arbitrary probability distributions, using only random samples. A halfspace, or linear threshold function, is a boolean function f : Rⁿ → {±1} defined as the ...
    • Hall Resistance Characterization of Thermoelectric Materials; Subgap Leakage Measurement of Josephson Junctions 

      Zou, Tianze (University of Waterloo, 2020-06-01)
      The thesis has two parts. The first part is the Hall measurement of thermoelectric materials which are promising energy sources in the future. By characterizing the Hall resistance at different environments, their charge ...
    • Halocline mixing due to heavy rainfall in the cenote's of the Yucatan Peninsula 

      Coutino, Aaron (University of Waterloo, 2016-08-23)
      The hydrodynamics of the Yucatan peninsula are extremely important due to the strain on water resources caused by increasing development along the eastern coast. The geology of the peninsula is unique geologically in that ...
    • Hamilton Paths in Generalized Petersen Graphs 

      Pensaert, William (University of Waterloo, 2002)
      This thesis puts forward the conjecture that for <i>n</i> > 3<i>k</i> with <i>k</i> > 2, the generalized Petersen graph, <i>GP</i>(<i>n,k</i>) is Hamilton-laceable if <i>n</i> is even and <i>k</i> is odd, and it is ...
    • Hand preference after stroke: The development and initial evaluation of a new performance-based measure 

      Brown, Emily (University of Waterloo, 2011-04-21)
      Functional recovery of the upper limb after stroke is influenced by many factors, one being amount of affected arm and hand use following stroke. In the healthy population, amount of hand use is influenced by degree of ...
    • Hannah More and Cheap Repository Tracts; Lessons in "Religious and Useful Knowledge" 

      Paprocki, Laura Kelly (University of Waterloo, 2010-09-02)
      My thesis will discuss British Romantic period author and philanthropist Hannah More. I aim to portray her from a perspective that demonstrates her compelling and varying nature, that includes religion and rhetoric as ...
    • Hants County, 45º6’10”N 63º44’2”W 

      Rossiter, Patrick (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-22)
      How can regionalism and modern building practices synthesize to develop a localized building culture? While regionally conscientious modern architecture demands efficiency, sustainable resource equilibrium may be the ...
    • Haptic Training Simulator for Pedicle Screw Insertion in Scoliosis Surgery 

      Moafimadani, Seyedehmaryam (University of Waterloo, 2015-02-20)
