      Surveying my through a feminist approach to autotheory, Pacing the House is an exhibition that uses material inquiry to reframe personal trauma into a site of investigation. By creating systems of organization—categorizing, ...
    • 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 François-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 ...
    • Pagan Community Online: Social Media Affordances and Limitations in Religio-Political Sociality 

      Pittman, Kagan (University of Waterloo, 2022-01-18)
      Ultra-conservative and social justice politics in North America have imbued political meaning into ideas of race and religion. Norse Pagans (i.e., Heathens) are factionalizing and contesting the significances of race and ...
    • 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 ...
    • The Pair Cache Problem 

      Khodaee, SayedMohammadAmin (University of Waterloo, 2023-09-25)
      This thesis investigates the pair cache problem, a unique variation of the classic cache replacement problem where each element is stored in two pages, and the cache only needs one of these pages to respond to a query. The ...
    • 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 ...
    • Paleo-Ice Sheet and Deglacial History of the Southwestern Great Slave Lake Area 

      Hagedorn, Grant William (University of Waterloo, 2022-01-28)
      The western Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) is known to have experienced complex ice-flow shifts during the last glaciation due to ice divide migration and increasing topographic influence during deglaciation. Several glacial ...
    • 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 ...
    • Paleohydrology of the Wabasca River and relations with past flood regimes at the downstream Peace-Athabasca Delta 

      Girard, Caleb (University of Waterloo, 2022-08-22)
      The Peace-Athabasca Delta (PAD; northern Alberta) is internationally recognized for its ecological, historical, and cultural significance, yet controversy persists over the roles of hydroelectric regulation of Peace River ...
    • 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 ...
