    • Quadratic Hedging with Margin Requirements and Portfolio Constraints 

      Tazhitdinova, Alisa (University of Waterloo, 2010-04-28)
      We consider a mean-variance portfolio optimization problem, namely, a problem of minimizing the variance of the final wealth that results from trading over a fixed finite horizon in a continuous-time complete market in the ...
    • Quadratic Loss Minimization in a Regime Switching Model with Control and State Constraints 

      Ramchandani, Pradeep (University of Waterloo, 2015-04-09)
      In this thesis, we address a convex stochastic optimal control problem in mathematical finance, with the goal of minimizing a general quadratic loss function of the wealth at close of trade. We study this problem in the ...
    • A quadratic programming approach to find faces in robust nonnegative matrix factorization 

      Ananthanarayanan, Sai Mali (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-29)
      Nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF) is a popular dimensionality reduction technique because it is easily interpretable and can discern useful features. For a given matrix M (dimension n x m) whose entries are nonnegative ...
    • Quadratically Dense Matroids 

      Walsh, Zachary (University of Waterloo, 2020-07-08)
      This thesis is concerned with finding the maximum density of rank-$n$ matroids in a minor-closed class. The extremal function of a non-empty minor-closed class $\mathcal M$ of matroids which excludes a rank-2 uniform ...
    • Quadrotor Position Estimation using Low Quality Images 

      Gariepy, Ryan (University of Waterloo, 2011-09-28)
      The use of unmanned systems is becoming widespread in commercial and military sectors. The ability of these systems to take on dull, dirty, and dangerous tasks which were formerly done by humans is encouraging their rapid ...
