    • Portfolio Selection Under Nonsmooth Convex Transaction Costs 

      Potaptchik, Marina (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      We consider a portfolio selection problem in the presence of transaction costs. Transaction costs on each asset are assumed to be a convex function of the amount sold or bought. This function can be nondifferentiable ...

    • Positive Affect, Mood Salience, and Intertemporal Decisions 

      Norouzi, Bahar (University of Waterloo, 2011-04-12)
      The focus of this thesis is to explore the impact of positive affective state and mood salience on intertemporal decision making. We found that positive affect significantly influence intertemporal preference. We also ...
    • Positive and Negative Analogical Transfer in Problem Solving 

      Alzayat, Ayman (University of Waterloo, 2011-09-30)
      This thesis has investigated the positive and negative analogical transfer in which we proposed three hypotheses that shed more light on the process of human behaviour in problem solving. We have found that people exhibited ...
    • Possibly, Maybe 

      Massard, Jessica (University of Waterloo, 2013-05-22)
      Possibly, Maybe is an exhibition of polychromatic, process-based objects made out of acrylic paint. Working with and against the limits of the material, the paint is systematically cast, peeled, and stretched colour by ...
    • Post Stroke Visual Midline Shift Syndrome 

      Binhilabi, Ohwod (University of Waterloo, 2018-10-01)
      Abstract Introduction The definition of an individual’s visual midline is the point which the individual perceives as being straight-ahead or “in front of their nose”. One of the perceptual consequences of a stroke for ...
    • (Post)Colonial Tectonics: reflections on relations in Indigenous spatial practice between the Beautiful Waters and Willow River

    • (Post-)Neoliberal Planning, Excessively Optimistic Developers and Overbuilding in Post-reform China: A Case Study of Ordos City 

      Su, Xing (University of Waterloo, 2021-05-18)
      Overbuilding has been a nationwide and detrimental phenomenon in 21st century China, which calls for investigations of its causes and solutions. Using a case study research strategy, and employing semi-structured interviews ...
    • Post-disaster Opportunities: An Assessment of Reconstruction Activities following the 1999 Debris Flows in Vargas State, Venezuela 

      Stager, Heather (University of Waterloo, 2009-09-30)
      Disaster impacts have grown significantly in the last half century. Additionally, in 2007 the number of urban residents surpassed that of rural populations generating a struggle for resources, inevitably leading to increased ...
    • Post-mapping Topology Rewriting for FPGA Area Minimization 

      Chen, Lei (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-26)
      Circuit designers require Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools when compiling designs into Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) in order to achieve high quality results due to the complexity of the compilation tasks involved. ...
    • Post-Oil +15: Designing an "Urban Campus" in Downtown Calgary 

      Chow, Jacqueline (University of Waterloo, 2018-02-20)

    • Post-Quantum Account Recovery for Passwordless Authentication 

      Wilson, Spencer MacLaren (University of Waterloo, 2023-04-24)
      WebAuthn is a passwordless authentication protocol which allows users to authenticate to online services using public-key cryptography. Users prove their identity based on possession of a private key, which is stored on a ...
    • A post-quantum digital signature scheme based on supersingular isogenies 

      Yoo, Youngho (University of Waterloo, 2017-09-20)
      We present the first general-purpose digital signature scheme based on supersingular elliptic curve isogenies secure against quantum adversaries in the quantum random oracle model with small key sizes. This scheme is ...
    • Post-Quantum Elliptic Curve Cryptography 

      Soukharev, Vladimir (University of Waterloo, 2016-05-16)
      We propose and develop new schemes for post-quantum cryptography based on isogenies over elliptic curves. First we show that ordinary elliptic curves are have less than exponential security against quantum computers. These ...
    • Post-Quantum Security of Authenticated Key Establishment Protocols 

      LeGrow, Jason (University of Waterloo, 2016-04-20)
