      Wenzel, Stephen (University of Waterloo, 2015-02-18)
      As Toronto’s population continues to grow, the city is faced with many new challenges related to the quality of urban life. Central to overcoming these challenges is a rethinking of urban mobility. As the region’s population ...
    • The Cycle Spaces of an Infinite Graph 

      Casteels, Karel (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      The edge space of a finite graph <em>G</em> = (<em>V</em>, <em>E</em>) over a field F is simply an assignment of field elements to the edges of the graph. The edge space can equally be thought of us an |<em>E</em>|-dimensional ...
    • Cycle Time Reduction of 5-axis Laser Drilling via Time-optimal Trajectory Generation and Sequence Optimization 

      Woo, Kyongjae (University of Waterloo, 2019-04-30)
