    • A Dynamic Risk-Based Access Control Approach: Model and Implementation 

      Savinov, Sergey (University of Waterloo, 2017-05-18)
      Access control (AC) refers to mechanisms and policies that restrict access to resources, thus regulating access to physical or virtual resources of an information system. AC approaches are used to represent these mechanisms ...

      Karyakin, Alexey (University of Waterloo, 2011-09-30)
      For a database system used in pay-per-use cloud environments, elastic scaling becomes an essential feature, allowing for minimizing costs while accommodating fluctuations of load. One approach to scalability involves ...
    • Dynamic Scheduling and Control of MEA Absorption Processes for CO2 Capture Using gProms 

      Ahmad, Farhan (University of Waterloo, 2019-07-03)
      There are three general approaches for the mitigation of carbon emissions from fossil fuel fired power plants; pre-combustion, oxyfuel and post-combustion carbon capture. The post-combustion absorption process using MEA ...
    • A Dynamic Scratchpad Memory Unit for Predictable Real-Time Embedded Systems 

      Wasly, Saud (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-17)
      Scratch-pad memory is a popular alternative to caches in real-time embedded systems due to its advantages in terms of timing predictability and power consumption. However, dynamic management of scratch-pad content is ...
    • Dynamic Security Orchestration System Leveraging Machine Learning 

      Jalalpour, Elaheh (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-20)
      A Content Delivery Network (CDN) employs edge-servers caching content close to end-users to provide high Quality of Service (QoS) in serving digital content. Attacks against edge-servers are known to cause QoS degradation ...
    • Dynamic Simulation of MEA Absorption Process for CO2 Capture from Power Plants 

      Harun, Noorlisa (University of Waterloo, 2012-02-21)
      A dynamic MEA absorption process model has been developed to study the operability of this process in a dynamic fashion and to develop a control strategy to maintain the operation of the MEA scrubbing CO2 capture process ...
    • Dynamic Storage Provisioning with SLO Guarantees 

      Gaharwar, Prashant (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-25)
      Static provisioning of storage resources may lead to over-provisioning of resources, which increases costs, or under-provisioning, which runs the risk of violating application-level QoS goals. Toward this end, virtualization ...
    • Dynamic Surface Tension as a Probe of Irreversible Adsorption of Nanoparticles at Fluid-Fluid Interfaces 

      Bizmark, Navid (University of Waterloo, 2013-04-26)
      Adsorption-mediated self-assembly of nanoparticles at fluid interfaces, driven by reduction in interfacial energy, leads to stabilization of emulsions and foams and can be used for the bottom-up fabrication of functional ...
    • Dynamic Time-Stable Geocast Routing in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks 

      Rahbar, Hamidreza (University of Waterloo, 2010-01-22)
      Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) have emerged as an area of interest for both industry and research scholars because they have become an essential part of intelligent transportation systems (ITSs). Many applications in ...
    • A Dynamic User-Centric Mobile Context Model 

      Chang, Yu-Ling (University of Waterloo, 2010-07-22)
      Context-aware systems can dynamically adapt to user situations to provide smarter services. In general, context refers to the information that can be used to characterize these situations, and context models are deployed ...
    • DYNAMIC VISUALIZATIONS: Developing a Framework for Crowd-Based Simulations 

      Liu, Ao (Leo) (University of Waterloo, 2020-01-21)
      Since its conception in the 1960s, digital computation has experienced both exponential growth in power and reduction in cost. This has allowed the production of relatively cheap electronics, which are now integrated ...
    • A Dynamic Vocabulary Speech Recognizer Using Real-Time, Associative-Based Learning 

      Purdy, Trevor (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      Conventional speech recognizers employ a training phase during which many of their parameters are configured - including vocabulary selection, feature selection, and decision mechanism tailoring to these selections. After ...
    • Dynamic Weighing of Non-Singulated Objects Using a Grid of Decoupled Platforms 

      Maassarani, Bilal (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-20)
      Weighing systems exist in various sizes and forms to meet the persistent demand for measuring the mass of objects. Current solutions do not offer a system that can dynamically weigh packages moving in a non-singulated and ...
    • Dynamic Weight Estimation of Non-Singulated Objects 

      Sayeed, Ayeda (University of Waterloo, 2018-08-21)
      Weight estimation is a common practice throughout many industries, though it typically requires that the objects to be weighed remain motionless. More often than not, it is beneficial to allow objects to move freely through ...
    • Dynamical Properties of Dark Matter Halo Mergers 

      Berrouet, Anael (University of Waterloo, 2015-09-29)
      This thesis examines the nature of mixing and heating during the merging of single, isolated dark matter halos, as well as a short discussion of the statistical nature of repeated mergers in a cosmological setting. A small ...
    • Dynamical Systems in Spiking Neuromorphic Hardware 

      Voelker, Aaron Russell (University of Waterloo, 2019-05-10)
      Dynamical systems are universal computers. They can perceive stimuli, remember, learn from feedback, plan sequences of actions, and coordinate complex behavioural responses. The Neural Engineering Framework (NEF) provides ...
    • Dynamical Systems Methods Applied to the Michaelis-Menten and Lindemann Mechanisms 

      Calder, Matthew Stephen (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-06)

    • Dynamics and Control of a Piano Action Mechanism 

      Izadbakhsh, Adel (University of Waterloo, 2007-06-21)
