    • 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)
      In the first part of this thesis, we will explore an iterative procedure to determine the detailed asymptotic behaviour of solutions of a certain class of nonlinear vector differential equations which approach a nonlinear ...
    • Dynamics and Control of a Piano Action Mechanism 

      Izadbakhsh, Adel (University of Waterloo, 2007-06-21)
      The piano action is the mechanism that transforms the finger force applied to a key into the motion of a hammer that strikes a piano string. This thesis focuses on improving the fidelity of the dynamic model of a grand ...
    • Dynamics and Inhibition of Class II Fructose 1,6-bisphosphate Aldolase 

      Labbe, Genevieve (University of Waterloo, 2009-04-24)
      It has been suggested for many decades that the essential and ubiquitous enzyme fructose 1,6-bisphosphate aldolase (FBA) could be a good drug target against bacteria and fungi, since lower organisms possess a metal-dependent ...
    • Dynamics and Model-Based Control of Electric Power Steering Systems 

      Mehrabi, Naser (University of Waterloo, 2014-10-03)
      Many automobile manufacturers are switching to Electric Power Steering (EPS) systems for their better performance and cost advantages over traditional Hydraulic Power Steering (HPS) systems. EPS compared to HPS offer lower ...
    • Dynamics and Model-Predictive Anti-Jerk Control of Connected Electric Vehicles 

      Batra, Mohit (University of Waterloo, 2018-02-14)
      Electric Vehicles (EVs) develop high torque at low speeds, resulting in a high rate of acceleration. However, the rapid rise in torque of an electric motor creates undesired torsional oscillations, with vehicle jerk arising ...
    • Dynamics of a Three_Wheel Vehicle with Tadpole Design 

      Zandieh, Azadeh (University of Waterloo, 2015-01-15)
      This study investigates the effect of applying camber angle on the handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort of a three-wheeled vehicle, which has two wheels in the front and one in the back, known as a tadpole design. ...
    • The Dynamics of Carbon and Nitrogen Stable Isotope Analysis of Aquatic Organisms within the Grand River Watershed 

      Loomer, Heather Anne (University of Waterloo, 2009-01-28)
      Stable isotope analysis is a tool employed in ecological studies to provide information on the movement of elements and energy through a system. The stable carbon and nitrogen isotope analysis of aquatic organisms has been ...
    • Dynamics of Gyroelastic Continua 

      Hassanpour, Soroosh (University of Waterloo, 2014-03-07)
      This work is concerned with the theoretical development of dynamic equations for gyroelastic systems which are dynamic systems with four basic types of continuous mechanical influences, i.e. inertia, elasticity, damping, ...
    • The Dynamics of Inhomogeneous Cosmologies 

      Lim, Woei Chet (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      In this thesis we investigate cosmological models more general than the isotropic and homogeneous Friedmann-Lemaître models. We focus on cosmologies with one spatial degree of freedom, whose matter content ...
    • Dynamics of Nanoparticles Assembly at the Interface of a Nematic Liquid Crystal Droplet 

      Yining, Han (University of Waterloo, 2015-09-30)
      Up-to-date technological applications of liquid crystal (LC)-based devices have relied on the nematic LC materials in the form of drops or emulsions stabilized by surfactants. Adsorption of nanoparticles at liquid interfaces ...
    • Dynamics of Parent-Child Relationships and Conflict in Chinese, Eastern European and European Canadian Families 

      Marinova-Anguelova, Dessislava (University of Waterloo, 2008-08-11)
      In my thesis, I studied patterns of associations between the quality of parent-child relations and components of parent-child conflict in families with preadolescent children from European Canadian families, as well as ...
    • Dynamics of polymer thin films and surfaces 

      Fakhraai, Zahra (University of Waterloo, 2007-05-18)
      The dynamics of thin polymer films display many differences from the bulk dynamics. Different modes of motions in polymers are affected by confinement in different ways. The enhancement in the dynamics of some modes of ...
    • Dynamics of Quantum Information of the Central Spin Problem 

      Niknam, Mohamad (University of Waterloo, 2018-01-17)
      Environmental effects on the evolution of a spin system in the context of the central spin problem, have been studied for more than 60 years. With the growing complexity of quantum information processors there is a new ...
    • The Dynamics of the Beaufort Gyre 

      Webb, Elizabeth (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-23)
      The Beaufort gyre is located in the Canadian Arctic basin and is responsible for the dominant circulation of the Beaufort Sea. Currently, the gyre flows in an anti-cyclonic direction, which leads to the deflection of fresh ...
    • Dysphoria and facial emotion recognition: Examining the role of rumination 

      Duong, David (University of Waterloo, 2012-12-12)
      Rumination has been shown to be an influential part of the depressive experience, impacting on various cognitive processes including memory and attention. However, there is a dearth of studies examining the relationship ...
    • Dystopian Present and Future: The Temporal Orientation of Evgenii Zamiatin’s We and Andrei Platonov’s The Foundation Pit 

      Springate, Laura (University of Waterloo, 2009-09-03)
      A recent genre study by Erika Gottlieb (2001) divides dystopian literature into two temporal categories, which she calls West and East. Within this framework, Gottlieb places Evgenii Zamiatin’s We (1921) within her Western ...
    • E-beam Lithography using Dry Powder HSQ Resist Having Long Shelf Life and Nanogap Electrode Fabrication 

      Jiashi, Shen (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-28)
