    • FPGA-Based Lossless Data Compression Using GNU Zip 

      Rigler, Suzanne (University of Waterloo, 2007-01-23)
      Lossless data compression algorithms are widely used by data communication systems and data storage systems to reduce the amount of data transferred and stored. GNU Zip (GZIP) [1] is a popular compression utility that ...
    • FPGA-Based Testbed for Fault Injection on SHA-256 

      Jose, Najma (University of Waterloo, 2015-01-21)
      In real world applications, cryptographic algorithms are implemented in hardware or software on specific devices. An active attacker may inject faults during the computation process and careful analysis of faulty results ...
    • Fractional Imputation for Ordinal and Mixed-type Responses with Missing Observations 

      She, Xichen (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-12)
      This thesis addresses two essential aspects of large scale public-use data files involving ordinal and mixed-type responses with missing observations: (i) the creation of single complete data sets with imputation for missing ...
    • Fractional refinements of integral theorems 

      Moore, Benjamin (University of Waterloo, 2021-07-09)
      The focus of this thesis is to take theorems which deal with ``integral" objects in graph theory and consider fractional refinements of them to gain additional structure. A classic theorem of Hakimi says that for an ...
    • Fractional Stochastic Dynamics in Structural Stability Analysis 

      Deng, Jian (University of Waterloo, 2013-08-30)
      The objective of this thesis is to develop a novel methodology of fractional stochastic dynamics to study stochastic stability of viscoelastic systems under stochastic loadings. Numerous structures in civil engineering ...
    • Fractional-Reserve Banking and the Double-Title to Property Problem 

      Allison, Andrew (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-11)
      This thesis discusses the legitimacy of fractional-reserve banking under the title-transfer theory of contract. Fractional-reserve banking is the practice of banks lending out some of the money that is deposited with them. ...
    • Fractionation of non-animal protein hydrolysates for use in Chinese Hamster Ovary cell media 

      Yoo, Seung Mi (University of Waterloo, 2010-01-22)
      This thesis presents a study on the enhancement of CHO cell growth by Yeast extract, Yeastolate, and Primatone fractions obtained by dead-end ultrafiltration. The total solid, peptide contents, antioxidant capacity and ...
    • Fracture Mechanisms in Resistance Spot Weld of Magnesium Alloys 

      Niknejad, Seyedtirdad (University of Waterloo, 2015-06-19)
      The automotive industry is adopting the application of magnesium and magnesium alloys in order to produce light-weight auto-body structures. Therefore, it is essential to evaluate the load bearing capability of these metals ...
    • Fragmentation Dynamics of Triatomic Molecules in Femtosecond Laser Pulses Probed by Coulomb Explosion Imaging 

      Karimi, Reza (University of Waterloo, 2013-06-19)
      In this thesis we have utilized few-cycle pulses in the range 10-15s, to initiate CE to allow us to image the structure, dynamics, and kinetics of ionization and dissociation of triatomic molecules. We have made a series ...
    • Fragmenting the Landscape 

      Roznowski, Joanna (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-09)
      My paintings are done from my memory of nature experienced at different moments in time and place in Canada and Europe, discovered during my frequent travels. Colour, light, movement, smell and sound recalled in memory, ...
    • Fragments of Sobriquet 

      Stines, Shanne Nathaniel (University of Waterloo, 2020-01-16)
      As exposited and demonstrated through the work and studies of sociologists Pierre Bourdieu, and Gary Stevens, among others, architects have traditionally represented but a small and demographically homogenous portion of ...
    • Frailty and Health Related Outcomes in Acute Care 

      McNicholl, Tara (University of Waterloo, 2017-09-08)
      Background: Current frailty screening tools have not been validated for day-to-day use in acute care (Binder, 2015). Many recommended tools include subjective questions and take too much time to complete in a fast-paced ...
    • A Framework for Aggregation of Multiple Reinforcement Learning Algorithms 

      Jiang, Ju (University of Waterloo, 2007-04-11)
      Aggregation of multiple Reinforcement Learning (RL) algorithms is a new and effective technique to improve the quality of Sequential Decision Making (SDM). The quality of a SDM depends on long-term rewards rather than the ...
