    • Just-In-Time Push Prefetching: Accelerating the Mobile Web 

      Armstrong, Nicholas Daniel Robert (University of Waterloo, 2011-09-19)
      Web pages take noticeably longer to load when accessing the Internet using high-latency wide-area wireless networks like 3G. This delay can result in lower user satisfaction and lost revenue for web site operators. By ...
    • The k-best paths in Hidden Markov Models. Algorithms and Applications to Transmembrane Protein Topology Recognition. 

      Golod, Daniil (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-26)
      Traditional algorithms for hidden Markov model decoding seek to maximize either the probability of a state path or the number of positions of a sequence assigned to the correct state. These algorithms provide only a ...
    • A k-Conjugacy Class Problem 

      Roberts, Collin (University of Waterloo, 2007-09-07)
      In any group G, we may extend the definition of the conjugacy class of an element to the conjugacy class of a k-tuple, for a positive integer k. When k = 2, we are forming the conjugacy classes of ordered pairs, when k ...
    • K-theory for C*-Algebras and for Topological Spaces 

      Xiao, Rui Philip (University of Waterloo, 2015-04-27)
      K-theory is the study of a collection of abelian groups that are invariant to C*-algebras or to locally compact Hausdorff spaces. These groups are useful for distinguishing C*-algebras and topological spaces, and they are ...
    • Kalman Filter Based Sensor Placement For Burgers Equation 

      Zonov, Stanislav (University of Waterloo, 2019-06-03)
      The algorithm used for determining sensor placement in this thesis will be based on the Kalman filter. This filter is very famous and its application are numerous - some examples include aircraft navigation, finance and ...
    • Keeping it simple. Short stories written by the young generation in post-war Germany. 

      Baumann, Julia (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-30)

    • Keeping Up With the Joneses: Electricity Consumption, Publicity and Social Network Influence in Milton, Ontario 

      Deline, Mary Elizabeth (University of Waterloo, 2010-05-21)
      Abstract This study used an exploratory research focus to investigate if making electricity consumption public and subject to social norms and networks resulted in consumption decreases for households in Milton, Ontario. ...
    • Kernel Methods and Measures for Classification with Transparency, Interpretability and Accuracy in Health Care 

      Carrington, André (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-05)
      Support vector machines are a popular method in machine learning. They learn from data about a subject, for example, lung tumors in a set of patients, to classify new data, such as, a new patient’s tumor. The new tumor is ...
    • Kernel Methods in Computer-Aided Constructive Drug Design 

      Wong, William Wai Lun (University of Waterloo, 2009-05-14)
      A drug is typically a small molecule that interacts with the binding site of some target protein. Drug design involves the optimization of this interaction so that the drug effectively binds with the target protein while ...
    • Kernelized Supervised Dictionary Learning 

      Jabbarzadeh Gangeh, Mehrdad (University of Waterloo, 2013-04-25)
      The representation of a signal using a learned dictionary instead of predefined operators, such as wavelets, has led to state-of-the-art results in various applications such as denoising, texture analysis, and face ...
    • Key Agreement over Wiretap Models with Non-Causal Side Information 

      Zibaeenejad, Ali (University of Waterloo, 2012-06-20)
      The security of information is an indispensable element of a communication system when transmitted signals are vulnerable to eavesdropping. This issue is a challenging problem in a wireless network as propagated signals ...
    • Key Compression for Isogeny-Based Cryptosystems 

      Leonardi, Christopher (University of Waterloo, 2016-04-21)
      We present a method for key compression in quantum-resistant isogeny-based cryptosystems, which reduces storage and transmission costs of per-party public information by a factor of two, with no effect on the security level ...
