      Risko, Evan F. (University of Waterloo, 2008-08-01)
      The present thesis is concerned with the role of spatial attention in visual word processing. Eleven experiments are reported each of which consists of the combination of a manipulation of spatial attention (i.e., cue ...
    • Basin-wide Water Demand Management: Transfers and Compensation among Competing Users 

      Xiao, Yi (University of Waterloo, 2017-06-02)
      Water demand management is incorporated into a two-step water allocation process in order to motivate water users to implement water demand management strategies. In the first step, the initial allocation of water is based ...

      Almehdawe, Eman (University of Waterloo, 2007-09-10)
      Hybrid Make-To-Stock (MTS)-Make-To-Order (MTO) manufacturing is a well known policy that captures the benefits of both MTS and MTO policies. This manufacturing policy is adopted by many manufacturing firms because it allows ...
    • Batch Verification of Elliptic Curve Digital Signatures 

      Wesolowski, Michael (University of Waterloo, 2015-04-20)
      This thesis investigates the efficiency of batching the verification of elliptic curve signatures. The first signature scheme considered is a modification of ECDSA proposed by Antipa et al.\ along with a batch verification ...
    • Battery Degradation Modeling For Vehicle Applications 

      Finley, Thomas Dylan (University of Waterloo, 2014-09-19)
      Fuel efficiency is a fundamental part of the automotive industry and its impact on the global environment. This is a direct result of the Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency (CAFE) standards imposing a 70% improvement of ...
    • Bayesian Analysis of Intratumoural Oxygen Data 

      Tang, Herbert Hoi Chi (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-28)
      There is now ample evidence to support the notion that a lack of oxygen (hypoxia) within the tumour adversely affects the outcome of radiotherapy and whether a patient is able to remain disease free. Thus, there is increasing ...
    • Bayesian Contact Tracing for Communicable Respiratory Diseases 

      Shalaby, Ayman (University of Waterloo, 2014-01-24)
      Purpose: The purpose of our work is to develop a system for automatic contact tracing with the goal of identifying individuals who are most likely infected, even if we do not have direct diagnostic information on their ...
    • Bayesian Deep Learning and Uncertainty in Computer Vision 

      Phan, Buu Truong (University of Waterloo, 2019-09-17)
      Visual data contains rich information about the operating environment of an intelligent robotic system. Extracting this information allows intelligent systems to reason and decide their future actions. Erroneous visual ...
    • Bayesian Experimental Design Framework Applied to Complex Polymerization Processes 

      Nabifar, Afsaneh (University of Waterloo, 2012-06-29)
      The Bayesian design approach is an experimental design technique which has the same objectives as standard experimental (full or fractional factorial) designs but with significant practical benefits over standard design ...
    • A Bayesian Framework for Software Regression Testing 

      Mir arabbaygi, Siavash (University of Waterloo, 2008-08-29)
      Software maintenance reportedly accounts for much of the total cost associated with developing software. These costs occur because modifying software is a highly error-prone task. Changing software to correct faults or ...
    • Bayesian inference for source determination in the atmospheric environment 

      Keats, William Andrew (University of Waterloo, 2009-04-17)
      In the event of a hazardous release (chemical, biological, or radiological) in an urban environment, monitoring agencies must have the tools to locate and characterize the source of the emission in order to respond and ...
    • Bayesian Inference for Stochastic Volatility Models 

      Men, Zhongxian (University of Waterloo, 2012-09-26)
      Stochastic volatility (SV) models provide a natural framework for a representation of time series for financial asset returns. As a result, they have become increasingly popular in the finance literature, although they ...
    • Bayesian Inference Methods Applied to Cancer Research 

      Gunawan, Rudy (University of Waterloo, 2009-12-11)
      The purpose of this Thesis is to present a Bayesian analysis of oncological data sets with particular focus on cervical carcinomas and ovarian cancers. Bayesian methods of data analysis have a very long history, and ...
    • Bayesian Inference of Stochastic Degradation Models: A Likelihood-Free Approach 

      Hazra, Indranil (University of Waterloo, 2021-09-03)
      The structural integrity and system performance of large engineering systems are adversely affected by various forms of degradation mechanisms. Modeling of such mechanisms is accomplished by collecting degradation data ...
    • Bayesian Methods for Gas-Phase Tomography 

      Grauer, Samuel Jacobi (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-10)
      Gas-phase tomography refers to a set of techniques that determine the 2D or 3D distribution of a target species in a jet, plume, or flame using measurements of light, made around the boundary of a flow area. Reconstructed ...
    • Bayesian Model Based Tracking with Application to Cell Segmentation and Tracking 

      Nezamoddini-Kachouie, Nezamoddin (University of Waterloo, 2008-02-14)
      The goal of this research is to develop a model-based tracking framework with biomedical imaging applications. This is an interdisciplinary area of research with interests in machine vision, image processing, and ...
    • Bayesian Modeling of Pitting Corrosion in Steam Generators 

      Mao, Dan (University of Waterloo, 2007-09-05)
      Steam generators in nuclear power plants experienced varying degrees of under-deposit pitting corrosion. A probabilistic model to accurately predict pitting corrosion is necessary for effective life-cycle management of ...
    • Bayesian Nonparametric Dirichlet Process Mixture Modeling in Transportation Safety Studies 

      Heydari, Shahram (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-08)
      In transportation safety studies, it is often necessary to account for unobserved heterogeneity and multimodality in data. The commonly used standard generalized linear models (e.g., Poisson-gamma models) do not fully ...
    • Bayesian Sample Size Determination for Single-Particle Tracking of Pathogens in Biological Fluids 

      Yates, Bryan (University of Waterloo, 2018-01-17)
