      Lacalamita, Andrea (University of Waterloo, 2011-08-19)
      A study of packing constructs a critique of the everyday: a dialogue between chaos and order, surface and area, interior and exterior, gravity and lightness. In search of tangible expression of the spatial processes I ...
    • PACS: Private and Adaptive Computational Sprinting 

      Wu, Simon (University of Waterloo, 2024-04-25)
      Computational sprinting is a class of mechanisms that enables a chip to temporarily exceed its thermal limits to enhance performance. Previous approaches model the optimization of computational-sprinting strategies as a ...
    • Pairing Generation for Airline Crew Scheduling 

      Bayer, Daniel Andreas (University of Waterloo, 2012-08-30)
      Airline planning is a complex and difficult process. The biggest airlines in the world plan for and operate fleets of over 700 aircraft using tens of thousands of crew members. As such, small percentages in savings translate ...
    • Paleoevolution of Pore Fluids in Glaciated Geologic Settings 

      Normani, Stefano Delfino (University of Waterloo, 2009-06-17)
      Nuclear power generation is being regarded as a solution to ever increasing demand for electricity, and concerns over global warming and climate change due to the use of fossil fuels. Although nuclear power generation is ...
    • Palladium Nanoparticles Loaded on Carbon Modified TiO2 Nanobelts for Enhanced Methanol Electrooxidation 

      Liang, Robert; Hu, Anming; Persic, John; Zhou, Y. Norman (Springer, 2013-09-12)
      Carbon modified TiO2 nanobelts (TiO2-C) were synthesized using a hydrothermal growth method, as a support material for palladium (Pd) nanoparticles (Pd/TiO2-C) to improve the electrocatalytic performance for methanol ...

      Kong, Adams (University of Waterloo, 2007-01-24)
      The development of accurate and reliable security systems is a matter of wide interest, and in this context biometrics is seen as a highly effective automatic mechanism for personal identification. Among biometric technologies, ...
    • Panic Detection in Human Crowds using Sparse Coding 

      Kumar, Abhishek (University of Waterloo, 2012-08-29)
      Recently, the surveillance of human activities has drawn a lot of attention from the research community and the camera based surveillance is being tried with the aid of computers. Cameras are being used extensively for ...
    • Parallel Multiplier Designs for the Galois/Counter Mode of Operation 

      Patel, Pujan (University of Waterloo, 2008-06-09)
      The Galois/Counter Mode of Operation (GCM), recently standardized by NIST, simultaneously authenticates and encrypts data at speeds not previously possible for both software and hardware implementations. In GCM, data ...
    • Parallel Run-Time Verification 

      Berkovich, Shay (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-24)
      Run-time verification is a technique to reason about a program correctness. Given a set of desirable properties and a program trace from the inspected program as an input, the monitor module verifies that properties hold ...
    • Parallelizing Legendre Memory Unit Training 

      Chilkuri, Narsimha Reddy (University of Waterloo, 2021-07-14)
      Recently, a new recurrent neural network (RNN) named the Legendre Memory Unit (LMU) was proposed and shown to achieve state-of-the-art performance on several benchmark datasets. Here we leverage the linear time-invariant ...
    • Parameter Estimation and Uncertainty Analysis of Contaminant First Arrival Times at Household Drinking Water Wells 

      Kang, Mary (University of Waterloo, 2007-01-25)
      Exposure assessment, which is an investigation of the extent of human exposure to a specific contaminant, must include estimates of the duration and frequency of exposure. For a groundwater system, the duration of exposure ...
    • Parameter estimation of an electrochemistry-based lithium-ion battery model 

      Masoudi, Ramin; Uchida, Thomas Kenji; McPhee, John (Elsevier, 2015-09-30)
