      Microarchitectural events have been the subject of previous investigations for malware detection. While some studies assert the effectiveness of utilizing hardware events in detecting malware, others contend that they ...
    • Salvage Montage 

      da Silva, Catia Marisa Costa (University of Waterloo, 2009-09-09)
      This thesis proposes a reinterpretation of assumptions towards material value. It is a positive argument in favour of adaptive re-use, not only as a means to divert waste but also as encouragement to reconsider our current ...
    • Sample size effect in ultrasonic testing of geomaterials - numerical and experimental study 

      Berube, Simon (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-21)
      Nondestructive evaluation of civil structures is of increasing interest to utility owners. Several methods exist to evaluate different properties of concrete, pavement, cemented sands and others. UPVM is the most commonly ...
    • Sampled-Data Control of Invariant Systems on Exponential Lie Groups 

      McCarthy, Philip James (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-28)
      This thesis examines the dynamics and control of a class of systems furnished by kinematic systems on exponential matrix Lie groups, when the plant evolves in continuous-time, but whose controller is implemented in ...
    • Sampling Time Jitter 

      Seifi, Seyed Mohammad Ehsan (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-23)
      Electrical systems which use voltage transitions to represent timing information suffer from a degrading phenomenon called timing jitter. Sampling time jitter is the deviation of sampling clock from its ideal position. As ...
    • Sampling-based Program Execution Monitoring 

      Ba, Yanmeng (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-30)
      For its high overall cost during product development, program debugging is an important aspect of system development. Debugging is a hard and complex activity, especially in time-sensitive systems which have limited ...
    • Sampling-Window Based Approach for Fire Gas Analysis of Rigid Foams 

      Jones, Bryn (University of Waterloo, 2013-08-22)
      A sampling-window based approach was developed to collect and analyze the gases evolved during fire performance testing using the cone calorimeter. For this purpose, a Fourier Transform Intra-red (FTIR) Spectroscopy system ...
    • São Paulo: An Ecological View Of A Theatre For Modernity 

      Gomes, Fausto (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      Future challenges for human civilization, especially in the developing world, will increasingly be characterized by both an urban and global condition. What will be the response by design in the face of the implications ...
    • Scalable Context-Sensitive Pointer Analysis for LLVM 

      Kuderski, Jakub (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-13)
      Pointer analysis is indispensable for effectively verifying heap-manipulating programs. Even though it has been studied extensively, there are no publicly available pointer analyses for low-level languages that are ...
    • Scalable Embeddings for Kernel Clustering on MapReduce 

      Elgohary, Ahmed (University of Waterloo, 2014-02-18)
      There is an increasing demand from businesses and industries to make the best use of their data. Clustering is a powerful tool for discovering natural groupings in data. The k-means algorithm is the most commonly-used data ...
    • Scalable Human-Machine Interaction System for Real-Time Care in the Internet of Health Things 

      Nasr Mohamed, Mahmoud (University of Waterloo, 2020-08-28)
      The rise in numbers of individuals with weak immunity around the world and the aging of populations put an ever-growing pressure on healthcare and inevitably increases its cost. This phenomenon leads to larger portions of ...
