    • Predictive Runtime Verification of Stochastic Systems 

      Babaee Cheshmeahmadrezaee, Reza (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-13)
      Runtime Verification (RV) is the formal analysis of the execution of a system against some properties at runtime. RV is particularly useful for stochastic systems that have a non-zero probability of failure at runtime. ...
    • Preliminary Development of a Microfluidic Tool for the Characterization of Molecular Machines 

      Strike, Zachary (University of Waterloo, 2022-01-06)
      Transmembrane proteins cross the membranes of biological cells and perform integral cell functions that often must be described using quantum mechanics. Developing a better understanding of these quantum mechanical behaviours ...
    • Pressure Wave Velocity Using High-Frame-Rate Ultrasound Imaging for Urodynamic Study 

      Alam, Nova (University of Waterloo, 2023-01-16)
      Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a noncancerous urologic condition in aging males where an overgrowth of the prostate gland occurs. It notably leads to lower urinary tract symptoms ranging from inconvenient nocturia ...
    • Price Forecasting and Optimal Operation of Wholesale Customers in a Competitive Electricity Market 

      Zareipour, Hamidreza (University of Waterloo, 2006-12-05)
      This thesis addresses two main issues: first, forecasting short-term electricity market prices; and second, the application of short-term electricity market price forecasts to operation planning of demand-side Bulk ...
    • Pricing in a Multiple ISP Environment with Delay Bounds and Varying Traffic Loads 

      Gabrail, Sameh (University of Waterloo, 2008-08-15)
      In this thesis, we study different Internet pricing schemes and how they can be applied to a multiple ISP environment. We first take a look at the current Internet architecture. Then the different classes that make up the ...
    • Primary and Secondary Frequency Control Techniques for Isolated Microgrids 

      Farrokhabadi, Mostafa (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-18)
      Isolated microgrids have been shown to be a reliable and efficient solution to provide energy to remote communities. From the primary control perspective, due to the low system inertia and fast changes in the output power ...
    • Primary Frequency Control with Flywheel Energy Storage Technologies 

      Peralta Moarry, Dario (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-25)
      Over the last decade, concerns about greenhouse gas emissions have increased. Different strategies have been developed to minimize those effects, leading to the development of renewable energy sources worldwide. In recent ...
    • Prioritized Unit Propagation and Extended Resolution Techniques for SAT Solvers 

      Chung, Jonathan (University of Waterloo, 2023-08-29)
      NP-complete problems like the Boolean Satisfiability (SAT) Problem are ubiquitous in computer science, mathematics, and engineering. Consequently, researchers have developed algorithms such as Conflict-Driven Clause-Learning ...
    • Privacy-Preserving and Regulation-Enabled Mechanisms for Blockchain-based Financial Services 

      Xue, Liang (University of Waterloo, 2022-09-26)
      With the success of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, blockchain technology has attracted extensive attention from both academia and industry. As a distributed ledger technology, blockchain provides decentralization and ...
    • Privacy-Preserving Multi-Quality Charging in V2G network 

      He, Miao (University of Waterloo, 2014-05-08)
      Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) network, which provides electricity charging service to the electric vehicles (EVs), is an essential part of the smart grid (SG). It can not only effectively reduce the greenhouse gas emission but ...
    • Private Allocation of Public Goods 

      Kananian, Pouya (University of Waterloo, 2022-09-13)
      We study the problem of designing a truthful mechanism for fair allocation of divisible public goods. We consider a setting with n agents and m items. Each item is associated with a size, and the total size of the allocated ...
    • Probing Ising Superconductivity and Light-Induced Phase Transitions in Two-Dimensional Transition Metal Dichalcogenides
