    • Algorithms for Characterizing Peptides and Glycopeptides with Mass Spectrometry 

      He, Lin (University of Waterloo, 2013-09-26)
      The emergence of tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) technology has significantly accelerated protein identification and quantification in proteomics. It enables high-throughput analysis of proteins and their quantities in a ...
    • Algorithms for Geometric Covering and Piercing Problems 

      Fraser, Robert (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-10)
      This thesis involves the study of a range of geometric covering and piercing problems, where the unifying thread is approximation using disks. While some of the problems addressed in this work are solved exactly with ...
    • Algorithms for Normal Forms for Matrices of Polynomials and Ore Polynomials 

      Cheng, Howard (University of Waterloo, 2003)
      In this thesis we study algorithms for computing normal forms for matrices of Ore polynomials while controlling coefficient growth. By formulating row reduction as a linear algebra problem, we obtain a fraction-free ...
    • Alternative Approaches for Analysis of Bin Packing and List Update Problems 

      Kamali, Shahin (University of Waterloo, 2014-09-22)
      In this thesis we introduce and evaluate new algorithms and models for the analysis of online bin packing and list update problems. These are two classic online problems which are extensively studied in the literature and ...
    • Alternative Measures for the Analysis of Online Algorithms 

      Dorrigiv, Reza (University of Waterloo, 2010-04-08)
      In this thesis we introduce and evaluate several new models for the analysis of online algorithms. In an online problem, the algorithm does not know the entire input from the beginning; the input is revealed in a sequence ...
    • Analysis of Correlated Data with Measurement Error in Responses or Covariates 

      Chen, Zhijian (University of Waterloo, 2010-09-30)
      Correlated data frequently arise from epidemiological studies, especially familial and longitudinal studies. Longitudinal design has been used by researchers to investigate the changes of certain characteristics over time ...
    • Analysis of duration data from longitudinal surveys subject to loss to follow-up 

      Mariaca Hajducek, C. Dagmar (University of Waterloo, 2010-09-30)
      Data from longitudinal surveys give rise to many statistical challenges. They often come from a vast, heterogeneous population and from a complex sampling design. Further, they are usually collected retrospectively at ...
    • Analysis of Longitudinal Surveys with Missing Responses 

      Carrillo Garcia, Ivan Adolfo (University of Waterloo, 2008-09-12)
      Longitudinal surveys have emerged in recent years as an important data collection tool for population studies where the primary interest is to examine population changes over time at the individual level. The National ...
    • Analysis of Multi-State Models with Mismeasured Covariates or Misclassified States 

      He, Feng (University of Waterloo, 2015-05-22)
      Multi-state models provide a useful framework for estimating the rate of transitions between defined disease states and understanding the influence of covariates on transitions in studies of the disease progression. ...
    • Analysis of some risk models involving dependence 

      Cheung, Eric C.K. (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-12)
      The seminal paper by Gerber and Shiu (1998) gave a huge boost to the study of risk theory by not only unifying but also generalizing the treatment and the analysis of various risk-related quantities in one single mathematical ...
    • Analysis of Time Dependent Aggregate Claims 

      Xu, Di (University of Waterloo, 2016-07-22)
      Estimation of aggregate claim amounts is a fundamental task in Actuarial science, based on which risk theory, ruin theory and reinsurance theory can be studied. Properties, including moments, Laplace transforms, and ...
    • Analytic Combinatorics in Several Variables: Effective Asymptotics and Lattice Path Enumeration 

      Melczer, Stephen (University of Waterloo, 2017-06-26)
      The field of analytic combinatorics, which studies the asymptotic behaviour of sequences through analytic properties of their generating functions, has led to the development of deep and powerful tools with applications ...
    • Analytics for Everyone 

      El Gebaly, Kareem (University of Waterloo, 2018-05-23)
      Analyzing relational data typically involves tasks that facilitate gaining familiarity or insights and coming up with findings or conclusions based on the data. This process is usually practiced by data experts, such as ...
    • Analyzing Quantum Cryptographic Protocols Using Optimization Techniques 

      Sikora, Jamie William Jonathon (University of Waterloo, 2012-05-22)
      This thesis concerns the analysis of the unconditional security of quantum cryptographic protocols using convex optimization techniques. It is divided into the study of coin-flipping and oblivious transfer. We first examine ...
    • Angles, Majorization, Wielandt Inequality and Applications 

      Lin, Minghua (University of Waterloo, 2013-05-29)
      In this thesis we revisit two classical definitions of angle in an inner product space: real-part angle and Hermitian angle. Special attention is paid to Krein’s inequality and its analogue. Some applications are given, ...
    • Answering Object Queries over Knowledge Bases with Expressive Underlying Description Logics 

      Wu, Jiewen (University of Waterloo, 2013-10-25)
      Many information sources can be viewed as collections of objects and descriptions about objects. The relationship between objects is often characterized by a set of constraints that semantically encode background knowledge ...
    • Appearance Changes due to Light Exposure 

      Kimmel, Bradley William (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-12)
      The fading of materials due to light exposure over time is a major contributor to the overall aged appearance of man-made objects. Although much attention has been devoted to the modeling of aging and weathering phenomena ...
    • An Application of Matrix Analytic Methods to Queueing Models with Polling 

      Granville, Kevin (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-23)
      We review what it means to model a queueing system, and highlight several components of interest which govern the behaviour of customers, as well as the server(s) who tend to them. Our primary focus is on polling systems, ...
    • Application of Mixture Theory to solid tumors and normal pressure hydrocephalus 

      Burazin, Andrijana (University of Waterloo, 2014-01-15)
      In this thesis, the theory of poroelasticity, namely the Mixture Theory version -- a homogenized, macroscopic scale approach used to describe fluid flow through a porous medium -- is employed in three separate cases ...
    • Applications of claim investigation in insurance surplus and claims models 

      Huynh, Mirabelle (University of Waterloo, 2018-01-03)
      Claim investigation is a fundamental part of an insurer's business. Queues form as claims accumulate and claims are investigated according to some queueing mechanism. The natural existence of queues in this context prompts ...
