    • Early Language Learning is a Good Model for Studying Early User Interface Learning 

      Lester, Erin (University of Waterloo, 2005)
      To date, the self-revealing interface has been the elusive holy grail of the user interface community. This research advocates the use of early language learning as a model for early user interface learning. This model ...
    • The Early Universe: New Aspects of Cuscuton Theory, Modified Dispersion Relations and Pulsar Constraints on Vacuum Noise 

      Kim, Hyung Jin (University of Waterloo, 2017-10-26)
      The modern cosmology started blossoming in the early 1900s, with the theoretical framework provided by Einstein's general relativity. Soon after that, with observational discoveries such as expansion of cosmos by Hubble ...
    • Early Warning Signals of Vaccine Scares. 

      Pananos, A. Demetri (University of Waterloo, 2016-09-26)
      There exists strong evidence that vaccines are extremely effective in the prevention of pediatric infectious disease, yet despite this evidence, vaccine refusal is still popular amongst some parents. Existing mathematical ...
    • The Eberlein Compactification of Locally Compact Groups 

      Elgun, Elcim (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-24)
      A compact semigroup is, roughly, a semigroup compactification of a locally compact group if it contains a dense homomorphic image of the group. The theory of semigroup compactifications has been developed in connection ...
    • Economic Pricing of Mortality-Linked Securities 

      Zhou, Rui (University of Waterloo, 2012-09-26)
      In previous research on pricing mortality-linked securities, the no-arbitrage approach is often used. However, this method, which takes market prices as given, is difficult to implement in today's embryonic market where ...
    • Edge coloring multigraphs without small dense subsets 

      Haxell, P.E.; Kierstead, H.A. (Elsevier, 2015-12-06)
      One consequence of a long-standing conjecture of Goldberg and Seymour about the chromatic index of multigraphs would be the following statement. Suppose $G$ is a multigraph with maximum degree $\Delta$, such that no vertex ...
    • Edge State Transfer 

      Chen, Qiuting (University of Waterloo, 2019-01-11)
      Let G be a graph and let t be a positive real number. Then the evolution of the continuous quantum walk defined on G is described by the transition matrix U(t)=exp(itH).The matrix H is called Hamiltonian. So far the most ...
    • EdgeX: Edge Replication for Web Applications 

      Saxena, Hemant (University of Waterloo, 2015-10-13)
      Global web applications face the problem of high network latency due to their need to communicate with distant data centers. Many applications use edge networks for caching images, CSS, javascript, and other static content ...
    • Effcient Simulation of Message-Passing in Distributed-Memory Architectures 

      Demaine, Erik (University of Waterloo, 1996)
      In this thesis we propose a distributed-memory parallel-computer simulation system called PUPPET (Performance Under a Pseudo-Parallel EnvironmenT). It allows the evaluation of parallel programs run in a pseudo-parallel ...
    • Effect of a Mobile Phone Intervention on Quitting Smoking in a Young Adult Population of Smokers: Randomized Controlled Trial 

      Baskerville, Neill Bruce; Struik, Laura; Guindon, Godefroy Emmanuel; Norman, Cameron; Whittaker, Robyn; Burns, Catherine; Hammond, David; Dash, Darly; Brown, K. Stephen (JMIR, 2018-10-23)
      Background: Digital mobile technology presents a promising medium for reaching young adults with smoking cessation interventions because they are the heaviest users of this technology. Objective: The aim of this study ...
    • The Effect of Input Signals Time-Delay on Stabilizing Traffic with Autonomous Vehicles 

      Al-Darabsah, Isam; Al Janaideh, Mohammad; Campbell, Sue Ann (IEEE, 2021-05)
      This paper extends the results in [1] considering time delays in Standard Car Following models (CFMs). In [1], connected vehicles are characterized with CFMs models and controlled using linear string analysis to stabilize ...
    • The effect of omitted covariates in marginal and partially conditional recurrent event analyses 

      Zhong, Yujie; Cook, Richard J. (Springer, 2019-04-01)
      There have been many advances in statistical methodology for the analysis of recurrent event data in recent years. Multiplicative semiparametric rate-based models are widely used in clinical trials, as are more general ...
    • Effect of Prevalence on Relevance Assessing Behaviour 

      Jethani, Chandra Prakash (University of Waterloo, 2011-08-29)
      Relevance assessing is an important part of information retrieval (IR) evaluation in addition to being something that all users of IR systems must do as part of their search for relevant documents. In this thesis, we present ...
    • The Effect of Time-Varying Boundary Conditions on the Generation of Sum and Difference Frequency Tones in a Coaxial Loudspeaker 

      Dupont, Edward (University of Waterloo, 2009-06-22)
      A coaxial loudspeaker in which the woofer and tweeter oscillate at angular frequencies ω_1 and ω_2 respectively, is known to produce sum and difference frequencies ω_± = ω_1 ± ω_2. The generation of these can be attributed ...
    • Effective and Efficient Optimization Methods for Kernel Based Classification Problems 

      Tayal, Aditya (University of Waterloo, 2014-04-22)
      Kernel methods are a popular choice in solving a number of problems in statistical machine learning. In this thesis, we propose new methods for two important kernel based classification problems: 1) learning from highly ...
    • Effective Dimensionality Control in Quantitative Finance and Insurance 

      Liu, Kai (University of Waterloo, 2017-09-06)
      It is well-known that dimension reduction techniques such as the Brownian bridge, principal component analysis, linear transformation could increase the efficiency of Quasi-Monte Carlo (QMC) methods. Caflisch et al. (1997), ...
    • Effective Use of SSDs in Database Systems 

      Ghodsnia, Pedram (University of Waterloo, 2018-05-07)
      With the advent of solid state drives (SSDs), the storage industry has experienced a revolutionary improvement in I/O performance. Compared to traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), SSDs benefit from shorter I/O latency, ...
    • Effects of a Geostrophic Current on the Propagation and Generation of Internal Tides 

      He, Yangxin (University of Waterloo, 2021-08-30)
      Internal tides (ITs) are ubiquitous in a stratified ocean where they are generated in response to tidal flows incident upon bottom topography. Along-shelf currents or boundary currents are ocean currents commonly observed ...
    • The Effects of Confinement on Kelvin-Helmholtz Billows 

      Baglaenko, Anton (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-15)
      Turbulence is one of the most interesting and important, yet poorly understood, aspects of fluid mechanics. The transition from an unstable laminar flow to a fully turbulent flow can follow many paths depending on the ...
