    • Homologous Gene Finding with a Hidden Markov Model 

      Cui, Xuefeng (University of Waterloo, 2007-01-18)
      The homology search problem and the gene finding problem are two fundamental problems in bioinformatics. The homology search problem is to find the homologous regions of two biological sequences; the gene finding problem ...
    • Homomorphic Encryption 

      Weir, Brandon (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-24)
      In this thesis, we provide a summary of fully homomorphic encryption, and in particular, look at the BGV encryption scheme by Brakerski, Gentry, and Vaikuntanathan; as well the DGHV encryption scheme by van Dijk, Gentry, ...
    • Homotopy algorithms for solving structured determinantal systems 

      Vu, Thi Xuan (University of Waterloo, 2020-12-17)

    • Honest Approximations to Realistic Fault Models and Their Applications to Efficient Simulation of Quantum Error Correction 

      Daniel, Puzzuoli (University of Waterloo, 2014-04-25)
      Understanding the performance of realistic noisy encoded circuits is an important task for the development of large-scale practical quantum computers. Specifically, the development of proposals for quantum computation must ...
    • Honkling: In-Browser Personalization for Ubiquitous Keyword Spotting 

      Lee, Jaejun (University of Waterloo, 2019-12-19)
      Used for simple voice commands and wake-word detection, keyword spotting (KWS) is the task of detecting pre-determined keywords in a stream of utterances. A common implementation of KWS involves transmitting audio samples ...
    • House Price Risk in Mortgage Contracts 

      Mei, Yuchen (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-25)
      Research has shown that mortgage default is closely related to house prices. When house prices fall the borrower has an incentive to default. Since default incurs substantial cost to the lender, the borrower and many other ...
    • How I wasted too long finding a concentration inequality for sums of geometric variables 

      Brown, Daniel G. (2011)
      I wanted a concentration inequality for sums of iid geometric random variables. This took way too long.
    • How many crowdsourced workers should a requester hire? 

      Carvalho, Arthur; Dimitrov, Stanko; Larson, Kate (Springer, 2016-01)
      Recent years have seen an increased interest in crowdsourcing as a way of obtaining information from a potentially large group of workers at a reduced cost. The crowdsourcing process, as we consider in this paper, is as ...
    • How Programmers Comment When They Think Nobody's Watching 

      Parent, Simon Benjamin Orion (University of Waterloo, 2014-04-17)
      Documentation is essential to software development. Experienced programmers know this well from having worked with poorly documented code. They wish to improve their documentation techniques and habits, but there is ...
    • Hubble Spacer Telescope 

      Ramanathan, Aishwarya (University of Waterloo, 2022-01-19)
      Visualizing a model checker’s run on a model can be useful when trying to gain a deeper understanding of the verification of the particular model. However, it can be difficult to formalize the problem that visualization ...
    • Human Skin Modelling and Rendering 

      Poirier, Guillaume (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      Creating realistic-looking skin is one of the holy grails of computer graphics and is still an active area of research. The problem is challenging due to the inherent complexity of skin and its variations, not only across ...
    • Human-AI Interaction in the Presence of Ambiguity: From Deliberation-based Labeling to Ambiguity-aware AI 

      Schaekermann, Mike (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-11)
      Ambiguity, the quality of being open to more than one interpretation, permeates our lives. It comes in different forms including linguistic and visual ambiguity, arises for various reasons and gives rise to disagreements ...
    • A Human-Machine Framework for the Classification of Phonocardiograms 

      Callaghan, William (University of Waterloo, 2018-04-20)
      In this thesis, we present and evaluate a framework for combining machine learning algo- rithms, crowd workers, and experts in the classification of heart sound recordings. The development of a hybrid human-machine framework ...
    • Hurwitz Trees and Tropical Geometry 

      Akeyr, Garnet Jonathan (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-21)
      The lifting problem in algebraic geometry asks when a finite group G acting on a curve defined over characteristic p > 0 lifts to characteristic 0. One object used in the study of this problem is the Hurwitz tree, which ...
    • A Hybrid Cellular Automata Model for the Role of Reactive Oxygen Species in Novel Tumour Treatments Strategies 

      May, Brandon (University of Waterloo, 2015-01-21)
      Cancer is a disease that entails uncontrolled proliferation and a disruption of tissue function that often results in a poor clinical outcome. Furthermore, it has continued to elude any universal treatment or cure in part ...
    • A Hybrid Model for Object-Oriented Software Maintenance 

      Dong, Xinyi (University of Waterloo, 2008-09-22)
      An object-oriented software system is composed of a collection of communicating objects that co-operate with one another to achieve some desired goals. The object is the basic unit of abstraction in an OO program; ...
    • A Hybrid Symbolic-Numeric Method for Multiple Integration Based on Tensor-Product Series Approximations 

      Carvajal, Orlando A (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      This work presents a new hybrid symbolic-numeric method for fast and accurate evaluation of multiple integrals, effective both in high dimensions and with high accuracy. In two dimensions, the thesis presents an adaptive ...
    • HybridPointing Touch: A Technique to Switch Between Absolute and Relative Pointing on Large Touch Screens 

      DIckson, Terence (University of Waterloo, 2017-10-25)
      We extend Forlines et al.'s idea of mixed absolute and relative "HybridPointing" to large multitouch displays. In our bimanual "CursorTap" interaction technique, one hand triggers a kinaesthetic relative pointing mode while ...
    • Hydrodynamic Modeling of Dielectric Response in Graphene and Carbon Nanotubes 

      Zuloaga, Jorge (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      This thesis studies two important carbon structures, graphene and carbon nanotubes, with the purpose of understanding how their three-dimensional electron density distribution affects the way fast ions interact with them. ...
    • Hydrodynamic Modelling of the Electronic Response of Carbon Nanotubes 

      Mowbray, Duncan John (University of Waterloo, 2007-02-08)
      The discovery of carbon nanotubes by Iijima in 1991 has created a torrent of new research activities. Research on carbon nanotubes ranges from studying their fundamental properties, such as their electron band structure ...
