New Methods for Improving Accuracy in Three Distinct Predictive Modeling Problems
(University of Waterloo, 20180822)People are often interested in predicting a new or future observation. In clinical prediction, the uptake of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) has generated massive health datasets that are big in volume and diverse in ... 
New methods for Quantum Compiling
(University of Waterloo, 20140430)The efficiency of compiling highlevel quantum algorithms into instruction sets native to quantum computers defines the moment in the future when we will be able to solve interesting and important problems on quantum ... 
A New Optimality Measure for Distance Dominating Sets
(University of Waterloo, 2006)We study the problem of finding the smallest power of an input graph that has <em>k</em> disjoint dominating sets, where the <em>i</em>th power of an input graph <em>G</em> is constructed by adding edges between pairs ... 
A new perspective on loss to followup in failure time and life history studies
(Wiley, 20190724)A framework is proposed for the joint modeling of life history and loss to followup (LTF) processes in cohort studies. This framework provides a basis for discussing independence conditions for LTF and censoring and ... 
Niceness assumptions for Learning Algorithms
(University of Waterloo, 20140801)Various machine learning algorithms like Neural Networks, Linear Regression, Feature Learning etc. are being employed successfully in a wide variety of applications like computer vision, speech recognition, bioinformatics ... 
Nine Challenges In Incorporating The Dynamics Of Behaviour In Infectious Diseases Models
(Elsevier, 20150301)Traditionally, the spread of infectious diseases in human populations has been modelled with static parameters. These parameters, however, can change when individuals change their behaviour. If these changes are themselves ... 
No Zombie Types: LivenessBased Justification For Monotonic Gradual Types
(University of Waterloo, 20210824)Gradual type systems with the monotonic dynamic semantics, such as HiggsCheck implementing SafeTypeScript, are able to achieve decent performance, making them a viable option for JavaScript programmers seeking runtimecheckable ... 
NOCH: A framework for biologically plausible models of neural motor control
(University of Waterloo, 20100120)This thesis examines the neurobiological components of the motor control system and relates it to current control theory in order to develop a novel framework for models of motor control in the brain. The presented framework ... 
NodeWeighted Prize Collecting Steiner Tree and Applications
(University of Waterloo, 20130523)The Steiner Tree problem has appeared in the Karp's list of the first 21 NPhard problems and is well known as one of the most fundamental problems in Network Design area. We study the NodeWeighted version of the Prize ... 
Noisy Embezzlement of Entanglement and Applications to Entanglement Dilution
(University of Waterloo, 20190523)In this thesis we present the concept of embezzlement of entanglement, its properties, efficiency, possible generalizations and propose the linear programming characterization of this phenomenon. Then, we focus on the noisy ... 
Noisy Interactive Quantum Communication
(University of Waterloo, 20200825)We consider the problem of implementing twoparty interactive quantum communication over noisy channels, a necessary endeavor if we wish to fully reap quantum advantages for communication. For an arbitrary protocol with n ... 
Noncompact groups, tensor operators and applications to quantum gravity
(University of Waterloo, 20160923)This work focuses on noncompact groups and their applications to quantum gravity, mainly through the use of tensor operators. Noncompact groups appear naturally if the spacetime is of Lorentzian signature, but can also ... 
NonConstructivity in Security Proofs
(University of Waterloo, 20180910)In the field of cryptography, one generally obtains assurances for the security of a cryptographic protocol by giving a reductionist security proof, which is comprised of a reduction from breaking a mathematical problem ... 
The noninjective hidden shift problem
(University of Waterloo, 20120119)In this work, we mostly concentrate on the hidden shift problem for noninjective functions. It is worthwhile to know that the query complexity of the noninjective hidden shift problem is exponential in the worst case by ... 
A NonIntersecting RTree
(University of Waterloo, 20210512)Indexes for multidimensional data based on the RTree are popularly used by databases for a wide range of applications. Such index trees support point and range queries but are costly to construct over datasets of millions ... 
NonIntrusive Computing
(University of Waterloo, 20081217)Pervasive computing is an important trend today. It concerns devices and services in a smart space that interact with users in a simple, natural, and harmonious way. Many problems in this domain have been studied from ... 
NonIsotopic Symplectic Surfaces in Products of Riemann Surfaces
(University of Waterloo, 2006)<html> <head> <meta httpequiv="ContentType" content="text/html;charset=iso88591"> </head> Let Σ<em><sub>g</sub></em> be a closed Riemann surface of genus <em>g</em>. Generalizing Ivan Smith's construction, ... 
Nonlinear Effects on Stopping of Fast Moving Molecular Ions Through Solids
(University of Waterloo, 20070627)This thesis studies the nonlinear (Barkas) effects on stopping of fast moving molecular ions through solids. We model the solid target by a rigid lattice of positive ion cores surrounded by a gas of electrons. To model ...
