    • Multivariate Multiscale Analysis of Neural Spike Trains 

      Ramezan, Reza (University of Waterloo, 2013-12-17)
      This dissertation introduces new methodologies for the analysis of neural spike trains. Biological properties of the nervous system, and how they are reflected in neural data, can motivate specific analytic tools. Some of ...
    • Multivariate Risk Measures for Portfolio Risk Management 

      Jia, Huameng (University of Waterloo, 2021-01-29)
      In portfolio risk management, the main foci are to control the aggregate risk of the entire portfolio and to understand the contribution of each individual risk unit in the portfolio to the aggregate risk. When univariate ...
    • Multivariate Time Series Analysis of the Investment Guarantee in Canadian Segregated Fund Products 

      Liu, Jie (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-23)
      In the context of the guarantee liability valuation, the sophisticated fund-of-funds structure, of some Canadian segregated fund products, often requires us to model multiple market indices simultaneously in order to ...
    • Mutation rates of Escherichia coli with different balanced growth rates: a new fluctuation test protocol and phenotypic lag adjustments 

      Barna, Christian Henderson (University of Waterloo, 2020-10-23)
      Bacteria are the oldest, most abundant life form on the planet, and every other organism’s livelihood is dependent on them. The bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) is commonly used in microbiology as a model organism to ...
    • Mutual Information Based Methods to Localize Image Registration 

      Wilkie, Kathleen Patricia (University of Waterloo, 2005)

    • Naive Bayes Data Complexity and Characterization of Optima of the Unsupervised Expected Likelihood 

      Wytsma, Alexandra (University of Waterloo, 2017-09-21)
      The naive Bayes model is a simple model that has been used for many decades, often as a baseline, for both supervised and unsupervised learning. With a latent class variable it is one of the simplest latent variable models, ...
    • Nature vs. Stress: Investigating the Use of Biophilia in Non-Violent Exploration Games to Reduce Stress 

      Reetz, Adrian; Valtchanov, Deltcho; Barnett-Cowan, Michael; Hancock, Mark; Wallace, James R (ACM, 2021)
      Games hold the potential to help many address health-related issues such as chronic stress. We investigated the use of biophilia, an affective response to nature grounded in the psychology literature, as indirect physiological ...
    • Near-optimal quantum strategies for nonlocal games, approximate representations, and BCS algebras 

      Paul-Paddock, Connor (University of Waterloo, 2023-05-04)
      Quantum correlations can be viewed as particular abstract states on the tensor product of operator systems which model quantum measurement scenarios. In the paradigm of nonlocal games, this perspective illustrates a ...
    • Negative Correlation Properties for Matroids 

      Erickson, Alejandro (University of Waterloo, 2008-12-23)
      In pursuit of negatively associated measures, this thesis focuses on certain negative correlation properties in matroids. In particular, the results presented contribute to the search for matroids which satisfy $$P(\{X:e,f\in ...
    • Negative Quasi-Probability in the Context of Quantum Computation 

      Veitch, Victor (University of Waterloo, 2013-08-09)
      This thesis deals with the question of what resources are necessary and sufficient for quantum computational speedup. In particular, we study what resources are required to promote fault tolerant stabilizer computation to ...
    • Nested pessimistic transactions for both atomicity and synchronization in concurrent software 

      Chammah, Tarek (University of Waterloo, 2011-10-04)
      Existing atomic section interface proposals, thus far, have tended to only isolate transactions from each other. Less considered is the coordination of threads performing transactions with respect to one another. Synchronization ...
    • Network Bargaining: Creating Stability Using Blocking Sets 

      Steiner, David (University of Waterloo, 2012-01-20)
      Bargaining theory seeks to answer the question of how to divide a jointly generated surplus between multiple agents. John Nash proposed the Nash Bargaining Solution to answer this question for the special case of two agents. ...
    • Network centrality analysis of eye-gaze data in autism spectrum disorder 

      Sadria, Mehrshad; Karimi, Soroush; Layton, Anita T. (Elsevier, 2019-08)
      Individuals suffering from autism spectrum disorder (ASD) exhibit impaired social communication, the manifestations of which include abnormal eye contact and gaze. In this study, we first seek to characterize the spatial ...
    • A Network Integrated Design for Micro-scale Cloud Services 

      Abdel-hadi, Ashraf (University of Waterloo, 2022-05-25)
      We present Falcon, network-integrated scheduler for micro-scale services. Falcon follows a centralized scheduler design to achieve high scheduling efficiency and leverages modern programmable switches to lower the scheduling ...
    • Network Performance Improvements for Low-Latency Anonymity Networks 

      Al-Sabah, Mashael (University of Waterloo, 2013-04-22)
      While advances to the Internet have enabled users to easily interact and exchange information online, they have also created several opportunities for adversaries to prey on users’ private information. Whether the motivation ...
    • Network-Accelerated Linearizable Reads 

      Takruri, Hatem (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-07)
      This thesis present FLAIR, a novel approach for accelerating read operations in leader-based consensus protocols. FLAIR leverages the capabilities of the new generation of programmable switches to serve reads from follower ...
    • Network-accelerated Scheduling for Large Clusters 

      Kettaneh, Ibrahim (University of Waterloo, 2020-05-04)

    • NeuRA: Using Neural Networks to Improve WiFi Rate Adaptation 

      Khastoo, Shervin (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-04)
      Although a variety of rate adaptation algorithms have been proposed for 802.11 devices, sampling-based algorithms are preferred and used in practice because they only require frame loss information which is available on ...
    • A neural modelling approach to investigating general intelligence 

      Rasmussen, Daniel (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-06)
