    • Automatic Datapath Abstraction Of Pipelined Circuits 

      Vlad, Ciubotariu (University of Waterloo, 2011-02-23)
      Pipelined circuits operate as an assembly line that starts processing new instructions while older ones continue execution. Control properties specify the correct behaviour of the pipeline with respect to how it handles ...
    • Automatic Parallelization for Graphics Processing Units in JikesRVM 

      Leung, Alan Chun Wai (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-23)
      Accelerated graphics cards, or Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), have become ubiquitous in recent years. On the right kinds of problems, GPUs greatly surpass CPUs in terms of raw performance. However, GPUs are currently ...
    • Automatic Physical Design for XML Databases 

      Elghandour, Iman (University of Waterloo, 2010-11-17)
      Database systems employ physical structures such as indexes and materialized views to improve query performance, potentially by orders of magnitude. It is therefore important for a database administrator to choose the ...
    • Automatic Sequences and Decidable Properties: Implementation and Applications 

      Goc, Daniel (University of Waterloo, 2013-09-19)
      In 1912 Axel Thue sparked the study of combinatorics on words when he showed that the Thue-Morse sequence contains no overlaps, that is, factors of the form ayaya. Since then many interesting properties of sequences began ...
    • Automatic Signature Matching in Component Composition 

      Hashemian, Seyyed Vahid (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-12)
      Reuse is not a new concept in software engineering. Ideas, abstractions, and processes have been reused by programmers since the very early days of software development. In the beginning, since storage media was very ...
    • Automatically Tuning Database Server Multiprogramming Level 

      Abouzour, Mohammed (University of Waterloo, 2007-09-06)
      Optimizing database systems to achieve the maximum attainable throughput of the underlying hardware is one of the many difficult tasks that face Database Administrators. With the increased use of database systems in many ...
    • Automating Programming Assignment Marking with AST Analysis 

      Li, Sichuang (University of Waterloo, 2019-01-14)
      This thesis presents a novel approach to automatically mark programming assignments. We hypothesize that correct student solution ASTs will be more similar to reference solution ASTs than incorrect student solutions and ...
    • The Automation of Glycopeptide Discovery in High Throughput MS/MS Data 

      Swamy, Sajani (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      Glycosylation, the addition of one or more carbohydrates molecules to a protein, is crucial for many cellular processes. Aberrant glycosylation is a key marker for various diseases such as cancer and rheumatoid arthritis. ...
    • An Automaton-Theoretic View of Algebraic Specifications 

      Lahav, Elad (University of Waterloo, 2005)
      We compare two methods for software specification: <em>algebraic specifications</em> and automata. While algebraic specifications have been around since the 1970s and have been studied extensively, specification by ...
    • Automotive Electronic/Electric Architecture Modeling, Design Exploration and Optimization using Clafer 

      Murashkin, Alexandr (University of Waterloo, 2014-09-10)
      Modern car systems are getting more complex, so do car electronic/electric (E/E) architectures. E/E architecture of a car includes sensors, actuators, programmable ECUs and all the related communications. The complexity ...
    • Autonomic Resource Management for a Cluster that Executes Batch Jobs 

      Sung, Lik Gan Alex (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      Resource management of large scale clusters is traditionally done manually. Servers are usually over-provisioned to meet the peak demand of workload. It is widely known that manual provisioning is error-prone and ...
    • Autonomous Cooperating Web Crawlers 

      McLearn, Greg (University of Waterloo, 2002)
      A web crawler provides an automated way to discover web events ? creation, deletion, or updates of web pages. Competition among web crawlers results in redundant crawling, wasted resources, and less-than-timely discovery ...
    • Autonomous Vehicles with Visual Signals for Pedestrians: Experiments and Design Recommendations 

      Chen, Henry (University of Waterloo, 2020-01-23)
      Autonomous Vehicles (AV) are the future of transportation and they will transform the dynamic of vehicle and pedestrian interaction. However, in the absence of a driver, it is not clear how an AV can use visual signals to ...
    • Avoiding Bad Query Mixes to Minimize Unsuccessful Client Requests Under Heavy Loads 

      Tozer, Sean (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-21)
      In three-tiered web applications, some form of admission control is required to ensure that throughput and response times are not significantly harmed during periods of heavy load. We propose Q-Cop, a prototype system ...
    • Backdoors in Satisfiability Problems 

      Li, Zijie (University of Waterloo, 2009-10-08)
      Although satisfiability problems (SAT) are NP-complete, state-of-the-art SAT solvers are able to solve large practical instances. The notion of backdoors has been introduced to capture structural properties of instances. ...
    • Backscatter in stratified turbulence 

      Khani, Sina; Waite, Michael L (Elsevier, 2016-11)
      In this paper, kinetic and potential energy transfers around a spectral test fil ter scale in direct numerical simulations of decaying stratified turbulence are studied in both physical and spectral domains. It is shown ...
    • Balancing Fidelity and Performance in Iridal Light Transport Simulations Aimed at Interactive Applications 

      Kravchenko, Boris (University of Waterloo, 2016-11-29)
      Specific light transport models based on first-principles approaches have been proposed for complex organic materials such as human skin and blood. The driving force behind these efforts has been the high-fidelity reproduction ...
    • BanditFuzz: Fuzzing SMT Solvers with Reinforcement Learning 

      Scott, Joseph; Mora, Federico; Ganesh, Vijay (2020)
      Satisfiability Modulo Theories (SMT) solvers are fundamental tools in the broad context of software engineering and security research. If SMT solvers are to continue to have an impact, it is imperative we develop efficient ...
    • Bandlimited functions, curved manifolds, and self-adjoint extensions of symmetric operators 

      Martin, Robert (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-20)
      Sampling theory is an active field of research that spans a variety of disciplines from communication engineering to pure mathematics. Sampling theory provides the crucial connection between continuous and discrete ...
    • Barehand Mode Switching in Touch and Mid-Air Interfaces 

      Surale, Hemant (University of Waterloo, 2020-05-28)
      Raskin defines a mode as a distinct setting within an interface where the same user input will produce results different to those it would produce in other settings. Most interfaces have multiple modes in which input is ...
