    • Resource Management in Virtualized Data Center 

      Rabbani, Md (University of Waterloo, 2014-02-21)
      As businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud to host their services, cloud providers are striving to offer guaranteed and highly-available resources. To achieve this goal, recent proposals have advocated to offer ...
    • Resource optimization for fault-tolerant quantum computing 

      Paetznick, Adam (University of Waterloo, 2014-01-02)
      Quantum computing offers the potential for efficiently solving otherwise classically difficult problems, with applications in material and drug design, cryptography, theoretical physics, number theory and more. However, ...
    • Resource Orchestration in Softwarized Networks 

      Bari, Md. Faizul (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-24)
      Network softwarization is an emerging research area that is envisioned to revolutionize the way network infrastructure is designed, operated, and managed today. Contemporary telecommunication networks are going through a ...
    • Resource Provisioning for Web Applications under Time-varying Traffic 

      Rajabi, Ali (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-14)
      Cloud computing has gained considerable popularity in recent years. In this paradigm, an organization, referred to as a subscriber, acquires resources from an infrastructure provider to deploy its applications and pays for ...
    • Resource Provisioning in the Electrical Grid 

      Ardakanian, Omid (University of Waterloo, 2011-04-21)
      Transformers and storage systems in the electrical grid must be provisioned or sized just as routers and buffers must be sized in the Internet. We prove the formal equivalence between these two systems and use this insight ...
    • Resource-Efficient Communication in the Presence of Adversaries 

      Young, Maxwell (University of Waterloo, 2011-08-19)
      This dissertation presents algorithms for achieving communication in the presence of adversarial attacks in large, decentralized, resource-constrained networks. We consider abstract single-hop communication settings where ...
    • Response-dependent two-phase sampling designs for biomarker studies 

      Cook, Richard J.; McIsaac, Michael A. (Wiley, 2014)
      Two-phase sampling designs are developed and investigated for use in the context of a rheumatology study where interest lies in the association between a biomarker with an expensive assay and disease progression. We ...
    • Restricted String Representations 

      Derka, Martin (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-29)
      A string representation of a graph assigns to every vertex a curve in the plane so that two curves intersect if and only if the represented vertices are adjacent. This work investigates string representations of graphs ...
    • Results on Chromatic Polynomials Inspired by a Correlation Inequality of G.E. Farr 

      McKay, Ghislain (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-25)
      In1993 Graham Farr gave a proof of a correlation inequality involving colourings of graphs. His work eventually led to a conjecture that number of colourings of a graph with certain properties gave a log-concave sequence. ...
    • Retinotopic Preservation in Deep Belief Network Visual Learning 

      Lam, Michael (University of Waterloo, 2011-04-29)
      One of the foremost characteristics of the mammalian visual system is the retinotopic mapping observed in the low-level visual processing centres; the spatial pattern of activation in the lateral geniculate nucleus and ...
    • Retrieving Supporting Evidence for Generative Question Answering 

      Huo, Siqing (University of Waterloo, 2023-12-18)
      Current large language models (LLMs) can exhibit near-human levels of performance on many natural language-based tasks, including open-domain question answering. Unfortunately, at this time, they also convincingly hallucinate ...
    • A Review And Analysis Of The Sustainability And Equity Of Social Security Adjustment Mechanisms 

      Andrews, Douglas (University of Waterloo, 2008-10-24)
      This thesis examines stabilizing mechanisms in social security retirement systems (“SSRS”), especially those purporting to be automatic balancing mechanisms (“ABM”). It develops a consistent approach to identifying whether ...
    • Revising Ecological Assumptions About Human Papillomavirus Interactions And Type Replacement 

      Murall, Carmen Lia; McCann, Kevin S.; Bauch, Chris T. (Elsevier, 2014-06-07)
      The controversy over whether vaccine-targeted HPV types will be replaced by other oncogenic, non-vaccine-targeted types remains unresolved. This is in part because little is known about the ecology of HPV types. Patient ...
    • Revisiting Password Rules: Facilitating Human Management of Passwords 

      Zhang-Kennedy, Leah; Chiasson, Sonia; van Oorschot, Paul (IEEE, 2016-06)
      Password rules were established in the context of past security concerns. Recent work in computer security challenges the conventional wisdom of expert password advice, such as change your passwords often, do not reuse ...
    • Revisiting the security model for aggregate signature schemes 

      Lacharité, Marie-Sarah (University of Waterloo, 2014-05-26)
      Aggregate signature schemes combine the digital signatures of multiple users on different messages into one single signature. The Boneh-Gentry-Lynn-Shacham (BGLS) aggregate signature scheme is one such scheme, based on ...
    • Rhyme, Rhythm, and Rhubarb: Using Probabilistic Methods to Analyze Hip Hop, Poetry, and Misheard Lyrics 

      Hirjee, Hussein (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-30)
      While text Information Retrieval applications often focus on extracting semantic features to identify the topic of a document, and Music Information Research tends to deal with melodic, timbral or meta-tagged data of songs, ...
    • Rigidity of near-optimal superdense coding protocols 

      Zhou, Xingyu (University of Waterloo, 2023-09-19)
      Rigidity in quantum information theory refers to the stringent constraints underlying optimal or near-optimal performance in certain quantum tasks. This property plays a crucial role in verifying untrusted quantum devices ...
    • Risk Allocation in Hybrid Pension Plans 

      ZHU, XIAOBAI (University of Waterloo, 2019-09-18)
      Three different hybrid designs are considered in this thesis. Chapter 1 studies the risk management of Cash Balance (CB) pension plans, which are the most popular hybrid plans in the U.S. We show that the simple delta and ...
    • Risk Analysis: Measures of concordance, their compatibility and capital allocation 

      Koike, Takaaki (University of Waterloo, 2020-08-20)
      This thesis addresses various topics in the field of probability theory and statistics with applications in quantitative risk management. The first topic concerns matrix compatibility and attainability problems for ...
