    • Adaptive CPU Allocation for Resource Isolation and Work Conservation 

      Guo, Cong (University of Waterloo, 2020-07-06)
      Consolidating multiple workloads on the same physical machine is an effective measure for utilizing resources efficiently and reducing costs. The main objective is to execute multiple demanding workloads using no more than ...
    • Adaptive Cross-Project Bug Localization with Graph Learning 

      Arumugam, Venkatraman (University of Waterloo, 2022-06-07)
      Bug localization is the process of identifying the source code files associated with a bug report. This is important because it allows developers to focus their efforts on fixing the bugs than finding the root cause of ...
    • Adaptive Data Storage and Placement in Distributed Database Systems 

      Abebe, Michael (University of Waterloo, 2022-09-01)
      Distributed database systems are widely used to provide scalable storage, update and query facilities for application data. Distributed databases primarily use data replication and data partitioning to spread load across ...
    • Adaptive Fusion Techniques for Effective Multimodal Deep Learning 

      Sahu, Gaurav (University of Waterloo, 2020-08-28)
      Effective fusion of data from multiple modalities, such as video, speech, and text, is a challenging task due to the heterogeneous nature of multimodal data. In this work, we propose fusion techniques that aim to model ...
    • Adaptive Human-Chatbot Interactions: Contextual Factors, Variability Design and Levels of Automation 

      Melo dos Santos, Glaucia (University of Waterloo, 2023-12-05)
      The landscape of software development is undergoing a significant transformation characterized by various factors. A notable shift is the surging demand for software developers, driven by industries' increasing reliance ...
    • Adaptive policies and drawdown problems in insurance risk models 

      Li, Shu (University of Waterloo, 2015-08-31)
      Ruin theory studies an insurer's solvency risk, and to quantify such a risk, a stochastic process is used to model the insurer's surplus process. In fact, research on ruin theory dates back to the pioneer works of Lundberg ...
    • Adaptive Range Counting and Other Frequency-Based Range Query Problems 

      Wilkinson, Bryan T. (University of Waterloo, 2012-05-18)
      We consider variations of range searching in which, given a query range, our goal is to compute some function based on frequencies of points that lie in the range. The most basic such computation involves counting the ...
    • Adaptive User Authentication on Mobile Devices 

      Chen, Jiayi (University of Waterloo, 2022-07-19)
      Modern mobile devices allow users to access various applications and services anywhere. However, high mobility also exposes mobile devices to device loss, unauthorized access, and many other risks. Existing studies have ...
    • An adaptive variational finite difference framework for efficient symmetric octree viscosity 

      Goldade, Ryan; Wang, Yipeng; Aanjaneya, Mridul; Batty, Christopher (ACM, 2019-07)
      While pressure forces are often the bottleneck in (near-)inviscid fluid simulations, viscosity can impose orders of magnitude greater computational costs at lower Reynolds numbers. We propose an implicit octree finite ...
    • Adding Reference Immutability to Scala 

      Zhao, Yaoyu (University of Waterloo, 2023-07-10)
      Scala is a multi-paradigm programming language combining the power of functional and object-oriented programming. While Scala has many features promoting immutability, it lacks a built-in mechanism for controlling and ...
    • Addressing the Issues of Coalitions and Collusion in Multiagent Systems 

      Kerr, Reid Charles (University of Waterloo, 2013-05-22)
      In the field of multiagent systems, trust and reputation systems are intended to assist agents in finding trustworthy partners with whom to interact. Earlier work of ours identified in theory a number of security ...
    • AddressWatcher: Automatic Memory Leak Fixing 

      Murali, Aniruddhan (University of Waterloo, 2021-12-17)
      Automatic bug fixing has become a promising direction over manual fixing of bugs. In this work, we focus on a specific bug: Memory Leaks. We propose an automatic approach to suggest memory leak fixes in C/C++ programs ...
    • Admission Control for Independently-authored Realtime Applications 

      Kroeger, Robert (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      This thesis presents the LiquiMedia operating system architecture. LiquiMedia is specialized to schedule multimedia applications. Because they generate output for a human observer, multimedia applications such as ...
    • ADMM for SDP Relaxation of GP 

      Sun, Hao (University of Waterloo, 2016-08-30)
      We consider the problem of partitioning the set of nodes of a graph G into k sets of given sizes in order to minimize the cut obtained after removing the k-th set. This is a variant of the well-known vertex separator ...
    • Advanced Concepts in Asynchronous Exception Handling 

      Krischer, Roy (University of Waterloo, 2011-01-21)
      Asynchronous exception handling is a useful and sometimes necessary alternative form of communication among threads. This thesis examines and classifies general concepts related to asynchrony, asynchronous propagation ...
    • Advancements in the Elicitation and Aggregation of Private Information 

      Carvalho, Arthur (University of Waterloo, 2014-08-28)
      There are many situations where one might be interested in eliciting and aggregating the private information of a group of agents. For example, a recommendation system might suggest recommendations based on the aggregate ...
    • Advancing Antibody Design: Integrating Protein Language Models for Enhanced Computational Strategies 

      Jamialahmadi, Benyamin (University of Waterloo, 2024-01-25)
      Antibodies, or immunoglobulins, are integral to the immune response, playing a crucial role in recognizing and neutralizing external threats such as pathogens. The design of these molecules, however, is complex due to the ...
