    • BSML-mbeddr: Integrating Semantically Congurable State-Machine Models in a C Programming Environment 

      Luo, Zhaoyi; Atlee, Joanne M. (ACM, 2016-11)
      In model-driven engineering, developers express their solutions in domain-specific modelling languages (DSLs) that support domain-specific abstractions. Big-Step Modelling Languages (BSML) is a family of extended state-machine ...
    • Budget-Constrained Optimal Insurance with an Upper Limit on the Insurer's Exposure 

      Coke, Oma (University of Waterloo, 2021-01-13)
      This thesis studies the problem of budget-constrained optimal insurance indemnification when the insurer imposes an upper limit on disbursement. In balancing the trade-off between the cost of paying the insurance premium ...

      Tracey, Justin (University of Waterloo, 2017-10-30)
      Tor is the most popular tool for providing online anonymity. It is used by journalists, activists, and privacy-conscious individuals to provide low-latency private access to the Internet. However, Tor’s specific design and ...
    • Building a Framework for High-performance In-memory Message-Oriented Middleware 

      Hoang, Huy (University of Waterloo, 2019-11-28)
      Message-Oriented Middleware (MOM) is a popular class of software used in many distributed applications, ranging from business systems and social networks to gaming and streaming media services. As workloads continue to ...
    • Building a larger class of graphs for efficient reconfiguration of vertex colouring 

      Merkel, Owen (University of Waterloo, 2020-05-13)
      A $k$-colouring of a graph $G$ is an assignment of at most $k$ colours to the vertices of $G$ so that adjacent vertices are assigned different colours. The reconfiguration graph of the $k$-colourings, $\mathcal{R}_k(G)$, ...
    • Building Efficient Software to Support Content Delivery Services 

      Cassell, Benjamin (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-28)
      Many content delivery services use key components such as web servers, databases, and key-value stores to serve content over the Internet. These services, and their component systems, face unique modern challenges. Services ...
    • Building Networks in the Face of Uncertainty 

      Gupta, Shubham (University of Waterloo, 2011-08-26)
      The subject of this thesis is to study approximation algorithms for some network design problems in face of uncertainty. We consider two widely studied models of handling uncertainties - Robust Optimization and Stochastic ...
    • Bulk Scattering Approximations for Collimated Light Transmitted through Paper 

      Chen, Tenn Francis (University of Waterloo, 2009-01-21)
      Paper is a complex fibrous material whose production involves substantial amounts of natural and industrial resources. To reduce its manufacturing costs, the pulp and paper industry often employs optical technology such ...
    • Business Policy Modeling and Enforcement in Relational Database Systems 

      Ataullah, Ahmed Ayaz (University of Waterloo, 2014-05-12)
      Database systems maintain integrity of the stored information by ensuring that modifications to the database comply with constraints designed by the administrators. As the number of users and applications sharing a common ...
    • Cache Design for a Hardware Accelerated Sparse Texture Storage System 

      Yee, Wai Min (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      Hardware texture mapping is essential for real-time rendering. Unfortunately the memory bandwidth and latency often bounds performance in current graphics architectures. Bandwidth consumption can be reduced by ...
    • Cache Oblivious Data Structures 

      Ohashi, Darin (University of Waterloo, 2001)
      This thesis discusses cache oblivious data structures. These are structures which have good caching characteristics without knowing Z, the size of the cache, or L, the length of a cache line. Since the structures do ...
    • Cache-Aware Virtual Page Management 

      Szlavik, Alexander (University of Waterloo, 2013-02-22)
      With contemporary research focusing its attention primarily on benchmark-driven performance evaluation, studying fundamental memory characteristics has gone by the way-side. This thesis presents a systematic study of the ...
    • Cache-Oblivious Searching and Sorting in Multisets 

      Farzan, Arash (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      We study three problems related to searching and sorting in multisets in the cache-oblivious model: Finding the most frequent element (the mode), duplicate elimination and finally multi-sorting. We are interested in ...
    • Calcium Transport and Regulation in Male and Female Rat Kidney 

      Hakimi, Shervin (University of Waterloo, 2023-05-16)
      Calcium is an essential mineral that plays a critical role in many biological processes, such as muscle contraction, nerve function, and bone health. However, maintaining the right balance of calcium in the body is crucial ...
    • CAMEO: Explaining Consensus and Expertise Across MOdels 

      Yu, Andy (University of Waterloo, 2024-05-02)
      Explainable AI methods have been proposed to help interpret complex models, e.g., by assigning importance scores to model features or perturbing the features in a way that changes the prediction. These methods apply to one ...
    • The Capacitated Matroid Median Problem 

      Kalhan, Sanchit (University of Waterloo, 2018-05-18)
