    • Duration Data Analysis in Longitudinal Survey 

      Boudreau, Christian (University of Waterloo, 2003)
      Considerable amounts of event history data are collected through longitudinal surveys. These surveys have many particularities or features that are the results of the dynamic nature of the population under study and of ...
    • Dynamic Crowdsourcing Consensus Tasks with Workers That Can Learn 

      Pan, Shengying (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-21)
      Crowdsourcing has become one of the most popular topics in both academia and industry in the past few years. By hiring workers online, task assigners can take advantage of the wisdom of the crowd and solve problems that ...
    • Dynamic Factored Particle Filtering for Context-Specific Correlations 

      Mostinski, Dimitri (University of Waterloo, 2007-05-15)
      In order to control any system one needs to know the system's current state. In many real-world scenarios the state of the system cannot be determined with certainty due to the sensors being noisy or simply missing. In ...
    • Dynamic Magnetic Resonance Elastography 

      Sanchez, Antonio (University of Waterloo, 2010-01-20)
      Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE) is a medical imaging technique used to generate a map of tissue elasticity. The resulting image is known as an elastogram, and gives a quantitative measure of stiffness in the examined ...
    • A dynamic Mover–Stayer model for recurrent event processes subject to resolution 

      Cook, Richard J.; Shen, Hua (Springer US, 2014-07)
      In studies of affective disorder, individuals are often observed to experience recurrent symptomatic exacerbations warranting hospitalization. Interest may lie in modeling the occurrence of such exacerbations over time ...
    • Dynamic Personalization of Gameful Interactive Systems 

      Fortes Tondello, Gustavo (University of Waterloo, 2019-07-17)
      Gameful design, the process of creating a system with affordances for gameful experiences, can be used to increase user engagement and enjoyment of digital interactive systems. It can also be used to create applications ...
    • Dynamic Programming: Salesman to Surgeon 

      Qian, David (University of Waterloo, 2013-05-15)
      Dynamic Programming is an optimization technique used in computer science and mathematics. Introduced in the 1950s, it has been applied to many classic combinatorial optimization problems, such as the Shortest Path Problem, ...
    • Dynamic Resource Provisioning for an Interactive System 

      Lu, Shaowen (University of Waterloo, 2009-06-16)
      In a data centre, server clusters are typically used to provide the required processing capacity to provide acceptable response time performance to interactive applications. The workload of each application may be time-varying. ...
    • A Dynamic Risk-Based Access Control Approach: Model and Implementation 

      Savinov, Sergey (University of Waterloo, 2017-05-18)
      Access control (AC) refers to mechanisms and policies that restrict access to resources, thus regulating access to physical or virtual resources of an information system. AC approaches are used to represent these mechanisms ...
    • Dynamic Scale-out Mechanisms for Partitioned Shared-Nothing Databases 

      Karyakin, Alexey (University of Waterloo, 2011-09-30)
      For a database system used in pay-per-use cloud environments, elastic scaling becomes an essential feature, allowing for minimizing costs while accommodating fluctuations of load. One approach to scalability involves ...
    • Dynamic Security Orchestration System Leveraging Machine Learning 

      Jalalpour, Elaheh (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-20)
      A Content Delivery Network (CDN) employs edge-servers caching content close to end-users to provide high Quality of Service (QoS) in serving digital content. Attacks against edge-servers are known to cause QoS degradation ...
    • Dynamic Storage Provisioning with SLO Guarantees 

      Gaharwar, Prashant (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-25)
      Static provisioning of storage resources may lead to over-provisioning of resources, which increases costs, or under-provisioning, which runs the risk of violating application-level QoS goals. Toward this end, virtualization ...
    • Dynamic Treatment Regimes with Interference 

      JIANG, CONG (University of Waterloo, 2022-08-18)
      Precision medicine describes healthcare in which patient-level data are used to inform treatment decisions. Within this framework, dynamic treatment regimes (DTRs) are sequences of decision rules that take individual patient ...
    • A Dynamic User-Centric Mobile Context Model 

      Chang, Yu-Ling (University of Waterloo, 2010-07-22)
      Context-aware systems can dynamically adapt to user situations to provide smarter services. In general, context refers to the information that can be used to characterize these situations, and context models are deployed ...
    • Dynamic-Occlusion-Aware Risk Identification for Autonomous Vehicles Using Hypergames 

      Kahn, Maximilian (University of Waterloo, 2021-12-17)
      A particular challenge for both autonomous vehicles (AV) and human drivers is dealing with risk associated with dynamic occlusion, i.e., occlusion caused by other vehicles in traffic. In order to overcome this challenge, ...
    • Dynamical Systems in Spiking Neuromorphic Hardware 

      Voelker, Aaron Russell (University of Waterloo, 2019-05-10)
      Dynamical systems are universal computers. They can perceive stimuli, remember, learn from feedback, plan sequences of actions, and coordinate complex behavioural responses. The Neural Engineering Framework (NEF) provides ...
    • Dynamical Systems Methods Applied to the Michaelis-Menten and Lindemann Mechanisms 

      Calder, Matthew Stephen (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-06)
      In the first part of this thesis, we will explore an iterative procedure to determine the detailed asymptotic behaviour of solutions of a certain class of nonlinear vector differential equations which approach a nonlinear ...
    • Dynamics And Control Of Foot-And-Mouth Disease In Endemic Countries: A Pair Approximation Model 

      Ringa, Notice; Bauch, Chris T. (Elsevier, 2014-09-21)
      Previous mathematical models of spatial farm-to-farm transmission of foot and mouth disease (FMD) have explored the impacts of control measures such as culling and vaccination during a single outbreak in a country normally ...
    • Dynamics of a Diffusive Nutrient-Phytoplankton-Zooplankton Model with Spatio-temporal Delay 

      Tao, Yiwen; Campbell, Sue Ann; Poulin, Francis J. (SIAM, 2021-01)
      We study a diffusive nutrient-phytoplankton-zooplankton (NPZ) model with spatio-temporal delay. The closed nature of the system allows the formulation of a conservation law of biomass that governs the ecosystem. We advance ...
