Effective Dimensionality Control in Quantitative Finance and Insurance
(University of Waterloo, 20170906)It is wellknown that dimension reduction techniques such as the Brownian bridge, principal component analysis, linear transformation could increase the efficiency of QuasiMonte Carlo (QMC) methods. Caflisch et al. (1997), ... 
Effective Use of SSDs in Database Systems
(University of Waterloo, 20180507)With the advent of solid state drives (SSDs), the storage industry has experienced a revolutionary improvement in I/O performance. Compared to traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), SSDs benefit from shorter I/O latency, ... 
Effects of a Geostrophic Current on the Propagation and Generation of Internal Tides
(University of Waterloo, 20210830)Internal tides (ITs) are ubiquitous in a stratified ocean where they are generated in response to tidal flows incident upon bottom topography. Alongshelf currents or boundary currents are ocean currents commonly observed ... 
The Effects of Confinement on KelvinHelmholtz Billows
(University of Waterloo, 20160115)Turbulence is one of the most interesting and important, yet poorly understood, aspects of fluid mechanics. The transition from an unstable laminar flow to a fully turbulent flow can follow many paths depending on the ... 
Effects of Developmental Heuristics for Natural Language Learning
(University of Waterloo, 2003)Machine learning in natural language has been a widely pursued area of research. However, few learning techniques model themselves after human learning, despite the nature of the task being closely connected to human ... 
The effects of dielectric decrement and finite ion size on differential capacitance of electrolytically gated graphene
(Elsevier, 20180601)We analyze the effects of dielectric decrement and finite ion size in an aqueous electrolyte on the capacitance of a graphene electrode, and make comparisons with the effects of dielectric saturation combined with finite ... 
The Effects of Extrinsic and Intrinsic Noise on a Tumour and a Proposed Metastasis Model
(University of Waterloo, 20151130)Cancer is a ubiquitous disease that afflicts millions of people worldwide and we will undoubtedly encounter it at some point in our lives, whether it be random strangers on the news, or someone much closer. As such, research ... 
The effects of flagellar hook compliance on motility of monotrichous bacteria: A modeling study
(AIP Publishing, 201206)A crucial structure in the motility of flagellated bacteria is the hook, which connects the flagellum filament to the motor in the cell body. Early mathematical models of swimming bacteria assume that the helically shaped ... 
Effects of Personality Traits and Emotional Factors in Pull Request Acceptance.
(University of Waterloo, 20190826)Social interactions in the form of discussion are an indispensable part of collaborative software development. The discussions are essential for developers to share their views and to form a strong relationship with other ... 
Effects of the Dielectric Environment on the Electrical Properties of Graphene
(University of Waterloo, 20130830)This thesis provides the study of graphene’s electrostatic interaction with the substrate surrounding it. Mathematical models based on current experimental configurations of graphene fieldeffect transistors (FET) are ... 
The Effects of the Earth's Rotation on Internal Wave Nearresonant Triads and Weakly Nonlinear Models
(University of Waterloo, 20070824)This thesis investigates the effects of the earth's rotation on internal waves from two perspectives of nonlinear internal wave theory: nearresonant triads and weakly nonlinear models. We apply perturbation theory ... 
The Effects of Time Constraints and Document Excerpts on Relevance Assessing Behavior
(University of Waterloo, 20180830)Assessors who judge the relevance of documents to the search topics and perform the relevance assessment process are one of the main parts of Information Retrieval (IR) sys tems evaluations. They play a significant role ... 
Efficiencybased hprefinement for finite element methods
(University of Waterloo, 20070823)Two efficiencybased grid refinement strategies are investigated for adaptive finite element solution of partial differential equations. In each refinement step, the elements are ordered in terms of decreasing local ...
