Event History Analysis in Longitudinal Cohort Studies with Intermittent Inspection Times
(University of Waterloo, 20160120)Event history studies based on disease clinic data often face several complications. Specifically, patients visit the clinic irregularly, and the intermittent inspection times depend on the history of diseaserelated ... 
Eventual Durability of ACID Transactions in Database Systems
(University of Waterloo, 20230817)Modern database systems that support ACID transactions, and applications built around these databases, may choose to sacrifice transaction durability for performance when they deem it necessary. While this approach may ... 
Evidence Combination in Hidden Markov Models for Gene Prediction
(University of Waterloo, 2005)This thesis introduces new techniques for finding genes in genomic sequences. Genes are regions of a genome encoding proteins of an organism. Identification of genes in a genome is an important step in the annotation ... 
Evidencebased Software Process Recovery
(University of Waterloo, 20101027)Developing a large software system involves many complicated, varied, and interdependent tasks, and these tasks are typically implemented using a combination of defined processes, semiautomated tools, and ad hoc practices. ... 
Evolution and Architecture of Open Source Software Collections: A Case Study of Debian
(University of Waterloo, 20120829)Software has been studied at a variety of granularities. Code, classes, groups of classes, programs and finally large scale applications have been examined in detail. What lies beyond is the study of software collections ... 
Evolutionary Dynamics of Cancer: Spatial and Heterogeneous Effects
(University of Waterloo, 20170123)Despite significant advances in the study of cancer and associated combination therapeutic treatments, cancer still remains one of the most common and complex oftenterminal diseases. Acquisition of highthroughput ... 
An ExAnte Rational Distributed Resource Allocation System using Transfer of Control Strategies for Preemption with Applications to Emergency Medicine
(University of Waterloo, 20120820)Within the artificial intelligence subﬁeld of multiagent systems, one challenge that arises is determining how to efficiently allocate resources to all agents in a way that maximizes the overall expected utility. In this ... 
Exact and Perturbed FriedmannLemaitre Cosmologies
(University of Waterloo, 20070807)In this thesis we first apply the 1+3 covariant description of general relativity to analyze nfluid FriedmannLemaitre (FL) cosmologies; that is, homogeneous and isotropic cosmologies whose matterenergy content consists ... 
Exact C*algebras and the KirchbergPhillips Nuclear Embedding Theorem
(University of Waterloo, 20190808)A C*algebra A is exact if the functor A ⊗ min (·) preserves short exact sequences. This is equivalent to the algebra A having a nuclear faithful *representation. Exact C*algebras are a class of C*algebras which is ... 
Exact Formulas for Averages of Secular Coefficients
(University of Waterloo, 20210929)We study averages of secular coefficients that frequently appear in random matrix theory. We obtain exact formulas, identities and new asymptotics for these integrals as well as a technique to deal with singularities that ... 
Exact, Approximate, and Online Algorithms for Optimization Problems Arising in DVD Assignment
(University of Waterloo, 20090901)Zip.ca is an online DVD rental company that faces two major operational problems: calculation of the assignment of DVDs to customers every thirty minutes throughout the day and purchasing of new inventory in regular ... 
Exactness and Noncommutative Convexity
(University of Waterloo, 20220902)This thesis studies two separate topics in connection to operator systems theory: the dynamics of locally compact groups, and noncommutative convex geometry. In Chapter 1 we study exactness of locally compact groups as ... 
Examination of Parametric Subharmonic Instability of K₁ Internal Tides Generated by Tidal Flow over a Ridge
(University of Waterloo, 20220926)Internal gravity waves are thought to be a predominant source of mixing in the Earth's oceans. Here, we explore the interplay between two phenomena experienced by internal gravity waves  parametric subharmonic instability ... 
An Examination of Quantum Foundations
(University of Waterloo, 20110901)Quantum foundations is a field of diverse goals and methods. In this thesis, I will present three different approaches to quantum foundations, each emphasizing a different goal or perspective. The causaloid framework has ... 
Examining the consistency between subglacial hydrology and basal friction inversion modeling for Slessor Glacier, East Antarctica.
(University of Waterloo, 20220831)In light of rising global surface temperatures and sealevel rise, it is more important now than ever to understand what role the cryosphere will play in the Earth's evolution. The Antarctic ice sheet contains enough ice ... 
Exception Handling in C∀
(University of Waterloo, 20211004)The C∀ (Cforall) programming language is an evolutionary refinement of the C programming language, adding modern programming features without changing the programming paradigms of C. One of these modern programming features ... 
Excursion Sets and Critical Points of Gaussian Random Fields
(University of Waterloo, 20220902)Modeling the critical points of a Gaussian random field is an important challenge in stochastic geometry. In this thesis, we focus on stationary Gaussian random fields and study the locations and types of the critical ... 
Existence and uniqueness of attracting slow manifolds: An application of the Ważewski principle
(University of Waterloo, 20170123)In this work we present some of the geometric constructs that aid the application of the Ważewski Theorem. To illustrate the procedure the MichaelisMenten mechanism will be considered. We show that M, a slow manifold, ... 
Existence and uniqueness of weak homotopy moment maps
(Elsevier, 20180901)We show that the classical results on the existence and uniqueness of moment maps in symplectic geometry generalize directly to weak homotopy moment maps in multisymplectic geometry. In particular, we show that their ... 
The Existence of Balanced Tournament Designs and Partitioned Balanced Tournament Designs
(University of Waterloo, 2001)A balanced tournament design of order <I>n</I>, BTD(<I>n</I>), defined on a 2<I>n</I>set<I> V</i>, is an arrangement of the all of the (2<I>n</i>2) distinct unordered pairs of elements of <I>V</I> into an <I>n</I> X ...
