Nonlinear Dimensionality Reduction by Manifold Unfolding
(University of Waterloo, 2013-09-27)
Every second, an enormous volume of data is being gathered from various sources and stored in huge data banks. Most of the time, monitoring a data source requires several parallel measurements, which form a high-dimensional ...
Fault Localization in All-Optical Mesh Networks
(University of Waterloo, 2013-05-23)
Fault management is a challenging task in all-optical wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks. However, fast fault localization for shared risk link groups (SRLGs) with multiple links is essential for building a ...
Nonlinear Wave Propagation in Brass Instruments
(University of Waterloo, 2013-01-25)
The study of wave production and propagation is a common phenomenon seen within a variety of math and physics problems. This thesis in particular will investigate the production and propagation of sound waves through musical ...
Coevolution Of Risk Perception, Sexual Behaviour, And Hiv Transmission In An Agent-Based Model
Risk perception shapes individual behaviour, and is in turn shaped by the consequences of that behaviour. Here we explore this dynamics in the context of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) spread. We construct a simplified ...

Single Commodity Flow Algorithms for Lifts of Graphic and Cographic Matroids
(University of Waterloo, 2013-01-23)
Consider a binary matroid M given by its matrix representation. We show that if M is a lift of a graphic or a cographic matroid, then in polynomial time we can either solve the single commodity flow problem for M or find ...
Quotient Complexity of Ideal Languages
A language L over an alphabet Σ is a right (left) ideal if it satisfies L=LΣ∗ (L=Σ∗L). It is a two-sided ideal if L=Σ∗LΣ∗, and an all-sided ideal if L=Σ∗L, the shuffle of Σ∗ with L. Ideal languages are not only of interest ...
Three Dimensional Hydrodynamic Modelling of Lake Erie: Kelvin Wave Propagation and Potential Effects of Climate Change on Thermal Structure and Dissolved Oxygen
(University of Waterloo, 2013-07-25)
This thesis investigates physical processes in Lake Erie, a large, shallow mid-latitude lake, from two perspectives: climate change impacts on the thermal structure and dissolved oxygen concentration and small-scale eddy ...
Space-Efficient Data Structures for Information Retrieval
(University of Waterloo, 2013-04-30)
The amount of data that people and companies store has grown exponentially over the last few years. Storing this information alone is not enough, because in order to make it useful we need to be able to efficiently search ...
Addressing the Issues of Coalitions and Collusion in Multiagent Systems
(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 ...
