      Kerner, Ryan (University of Waterloo, 2008-08-29)
      The semi-classical black hole tunnelling method is a useful technique to calculate black hole temperature and understand black hole thermodynamics. I will investigate the black hole tunnelling method in detail. I will ...
    • Black Holes in Pseudo-Topological Gravity 

      Robinson, Brandon (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-05)
      In the following, we build on previous work done on higher derivative gravity, in particular Lovelock gravity. The latter is a family of theories in higher space-time dimensions in which interactions involving higher ...
    • Bohmian Mechanics: Towards Illuminating The Quantum Potential 

      Brown, Matthew (University of Waterloo, 2018-02-20)
      This thesis deals with the theoretical and experimental details of trying to understand and infer the quantum potential from Bohmian mechanics using Bohmian trajectories. In this work, some of the key components of the ...
    • Born Geometry 

      Svoboda, David (University of Waterloo, 2020-04-21)
      In this thesis, we summarize the work which we authored or co-authored during our PhD studies and also present additional details and ideas that are not found elsewhere. The main topic is the study of T-duality in theoretical ...
    • Born Reciprocal Representations of the Quantum Algebra 

      Yargic, Yigit (University of Waterloo, 2021-08-26)
      This thesis addresses the representations of the Weyl algebra of quantum mechanics with an explicitly Born reciprocal structure and the dynamics of physical systems in these representations. In this context, we discuss ...
    • Calibration of a Lattice Model for High-Molecular-Weight Block Copolymer Melts 

      Willis, James; Beardsley, Tom; Matsen, Mark (AIP, 2019-05-06)
      The Morse calibration is applied to a lattice model designed for efficient simulations of two-component polymer melts of high molecular weight. The model allows multiple occupancy per site, which results in high invariant ...
    • Can Lensing Measure The Shape Of Dark Matter Halos? 

      Hussain, Uzair (University of Waterloo, 2012-09-27)
      The aim of this project was to explore the shapes of dark matter halos using high resolution N-body simulations. One of the main aspects explored was how well the shape can be measured through weak lensing. To explore this, ...
    • Canonical Structure and Conservation Laws of General Relativity on Null Surfaces and at Null Infinity 

      Hopfmueller, Florian (University of Waterloo, 2021-01-12)
      The first part of this thesis addresses the canonical structure of general relativity on generic null surfaces. The pre-symplectic potential of metric general relativity, evaluated on a null surface, is decomposed into ...
    • Carbon nanotube electromechanical systems: Non-linear dynamics and self-oscillation 

      Willick, Kyle (University of Waterloo, 2020-05-13)
      This thesis is motivated by the many sensing applications of carbon nanotube (CNT) nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS), both previous state-of-the-art demonstrations and proposed new uses. This research is particularly ...
    • Causal Discovery of Photonic Bell Experiments 

      Daley, Patrick (University of Waterloo, 2020-01-13)
      A causal understanding of a physical theory is vital. They provide profound insights into the implications of the theory and contain the information required to manipulate, not only predict, our surroundings. Unfortunately, ...
    • Causal Models for a Quantum World 

      Ried, Katja Stephanie (University of Waterloo, 2016-05-18)
      Quantum mechanics has achieved unparalleled success as an operational theory, describing a wide range of experiments to remarkable accuracy. However, the physical foundations on which it rests remain as puzzling as they ...
    • Characterisation and Optimization of Ultrashort Laser Pulses 

      Macpherson, James (University of Waterloo, 2003)
      The ultrafast optical regime is defined, as it applies to laser pulses, along with a brief introduction to pulse generation and characterisation technologies. A more extensive description of our particular amplified ...
    • Characterization and Control in Large Hilbert spaces. 

      Ryan, Colm (University of Waterloo, 2008-12-03)
      Computational devices built on and exploiting quantum phenomena have the potential to revolutionize our understanding of computational complexity by being able to solve certain problems faster than the best known classical ...
