    • 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 VISUALIZATIONS: Developing a Framework for Crowd-Based Simulations 

      Liu, Ao (Leo) (University of Waterloo, 2020-01-21)
      Since its conception in the 1960s, digital computation has experienced both exponential growth in power and reduction in cost. This has allowed the production of relatively cheap electronics, which are now integrated ...
    • A Dynamic Vocabulary Speech Recognizer Using Real-Time, Associative-Based Learning 

      Purdy, Trevor (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      Conventional speech recognizers employ a training phase during which many of their parameters are configured - including vocabulary selection, feature selection, and decision mechanism tailoring to these selections. After ...
    • Dynamic Weighing of Non-Singulated Objects Using a Grid of Decoupled Platforms 

      Maassarani, Bilal (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-20)
      Weighing systems exist in various sizes and forms to meet the persistent demand for measuring the mass of objects. Current solutions do not offer a system that can dynamically weigh packages moving in a non-singulated and ...
    • Dynamic Weight Estimation of Non-Singulated Objects 

      Sayeed, Ayeda (University of Waterloo, 2018-08-21)
      Weight estimation is a common practice throughout many industries, though it typically requires that the objects to be weighed remain motionless. More often than not, it is beneficial to allow objects to move freely through ...
    • 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 Properties of Dark Matter Halo Mergers 

      Berrouet, Anael (University of Waterloo, 2015-09-29)
      This thesis examines the nature of mixing and heating during the merging of single, isolated dark matter halos, as well as a short discussion of the statistical nature of repeated mergers in a cosmological setting. A small ...
    • 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 a Piano Action Mechanism 

      Izadbakhsh, Adel (University of Waterloo, 2007-06-21)
      The piano action is the mechanism that transforms the finger force applied to a key into the motion of a hammer that strikes a piano string. This thesis focuses on improving the fidelity of the dynamic model of a grand ...
    • Dynamics and Inhibition of Class II Fructose 1,6-bisphosphate Aldolase 

      Labbe, Genevieve (University of Waterloo, 2009-04-24)
      It has been suggested for many decades that the essential and ubiquitous enzyme fructose 1,6-bisphosphate aldolase (FBA) could be a good drug target against bacteria and fungi, since lower organisms possess a metal-dependent ...
    • Dynamics and Model-Based Control of Balance Recovery in Humans Using Lower-Limb Exoskeletons 

      Inkol, Keaton (University of Waterloo, 2023-12-22)
      In the past decade, powered robotic lower-limb exoskeletons have emerged as an exciting technological advancement, offering enhancements in mobility and quality of life for individuals with physical impairments. While the ...
    • Dynamics and Model-Based Control of Electric Power Steering Systems 

      Mehrabi, Naser (University of Waterloo, 2014-10-03)
      Many automobile manufacturers are switching to Electric Power Steering (EPS) systems for their better performance and cost advantages over traditional Hydraulic Power Steering (HPS) systems. EPS compared to HPS offer lower ...
    • Dynamics and Model-Predictive Anti-Jerk Control of Connected Electric Vehicles 

      Batra, Mohit (University of Waterloo, 2018-02-14)
      Electric Vehicles (EVs) develop high torque at low speeds, resulting in a high rate of acceleration. However, the rapid rise in torque of an electric motor creates undesired torsional oscillations, with vehicle jerk arising ...
    • Dynamics and phases of matter in open quantum many-body systems 

      Sang, Shengqi (University of Waterloo, 2024-06-24)
      The thesis is divided into two parts, both focusing on the topic of open quantum many-body systems. The first part explores the properties of quantum circuits interspersed with measurements. Tuned by the frequency of ...
    • Dynamics of a Three_Wheel Vehicle with Tadpole Design 

      Zandieh, Azadeh (University of Waterloo, 2015-01-15)
      This study investigates the effect of applying camber angle on the handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort of a three-wheeled vehicle, which has two wheels in the front and one in the back, known as a tadpole design. ...
    • The Dynamics of Carbon and Nitrogen Stable Isotope Analysis of Aquatic Organisms within the Grand River Watershed 

      Loomer, Heather Anne (University of Waterloo, 2009-01-28)
