    • Cache Design for a Hardware Accelerated Sparse Texture Storage System 

      Yee, Wai Min (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      Hardware texture mapping is essential for real-time rendering. Unfortunately the memory bandwidth and latency often bounds performance in current graphics architectures. Bandwidth consumption can be reduced by ...
    • Cache Oblivious Data Structures 

      Ohashi, Darin (University of Waterloo, 2001)
      This thesis discusses cache oblivious data structures. These are structures which have good caching characteristics without knowing Z, the size of the cache, or L, the length of a cache line. Since the structures do ...
    • Cache-Aware Virtual Page Management 

      Szlavik, Alexander (University of Waterloo, 2013-02-22)
      With contemporary research focusing its attention primarily on benchmark-driven performance evaluation, studying fundamental memory characteristics has gone by the way-side. This thesis presents a systematic study of the ...
    • Cache-Oblivious Searching and Sorting in Multisets 

      Farzan, Arash (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      We study three problems related to searching and sorting in multisets in the cache-oblivious model: Finding the most frequent element (the mode), duplicate elimination and finally multi-sorting. We are interested in ...
    • CAMEO: Explaining Consensus and Expertise Across MOdels 

      Yu, Andy (University of Waterloo, 2024-05-02)
      Explainable AI methods have been proposed to help interpret complex models, e.g., by assigning importance scores to model features or perturbing the features in a way that changes the prediction. These methods apply to one ...
    • Cardinality Estimation in Streaming Graph Data Management Systems 

      Akillioglu, Kerem (University of Waterloo, 2024-02-23)
      Graph processing has become an increasingly popular paradigm for data management systems. Concurrently, there is a pronounced demand for specialized systems dedicated to streaming processing that are essential to address ...
    • Case Studies of a Machine Learning Process for Improving the Accuracy of Static Analysis Tools 

      Zhao, Peng (University of Waterloo, 2016-10-18)
      Static analysis tools analyze source code and report suspected problems as warnings to the user. The use of these tools is a key feature of most modern software development processes; however, the tools tend to generate ...
    • A Case Study of a Very Large Organization 

      Werner, Colin Mark (University of Waterloo, 2012-01-04)
      Very Large Organization (VLO) is an organization that produces hardware and software, which together form products. VLO granted access to data pertaining to seven different products and their development projects. One ...
    • Case Study of Feature-Oriented Requirements Modelling, Applied to an Online Trading System 

      Krulec, Ana (University of Waterloo, 2011-01-12)
      The Feature-Oriented Requirements Modelling (FORM) combines the requirement engineering style structuring of requirements documents with the feature-orientation of the Feature Oriented Software Development, resulting in a ...
    • Causal Sensitivity Analysis for Decision Trees 

      Li, Chengbo (University of Waterloo, 2015-01-15)
      Ventilator assignments in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) are made by medical experts; however, for some patients the relationship between ventilator assignment and patient health status is not well understood. ...
    • CBKR+: A Conceptual Framework for Improving Corpus Based Knowledge Representation 

      Ivkovic, Shabnam (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      In Corpus Based Knowledge Representation [CBKR], limited association capability, that is, no criteria in place to extract substantial associations in the corpus, and lack of support for hypothesis testing and prediction ...
    • Cell Path Reconstruction Using 3D Digital Inpainting 

      Schmieder, Anthony (University of Waterloo, 2013-08-06)
      Digital inpainting is the reconstruction of a missing or damaged region in a digital image. Intensity values in the missing region are approximated using information near the boundary of the region. Some applications include ...
    • A cell-centred finite volume method for the Poisson problem on non-graded quadtrees with second order accurate gradients 

      Batty, Christopher (Elsevier, 2017-02-15)
      This paper introduces a two-dimensional cell-centred finite volume discretization of the Poisson problem on adaptive Cartesian quadtree grids which exhibits second order accuracy in both "the solution and its gradients, ...
    • CGU: A common graph utility for DL Reasoning and Conjunctive Query Optimization 

      Palacios Villa, Jesus Alejandro (University of Waterloo, 2005)
      We consider the overlap between reasoning involved in <em>conjunctive query optimization</em> (CQO) and in tableaux-based approaches to reasoning about subsumption in <em>description logics</em> (DLs). In both cases, an ...
    • Characterizing Hardness in Parameterized Complexity 

      Islam, Tarique (University of Waterloo, 2007-05-18)
      Parameterized complexity theory relaxes the classical notion of tractability and allows to solve some classically hard problems in a reasonably efficient way. However, many problems of interest remain intractable in the ...
    • Characterizing User Search Intent and Behavior for Click Analysis in Sponsored Search 

      Ashkan, Azin (University of Waterloo, 2013-05-24)
      Interpreting user actions to better understand their needs provides an important tool for improving information access services. In the context of organic Web search, considerable effort has been made to model user behavior ...
    • ClaferMPS: Modeling and Optimizing Automotive Electric/Electronic Architectures Using Domain-Specific Languages 

      Khalilov, Eldar (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-23)
      Modern automotive electric/electronic (E/E) architectures are growing to the point where architects can no longer manually predict the effects of their design decisions. Thus, in addition to applying an architecture reference ...
    • Classification and Decision-Theoretic Framework for Detecting and Reporting Unseen Falls 

      Khan, Shehroz (University of Waterloo, 2016-02-18)
      Detecting falls is critical for an activity recognition system to ensure the well being of an individual. However, falls occur rarely and infrequently, therefore sufficient data for them may not be available during training ...
