      Heard, Andrew (University of Waterloo, 2016-02-17)
      With billions of WiFi devices now in use, and growing, combined with the rising popularity of high-bandwidth applications, such as streaming video, demands on WiFi networks continue to rise. To increase performance for ...
    • Tabular Abstraction, Editing, and Formatting 

      Wang, Xinxin (University of Waterloo, 2016-09-29)
      This dissertation investigates the composition of high-quality tables with the use of electronic tools. A generic model is designed to support the different stages of tabular composition, including the editing of logical ...
    • Tagger: Enhance Database Search Tools with De Novo Sequencing Tags 

      Tang, Qi (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-06)
      Tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) is widely used in proteomics nowadays to identify peptides and proteins from a sequence database. In a classic procedure of MS/MS protein identification, proteins are digested into short ...
    • Task-Centric User Interfaces 

      Lafreniere, Benjamin J. (University of Waterloo, 2014-05-22)
      Software applications for design and creation typically contain hundreds or thousands of commands, which collectively give users enormous expressive power. Unfortunately, rich feature sets also take a toll on usability. ...
    • TCP Connection Management Mechanisms for Improving Internet Server Performance 

      Shukla, Amol (University of Waterloo, 2005)
      This thesis investigates TCP connection management mechanisms in order to understand the behaviour and improve the performance of Internet servers during overload conditions such as flash crowds. We study several ...
    • Techniques and heuristics for improving the visual design of software agreements 

      Kay, Matthew (University of Waterloo, 2010-09-10)
      End users must regularly agree to lengthy software agreements prior to installing software or using software services. However, despite the fact that these agreements contain terms of direct concern to users—e.g., data ...
    • Techniques for creating ground-truthed sketch corpora 

      MacLean, Scott (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-26)
      The problem of recognizing handwritten mathematics notation has been studied for over forty years with little practical success. The poor performance of math recognition systems is due, at least in part, to a lack of ...
    • Techniques for Quantum Computing 

      Kaye, Phillip (University of Waterloo, 2007-09-21)
      This thesis is about techniques for quantum computing. A common theme throughout this work is the examination of how quantum algorithms and protocols might be implemented in practice. I explore this question at the level ...
    • Temporal Logic Model Checking as Automated Theorem Proving 

      Vakili, Amirhossein (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-19)
      Model checking is an automatic technique for the verification of temporal properties of a system. In this technique, a system is represented as a labelled graph and the specification as a temporal logic formula. The core ...
    • Territoriality and Behaviour On and Around Large Vertical Publicly-Shared Displays 

      Azad, Alec (University of Waterloo, 2012-06-07)
      Large displays and information kiosks are becoming increasingly common installations in public venues to provide an efficient self-serve means for patrons to access information and/or services. They have evolved over a ...
    • Tessellating Algebraic Curves and Surfaces Using A-Patches 

      Luk, Curtis (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-16)
      This work approaches the problem of triangulating algebraic curves/surfaces with a subdivision-style algorithm using A-Patches. An implicit algebraic curve is converted from the monomial basis to the bivariate Bernstein-Bezier ...
    • Test collections for web-scale datasets using Dynamic Sampling 

      Singh, Anmol (University of Waterloo, 2022-01-17)
      Dynamic Sampling is a non-uniform statistical sampling strategy based on S-CAL, a high-recall retrieval algorithm. It is used for the construction of statistical test collections for evaluating information retrieval ...
    • Test-Time Training for Image Inpainting 

      Ghiro, Genseric (University of Waterloo, 2022-06-21)
      Image inpainting is the task of filling missing regions in images with plausible and coherent content. The usual process involves training a CNN on a large collection of examples that it can learn from, to later apply this ...
    • Testing Submodularity 

      Bommireddi, Venkata Abhinav (University of Waterloo, 2017-09-28)
      We show that for any constants $\epsilon > 0$ and $p \ge 1$, given oracle access to an unknown function $f : \{0,1\}^n \to [0,1]$ it is possible to determine if the function is submodular or is $\epsilon$-far from every ...
    • Testing vertex connectivity of bowtie 1-plane graphs 

      Murali, Karthik (University of Waterloo, 2022-07-18)
      A separating set of a connected graph $G$ is a set of vertices $S$ such that $G-S$ is disconnected. $S$ is a minimum separating set of $G$ if there is no separating set of $G$ with fewer vertices than $S$. The size of a ...
    • Testing, Learning, Sampling, Sketching 

      Harms, Nathaniel (University of Waterloo, 2022-08-22)
      We study several problems about sublinear algorithms, presented in two parts. Part I: Property testing and learning. There are two main goals of research in property testing and learning theory. The first is to understand ...
    • Tetrahedral Embedded Boundary Methods for Accurate and Flexible Adaptive Fluids 

      Batty, Christopher; Xenos, Stefan; Houston, Ben (Wiley, 2010-05)
      When simulating fluids, tetrahedral methods provide flexibility and ease of adaptivity that Cartesian grids find difficult to match. However, this approach has so far been limited by two conflicting requirements. First, ...
    • Text Mining to Understand Gender Issues: Stories from The Red Pill, Men's Rights, and Feminism Movements 

      Khan, Abeer (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-28)
      Addressing gender issues has become important worldwide. The United Nations (UN) endorses big data projects as a valuable tool to monitor its gender-related development goals. In this thesis, we first motivate the examination ...
    • Themelio: a new blockchain paradigm 

      Dong, Yuhao (University of Waterloo, 2023-10-10)
      Public blockchains hold great promise in building protocols that uphold security properties like transparency and consistency based on internal, incentivized cryptoeconomic mechanisms rather than preexisting trust in ...
    • Theoretical foundations for efficient clustering 

      Kushagra, Shrinu (University of Waterloo, 2019-06-07)
      Clustering aims to group together data instances which are similar while simultaneously separating the dissimilar instances. The task of clustering is challenging due to many factors. The most well-studied is the high ...
