    • A Practical Method for High-Resolution Embedded Liquid Surfaces 

      Goldade, Ryan; Batty, Christopher; Wojtan, Chris (Wiley, 2016-05-01)
      Combining high-resolution level set surface tracking with lower resolution physics is an inexpensive method for achieving highly detailed liquid animations. Unfortunately, the inherent resolution mismatch introduces several ...
    • A practical octree liquid simulator with adaptive surface resolution 

      Ando, Ryoichi; Batty, Christopher (Association for Computing Machinery, 2020-07)
      We propose a new adaptive liquid simulation framework that achieves highly detailed behavior with reduced implementation complexity. Prior work has shown that spatially adaptive grids are efficient for simulating large-scale ...
    • Practical Private Information Retrieval 

      Olumofin, Femi George (University of Waterloo, 2011-08-26)
      In recent years, the subject of online privacy has been attracting much interest, especially as more Internet users than ever are beginning to care about the privacy of their online activities. Privacy concerns are even ...
    • Practical Systems for Personal Thermal Comfort 

      Rabbani Esfahani, Ali Mohammad (University of Waterloo, 2016-04-15)
      Conventional centralized HVAC systems cannot provide office workers with personalized thermal comfort because workers in a single zone share a common air handling unit and thus a single air temperature. Moreover, they heat ...
    • Practices Surrounding Social Use of the Nintendo DS Handheld Gaming System 

      Szentgyorgyi, Christine (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-21)
      Ad-hoc wireless networking has recently become a standard feature of handheld video gaming systems. This capability, along with the portability of the devices, increases the number of places where people can easily engage ...
    • Predicting Endpoint of Goal-Directed Motion in Modern Desktop Interfaces using Motion Kinematics 

      Ruiz, Jaime (University of Waterloo, 2012-04-27)
      Researchers who study pointing facilitation have identified the ability to identify--during motion--the likely target of a user's pointing gesture, as a necessary precursor to pointing facilitation in modern computer ...
    • Predicting Repository Upkeep with Textual Personality Analysis 

      Sachs, Alexander (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-29)
      GitHub is an excellent democratic source of software. Unlike traditional work groups however, GitHub repositories are primarily anonymous and virtual. Traditional strategies for improving the productivity of a work group ...
    • Predicting Short-Term Water Consumption for Multi-Family Residences 

      Medina, Irish (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-20)
      Smart water meters have been installed across Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, to measure the water consumption of households in the area. Using this water consumption data, we develop machine learning and deep learning ...
    • Predicting Test Suite Effectiveness for Java Programs 

      Inozemtseva, Laura Michelle McLean (University of Waterloo, 2012-07-26)
      The coverage of a test suite is often used as a proxy for its effectiveness. However, previous studies that investigated the influence of code coverage on test suite effectiveness have failed to reach a consensus about ...
    • Predicting the Spectrum Quality and Digestive Enzyme for Shotgun Proteomics 

      Gholamizoj, Soroosh (University of Waterloo, 2022-05-03)
      In proteomics, database search programs are routinely used for peptide identification from tandem mass spectrometry data. However, many low-quality spectra cannot be interpreted by any programs. Meanwhile, certain high-quality ...
    • Prediction and Planning in Dynamical Systems with Underlying Markov Decision Processes 

      Banijamali, Seyedershad (University of Waterloo, 2021-08-24)
      Predicting the future state of a scene with moving objects is a task that humans handle with ease. This is due to our understanding about the dynamics of the objects in the scene and the way they interact. However, teaching ...
    • Prediction of AL Amyloidosis Using Deep Learning 

      Murali, Anupa (University of Waterloo, 2023-04-27)
      AL amyloidosis (amyloid light chain or primary amyloidosis) is a rare protein disorder that can be potentially fatal or can cause permanent damage to the organs in the body, especially in cases where the diagnosis does not ...
    • A Preference Judgment Interface for Authoritative Assessment 

      Seifikar, Mahsa (University of Waterloo, 2023-02-06)
      For offline evaluation of information retrieval systems, preference judgments have been demonstrated to be a superior alternative to graded or binary relevance judgments. In contrast to graded judgments, where each ...
    • Prepositional Phrase Attachment Disambiguation Using WordNet 

      Spitzer, Claus (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      In this thesis we use a knowledge-based approach to disambiguating prepositional phrase attachments in English sentences. This method was first introduced by S. M. Harabagiu. The Penn Treebank corpus is used as ...
    • Prescriptive Semantics For Big-Step Modelling Languages 

      Esmaeilsabzali, Shahram (University of Waterloo, 2011-02-22)
      With the popularity of model-driven methodologies and the abundance of modelling languages, a major question for a modeller is: Which language is suitable for modelling a system under study? To answer this question, one ...
    • Preserving Geometry and Topology for Fluid Flows with Thin Obstacles and Narrow Gaps 

      Azevedo, Vinicius C.; Batty, Christopher; Oliveira, Manuel M. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2016-07-01)
      Fluid animation methods based on Eulerian grids have long struggled to resolve flows involving narrow gaps and thin solid features. Past approaches have artificially inflated or voxelized boundaries, although this sacrifices ...
    • The Prevalence and Impact of Persistent Ambiguity in Software Requirements Specification Documents 

      Ribeiro, Cristina (University of Waterloo, 2016-12-21)
      Despite a large amount of research in methods and tools for avoiding and detecting requirements ambiguity, recent studies have indicated that requirements ambiguity seems to be resolved through multiple inspections and ...
    • Prioritizing Features Through Categorization: An Approach to Resolving Feature Interactions 

      Zimmer, Patsy Ann (University of Waterloo, 2007-09-27)
      Feature interactions occur when one feature interferes with the intended operation of another feature. To detect such interactions, each new feature must be tested against existing features. The detected interactions must ...
