      Soltan Ghoraie, Laleh (University of Waterloo, 2015-08-20)
      Protein crystals populate diverse conformational ensembles. Despite much evidence that there is widespread conformational polymorphism in protein side chains, most of the xray crystallography data are modelled by single ...
    • New Approaches to Protein NMR Automation 

      Alipanahi Ramandi, Babak (University of Waterloo, 2011-11-16)
      The three-dimensional structure of a protein molecule is the key to understanding its biological and physiological properties. A major problem in bioinformatics is to efficiently determine the three-dimensional structures ...
    • New Approaches to Protein Structure Prediction 

      Li, Shuai Cheng (University of Waterloo, 2009-11-06)
      Protein structure prediction is concerned with the prediction of a protein's three dimensional structure from its amino acid sequence. Such predictions are commonly performed by searching the possible structures and ...
    • New Design and Analysis Techniques for Post-Quantum Cryptography 

      Eaton, Edward (University of Waterloo, 2022-09-16)
      Due to the threat of scalable quantum computation breaking existing public-key cryptography, interest in post-quantum cryptography has exploded in the past decade. There are two key aspects to the mitigation of the quantum ...
    • A New Measure For Clustering Model Selection 

      McCrosky, Jesse (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-20)
      A new method for determining the number of k-means clusters in a given data set is presented. The algorithm is developed from a theoretical perspective and then its implementation is examined and compared to existing solutions.
    • New methods for Quantum Compiling 

      Kliuchnikov, Vadym (University of Waterloo, 2014-04-30)
      The efficiency of compiling high-level quantum algorithms into instruction sets native to quantum computers defines the moment in the future when we will be able to solve interesting and important problems on quantum ...
    • A New Optimality Measure for Distance Dominating Sets 

      Simjour, Narges (University of Waterloo, 2006)
        We study the problem of finding the smallest power of an input graph that has <em>k</em> disjoint dominating sets, where the <em>i</em>th power of an input graph <em>G</em> is constructed by adding edges between pairs ...
    • Niceness assumptions for Learning Algorithms 

      Kushagra, Shrinu (University of Waterloo, 2014-08-01)

    • No Zombie Types: Liveness-Based Justification For Monotonic Gradual Types 

      Zi, Yangtian (University of Waterloo, 2021-08-24)
      Gradual type systems with the monotonic dynamic semantics, such as HiggsCheck implementing SafeTypeScript, are able to achieve decent performance, making them a viable option for JavaScript programmers seeking run-time-checkable ...
    • NOCH: A framework for biologically plausible models of neural motor control 

      DeWolf, Travis (University of Waterloo, 2010-01-20)
      This thesis examines the neurobiological components of the motor control system and relates it to current control theory in order to develop a novel framework for models of motor control in the brain. The presented framework ...
    • The non-injective hidden shift problem 

      Gharibi, Mirmojtaba (University of Waterloo, 2012-01-19)
      In this work, we mostly concentrate on the hidden shift problem for non-injective functions. It is worthwhile to know that the query complexity of the non-injective hidden shift problem is exponential in the worst case by ...
    • A Non-Intersecting R-Tree 

      Langendoen, Kyle Jacob (University of Waterloo, 2021-05-12)
      Indexes for multidimensional data based on the R-Tree are popularly used by databases for a wide range of applications. Such index trees support point and range queries but are costly to construct over datasets of millions ...
