Early Language Learning is a Good Model for Studying Early User Interface Learning
(University of Waterloo, 2005)To date, the selfrevealing interface has been the elusive holy grail of the user interface community. This research advocates the use of early language learning as a model for early user interface learning. This model ... 
The Early Universe: New Aspects of Cuscuton Theory, Modified Dispersion Relations and Pulsar Constraints on Vacuum Noise
(University of Waterloo, 20171026)The modern cosmology started blossoming in the early 1900s, with the theoretical framework provided by Einstein's general relativity. Soon after that, with observational discoveries such as expansion of cosmos by Hubble ... 
Early Warning Signals of Vaccine Scares.
(University of Waterloo, 20160926)There exists strong evidence that vaccines are extremely effective in the prevention of pediatric infectious disease, yet despite this evidence, vaccine refusal is still popular amongst some parents. Existing mathematical ... 
The Eberlein Compactification of Locally Compact Groups
(University of Waterloo, 20130124)A compact semigroup is, roughly, a semigroup compactification of a locally compact group if it contains a dense homomorphic image of the group. The theory of semigroup compactifications has been developed in connection ... 
Economic Pricing of MortalityLinked Securities
(University of Waterloo, 20120926)In previous research on pricing mortalitylinked securities, the noarbitrage approach is often used. However, this method, which takes market prices as given, is difficult to implement in today's embryonic market where ... 
Edge coloring multigraphs without small dense subsets
(Elsevier, 20151206)One consequence of a longstanding conjecture of Goldberg and Seymour about the chromatic index of multigraphs would be the following statement. Suppose $G$ is a multigraph with maximum degree $\Delta$, such that no vertex ... 
Edge State Transfer
(University of Waterloo, 20190111)Let G be a graph and let t be a positive real number. Then the evolution of the continuous quantum walk defined on G is described by the transition matrix U(t)=exp(itH).The matrix H is called Hamiltonian. So far the most ... 
EdgeX: Edge Replication for Web Applications
(University of Waterloo, 20151013)Global web applications face the problem of high network latency due to their need to communicate with distant data centers. Many applications use edge networks for caching images, CSS, javascript, and other static content ... 
Effcient Simulation of MessagePassing in DistributedMemory Architectures
(University of Waterloo, 1996)In this thesis we propose a distributedmemory parallelcomputer simulation system called PUPPET (Performance Under a PseudoParallel EnvironmenT). It allows the evaluation of parallel programs run in a pseudoparallel ... 
Effect of a Mobile Phone Intervention on Quitting Smoking in a Young Adult Population of Smokers: Randomized Controlled Trial
(JMIR, 20181023)Background: Digital mobile technology presents a promising medium for reaching young adults with smoking cessation interventions because they are the heaviest users of this technology. Objective: The aim of this study ... 
The effect of omitted covariates in marginal and partially conditional recurrent event analyses
(Springer, 20190401)There have been many advances in statistical methodology for the analysis of recurrent event data in recent years. Multiplicative semiparametric ratebased models are widely used in clinical trials, as are more general ... 
Effect of Prevalence on Relevance Assessing Behaviour
(University of Waterloo, 20110829)Relevance assessing is an important part of information retrieval (IR) evaluation in addition to being something that all users of IR systems must do as part of their search for relevant documents. In this thesis, we present ... 
The Effect of TimeVarying Boundary Conditions on the Generation of Sum and Difference Frequency Tones in a Coaxial Loudspeaker
(University of Waterloo, 20090622)A coaxial loudspeaker in which the woofer and tweeter oscillate at angular frequencies ω_1 and ω_2 respectively, is known to produce sum and difference frequencies ω_± = ω_1 ± ω_2. The generation of these can be attributed ... 
Effective and Efficient Optimization Methods for Kernel Based Classification Problems
(University of Waterloo, 20140422)Kernel methods are a popular choice in solving a number of problems in statistical machine learning. In this thesis, we propose new methods for two important kernel based classification problems: 1) learning from highly ... 
Effective Dimensionality Control in Quantitative Finance and Insurance
(University of Waterloo, 20170906)It is wellknown that dimension reduction techniques such as the Brownian bridge, principal component analysis, linear transformation could increase the efficiency of QuasiMonte Carlo (QMC) methods. Caflisch et al. (1997), ... 
Effective Use of SSDs in Database Systems
(University of Waterloo, 20180507)With the advent of solid state drives (SSDs), the storage industry has experienced a revolutionary improvement in I/O performance. Compared to traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), SSDs benefit from shorter I/O latency, ... 
Effects of a Geostrophic Current on the Propagation and Generation of Internal Tides
(University of Waterloo, 20210830)Internal tides (ITs) are ubiquitous in a stratified ocean where they are generated in response to tidal flows incident upon bottom topography. Alongshelf currents or boundary currents are ocean currents commonly observed ... 
The Effects of Confinement on KelvinHelmholtz Billows
(University of Waterloo, 20160115)Turbulence is one of the most interesting and important, yet poorly understood, aspects of fluid mechanics. The transition from an unstable laminar flow to a fully turbulent flow can follow many paths depending on the ... 
Effects of Developmental Heuristics for Natural Language Learning
(University of Waterloo, 2003)Machine learning in natural language has been a widely pursued area of research. However, few learning techniques model themselves after human learning, despite the nature of the task being closely connected to human ... 
The effects of dielectric decrement and finite ion size on differential capacitance of electrolytically gated graphene
(Elsevier, 20180601)We analyze the effects of dielectric decrement and finite ion size in an aqueous electrolyte on the capacitance of a graphene electrode, and make comparisons with the effects of dielectric saturation combined with finite ...
