    • 3D Modelling for Improved Visual Traffic Analytics 

      Soto, Eduardo R Corral (2018-08-27)
      Advanced Traffic Management Systems utilize diverse types of sensor networks with the goal of improving mobility and safety of transportation systems. These systems require information about the state of the traffic ...
    • A Branch-and-Price Algorithm for Bin Packing Problem 

      Ataei, Masoud (2015-12-16)
      Bin Packing Problem examines the minimum number of identical bins needed to pack a set of items of various sizes. Employing branch-and-bound and column generation usually requires designation of the problem-specific branching ...
    • Algebraic-Delay Differential Systems: Co - Extendable Banach Manifolds and Linearization 

      Kosovalic, Nemanja (2015-01-26)
      Consider a population of individuals occupying some habitat, and assume that the population is structured by age. Suppose that there are two distinct life stages, the immature stage and the mature stage. Suppose that the ...
    • Analytical Methods For Levy Processes With Applications To Finance 

      Hackmann, Daniel (2015-08-28)
      This dissertation is divided into two parts: the first part is a literature review and the second describes three new contributions to the literature. The literature review aims to provide a self-contained introduction to ...
    • Extensions of the Formlet Model of Planar Shape 

      Yakubovich, Alexander (2015-08-28)
      This thesis addresses the problem of shape representation using the GRID/formlet theory, a system based on localized diffeomorphisms. While this framework enjoys many desirable properties, it suffers from several limitations: ...
    • GOCE Gradiometer Measurement Disturbances and their Modelling by Means of Ionospheric Dynamics 

      Ince, Elmas Sinem (2017-07-28)
      We examine the presence of residual non-gravitational signatures in gravitational gradients measured by GOCE Electrostatic Gravity Gradiometer. These signatures are observed over the geomagnetic poles during geomagnetically ...
    • Modeling, Dynamics and Optimal Control of West Nile Virus with Seasonality 

      Abdelrazec, Ahmed Hassan Manaa (2015-01-26)
      West Nile virus (WNv) is a mosquito-borne disease which arrived in Canada in 2001. It has kept spreading across the country and still remains a threat to public health. In this dissertation, we formulate dynamical models ...
    • On Adaptive Image Segmentation of Remotely Sensed Imagery 

      Judah, Aaron Jonathan (2015-08-28)
      A critical step in object-oriented geospatial analysis (OBIA) is image segmentation. A single set of parameters is often not effective segmenting an image. To solve this problem, an adaptive approach to image segmentation ...
    • Optimizing Simulated Crowd Behaviour 

      Berseth, Glen Paul (2015-01-26)
      In the context of crowd simulation, there is a diverse set of algorithms that model steering, the ability of an agent to navigate between spatial locations, while avoiding static and dynamic obstacles. The performance of ...
    • Pricing and Hedging Options in Discrete Time with Liquidity Risk 

      Sorokin, Yegor (2015-01-26)
      Different derivative securities, including European options, are very popular and widely used in forms of exchange-traded instruments or over-the-counter products. For practical purposes the European options are often ...
    • Scale-Free Networks in Molecular Biology: Algorithms and Random Walks Analyses 

      Konini, Silva (2018-03-01)
      In this research, I focus on I) the mean field analysis of algorithms for scale-free networks in molecular biology and II) the analysis of biological networks using random walks and related algorithms. I: Many systems ...
    • Segmentation of Multiple Sclerosis Lesions Using Dictionary Learning in Feature Space 

      Kuling, Gregory Christopher (2018-03-01)
      Manual segmentation is used in the diagnosis, management and evaluation of clinical trials for Multiple Sclerosis (MS), but human error makes manual segmentation variable. Automatic segmentation has been proposed using ...
    • Some Aspects of Statistical Volatility Analysis 

      Xu, Min (2015-12-16)
      Volatility is the key of the option price in the stock market. Changes in volatility will dramatically lead to changes of the option price. One of the most important volatilities is historical volatility(HV). HV is ...
    • The Effects of Pre-Movement on Large Building Evacuations 

      Farnell, Lisa Carroll Ruth (2015-12-16)
      Evacuation times for buildings with a range of heights and occupant loads were generated by a computer simulation algorithm, assuming simultaneous start. Additional evacuation times were generated for the same buildings ...
    • Topological Dynamical Systems Methods in Early-Universe Cosmologies 

      Kohli, Ikjyot Singh (2015-01-26)
      This dissertation describes some important problems that we have tried to solve with respect to the state of the early universe, that is, the universe shortly after the Big Bang. Standard early-universe cosmological ...
