  • Generating Relation Algebras for Qualitative Spatial Reasoning 

    Siddavaatam, Prathap (2013-04-15)
    Basic relationships between certain regions of space are formulated in natural language in everyday situations. For example, a customer specifies the outline of his future home to the architect by indicating which rooms ...
  • Generator Matrix Based Search for Extremal Self-Dual Binary Error-Correcting Codes 

    Derka, Martin (Brock University, 2012-09-18)
    Self-dual doubly even linear binary error-correcting codes, often referred to as Type II codes, are codes closely related to many combinatorial structures such as 5-designs. Extremal codes are codes that have the largest ...
  • Genetic Programming for Non-Photorealistic Rendering 

    Baniasadi, Maryam (Brock University, 2013-04-18)
    This thesis focuses on developing an evolutionary art system using genetic programming. The main goal is to produce new forms of evolutionary art that filter existing images into new non-photorealistic (NPR) styles, by ...
  • Genetic programming for the RoboCup Rescue Simulation System 

    Runka, Andrew (Brock University, 2011-03-08)
    The Robocup Rescue Simulation System (RCRSS) is a dynamic system of multi-agent interaction, simulating a large-scale urban disaster scenario. Teams of rescue agents are charged with the tasks of minimizing civilian ...
  • Heuristics for the Critical Node Detection Problem in Large Complex Networks 

    Edalatmanesh, Mahmood (Brock University, 2013-09-12)
    Complex networks have recently attracted a significant amount of research attention due to their ability to model real world phenomena. One important problem often encountered is to limit diffusive processes spread over ...
  • Improving Short DNA Sequence Alignment with Parallel Computing 

    Peters, Darren (2013-04-11)
    Variations in different types of genomes have been found to be responsible for a large degree of physical diversity such as appearance and susceptibility to disease. Identification of genomic variations is difficult and ...
  • Improving the Scalability of Reduct Determination in Rough Sets 

    Mahmood, Shahid (2013-04-09)
    Rough Set Data Analysis (RSDA) is a non-invasive data analysis approach that solely relies on the data to find patterns and decision rules. Despite its noninvasive approach and ability to generate human readable rules, ...
  • An Interactive Theorem Prover for First-Order Dynamic Logic 

    Das, Tuhin Kanti (Brock University, 2012-10-11)
    Dynamic logic is an extension of modal logic originally intended for reasoning about computer programs. The method of proving correctness of properties of a computer program using the well-known Hoare Logic can be ...
  • A Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm with Side Effect Machines for Motif Discovery 

    Alizadeh Noori, Farhad (Brock University, 2012-09-18)
    Understanding the machinery of gene regulation to control gene expression has been one of the main focuses of bioinformaticians for years. We use a multi-objective genetic algorithm to evolve a specialized version of ...
  • Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithms for the Single Allocation Hub Location Problem 

    Asobiela, Stephen Yamzuuga (Brock University, 2013-09-12)
    Hub Location Problems play vital economic roles in transportation and telecommunication networks where goods or people must be efficiently transferred from an origin to a destination point whilst direct origin-destination ...
