The Dual Failure Restorability (DFR) problems involve the design of network topology to be restorable in the event of single and dual failures scenarios. We developed new integer linear programming (ILP) models to optimally design mesh topology networks with various survivability schemes; span...
Regional Food Clusters and Government Support for Clustering: Evidence for a 'Dynamic Food Innovation Cluster' in Alberta, Canada?Download
This paper analyzes government support for networking and regional cluster growth in the food sector. It is, to the best of our knowledge, the first paper to provide a literature review of studies on regional food clusters, focusing on key features that characterize successful regional food...
A graph-theoretic approach to the construction of Lyapunov functions for coupled systems on networksDownload
For coupled systems of differential equations on networks, a graph-theoretic approach to the construction of Lyapunov functions is systematically developed in this thesis. Kirchhoff’s Matrix-Tree Theorem in graph theory plays an essential role in the approach’s development. The approach is...
A fair and optimal mechanism is required for allocating bandwidth to virtual machine migration in a WAN environment. In this thesis, we propose a dynamic resource allocation algorithm running in either centralized or distributed environments. The centralized version of our algorithm collects...
Understanding implementation processes of clinical pathways and clinical practice guidelines in pediatric contexts: A study protocolDownload
Background: Canada is among the most prosperous nations in the world, yet the health and wellness outcomes of Canadian children are surprisingly poor. There is some evidence to suggest that these poor health outcomes are partly due to clinical practice variation, which can stem from failure to...
Recent shifts towards spatial issues within education are examined, and mapping is identified as particularly important. The multidisciplinary trend of complexity science is surveyed, in turn, through the lens of physics and education research. The provincial education system of Alberta is...
Nanotechnology and the Alberta capital region: A case study of integrating communities, innovation and developmentDownload
SSHRC PDG awarded 2012: What can cities and communities do to support and benefit from new technologies? How can knowledge-intensive sectors develop in ways which account for local contexts and local needs? How can benefits and prosperity be made to 'stick' to the communities in which new...
Alberta Innovates – Technology Futures (AITF) and other parties have been investigating reclamation research, development and deployment capabilities and capacities in the province for several months. The concept of a ‘Reclamation Centre’ was first discussed through a Challenge Paper distributed...
Contrairement à ce que le sous-titre pourrait laisser croire, Reticulations n’est ni un livre sur Jean-Luc Nancy ni un livre sur les réseaux si, du moins, on entend par là les réseaux de transport ou de télécommunication omniprésents dans notre vie moderne. Le livre de Philip Armstrong ne vise...
