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...
This poster summarizes the milestones hit in network research. It opens by defining networks and their significance, and then goes through explaining in logical order all major contributions to network study. The poster starts by describing the work done by Travers and Milgram in determining the...
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...
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...
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...
By eavesdropping on a user's query in a sensor network, an adversary can deduce both the user's current location and his/her location of interest. Issuing k queries instead of one (our "k-query" scheme) protects the privacy of the user's location of interest, but facilitates the adversary...
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...
Conservation auctions have become a popular mechanism for gathering information about farmers' willingness to accept (WTA) compensation for the adoption of beneficial management practices (BMPs), allowing governments and environmental authorities to foster the adoption of these practices. In real...
With funding for public health and health promotion being cut significantly there has been increased pressure to ensure what is funded is improving health outcomes. This in turn has led to an increase in knowledge translation (KT) and knowledge translation networks. This qualitative study...
