Fast secure virtualization for the ARM platform

Ferstay, Daniel R. (2006)
Publisher: The University of British Columbia
In recent years, powerful handheld computing devices such as personal digital assistants and mobile smart phones have become ubiquitous in home and office environments. Advancements in handheld device hardware have driven the development of the software that runs on them. As these devices become more powerful, increasingly connected, and the tasks performed by their operating systems more complex there is a need for virtual machine monitors. Virtual machine monitors such as the Xen hypervisor...

Forecasts of tropical Pacific sea surface temperatures by neural networks and support vector regression

Aguilar-Martinez, Silvestre (2008)
Publisher: University of British Columbia
Nonlinear and linear regression models were developed to forecast the sea surface temperature anomalies (SSTA) across the tropical Pacific ocean. The methods used were, Bayesian neural networks (BNN), support vector machines for regression (SVR) and linear regression (LR). The predictors of the models were a particular combination of the principal components of sea level pressure (SLP) and sea surface temperature (SST) data at lead times ranging from 3 to 15 months. Two data sets correspondi...

Seasonal changes in the survival of the black-capped chickadee

Smith, Susan M. (1965)
Publisher: University of British Columbia
A population of Black-capped Chickadees (Parus atricapillus) living in a favourable environment was colour-banded, and its survival was followed, to find out what prevents continual increase in its numbers. A weekly census of the population was made throughout the two years of the study. All nests were found and the young were banded before they flew. Every two weeks throughout both winters checks were also made on an unhanded population in a control area one and a quarter miles from the main...

Dynamic Bayesian networks

Horsch, Michael C. (1990)
Publisher: University of British Columbia
Given the complexity of the domains for which we would like to use computers as reasoning engines, an automated reasoning process will often be required to perform under some state of uncertainty. Probability provides a normative theory with which uncertainty can be modelled. Without assumptions of independence from the domain, naive computations of probability are intractible. If probability theory is to be used effectively in AI applications, the independence assumptions from the domain s...

Morphogenesis in micrasterias

Lacalli, Thurston Castle (1973)
Publisher: University of British Columbia
The morphogenetic process responsible for elaboration of cell wall shape in dividing Micrasterias rotata cells is described and the associated ultrastructure discussed. The process is dissected experimentally into its contributing parts; laser microbeam studies reveal the growth sites responsible for morphogenesis, and autoradiography, the associated synthetic patterns. Tip growth similar to that occurring in fungal hypae, root hairs and pollen tubes makes a major contribution to cell sha...

Fluid surface reconstruction from particles

Williams, Brent Warren (2008)
Publisher: University of British Columbia
Outlined is a new approach to the problem of surfacing particle-based fluid simulations. The key idea is to construct a surface that is as smooth as possible while remaining faithful to the particle locations. We describe a mesh-based algorithm that expresses the surface in terms of a constrained optimization problem. Our algorithm incorporates a secondary contribution in Marching Tiles, a generalization of the Marching Cubes isosurfacing algorithm. Marching Tiles provides guarantees on the m...

Making sense of organizational succession

Gephart, Robert Paul (1979)
Publisher: The University of British Columbia
This dissertation is an attempt to make social scientific sense of common sense knowledge involved in the social production of organizational succession, where succession is defined as the change in the incumbent of an organizational position. Past succession research is typified in terms of two approaches, both of which are made problematic by the present study. The conventional quantitative approach ignores concrete activities and actors' meanings involved in the succession process, and re...

Life history of marine threespine stickleback in Oyster Lagoon, British Columbia

Saimoto, Regina Karin (1993)
Publisher: The University of British Columbia
Marine populations of three spine sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus) are possible ancestors of the many of the divergent freshwater populations of this species found along the glaciated coast of British Columbia. Until this study, the life history and reproductive behaviours of marine population along the Pacific coast of North America were unknown. Data was collected from September 1990 to August 1992 at Oyster Lagoon, Pender Harbour, British Columbia. Morphology, migration and growth, re...

Call traditions and dialects of killer whales (Orcinus orca) in British Columbia

Ford, John Kenneth Baker (1984)
Publisher: University of British Columbia
Underwater vocalizations were recorded from pods of wild killer whales (Oreinus orca) off Vancouver Island, British Columbia, during 1978-83. Acoustic exchanges within pods are dominated by repetitious, pulsed calls which can be organized into discrete categories. Repeated encounters with 16 photographically-identified 'resident' pods demonstrate that each pod produces a repertoire of 7 to 17 (mean = 10.7) discrete call types. Recordings of captive whales of known pod origin and historical f...
