Uses of Killing and Killing-Yano Tensors

In this contribution we have collected some facts about Killing and Killing-Yano tensors that we feel are of general interest for researchers working on problems that rely on differential geometry. We also include some of our recent studies pertaining to currents, charges and (super)invariants for particles and tensionless strings.

Application of the boundary element method to parabolic type equations
Bozkaya, Nuray; Tezer-Sezgin, Münevver; Department of Mathematics (2010)
In this thesis, the two-dimensional initial and boundary value problems governed by unsteady partial differential equations are solved by making use of boundary element techniques. The boundary element method (BEM) with time-dependent fundamental solution is presented as an efficient procedure for the solution of diffusion, wave and convection-diffusion equations. It interpenetrates the equations in such a way that the boundary solution is advanced to all time levels, simultaneously. The solution at a requi...
IDER, SK (1996-01-03)
In this paper inverse dynamics of redundant multibody systems using a minimum number of control forces is formulated. It is shown that the control forces and the task accelerations may become noncausal at certain configurations, yielding the dynamical equation set of the system to be singular. For a given set of tasks, each different set of actuators leads to a different system motion and also to different singular configurations. To avoid the singularities in the numerical solution, the dynamical equations...
Evaluation of Hypersingular Integrals on Curvilinear Surface Elements
Selcuk, Gokhun; Koç, Seyit Sencer (2016-04-15)
In this study finite part integrals are utilized for evaluation of hypersingular and nearly-hypersingular surface integrals on curvilinear elements. These integrals are related to the second derivative of the free space Green' function and arise in the solution of electric field integral equation (EFIE) via locally corrected Nystriim (LCN) method. The curvilinear elements are represented by the Taylor series expansion of the surface function around the observation point. The hypersingular integral, defined ...
On generalized integral inequalities with applications in bio-mathematics and physical sciences
Pelen, Neslihan Nesliye; Önsiper, Mustafa Hurşit; Güvenilir, Ayşe Feza; Department of Mathematics (2015)
In this thesis, applications of generalized integral inequalities especially on biomathematics and physics are studied. Application on Biomathematics is about the predatorprey dynamic systems with Beddington DeAngelis type functional response and application on physics is about water percolation equation. This thesis consists 6 chapters. Chapter 1 is introductory and contains the thesis structure. Chapter 2 is about under which conditions the two dimensional predator-prey dynamic system with Beddington DeAn...
Optimization of the array geometry for direction finding
Özaydın, Seval; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Tanık, Yalçın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
In this thesis, optimization of the geometry of non-uniform arrays for direction finding yielding unambiguous results is studied. A measure of similarity between the array response vectors is defined. In this measure, the effects of antenna array geometry, source placements and antenna gains are included as variable parameters. Then, assuming that the antenna gains are known and constant, constraints on the similarity function are developed and described to result in unambiguous configurations and maximum r...
