Liftable homeomorphisms of cyclic and rank two finite abelian branched covers over the real projective plane
Atalan, Ferihe; Medetogullari, Elif; Ozan, Yıldıray (Elsevier BV, 2021-02-01)
© 2020 Elsevier B.V.In this note, we investigate the property for regular branched finite abelian covers of the real projective plane, where each homeomorphism of the base (preserving the branch locus) lifts to a homeomorphism of the covering surface.
Hybrid ranking approaches based on data envelopment analysis and outranking relations
Eryılmaz, Utkan; Karasakal, Esra; Department of Industrial Engineering (2006)
In this study two different hybrid ranking approaches based on data envelopment analysis and outranking relations for ranking alternatives are proposed. Outranking relations are widely used in Multicriteria Decision Making (MCDM) for ranking the alternatives and appropriate in situations when we have limited information on the preference structure of the decision maker. Yet to apply these methods DM should provide exact values for method parameters (weights, thresholds etc.) as well as basic information suc...
On generalizations of topological games
Önal, Süleyman; VURAL, ÇETİN (Elsevier BV, 2019-05-01)
We establish three games as generalizations of the Banach-Mazur game, the Choquet game and the point-open game. We find a characterization of compact scattered spaces by using one of the generalized games and show a relation between the other generalized games and domain representability.
Tight contact structures on hyperbolic three-manifolds
Arıkan, Mehmet Fırat (Elsevier BV, 2017-11-01)
Let Sigma(g) denote a closed orientable surface of genus g >= 2. We consider a certain infinite family of Sigma(g)-bundles over circle whose monodromies are taken from some collection of pseudo-Anosov diffeomorphisms. We show the existence of tight contact structure on every closed 3-manifold obtained via rational r-surgery along a section of any member of the family whenever r not equal 2g - 1. Combining with Thurston's hyperbolic Dehn surgery theorem, we obtain infinitely many hyperbolic closed 3-manifold...
Equivariant cross sections of complex Stiefel manifolds
Onder, T (Elsevier BV, 2001-01-16)
Let G be a finite group and let M be a unitary representation space of G. A solution to the existence problem of G-equivariant cross sections of the complex Stiefel manifold W-k(M) of unitary k-frames over the unit sphere S(M) is given under mild restrictions on G and on fixed point sets. In the case G is an even ordered group, some sufficient conditions for the existence of G-equivariant real frame fields on spheres with complementary G-equivariant complex structures are also obtained, improving earlier re...
