In this thesis, a leading-order QCD analysis of structure functions in neutrinonucleon interactions is performed. From the CCFR nucleon structure function data, the QCD parameter Lambda has been extracted. This measurement also corresponds to a measurement of the strong coupling constant. Two fits to the data have been performed, the nonsinglet-only fit and the singlet-nonsinglet combined fit. The result for Lambda was found to be 289 +62 Ł59 ʹ76 MeV, where the errors are statistical and systematical, respectively. This result is compared to the world-wide measurements of this quantity. In order to verify the agreement, also the logarithmic slopes of the QCD model and the structure function data are calculated and compared.

A frequency domain boundary element formulation for dynamic interaction problems in poroviscoelastic media
Argeso, Hakan; Mengi, Yalcin (2014-02-01)
A unified formulation is presented, based on the boundary element method, to perform the interaction analysis for the problems involving poroviscoelastic media. The proposed formulation permits the evaluation of all the elements of impedance and input motion matrices at a single step in terms of system matrices of boundary element method without solving any special problem, such as, unit displacement or load problem, as required by conventional methods. It further eliminates the complicated procedure and th...
An analysis of the diffusion of structures and practices in a high-level bureaucratic organization in Turkey by using "new institutional theory"
Sert, Semih; Şimşek, Hasan; Department of Educational Sciences (2008)
This study analyzes the process of the diffusion of structures and practices in an organizational setting using the theory of new institutionalism as the theoretical basis. The explanation of the diffusion process has been subject to major variations due to epistemological and ontological reasons. Former theories of organizational reality looked at organizations as their sole units of analyses and accounted for the diffusion process accordingly; however, today, it is widely observed and accepted that organi...
A quasi-incompressible and quasi-inextensible finite element analysis of fibrous soft biological tissues
Gultekin, Osman; Rodoplu, Burak; Dal, Hüsnü (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-06-01)
The contribution presents anextensionandapplicationof a recently proposed finite element formulation for quasi-inextensible and quasi-incompressible finite hyperelasticity to fibrous soft biological tissues and touches in particular upon computational aspects thereof. In line with theoretical framework presented by Dal (Int J Numer Methods Eng 117:118-140, 2019), the mixed variational formulation is extended to two families of fibers as often encountered while dealing with fibrous tissues. Apart from that, ...
A Formal Methods Approach to Pattern Recognition and Synthesis in Reaction Diffusion Networks
Bartocci, Ezio; Aydın Göl, Ebru; Haghighi, Iman; Belta, Calin (2018-03-01)
We introduce a formal framework for specifying, detecting, and generating spatial patterns in reaction diffusion networks. Our approach is based on a novel spatial superposition logic, whose semantics is defined over the quad-tree representation of a partitioned image. We demonstrate how to use rule-based classifiers to efficiently learn spatial superposition logic formulas for several types of patterns from positive and negative examples. We implement pattern detection as a model-checking algorithm and we ...
A unified approach for the formulation of interaction problems by the boundary element method
Mengi, Y; Argeso, H (Wiley, 2006-04-30)
A unified formulation is presented, based on boundary element method, in a form suitable for performing the interaction analyses by substructure method for solid-solid and soil-structure problems. The proposed formulation permits the evaluation of all the elements of impedance and input motion matrices simultaneously at a single step in terms of system matrices of the boundary element method without solving any special problem, such as, unit displacement or load problem, as required in conventional methods....
