Oscillation of second order dynamic equations on time scales

Kütahyalıoğlu, Ayşen
During the last decade, the use of time scales as a means of unifying and extending results about various types of dynamic equations has proven to be both prolific and fruitful. Many classical results from the theories of differential and difference equations have time scale analogues. In this thesis we derive new oscillation criteria for second order dynamic equations on time scales.


Oscillation of second order matrix equations on time scales
Selçuk, Aysun; Ağacık, Zafer; Department of Mathematics (2004)
The theory of time scales is introduced by Stefan Hilger in his PhD thesis in 1998 in order to unify continuous and discrete analysis. In our thesis, by making use of the time scale calculus we study the oscillation of nonlinear matrix differential equations of second order. the first chapter is introductory in nature and contains some basic definitions and tools of the time scales calculus, while certain well-known results have been presented with regard to oscillation of the solutions of second order matr...
Boundary value problems for higher order linear impulsive differential equations
Uğur, Ömür; Akhmet, Marat; Taşeli, Hasan; Department of Mathematics (2003)
The theory of impulsive di®erential equations has become an important area of research in recent years. Linear equations, meanwhile, are fundamental in most branches of applied mathematics, science, and technology. The theory of higher order linear impulsive equations, however, has not been studied as much as the cor- responding theory of ordinary di®erential equations. In this work, higher order linear impulsive equations at xed moments of impulses together with certain boundary conditions are investigated...
Studies on the perturbation problems in quantum mechanics
Koca, Burcu; Taşeli, Hasan; Department of Mathematics (2004)
In this thesis, the main perturbation problems encountered in quantum mechanics have been studied.Since the special functions and orthogonal polynomials appear very extensively in such problems, we emphasize on those topics as well. In this context, the classical quantum mechanical anharmonic oscillators described mathematically by the one-dimensional Schrodinger equation have been treated perturbatively in both finite and infinite intervals, corresponding to confined and non-confined systems, respectively.
On principles of b-smooth discontinuous flows
Akalın, Ebru Çiğdem; Akhmet, Marat; Department of Mathematics (2004)
Discontinuous dynamical system defined by impulsive autonomous differential equation is a field that has actually been considered rarely. Also, the properties of such systems have not been discussed thoroughly in the course of mathematical researches so far. This thesis comprises two parts, elaborated with a number of examples. In the first part, some results of the previous studies on the classical dynamical system are exposed. In the second part, the definition of discontinuous dynamical system defined by...
Asymptotic integration of impulsive differential equations
Doğru Akgöl, Sibel; Ağacık, Zafer; Özbekler, Abdullah; Department of Mathematics (2017)
The main objective of this thesis is to investigate asymptotic properties of the solutions of differential equations under impulse effect, and in this way to fulfill the gap in the literature about asymptotic integration of impulsive differential equations. In this process our main instruments are fixed point theorems; lemmas on compactness; principal and nonprincipal solutions of impulsive differential equations and Cauchy function for impulsive differential equations. The thesis consists of five chapters....
