Yurduşen, İsmet
The Wahlquist-Estabrook prolongation technique and the Painleve analysis, used for testing the integrability of nonlinear evolution equations, are considered and applied both to the Drinfel'd-Sokolov system of equations, indeed known to be one of the coupled Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) systems, and Kersten-Krasil'shchik coupled KdV-mKdV equations. Some new Backlund transformations for the Drinfel'd-Sokolov system of equations are also found.

Hamilton-Jacobi theory of continuous systems
Güler, Y. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1987-8)
The Hamilton-Jacobi partial differnetial equation for classical field systems is obtained in a 5n-dimensional phase space and it is integrated by the method of characteristics. Space-time partial derivatives of Hamilton’s principal functionsS μ (Φ i ,x ν ) (μ,ν=1,2,3,4) are identified as the energy-momentum tensor of the system.
Numerical studies of the electronic properties of low dimensional semiconductor heterostructures
Dikmen, Bora; Tomak, Mehmet; Department of Physics (2004)
An efficient numerical method for solving Schrödinger's and Poisson's equations using a basis set of cubic B-splines is investigated. The method is applied to find both the wave functions and the corresponding eigenenergies of low-dimensional semiconductor structures. The computational efficiency of the method is explicitly shown by the multiresolution analysis, non-uniform grid construction and imposed boundary conditions by applying it to well-known single electron potentials. The method compares well wit...
Quantum mechanics on curved hypersurfaces
Olpak, Mehmet Ali; Tekin, Bayram; Department of Physics (2010)
In this work, Schrödinger and Dirac equations will be examined in geometries that confine the particles to hypersurfaces. For this purpose, two methods will be considered. The first method is the thin layer method which relies on explicit use of geometrical relations and the squeezing of a certain coordinate of space (or spacetime). The second is Dirac’s quantization procedure involving the modification of canonical quantization making use of the geometrical constraints. For the Dirac equation, only the fir...
Kaluza-klein reduction of higher curvature gravity models
Kuyrukcu, Halil; Başkal, Sibel; Department of Physics (2010)
The standard Kaluza-Klein theory is reviewed and its basic equations are rewritten in an anholonomic basis. A five dimensional Yang-Mills type quadratic and cubic curvature gravity model is introduced. By employing the Palatini variational principle, the field equations and the stress-energy tensors of these models are presented. Unification of gravity with electromagnetism is achieved through the Kaluza-Klein reduction mechanism. Reduced curvature invariants,field equations and stress-energy tensors in fou...
Dual Killing-Yano symmetry and multipole moments in electromagnetism and mechanics of continua
Baleanu, D; Dubovik, VM; Misicu, S (1999-10-01)
In this work we introduce the Killing-Yano symmetry on the phase space and we investigate the symplectic structure on the space of Killing-Yano tensors. We perform the detailed analyze of the n-dimensional flat space and the Riemaniann manifolds with constant scalar curvature. We investigate the form of some multipole tensors, which. arise in the expansion of a system of charges and currents, in terms of second-order Killing-Yano tensors in the phase space of classical mechanics. We find some relations betw...
