Stochastic approach to fusion dynamics

Yılmaz, Bülent
This doctoral study consists of two parts. In the first part, the quantum statistical effects on the formation process of the heavy ion fusion reactions have been investigated by using the c-number quantum Langevin equation approach. It has been shown that the quantum effects enhance the over-passing probability at low temperatures. In the second part, we have developed a simulation technique for the quantum noises which can be approximated by two-term exponential colored noise.


Theoretical investigaton of AltiNi ternary glusters : density functioanal theory calculations and molecular dynamics simulations
Oymak, Hüseyin; Erkoç, Şakir; Department of Physics (2004)
This doctoral study consists of three parts. In the first part, structural and electronic properties of Al_kTi_lNi_m (k+l+m=2,3) microclusters have been investigated by performing density functional theory (DFT) calculations within the B3LYP [which comprises the Becke-88 exchange functional and the correlation functional of Lee, Yang, and Parr] and the effective core potential (ECP) level. Dimers and trimers of the elements aluminum, titanium, and nickel, and their binary and ternary combinations have been ...
Microwave initiated polymerization of trihalophenyleneoxide and aniline
Levent, Fulya; Kısakürek, Duygu; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2011)
The aim of the study is to synthesize poly(dibromophenyleneoxide) and polyaniline separately applying different microwave energies (90-900 watt), water amounts (1-5 ml) and time intervals (2-10 min) and investigate the effects of these parameters on the percent conversion of the polymers. The synthesis of poly(dibromophenyleneoxide) (P), radical ion polymer (RIP) and crosslinked polymer (CLP) were achieved by using tribromophenol (TBP) and Ca(OH)2 via microwave energy in a very short time interval. P and RI...
Macroprudential policies, persistence of uncertainty and leverage dynamics a study for real sector in Turkey
Yarba, İbrahim; Güner, Zehra Nuray; Department of Business Administration (2017)
This study consists of three chapters. The first chapter analyses leverage dynamics of Turkish non-financial firms over the last 20 years using a confidential and unique firm-level dataset. Results of panel models reveal that financial development fosters corporate leverage while government indebtedness inhibits it. Both impacts are more pronounced for private firms rather than public firms. Besides, even though improvements in financial development foster long-term debt usage for both SMEs and large firms,...
Schwarz problem for complex partial differential equations
Aksoy, Ümit; Çelebi, Okay; Department of Mathematics (2006)
This study consists of four chapters. In the first chapter we give some historical background of the problem, basic definitions and properties. Basic integral operators of complex analysis and and Schwarz problem for model equations are presented in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 is devoted to the investigation of the properties of a class of strongly singular integral operators. In the last chapter we consider the Schwarz boundary value problem for the general partial complex differential equations of higher order.
Matrix quantum mechanics an dintegrable systems
Pehlivan, Yamaç; Karasu, Emine Ayşe; Department of Physics (2004)
In this thesis we improve and extend an algebraic technique pioneered by M. Gaudin. The technique is based on an infinite dimensional Lie algebra and a related family of mutually commuting Hamiltonians. In order to find energy eigenvalues of such Hamiltonians one has to solve the equations of Bethe ansatz. However, in most cases analytical solutions are not available. In this study we examine a special case for which analytical solutions of Bethe ansatz equations are not needed. Instead, some special proper...
