Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is believed to be the theory of strong interactions. At high energies, it has been successfully applied to explain the interactions in accelerators. At these energies, the method used to do the calculations is perturbation theory. But at low energies, since the strong coupling constant becomes large, perturbation theory is no longer applicable. Hence, one needs non-perturbative approaches. Some of these approaches are based on the fundamental QCD Lagrangian, such as the QCD sum rules or lattice calculations. Some others use an effective theory approach to relate experimental observables one to the other. Chiral Perturbation Theory (ChPT) is one of these approaches. In this thesis, we make a review of chiral perturbation theory and its applications to study the mixing phenomenon between the neutral pseudoscalar mesons eta and eta-prime.

Gravitational waves and gravitational memory
Korkmaz, Ali; Tekin, Bayram; Department of Physics (2018)
We study the gravitational waves produced by compact binary systems in the linear regime of massless general relativity and calculate the gravitational memory produced by these waves on a detector.
Nonlinear optical properties of semiconductor heterostructures
Yıldırım, Hasan; Tomak, Mehmet; Department of Physics (2006)
The nonlinear optical properties of semiconductor heterostructures, such as GaAsAl/GaAs alloys, are studied with analytic and numerical methods on the basis of quantum mechanics. Particularly, second and third-order nonlinear optical properties of quantum wells described by the various types of confining potentials are considered within the density matrix formalism. We consider a Pöschl-Teller type potential which has been rarely considered in this area. It has a tunable asymmetry parameter, making it a goo...
Properties of light and heavy baryons in light cone qcd sum rules formalism
Azizi, Kazem; Özpineci, Altuğ; Department of Physics (2009)
In this thesis, we investigate the masses, form factors and magnetic dipole moments of some light octet, decuplet and heavy baryons containing a single heavy quark in the framework of the light cone QCD sum rules. The magnetic dipole moments can be measured considering radiative transitions within a multiplet or between multiplets. Analyzing the transitions among the baryons and calculating the above mentioned parameters can give us insight into the structure of those baryons. In analyzing the aforementione...
Non-Einsteinian black holes in generic 3D gravity theories
Gürses, Metin; Şisman, Tahsin Çağrı; Tekin, Bayram (AMER PHYSICAL SOC, ONE PHYSICS ELLIPSE, COLLEGE PK, MD 20740-3844 USA, 2019-09-21)
The Banados-Teitelboim-Zanelli (BTZ) black hole metric solves the three-dimensional Einstein's theory with a negative cosmological constant as well as all the generic higher derivative gravity theories based on the metric; as such it is a universal solution. Here, we find, in all generic higher derivative gravity theories, new universal non-Einsteinian solutions obtained as Kerr-Schild type deformations of the BTZ black hole. Among these, the deformed nonextremal BTZ black hole loses its event horizon while...
Conformal symmetry in field theory
Huyal, Ulaş; Tekin, Bayram; Department of Physics (2011)
In this thesis, conformal transformations in d and two dimensions and the results of conformal symmetry in classical and quantum field theories are reviewed. After investigating the conformal group and its algebra, various aspects of conformal invariance in field theories, like conserved charges, correlation functions and the Ward identities are discussed. The central charge and the Virasoro algebra are briefly touched upon.
