Photometric and spectral analysis of the optical companion to sax j2103.5+4545

Özbilgen, Sinem
In this study spectral and photometric data of the SAX J2103.5+4545 Be/X-ray system are given. The spectral data were taken from June 2007 to September 2008 with the 1.5 m Russian-Turkish telescope, whereas the photometric data were obtained using ROTSE-IIId archive from June 2004 to November 2008. The photometric data up to April 2007 shows that the system was in quiescence in the optical region. But, in the 23rd of April 2007, the system's luminosity underwent a large increase, which is in agreement with X-ray data. This increase was approximately 1 mag. Also, the Halpha line was displaying an emission with increased equivalent width proportional to the outburst. Afterwards, the Halpha line profile changed from a double peaked emission into a single peaked absorption, which is in agreement with the system's structure. This means that the Be star threw away its disc and its light curve fell back to its old luminosity.


X-ray spectral and timing studies of the high mass x-ray binary pulsar 4u 1907+09
Şahiner, Şeyda; Baykal, Altan; Department of Physics (2009)
In this thesis, X-ray spectral and pulse timing analysis of the high mass X-ray binary pulsar 4U 1907+09, based on the observations with Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) and International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory (INTEGRAL), are presented. INTEGRAL (October 2005 - November 2007) and RXTE (June 2007 - December 2008) observations confirm that the luminosity of the source is highly variable such that, flaring and dipping activities are observed. The results of time-averaged energy spectra of RXTE an...
Parametric Identification of Hybrid Linear-Time-Periodic Systems
Uyanik, Ismail; Saranlı, Uluç; Morgul, Omer; Ankaralı, Mustafa Mert (2016-06-24)
In this paper, we present a state-space system identification technique for a class of hybrid LTP systems, formulated in the frequency domain based on input-output data. Other than a few notable exceptions, the majority of studies in the state-space system identification literature (e.g. subspace methods) focus only on LTI systems. Our goal in this study is to develop a technique for estimating time-periodic system and input matrices for a hybrid LTP system, assuming that full state measurements are availab...
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.
Frequency response function measurement and parametric SISO system modelling of a gyro-stabilized infrared electro optic gimbal system
Ozdogan, Gokhan; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2016-05-01)
In this research study, a single axis (inner azimuth gimbal) of a four-axis gyro-stabilized electro optic gimbal system is modelled through experimental investigation in the frequency domain, and the results of this investigation are presented. The dynamic behaviour of the mechanical system is obtained from input and output signals, strictly speaking, nonparametric measurements. Detecting and measuring the nonlinear distortions allows a better understanding and gives an intuitive insight into the error sour...
Antineutrino charm production and pentaquark search in the chorus experiment
Köse, Umut; Güler, Ali Murat; Department of Physics (2006)
During the years between 1994 and 1997, the emulsion target of the CHORUS experiment was exposed to the wide band neutrino beam of the CERN SPS of 27 GeV average energy collecting about 106 neutrino interactions. A measurement of induced charm production and search for anticharmed pentaquark ( 0 c ) have been performed by using the presence of a 6% component in the beam. By requiring a positive muon charge as determined by the CHORUS muon spectrometer, 46 -induced charm events were observed with ...
