In this thesis, we write explicitly the open book decompositions of links of quotient surface singularities that support the corresponding unique Milnor fillable contact structures. The page-genus of these Milnor open books are minimal among all Milnor open books supporting the corresponding unique Milnor fillable contact structures. That minimal page-genus is called Milnor genus. In this thesis we also investigate whether the Milnor genus is equal to the support genus for links of quotient surface singularities. We show that for many types of the quotient surface singularities the Milnor genus is equal to the support genus of the corresponding contact structure. For the remaining we are able to find an upper bound for the support genus which would be a step forward in understanding these contact structures.

We describe open book decompositions of links of simple surface singularities that support the corresponding unique Milnor fillable contact structures. The open books we describe are isotopic to Milnor open books.
On the Krall-type polynomials on q-quadratic lattices
Alvarez-Nodarse, R.; Adiguzel, R. Sevinik (Elsevier BV, 2011-08-01)
In this paper, we study the Krall-type polynomials on non-uniform lattices. For these polynomials the second order linear difference equation, q-basic series representation and three-term recurrence relations are obtained. In particular, the q-Racah-Krall polynomials obtained via the addition of two mass points to the weight function of the non-standard q-Racah polynomials at the ends of the interval of orthogonality are considered in detail. Some important limit cases are also discussed. (C) 2011 Royal Net...
Unified treatment of spacelike and timelike SO(3,1) Yang-Mills fields
Dundarer, AR (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2001-07-01)
SO(3, 1) valued Yang-mills fields stemming from spacelike and timelike vectors that were studied separately in earlier works are unified by introducing a parameter lambda that takes values in the interval [-1, 1].
Legendrian realization in convex Lefschetz fibrations and convex stabilizations
Akbulut, Selman; Arıkan, Mehmet Fırat (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2015-05-01)
We show that, up to a Liouville homotopy and a deformation of compact convex Lefschetz fibrations on W, any Lagrangian submanifold with trivial first de Rham cohomology group, embedded on a (symplectic) page of the (induced) convex open book on partial derivative W, can be assumed to be Legendrian in partial derivative W with the induced contact structure. This can be thought as the extension of Giroux's Legendrian realization (which holds for contact open books) for the case of convex open books. We also s...
Image segmentation and smoothing via partial differential equations
Özmen, Neslihan; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Scientific Computing (2009)
In image processing, partial differential equation (PDE) based approaches have been extensively used in segmentation and smoothing applications. The Perona-Malik nonlinear diffusion model is the first PDE based method used in the image smoothing tasks. Afterwards the classical Mumford-Shah model was developed to solve both image segmentation and smoothing problems and it is based on the minimization of an energy functional. It has numerous application areas such as edge detection, motion analysis, medical i...
