Çıngıloğlu, Kıvanç Yiğit
In this thesis, a non-minimal extension of the SM with an additional non-abelian SU(2) symmetry is studied. Hidden sector opens innumerable portals for apprehension of theories beyond the SM, hence there is a wide set of gauge extensions with their own symmetries, providing viable DM candidates. Higgs mechanism and Higgs particle play a crucial role to understand how DM weakly interacts with the SM particles. There may exist unrevealed intensity frontiers in Higgs’ decay modes, and the DM can show up through those interaction channels. Although DM has not been observed so far, there are strong evidences and indirect observations for its existence. Imposing these observational constraints on the results of non-minimal ex- tensive model, a consistent region for parameter space of the DM candidates can be expressed via methods of statistical physics. One of the first DM abundance studies has been written by Lee and Weinberg in 1977 by considering evolution of DM after it decouples from the cosmic heat reservoir. But in original work, only annihilation channels of the DM are considered. However the model can be extended to include coannihilation channels as well, provided that the associated Feynman diagrams are given including dark sector particles. In this study, such extensions will be explored.

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...
Experimental and numerical study of process-induced total spring-in of corner-shaped composite parts
Cicek, K. Furkan; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve; Kayran, Altan (2017-07-01)
Process-induced total spring-in of corner-shaped composite parts manufactured via autoclave-forming technique using unidirectional prepreg is studied both numerically and experimentally. In the numerical study, a three-dimensional finite element model which takes into account the cure shrinkage of the resin, anisotropic material properties of the composite part and the tool-part interaction is developed. The outcome of the numerical model is verified experimentally. For this purpose, U-shaped composite part...
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.
First order and second order phase transitions in quartz and related materials
Lider, Mustafa Cem; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Department of Physics (2017)
The mechanism of the phase transitions in quartz and in the related materials is investigated. First order and second order transitions are explained on the basis of various models using experimental data from literature. Inparticular, the Landau phenomenological theory is employed in terms of the order parameters and the temperature- pressure (T-P) phase diagram is constructed for those materials of interest. The sym- metry change of crystal structure is also analyzed by using group theory. The thermodynam...
Theory of disordered unconventional superconductors
Keleş, Ahmet; Spivak, B. Z.; Kivelson, S. A. (2014-12-01)
In contrast to conventional s-wave superconductivity, unconventional (e.g., p- or d-wave) superconductivity is strongly suppressed even by relatively weak disorder. Upon approaching the superconductormetal transition, the order parameter amplitude becomes increasingly inhomogeneous, leading to effective granularity and a phase ordering transition described by the Mattis model of spin glasses. One consequence of this is that at sufficiently low temperatures, between the clean unconventional superconducting a...
