Yılmaz, Yağmur
Persistent homology is an algebraic method for understanding topological features of discrete objects or data (finite set of points with metric defined on it). In algebraic topology, the Mayer Vietoris sequence is a powerful tool which allows one to study the homology groups of a given space in terms of simpler homology groups of its subspaces. In this thesis, we study to what extent does persistent homology benefit from Mayer Vietoris sequence.

Van Kampen theorem for persistent fundamental group
Batan, Mehmet Ali; Pamuk, Mehmetcik; Department of Mathematics (2019)
Persistent homotopy is one of the newest algebraic topology methods in order to understand and capture topological features of discrete objects or point data clouds (the set of points with metric defined on it). On the other hand, in algebraic topology, the Van Kampen Theorem is a great tool to determine fundamental group of complicated spaces in terms of simpler subspaces whose fundamental groups are already known. In this thesis, we show that Van Kampen Theorem is still valid for the persistent fundamenta...

REFLECTION GROUP RELATIONS ARISING FROM CLUSTER ALGEBRAS
Seven, Ahmet İrfan (American Mathematical Society (AMS), 2016-11-01)
There is a well-known analogy between cluster algebras and Kac-moody algebras: roughly speaking, Kac-Moody algebras are associated with symmetrizable generalized Cartan matrices while cluster algebras correspond to skew-symmetrizable matrices. In this paper, we study an interplay between these two classes of matrices. We obtain relations in the Weyl groups of Kac-Moody algebras that come from mutation classes of skew-symmetrizable matrices. More precisely, we establish a set of relations satisfied by the re...
CLUSTER ALGEBRAS AND SEMIPOSITIVE SYMMETRIZABLE MATRICES
Seven, Ahmet İrfan (American Mathematical Society (AMS), 2011-05-01)
There is a particular analogy between combinatorial aspects of cluster algebras and Kac-Moody algebras: roughly speaking, cluster algebras are associated with skew-symmetrizable matrices while Kac-Moody algebras correspond to (symmetrizable) generalized Cartan matrices. Both classes of algebras and the associated matrices have the same classification of finite type objects by the well-known Cartan-Killing types. In this paper, we study an extension of this correspondence to the affine type. In particular, w...
A model for the computation of quantum billiards with arbitrary shapes
Erhan, Inci M.; Taşeli, Hasan (Elsevier BV, 2006-10-01)
An expansion method for the stationary Schrodinger equation of a three-dimensional quantum billiard system whose boundary is defined by an arbitrary analytic function is introduced. The method is based on a coordinate transformation and an expansion in spherical harmonics. The effectiveness is verified and confirmed by a numerical example, which is a billiard system depending on a parameter.
