Calculations of the roots of classical orthogonal polynomials: an application to gaussian quadrature

Shaidolda, Gulnaz
This thesis focuses on classical orthogonal polynomials namely Jacobi, Laguerre and Hermite polynomials and a method to calculate the roots of these polynomials is constructed. The roots are expressed as the eigenvalues of a tridiagonal matrix whose coefficients depend on the recurrence formula for the classical orthogonal polynomials. These approximations of roots are used as method of computation of Gaussian quadratures. Then the discussion of the numerical results are then introduced to deduce the efficiency of the method.


On the computation of generalized division polynomials
Küçüksakallı, Ömer (2015-01-01)
We give an algorithm to compute the generalized division polynomials for elliptic curves with complex multiplication. These polynomials can be used to generate the ray class fields of imaginary quadratic fields over the Hilbert class field with no restriction on the conductor.
Classification of skew-symmetric forms corresponding to cluster algebras with principal coefficients
Mazı, Sedanur; Seven, Ahmet İrfan; Department of Mathematics (2016)
In this thesis, we study algebraic and combinatorial properties of the skew-symmetric forms that correspond to cluster algebras with principal coefficients. We obtain a classification of these forms under congruence and compute the Arf invariants for finite types. 
Characterisation and enumeration of a class of semi bent quadratic Boolean functions
KOÇAK, Neşe; Koçak, Onur Ozan; Özbudak, Ferruh; SAYGI, ZÜLFÜKAR (2015-01-01)
In this paper, we consider semi-bentness of quadratic Boolean functions defined for even n and give the characterisation of these functions. Up to our knowledge, semi-bentness of this class has not been investigated before and we proved that semi-bent functions of this form exist only for 6|n. Furthermore, we present a method for enumeration of semi-bent and bent functions in certain classes. Using this method we find the exact number of semi-bent functions of this form. Moreover, we complete some previous ...
Randomness properties of some vector sequences generated by multivariate polynomial iterations
Gürkan Balıkçıoğlu, Pınar; Diker Yücel, Melek; Department of Cryptography (2016)
We examine the randomness properties of the sequences generated by the multivariate polynomial iterations method proposed by Ostafe and Shparlinski, by using the six different choices of polynomials given by the same authors. Our analysis is based on two approaches: distributions of the periods and linear complexities of the produced vector sequences. We define the efficiency parameters, PE for “period efficiency” and LCE for “linear complexity efficiency”, so that the actual values of the period and linear com...
A New Combinatorial Identity for Catalan Numbers
Aker, Kursat; Gursoy, Aysin Erkan (2017-10-01)
In this article, we prove a conjecture about the equality of two generating functions described in "From Parking Functions to Gelfand Pairs (Aker, Can 2012)" attached to two sets whose cardinalities are given by Catalan numbers: We establish a combinatorial bijection between the two sets on which the two generating functions were based on.
