Causality in curved space
Aljasem Alashour, Bassem; Tekin, Bayram; Department of Physics (2018)
The notion of Causality is a key concept in formulating theories that describe real physical systems. So when a proposed model violates this concept this usually signals the existence of an error in the conceptual formulation or in the physical understanding of the results, which might indicate to us which models should we pursue, modify or drop all together. In this work the possibility of causality violations introduced by modifying Einstein gravity is studied using the idea of the time-delay introduced t...
Causal mapping to explore emergence of construction disputes
Tanriverdi, Cenk; Atasoy Özcan, Güzide; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (2021-05-24)
Disputes, frequently encountered in construction projects, can substantially affect project success, necessitating a clear understanding of how and why disputes occur. Previous studies on disputes mostly yielded exhaustive lists or hierarchies of possible causes of disputes, which can hardly be used to understand how these causes come together to form a dispute. To address this gap, this study provides an alternative approach to understand the underlying causes of disputes, and their relationship within a s...
Causal determinants, reasons, and substantive autonomy: A critical approach to agency
Baç, Mutlu Murat (2007-01-01)
Although the notion of agency presents itself as an attractive solution to the puzzle of free will, it faces a problem vis-a-vis the nature of reasons that are purported to lie behind actions. In this paper I first point out the significance of a paradigm shift that emerges with the agency view. Then I argue that the agency theories nonetheless fail in general to give a satisfactory account of various sorts of reasons underlying our actions and choices. In trying to enlighten the multi-faceted nature of act...

A spectral representation for the Green's functions of the free fermionic Ramond-Neveu-Schwarz string is obtained. This representation is valid for any initial and final string configurations and it manifests an exponential growth of spectral densities intrinsic in nonlocalizable theories. The causal and singular properties of the propagators are considered.
