Kaya, Ruşen
In this thesis, the theory of the relations between differential and integral equations is analyzed and is illustrated by the reformulation of the one-dimensional Schrödinger equation in terms of an integral equation employing the Green’s function. The Rayleigh- Ritz method is applied to the integral-equation formulation of the one-dimensional Schrödinger equation in order to approximate the eigenvalues of the corresponding singular problem within the desired accuracy. The outcomes are compared with those resulting from the methods applied to the original formulation of the problem. Consecutive symmetries are observed throughout the symmetric structure of the problem, the symmetric Green’s function, the symmetric potentials used in the method and the symmetric matrices obtained eventually.

 A Rayleigh–Ritz Method for Numerical Solutions of Linear Fredholm Integral Equations of the Second Kind Kaya, Ruşen; Taşeli, Hasan (2022-01-01) A Rayleigh–Ritz Method is suggested for solving linear Fredholm integral equations of the second kind numerically in a desired accuracy. To test the performance of the present approach, the classical one-dimensional Schrödinger equation -y″(x)+v(x)y(x)=λy(x),x∈(-∞,∞) has been converted into an integral equation. For a regular problem, the unbounded interval is truncated to x∈ [ - ℓ, ℓ] , where ℓ is regarded as a boundary parameter. Then, the resulting integral equation has been solved and the results are co...
 On the consistency of the solutions of the space fractional Schrodinger equation Bayin, Selcuk S. (2012-04-01) Recently, it was pointed out that the solutions found in the literature for the space fractional Schrodinger equation in a piecewise manner are wrong, except the case with the delta potential. We re-analyze this problem and show that an exact and a proper treatment of the relevant integral prove otherwise. We also discuss effective potential approach and present a free particle solution for the space and time fractional Schrodinger equation in general coordinates in terms of Fox's H-functions.

 On the accuracy of MFIE and CFIE in the solution of large electromagnetic scattering problems Ergül, Özgür Salih (null; 2006-11-10) We present the linear-linear (LL) basis functions to improve the accuracy of the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) and the combined-field integral equation (CFIE) for three-dimensional electromagnetic scattering problems involving large scatterers. MFIE and CFIE with the conventional Rao-Wilton-Glisson (RWG) basis functions are significantly inaccurate even for large and smooth geometries, such as a sphere, compared to the solutions by the electric-field integral equation (EFIE). By using the LL funct...
 An integral equation approach to the computation of nonlinear fields in electrical machines Kükrer, Osman; Ertan, H. Bülnet (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1988-7) A numerical method based on an integral equation formulation, for the computation of nonlinear magnetostatic field, in two dimensions in cylindrical polar coordinates is given. The correctness of the method is illustrated by solving two linear two-dimensional magnetic field problems which have readily available analytical solutions. The dependence of the accuracy of the solution on the number and distribution of the meshes is studied on these examples. The method is then applied to the computation of the no...
 Novel strategies for second-kind integral equations to analyze perfect electric conductors Güler, Sadri; Ergül, Özgür Salih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019) In this thesis, the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) for three-dimensional perfectly conducting objects is studied with a particular focus on the solutions of the formulation with the method of moments employing low-order discretization elements. Possible discretization functions and their applications in the testing of MFIE while considering different numbers of testing points are analyzed for accurate and efficient solutions. Successful results are obtained by using rotational Buffa-Christiansen te...
