Analysis Of Interprovincial Service Flows For The Determination Of Provincial Hierarchy In Turkey

Berkman, Gülden
In this study, the analysis of interprovincial service flows -which is treated as complementary to the analysis of interprovincial commodity flows- will be presented. Thus, the resulting optimum distribution system can formulate the interprovincial, spatial hierarchical pattern. To give the interrelationships as a whole, the analysis will be carried out at the province scale, each province being considered a region. The method of Boudeville is resorted to for the computation of service flows. However, a distinction should be made at the beginning so that the diversion from Boudeville in the interpretation of results (which aim at the achievement of spatial hierarchial pattern) is justified. A "service" can be defined as a commodity which is consumed where it is produced. Therefore, the calculation of service flows shows the attraction of people to the service-exporting centers, rather than sending services to the places of demand (importing centers). Thus, the places attracted by an exporting center form the influence area of that center.


Analysis of volatility feedback and leverage effects on the ISE30 index using high frequency data
Inkaya, A.; Okur, Y. Yolcu (Elsevier BV, 2014-03-15)
In this study, we employ the techniques of Malliavin calculus to analyze the volatility feedback and leverage effects for a better understanding of financial market dynamics. We estimate both effects for a general semimartingale model applying Fourier analysis developed in Malliavin and Mancino (2002) [10]. We further investigate their joint behaviour using 5 min data of the ISE30 index. On the basis of these estimations, we look for the evidence that volatility feedback effect rate can be employed in the s...
Assessing different sources of uncertainty in hydrological projections of high and low flows: case study for Omerli Basin, Istanbul, Turkey
Engin, Batuhan Eren; Yücel, İsmail; Yılmaz, Ayşen (2017-07-01)
This study investigates the assessment of uncertainty contribution in projected changes of high and low flows from parameterization of a hydrological model and inputs of ensemble regional climate models (RCM). An ensemble of climate projections including 15 global circulation model (GCM)/RCM combinations and two bias corrections (change factor (CF) and bias correction in mean (BC)) was used to generate streamflow series for a reference and future period using the Hydrologiska Byrans Vattenbalansavdelning (H...
Modeling and implementation of local volatility surfaces in Bayesian framework
Animoku, Abdulwahab; Uğur, Ömür; Yolcu-Okur, Yeliz (2018-06-01)
In this study, we focus on the reconstruction of volatility surfaces via a Bayesian framework. Apart from classical methods, such as, parametric and non-parametric models, we study the Bayesian analysis of the (stochastically) parametrized volatility structure in Dupire local volatility model. We systematically develop and implement novel mathematical tools for handling the classical methods of constructing local volatility surfaces. The most critical limitation of the classical methods is obtaining negativ...
Predicting financial distress of Turkish non-financial firms: evidence from micro data
Yılmaz, Muhammed Hasan; Ercan, Hakan; Department of Economics (2019)
In this thesis, determinants of financial distress probabilities are analyzed for the period over 2006-2016 by utilizing firm-level and loan-level data sets. Based on the financial distress definition constructed from the existence of non-performing loans, univariate tests indicate that financially problematic Turkish corporates have lower liquidity, profitability and asset turnover, while they are also the ones with inferior short and long-term debt paying ability. To form multivariate specifications, vari...
Computer assisted analysis of flow over spillway chutes
Kıranoğlu, Meriç; Yanmaz, A. Melih.; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
In this study, a literature review is conducted in terms of assumptions, approaches, and various calculation methods used for the analysis of flow over conventional and stepped type spillways. In guidance of this review, a software is developed to perform such analyses with the set of given data by the user, and display results with some tables and figures. To this end, water surface profile over the spillway face is determined considering air entrainment process, pressure distribution over the crest under ...
