Salih Zeki's First Lecture in Daru'l-funun Konferanslan: Locating its Main Source

Salih Zeki presented a series of lectures on mathematics, which were later published in the old Turkish script. They are about certain developments and fields that arose in mathematics in the 19th century. He talks in a concise and historical manner about non-Euclidean geometries and their discovery in the first five lectures of the first volume. In the first lecture, he presents the gist of his views concerning how these geometries were discovered.

Turkish press and the Turkish-Greek relations (1946-1955)
Emen Gökatalay, Gözde; Boyar, Ebru; Department of International Relations (2017)
This thesis examined the role of the Turkish press in the course of the Turkish-Greek relations from 1946 to 1955.

Over the course of the period, however, the golden age of the Turkish-Greek relations was waned, and these two partners gradually turned against each other. Using the most circulated and...
