Noncommutative geometry and the Higgs boson masses
Catal-Ozer, A; Dereli, T (2001-04-01)
We study a noncommutative generalization of the standard electroweak model proposed by Balakrishna, Gursey, and Wali [Phys. Lett. B 254, 430 (1991)] that is formulated in terms of the derivations Der(2)(M-3) of a three-dimensional representation of the su(2) Lie algebra of weak isospin. The linearized Higgs field equations and the scalar boson mass eigenvalues are explicitly given. A light Higgs boson with a mass around 130 GeV together with four very heavy scalar bosons are predicted.

Investigation of cell migration and proliferation in agarose based hydrogels for tissue engineering applications
Vardar, Elif; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2010)
Hydrogels are three dimensional, insoluble, porous and crosslinked polymer networks. Due to their high water content, they have great resemblance to natural tissues, and therefore, demonstrate high biocompatibility. The porous structure provides an aqueous environment for the cells and also allows influx of nutrients needed for cellular viability. In this study, a natural biodegradable material, agarose (Aga), was used and semi-interpenetrating networks (semi-IPN) were prepared with polymers having differen...
Implementation of constructivist Life Sciences curriculum: a case study
Taneri, Pervin Oya; Engin Demir, Cennet; Department of Educational Sciences (2010)
The purpose of this qualitative case study is threefold: (1) to examine the implementation of current Life Sciences curriculum in a selected primary school from the perspectives of teachers, students and administrators; (2) to investigate the degree to which teachers’, students’ and administrators’ perceptions were embedded in the classroom practices; and (3) to identify whether the implementation of the curriculum was conducive to principles of constructivist pedagogy. An elementary school was chosen as a ...
The concepts of health and sickness in Nietzsche's philosophy
Akbalık, Bilge; Parkan, Barış; Department of Philosophy (2009)
The purpose of the present study is to assess the role of the concepts of health and sickness in Nietzsche’s philosophy. While doing this, our basic presupposition will be that these concepts owe their special place to their being the new criteria for Nietzsche’s project of revaluation of all existing values. Nietzsche was philosophizing in the face of the crisis of 19th century Europe, that is, nihilism. According to him, Western traditional thought is based on an otherworldly oriented conception of life t...
