Some refined Schwarz-Pick lemmas


Interactive classification of satellite image content based on query by example
Dalay, Oral; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
In our attempt to construct a semantic filter for satellite image content, we have built a software that allows user to indicate a few number of image regions that contains a specific geographical object, such as, a bridge, and to retrieve similar objects on the same satellite image. We are particularly interested in performing a data analysis approach based on user interaction. User can guide the classification procedure by interaction and visual observation of the results. We have applied a two step proce...
Fostering pre-service science teachers self determined motivation toward environment through satisfaction of three basic psychological needs
Karaarslan, Güliz; Ertepınar, Hamide; Sungur, Semra; Department of Educational Sciences (2011)
The aim of this study was to examine pre-service science teachers’ self-determined motivation toward environment and investigate how their basic psychological needs that support their self-determined motivation were fullfilled during the environmental course activities. The thesis includes two main parts: a quantitative part and a qualitative part. In the quantitative part of the study, PSTs’ motivation toward environment was measured before, after and five months later following the course activities. In t...
Robust optimization approach for long-term project pricing
Balkan, Kaan; Meral, Fatma Sedef; Oğuzsoy, Cemal Berk; Department of Industrial Engineering (2010)
In this study, we address the long-term project pricing problem for a company that operates in the defense industry. The pricing problem is a bid project pricing problem which includes various technical and financial uncertainties, such as estimations of workhour content of the project and exchange & inflation rates. We propose a Robust Optimization (RO) approach that can deal with the uncertainties during the project lifecycle through the identification of several discrete scenarios. The bid project’s perf...
Analogical reasoning for risk assessment and cost overrun estimation in construction projects
Çelenligil, Onur; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
Project cost increase is the main concern in international construction projects which usually results in disputes and conflicts among the project participants. The aim of this thesis is to construct a database that represents risk event history regarding international construction projects and construct a cost overrun prediction model. It is hypothesized that magnitudes of project related, company related and country related risk factors can be predicted by assessing the level of vulnerability by analogica...
Hydraulic characteristics of tyrolean weirs
Yılmaz, Nazlı Aslıcan; Göğüş, Mustafa; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
Tyrolean type water-intake structures are widely used on mountain rivers to provide water to hydropower stations. The main concern encountered in these kinds of structures is the amount of water diverted from the main channel and sediment carried by this flow. The diverted flow should not be less than the design discharge of the hydropower station and the amount of the sediment entering the hydraulic system should be minimum. In this study a physical model of a Tyrolean weir was constructed at the Hydromech...
