The physics of randomness and regularities for languages in terms of random matrices

Tuncay, C.
The physics of randomness and regularities for languages (mother tongues) and their lifetimes and family trees and for the second languages (bilinguals) are studied in terms of two processes: random multiplicative noise and fragmentation. We start with various random initial worlds and come out with regularities which are all similar to the present empirical data for the above-mentioned terms. Copyright (c) EPLA, 2008.


On the space and time evolution of regular or irregular human heart or brain signals
Tuncay, C. (IOP Publishing, 2009-01-01)
A coupled map is suggested to investigate various spatial or temporal designs in biology: several cells (or tissues) in an organ are considered as connected to each other in terms of some molecular diffusions or electrical potential differences and so on. The biological systems (groups of cells) start from various initial conditions for spatial designs (or initial signals for temporal designs) and they evolve in time in terms of the mentioned interactions (connections) besides some individual feedings. The ...
The influence of instructional interactions on students' mental models about the quantization of physical observables: a modern physics course case
Korhasan, Nilufer Didis; Eryılmaz, Ali; ERKOC, ŞAKİR (IOP Publishing, 2016-01-01)
Mental models are coherently organized knowledge structures used to explain phenomena. They interact with social environments and evolve with the interaction. Lacking daily experience with phenomena, the social interaction gains much more importance. In this part of our multiphase study, we investigate how instructional interactions influenced students' mental models about the quantization of physical observables. Class observations and interviews were analysed by studying students' mental models constructe...
A search for new physics in dijet mass and angular distributions in pp collisions at root s=7 TeV measured with the ATLAS detector
Aad, G.; et. al. (IOP Publishing, 2011-05-24)
A search for new interactions and resonances produced in LHC proton-proton (pp) collisions at a centre-of-mass energy root s = 7 TeV was performed with the ATLAS detector. Using a dataset with an integrated luminosity of 36 pb(-1), dijet mass and angular distributions were measured up to dijet masses of similar to 3.5 TeV and were found to be in good agreement with Standard Model predictions. This analysis sets limits at 95% CL on various models for new physics: an excited quark is excluded for mass between...
An elementary derivation of the quantum virial theorem from Hellmann-Feynman theorem
İpekoğlu, Yusuf; Turgut, Sadi (IOP Publishing, 2016-07-01)
A simple proof of the quantum virial theorem that can be used in undergraduate courses is given. The proof proceeds by first showing that the energy eigenvalues of a Hamiltonian remain invariant under a scale transformation. Then invoking the Hellmann-Feynman theorem produces the final statement of the virial theorem.
The relationship between perceptual and social learning styles and multiple intelligences and their effects on English proficiency of Turkish young adults learning English as a foreign language
Tekiner, Aylin; Seferoğlu, Gölge; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2005)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationships between preferences of multiple intelligences, perceptual and social learning styles, and English as foreign language proficiency. Two self-report questionnaires were administered to a total of 123 participants. The results showed that dominant intelligence preference was inter-personal and major learning-style preference was kinesthetic. Pearson correlation results revealed statistically significant positive relations between interperson...
