Generalized kerr-schild metrics in einstein‘s gravity

Çelik, Ufuk Can
Several aspects of the Kerr-Schild ansatz; including the generalized ansatz which has a generic background metric instead of a flat metric, Kerr-Schild groups and Classical Double Copy, are investigated. It is shown that, in vacuum, not all generalized KerrSchild spacetimes are algebraically special, whereas the Kerr-Schild spacetimes are always algebraically special. We also touch upon Kerr-Schild-Kundt spacetimes and further discuss their universality property before we continue with the Kerr-Schild groups in the next chapter where we work on the coordinate transformations leading to the generalized Kerr-Schild ansatz. Finally, we study the classical double copy proposition which relates some solutions of gravity theories with the solutions of gauge theories. To this end, we examine the correspondence between solutions of the Kerr-Schild form and the Yang-Mills solutions.


An expert system for the quantification of fault rates in construction fall accidents
Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Dikmen Toker, İrem (2016-03-01)
Introduction. Expert witness reports, prepared with the aim of quantifying fault rates among parties, play an important role in a court's final decision. However, conflicting fault rates assigned by different expert witness boards lead to iterative objections raised by the related parties. This unfavorable situation mainly originates due to the subjectivity of expert judgments and unavailability of objective information about the causes of accidents. As a solution to this shortcoming, an expert system based...
Enablers and Barriers of Blended Learning in Faculty Development
YILMAZ, YUSUF; DURAK, HALİL İBRAHİM; Yıldırım, İbrahim Soner (2022-03-01)
Introduction ; Online learning provides a ubiquitous and self-paced learning experience, while face-to-face learning encourages commitment in a prescheduled formal instruction. Blended learning (BL) combines these two mediums and provides flexible learning opportunities. While faculty development programs have utilized these two mediums separately, BL has not been fully implemented locally until recently. Identifying elements that enable or hinder faculty within a newly implemented BL program can enhance t...
Observation of the Lambda(0)(b) -> J/psi Lambda phi decay in proton-proton collisions at root s=13 TeV
Sirunyan, A. M.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2020-03-01)
The observation of the Lambda(0)(b) -> J/psi Lambda phi decay is reported using proton-proton collision data collected at root s = 13TeV by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2018, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 60fb(-1). The ratio of the branching fractions B(Lambda(0)(b) -> J/psi Lambda phi)/B(Lambda(0)(b) > psi(2S)Lambda) is measured to be (8.26 +/- 0.90 (stat) +/- 0.68 (syst) +/- 0.11 (B)) x 10(-2), where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the last uncertaint...
Amphoteric Surface Hydrogels from Hydrogen-Bonded Multilayers: Reversible Protein Uptake
Kharlampieva, Eugenia; Erel Göktepe, İrem; Sukhishvili, Svetlana (2006-10-08)
INTRODUCTION. The aim of producing bioactive materials motivated the use of hydrogels as materials which control binding, absorption and release of proteins1,2. Advantages of using multilayering to produce surface hydrogels include the applicability of the technique to virtually any substrate type, and the possibility to control the film thickness by a simple variation of the number of layers. In our study, we report on one-component hydrogels derived from hydrogen-bonded multilayers which show pH-dependent...
Discrete approaches in evolution strategies based optimum design of steel frames
Hasançebi, Oğuzhan (2007-05-30)
The three different approaches (reformulations) of evolution strategies (ESs) have been proposed in the literature as extensions of the technique for solving discrete problems. This study implements an extensive research on application, evaluation and comparison of them in discrete optimum design of steel frames. A unified formulation is first developed to explain these approaches, so that differences and similarities between their inherent search mechanisms can clearly be identified. Two examples from prac...
