In this chapter we present a thread-based approach for analyzing synchronous collaborative math problem-solving activities. Threading information is shown to be an important resource for analyzing collaborative activities, especially for conducting sequential analysis of interaction among participants of a small group. We propose a computational model based on thread information, which allows us to idenepsy patterns of interaction and their sequential organization in computer-supported collaborative environments like VMT. This approach enables us to understand important features of collaborative math problem solving in a chat environment and to envisage several useful implications for educational and design purposes. KeywordsSequential organization–threading–problem-solving patterns

Convergence performance of the approximate factorization methods with multi-block implicit boundary conditions at hypersonic speeds
Koca, Melikşah; Eyi, Sinan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2022-9)
This thesis study presents convergence characteristics of the implicit approximate factorization methods at hypersonic flow conditions and with 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional geometries. The efficiency of the implicit boundary conditions at block interfaces for the multi-block grids is investigated for different approximate factorization methods. Standard Alternating Direction Implicit (ADI) method, Diagonal Dominant Alternating Direction Implicit method (DDADI) with and without Huang’s sub-iteration corre...
Numerical Constructions of Testing Functions for Improving the Accuracy of MFIE and CFIE in Multi-Frequency Applications
Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Altinoklu, Askin; Ergül, Özgür Salih (EMW Publishing, 2016-01-01)
We present a new approach based on numerical constructions of testing functions for improving the accuracy of the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) and the combined-field integral equation (CFIE) with low-order discretizations. Considering numerical solutions, testing functions are designed by enforcing the compatibility of the MFIE systems with the accurate coefficients obtained by solving the electric-field integral equation (EFIE). We demonstrate the accuracy improvements on scattering problems, wh...
Domain-Structured Chaos in a Hopfield Neural Network
Akhmet, Marat (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2019-12-30)
In this paper, we provide a new method for constructing chaotic Hopfield neural networks. Our approach is based on structuring the domain to form a special set through the discrete evolution of the network state variables. In the chaotic regime, the formed set is invariant under the system governing the dynamics of the neural network. The approach can be viewed as an extension of the unimodality technique for one-dimensional map, thereby generating chaos from higher-dimensional systems. We show that the dis...
Numerical Design of Testing Functions for the Magnetic-Field Integral Equation
Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2016-04-15)
We present a novel numerical approach to design testing functions for the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE). Enforcing the compatibility of matrix equations derived from MFIE and the electric-field integral equation (EFIE) for the same problem, testing weights for MFIE are determined on given templates of testing functions. The resulting MFIE systems produce more accurate results that the conventional MFIE implementations, without increasing the number of iterations and processing time. The design pro...
