Classifying symmetries of rational elliptic surfaces with section

This is a complex algebraic geometry talk in which I will discuss how to give a classification of the group of symmetries of rational elliptic surfaces. A rational elliptic surface is the blow up of the projective plane at the 9 base points of a pencil of cubics. Equivalently it is an algebraic surface birational to P 2 which has a map to P 1 with generic fiber an elliptic curve. Singular fibers of this map play an important role in the structure of the group of symmetries of the surface and we can obtain very useful combinatorial information from them to determine this group. The group of symmetries of a rational elliptic surface is simply the semi-direct product of an at most rank 8 abellian group which is known in the literature as the Mordell-Weil group of the surface and a finite group of order at most 24 which is a special subgroup of the group of symmetries defined in terms of the section of the map from the surface to P 1 . The Mordell-Weil group is known for every rational elliptic surface and is determined by the configuration of singular fibers, in my work I am describing the second factor of the semi-direct product structure of the group of symmetries in terms of the singular fibers.

Classification of skew-symmetric forms corresponding to cluster algebras with principal coefficients
Mazı, Sedanur; Seven, Ahmet İrfan; Department of Mathematics (2016)
In this thesis, we study algebraic and combinatorial properties of the skew-symmetric forms that correspond to cluster algebras with principal coefficients. We obtain a classification of these forms under congruence and compute the Arf invariants for finite types. 
Smooth manifolds with infinite fundamental group admitting no real projective structure
Çoban, Hatice; Ozan, Yıldıray; Department of Mathematics (2017)
In this thesis, we construct smooth manifolds with the infinite fundamental group Z_2*Z_2, for any dimension n>=4, admitting no real projective structure. They are first examples of manifolds in higher dimensions with infinite fundamental group admitting no real projective structures. The motivation of our study is the related work of Cooper and Goldman. They proved that RP^3#RP^3 does not admit any real projective structure and this is the first known example in dimension 3. 
Pseudospin and spin symmetry in Dirac-Morse problem with a tensor potential
AYDOĞDU, OKTAY; Sever, Ramazan (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-14)
Under the conditions of the pseudospin and spin symmetry, approximate analytical solutions of the Dirac-Morse problem with Coulomb-like tensor potential are presented. The energy eigenvalue equations are found and corresponding radial wave functions are obtained in terms of confluent hypergeometric functions. The energy eigenvalues are calculated numerically in the absence and presence of the tensor potential. We also investigate the contribution of the potential parameters to the energy splitting of the ps...
Inequalities for harmonic functions on spheroids and their applications
Zahariuta, V (2001-06-01)
Hadamard-type interpolational inequalities for norms of harmonic functions are studied for confocal prolate and oblate spheroids. It is shown that the optimal level domains in such inequalities may be non-spheroidal. Moreover, in contrary with the case of analytic functions, there is an unremovable gap between the corresponding optimal level domains for inner and outer versions of Hadamard-type inequalities for harmonic functions. These results are based on some special asymptotical formulas for associated ...
BASKAL, S; ERIS, A; SATIR, A (1994-12-19)
The symmetries and associated conservation laws of the SO(2,1) invariant non-linear sigma model equations in 1+1 dimensions are investigated. An infinite family of generalized local symmetries is presented and the uniqueness of these solutions is discussed.
