In Pursuit of the Missing Premise in First Order Logic



Sartaş, Enfal; Turan, İsmail; Department of Physics (2022-12-02)
A growing body of experimental and observational evidence shows that Standard Model calculations account for only 5% of the mass and energy of the universe. The remainder consists of dark matter and dark energy, which have yet to be observed. The existence of dark matter, first discovered by Fritz Zwicky, suggests the presence of a hidden sector that is almost neutral under any of the forces predicted by the Standard Model. Within the framework of the portal concept, the vector portal, which brings its own ...
In Search for a Common Ground: An Empirical Derived Model of the Formation of Common Ground among Voluntary Exchange Relation
Ataöv Demirkan, Anlı (2013-12-01)
Knowledge generation is one of the main forces in collaboration, because people connect to each other in such a process under the spell of the collective knowledge constructed through conversation. The process of collective knowledge construction itself becomes a conversational process. We argue that such a process transforms underorganized exchange relations into organized group action when a common ground is built upon a shared meaning. To illustrate this, we present two cases of collaborative processes: ...

In search of free will
Küpcü Yoldaş, Aybüke; Sayan, Erdinç; Department of Philosophy (2010)
Free will is a paramount concept that is central to our everyday lives, society and moral judgements. In this thesis, I search for the conditions under which free will can exist. This is done in relation to two topics: determinism and agency. Finally, I also explore the relation between free will and several social and philosophical concepts, and discuss briefly what would be the case if there were no free will.
In-situ observation and numerical study of dynamic delamination in tapered composite laminates
Dashatan, Saeid Hosseinpour; Parnas, Kemal Levend; Çöker, Demirkan; Bozkurt, Mirac Onur; Ozen, Emine Burcin (2023-05-15)
In this study, dynamic delamination behavior in asymmetric GFRP tapered laminates under quasi-static tensile loading is investigated experimentally and numerically. Abaqus/Explicit cohesive interface modeling is utilized to simulate delamination initiation and dynamic propagation. Time-frame based delamination mechanisms predicted in simulations are compared to in-situ high-speed camera images for four geometrically asymmetric specimens containing grouped and ungrouped drop-off types. It is observed that th...
