Coefficients of folding polynomials attached to Lie algebras of rank two
Aydoğdu, Muhammed; Küçüksakallı, Ömer; Department of Mathematics (2021-7-9)
Let g be a Lie algebra over a field F, and let h be a Cartan subalgebra of g. The dual space h∗ of h forms a root system. Reflections in the hyperplanes orthogonal to the simple roots of h∗ generate the Weyl group of g. If...
Stacky formulations of Einstein gravity
Berktav, Kadri İlker; Kişisel, Ali Ulaş Özgür; Tekin, Bayram; Department of Mathematics (2021-5-28)
This is a thesis on higher structures in geometry and physics. Indeed, the current work involves an extensive and relatively self-contained investigation of higher categorical and stacky structures in (vacuum) Einstein gra...
Algebraic properties of the Richard Thompson’s groupfand its applications in cryptography
Yeter, Hakan; Benli, Mustafa Gökhan; Department of Mathematics (2021-3-05)
Thompson’s groupsF,TandV, especiallyF, are widely studied groups in grouptheory. With their unique properties, they appear and become counterexamples formany general problems in different areas of mathematics. Developm...
Limit monomial groups
Bostan, Sezen; Kuzucuoğlu, Mahmut; Department of Mathematics (2021-3-03)
In this thesis, monomial groups, which are obtained by using strictly diagonal embeddings of complete monomial groups over a group of finite degree, are studied. The direct limit of complete monomial groups of finite degre...
Learning how to create lesson plans: first year preservice mathematics teachers’ experience in university within school model

About the decomposability of almost completely decomposable groups
Budak, Canan; Solak, Ebru; Department of Mathematics (2020-8)
Almost completely decomposable groups are extensions of completely decomposable groups of finite index. They can be written as a sum of indecomposables. Every almost completely decomposable group is the direct sum of indec...
Implementation of the peer-led team learning (PLTL) model to Turkish context: its effect on undergraduate engineering students’ academic performances and anxiety in general chemistry course
